Goodbye to Ballygall -Brendan Quinlan

Leaving the people of Ballygall parish was never going to be easy. This kind of separation runs deeper than the ink on the letter of appointment. There is a break that I feel deep within myself. Earlier this year I asked on a number of occasions to be left here. My request was made to those who have authority and who exercise influence in the diocese, to leave me in this parish until I reach retiring age; six years from now.  I was refused politely. That’s the trouble about making a promise of obedience to your bishop and his successors on ordination day – some forty-four years ago. It always raises its head when you are asked to move to another parish. Saying no is not on the agenda.


Volunteer wanted to engage in conversational Irish with nursing home residents.  A commitment to one hour a fortnight to engage with residents who are keen to recall the Irish they were taught or learn new Irish phrases.  Could be on a one to one or in a group setting.

A huge thanks to everybody who helped prepare for the Parish Jubilee.  See some photos here.   The celebration of the 50th Jubilee of our parish was a wonderful occasion. Like all great occasions a huge amount of work went on behind the scenes in planning and preparation. In the true spirit of community and teamwork TEAM BALLYGALL worked together to ensure that our church looked its best on our special day, and to ensure that our day would be a resounding success. 

The Ballygall Branch of Order of Malta played a significant role in our Jubilee.  The young people helped with bringing wheelchair patients from our Nursing Homes, to the church for our Mass. During the Mass they were attentive to the needs of our congregation, particularly the older guests who attended from the nursing homes.  For the arrival of Archbishop Martin, they formed a guard of honour, escorting the Archbishop and standing to attention for his Grace to inspect.  Photos here

Some behind the scenes photos here.  

Here are some photos from the Jubilee Mass.  With the kind help of Breeda Ryan here are some views from the gallery.  View a gallery of photos from the Jubilee Party here
