RETURN TO PLAY It was fantastic to welcome our Coiste na nÓg and U17 players back to Con Brosnan Park last week.  Thank you to all of the players, parents, coaches and covid supervisors for helping to make the transition back to training as seamless as possible.  Please continue to complete the Return to Play online Health Questionnaires before each training session and use the sanitiser provided at the entrance to the pitch.  With our senior players returning later this month it is a very positive step towards normal GAA activities.

HISTORY The months of April and May, 1921 saw a lot of bloodshed in the parish of Moyvane-Knockanure. On Thursday, April 7 Mick Galvin, an IRA volunteer, was killed during an ambush at Kilmorna in Knockanure. On April 14, 1921 Sir Arthur Vicars was shot in reprisal at Kilmorna House, his residence.Then on May 12 Paddy Dalton, Paddy Walsh and Jerry Lyons were shot by the Black and Tans at Gortaglanna. Their comrade Con Dee made a miraculous escape. On Thursday, May 26 Jack Sheehan was shot in Moinvionlach bog as he attempted to escape capture by the Crown forces. To commemorate these events, the North Kerry Republican Soldiers Memorial Committee is asking that each household light a candle on Wednesday, May 12, the centenary of the Gortaglanna tragedy, at 9.00pm. Fr Kevin has very generously sponsored commemorative candles which can be collected by parishioners at all Masses next weekend (May 8/9).

HOME IS ALWAYS HOME: Paddy O’Carroll came home last week, but this time he came home to be laid to rest in the family plot in St. Michael’s Cemetery, Listowel. Mary McAleese, our former president, on a visit to America, summed it up when she said, “The immigrant’s heart marches to the beat of two quite different drums, one from the old homeland and the other from the new”. She could easily have been referring to Paddy. Although he had lived away from home since 1965, he never forgot where he came from. Knockanure always called him back and on the day of his funeral Knockanure played it’s part again. His funeral was in the age old tradition of an Irish funeral and no country does funerals better than this country. Sympathy to his family at home and abroad. May he rest in peace with the generations that came before him. Keep the memories alive.
