Eily’s Report – 28th March

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly Report.

The hour we lost at the weekend when we moved our clocks forward is already giving us brighter evenings, or as we used to say long ago more lightsome. It’s a long time since we heard that word and in other words also such as lonesome, troublesome, tiresome and others as well which don’t come to mind just now. Instead we now say lonely, troubled, weary etc. Funny how we change without even knowing it.  In the past they had a word or phrase for everything. Arising out of some simple statement that somebody let fall off the tip of their tongue on some occasion. For example, ‘Too Late says Puller’, the horse is dead, is a statement that was used over and over when it didn’t even apply to a horse being dead. I never heard of the true origin of it, but I can barely recall a man of that name who lived in the town. Apparently the help or vet didn’t make it on time to save the horse’s life and it died but the words of its owner lived on and on. It was applied to just about every situation after that.   In a case of perhaps someone not making up the hay before the rain came, “Too late says puller” said it all. The list goes on, it rolled off the tongue so easily when the occasion arose. “Too late says Puller”.

A Celebration of Culture & Inclusion – Millstreet CS – Thank You.

We thank John Magee, Millstreet Community School, for the following Report:
“A Celebration of Culture & Inclusion – Millstreet CS – Thank You.
This event which took place on Thursday 23rd March 2023 was a great success. The school library packed and the audience was able to enjoy music, song, poems, different languages being spoken and dancing from different cultures, including Ireland.  Afterwards there was a wide variety of food to taste from around the world.  We were also able to welcome our special quest, Mr Homayoon Shrizad.  He spoke about his experience of being a refugee from Afghanistan and his current work for Schools of Sanctuary Ireland. 
Like all such events, there are lots of people to thank for making it all possible, many of whom were mentioned on the night.  Some though warrant a special mention.
Firstly, all those who contributed food for the night.  A special word of thanks to O’Leary’s Family Butchers, Tony O’Brien Master Butchers and the Golden Wok, all of whom provided delicious wonderful dishes for those attending to taste.
Secondly, Marion Buckley, Jennifer O’Donoghue, Bernie McAuliffe and Gillian O’Riordan, who stayed behind to tidy up in the school canteen after everyone had left.
Thirdly to O’Keeffe’s Supervalu Millstreet for providing three beautiful hampers as prizes for the ‘countries quiz’ that took place during the evening.
Fourthly, thanks to Wordsworth Book and Gift Shop for donating the first prize in the MCS Art competition  on the theme of ‘belonging’.
All in all,  a wonderful evening.  A special thanks to all who attended.”
