Farewell to Parish Priest

large crowd of parishioners, family members, local clergy and friends came together in
Tinryland G.F.C on Friday last to bid farewell to Fr John McEvoy P.P on his transfer to
Paulstown/ Goresbridge. Mr Eamonn Byrne was a very capable M.C on the night. Many
accolades were paid to Fr. McEvoy on his 9 years ministry in the parish by
representatives from Parish Council, I.C.A, B.O.M of Tinryland N.S, St Joseph's
Society/Choir and many others. He was thanked for his constant availability and
willingness to help his parishioners always. He was also commended on the structural
work done in the village, and the beautiful refurbishment of the Church. Parish Council
secretary Mrs Pauline Cleary presented him with an I- Pad and a cheque. A superb supper
was provided on the night by many local volunteers. The people were entertained by local
talent which rounded off a very enjoyable evening. A bouquet was presented to his
faithful housekeeper Bridie. He is wished every health and success in his new ministry.
