    Thank you Miichael. It is humbling to hear Rita speak of her response to the need she saw in the people of Railaco and it is encouraging to see how the efforts of so small a parish as St Canice have been able to help alleviate that need over a decade. We owe much to to Fr Steve, of course and to Sue and Graeme and their fidelity to the cause. You’ve done a big thing here Michael by giving us the chance to see the progress and the continuing need thereby motivating us to keep the connection and the support going. Thank you again.
