Breda McInerney


Breda McInerney, who died suddenly on 18 August 2011, was chairperson of our Pastoral Council. If anybody is interested in becoming involved in the Council, please contact Fr. Gerry at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  or on 086 8220956.

Breda, also known as Patricia, was heavily involved in many different aspects of parish life. As well as being chair of our Council, Breda coordinated our Eucharistic Ministers, collected the weekly Family Offering door-to-door, helped with the counting, and kept the notice boards in the Church continually up-to-date. She was involved in the bereavement group, organised the Parish Outings, arranged the annual Christmas party, represented the parish in meetings with our sister parishes in Mount Argus and Rathmines, and regularly provided tea and baked goods for any parish gathering. She also prepared the newsletter every week, and helped update this website. Her dedication to her home parish was whole-hearted. She will be sadly and sorely missed.

Breda was also on the Board of CROSSCARE, the diocesan agency, worked with the scouting movement and was involved in many other good works in the archdiocese. We extend our sympathy to her brother, nephews, nieces, cousins and her lifelong friend Maura. She will be sadly missed.

May she rest in peace, Amen.

How Far the Horizon
You want to travel?
You want to set foot on new lands, and walk along the world’s edge?
You want to live and to satisfy your thirst for more abundant life,
To fling wide the gates of your mind and be enriched by wisdom.
Travel where you wish to go, scale all the mountains and cross every ocean.
Remember this only:
The miles are ahead of you
The obstacles are within you.
Life is a voyage. Some people sit and watch, heedless of the heart’s urge and the spirit’s deepest need to launch out. Others drift here and there on the waves. They have chosen the safety of the shallows and turned their back on the promise of the deep. A sturdy few hammer their own craft together, cast off from the land and go. These know how to reach out and receive the gift of life.
