Easter Celebrated at Dawn on Easter Day in many parts of Cork, Cloyne and Ross

Many parishes had the traditional early start around the United Dioceses of Cork, Cloyne and Ross on Easter day, as parishioners and their friends, in some places together with Christians from other churches, gathered for the dawn celebration of the resurrection.  As the sunlight emerged from the darkness of light the traditional Easter proclamation rang out:  ‘Christ is risen!’

One such Service was in Templebreedy Group of Parishes, based in Crosshaven, where the Rector, the Reverend Isobel Jackson, and parishioners celebrated their first Eucharist of Easter at dawn on Fountainstown beach, County Cork.
