Walk While You Can


#1

Dunno if anyone was listening to Ryan Tubridy this morning but Fr Tony Coote was on. Tony is PP in Kilmacud-Mt Merrion and was once the main man in the Mun. You couldn’t meet a nicer bloke. Very shocked to hear he has been struck down by MND but true to form Tony turns it into a positive. Worth a listen back to RTE player and also have a look at the link and support if you can please. Cheers!

Never heard of him!


#3

Surprised to hear that. Ask around - Tony was very popular there.


#4

I’m sure he was. Not doubting you old bean! What church was he in, do you know? I got to know a lot of priests when asking them to do announcements etc at mass, but genuinely never heard of this lad. What era was he up here?


#5

[whisper] Rochey was banned from the churches in the Mun when he caught robbing the copper off the roof. He was only allowed in the wooden church in the Nevin. [/whisper]


#6

Ha! Deadly, ya mad yoke!


#7

I’d guess 12 years? Think he helped run the soccer teams in the Comp too.


#8

Not my cuppa tea so! I’m sure others have heard and dealt with him, just not me dude!


#9

Rochey won’t even talk to the lads from Setanta never mind the soccer yobos!


#10

Some of my best friends are

etc etc…

This walk is well under way now. Delighted to see Whelo helping out and I know Cian O’Sullivan is a big fan of Fr Tony.

If you can throw the cause a few bob please do.

Met Tony once, I know his brother Pat fairly well . He was a Neighbour of ours a few years ago before he fled to ballinteer.

Managed to do a leg down Limerick way and delighted to raise almost €1,800. Can’t bate the Irish for their generosity to charity and good causes! :+1:
