Rathkeale, Askeaton, Castletown and Kilnaughtin

Priest-in-Charge: The Revd Canon Patrick Comerford,
The Rectory, Askeaton, Co Limerick.

Summer is often a quiet time in parishes throughout the Church of Ireland. But summer this year is filled with the celebration of baptisms, the fun of barbecues, the news of book launches and fundraisers, and plans for the Harvest.

Tamsin Anabel Foley, daughter of Nicky White (Nantinan) and Rob Foley (Cork) , who were married in Saint Mary’s Church Askeaton, last year, is being baptised in Saint Mary’s on 21 July.

Congratulations to Ann Drew, members of Askeation/Ballysteen ICA, and their neighbours and friends, who recently raised over €2,100 for Milford Hospice on Sunflower Day, 7 June.

New book on ‘Marriage and the Irish’

Marriage and the Irish: a Miscellany is a new book edited by Professor Salvador Ryan of Saint Patrick’s College, Maynooth. It is published by Wordwell and was launched recently in the Royal Irish Academy. Patrick has two chapters in this book, both with Church of Ireland connections.

Other contributors to this book with Limerick connections include David Bracken, the Limerick diocesan archivist, Dom Colmán Ó Clabaigh, a monk of Glenstal Abbey, and Dr Catherine Swift of Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick.

This is an edited version of the parish notes for the Rathkeale and Kilnaughtin Group of Parishes in the July 2019 edition of ‘Newslink,’ the magazine of the Church of Ireland United Diocese of Limerick, Killaloe and Ardfert (pp 32-33).
