St. Patrick’s Day Parade:

On Saturday afternoon last, the 17th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade took place in the town. On a bitterly cold afternoon, with bits of snow falling, a smaller than usual crowd was present on Main Street to watch the Parade.  Although the Parade was smaller than other years, it proved to be an enjoyable event for young and old.  Mr. P.J. Barry—MC for the event—kept the attendance amused and informed about the various participants in the Parade. Two marching bands took part in the parade—the Corduff Pipe Band and St. Mary’s Brass and Reed Band, Kingscourt. Local sporting clubs, organisations and charities were well represented with some organisations making a very welcome return to the parade.

The Prize-winners on the day (which were independently judged) were, Best Float—Kingscourt Play Centre, Best Comedy Award went to ‘East Cavan Gaels Hurling Club’, the Best Dressed Shop Window went to ‘La Mirage’, Main Street and this year’s new award for Best Club and a prize of €500 went to Tierworker Irish Dancing Club.

THANK YOU to all the volunteers, entrepreneurs, voluntary and community groups, local businesses and anyone who helped out in this year’s Parade, without your help and enthusiasm, there would be no Parade! and despite the Artic weather and other events taking place, you all made it a very enjoyable event.

Moybologue Historical Society:

Dr. Gary Pennington, Professor Emeritus at the University of British Columbia in Canada is undertaking an ambitious research project called ‘Childhood Memories’. For several years they have been collecting stories from people around the world about their play experiences as children. The goal is to compile a broad database of information about children’s play that will be useful to people in many fields. Plans are to make the results of the study available in book form and on the internet. It is an ambitious effort to chronicle the play of youth over many generations and in different cultures.

While they have thousands of stories from people around the world, as yet they have very few from Ireland. To enhance their work, they would like to have many stories of childhood from the Emerald Isle, particularly from our seniors. They invite the Irish public to participate in the project. In addition to contributing to the study they believe that there are significant personal benefits to people who participate. They encourage respondents to make a copy of their completed form as part of a family history record. They have also found that once people have written their stories that small gatherings to share experiences are very rewarding.

Gary Pennington is from Canada with Mulligan Irish ancestors on his late mother’s side. One of his ancestors is buried in Moybologue Old Graveyard and he has attended several blessings of the graves ceremonies in recent years.

Bailieborough News. March 5th 2018. Matthew J. Cullen.

Storm Emma and ‘The Beast from the East’:

During the past week, both of the aforementioned events had an effect on the people living in the town and surrounding areas. From Tuesday of last week, biting cold temperatures were the norm and local shops and supermarkets were quickly sold out of basic foodstuffs. Snow fell on Tuesday night and continued to fall over the next few days with varying degrees of intensity. The local County Council crews were out gritting and salting the main roads around the town which helped traffic to keep moving. The worst of the snow fell on Thursday and Friday and most people heeded the warnings to stay indoors and avoid unnecessary travel. Some shops were open for a few hours on Friday afternoon but most stayed closed along with all the local schools. By Saturday morning, Main St. was passable, mainly due to the hard work of the council crews, shop owners and employees and the help of the local farming community and machinery operators who used their machinery to clear the main roads around the town. Most businesses were open for trade and by late Saturday evening, most people were able to replenish their larders with stocks of fresh food. On Sunday, a slight thaw set in but some religious services were cancelled or postponed due to the weather—most notably the Confirmation of local schoolchildren due to be held in St. Annes and which is rescheduled for Sunday next. Most other social events were either cancelled or deferred to a later date along with most sporting activities. At the time of writing (Monday morning), all the main roads are clear into the town and the thaw has well and truly set in, but there still remains a lot of snow on outlying roads and lanes which will take some time to remove.

So, hopefully, the worst storm over the past few years has now gone and life will be able to get back to normal for all the people of Bailieborough and its hinterland.

 

Confirmation:

Unfortunately, due to health and safety concerns Confirmation was postponed in Bailieborough on Sunday last.

Birdwatch Ireland is hosting a training session for surveying in Cavan. If you feel that it is something you might like to get involved in, please read the information and follow the link below to register.

The session is a joint CBS/I-WeBS training day. Its aim is to try and recruit some new survey participants and also to give existing surveyors a chance to come along and share experiences.

24th March (Sat): Farnham Arms Hotel, Cavan.

Both these surveys are long-term projects and very important tools for monitoring how our breeding birds and wetland sites are faring. As a certain level of identification skill is required to carry out the two surveys (and for CBS you would need to be pretty familiar with songs and calls of a good range of our common and widespread species) we suggest you have a look at these two lists below:

CBS list: (by sight & sound): Mistle Thrush, Blackcap, Redpoll, Willow Warbler, Sedge Warbler, Reed Bunting, Dunnock, Treecreeper. And by sight only: Merlin and Whinchat.

I-WeBS list: (by sight only): Wigeon, Teal, Tufted Duck, Goldeneye, Pochard, Knot, Dunlin, Bar-tailed Godwit, Black-tailed Godwit, Greenland White-fronted Goose.

If you could readily identify a minimum of 7 of these CBS or I-WeBS species in the field, then you should be OK. If you have trouble with them, then perhaps these sessions (and these surveys) will be a bit too advanced for you.

The Countryside Bird Survey (CBS) is carried out between 1st April and 30th June. It involves two early morning walks to count birds in a 1km square – the work is done by 9 AM!

The Irish Wetland Bird Survey (I-WeBS) is carried out from September to March. Estuaries, lakes, marshes and other wetlands across the country are counted once a month during the autumn, winter and early spring.

Each session will have the same format, starting at 10.00hrs with an entertaining slide show explaining how and why we do these surveys and there will be lots of tips on identification. After lunch (provided), we will have a short outdoor field trip to give you a chance to put theory into practice. We will be finished around 15.30hrs. The sessions are very relaxed and easy going, but also, we hope, informative. All instruction, tea, coffee, biscuits and lunch are free.

If you would like to take part in one of these training days, please register your interest as soon as possible at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Y995Z3P.    We will confirm your place on the session and supply you with directions for the venue and details of what to bring etc when you sign up.

Between 2004 and 2017, as Artistic Director of Livin’ Dred Theatre Company, he directed twenty-two productions. He has worked as an actor throughout the UK and Ireland on both stage and screen.

He was recently appointed Theatre Manager at The Ramor Theatre, Virginia, County Cavan.

Thanks to all who came to support Padraic, to Paddy McDonald, Cathaoirleach, Cavan County Council, to Peter Fallon of Gallery Press and to Padraic himself, who spoke with such passion about the play, his home town, the cast, and first and foremost, his family!! Also to Phil Gilbride (Barney) and Conor Sheridan (The Horse Munley) who gave a wonderful reading from the book.

‘The Night Joe Dolan’s Car Broke Down’ now takes its place in the printed form, which will immortalize this masterpiece!

No Through Road:

The new Traffic Barrier on the Galbolie Road side of St. Anne’s Church is now in operation. This will leave the area around the Church safer for pedestrians and visitors as traffic ignoring the signs and using the Avenue as a short-cut had increased steadily in recent years. Some of these cars drove across the front of the Church at high speed and there were a number of incidents, where people leaving the Church were almost knocked down. Students making their way from school were also at risk from passing traffic. The barriers will be open for all Funerals, weekend and Holy Day Masses. All Church users are reminded to use the designated parking spaces only and not to park in the unmarked areas of the Avenue.
