Month of May  We welcome the month of May. May is the first month of Summer in the Irish calendar. The first day of May was celebrated and throughout the month new beginnings were marked so the month is often mentioned in folklore and proverbs.

May is also the month devoted to Our Lady, beginning of Summer, month of the cuckoo, swallows and flowers. Lord, be with us during the month of May. We can show our love for Our Lady by reciting the Rosary and the following hymn during the month of May:
