"Weep with those who weep." (Rom. 12.15)

Last Friday 24th January, it was with great sadness that the Parish Community of Saggart, Rathcoole, Brittas and Newcastle learned of the sudden deaths of Conor (9), Darragh (7), and Carla (3) McGinley, Parsons Court, Newcastle. Both Conor and Darragh were students in Scoil Chrónáin, Rathcoole, and Carla attended the Happy Feet Crèche, Rathcoole.

Our thoughts and prayers are with both the McGinley and Morley families and their friends at this time.

The Parish Team are available to offer support and comfort to the family and members of the community over the coming days. A book of condolences is available in St Finian’s Church, Newcastle.

"Now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face." (1 Cor. 13.12)

Funeral Mass

The Funeral Mass for the repose of the souls of the late Conor, Darragh and Carla McGinley will be celebrated at 11 a.m., Friday 31st, in the Church of the Holy Family, Rathcoole. The chief celebrant will be Fr Kevin Doherty, and Fr John Gilligan will concelebrate the Mass.

Please note: to acknowledge the solemnity of the Mass, and out of respect and sensitivity to the family, friends and colleagues of the deceased, the use of personal or media cameras within the church or the church grounds is not permitted.

Journalists are respectfully requested to direct all queries concerning the Funeral Liturgy to the Communications Office of the Archdiocese of Dublin.

Details on the Funeral Liturgy will be published before the Mass on, embargoed for publication until midday.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

New Decade, New Road. Dia linn!

May God be with us as we venture down the road of a new decade.

May we be healthy in body and mind.  

May we grow intellectually and spiritually. 

And may we keep on trying, in every way, to be the cheerful giver that God loves (2 Cor. 9.7).
