Eily’s Report – 28th June

 

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my report.

Some like the rain, some don’t, but we all need it at least the land and the world around us do. It’s when nice warm sunny days turn wet, windy and cold days come that it becomes hard to bear. Warm clothes which were consigned to the shelf for the summer are pulled out again leaving us with over stocked wardrobes, crooks at the back of the bedroom door, or any other place where they can be easily accessed in a moment of chill, or wild shower. It’s a time when winter and summer clothes have to learn to live together. Not something that we like, but have to accept. People coming home from sunny climes, tell us of long hours day in and day out of brilliant sunshine. Little more than flimsy gear to cover their sun-starved bodies as they cash in on their good value break. But we live in hope of an improved July with lots of sun.

  1.  The significance of the number 102!!   See the following to learn about the amazing fundraising 102km Big Walk for Little Lives which recently took place in Co. Waterford…..This is a summary of the story as told by Maria and Jonathan Radley Our daughter, Christina, was born extremely prematurely at 27 weeks + 4 days on 25.06.2021 in CUMH, weighing 1 pound 2 Oz. To our absolute naivety, little did we know the journey Christina and all of us would have ahead of us. Her “new womb” aka Neonatal ICU (NICU) through state of the art technology, the most amazingly gifted and more importantly caring people, Christina survived & thrived, with a lot of bumps & hurdles along the way. For the duration of Christina’s time in NICU (102 days), Brú Columbanus became our “home away from home”. A family room at this amazing facility was made available to us with absolutely no requirement of payment. This meant that we were within walking distance of  Christina at all times. To this extent, no words will ever suffice on our behalf for both Neo ICU & Brú Columbanus however we feel it’s the least we can do to raise funds for both facilities and more importantly raise awareness of what amazing and devoted people they are.

Eily’s Report – 21st June

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my report.

Monday June 20, and beautiful sun drenched day to herald in the longest day of the year. The turf is drying  rapidly in the bog, making up for a late start and there is a vast increase in the number of patrons seeking peat fuel this year. Turf  has been the saving grace of our people for centuries. Apart from giving employment it gave light and heat to the poorest of the poor. When oil was scarce during the 39/45 war we did our lessons by the light of the fire. From beginning to end turf gave exercise and hope to both man and beast who were involved in rescuing it from it’s bed of slush on mountains and flatlands. Turf was created when it built itself up over the centuries. The vegetation which grew on the boggy surface rotted down over the years and ever so slowly grew into tall banks ready for the day when man and shleán came to avail of it. The jelly-like surface held together only by a thin film of greenery. So bogs by nature are pretty inaccessible and in the old days the best help which was available to cope with it’s soft terrain was the humble ass. Men cut the turf and spread out on the ground to dry but getting it to hard ground by the roadside was in many cases done  by a donkey.   Creels or baskets strewn across the animal’s back were commonly used in the West of Ireland. A scene which featured in many a picture postcard, but not so around here, so homemade inventions were put together for the task. Day after day the nimble beast made the rounds from bank to roadside ferrying the precious turf on some sheet of tin or timber dray until the last ciraan was out.  To be collected later by a powerful horse and crib and brought  home. At home many turf sheds were placed a distance from the dwelling house, in a sort of effort to spare it. The word spare was applied to most things that time. Spare the turf,  a cranky man could be heard saying to the wife, Spare that turf, you were a long way from the bank when I was cutting it. But he still had to get his dinner. Once home the turf had to be brought into the house for the fire. So a jute or meal bag was the normal receptacle. Young lads were usually the ones for this task, at least it was in  our house.  As he headed off bag in hand he would go with the warning to bring the dry ones and as he filled his sack with sods  he had to do his best to obey orders, and you dare not give a back answer or a well placed clip in the ear could follow. Needless to say sods of turf got broken in transit, small pieces were known as Ciaraans, while more turned to dust and  was called turf bruss. Ciaraans were very welcome when the fire was bad. They were very like lumps of coal and they ignited very fast and always gave new life to a sulking hearth. On the other hand turf bruss or turf dust as some people called it was rarely used for anything. It’s hard for us now to imagine that the fuel which served us so well for centuries has now become a forbidden thing. It almost feels like the  betrayal of an old friend.

Eily’s Report – 14th June

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my report.

It’s hard to imagine that my next Report (dv) after this one will be on the longest day of the year. June 21. So don’t say that I didn’t tell you that the year is moving on. Moving on it is and we can’t stop it but are we making the full use of the passing days and weeks and months. There is no use in blaming the weather because we can do nothing about it but there are things that we can do regardless. The old saying the It’s better to light a candle than curse the dark, can also apply to the way that we can motivate ourselves into taking on a plan B if the sun don’t shine. God Bless our crowd  of who  headed off on a bus to Donegal on Monday morning 50 plus of them both men and women for four days all organised by our excellent Active Retired Committee. I know they will love it because I went on the very same program a few years ago with a lovely group from Castlemagner. But as I’m not the sit-at-home type I’ve booked a couple of more locally based trips. For a mere €25 the well  known Jerry Lehane will take us on  day trips around the rings of Kerry or Beara and even to Galway and more. He knows all the best places to stop and shop and eat and stretch the legs. In his very own relaxing way. Look him up on our website for details.

Remembering the Wonderful Breeda Tarrant

Michael Tarrant has shared the following in remembering Breeda:  “On Saturday, 4th June 2022 we got to bury my mother’s ashes in St. Mary’s Cemetery as were her wishes. I would like to thank people that made it a special day for us as a family. Canon John Fitzgerald and Sharon Lane for their help with organising the Mass. Edel Frazer and Niamh O’Mahony for the wonderful music in the Church.  Marie Twomey for playing the bagpipes at the grave and Davy Tarrant also.  Humphrey Healy and Caroline and Staff at the Bridge Bar, Millstreet for looking after us so well. Thanks to everyone who travelled from near and far to be with us.”
