We had a great pilgrimage trip to Clonmacnoise today Saturday 7th October. People from the 5 parishes of Glasnevin, Iona Road, Ballymun Road, Corpus Christi and Ballygall joined together as part of the grouping together. it was a great day. Trish from Iona Rd with our own Breda O’Doherty organised a great trip. Bus to Athlone, Boat trip up the Shannon to Clonmacnoise. Beautiful scones on the boat. Then a guided tour followed by a prayerful “Station” walk. Led by Breda from here, also Mary O Luanaigh from Glasnevin, Marie Cronin & Angela Moloney from OLV, Joe Peelo from Corpus Christi and Des Sutton representing Iona Rd. We reflected on St Ciaran and the monastic life there with reference to events in our church of today. We remembered all those at home especially those unable to be with us from the Group.
The afternoon finished of with a lovely bowl of soup and sandwich to keep us going for the journey home refreshed both in body and spirit.
Well done to all who took part and especially to those who organised the trip.
Can’t wait for the next one.
