Eily’s Report – 16th May

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

The unpredictable wafts of cold breezes go a long way to cool the lovely May sunshine but it doesn’t prevent us from hoping for more settled weather in the near future. For those of us who can choose our time and the right spot  can still find little nooks and crannies where we can sit and enjoy a warm spell. On the other hand younger folks can speed up their pace of life, move a little faster and beat the cold breeze at it’s own game. I spent most of last week with a friend enjoying the hospitality of other family friends in Youghal. The name of their place in Rathmore House, a magnificent edifice which was built by a Rathmore man by the name of Walsh in 1929. It commands a clear view of the sea but a safe distance from the wild ocean waves which bombard the rows of other stately ones nearer the sea.   Recent development of the promenade have been extended by a modern board walk, inviting you to go further. Plans are afoot to continue the board walk all the way to Midleton, surely every walkers dream.
