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)
Great site, Sean. Much improved over my initial effort....!

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!”

As COVID-19 sweeps across our nation, and particularly New York City, we should remember that as a community we have weathered such crises before and come back strong. The example of James Duane should inspire us in these trying times. #IrishAmericanHeritageMonth #EmbraceYourIrishHeritageAOH

Faith in Isolation

Today’s film comes from The Oratory of S Philip Neri in London (Brompton Oratory) with preaching from Fr George Bowen.

‘One of the scribes came up to Jesus and put a question to him, ‘Which is the first of all the commandments?’ Jesus replied, ‘This is the first: Listen, Israel, the Lord our God is the one Lord, and you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: You must love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.’

Faith in Isolation

Faith in Isolation is a platform created to spiritually nourish those isolated from their faith practices as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

These are anxious times, but we as a people we have lived through many anxious times an have always come back stronger. When times get tough we take care of family friends and community. That’s the definition of being Irish. If we embrace the we will get through this.

This Day in Irish History

This day 389 years ago - 17 March 1631 - St Patrick's Day was first recognised as a liturgical feast day.

This was largely due to Luke Wadding, a Franciscan friar from Waterford who had co-founded the Irish College in Rome, at a time when such seminaries were banned in Ireland.

#PPSellsBabyParts: “In one such testimony, Forrest Smith, an obstetrician-gynecologist who performed abortions in California, testified not only that Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics were selling aborted baby parts for profit, but babies were often born alive, then murdered, in order to ensure the organs to be sold were more fresh and intact."

We need 60 people who care about their Irish American Heritage to put our petition to Amazon over 2,000. This goes beyond a joke or simply bad taste that deserves no more than an eye-roll. There is no benign interpretation for a (per Amazon's description) "Anti St Patrick’s Day shirt for guys and gals “F*ck St. Patrick’s Day.” There is no way such an item would be tolerated if it targeted another ethnicity. It is not a free speech issue when Amazon has previously removed items that other groups found offensive

We often talk about pride in our Heritage, lets show it. We ask not to be treated better than anyone else. but we should not accept being treated worse.

The Irish Brigade played a major part in the victory on the bloodiest day in American history, the victory that let Lincoln issue the Emancipation Proclamation. When later President Lincoln visited General McClellan’s Union camp, he lifted a corner of the Irish Brigade Flag, kissed it and said: "Thank God for the Irish!"

When it was proposed that a monument be erected to Irish American Margaret Haughery, one of the first statues celebrating a woman in America, a statement was made that "no large sums would be accepted". This was so everyone in the community could say they contributed to this beloved woman's memorial. The statue is engraved with only one word "Margaret", no more needed to be said of a woman known as "The Angel of New Orleans"
