Hi Guys, I hope you don't mind me trying to get some publicity for my new business venture but if any of you good folks are planning a trip home you might check out my website turaseireann.ie to see what we have to offer. Go raibh mile maith agat.
Brothers, this is a link shared by Will Ermini, a past local Firefighter and EMT and a good friend of O’Faolain’s and the staff. His family is in need of prayers and financial support. Please read Will’s words below and help or support if and where you can. Thank you all in advance. Dia Duit (god bless)

We are a Division of the Ancient Order of Hiberians in America, serving as a Catholic Irish Fraternal Organization for Loudoun County, Virginia

We are a Division of the Ancient Order of Hiberians in America, serving as a Catholic Irish Fraternal Organization for the Ashburn area of Loudoun County, VA. As such, we espouse the principles of Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity. Some of our events include an Annual Trip to Ireland Raffle, the proceeds of which support our charitable goals. We work with other community, fraternal, and religious organizations such as the Knights for Columbus to provide Sweats for Vets. You will see us marching in local Irish festivals and parades in Manassas, Alexandria, and Leesburg, VA. We also support Right To Life, Irish Catholic Causes, and local Irish immigration causes. We meet monthly at the Belmont Green Community Center, 43003 Chesterton St., Ashburn VA 20147. Our Division honors Col. Thomas J. Cunningham. In the words of one of our original members, the late Ned Woisard, “Thomas J. Cunningham, Jr. was a gentleman — and a gentle man. He was considerate, kind, outgoing, warm, friendly. He personified the Christian ideal — wherever he went, he sowed joy. He was a communicator! He was trained in communications; he practiced communications; toward the end, in a sense, he taught communications. Tom was born in Pittsburgh on September 19, 1918, found his way to the University of Indiana for his Bachelor’s Degree, then to American University for a Master’s Degree in Public Relations. He enlisted in the U.S. Army as a private in 1941 and, 26 years later, retired as a colonel. While in the Army, he was a communicator. In Vietnam, he was Chief of Communications for General Westmoreland, was responsible for Radio Saigon and was a major factor in introducing military and civilian television into the Republic of Vietnam. Tom was editor of ARMOR MAGAZINE and European editor of STARS AND STRIPES, the two largest circulation publications in the Armed Services. Among other awards, he received THE LEGION OF MERIT and the BRONZE STAR. Later as a civilian, Tom directed communications and magazine programs for five national organizations, including the National Defense Transportation Association, and the Retired Officers Association. Toward the end of his life, he was a Communications and Marketing Consultant to the American Road and Transportation Builders Association and the American Society of Naval Engineers. Tom was a communicator to the end. Looking at the more personal side, Tom was Vice President of the Col. Fitzgerald Division, the largest AOH Division in Virginia, and a Fourth Degree Knight of Columbus. He was also a daily communicant, an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, and an altar server (when needed). He was a true Christian, always a source of joy to those around him, always a calming influence in times of stress, always willing to pitch in and help — or take the lead if necessary. He was a most convivial spirit, good company, a friend to all. Tom was an outstanding communicator and, most of all, he communicated love! Thomas J. Cunningham entered eternal life on June 26, 1995. One of his four daughters, Barbara Lynn, predeceased him in 1953 and his wife, Marcella, died in 1997. His surviving daughters are Connie Venberg of Paradise Valley, Arizona; Sally Dina of Brentwood, Tennessee; Kathryn Starr, of Roswell, Georgia. One of his three brothers, Martin, of Annandale, Virginia, is a member of the Cardinal Cushing Division of the AOH. This description may make Tom appear to be a saint and it would not surprise me a bit if he were standing in the presence of the Lord right now! But let’s play it safe! Please keep Tom in your prayers – and also the Col. Thomas J. Cunningham, Jr. Division of the Ancient Order of Hibernians!”

St. Joan of Arc, FSSP

“Blessed be the holy Trinity and undivided Unity: we will give glory to him, because he hath shown his mercy to us!”

Today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, which Feast always occurs on the Octave (or eighth day) of Pentecost.

“And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying: All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. Going therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.”

This Day in Irish History

This day 76 years ago – 6 June 1944 - the Normandy landings, also known as D-Day, took place.

Among those who took part was Major Redmond Cunningham from Co Waterford, who led a troop of Royal Engineer tanks, and captured 200 German soldiers.

He received the Military Cross.

Sheepdog Response

Memorial Day
By Joyce Kilmer

The bugle echoes shrill and sweet,
But not of war it sings to-day.
The road is rhythmatic with the feet
Of men-at-arms who come to pray.
The roses blossom white and red
On tombs where weary soldiers lie;
Flags wave above the honored dead
And martial music cleaves the sky.
Above their wreath-strewn graves we kneel,
They kept the faith and fought the fight.
Through flying lead and crimson steel
They plunged for Freedom and the Right.
May we, their grateful children, learn
Their strengh, who lie beneath the sod,
Who went through fire and death to earn
At last the accolade of God.
In shining rank on rank arrayed
They march, the legions of the Lord;
He is their Captain unafraid,
The Prince of Peace . . . Who brought a sword.

Joyce Kilmer was killed-in-action in World War I and is best remembered for his poem "Trees."
