 Today’s readings offer us an opportunity to examine our relationship with possessions. The Vikings believed you could take riches with you when you died, and filled boats with treasures to take into the afterlife. We know that we come into this world with nothing and leave with nothing. Rather than collecting riches for ourselves, our thoughts should be on ‘heavenly things, not on the things that are on the earth’. What treasures are important to us?



Emly Community Council, at short notice, were able to purchase two lots of land (either side of the road at the entrance to Glen Court.) The land with fees etc cost €6,000,  Both plots are eminently suitable for development  to the benefit of the whole community (e.g. playground etc.) We appeal to all community members to become involved with the project,
