The wedding took place on Saturday, June 23, in Holy Trinity Church, Fethard of Kevin O’Meara, Ballydonnell. Kevin is the second son of Eddie and Josephine O’Meara. Kevin’s bride was also an O’Meara, Norah, the only daughter of Jimmy and the late Mary, Patrick’s Place, Fethard. The ceremony was performed by Fr. Tom Breen P.P. Fethard assisted by Fr. John McGrath P.P. Mullinahone. Chief bridesmaid was Norah’s friend Sandra Maher, while her other friends Jean Morrissey, Edel Fitzgerald and her niece Molly O’Meara were bridesmaids. Bestman was Kevin’s older brother Sean and his groomsmen were his brother Edwin and his friend Kyran Vaughan. Readers were Willie O’Meara (brother of the bride) and Aidan O’Meara, (brother of the groom). The Prayers of the Faithful were recited by Eimear Gahan (friend of the bride), Sharon O’Meara, (sister-in-law of the bride), Noel O’Shea (friend of the groom), Caoimhe O’Meara (niece of the bride), Connie Sullivan (uncle of the bride) and Joseph O’Meara (brother of the groom). The offertory gifts were presented by the groom’s mother Josephine and the bride’s aunt, Claire Sullivan. At the conclusion of Mass a reflection was given by James Maher (friend of the groom). Music during the ceremony was provided by Bernie and Kelly Lonergan. Norah and Kevin celebrated their marriage at a most enjoyable reception in Dundrum House with family and friends. They spent their honeymoon in Thailand and have since returned to begin their married life in Mullinahone. We wish them both many, many happy years of wedded bliss.

Last Summer a very welcome visitor to Mullinahone during the holidays was the Children’s Library Bus. It was so successful that Tipperary Libraries have decided to do it again this Summer. The bus will visit the village each Tuesday afternoon from Tuesday next, July 17. It will be parked in the church carpark from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. Small children must be accompanied by an adult. All are welcome, this year the service will be as good as ever and hopefully will be even better supported.
