Appreciation: Leslie Matson

Appreciation: Leslie Matson, author who immortalised culture of Blasket Islands

He embedded himself in the community and culture of the west Kerry Gaeltacht

 We thank Noel Buckley for sharing the Appreciation to Leslie Matson which recently appeared in “The Irish Times”.  (S. R.)

Leslie Matson is among that select group of authors who have immortalised in literature the rich culture of the Blasket Islands, along with others such as Robin Flower, Carl Marstrander, Peig Sayers, Tomás Ó Criomhthain and Muiris Ó Súilleabháin.

He was initially drawn to Corca Dhuibhne in 1954 to improve his Irish so he could register as a teacher, staying with the legendary “Kruger” Kavanagh.

Never a man to do things by half, he embedded himself in the community as well as in the culture of the west Kerry Gaeltacht.

His social research on the 125 former inhabitants of the Blasket Islands stands as a valuable resource to scholars for posterity.

He befriended Mártan Ó Catháin, a nephew of Máire “Méiní” Dunleavy (1876-1967) who had been the Blasket midwife for 36 years.

Méiní, not accustomed to the name Leslie, hilariously called him “Italy” and that was how local people greeted him, “Conas atá Italy inniu?”.

Encouraged by Mícheál de Mórdha, Bainisteoir Ionad an Bhlaoscaid, he wrote Méiní, the Blasket Nurse, which was published by Mercier Press in February 1996.

Apart from his social research, he was a renowned linguist, teacher, chorister and a much loved family man. He enjoyed speaking Irish, French, German and Russian, and was widely read in English and French, quoting the classics from memory.

Blaskets

He began his teaching career in Aravon School in Bray followed by Villiers School in Limerick, however most of his teaching career was in Newtown School, Waterford where he taught mainly French and was Senior Master.

From 1977 he spent six years as headmaster of Sligo Grammar School before teaching in Millstreet Community School. He retired at 65 (~1995) and returned to live in Waterford where he continued his work on the Blaskets and on the archives of Newtown School.

Julia Sheila Becker (1927-2020)

On the second of March, we lost one of the most impactful people you ever met. Once a maid, working her way to the title of “Doctor,” Sheila Becker was a strong, driven, empowering woman. Most of all, she was a character.

Dr. Julia “Sheila” Becker, née O’Sullivan passed away on March 2, 2020, age 92 years and 8 months.

Born in Claraghatlea, Millstreet, County Cork, Ireland on June 28, 1927, Sheila was raised in a large Irish family with 16 siblings. Having no running water or electricity, Sheila often said she grew up on fresh air.

Sheila became a nanny and midwife in London, helping deliver hundreds of babies. Her ticket to America in 1955 came at the age of 28, due to the nursing shortage. Sheila was a Registered Nurse and her trip to America was the opportunity of a life time.

As for many immigrants, her arrival to America brought the opportunity for a better life. Sheila continued her education, receiving her Masters in Social Work and culminating in her PhD in Clinical Psychology from the Center for Humanistic Studies, at the age of 67. Over the years, Sheila counselled many individuals and families, helping them work through life’s conflicts and emotional distress. Her strength of character and strong religious beliefs made her a role model for many.  [read more …] “Julia Sheila Becker (1927-2020)”
