Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 19th November

The dimension of reciprocity is emphasized in the logo of the World Day of the Poor.

There is an open door, on the threshold of which are found, two people. Both extend a hand; one to ask for help, the other with the intention of providing it.

In the end, it is difficult to figure out which of the two is the true poor person. or, better, both are poor. The one who holds out his hand to enter asks for sharing; the one who holds out his hand to help is invited to go out to share.

These are two extended hands that are found wherever someone offers something. Two
hands that express solidarity and that prompt a person not to remain in the doorway, but to go to encounter the other.

The poor person can enter the house, once the person in the house has understood that help means sharing.

The words that Pope Francis wrote in his Message become all the more meaningful in this context:

“Blessed are the hands that reach beyond every barrier of culture, religion and nationality, and pour the balm of consolation over the wounds of humanity. Blessed are the open hands that ask nothing in exchange, with no “ifs” or “buts” or “maybes”: They are hands that call down God’s blessing upon their brothers and sisters” (n.5)

Exclusive: The Fureys – To Perform in Kilmovee

Legends of Irish music & song The FUREYS will perform their first concert in their 40th Anniversary year at Kilmovee Community Centre on Friday 5th January 2018.

The FUREYS have been entertaining audiences worldwide, audiences that have included former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, Former Irish President Mary McAleese and the late Pope John Paul while Tony Blair has publicly stated his favourite peace song of all time is the FUREYS “Green Fields of France”. Recently Ireland President Michael D Higgins attended their concert in Dublin’s National Concert Hall.

The band was formed in 1978 literally by accident. George, Paul and Davey were playing in Denmark with their own band called the Buskers and Eddie and Finbar, while touring in Germany were involved in a road accident. When George and Paul got news of the accident they immediately travelled to Germany to be with their brothers. They then decided that they should all be playing together and this was the start of the FUREYS.

Inevitably changes have occurred over the years. Their brother Paul died suddenly in June 2002 and Finbar left the band in December 1996, however, George and Eddie have continued to delight audiences on their tours and have just released a new CD ‘The Fureys…40 years on…to be continued’

The oldest of the brothers, Eddie Furey left home in 1966 and travelled to Scotland at the time of the great folk revival where he met and shared accommodation in Edinburgh with then unknown folk singers Billy Connolly, Gerry Rafferty and Alex Campbell, now all famous in their own right. In 1969 with his brother Finbar, he was the special guest for the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem throughout the USA and Canada. In 1971 he moved to mainland Europe where he toured for seven years, building up a huge following particularly in Germany. Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics has credited Eddie with teaching him his first chords on guitar when they met up in the North East of England while Dave was still a teenager.

The FUREYS are responsible for some of the most stirring music ever to capture the public imagination. Their folk based music has received standing ovations in some of the biggest concert halls of the world and they credit their musical ability to their parents, Ted and Nora, who were well-known musicians themselves. They encouraged their sons to play music from a very early age and there was live traditional music in their house almost nightly.

Their emotive songs stir many emotions….tears and laughter, sadness and joy.

Come along and hear their renowned hit songs ‘I will love you’, ‘When you were sweet 16’, ‘The Green fields of France’, ‘The old man’, ‘Red rose café’, ‘From Clare to here’, ‘Her father didn’t like me anyway’, ‘Leaving Nancy’, ‘Steal away’ and much more.
