I've just noticed that there is someone new following my blog. Welcome in Breadgirl! Breadgirl's blog is about a Welsh saint, David Lewis, who was martyred in the 17th Century. He reminds me a lot of Blessed William Tirry, an Augustinian priest who was martyred during the Penal times here in Ireland. Just being a priest was an offence punishable by death. Fr Tirry was arrested wearing his vestments, about to say Mass in Fethard, Co Tipperary (that's a picture of the lovely town- we used to live there). He is probably buried under the Augustinian Church in Fethard. The locals brought back his body after he was martyred in nearby Clonmel.
I must tell you more about him when it isn't quite so late. Like David Lewis he deserves to be better known.
