Feis Laitiarain Cullen

Feis Laitiarain Cullen recently held a local commemoration for Feis Laitiarain on St Laitiarain’s Day 25-Jul-2020. The history of the Feis was presented along with folklore associated with St. Laitiarain. There was a tribute to Diarmuid O’Cadhla (Der Kiely)  RIP and his grandfather Sean O’Cadhla who set up the first Feis plus stories, pipes, music and songs.   The first Feis was held in Cullen 122 years ago, in 1898 and has been kept alive ever since. The Feis was particularly challenged during the troubles of 1918 when planes flew low to the ground overhead to try to disrupt the Feis, but the Feis goers held strong and continued with the Feis.

Local musicians, world class piper, singers and story tellers performing here carry the music nationwide and beyond with outstanding comments from people from here to New Zealand on social media outlets during the Covid-19 lockdown.   They represent the local Comhaltas, Pipe Band and Scór GAA branches and have achieved several County, Provincial, All Ireland and World titles.

62 Christmases in New York

Tommy Ring moved from Cullen to New York in 1957, one of many that left behind what was known as the decade of doom. He featured this week in an article about the Seniors Christmas Lunch at the New York Irish Centre:

… While measures of success can be hard to quantify, on an anecdotal level, the regulars at the New York Irish Centre appear to have had no regrets, and were able to push past feelings of homesickness and loneliness to build lives here, often ending up in Irish-centric enclaves like Woodside in Queens.

Tommy Ring, who left Millstreet, Co. Cork in 1957 as a “strapping young lad” at the age of 20, was motivated by the same thing that drove so many of Ireland’s youth over the Atlantic at that time: opportunity.

In New York, he found it in the form of a career spanning 43 years as a ramp serviceman in two of the city’s major airports; 10 of them at JFK and 33 at its sister airport, LaGuardia.
And unlike the diaspora of the previous century, there wasn’t as much of a sense of finality in moving to the US.
“I used to go back to visit [Ireland] twice a year,” he said, referencing one of the perks of working for the airports. “We got free travel after 15 years.”…

Tommy Ring pledges the oath of allegiance at the New York Irish Center’s annual Christmas lunch.
