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”.

Eily’s Report – 21st March

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

It was indeed an action packed weekend starting with St. Patrick’s Day on Friday, Six Nations Championship on Saturday and Mothers Day on Sunday coupled with the wonderful Parade in Carriganima in honour of our Patron Saint. The bad weather forecast on the previous days left the organisers on tender hooks in many places, but the Luck of the Irish was on us and there wasn’t an umbrella in sight as our parade made it’s way through the town. It was indeed a multiracial event, with a variety of nationalities taking part. There was a large representation of Ukrainian people of many ages, they stood before the reviewing stand, sang a song of their own country and despite the language barrier expressed their gratitude in the best way they could  as they passed along. Many other nationalities also took part. There was a very good attendance and as always the food outlets, bars and other services did a lively trade. Our Pipe Band played us into the church for 11.30 Mass. The lovely Choir sang very appropriate hymns, the priest blessed the shamrock, Band member Michael McCarthy read the lesson beautifully as Gaeilge and as a finale, their rousing recital of Highland Cathedral filled our huge church with music. On my way down the church I met an elderly lady who came to live in Millstreet in her retirement, she was overawed by it all as everybody was and said to me “haven’t we everything here, oh, the lovely uplifting band”. Needless to say I smiled in agreement. Following the Mass the band  had to beat a hasty retreat to play in Killarney before making it home for our own parade at five. Yes we are blessed.

Cullen and District Special Needs Association

The grand finale of our 36th Annual #WeighIn was on Monday March 13th, when a large number of participants eagerly awaited the announcement of the winners in the different categories.
This year we again invited representatives of the various centres, where our friends are educated and made a financial presentation on your behalf to them i.e. Michael Hegarty CEO. St Josephs Foundation, Charleville, Mary Fogarty – COPE Mallow and Kanturk, COPE Cork. Gillian Kenny, of Kerry Parents and Friends Association represented Tearmann Lodge and Glebe house, Castleisland. They all replied and expressed their sincere gratitude and deepest appreciation for this financial boost. They paid tribute to the generosity of the Association and their many supporters who support the various fundraising projects. Due to Government cut backs in funding, their needs are greater more than ever and voluntary fundraising is hugely important to enable these centres to achieve high standards and services to enhance the lives of people with an intellectual disability.

We had fantastic support with 87 cards being issued, making it a very busy 10 nights for Healthy Body Wealthy Mind with Marie O’ Sullivan who co-ordinated #WeighIn and spoke to each participant individually and discussed a suitable weight loss over the ten weeks. Hannah O’Connor expertly guided an exercise to music class. Their contribution to the success of the Weigh-in is immense.
We are fortunate to have so many professionals who volunteer their services to the cause and we are indebted to the many people who give so generously their time, – Healthy Body Wealthy Mind with Marie O’ Sullivan, our wonderful participants, sponsors and all who contributed in any way to the success of this annual event, also to the Cullen Community Centre, Photographers, Seán Radley, John Tarrant, Phil O’Sullivan, The Corkman, Eily Buckley, C103 Cork.
The occasion is always a very pleasant and sociable one and is invariably enjoyed by everybody. Incidentally the first ever #weighin was held on Jan. 20th 1986 and in that period of time thousands of Euros have been raised through the generous sponsorship of our loyal and dedicated participants. At a time when there is so much media coverage relating to how charitable donations have been used or misused, we are pleased to be able to assure our supporters and sponsors that every cent and Euro sponsored or donated goes directly in to our funds and is presented to reps of the various centres where local children are educated and cared for.
Our sincere thanks for your continued support.
