Country: Ireland
1st Broadcast: 10th October 1963
Duration: 27’02”

Black Valley Church The people of the Black Valley in Killarney wanted to rebuild and restore their venerable church, but the sheer inaccessibility of its location gave them a set of serious practical problems to overcome.

Station Mass From time to time a parishioner is given the honour of having a Mass said in their home. It involves great preparation on the part of the householder, and enhances their standing in the community. Radharc tracks the process in this intimate cottage environment. Light-hearted observations are made about dogs, eggs, tea and the ladies of the house as the occasion wraps up with a musical evening.
