Tara Dalton daughter of the Revd Kevin Dalton will be on The Ray Darcy Show today
RTE radio 1 at approximately 3.15
To tell her husband & Best friend Des' story. Hope you can tune in & thank you to you all for your continued support. 👣
Dear Facebook friends – I hope you can support this worthy cause – this year my VHI Womans virtual mini-marathon is in aid of Des:

Who is Des you may ask, well Des is husband & best friend to Tara Dalton, loving father to Daniel and Ella Rose and son-in-law of the Reverend Kevin Dalton – a previous rector of Monkstown Parish Church and Drumcondra remembered by so many in this area with great fondness.

On the 8th January this year Des, whilst on his electric bicycle in a cycle lane in Dublin city, came off and hit his head on a cycle lane bollard, his helmet didn’t even save him. Des’ life was thrown into darkness, his own lockdown. In a coma in Beaumont Hospital, Des then had lifesaving surgery where half his skull was removed.

Now lying in the National Rehabilitation Hospital, Des is making slow progress, communicating with his eyes and inaudible whispers. Tara sees her Des, sees how much his body and mind want to get back. To you and me Covid has disrupted our lives but can you imagine how it feels when every time there are restrictions put in place Tara finds herself and the kids unable to visit Des, this results in him regressing each time.

Tara, her son Daniel, and her daughter Ella Rose want Des home and so do we as their friends, this comes at a cost and we have set up a Gofundme page #walkdeshome to start raising those vital funds.

This year I have chosen to do my annual VHI Virtual Ladies Mimi Marathon for #walkdeshome. I have known Tara Dalton and her sister Sally-Ann Dalton since my childhood through Monkstown Parish Church and our friendships are as solid today as they were when we were children. Please support me on this fundraising mission, Des’ situation could be any of us and only when a tragic accident happens do you realise the fight you have on your hands. Des needs to be home amongst his loved ones as he works tirelessly to come back to us. Tara knows that the Covid restrictions are hampering Des’ chances, lack of visual contact and the touch of his family, as we ourselves can now relate to, don’t do anything to keep him fighting.

Please go to the Gofundme.com page #walkdeshome
and watch his video & if you are in a position to make a donation thank you, you really will be making a difference.
Sincere thanks,
Shirley Thornton
Rectors Church Warden MPC.

The Church of St John the Baptist, Drumcondra and North Strand Church serve the Church of Ireland (Anglican) community in the Drumcondra, Marino, East Wall, Ballybough area of North Dublin.

We are a registered charity: Registered Charity Number 20001964 The parish consists of three constituent parts, which once functioned separately. Today, with two churches, it is administered as a single unit having one select vestry. Drumcondra (Clonturk) was an appendage of the Priory of All Saints (All Hallows), founded in the twelfth century by Diarmait Mac Murchada, King of Leinster. After the dissolution of the monasteries the Corporation of Dublin became proprietor of Clonturk and was responsible for the church’s maintenance until Disestablishment. The present church of St John the Baptist was rebuilt in 1743 at the expense of Miss Mary Coghill of Drumcondra House. Drumcondra churchyard has some interesting associations. Interred here are James Gandon, architect of the Custom House, Four Courts, etc; Patrick Heeney, who composed the melody for ‘A Soldier’s Song’, now our National Anthem; members of the Jameson whiskey-distilling family; and many other notable citizens. North Strand had its origins in the North Strand Sunday and Daily School, established in 1786 by benevolent individuals keen to improve the prospects of the children in what was then a very poor neighbourhood. The present church dates from 1838. In 1896 the Union of Drumcondra and North Strand was formed. St Barnabas’ Church was built in 1870 on the North Lotts to serve the workers connected with the developing port of Dublin at North Wall. The cost was defrayed by the trustees of the estate of Miss Jane Shannon, under whose will a number of churches were built. The author and playwright Seán O’Casey was a parishioner. In 1956 it was separated from St Thomas’s and joined to Drumcondra and North Strand to form the present parish. St Barnabas’ Church was thereupon closed and subsequently demolished. Compiled by Brian Freeman as part of a Church of Ireland project to collate 300 word potted histories of all parishes in Ireland!

Margaret’s reflection is based on Psalm 86: 1–7.

Join us every day during Lent for a thought for the day from our Diocesan Readers. Archbishop Michael Jackson will give the reflections on Sundays in Lent.

Psalm 86

Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me,
for I am poor and needy.
Preserve my life, for I am devoted to you;
save your servant who trusts in you.
You are my God; be gracious to me, O Lord,
for to you do I cry all day long.
Gladden the soul of your servant,
for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving,
abounding in steadfast love to all who call on you.
Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;
listen to my cry of supplication.
In the day of my trouble I call on you,
for you will answer me.

Shona Rusk, Diocesan Reader from Crumlin and Chapelizod, provides today's short reflection for Lent (Thursday February 18). Shona's reflection is based on the Gospel reading: Luke 9:22-25.

Join us every day during Lent for a thought for the day from our Diocesan Readers. Archbishop Michael Jackson will give the reflections on Sundays in Lent.

Luke 9: 22-25
22 “The Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.”
23 Then he said to them all, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. 24 For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will save it. 25 What does it profit them if they gain the whole world, but lose or forfeit themselves?
