On Monday 14th December we had the very successful launch of “The Story of Newmarket on Fergus” by Canon Reuben Butler and Máire Ní Ghruaigáin. Both of them were genuinely overcome with the warm and joyful reception they received. It was an evening to be savoured and enjoyed as a parish community gathered to celebrate its rich heritage and proud history. We are eternally grateful to them for bringing all of this rich history to our attention at this time and for the energy, patience and love they poured into the years of research. Canon Reuben and Máire are two parochial treasures and we can assure them that what they have given us as a legacy will be passed on to future generations with the same generosity in which it has been given to us.
