Baby Jacob had his second operation yesterday and is in recovery now. Unfortunately he is in a lot of pain, is not taking fluids and is very tired, so he has been moved to another hospital. Hopefully he will come around soon.
Rose O’Neill of The Project who is coordinating the current push was interviewed on the C103 news this morning (listen to the audio clip above). They plan on recording the song Something Inside So Strong (by Labi Siffre) as the charity single.
The Baby Jacob facebook page is up to 1,120 fans and growing all the time. It has all the up to date news and info.

Well our Community Council Awards Social which was held at the Wallis Arms Hotel on Friday night, lived up the all expectations. There was an unprecedented demand for tickets, with many of the committee giving up theirs to accommodate others. A wonderful four course meal was served, then the presentations and speeches went ahead, ably headed by Councillor Noel Buckley and the rest of the night was danced away to the beautiful music of the Celts. Look up the papers and our website for all the details. Many thanks to all who helped in any way to make this important event so successful and enjoyable.

I’ve heard that Ballydaly does not have a football team
Which puts a cloud on Tommy Tucker’s dream
That they might win Duhallow for third time
And give some bard another chance to rhyme.
They won their first Duhallow title more than forty years ago
Some time back in the fifties that I know
Though of my dates I’m not too very clear
I think ’twas fifty seven was the year.
When Ballydaly had their first big win
And their footballers were celebtated men
And John Twomey wrote of Ballydaly Boys
And west of Millstreet bonfires lit the skies.

I may die as I live without much to my name
To be Millstreet’s last old fashioned rhymer my one claim to minor fame
The word poet never does apply to such as me
The stuff I pen born to mortality.
From the countryside by Clara I’ve been too long away
I would feel a stranger in Millstreet today
A stranger in Claraghatlea and Millstreet Town
Where I once did know of some local renown.
