Eily’s Report – 6th August

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

Already the first week of August has passed us by and I hope it left you well and happy. The weather over the weekend was rather challenging with heavy downpours playing havoc with many outdoor events. But the sun was quick to come out in most cases brightening spirits again. I was lucky enough to enjoy a family break  in Bearra ,with lots of young and not so young to add variety to the trip. The heavy rains turned the giant waterfall at Hungry Hill into a raging torrent and at the same time turn lesser streams into busy cascades running down  from the high rocky mountains. Well worth driving out to see. Sadly an outdoor fundraiser by the local GAA Club was a washout, as were many others.  But rain or no rain, the crowds were immense,and with lots of modern day facilities our weather poses no great problem. The organisers of the Platform at Mushera planned well in advance and held their popular dance at the indoors at nearby Ballinagree, on Sunday, where a great time was had by all. There are many more events planned for the next few weeks before the end of the school holidays.
