Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
The month of August is certainly living up to it’s name as being a season of floods and change with many places in the County paying the price with their homes and places of business destroyed by flash floods. But it is not all doom and gloom, there is always something to be cheerful about and the recent past being no exception. We have to put all sob stories aside and think of happy things. Take the two young men who saved young lives at sea during the week. One lad in Dublin threw his own safety to the wind and jumped in and saved two youngsters from being drowned. Meanwhile off the West Coast a young lad out on the fishing boat with his Dad, was the first to spot the two ladies as they clung to a lobster pot for 15 long hours and what young lad of his age wouldn’t change places with him for being the knight in shining armor to rescue two damsels in distress from a watery grave in the deep. All night the country held it’s breath and prayed that the cousins would be found safe. The pulse of the nation took a leap next morning at the wonderful news that they were found safe and well . No doubt the two heroic lads will have a great story to tell for the rest of their lives. bBuíochas le Dia.
