Big welcome back for Fr Aquin
There was a very welcome surprise for Mass goers in Fermoy on Sunday last with the return after almost four months of illness of the popular Adm Rev Fr Aquin Casey to resume his duties in the Parish.
Fr Casey, who expressed his delight at being back again, thanked all for their wonderful welcome and for all the messages of support he received while sick. He also had some very praiseworthy things to say about his two younger Curates Frs P J O'Driscoll and Damien Lynch for the manner in which they faced up to the challenge of running the very busy Parish of Fermoy in his absence.
They saw the Parish through a very busy four month period which included Advent, Christmas, Lent, The Spring Stations and more recently the Easter Ceremonies, he thanked them for their support to him and their dedication to the people of the Parish. I believe all the parishioners agree with him there.
