A priest from Carrickbeg/Windgap Parish has published his third book, which is now available in local bookshops.
â€œThe Hand of Godâ€ by 87 year-old Fr Bernard Hahesy, a native of Scartlea, Kilsheelan, is on sale at Cleryâ€™s Newsagents, Main St., Carrick-on-Suir and Easons at Gladstone St., Clonmel.
In the book, Fr Hahesy outlines his forthright views on the Catholic Church and its teachings and a wide range of social issues.
Journalist and author John Waters has written a foreword tribute to Fr Hahesyâ€™s book that is printed on its back cover.
He describes â€œThe Hand of Godâ€ as a â€œrefreshing bookâ€ featuring â€œrich homilies replete with vivid stories and observationsâ€.
Mr Waters says Fr Hahesyâ€™s writings â€œcontain powerful and convincing indictments of the contemporary ageâ€.
Fr Hahesy, who was home recently visiting relatives living near Rathgormack and Kilmacthomas, has served as a priest in England for 62 years and lives in Plymouth where he is parish priest of St Edwardâ€™s Parish.
His other books are â€œIn Defence of Catholic Teachingâ€ and â€œChanges In The Church Since Vatican 11â€.
Anyone wishing to purchase a copy of â€œThe Hand of Godâ€ can contact Fr Hahesy at St Edwardâ€™s Catholic Church, Home Park Ave., Plymouth PL3 4PG, England.
