Tidy  Cemetery

A  Sound  Tradition

Last Wednesday,12th Sept., was St. Ailbe’s Day

Previous generations of Emly families named  their sons after him – either first name or second Girls were called Ailbhe. It would be good to revive this sound tradition. Grandparents might recommend it when a grandchild is born.



Keep   The  Memories   Alive

It’s just three weeks since Pope Francis visited Ireland and the World Meeting of Families took place at the R.D.S. in Dublin. Do we still talk about it or is it pushed to the back of our minds?


40,000 attended the 3-day Meeting at the R.D.S.

70,000 were in Croke Park.

300,000 attended Mass in the Phoenix Park,

500,000 watched the entire Mass on RTE t.v.,

one million watched some or all of the Mass.

These figures count for something!


It is important that we continue to talk about the Pope’s Visit and the World Meeting,

and draw strength from these major events.
