Saying goodbye is never easy and especially when you have been a school chaplain in an amazing school for seven years in Colaiste Pobail Bheanntrai (Bantry Community College). I will be finishing up as school chaplain at the end of the summer and starting some new appointment in September. The main part of my message is to simply say THANK YOU to everyone who has been a part of my journey in Bantry. What a journey it has been and I am truly blessed to carry with me so many happy memories and blessings.
I have put together a short video message and here is the link Many thanks

Did you know….

The adult human body has 206 bones. An infant may have from 300-350 bones at birth. Some of these will fuse together as the child grows and so with years the number of overall bones will drop to 206. Of these 206 bones more than half (103) are in the hands and feet. The longest bone in your body is the femur (thigh bone) and is a quarter of your height.

The smallest is in the ear called the stirrup. Humans and giraffes have the same number of bones in their necks. It has been said that all our bones could be narrowed down to three to get us through life. We need a wishbone to dream with, a backbone for the courage to get through the hard times and a funny bone to laugh at life along the way!
