As Gaeilge #2

A chairde. Mícheal anseo.
Táim ag tnúth go mór leis an gceoldrama Sisters Act ar an satharn seo chugainn an triú lá fichead de mhí na samhna.
Chonaic mé an scannán leis an ainm céanna ar an teilifís cúpla uair agus thaitin sé go mór liom. Nuair a chuala mé go raibh muintir cheolmhar Mhainistir na Búille á chur ar an stáitse, isteach liom go dtí Oifig Úna Bhán agus cheannaigh mé ticéad lena aghaidh. Sin coicís ó shoin agus bhí iontas an domhain orm go raibh leath de na suíocháin líonta cheana féin. Ar ndóigh beidh an Ceoldrama seo ar siúl i Halla Naomh Sheosamh ón gceadaoin an 20ú lá go dtí an satharn an 23úlá.
Mura bhfuil ticéad agat cheana féin, ná lig do mhaidí le sruth, faigh ceann gan mhoill.
IS CEOLDRAMA AR LEITH É SEO.
SIán go fóill.

The Crescent Bye Laws – no apparent progress!

Map

July 2019: “Following several years of lobbying (and pleading), Roscommon Co Councillors passed the new bye laws for trading on the Crescent and other site in the county. Roscommon councillors voted by a majority of 15 to 2 to bring in casual trading laws for the county after the issue was first mooted more than a decade ago. The bye laws will apply to all towns in the county and cover issues like goods that may be traded, designated trading areas and trading times, insurance requirements and parking of vehicles.”
October 2019: Surprise, Surprise! Despite the passing of the bye laws Roscommon CoCo, Boyle’s Chamber of Commerce and Town Team do not appear to have actioned them and called for policing them
