Mass for the Repose of the Souls 

of Those Who Died in 2014


This Mass will take place on Friday 21st at 7.30 p.m. in the Church of the Holy Family, Rathcoole. The following newsletters contain the names of those who died since mid-September: 14th,   21st28th  September;  5th,  19th  October;  2nd  and 9th November.

Below is a photo taken in Rathcoole church on the evening of Tuesday, 12th June 2012, on the occasion of a lecture given by John Bradley (History Department, National University of Ireland, Maynooth) on the subject 'The Early History of the Parishes of Saggart/Rathcoole/Brittas and Newcastle'. The lecture was one of the events organised in our two parishes as part of the Eucharistic Congress of that year. I'm sure that those who heard John speak that evening will be saddened to learn of his death on Friday 7th last, at the age of 59. One of his many writings is an article on the medieval boroughs of County Dublin (1998), including Saggart, Rathcoole and Newcastle Lyons.

May all our deceased parishioners, and friends of the parishes such as John, be rewarded in heaven for all their good work on earth.
