Sympathy of the community is extended to Helen Clifford (née Creedon) of Surrey, England and formerly of Main Street, Tarbert on the death of her husband William, formerly of Croom, County Limerick. William died on Thursday 2 June in the Royal Free Hospital, London and it was his wish to be buried with his parents in Croom. Requiem Mass for William took place in St Mary’s Church, Croom on Thursday 16 June followed by interment in Reilig Mhuire. Helen who taught for many years in England is the daughter of the late Brendan and Eithne Creedon.

Sympathy also to the family of the late Maurice (Mossie) Kearney formerly of Kilbaha, Moyvane who died in Manchester, England on 22 May. His Requiem Mass took place on Friday 17 June in the Church of the Assumption, Moyvane followed by interment in Kilnaughtin Cemetery, Tarbert with his late wife Anna Marie (née Cregan). Anna Marie was born in Ardmore, Tarbert and died on 13 August 2021. Beannacht Dé lena h-anamacha uasal dílis.

Tarbert National School

The local National School was again in the spotlight this week. On Thursday last 16 June at 8.30pm there was a large rally of parents, grandparents, teachers and children at the National School in support of the Board of Management’s decision to fight for the retention of a teacher. The School would lose a teacher because the School was one pupil short of the magical number of 138 pupils at the end of September 2021. The School will now have that number and with the influx of the Ukrainian refugee children it is hoped that Minister for Education, Norma Foley TD will intervene to retain the teacher. Dail Deputies Pa Daly and Michael Healy-Rae together with local Councillors Michael Foley and Mikie Kennelly attended the rally and promised their support. As we go to press, the good news came through on Friday that the Department of Education had reversed its decision and Tarbert would be retaining its teacher.

Samantha’s fundraiser

Well done to Samantha Martin, Tieraclea Park, Tarbert who organised a slow motor bike race at the Lanterns on Saturday 11 June. The event which was well attended by motor-bike enthusiasts from near and far raised €1,506 for the Irish Community Air Ambulance which is based in Cork. Samantha is pursuing a career as an Ambulance paramedic. She has written and illustrated a children’s story book ‘Rapid Response’ on the essential role played by the air ambulance in an emergency situation, proceeds which went to the Air Ambulance fund. We wish Samantha well in her training and future career.

Fr O’Neill remembered

Quite a few from the locality attended the funeral recently of Fr Charles O’Neill who went to his eternal reward on Sunday May 29. They went along to pay their respects to a priest for whom they had the highest regard.

Fr Charlie, who was Parish Priest of Templeglantine from August 1996 to June 1990 endeared himself to the community with his kind word and deeds and understanding. He loved being among the people and getting involved in local happenings. He had a great interest in sport and encouraged young people to get involved. He took a great interest in the annual Sale of Work and helped considerably towards its success.

Fr O’Neill, a native of Drombanna, was ordained to the priesthood in 1950 and served as curate in various parishes before being appointed as parish priest of Glenroe in 1979 and from which he moved to our parish seven years later. On leaving Templeglantine he stepped down as parish priest and was appointed a Curate in Ballyagran. He retired in 2007. Reposing took place at St Coleman’s Church, Colemanswell and the Requiem Mass was celebrated in St Michael’s Church, Ballyagran with burial afterwards in Colemanswell Church grounds.

I bhFlaitheas Dé go raibh a anam uasal.
