Poll an Eas in the sunshine…. by Tom

Poll an Eas in the sunshine by Tom

Poul an Eas … never more shall I see thee dark Poul an Eas
Shall I behold or hear thy flood,
For thy loved banks no more I’ll pass
Or wander by Killeany woods.It was there the cowslips were first seen,
To deck those sheltered banks so green.
For they loved banks no more I’ll pass
Or wander by Killeany woods.Turn then to where my youth was spend
Long beside my native home
Where Saxon rents and Saxon Laws
Compelled us here from there to roam
But if her sons united were,
There need not be an exile here
For grave should be the grabbers end.Written by: Kathleen Dillane

TLC6 in Killeaney Glin

TLC6

Margaret and Denis did a big clean up in Killaney and the surrounding area. Lots of bags of roadside litter collected. Well done to them. They do a litter pick regularly of their own area. It all helps to keep our town lands free of the scourge of fly tipping and litter louts.

Mairead Siobhan and Lisa (family unit) and their dog Bailey out on Good Friday doing their bit to clean up the roadsides of litter. Wouldn’t it be great if people brought home their wrappers, coffee cups and plastic bottles etc instead of flinging them out car/van/truck windows!!! Why is rubbish such a blight on our beautiful roadsides verges that are now coming into bloom 🌼🌾🌿🌺🌻. Great work ladies and what a beautiful blue sky!

Palm Sunday

Palm can be collected from the front porch at Glin church.

Mass will be celebrated for Palm Sunday at 11 am in Glin church. Blessed Palm will be available at the porch of the church after mass.

To facilitate the collection of Trócaire Boxes, Lenten Stations, Weekly Envelopes, Sacristan Collection and Easter Dues, there will be a priest present in Glin Church on Sunday 28th March (Palm Sunday) after 11am Mass.
These are very difficult and trying times. Fr. Tim, Fr. Austin and Canon Tony would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued generosity, kindness and support. It is very much appreciated. We look forward to the days ahead when we can once again meet in church for ceremonies and some semblance of normality.

Spring is in the air at the Glin Knights Walk…

Work continues on the Knights Walk! Walkers will see that new signage is presently being erected at the entrance and along the route. This is a work in progress and it is starting to take shape nicely. You will see direction signage as you arrive from both Church Street and the Dark Road. Each section of the route will have a unique plaque erected stating the name in English and Irish and also the elevation level of each area along the route. Mile buiochas to local gaelgeoir Aine Ni Riada who helped with the translation of the beautiful place names along the trail which includes Lissy Highe, Rook Hall Wood, Furry Hill Wood, The Racefield and the Beech Walk. Signage has also been erected to remind visitors of the Leave no Trace and the principles of outdoor ethics. The paths will be relaid with gravel when weather allows. We are looking forward to the exciting new project of a Pergola at the viewing platform. These works will start shortly. Attention has also been drawn to dog owners to keep their dogs on a lead and to please clean up after them. It is important to remember that the Knights Walk is located on the perimeter of a working farm. Stencil signs are also presently being laid (Limerick Co Co) on the streets and public spaces in the village. This is in an effort to inform the public of their obligation to clean up after their dogs. More stencils will be laid in the coming weeks. Beautiful Biodiversity Butterfly signage are also being erected in areas where butterflies are prevalent. It is both eye catching and informative and a great educational tool for young and old. The Glin Heritage Trails are a wonderful amenity, enjoyed by all. We are blessed to have these walks, especially during Covid lockdown, and we must treasure and look after them. Again thank you to everyone who supported the GoFundme, it is these generous contributions that allow all these kind of works to be completed. The fund is still open if you would like to contribute. All funds raised go towards the upkeep and new projects in our beautiful town of An Gleann.

Respect farm animals
Life

Spring has sprung on the Knights Walk. The cows are out after a long winter enjoying the sunshine ☀️. Please bear in mind that this a working farm and follow the following principles of outdoor ethics:

Respect social distancing

Respect farm animals and wildlife

Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a leash

Clean up after your dog

Do not wander off trail

Leave no trace – leave what you find

Signage will be erected in coming weeks outlining the outdoor ethics of the Heritage Trail Walks.

A message to all dog owners….

Willie Wall, our Tidy Towns volunteer, who is out everyday keeping the centre of Glin spotlessly clean, has a message for all dog owners.
“While I’m out and about cleaning and brushing and picking up litter, I see a lot of people out walking their dogs. Most are great and pick up the dog poo left after their pets. However there are a few who do not! Recently there have been incidents of dog fouling outside Brides Boutique and also Glin Chemist where the fouling was not cleared by the owners. It is an insult to the people of Glin when dog owners do not clean up after their pets. Dog poop is a health hazard and destroys peoples shoes, not to mention children’s buggies, and is unsightly. I am asking that dog owners take responsibility and do the courteous and respectful thing and take poo bags when they walk their dogs. Thank you.”
PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL AND CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR DOGS.

#thankyou #prideofplace #Angleann

A huge thank you to all who have donated to the fundraiser. All monies raised will go towards existing and new projects in Glin. The amount raised so far is testament to the pride of place people of Glin and beyond feel about An Gleann. So much has been accomplished and there’s more projects in the pipeline. In Covid times especially, we realise how lucky we are to live in such a scenic beautiful place, lots of great walks to get our exercise and fresh air. It’s a great place to raise children and the addition of the playground in the town park is a big bonus. There are lots of outdoor amenities, including the pier and the tennis court and not many places can boast of such facilities. Thank you again for your donations, it is very much appreciated, especially as all fundraising has been severely affected by the Covid restrictions. The Gofundme page is still live for anyone who would still like to contribute! Thank you all and stay safe.

Glin Tidy Towns / Litter Picking.

Litter! 😒

As we are out on our walks inside the 5k limit in Glin, it is a shame to see litter discarded on our road sides and verges. The council recently cleared out drains on some of the road verges, and this has unearthed and highlighted the extent of the littering. Unfortunately masks are the new litter bug bear! Tidy Towns volunteers have already filled numerous bags in recent weeks, as they go about their daily walks. We have had requests from individuals looking for litter pickers, but unfortunately all the pickers were given out at the last Team Limerick Clean Up. We are asking if anyone has pickers that they will not be using, could you drop them back to Marie Fitzgerald. They can be left inside the garden wall. If you are litter picking, please always wear gloves and a vis vest. Will there ever come a time when litter will be a thing of the past. Hopefully our younger generation who have great knowledge about caring for the planet, will set the way, and make it a better place for us all. Stay safe and thank you in advance to all the volunteers in Glin who help keep it clean.

Campaign to leave Christmas lights on!

#liftspirits #leavethelightson

The Christmas Trees in Glin square and Glin Town Park will be left lighting for the month of January to bring some cheer in these strange times. It would be lovely if outside lights in homes and businesses could also be left to sparkle during January 🎇⭐️💫🌟
It is lovely to see the town and park lit up and bright once twilight comes. By the end of January the evenings will have got longer and hopefully our spirits will have lifted also as we battle to overthrow the dreaded virus. #goodvibes #liftyourmood #KeepItLit #leavethelightson

Glin GAA AGM.

Due to the current restrictions, the annual AGM took place online this year before Christmas. There were many positives for us as a club going forward with our intermediate side making great progress this year to reach the County quarter final and many new fresh faces joined the panel. With a trojan effort this coming year and a bit of luck we have every chance of challenging for honours this summer. All outgoing club officers were re-elected for the coming year with one personnel change. Nollaig Hogan steps down as Club Treasurer after a very successful period looking after our finances. We really appreciate the wonderful work she has done in the role and we wish her well. Jack Dunne will be taking over as Treasurer on a interim basis until a permanent successor is elected.It was also decided at the AGM to resurrect the Junior B team once more after a few years in the wilderness. Up to about 5 years ago, we were very competitive at this grade and with the abundance of young talent that has come through recently at U21 level plus a few old dogs for the hard road, we are hopeful of entering both the West Junior B League and Championship. More details regarding the management team, fixtures etc. will follow over the next while.Finally, we’d like to wish all our supporters and friends a peaceful and safe New Year.

Feast of the Epiphany.. Wednesday 10am… churchservices.tv/glin

Credit: Redemptorist Communications.

#Epiphany #welcome 2021

The Wise Men are on their way!
Chalking the doors for Epiphany…have your chalk ready for Wednesday …
There is a custom of blessing homes on the Feast of the Epiphany (January 6) when the family gather to ask God’s blessing on their home and family life. It is an invitation for Jesus to be a daily guest in our home, our comings and goings, our conversations, our work and play, our joys and sorrows.

Instructions for Blessing the Home
Using the blessed chalk mark the lintel of your front door as follows:
20 + C + M + B + 21 saying:
The three Wise Men, Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar followed the star of
God’s Son who became human two thousand and twentyone years ago.
May Christ bless our home and remain with us throughout the new year. Amen.
Then say the following prayer:
Visit, O blessed Lord, this home with the gladness of your presence. Bless all who live or visit here with the gift of your love; and grant that we may manifest your love to each other and to all whose lives we touch. May we grow in grace and in the knowledge and love of you; guide, comfort, and strengthen us in peace, O Jesus Christ, now and for ever. Amen.

“Chalking the door” is a way to celebrate and physically mark the occasion of the Epiphany and God’s blessing of our lives and home. With time the chalk will fade. As it does we let the meaning of the written symbols sink into the depths of our hearts and be manifest in our words and actions.
