Doctor Galligan Weekend

Sunday, March 29th, 2009

All these people were at the unveiling of the stone memorial to Doctor Galligan here in Kilnaleck today. It rained, so I’ll go up another day and get a photo of the stone itself. Here it is. A lot of them came down here to the bar for lunch afterwards and there was a good session with kids playing some great music.

Here’s my godson Aaron Smith, Patrick and Muriel’s son. He was one year old yesterday. Walking already. God I seem to be taking an awful lot of photos these days. You’d think think I’d be better at it!

Dr Galligan Weekend

Saturday, March 28th, 2009

This weekend the Comhaltas Ceolteoiri Eireann have organised a memorial weekend for Doctor Brian Galligan, from Kilnaleck, one of the founding members of the organisation and a great patron of Irish music and culture. Last night the weekend was launched in The Farnham Arms Hotel in Cavan; tonight there’s a big traditional Irish Concert in Crover House Hotel; and tomorrow there’s mass here in Kilnaleck at 11 o’clock, unveiling of a memorial stone at 2 o’clock, and great trad sessions in every pub in the town after that.

Lots of Dr Galligan’s family were in the Farnham last night; here’s three generations – his son Seamus, grandson Brian and great-grandson Darragh (commonly known as Brian Doc, Seamus Doc and Darragh Doc ;-) )

Pyjama Day

Saturday, March 28th, 2009

Yesterday was the National Children’s Nursery Association Pyjama Day in aid of the Make A Wish Foundation. Pre-school kids and their teachers (or keepers!) all over the country showed up to school in their pyjamas. Teresa Leddy from Ardleny has a creche in Cathedral View, Cavan and here they all are. This photo was on the front page of the Anglo Celt, our local paper.

Grandchildren

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

My mother wanted a photo of all her grandchildren together so she wouldn’t have to cover her house with individual photos of them, so I took it on Sunday while we were all in Mullahoran for Oisin’s Confirmation
