Eily’s Report – 16th January

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

In spite of all the changes in our climate, it is still so typical of this time of year to bring frost and cold and maybe snow, nice perhaps in it’s own way but causing disruption in many things. Just at a time when we’re beginning to wake up after the Christmas break. Everybody anxious to get going, advertisements and notices already gone to where they can get the best attention and then wham, snow and ice on the forecast.  Social and voluntary events are the most affected. Business people make up their own minds and act on their own judgement.  But to hold that card game or dance or keep fit class in chancy weather is the headache of all those who organise and run them on a voluntary basis. But one thing in their favour these days is the mobile phone.  Some patrons will risk life and limb to come out, while others remain undecided and doubtful.  But one text or call will settle it all when a thing is called off.  People are great at spreading the word. If the people in charge know of someone in a district who attends regularly they can send the message there and that person will send it and on to others. In the end all can breathe easy in the knowledge that all were safe. One of the worst things that can happen is to cancel on the previous day, only to find that when the planned time comes, there is no frost at all. Believe me I speak from experience. My long years of dealing with such things left me wise.
