The Rev Father O’Neill, a beloved priest from New Zealand, is set to receive a warm welcome as he returns to his birthplace in Limerick. The pacishioners of St John’s will present him with an illuminated address in recognition of his dedication and commitment to the Church. Having spent several years abroad serving his community, Father O’Neill’s visit to his hometown has been a long-awaited event, and everyone is eager to show their appreciation for his work. As a symbol of their gratitude, he will also receive a set of beautiful vestments that were crafted by the talented nuns at the Magdaleu Convent. The people of Limerick are proud of their native son, and this gesture is a testament to their admiration and respect.
