Easter 2024; God and Mammon

I was in Ballincollig for my Easter break.

The sun shone for a short few hours while we were walking in the beautiful Regional Park.

The family had mixed fortunes in the Rushbrooke Easter tennis tournament.

Anne and her partner, Martina, won their competition.

It was great to get to support them. The final on Monday was played in glorious sunshine, in contrast to the earlier rounds which they played in torrential rain.
