Peg’s Poem – An Cailín Bán 👩

The Cailin Bán – September 2019
In memory of Ellen Hanley who was murdered in 1819

It started with a rumour
That John Anthony had a dream
To bring the Cailin Bán to life
Down by the Shannon stream.
And to make it even grander
And ensure it was the best
He had the inspiration
To include Dominic West.

And so the rumour blossomed
And soon grew big and strong
When Vicar Joe and Eleanor
Brought a script along.
The next task was not so easy
To find people for each role
But they trusted in the talent found
From Loughill to Listowel.

And so the summer bore some fruit
As each one learned their part
And delivered lines with passion
Getting serious from the start.
Meanwhile some eager ladies
Were making strides backstage
Sourcing props and costumes
Not expecting any wage.

So when September came around
And the opening night in sight
Many people had bought tickets
So as not to miss this night.
And they were not disappointed
As this outstanding crew
Through singing, dancing, acting
Made John A’s dream came true.

Credit due to all the locals
And Glin Development committee
For making this a memorable event
Which will go down in history.
We look forward to the time when
Tourist will flock to see
The Knight of Glin Interpretative Centre
At the back of the Library.

Last⚽️Man💰Standing – check🔍your📝selection

We have had another great uptake on the eleventh edition of the Glin Rovers Last Man Standing. Glin Rovers are doing something right as more than 270 punters have joined again for the competition!!!

A big thanks to all the punters and a huge thanks to all the sellers, they put in great work to ensure this thing keeps running as successfully as it does.

This week all the big money is on Liverpool. 136 punters are hoping that they can continue their recent form. 46 are on Man City and 43 are on Spurs. The rest are scattered among the more ‘interesting’ selections.

Please check out this week’s selections at https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-YyhYrcK8cUAc_PSXqDt3P2SxJSGNqZ4 The first week is always a bit hectic getting selections in and, though we try our best, sometimes mistakes can be made. Check out your selection and make sure it’s the one you gave.

Cailin Ban Review⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

THE MEN in the audience were outnumbered four or five to one but no matter. For most of the female audience gathered to see The Colleen Bawn at Glin Castle,  only one man mattered, film-star Dominic West. 

And they weren’t disappointed. With his opening “Dia dhaoibh”, he had the gathering in the palm of his hand. 

Dressed in period costume, and looking rakishly handsome, Dominic, star of The Affair, The Wire, Les Misérables, took on the role of the 24th Knight of Glin, a man “regarded with great affection in the area” and known locally as Ridire na mBan, the Ladies’ Knight. The women cheered at that. 

But there the ribald humour ended. 

As narrator of the tragic story of Ellen Hanly, Dominic played it straight in what was a very straight-forward and sensitive retelling of the Colleen Bawn, 200 years to the day after her body was washed up on the Clare coast. 

Using music and dance to heighten the drama, the story unfolded in cameo scenes, culminating in stirring courtroom scenes where Master John Scanlon, the man who seduced the innocent Ellen, and his man servant Stephen Sullivan who carried out the murder, were condemned to death.

The performance, which runs before another capacity crowd again this evening, was intended to mark the 200th anniversary of this “compelling story of romance, betrayal and murder.”

It is, Dominic West commented, a tragic romance which has captivated imaginations all over the world for two centuries. 

“The Cailín Bán, the pure innocent girl, exploited and murdered by the loathsome John Scanlon, is central to the mythology of this area, for it was right her in Glin that she was last seen alive,” he said. 

“My wife’s forebear, the 24th Knight of Glin, John Fraunceis Fitzgerald, was the magistrate who sent Scanlon to the gallows and I’m extremely proud to be playing him in this exciting new production by the Abha Bhán and Glin Players.”

When the final bows had been taken, Dominic West paid tribute to the cast and crew who had made it possible. “You are the best audience,” he said to cheers.

Still in costume, he morphed into  the showman, pulling the winning tickets for the raffle. And although the raffle came with valuable prizes, it was undoubtedly the kiss on the cheek bestowed on each winner that was the real prize for all the winners. Imagine, Dominic mused, there was no male winner. 

Glin Development Association is the overall winner as it stands to raise tens of thousands of euro from the venture which will help develop a visitor centre in the village.

Glin Castle Open Day – reusable cups.

Last Sunday at the Glin Castle Open Day we trialled using environmentally friendly Plastic Cups. (See image). Glin Development and Tidy Towns are aiming to reduce waste and be as environmentally efficient where possible. The cups were a great success and we will use them again for future events. Unfortunately and as we assume unintentionally, quite a few of these cups were taken away by visitors on the day. We would be delighted if they could be returned. We know this wasn’t done intentionally, and if they could be returned to Paddy Hogan’s Shop Glin, we would be very grateful 😊.

Thank you from Fr. Crawford to Glin Parish Community: The Golden Jubilee Mass was a wonderful experience.  It was an impressive Liturgy from start to finish and touched the hearts and minds of everybody.  I do want to say “Thank You” to the Pastoral Council members who organised the day’s events and designed in detail the various elements of the Liturgy.  The Organist & Choir – which included a big contingent of pupils and teachers from the Parish Schools – excelled themselves.  The Readers, Mass Servers and Soloist, Emelia Costello – deserve special mention.  The “Welcoming Group” extended a Cead Mile Failte to all the guests and visitors from other Parishes on behalf of the People of Glin.  Later we were all treated to a first class meal in Ceol Corbrai Community Hall.  It was an impressive performance and enjoyed by all.  Thanks to the Comhaltas Group who created a lovely atmosphere.  On behalf of my family members who were present I wish to thank you sincerely for a Day to Remember.  My congratulations to one and all.  Go raibh mile maith agaibh.  From Fr. Tom Crawford.

Routes are either 80k or 110k – are you up for the challenge?  This years the fundraising is in aid of St. Fergus NS carpark/setdown area.  

Glin Baby & Toddler Group: The toddler group has now closed for the summer holidays.  Thank you to everyone that came every week and especially to all the mums that took it in turns to open the group each week.  Without the continued support of those attending we would not be able to operate.  There is a new WhatsApp Group set up, if you wish to have your name added to this group please send a message to the Glin Baby & Toddler Group Facebook page with your mobile number and you will be added.  Wishing everyone a wonderful summer holiday and a special mention to those smaller folk that have now moved onto preschool, we wish you all the very best for your futures.  You will be missed.  Stay safe and see you in September.

Sunday the 23rd June 2019 will remain a memorable day for the parish of Glin for years to come.  

Glin Parish Pastoral Council hosted a wonderful celebration for the Jubilee starting with mass at 1 pm and then an evening of food, music and song in the community hall, Ceol Corbrai.  Mass was celebrated by Fr. Tom Crawford , Canon O’Keeffe, Fr. Tim Curtin, Fr Austin McNamara, and Fr. Sean O’Longaigh, in the presence of his brothers John, Andrew, Pat, & Liam & his sisters Catherine, Maura (Meade) Cork, Lena (Fox) Mitchelstown, and their extended families. Wonderful uplifting music  was provided by  our local Comhaltas group, and the Glin choir accompanied by organist,  Anne Horan.  The choir were joined by the children from both St. Fergus and Ballyguiltenane National Schools, and the wonderful angelic voice of local girl, Emelia Costello.  The church looked beautiful with the magnificent flower displays and twinkling lighted candles.  After mass the congregation moved up to Ceol Corbrai to continue the celebrations.  The Glin Mens Shed were on hand to direct parking and had worked hard to get the hall in ship shape for the event. A beautiful buffet was served which was supplied by James Stack of Wallace’s Bar and Restaurant, Glin.  James and his staff had it all under control and the food was delicious and plentiful.  Children’s food was provided by Shakeel of our local Glin Grub.  

The music, song and dance continued after eating and the Comhaltas once again entertained with wonderful Irish music and singers and dancers provided great entertainment.  Fr. Crawford cut his beautifully crafted cake and Marie McKenna, Chairperson of the Pastoral Council, made a presentation on behalf of the Businesses, clubs, schools and individuals of Glin to Fr. Crawford.   Thank you to everyone who came to the Jubilee on Sunday, it is a community coming together that puts energy and joy into such an occasion.  Glin Parish Pastoral Council would also like to thank everyone who helped out in whatever capacity to make the day the success that it turned out to be.  We thank Fr. Crawford for his devoted service and commitment to the priesthood for the last 50 years and we wish him health and happiness for his years ahead.  Thank you Fr. Crawford from Glin Parish Pastoral Council and all your parishioners in Glin. 

Glin Pier:  The Lifeguards will return to duty at Glin Pier on Monday, July 1 for the summer season. We thank Limerick Co. Council for providing this invaluable service. 

Wallace’s Bar Closed:   The bar officially closed on June 23. A statement released by proprietors James and Dorothy Stack read ” It’s with a heavy heart we have made the decision to close Wallace’s bar on Sunday 23rd of June. We would like to thank all our regular customers our family friends and especially our staff. Unfortunately with consistent decrease in business, drink driving laws and the increase in vat on food we can no longer keep going. Again we would like to personally thank our wonderful staff who we consider friends now, without them we would be closed a long time ago”   This is yet another blow to the village with Wallace’s Bar making it 3 businesses since January 2019 to close.  We wish James, Dorothy and their young family all the very best with their future endeavours and sincerely thank both them and their staff for the wonderful food, drink, music and many happy memories made within the premises over the past couple years.

Glin Tidy Towns Adjudication.

Thank you to all our TT volunteers who have helped out to date and who continue on a weekly basis to volunteer one hour of their time on Wednesday’s and Saturday’s.

The Adjudication for 2019 will commence on Saturday June 8th and will run up to Saturday August 4th. TidyTowns Adjudicators will visit Glin to see our hard work at any point throughout that period. Glin TT are delighted at how well Glin is looking and hopefully we can keep up this momentum. Lots of properties are being painted and beautiful window boxes are going on display. Thank you to everyone in Glin and the ‘adopt a patch’ is working well. If home/business owners keep an eye on their own properties, this will help enormously. We are limited with the number of volunteers and it’s not possible to cover all the areas in Glin.

Best of luck to Glin this summer for the Tidy Towns Awards. 🌸🌼🌚🌹🌷🌺
