From the Rector

Dear Parishioners,
Parish Census
2016 will be a memorable year for Ireland. It is a year of taking stock; this will
be especially true of April 24th when we all have to complete a National Census
Form. In light of this I have decided (after consultation with the Select Vestry) to
conduct our own Parish Census. A copy is enclosed and I would encourage you
to take the time to consult this.
Holy Week and Easter
I am delighted to say that the neighbouring parishes will once again link up for
services in Holy Week. This year we are having a slightly different format to our
services with guest speakers on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
Full details may be found on page 16.
Easter General Vestry
The Easter General Vestry is the A.G.M. of the parish when we elect
Churchwardens, Glebewardens (Property stewards) and a Select Vestry (the
Governing Board). It is an important event in the life of the parish and you are
warmly welcomed to be there. More information may be found on page 4.
As we approach Easter, I hope and pray the joy of that day may deeply move our
hearts and souls and fashion our lives and homes.
With every good wish,

RECTORS SURGERY - Every Tuesday 7-8 pm, Holy Trinity Rectory

Some People are Like Potatoes...

Some people never seem motivated to participate, but are just content to watch while
others do the work. They are called "Speck Tators."
Some people never do anything to help, but are gifted at finding fault with the way others do
the work. They are called "Comment Tators."
Some people are always looking to cause problems by asking others to agree with them. It
is too hot or too cold, too sour or too sweet. They are called "Agie Tators."
Some people can pretend to be someone they are not. They are called "Emma Tators."
Then there are those who love and do what they say they will. They are always prepared to
stop whatever they are doing and lend a helping hand. They bring real sun-shine into the
lives of others. They are called "Sweet Tators."

Pack your Bags to California

Holiday time, YES!! Florida here I come. Bags packed, passport and boarding card
in bag, I was on my way. I arrived in Orlando, Florida to blue skies and hot
temperatures. I was staying in Sarasota which is south of Tampa on Floridas Gulf
Coast. My days were packed with amazing activities, first a boat ride along the
waterways where we saw
pods of dolphins swimming
calmly near us and pelicans
diving into the water to catch
fish. The beaches had pristine
white sandy shores where the
sand stays cool even in hot
temperatures, so perfect for
sunbathing. The sea was
warm, with plenty of fish
swimming around our feet and Pelicans diving and swimming beside us. The
sunsets over the sea were amazing. The Myakka River is a must to visit, I took
the air-boat tour of the lake, and saw alligators near the shore and some sunning
themselves
on
land. There were
many migratory
birds, great blue
herons,
white
egrets, ibis, wood
cranes,
and
ospreys. After a
trip was organised through the wooded park along the nature trails. There was
so much more to donext time.

Food Corner

Food and Nutrition is a subject of the moment. With healthy eating a hot topic,
cut down on sugar , eat the correct fats , dont overeat , take plenty of exercise
and so it goes on and on! My view is eat a well-balanced diet and ENJOY.
I have always loved cooking , I find it most relaxing especially when sharing a
home cooked meal and a glass of wine with
family and friends.
David and I love travelling and we are always
inspired with the food in the different countries.
We were in Portugal earlier this year staying in
a non-touristy fishing town where the famous
market was filled with all sorts of fresh fish and
vegetables every day . We were inspired by the
Fish Mongers who advised and prepared the
magnificent selection of fish, which included
Squid, Sea bass, Prawns, Snapper, Sole, Sea
bream, fresh Tuna and many more varieties
that we do not see here in Ireland, hard to
choose but all glistening at us waiting to be
bought . Here is a recipe for a light lunch using
any of these fish.
A portion of fish for 2, we particularly liked snapper (pictured above), prepared
and cut into long thin slices, olive oil, fresh garlic, fresh herbs.
Heat the oil and fry the fish lightly 2 minutes each side, add the garlic then the
herbs, plate up immediately. Using the juices add 2 chopped fresh tomatoes,
chopped fresh brazil nuts, fresh herbs, stir and serve with the fish, delicious.
