With Sympathy to the Casey Family

We extend our condolences to Theresa Casey and family (USA) on the loss of Theresa’s brother Ned. 

Originally from Ballylongford, Ned lived in New York for decades where he and his wife Mary had the most welcoming of homes. 

Ned was a great friend and mentor to many young people who emigrated from Kerry helping them to get jobs and find places to live.

A gentleman in the truest sense of the word.  Rest in Peace.  Our thoughts are with his family and all of the Caseys at this time.

Today is World Wildlife Day

Today, March 3rd is International World Wildlife Day and it’s a good time of year to contemplate all of the living creatures that we co-exist with in Brosna. 

As humans we can at times believe the world is ours to do with as we please. But really we are merely caretakers, passing through this world. 

It’s a good practice to look at how we interact with our natural world and think about what sort of parish we are handing on to the next generations. 

Let’s be respectful in our life choices and make decisions that support all of nature.
