Eily’s Report 14th February

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly Report.

I’ll mention it first in case you forgot to get a gift for the one you love and you may be able to save yourself at the last minute by going off and grabbing a life-saver for yourself at the last minute. St. Valentines Day surely puts a stir on things in February when all around us is looking out for a little bit of escapism. There was very little talk about St. Val’s Day in our youth,  a wink or a nod would go a long way to send the message . It’s a long way from the commercialiasion of today when online shopping can deliver the most exotic creations to your door at a price that anybody can afford. Or a quick phone call could get flowers delivered hey presto. So I wish you all the joys of the day that’s in it.
