Once again this year we will be meeting from 1 pm for refreshments in the Old Malthouse Templemore,very kindly provided by Francis Murphy and his staff, leaving for Cashel at 2 pm to arrive at 3 pm in Scoil Chormaic, all toys will be handed over on arrival in Cashel. Along with the staff and children of Scoil Chormaic we would be delighted if as many people as possible would join the run on the day along with any toy donations on the day or any toy donations can also be dropped into Greys funeral home from now until the 15th of December. So please share far and wide for this super event. Thanks for all your continued support over the years Eamonn Grey and Louise Grey

This year’s poem, by Cathy Hogan:
It is so hard to ever understand,
The ways of God and his Master Plan,
Why is it that we’re left to cry,
When he takes our loved ones to the sky.
There are no answers, it just feels so wrong,
And it’s hard to cope and always be strong,
Our lives are shattered, our hearts so sore,
There’ll be this empty space for ever more,
But we will find strength from the one we love,
They watch us from where they rest above,
They walk with us, they hold our hand,
And try to help us understand,
That their spirit did not ever die,
They just earned their wings and learned to fly,
And when we struggle to get through the day,
Angel signs will come our way,
A soft white feather sent from the sky,
Or a perfect coloured butterfly,
A rainbow after the storm has gone,
Random playing of a favourite song,
And we will travel often down memory lane,
To meet our loved ones time and time again,
And when grief’s shadow rises,
To let the sun once more shine through,
I pray you will find the strength to smile,
As your Angel walks with you x
