OUR PRAYERS ARE REQUESTED for T. J. Brady, whose funeral took place in Drumalee on Wednesday last.  We extend sympathy to his wife, daughters, brothers, sisters and all the family circle.  May his soul rest in peace.



Your generosity to the St. Patrick’s Day Collection will help:

- Support Irish Missionaries in African countries.

- Provide support to the Irish Emigrant Chaplaincy abroad.

- Educate African priests, three of whom work in our diocese.

- Give that hand up to those struggling.



I arise today  through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,

Through belief in the Threeness, Through confession of the Oneness

of the Creator of creation.


 I arise today through the strength of Christ's birth with His baptism,

Through the strength of His crucifixion with His burial,

Through the strength of His resurrection with His ascension,

Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.


I arise today through the strength of the love of cherubim,

In the obedience of angels, In the service of archangels, 

In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward,

In the prayers of patriarchs, In the predictions of prophets,

In the preaching of apostles, In the faith of confessors,

In the innocence of holy virgins, In the deeds of righteous men.


I arise today, through the strength of heaven, The light of the sun,

The radiance of the moon, The splendor of fire,

The speed of lightning, The swiftness of wind,

The depth of the sea, The stability of the earth, The firmness of rock.


I arise today, through

God's strength to pilot me, God's might to uphold me,

God's wisdom to guide me, God's eye to look before me,

God's ear to hear me, God's word to speak for me,

God's hand to guard me, God's shield to protect me,

God's host to save me From snares of devils, From temptation of vices, From everyone who shall wish me ill, afar and near.


 I summon today

All these powers between me and those evils,

Against every cruel and merciless power that may oppose my body and soul,

Against incantations of false prophets,

Against black laws of pagandom, Against false laws of heretics,

Against craft of idolatry, Against spells of witches and smiths and wizards,

Against every knowledge that corrupts man's body and soul; 

Christ to shield me today against poison, against burning,

Against drowning, against wounding,

So that there may come to me an abundance of reward.


Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me,

Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right,

Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,

Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,

Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,

Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.


I arise today through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,

Through belief in the Threeness, Through confession of the Oneness

of the Creator of creation.

2008 was another year in which the semi-final hurdle of the Intermediate Football Championship proved too high for Drumlane. However, new club secretary Jimmy Kelly gives plenty of reason to believe why the Sons of O’Connell shouldn’t have any fears heading into the future.

As the sun set on the final day of the 2008 Fleadh Ceoil an Cabhain all attention was drawn to the Drumlane Bar where revellers were treated to one of the most memorable sessions held there in recent times.
03 - 06 - 2008
Day 3 of Fleadh Ceoil an Cabhain 2008 was competition day for a lot of the younger musicians and dancers. Local rock outfit, Ian I Brow provided an extra musical dimension to proceedings. Brendan Smith T.D. and other local politicians were also in attendance. Small groups of musicians had also set up in every corner and alcove around the village to provide mini sessions for a very appreciative audience. See below for images of the day.
01 - 06 - 2008
For day 2 of Fleadh Ceoil an Cabhain 2008 a veritable host of talent was on display, from local musicians and dancers to those whose dedication to a tune had brought them from further afield. See photos of the night's entertainment.
