Many thanks to John Power, Clarecastle for these fine photographs. On Saturday, 10th January we gathered in the church in Ballyea to give thanks for, and celebrate, Fr Harry Bradys ministry in our parish. It was a very fitting tribute to his inclusive style to see the amount of people who contributed to making this evening such a special event. Community and parish groups were represented throughout the Mass, and the choir was a combined choir from Clarecastle and Ballyea choirs. Afterwards we adjourned to Ballyea Hall where our primary difficulty was to choose from the amazing array of food that had been created mainly by generous parishioners! John Lynch led a fine group of musicians so there was a great atmosphere in the hall with laughter, stories and music until late. Thank you Fr Harry for all you have made possible here in your time as parish priest. May you enjoy the rest of your time here with us now in your new role.
