A special word of thanks to all those who contributed in any way to Fr O’Hanlon’s ‘testimonial’ night on Fri 21st Aug, those who organised the event – the Parish P. C. and others- , those who sent cards, greetings, donations of any kind, and all who made the effort to come and be present for the occasion. It will be cherished.
As the poet wrote many years ago:
“The fairest things have fleetest end,
“Their scent survives their close.
But the rose’s scent is bitterness
To him that loved the rose.”
And as the poet wrote much earlier:
“Sunt lacrimae rerum, et mentem mortalia tangunt.”
