St Patrick’s Day is coming up on
March 17 and thoughts of everything
green come to mind.
The day is recognised as a cultural
and religious tribute to Ireland, and its
most famous patron saint, St Patrick.
He worked as a missionary in Ireland,
which must have inspired Riverton
local, Emma McInerney, who has
travelled to Kenya to help develop a
rural development program.
To raise funds to assist Emma’s
program, the Riverton/Manoora
Catholic Parish is holding a St Pat-
rick’s dinner on this Saturday, March
16. Emma is living on the coast of
Kenya in Malindi.
She works at the Catholic par-
ish there, as part of the Livelihoods
Project, which is run and funded by
Caritas, a Catholic aid agency.
The project is run to provide
skills and knowledge on improved
agricultural techniques, and cropping
alternatives, in an area which is semi-
arid and drought prone.
Emma spent a year there from
July 2011, and then headed back in
November 2012 for another 18 month
contract. Profits from the St Pat’s
dinner will also support the work of
a community group formed in Clare
to address the high suicide rate in the
Mid North. Contact Tony on 8847

gras, which was probably not the place to
find the type of “female” suitable for him.
Although he did like the costumes, apparently!
This is the ONLY tale we will tell about
the Sydney trip. We won’t dare go
near what happened on the plane,
other than suggesting some of the
group stay away from pretzels.
The other celebrated a milestone birthday
at a hotel over the long weekend, and after cel-
