“Here is a song we have liked for a long time and decided to record it. The song is called Aidan, Written by Rathcoole native Jeremiah O’Keeffe about his young nephew. Jeremiah is the writer of many fine songs . In this song he encourages children to enjoy childhood and not be in too much of a hurry to grow up. Although written a couple of decades ago the song lyrics are very relevant in today’s fast moving world.
Aidan was arranged and produced by Noel O’Leary from Millstreet a well known Musician and Producer.WishKelting everybody a very Happy Christmas and Peaceful New Year.” – The Kelts

Eily’s Report – 18th December

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

The howling winds and driving rains, which have continued all day are still  are at work outside as I settle down to write my last report before Christmas.  And pray that all will be safe.

This is  my last chance to remind you, to please shop at home. Please give our local stores and services one last push, to help them to survive into 2019 against all the pressures of on-line shopping and big department  stores.

The good work in aid of the needy goes on. And ‘Work’ parties are the order of the day as the days wear down to the wonderful festival of Christmas.
