Popular trio say farewell to St Fergal’s
AN EMOTIONAL farewell party was held last Saturday night as Sr. Catherine Hyland, Fr. Pat Power and Fr. Joe Murray left St. Fergal’s Parish.
Over 260 parishioners filled Ardmore Studios to say goodbye and to celebrate the work done at St. Fergals by the three.
Fr. Power who has been with St. Fergals for 22 years will be mov- ing to Brussels to an English speaking parish there.
Sr. Catherine who has been at St. Fergals for 15 years will be moving to London and Fr. Murray who has been with the parish for just four years is retiring at the age of 75 after an illness.
At the farewell party Parish Priest of St. Fergals, Fr. John O’Brien presented each of them with a gift. He presented Sr. Catherine with a gold broach that was engraved with the banner of St. Fergals.
Fr. Power was presented with a painting by local artist Peter Growney of St. Fergals Church and Fr. Murray received vouchers.
All three will be greatly missed throughout the community.
