Eily’s Report – 1st February

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

Welcome to the month of February. If you are feeling down or sorry for yourself today, then cast your mind back to this time in 2020 and again in 2021, what a sad lot we were with a worldwide killer on the loose and no hope of controlling it’s spread. The thumb screw was getting tighter every minute as the world leaders in medicine and politics tried to make sense of it all and find some common ground to build on. It isn’t over yet, at least now here we are full of cautious hope and plans for the future. Buíochas le Dia.

 Today February 1st  is St Bridget’s Day and what better way to spend it than  to pray to her, our own treasured Irish Patron  Saint  and ask her to guide us through our new normal ways of life. St.Bridget  was everybody’s friend but especially the people of rural Ireland and we have very few people today who have not sprung from the land soon or later. Many Irish people will either make or lay their  hands on a St. Bridget’s Cross today made of simple strands of bogland rush, which they will hang up in the homes for the coming year  and those who remembered to hang out a piece of cloth last night will treasure it in the same way.
