Fish­er­men’s Mass in Youghal

Irish Examiner - County - - Front page - Christy Parker

Youghal’s an­nual fish­er­men’s Mass, held to re­mem­ber de­ceased sailors and fish­er­men from the re­gion, and espe­cially those who lost their lives at sea, will be cel­e­brated in the town’s parish church at 10am next Satur­day.

Mem­bers of the Ir­ish Navy, the RNLI and Coast­guards, will join fam­i­lies of de­parted ones from across the Black­wa­ter Val­ley.

Mu­si­cal and singing ac­com­pa­ni­ment will be led by Red­mond Ans­bro, while a range of newly-dis­cov­ered mar­itime pho­to­graphs will be on dis­play in the church porch, cour­tesy of Andy Kelly from Kil­mac- thomas in west Water­ford.

Cork City priest Fr Bernard Cot­ter is due to par­tic­i­pate in the cel­e­bra­tion, rep­re­sent­ing the last liv­ing fam­ily con­nec­tion with the ‘Nel­lie Flem­ing’ schooner.

The ship sank off Ard­more bay in 1913 with the loss of five lives, in­clud­ing the priest’s grand-un­cle.
