Farewell celebrations for Fr. Eamonn
Fr Hayden's return to Zambia was marked last Friday night by a
farewell mass in Tinryland Church, followed by a get together of his
family and friends in Tinryland G.F.C. The local I.C.A presented him
with a cheque for 500 euro, which was the proceeds of their cookery
book launch last Christmas. This book was printed to commemorate 50
year's of I.C.A in the parish. There were also presentations from
Tinryland G.F.C clubs, Bennekerry/Tinryland ladies football club, St.
Joseph's soccer club and Tinryland Apostolic society. Fr Eamonn
thanked all associated with the event, and the gifts would be much
appreciated on the mission in Zambia on his return this week. Mrs
Josie Kelly was a very capable M.C on the night.
