Last Sunday 22nd September, in the Church of Saint Lappan, Little Island, County Cork a memorial to Betty Haynes was dedicated during the Sunday Eucharist.
Betty was a much loved member of the parish community who dedicated much of her life to the well being and benefit of the parish. Her husband Bobby is the sexton at Saint Lappan’s.
Having dedicated the memorial, the Reverend Paul Arbuthnot, Rector of Cobh and Glanmire Union of Parishes commented:
This is a fitting tribute to Betty who was, and is still much loved by the parish community. In this memorial, we are reminded that she is very much a part of the cloud of witnesses who have gone before us, and who surround us on our earthly pilgrimage. We are indebted to those members of the Select Vestry who brought this memorial to fruition. We also remember with deep gratitude and affection the late Reverend Adrian Moran who did so much to make this happen.
