I got the email below from a Valentia woman in Abu Dhabi with the following message:

Please thank Fr. Brick for being a great advocate of our football heroes. May God Bless them and bring them the good fortune to win on Saturday.

We are all with them. I’m in Abu Dhabi and I will be willing them on. Wish I was at home in Valentia to follow it but God Willing they will win,” – Patricia O’Sullivan.

Common Sense Decision

The common sense decision by Castleisland PP Fr. Mossie Brick to bring this evening’s 6:15pm mass forward to 5pm, to facilitate people who wish to watch the Kerry V Dublin re-match on television, has made headlines throughout the country and maybe beyond.

Worshippers of Kerry Football

His ‘Calm Before the Storm’ mass is likely to attract worshipers of Kerry football in their droves and people who will be on their knees for the rest of the evening as ‘our boys’ take another tilt at the Dubs in Croke Park.

The throw-in in the replay is scheduled for 6pm this evening and the half hour or so of calm before this particular storm will be a welcome prelude to what will likely be another thrilling encounter between the two ‘old enemies’ and under the influence of a full moon into the bargain.

The Kerry team for today’s big game is as follows:

1 Shane Ryan. 2 Jason Foley. 3 Tadhg Morley. 4 Tom O’Sullivan. 5 Paul Murphy. 6 Gavin Crowley. 7 Brian Ó Beaglaoich. 8 David Moran. 9 Jack Barry. 10 Gavin White. 11 Seán O’Shea. 12 Stephen O’Brien. 13 David Clifford. 14 Paul Geaney. 15 Adrian Spillane.

Inspired by Fr. Brick

I also got the following link to a podcast from Today FM and one which is clearly inspired by Fr. Brick’s initiative. Have a listen with a click on the link here:
