Funeral of Cyril Galbraith 6th December 2021

The funeral of Ireland’s oldest bell-ringer Cyril Galbraith (97) took place on Monday 6th December. Cyril had been ringing church bells since he was 15, latterly at Taney. After almost 30 years ringing the bells at St Mary’s Cathedral (from 1939) in his native Limerick, his job saw him transferred to Dublin in 1968. He continued bell-ringing at St. Patrick’s Cathedral before taking up the role at Taney. Archbishop Michael Jackson gave the address at Cyril's funeral which may accessed by clicking here.

Family Gift Service - Sunday 12th December
At the time of writing it is our intention to hold a Family Gift Service on Sunday 12th December in Christ Church, Taney.  We are again planning to give help to the homeless and those sleeping ‘rough’ on the streets of our city this Christmas.  To this end we are asking parishioners and the school children to donate gifts of woollen hats, scarves, gloves, socks and warm thermal underwear (for both men and women).  These items should be NEW.  We would ask you to bring these gifts (unwrapped) to the Churches over the coming Sundays.
