The Matt Treacy Column

8 June 2006

I wonder would Sigerson Clifford have been inspired to pen an epic ballad on the journey from Longford to Dublin. One to perhaps equal his verses on the 'Ghost Train' that carried Kerry supporters to All Ireland finals in the 1930s and 40s? An ode to the intrepid tribes trundling their way homewards over the central plains to the city of the spire. Free article

Cúlchaint le Seán ó Donaile

8 June 2006

Is ait an rud an grá- cheap mé I gconaí go dtitfidh mé I ngrá le spéirbhean óg I ndiaidh póg agus go gceannódh muid tigín beag I lár gleanna le bláthanna ag fás thart air agus geata beag adhmaid; rachainn godtí siopa an bhaicéara I gcomhair arán úr agus beidh sméara ag fás sa ghairdín; bheadh mo spéirbhean ag canadh agus í ag piocadh úll ina sciorta fhada bán agus é ag séideadh sa ghaoth.

Críochdheighilt Aitheanta ar Léarscáileanna

8 June 2006

Tá sé curtha i leith i gcoinne Suirbhé Ordanáis na Sé Chontae is Fiche go bhfuil meon críochdheighilte glactha acu i dtaobh na oibre atá siad tiomnaithe chuige. Tagann an liamhaint seo ó shraith léarscáileanna a théann siar 150 bliain atá atáirge a dhéanamh orthu agus na Sé Chontae fágtha amach astu. An rud is aistí faoi seo ná nach raibh críochdheighilt ann 150 bliain ó shin ach amháin ó 1922 ar aghaidh, mar sin níl aon bhunús ann le go bhfoilseofar léarscáileanna ar bhonn críocdheighilteach.

One sure sign of this government's increasing remoteness from Irish people was its reaction last week to the public outcry, as expressed on RTÉ and other stations, to the government's bungling of the statutory rape crisis. And the 'quality' (ie, middle class) media were, as usual, closer to the politicians than the people. According to more than one media report there was "quiet fury" among government politicians at the "highly irresponsible" coverage by Joe Duffy's Liveline show and the Gerry Ryan Show. Free article

Remembering the Past

8 June 2006

My name is Michael Gaughan, from Ballina I came. I saw my people suffering and swore to break their chains. I raised the flag in England, prepared to fight or die. Far away from Mayo beneath an Irish sky. Take me home to Mayo across the Irish Sea, Home to dear old Mayo where once I roamed so free. Take me home to Mayo there let my body lie, Home at last in Mayo beneath an Irish sky. This well known republican ballad was penned in honour of a young man from Ballina, County Mayo who was one of the hundreds of republicans imprisoned in 1974, the most vulnerable of whom were in English jails.
