Cumann Gaelach na hEaglaise – 100 bliain

2 June 2014

Ba mhór an onóir dom a bheith páirteach mar ionadaí an Ard Mhéara agus Comhairle Bhaile Átha Cliath ag ceiliúradh céad bliain ag Cumann Gaelach na hEaglaise, eagras Gaeilge Eaglais na hÉireann. Ar an 29 Aibreán a bhí an seirbhís speisialta in Eaglais Naomh Áine i Sráid Dawson agus ag fáiltiú i Halla Molesworth ina dhiaidh sin. Bunaíodh an Cumann ar an lá sin i 1914 agus i measc siúd a thacaigh leis bhí Ruairi Mac Éasmainn (Roger Casement). Luaigh mé sin i mo chuid focail ar an ócáid, ag cur i gcuimhne don lucht éisteachta go ndúirt Mac Éasmainn gurb ionann an náisíun agus abhainn mór ina théann go leor sruthanna éagsúla. Free article

From Croker to Old Trafford

2 June 2014

AN AMERICAN RESEARCHER, working on a thesis about Patrick Kavanagh, landed up one day in Inniskeen in County Monaghan to interview locals who had known the great poet before he had become well-known. One of those who he asked his opinion of described Kavanagh as a “horrid eejit”. That was because Kavanagh, who had been the Inniskeen senior football goalkeeper for some years, had apparently deserted his post during an important championship match to buy himself an ice cream.
