make sure it is after 2.00.p.m. He feels visitors are good for his Dad, the carers
are at the house in the mornings hence the after 2.00.p.m.


Good to hear that Sinead, I often ask friends how he is doing. I don't get over that way very much now, but always thinking of Grammer. I asked my friend to drop in a card I got for him awhile ago wishing him well and saying all on the site were thinking of him. I hope he got it. :(

I must offer my best wishes to Grammer and hope that he gets well soon to enjoy a peaceful and restful Christmas. I don't know the gentleman but He should be given a computer as a present to get back into the chats.....if doesn't have one!

It just dawned on me yesterday 6th January that we never celebrated nollaig na mban in the Rock. When I went to work it was mostly with people from different parts of the country and they spoke about all the "old traditions", like the "wran boys", "first footing", "patterns/stations" and nollaig na mban...a mixture of church and pagan celebrations.

Could it be that we over on this suburb of the city were too angelicised that we ditched all the old traditions and wanted to blend in?

I do remember Corpus Christie processions...when we would march as a church and play hymns over loud speakers all over the town. But the rest of the time we just assimilated and didn't act too Irish.

What do you think?? Is it because we lost our native tongue and didn't have the words for the old celebrations?? just wondering???

Just beware folks.people have been receiving calls again from
or any numers starting
One ring & hang up
if youcall back they can copy your contact list in3 secs. If you have bank or credit card details on your phone
they can copy that also.
+375 is from Belarus
+371 =Latvia
+370= Vilnius
Don't answer or call back
Also don't Press hash 90 or hash 09 on your mobile if asked by a caller. Its seemingly a new trick to access your SIM card
Make calls at you expense and frame you as a criminal.

Thanks Jabra ! I got a few calls from a couple of those numbers, when I don't recognise a number I don't answer, I check the prefixes on Google to see country of origin and it's usually one of the countries on your list.

Thanks for the warning, I'll watch out for odd numbers trying to contact me.
Got a 'pushing' email to-day, I must say it did look good but I just deleted it.

I got two of those telephone calls to-day!

Folks, this morning I visited Epic Ireland which is housed in what I knew as Stack A (bonded warehouse) and is now called CHQ Building. It is a fantastic museum all about our Emigrants. If you take the bus/dart to Pearse Station walk down Lombard Street and across the river and you are there. Well worth a visit, I will be back.
