Eily’s Report – 6th August

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.

Already the first week of August has passed us by and I hope it left you well and happy. The weather over the weekend was rather challenging with heavy downpours playing havoc with many outdoor events. But the sun was quick to come out in most cases brightening spirits again. I was lucky enough to enjoy a family break  in Bearra ,with lots of young and not so young to add variety to the trip. The heavy rains turned the giant waterfall at Hungry Hill into a raging torrent and at the same time turn lesser streams into busy cascades running down  from the high rocky mountains. Well worth driving out to see. Sadly an outdoor fundraiser by the local GAA Club was a washout, as were many others.  But rain or no rain, the crowds were immense,and with lots of modern day facilities our weather poses no great problem. The organisers of the Platform at Mushera planned well in advance and held their popular dance at the indoors at nearby Ballinagree, on Sunday, where a great time was had by all. There are many more events planned for the next few weeks before the end of the school holidays.

Music for Marie: The Shandrum Céilí Band in Concert This Sunday at 8pm in Knocknagree Church

A night of celebration and remembrance for Marie Collins who passed away in January 2018 will take place on the August Bank Holiday Sunday (4th) in Knocknagree Church, Co. Cork and all proceeds are going to Sudden Adult Death Ireland. In store for those in attendance is an evening of traditional music, song and dance hosted by Three-in-a-row All-Ireland Champions, The Shandrum Céilí Band.

Concert organiser Timmy Collins said: My mom, Marie, has been described as a pillar of the community and was adored by many. Originally from Knocknagree, she married my Dad, Danny, in 1992 and made the big move to Doon, Kiskeam. She loved music and bestowed upon me, more so than anyone else, my love and loyalty for Sliabh Luachra music. I also got my skill for organisation and social media from her, long before she set up her business DigiPulse Marketing. We will remember and celebrate her at this very special event – Ní hé líon na bport, ach feabhas an cheoil.  [read more …] “Music for Marie: The Shandrum Céilí Band in Concert This Sunday at 8pm in Knocknagree Church”

“Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 This Sunday at 7pm

We thank Presenter, John Greene, for advance information regarding this Sunday (4th Aug. 2019) evening’s programme on C103.  (S.R.)

‘Where the road takes me’ returns this week with the second and concluding programme which looks at the scuttling of German U-Boat 260,  three miles south of Glandore harbour a few weeks before the end of WW11.

The story is told mainly throught the eyes and ears of  eighty seven year old Mary McCarthy, who was then a thirteen year old on the Galley Head, where eleven of the crew climbed up a dangerous precipice beneath the light-house. 

In the concluding programme we examine the three main theories for the scuttling of the submarine, and based on the evidence and information gathered on the programme, come to our own conclusion. 

Reports and logbooks from the Gardai and Coast-watch are examined, and from an interview conducted with two of the submarine’s officers, we get their views on the war, including how their school-going youth are being trained to successfully eliminate enemy tanks.

from “Baily’s Magazine of Sports and Passtimes 1919”:

There are very few men in the Kingdom today who could boast of a more brilliant or a more successful career in sport than Major Aubrey Wallis-Wright, Farming Woods Hall, Brigstock, Northsmpyonshire, and Master of the Woodland Pytchley Hounds. Born on July 4th, 1861, at Drishane Castle, Co.Cork, Major Wallis-Wright was the son of Mr.John Richard Smyth Wallis, High Sheriff of Co.Cork in 1857. In 1883 Major Wallis-Wright married Elizabeth Caroline, eldest daughter of the Hon. Yelverton Bingham, fifth son of Lord Clanmorris, by whom he had one son and a daughter. The former Lieutenant Henry Digby Wallis, Coldstream Guards, was killed at Ypres during October, 1914, The death of this gallant son proved a heavy blow to the Master of the Woodland and Pytchley. An extraordinary affection and spirit of camaraderie existed between father and son, and it was the dream of the former’s life that his heir and the “last of the line” should take over the family pack of Kerry Beagles on his retirement from office.
In 1907 Major Wallis-Wright married Julia Mary Catherine, window of the late Captain EW Curteis, who on the death of her mother Mrs Julia Catherine Wright, succeeded to the Mottram estates, Cheshire. In September 1916, the surname of … (there’s 2 more page on Aubrey in the article, but are not currently availbale)

The Kerry Black and Tans.
It is interesting to learn that the fine pack of Kerry Beagles,
which are showing sport in the Woodland Pytchley country, will
shortly come into the market, Major Aubrey Wallis-Wright having
decided to give up the Mastership . These black-and-tan hounds
have been in the Master’s family for many generations, and are
famous for their hunting qualities. Originally they were hunted
in Ireland, then went into the Ribblesdale pack and hunted the
wild buck in Lancashire and Yorkshire . Major Wallis-Wright got
the strain back, and formed a pack which hunted the Four Burrow
country in Cornwall . When he accepted the Mastership of the
Woodland Pytchley in 1913 he took the Kerry Hounds with him.
They are remarkably powerful hounds, the dogs averaging 25 ins.
and the bitches 231 ins. They have exceptional bone, and not a
single hound stands over at the knees. Major Wallis-Wright has
bred them with the utmost care, using only sires and dams that
have well proved their working ability. An offshoot of the
Pytchley country, the Woodland has always been noted for the
superior quality of its hounds. When Lord Lonsdale hunted the
country he brought one of the finest packs in the kingdom from
the Blanknev kennels. His successor, Mr. Austin Mackenzie,
brought his own hounds from the Old Berkeley country, and when
he gave up the Mastership fourteen years later he sold the pack for
5,000 guineas, Mr. W. M. Wroughton buying the bitches for
£3,000 and lending them to Lord Southampton, who hunted the
country for a couple of seasons. Mr. E. A. V. Stanley also had a
very fine pack at the Brigstock kennels. In regard to working
quality the present pack compares favourably with any of its predecessors, and the black-and-tans are likely to be keenly sought
after. [Polo Monthly 1920]

Polo Players as M .F .H’s.
Polo players are likely to he strongly represented on the list
of M.F.H.’s next season. Captain George Renyille, for example,
has arranged to take Major Aubrey Wallis-Wright’s place in the
command of the Woodland Pytchley Hounds. He should make
an excellent M .F.H . He has been getting his hand in this winter
by helping his old friend, Mr. Isaac Bell, with the Kilkenny
Hounds. The keenest of sportsmen, Captain Bellville is generally
popular. Polo readers will remember the dashing games he used
to put up for the Old Cantabs, helping that grand team to win
seyeral Champion Cups. Unfortunately, the bad wound he
receiyed early in the war prevented him from playing polo last
summer, when he had to content himself with serying as official
umpire of the chief Ranelagh matches. [Polo Monthly 1920]

Captain Robert Law (1890-1973). Like his two younger brothers, Robert was educated at Haileybury, a boarding school 20 miles from London, returning to Beamont during the holidays. During the First World War, he served with the Royal Dublin Fusiliers and won a Military Cross. A fearless eccentric, he later went to West Africa where he shot twelve bull elephants but got charged by the thirteenth which left him badly mauled. He later emerged from the jungle with a hoard of ivory, claiming he had survived by eating an exclusive diet of bananas, which fruit he never ate again. He subsequently eloped with Audrey Beatrix Wallis of Drishae Castle, Millstreet, Co. Cork, sold Beamont and settled on the Boyne at Rossnaree, Co. Meath, where members of the Law family still live today.

A talk on disused school houses of Ireland by Enda O’Flaherty, author of ‘The Deserted School Houses of Ireland’. The theme of the talk will be revisiting memory and place: Memory is dynamic and fluid – a pulsing living thing. It can be stretched, coveted, erased and manipulated by the individual, the environment and the circumstances from which it is recalled. The tumbling buildings featured in this talk and exhibition were once working schools where early childhood memories were formed.
