Summer has been for many a
time of well-deserved holidays and recreational
activities. We hope all our readers have had some
opportunity to relax and re-charge the proverbial
batteries before the advent of the traditional
Autumnal madness! Here in Monkstown parish
church, we have had a busy summer of heritage led
activities and it has been good to see the church
doors open for Summer of Heritage and Heritage
Week. Our sincere thanks to Etain Murphy and Jean
Boydell and their helpers for all their hard work and
preparations for our exhibitions and welcoming of
visitors and pilgrims.
Our thanks also to Liz Neill-Watson, Sue McHugh and helpers for organising the
annual village Art Exhibition in the Knox Hall which
was a visual treat and social success. Our thanks also
to the many artists who displayed their arts and crafts
and to the National Maritime Museum, Cafe du
Journal, Searsons and George Stevens furniture
removals for all their kindness and support.
of course sees the return of parish organisations after
the summer recess and we wish them a successful
year of activities ahead. Monkstown parish church
will be open on Culture Night for tours, organ recitals
and heritage activities on Friday 22 September from
5.00pm to 11.00pm. Please do come along and join us
for the evening.
The annual community Harvest
Festival takes place at 7.30pm on Sunday 8 October.
