Nollaig Shona!

A very Merry Christmas from Teach Bhríde! We’ve celebrated in style with five Masses, some peppermint ice cream, gifts, sweet bread made by Emily, and Christmas lunch with Fr. Denis. Many thanks to all the members of the Youth Choir, the Vigil Choir, the Folk Group who sang for Christmas! (Oh, and also Annie, a guest member of all those groups for the last few days.) We’re off for our winter holidays while the schools are out, but we’ll be back in a couple weeks. Until then, here are some pictures of our Christmas celebrations!

So, “Le gach dea ghuí i gcóil na Nollaig agus na hAth bhliana!” (If you are like us, and don’t speak fluent Irish, that’s, “Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year!”) God bless!
