3rd Sunday of Easter
“Throw the net out to starboard.”(Jn 21.6)
Thought for the week: “Lord, teach me how to fish – in my family and in Corowa for disciples, and in the Murray for fish!”
Snippets of St Mary’s History (cont.) MICHAEL KENNEDY
Michael Kennedy was born in Dublin and came to Australia in the 1850s; he was an engineer by profession and worked for a time at Bendigo. In 1861, John Foord of Wahgunyah formed a company to build the first bridge over the Murray between Wahgunyah and Corowa. Michael Kennedy and a fellow engineer were brought from Bendigo to work on the construction of the bridge. On its completion in 1863, Kennedy who had grown to like the township, decided with his wife to stay.
He purchased the Carriers Arms Hotel in Albury Road. Among the travelling public to make use of his services were the priests from Albury, who would change their horses there before continuing their journey to Jerilderie. He remained in Corowa until his death in 1910.
There were two sons and three daughters in the family. Son, Michael, remained in Corowa and his daughter, Mrs J O’Donoghue, snr. and her son, John and his family, reside in the parish . Two of the daughters also remained, Kate (Mrs Tom Gallagher) and Margaret (Mrs Chisnall). Mrs Catherine A King and her children of whom Ken King and Mrs Doris Robinson still reside in the parish, as well as Mrs Maisie Filliponi, whose father was Alf Chisnall.
