Listen and See’

..opens at the Artbank Bunclody on 15th October and runs until 5th November 2021.

Ed Reynolds is a Belfast based artist, with not just a eye for what visually pleases him, but also an ear for what he hears as accompaniment to his artworks.

For his exhibition of new paintings entitled ‘ Listen and See’, Ed specifically set out to paint along the streets of Bunclody, making also a series of field recordings, right from the very spot from where his works were created.

Ed believes that by taking the time just to slow down, and to lis-ten and see what’s around us, we can fully immerse ourselves in the true experience of living in the here and now.

‘There is great joy in being out painting and listening to what goes on around the place. It makes one feel so present. Especial-ly in a town like Bunclody’

Setting up his easel, positioning his sound recorder, and focusing on an area to paint, Ed says he gets a real sense of the space and place that he is in. ‘A busy thoroughfare with people going about their daily business, and traffic starting, moving, stalling,blowing, stopping and beeping and calling. Passers-by passing comment, asking me is this what I do everyday?! It really is a great way to get to chat to people and for them to see how their town gets painted’

The sound of the breeze through the trees along the mall and the stream trickling gently, provides both a soothing field recording as well as clean water for Ed to mix his paints and inks with.

‘Mother Nature, generously provides me with the scenery paint, it’s audio delights ,as well materials to work with, making the ordinary, very extraordinary!’

But mankind has a hand in it too, surely?

‘Of course. Most of my paintings depict Bunclodys’ old streets, decorated with lines of parked and passing cars. To some folk, some of this traffic may look so futuristic and transient, that it almost removes us from the present time, but coupled with the realisation and truth that one day it will look so old fashioned

Bunclody ICA - New members needed

It is 70 years since ICA was started in Bunclody. The guild has always been very active in the parish for all those years. We want to keep that tradition alive. But, due in no small way to Covid 19 and the demographic ageing of our members, we are desperately looking for new members to join our guild. We meet once a month and have a guest speaker. Sometimes have various crafts, etc at our meeting. We also meet once a month for coffee and chat in local restaurant. Sadly, if we do not get new members, we may have to close the guild. If you have 2 hours to spare, once a month, and to keep the guild open, which was kept going by so many wonderful women in the past.

Please phone 087 2805426 or 086 8135587

We Often get satisfaction from the things we own, clothes, cars, homes, gadgets, or money. There would be something unnatural if we did not. But what happens to us when our possessions begin to ‘own us, when they take hold of us, when we become obsessed with them? Jesus seeks followers who have the freedom to let go of possessions in order to be a servant of others. In whom have you seen this freedom ? When have you experienced it yourself?

Growth implies change. That change some-times means letting go of something we have at this moment : job, status, home, security, or something else we value. There can be apparent loss in letting go. Yet have you ever found that you gained by having the freedom to let go of something to which you had previously clung.

The disciples thought that Jesus was making impossible demands of people following him. He acknowledged that discipleship was impossible to us on our own efforts alone. How have you experienced the benefits of the help of others and of God when you were faced with difficulties in life.

John Byrne


The featured video this week is a talk by Prof. Patricia Casey on how to support those who care for people with mental health struggles. The homily for the Twenty-Eighth Sunday of Ordinary Time is offered by Sr Louise O’ Rourke who reflects on Jesus’ encounter with the rich young man. We feature Bishop Robert Barron’s series on the Rosary for the month of October and an article on why mission matters for this month which is also dedicated to the missions. There is an important article on ‘Keeping the Faith’ published by Dr Christian Smith in ‘First Things’ and inspiring quotes from Saints John 23rd and Teresa of Avila whose feast days we celebrate this week.
