I would like to wish all my family & friends on McHale Road and in the town a very HAPPY CHRISTMAS and a safe, healthy and hopefully prosperous New Year in 2012. My wife Frances and I are spending this Christmas in the UK with our daughter Katey and her family. We are also joined by our daughter Rachael & her family who have also flown over from Canada to celebrate with us. It will indeed be a very special Christmas as we will have all of our 7 wonderful grandchildren with us here. Indeed a Christmas for us to remember.
At this time of year I always look back to my Christmasses spent on McHale Road. I fondly remember going out with the choir led by Fr.Shannon (r.i.p) and singing carols all around the town. This really got one into the Christmas spirit. Joining in my all time favourite carols, The First Noel, Silent night, Adeste Fideles...ah those were the days long ago when Christmas was a time when peace reigned and we listened for the words of Tiny Tim in Dickens's Christmas Carol classic "God Bless us, everyone".
May the peace and joy of Christas be with you all.
