Dear Parishioners,

I cant believe I am writing notes for November already where does time go?
There is a great buzz in the parish with the Carry Centre project making good
progress (full report on page 6); however, I am conscious that November heralds
a more reflective time in the Churchs year. As part of our liturgies I draw your
attention to the All Saints service on the 2
nd
November in which we have an
opportunity to remember those parishioners and loved ones who have passed
away. As we remember them may we give thanks for their faith, love and
example.
This edition of The Obelisk covers the month of December and all the activities
associated with Advent and Christmas. It is a special time of the year when
family and friends gather to celebrate and relax. For those travelling to Killiney
this December - they are very welcome in Holy Trinity! A full outline of
Christmas services may be found on page 5
Finally, to those for whom Christmas is not a particularly joyful time - I hope that
you may find peace in that which only the Christ child gives to all of us.
A happy and blessed Christmas to you all,


With every good wish,
From the Rector
Hospital Visiting
The Rector would appreciate being told if parishioners are in hospital or
going into hospital, and will be pleased to offer pastoral support.
A selection of prayers is available from him or in Church.

Eco Congregation Ireland
Information leaflets are available in the Church and Hall.
A term associated with gifted people whose horticultural skills are enhanced by a
feeling, an empathy, with things that are sown and grown - usually with enviable
success. I dont possess green fingers (nimble fingers might describe my key-board
skills, but this already alludes to a childrens toy-shop in a neighbouring parish). The
floral flair of the lady with whom I have the privilege of sharing two gorgeous
gardens is definitely green fingered. The results of her creativity are there for all
to see, in fragrant splendour and usual beauty. There is surely no more relaxing
pastime than sitting under a shady tree observing your nearest and dearest
lovingly tending a flower bed while kneeling and patiently weeding. When the
discarded substances grow in volume to resemble a small haystack, it is time for
the non-green fingered member of the partnership to stir. The abandoned
material is stuffed into a wheel-barrow and transported to the shredding bay (i.e.
a hidden corner of the garden) a machine gobbles it up, spews it out in little bits,
plastic buckets of it are dispatched to one of many compost heaps dotted about
the estate. Tis here that moisture, heat and ever industrious worms combine, in
the fullness of time, to produce a crumbly brown nutrient. This will be fed and
spread around the lucky perennials and the newly planed hopefuls giving nature a
leg-up, as it were, in the unending patterns of growth. When the work is done
and the busy world is hushed, what greater joy is there, than to sit side-by-side
in ones private Eden and savour the fragrances, the abundance and variety of
colour, the intermittent music of the birds aloft in the branches, and perhaps sip
the fruits of the juniper tree. I hope you are green with envy!

Harvest
Many thanks to our Choir, Music Director Frank Hughes, and the Flower Guild who
decorated our Church with artistic flair and all who enhanced our worship during this
autumn season. Our preachers were warmly received and we thank them for their
inspiring reflections! Pictured above is the Rector, churchwardens and the Revd Suzanne
Harris - the preacher on the 12th October.

The Carry Centre
Work is progressing well on the Carry Hall. The building committee meet weekly with the
Architect for site meetings and updates on the project. In early October we learned that
due to unforeseen circumstances the project has been slightly delayed with the finishing time
moved to the end of November. It is planned that the first public event in the new centre
will be the Christmas Sale on the 6th November (please see details elsewhere). The good
news is that the project remains within budget and the building committee are confident that
everybody will be very pleased with the end product. More news next month.
In the meantime the parish users will use various locations for their gatheringsplease
consult each organisation for full details. For more information visit www.carrycentre.ie

David Millar writes, Down to one day never before! Archbishop emphasises
that our faith is accounted for by others in our identifiable actions. Many live
worthwhile lives, lifting mankind beyond numerical statistics, yet God is little
mentioned though we see Him in them. Need to stand against evil with our
Musl i m f ri ends, to reach communi ty, beyond our petty
borders. Encouragement everywhere. Dun Laoghaire parishs Dining Room,
Powerscourts daily prayer, the success of Templecarrig School in Delgany, the
Dean of Christ Churchs experience of sleeping rough, new paths to time-
honoured worship. Seek not the extraordinary, but do the ordinary extremely
well.
Just jottings, but one should go on. The Church goes on.

I have worked for the Rushe family for 14 years. I am currently the Store
Manager of Super Valu in Dalkey. Having previously been the Store
Manager of our Killiney branch for 7 years. I returned to Dalkey in late
August 2013, this is my second time being the Store Manager in Dalkey; I
was in charge of the store in the early 2000s.
I can honestly say that no two days are the same in my role, everyday
throws up a new challenge. I like to consider our store as part of the
community, we have strong ties to local schools and clubs, we assist
them in any way we can when they are trying to raise funds for various
projects.
As I have stated, this is my second time working in Dalkey. It never ceases to amaze me
how strong the sense of community spirit is in Dalkey. The town always has something
going on in it and it never seems to have a shortage of people willing to help out. This is a
credit to the residents, the community seems to be very proud of their town, as they
should be, its picturesque, friendly, tidy and ardent. It is a place I enjoy working in, I always
have. There are so many excellent businesses in the town, Why go anywhere else? I am just
recently married, so when I am not working I like to spend as much time with my wife as
possible. My working days are nonstop and hectic, most of my spare time is spent with her,
there is no better way of decompressing. My other way of relaxing is done in the form of
running, I run between 20 and 30km a week. I find this both relaxes and energises me. If
only we could sort out the Irish weather, Id probably run more.

A Fishermans Tale - Peter Caviston
Paint the picture: Thursday night before the big Ireland and England game, a group of fine
Seapoint Rugby gentlemen assembled in the Graduate Bar, Killiney. Served from behind the
bar by the bold Vinnie OReilly was yours truly, a small lad known as Bottles OToole and
the other gentlemen will remain anonymous for obvious reasons? We started a round of
pints and one pint led to the next when one of the lads dared me that I would note dress up
as Molly Malone and bring the wheelbarrow, that normally resided outside my shop in
Glasthule, into the middle of Landsdowne Road just before the game commenced.
Fast forward to Saturday. I produced Molly the wheelbarrow I dressed up in the shop
apron, wore Pat OHaras Irish jersey and said goodbye to our guests in the shop.
Arriving at Landsdowne Road I relaised that I had a problem! Hiding a wheelbarrow isnt
exactly easy and there was a large Garda presence around the old stadium. Spotting an ex-
Seapoint player who was a steward at the game I managed to bluff my way into the ground.
You want to see his face when I asked him If I could roll the wheelbarrow on to the pitch at
exactly 4 minutes before the start of the game since neither 3 minutes or five minutes were
part of the bet. He said that the President of Ireland was about to come onto the pitch, I
said all the better and with the wink of an eye the wicket gate was opened and I was out of
the traps like a greyhound. While running to the centre of the pitch pushing the
wheelbarrow as fast as I could I saw the President coming onto the pitch. There was a roar
from the crowd and the President thought it was for her but I knew it was for me. I could
see a policeman running after me in hot pursuit shouting at me to stop. Putting his hand on
my arm he said I am arresting you. I said hold on a minute I have to do a pirouette first.
As I did the crowd went ballistic.
Youd never know, maybe Molly might go to the Aviva without invite!!

hope that it will be of help to many who find themselves without work for a
variety of reasons. Full details from the Rector.

Its the simple things in life for me. Going back home to our family farm in
Galway is where I find the most peace and happiness. I am very fortunate that
my elderly parents are still alive and I cherish every moment spent with them.
I love to go home, throw on the wellies and walk the farm. As John Burroughs
said, I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in
order. Going home does that very thing to me! I slow down, take in the fresh
air, beautiful Galway countryside and am thankful to God for the family and life I
have

Books
What a pleasure it is to take down a favourite book and to read it again, even
just to leaf through a page or two. The stories, the characters, the feelings
come flooding back, like when hearing a favourite piece of music again.
Over the last year Ive been opening some boxes of books which had been put
away for a while, and putting them onto new bookshelves. Needless to say its
turned out to be a long task, slowed down by the rediscovery of many long lost
friends and favourites, leading to lengthy pauses in the unpacking, and to many
rediscovered delights. Books given by family and friends, books acquired at
different stages of life and in foreign parts, books put aside for later reading,
books out of mind but joyfully remembered when unpacked from the boxes in
which they had been so carefully put away! All keys to memories and
reminders, to re-acquaintances with people, events, stories and emotions.

PS. the book stall at this years Christmas Sale will have its usual high quality
selection for your own please! Dont forget to visit us in the newly refurbished
