Eily’s Report – 30th March

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

This is Holy Week, the clocks are gone one hour ahead and I got my second Jab last Thursday. Lots of new developments to take in, in one week. But changes keep us on the alert and that’s a good thing at any time, moreover in these historic times. I know a few people who didn’t even realise that the clocks had changed and anyway what difference did it make. An hour up or down doesn’t really matter when you have no important engagements  to meet. Mass would be the most important one but if you miss it in our own church,  the  flick of a button will have you attending your weekly obligations in  places as far apart as Boherbue or the Vatican. Those who are fortunate to be working or have children going to school would want to be in the know about the change of time, obviously.
