The Rector writes ‘Welcome to our United Service in St Mary’s Carrigaline and a very special welcome to the Clergy and Choir of Kilternan Parish who have come to join us today. We are looking forward to hearing them sing and to hearing the Revd Canon David Moynan preach. I always so enjoy listening to others preach, a rare treat for me nowadays!
Today at the end of this service we will also have a short dismissal prayer when the Sunday School teachers will hand over a candle which has been lit from the Pascal Candle to both Becky and Vicky who are to be confirmed next week at our United Service at 11am in St John’s Church Monkstown. These candles represent the knowledge and love of Christ which has been encouraged by the teaching they have received here in our church community and who better to represent us all than the Sunday School teachers.’

Random Notes CXXXV
Included in the present Carrigaline Union of Parishes are the extant Churches of St. John’s, Monkstown; St. Mary’s, Carrigaline; the closed and now ruinous Church of Ballinaboy, and the closed Christ Church, Killanully, to which latter Church, now a house and photographic studio, the following notes, taken from the pages of the United Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross Diocesan Magazine pertain. The compiler of the notes, presumably the Rector, the Revd. Canon. L.J.W.Colthurst was clearly a keen user of the phrase ‘We are most grateful’!
April, 1964 ‘At a recent Service in Killanully Church, the Lord Bishop dedicated the following gifts: Linen, for the Holy Table, presented by the family, in loving memory of Esther Jane Wolfe; a ciborium, presented by his family, in loving memory of William Hosford; a Hymn Book and a Prayer Book for the prayer desk, presented by his wife, in loving memory of William E. White; a Service Book for the Holy Table, presented by their family, in loving memory of John and Helena White. We are most grateful for these very acceptable gifts, and also particularly grateful to the Wolfe family for the gift of £50 to be invested for the benefit of Killanully Parish. The gift is to perpetuate the memory of their parents, Richard and Esther Wolfe’
June, 1965 ‘We look forward to the Centenary Service at Killanully Church on 20th June, at 3.30p.m. The preacher will be the Dean of Cork. The church is now looking at its best, having been completely redecorated and minor repair jobs carried out.’
July, 1965 ‘We are most grateful to Miss Love, of Dublin, who on reading, in the parish magazine, that Killanully Church was celebrating its centenary, has written, saying that she wishes to mark the occasion by buying a gift in memory of her grand-mother, father and uncle, who worshipped in, and loved the Church there’
August, 1965 ‘We are most grateful to the Dean of Cork for an extremely interesting sermon at our centenary service in Killanully. Our thanks also to Mr. & Mrs. Bogan, who opened their house to us, and to those who helped to provide an excellent tea. Nor would we forget those who worked inside and outside the Church to have everything looking its best’
