On Saturday 19 May was First Communion day in Hollywood and what a wonderful celebration it was. The sun came out for the 25 boys and girls involved, together with their parents, grandparents and families. A wonderful occasion too for the children's teachers in Scoil Chaoimhín Naofa and for Father Prendiville our local padre now for over 20 years. Brian Kehoe provided flawless music on the church's classical organ. Prayers were said and hymns were sung out in English and in Irish and the 13 girls and 12 boys declared 'This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine.'

Bhí an Chéad Chomaineach ann Dé Sathairn seo caite, 19 Bealtaine, i gCillín Chaoimhín. Ceiliúradh iontach a bhí ann do na 13 cailíní agus na 12 buachaillí agus dá gcuid tuistí, seantuistí agus clann. Bhí an ghrian ag taitneamh ar feadh an lae agus ba iontach an radharc é na páistí agus a gcomhluadar bailithe le chéile sa séipéal ar dtús agus i ngairdín Theach an tSagairt i ndiaidh an tsearmanais. Cé go raibh an chuid is mó den Aifreann i mBéarla bhí paidreacha agus iomainn ann i nGaeilge chomh maith. Comhghairdeas le gach duine a bhí páirteach ann agus go gcumhdaí Dia na páistí seo sna blianta amach rompu.

Some of the art that the communion class created. Can you see the child's silhouette in the picture?
