People, at Last

Now that I’m vaccinated it’s lovely to get out and about and meet people again. I’ve even taken to bringing my camera when I go for a walk…the new normal?

Here are some folk I met in Childers’ Park last week

Meeting up with old friends is such a simple pleasure.


Fitting Memorials

Whoever thought of the idea of commemorating founding members of Listowel Pitch and Putt Club with sponsored tee boxes was inspired. It’s lovely to see the people who gave so much to the club remembered in a place they loved well. Here are a few of those boxes and some of the magnificent trees those men planted in full bloom in the beautifully presented course in summer 2021.


Tarbert on Facebook

The people at Tarbert Development Association at Tarbert.ie have been posting some great old photos lately. Here are a few from the days when the humble ass and cart was one of the preferred modes of transport in town.


Praying for my former colleagues

Deceased sisters from the local Presentation convent are buried in a big grave at St. Michael’s graveyard. I called there last week.
