FR Anthony that came up with idea of Stations cross every Tuesday evening during Lent start at 7pm then you have Confessions at 7:45pm followed by few more prayers to end day – We had 27 people here this evening I was 2nd youngest and nice see few out from Schull also to join us everyone welcomed let’s hope for few more next Tuesday… Nearly 12:30am on what’s beautiful calm still night outside temp at 2.5c after what was fab day here bit overcast but nice and dry that’s what we need…

Loved the look about the church this evening as we made our way up for prayers with lights on inside I just knew we would not stay inside this evening we pray again another time…

Stained Glass windows on Southside must say its real gift be able do something like this and its lovely see them while lights on inside church…

South side church and 4 stained glass windows here this where Crookhaven people come pray and that’s way it’s ever been well for most them anyway..

Just left picture is path that led you to this side church if you walked from Crookhaven sure long ago people walked everywhere and you be glad sit down at first chance you got and that’s how tradition began – We regular walk this path it’s still in good order and community workers keep place nice and tidy…

North side church and you can see 4 of 5 stained glass windows from here on this side…

While stations cross were going on all I could think of was be out here picturing place and was very happy when priest said they would be confessions heard also we jumped out and got to work can go confessions next Tuesday…

That’s it all of 9 stained glass windows just thought of it think there is 3 more windows behind altar must check them out another time….

Stations of cross were just over and it been such fine evening had get out and take few pictures of place…

All done just in time as people begin leave church after evenings prayers and next Tuesday evening we stay in church for all prayers and confessions also it’s been years since I confessed any sins to Almighty God so we looking forward to doing that…

Getting very tired now so that’s all its bye for now and goodnight from here

  1. What a great idea to turn Liam’s posts into Liam’s Tales. I’ve been a fan since he started and always look forward to his posts. He’s a wealth of information and history. It’s terrific to see his life in Goleen been shared with us.
