The MRA Committee and community enjoyed a great day with the monks even though the weather was against us ! Chairperson of MRA Tom Daly had a great chat with Bishop Donal Murray about the progression of the community and how far it has come with the help of everybody coming together, An extended special thanks to Donal for the memorable blessing he gave our beautiful garden here in Moyross.
A special thanks to The Sun newspaper and nick rabbits of The Leader for their coverage of the event it ment alot and also to Brendy Daly for really helping us sort out the issues with the manholes in the sores and always keeping our garden prim and proper to the highest standard, Lastly our fellow members of the MRA which include Deirdre, Dave , and Angela for all their hard work the past 10 years.. Thank you!
However the Moyross Residence Alliance were very dissapointed that the Moyross Community Centre didn't lend a helping hand in the upkeep of the area for this event even though it was promised, Again we pulled it out of the bag and managed on our own like we always have been used to.
All in all it was a fantastic day and fair play to the Monks of Moyross for working with the community of Moyross, and being so involved the past 10 years especially for creating the opportunity for the kids to enjoy a great summer camp 10 summers in a row long may it last!
On the 2nd of September we will be having a small get-together in the garden to welcome brother Sean and Fr. Paulous back to our lovely home for an overdue visit we look forward to seeing you all there!

The chairperson of the MRA , Tom Daly would like to thank the following people for the upkeep, effort and loyalty to our garden of rememberance here in Moyross , Jason Hamilton , Fr. Paulos , Br. Sean , Cathal McCarthy, Angela & Dave McNamara, Deirdre Murphy and the rest of his supportive family who were behind this project from day one! A special thanks to Jamie Daly who has given the community some remarkable events to reminisce on over the years (Stars in the Hood , The Limerick Toyshow, Monks vs. guards) !
Here we are 10 years on and still our garden is a credit to us all and gives us a little bit of joy each day when we visit this all started from the rough plan pictured a few years back which was drawn up by Tom Daly.
I'd also like to thank Lisa Daly for the artwork done in the garden over the years especially for our handprint murial on the wall of the garden which includes all the kids in the communities handprints this holds a special place in our hearts to have them involved.
And last but not least Rest in Peace to our local lads that tragically lost their lives, We hope that their families find peace in our garden and feel safe and at home these boys will never be forgotten.
We also would like to extend an invite to the residence to attend a gathering for the fransiscan friars on Friday the 18th of august as they will be celebrating 10 years here, All are welcome!
Thanks to everyone that made it happen , lent a hand , and donated were forever grateful!
