Welcome to our Guests from Sweden!
We will be having a special Retiring Collection today for Carrigaline Community First Response, a group of trained volunteers who assist with cardiac or respiratory arrest and choking emergency calls within our community, providing basic emergency care whilst an ambulance is en route to the patient within this area. The scheme doesn’t replace the professional emergency medical services but rather complements and enhances their services. All emergency calls are activated through the NAS National Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) System which automatically alerts the on-call First Responders by SMS Text Alert of a Clinical Status 1 (ECHO) 999 emergency call in their area. If a CFR (Community First Responder) is available, they will respond. This will occur concurrently with the dispatch of emergency resources and will not delay the dispatch of those resources.
Tonight St John’s Church, Monkstown at 7pm-“Songs of Praise Choral Evensong” Sponsorship money will be donated to Focus Ireland. Thank you to all who voted.

Random Notes CLXXXII
Continuing from the account given in random notes of January 17th last, herewith beneath is transcribed the second reference to the St. George and the slain dragon window, set up in c.1924 by Richard Hobart Dorman, then of Newborough, nr. Kinsale, and later of Ballea Castle, nr. Carrigaline.
‘A meeting of the Select Vestry was held at the School on Monday 28th. Jan: 1924
Present: Rev. F.G. Kennedy (chairman), Capt. Newenham, Mr. R.H. Dorman, Mrs Cantillon, Miss N. Roberts, Mr J. Stanley, Mr Young, Mr H. Roberts, Mrs Daunt.-
The meeting opened with prayer & the minutes of the preceding meeting read and signed.
Mr Dorman [1[ submitted to the vestry a design by Miss Purser  of the stained glass window which he proposes to have put in Carrigaline Church in memory of the members of his family who fell in the great war. Mr Dorman explained that the design had already met with the approval of the Bishop . Capt. Newenham proposed and Mr Young seconded a resolution that this Vestry has much pleasure in accepting the design with a very hearty vote of gratitude to Mr Dorman for adding in this way to the beauty of the Church. This was carried unanimously. The meeting then terminated’
 Richard Henry Dorman (1858-1940).
 Sarah Henrietta Purse (1948-1943), the noted portraitist, of Mespil road, Dublin
 Right Revd.Charles Benjamin Dowse (1862-1934), Bishop of Cork, Cloyne and Ross, 1912-1934.
It will be observed that as a result of the munificence of two brothers of the Dorman family, Carrigaline Church gained, with a short space of time, two significant and important donations, namely the elegant and very lovely silver chalice, presented in 1912, by the Revd. Samuel Hobart Dorman (b.1863), Rector of Knockmourne, and then, some twelve years later, the noteworthy and quite beautiful window, here mentioned, presented by his elder brother.
