Visiting Father Farren__Gilbert Chinn

On July 26,  I tagged my wife along to visit Fr Farren in Dublin from The Caribbean Princess cruise ship.
We took the city bus #11 at Trinity College southbound to Cherryfield Lodge.
After we got off the bus we followed the bus driver's direction to walk up the bending road but there was no through road to our destination.
We went back and took another road that leads up to the Lodge.
Fr Farren was saying Mass at the time (10:35am ) when we got there.   We waited and spent half an hour to chat with him after the Mass.
He remembered a number of 61's WY boys and pointed out to me on the big 2011 HK reunion picture that he had.
The first ones were the 2 Martins and Ho Bing Kwong.
I told him I did not graduate from WY. I went to HK Technical College and then further studies in US and Rome, Italy.  I had been an Aircraft engineer for 42 years and now retired.
He fell and got his arm injured while instructing people how to play the back hand tennis. He has fully recovered now.
In all Fr Farren is in good health and "every thing is good" he said.
As we were leaving he wanted to accompany us out to the main walkway, but I insisted that his lunch time was near and we were to do some sightseeing.
We bid farewell at the Lodge entrance. I thanked him for his great dedications to Wah Yan and teaching the WY boys.
My stop in Dublin was worthwhile to see Fr Farren in good health. He is clear, bright and alert, fatherly as well.
