Huge Demonstration at Moll Carthy’s

Ahead of this evening’s table quiz at Moll Carthy’s Bridge, we briefly look back at an event when 6,000 people converged on Moll Carthy’s:

“On January 23 (1887), an enthusiastic demonstration under the auspices of the National League was held at Moll Carthy’s Bridge, situated eight miles from the town of Kanturk. There was an enormous assemblage, estimated at 6,000 persons. There were two brass bands and several fife and dram bands in attendance, accompanied by contingents from all the surrounding branches of the League, including Banteer, Dromagh, Dromtarriff, Millstreet, Ballyvourney, Carrigenema, Newmarket, Ballyclough, Lyre, Kilcorney, and Nadd. A large force of police under the Millstreet district inspector was present. A Government note-taker was also present and took notes of the speeches.” – from the NZ Tablet

The Pride Of Kilcorney

From where she first looked on the bright lamp of day
The Pride of Kilcorney she lives far away
She lived in the house by the silver tongued rill
Babbling down from the high fields by Mushera Hill
With shoulder length wavy raven hair and chestnut brown eyes
Such beauty that to songs and stories gives rise
One young man in Kilcorney for lost love does grieve
That she will return to Kilcorney he no longer believe
She left Kilcorney some eight years ago
And he has not heard from her for five years or so
Rumor has it in Australia she is a mother and wife
And quite happy and content in her new way of life
A young man in Kilcorney thinks of her every day
But then such is life as some are known to say.

Ophelia Wind Times for Tomorrow

It has been eerily calm all day. The animals and birds have hardly uttered a sound, like they know something is coming. Ophelia is nearly upon us, and tomorrow morning we’ll wake to the rising storm, possibly the strongest to hit us in over 50 years. If you haven’t tied everything loose down by now, it is probably too late. Above all stay safe and don’t do anything stupid like going out in it or driving. Things can be replaced, people can’t. In town, people have been asking what time the storm will be, well the answer is most of the daylight hours, the worst at lunchtime … below is the best current estimate for tomorrow. The best to everyone. Bíonn grásta Dé idir an diallait agus an talamh. 🙏
