As they say in Deansgrange "Me Ma would be turning in her grave if she heard you!"
Did you never hear of
"Take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of thenselves"
"Waste not , Want not,
"Have it yourself or do without"
"I wouldn't crawl to them for a crooked sixpence"


Was it not bet into you that you were to be sensible 24/7 and 365 ??? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I planted a clipping from a money tree in my Mothers space and it has survived and grown even through all of our past freezing seasons since. Mine here that the clipping came off was almost killed by frost last year because I didn't take it in, but her one grew stronger.
She's still around. ;)

I met a woman in the cemetery today who told me her car window had been smashed and her bag stolen she was parked up at the top part of the cemetery,now I know she shouldn't have left her bag on display but it just shows you how low the scumbags will go. :evil:

Happens regularly sadly, I stopped a while back when I saw two very upset elderly ladies at their car, a hatchback, the rear window had been smashed and their bags and other items stolen, they told me they had known of previous robberies and had taken care to put everything out of sight in the boot, this means there were some scumbags hiding and watching, better to put everything away before you leave home. Isn't it so sad our country has come to this, no value on human life and absolutely no regard for people's property, not even respect for dead, we're not even safe in a graveyard or even a church.

That's dreadful, I'm very nervous going to the Cemetary on my own, try to go when I know there will be a lot of people around, but Deansgrange is so big and when your up the back it's scary, that wall at the back should be built up to about 7ft it's such an easy escape route for anyone, also a good place to watch for innocent people on their own. :shock:

Visiting Deansgrange cemetery today I was again struck by how large sections of the cemetery are overgrown with the same kind of weed. Large tracts have succumbed to this ghastly weed. And it's not a new thing, it's been in evidence for years now.
Why is this not being tackled by the staff there, I wonder.

Yes Zirco, that weed is a pain in the butt :shock: I wonder what it is called, somebody planted it on a grave and it's just spread like wildfire especially at the upper end of the graveyard. I'm sick and tired trying to keep it at bay. They sprayed it last year and it died away for a while but came even bigger again :mrgreen:

Now, youse have me intrigued. I'll have to go up to the graveyard and check out this weed. They used to spray a lot in the old days but like everything else it has probably been "subcontracted out" nowadays....the dearer option.

Got a reply to my query to DLRCOCO re the graveyard weed, see below.

"Hi the weed thats currently rampant in the Cemetery is called mares/horses tail. It is impossible to eradicate and is extremely robust. The Council's weed control contractor will be in soon to spray it."

So now we know!

Thanks for that Zirco wuu 'tis a nuisance, Rocker, it's pretty bad up around the St.Peters plot but I've seen it worse, I think it's only starting its growing stage now for this year.

This is Horsetail, the weed infesting Deansgrange cemetery. It is very difficult to remove, having roots extending to seven feet!!! :shock:

Had occasion to go to the office in Deansgrange Cemetery today to get some information. I dealt with a really helpful gentleman who answered my questions, got the details I needed and imparted some really good advice to me. He certainly restored my faith in front desk service.

Thats great Keeper. I always got such helpful people there then a couple of years ago I think they thought they would make some money from the questioners and I was told that various information would cost 50 Euros. I can't remember the exact details but, I never sought their help again.

Well yesterday was my first visit to Shanganagh cemetery. What a well kept place, a credit to the workers.We got there ahead of the funeral as I had driven like the clappers !! The staff were putting the final touches to the grave preparation and me being me ...got chatting. Three lads all from the Boro with a wealth of local information. Wish I had had a longer chat. I was struck with the kind attitude with which they treated some elderly visitors asking about graves. A very positive experience. Dún Laoghaire Council should be proud to have such workers.

Gosh Holla, I never saw that. I wonder if they were WW2 refugees. It is strange that there are no names of the refugees. I know at WW2 there were names recorded of refugees. There was all sorts of police checks and signing on to keep an eye on the "aliens" as they were called. I never heard of Ireland taking in sick or injured refugees. I wonder if the office at the graveyard has any further details??

On another vein, during WW1 the Red Cross (from Switzerland, I think) got my badly injured grandfather out of Limburg an der Lahn Prisoner of War camp in Germany and saved his life.
