Jimmy Crowley in Concert

Note: Concert Canceled Due to Fire Damage in the Church

The Pulpit Sessions at Unitarian Church Cork proudly present in concert Jimmy Crowley & Eve Telford. Jimmy Crowley is ” pure Cork boy” with a career stretching 50 years to say his is iconic is an understatement. With a sharp and keen sense of what makes Cork tick Jimmy brings our city and its culture to life in song. Eve Telford is an Australian singer/songwriter who brings to life both nature and mythology.
It is fitting that a Cork icon plays Corks oldest church and we expect the rafters to be rocking. Jimmy Crowley & Eve Telford for one night only on the 1st of February 2024 at 8pm; can you think of a better way to celebrate St Brigid’s day.

This morning we took delivery of 4 new benches for our church courtyard. These were made by the team at Churchfield Community Trust and we extend our thanks to them. The benches are part of our continuing plans to open our courtyard to the public as a place to sit a while and pause, to enjoy lunch or just a takeaway coffee.

Oh, those All Blacks!

Sam Cane consoles Bundee Aki

As I write New Zealand are preparing to play Argentina in the Semi Final of the Rugby World Cup, the All Blacks are hot favourites and although not by any means a rugby expert, even I find it hard to imagine them losing but then as I and you both know, life if nothing if not full of surprises! As the tournament winds down to a close many here will look back with a sense of what could have been, had we beaten the All Blacks, there is little doubt that at least a place in the final would have been ours. 

In some ways the fact we lost that game by the narrowest of margins and a roll of the dice really doesn’t offer much consolation to both team and fans who felt this could be our year. As New Zealand, Argentina, South Africa and England prepare to slug it out for rugby’s most coveted prize Andy Farrell and his men begin the process of licking their wounds and going again. It is a story familiar to all of us. They say art imitates life; well, so does sport.

 We’ve all felt, and will again the pain of defeat, the pang of regret and the yearning for what might have been. Who hasn’t had that feeling? Who has not regretted a split second decision, a rash choice?

Life is full of regrets, of missed opportunities, of plans that didn’t work out, of “ what ifs”. That they happen is inevitable, that they define us, that they weigh us down along the journey; is not. That’s why we are already looking forward to the next rugby world cup!
