A Chairde, Mícheál anseo.

Chuaigh mé isteach i siopa Sheerins, Sráid Phadraig Dé Sathairn seo caite. Bhí rud eigin ag teastáil uaim. Is breá liom an siopa seo mar cuireann sé i gcuimhne dom mar a bhíodh siopaí le linn m’óige.
Cé nach siopa mór é tá sé lán d’eadaí deasa. Tá eadaí do mhná, a’fhir, do pháistí agus do leanaí ann. Tá siad ar fad go hálainn. Dioltar éide scoile ann freisin.
D’inis Geraldine, bean an tsiopa anois,  gurbh í a máthair Lily a d’oscail an siopa seo sa bhliain 1934 agus go bhfuil  sé i seilbh mhuintir Sheerin ó shoin. Cabhraíonn a híníon Majella léi i rith an tsamhraidh nuair a bhíonn an siopa gnóthach. Is breá le Geraldine na giotaí Gaeilge seo a léamh. Slán go fóill.

As Gaeilge – A Chairde, Mícheál anseo.

Ag tús na seachtaine seo bhuail mé le John Murphy sa bhliain Open Table. Tá sean aithne agam ar John le fada agus d’inis sé scéal a bheatha dom.
Rugadh agus tógadh John i mBaile Átha Cliath. Chaith sé ocht mbliana déag ina shaighdiúr singil sa chéad Chathlán i nDún Mhaoilíosa i nGaillimh. Gaeilge amháin a d’úsáid an Chathlán seo.
Bhuail sé le Maura, an bhean a phós sé sa bhliain 1967 agus tá siad ina gcónaí i Mainistir na Búille ó shin.
Bhí sé ar dhuine de na saighdiúirí Éireannacha a d’fhreastal sa Chongo mar chuid den Fhórsa Síochána na Náisiúin Aontaithe sa bhliain 1960. Chonaic sé rudaí uafásacha ag tarlú san áit sin. Bhí an t-ádh leis teacht abhaile slán. Fad saoil John.

There are two AA meetings held in Boyle every week for those struggling with alcohol use in their lives.

This is the time of year when people can realise that alcohol is playing too big a part in their lives but feel unable to do anything about it.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.

A Chairde, Mícheál anseo.

Cuirimis fáilte roimh an mbliain nua. Tá súil agam go mbeidh 2020 ina bliain rathúil agaibh go léir.
Le linn na Nollag bhí a lán daoine  ag freastal  ar Aifreann nó ar sheirbhísí eaglasta sa séipéal áitiúil. An Séipéal. Tháinig an focal sin ón Fhraincís fadó fadó. Teach an Phobail a thugtaí ar an séipéal áitiúil nuair a bhí mise óg. Bhí an t- ainm sin ciallmhar i mo thuairimse mar gurbh ann a thagadh an pobal áitiúil le chéile uair sa tseachtain, an áit a mbuaileadh cairde agus gaolta le chéile agus is ann a chloistí nuacht an cheantair. Is ann freisin a ndéantaí ceiliúradh  baistí,  póstaí agus  socraidí. B’fheidir go raibh ciall leis an teideal  Teach an Phobail.

Tá súil agam go raibh Nollaig shuaimhneach agus bheannaithe agaibh go léir.
Tháinig Daidí na Nollag i mbliana arís- chuala mé é sin ar nuacht R T É – agus thug sé féiríní do pháistí na tíre.
Tháinig daoine muinteartha abhaile go dtí a dtuismitheoirí nó go dtí a gcairde ag iompar bronntanaisí agus dea- mhéine.
Bhí ceiliúradh agus am só i ngach teach ar bhealach amháin nó ar bhealach eile.
Níor tháinig aon sneachta. Ní raibh Nollaig bhán againn ach ní raibh an aimsir go dona.
Tríd is tríd, dar liomsa, bhí Nollaig mhaith againn an taobh seo tire buiochas le Dia.

Boyle Employment

My school book “Outline Geography of Ireland” defined Boyle as a Thriving Market Town. When I read that the smaller town, Drumshanbo in Co Leitrim is to get a second Food Hub with 50 employed, I wonder whether Boyle lives up to its “Thriving Market Town” definition. It has been a long time since we heard of another 50 job opportunities announcement for the “Town We Love So Well”. Certainly, we have some great traders and businesses here in Boyle, but a friend suggested to me recently “The (alleged) Curse of St. Patrick said that Boyle would never prosper”. Maybe the time has come to call on St. Patrick to lift the curse, and allow us to move to greater heights !!

Know Your Rights: Patient Advocacy Service

Question: I was in hospital recently and I was not happy with my experience there. When I complained to the nurse in charge I wasn’t satisfied with the response. How can I take my complaint further?

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 sites 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 or called for policing them
