It has been a sad week for Brosna with the loss of Paddy Corridan, Ita Lane and Susie Mooney.

There’s been a lot of tragedy and sadness around our parish this past week.  

First, we remember Paddy Corridan whose

life was ended in the most tragic of circumstances. 

We think of his daughter, Mairéad and her family at this time.  The death of a loved one is never easy to navigate and especially when it’s so sudden and unexpected. 

I used to meet Paddy at a lot of the GAA games.  He was a distinctive figure with his fine head of hair.  Football was a passion for him. 

And more than that was his pride and love whenever he spoke of Mairéad and his adored granddaughter, Bríd. His life was full and well lived. It’s all we can ever really ask for.

Mrs.Ita Lane, One of Brosna’s Oldest Citizens

Mrs.Ita Lane, one of our oldest citizens, passed away this week a few days shy of her 91st birthday. 

A most popular and respected lady, who lived life with determination and curiosity.  She embarked on day’s out, trips abroad, and any and all adventures with such a positive mindset.  A beloved member of the Castleisland Daycare Centre and our local group who met at the Hall twice a month.  She was a wonderful mother and took such interest in all of her grandchildren too.  Ita was for me a shining example of the power of women who shape their own lives and live on their own terms.  She was a powerful person in the best sense of the word.  You will be celebrating your birthday in heaven, Ita, with stars to light your candles.  Happy Birthday.

The Late Susie Mooney

And not forgetting Susie Mooney, daughter of Mary and Gus. 

Gone too soon, this lovely young woman is remembered fondly by her family, neighbours and friends around Brosna. 

Our deepest sympathies to her parents and extended family. Susie, may you rest in peace.

GAA Round Up

Brosna closed out its North Kerry League campaign in a disappointing performance against Beale on Saturday. 

Slow to get on the scoreboard, Beale were 10 points clear before Brosna seemed to settle into the game.  Over the course of the game, Brosna came within three points of Beale, keeping them scoreless for a long stretch of time. 

At one point it looked like they could do something. Sadly, the goals secured by Beale late in the second half snuffed out any such hopes. 

Both teams had 11 scores apiece but of these Beale had four goals. The saying, goals win matches was never as true.  Full time:  Brosna 1-8.  Beale 4-7.
