Eily’s Report – 23rd April

Dia is Mhuire dióbh go léir a cairde and welcome to my Report.

This is the day, this is the day that the Lord has made. That the Lord has made.   Let us rejoice, let us rejoice,  and be glad He did.

Oh the joy of a warm sunny spell and I hope that everybody is making full use of it. It seems a pity that little children have to spend long hours in class when their bodies would benefit so much from the  warmth of the sun and think of all the fun they could have in the great out of doors following the long months of wet weather which we have come through. Thankfully the people of the land are getting an opportunity to do their work. It’s great to see more and more cattle out grazing. Little lambs prancing in the fields and even the little rabbits making an appearance late in the day. Some folks have lots of bunnies around them and sometimes they can even be a problem especially when they make a meal of the baby plants of cabbage or flowers which you have so tenderly put into the ground. I don’t have that problem, living as I am on an island of sorts, encircled by the beautiful Finow river on one side and the busy Main Road on the other, boundaries that keep all wild life away.  So I have to depend on other peoples rabbits for my pleasure. I catch a glimpse of them grazing on the hilly fields as I drive to town. But at breeding time it grieves me to see lots of the little ones foolishly  wondering on to the busy traffic and meeting their waterloo.  But all is not lost as the hungry mother fox makes no delay in availing of a tasty meal. I know, Mother Nature can be cruel at times.
