Eily’s Report – 23rd May

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

Blue skies, lovely sunshine and a gentle breeze not an easy time to settle down to write. But there is a fine wash blowing on the line, so let that be my consolation. Good for You, Mother Nature.

The month of May is fading fast but not without proof that it’s a good one. The silage season is in full swing and by all accounts the yield is good. Grass lands and cornfields also. These are the most important features in any year. To see the food crops doing well is reason enough for us all to rejoice. The white thorns are weighed down with flowers and there is a huge crab-apple tree on our road and the show of blossoms has to be seen to be believed and as I mentioned our road. The County Council have spent a lot of time and effort cleaning the margins all the way from Church Street to Kilmeedy Bridge. No half measures, they took away all the growth right in to the wall/ditch. Which is great. Trouble is that people still continue to throw litter out of their cars and with no grass margins to hide them they completely ruin the whole scene. We can only ask the offenders to please change their ways and remind them once again that a hefty fine awaits anybody who is caught.  The anti-litter applies to both town and country areas .
