Eamonn, Louise, Little Eddie, Wayne, and Thomas.
On December 19th we held our 15th annual memorial tree service. Every year we have a donation box with all the donations going to Templemore hospice.
This year a fantastic €1100.00 was very kindly donated. Louise, Eddie and I would sincerely like to thank you all for your very generous donations.
We would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy and peaceful new year
As we now reflect on our memorial tree 2020 we would like to thank sincerely all who helped make it such a memorable occasion despite the difficult circumstances we faced . We dearly missed the large attendance we are accustomed to over 14 years but delight in the knowledge that over 2,500 people joined us online . Our sincere gratitude to Fr .Conor Hayes and Canon Ian Coulter for leading us in prayer and blessing our tree , Marian Quinlan Curtain for her words that touched our hearts , to Templemore pipe band who turned out in serious numbers and full uniform and who have from the start made this such a special occasion,
Jim Maley, Aoife Kelly and Templemore choir gave us a fantastic beautiful and heartwarming performance of the most beautiful hymns associated with Christmas. To all who joined us on the livestream on our website to view our service and turned up the previous day to place cards on our tree and very kindly donate over €1000.00 to hospice . Personally I would like to sincerely thank Wayne Cummins who makes sure the tree is up and ready each year , Thomas Bourke who sets up the live stream and both Wayne and Thomas play a very big part in preparing and helping to run this event . To my wife Louise Grey who supports and listens and helps to keep our feet on the ground. Thank you
