'Lá Bealtaine' which we celebrated yesterday has deep roots in our Irish culutre. Many customs associated with this day have died out during the years. One of these was the blessing of cattle on farms. Farmers walked the boundary of their farm starting east and then walked south and all around. As he/she went they blessed cattle in each field. It's great to see old Irish customs, traditions & blessings being nurtured and given new life again.

We all need our friends and particularly during these difficult times. We can't meet up with our friends in the way we used to before. This has been difficult for so many. But we do hope that contact with our friends will return to more normal as we head into the summer months. If we took our friends for granted before the Covid pandemic, then we will forever treasure our close friends from here on. We thank our friends for everything they do for us. If what you do as a friend seems small to you, it means the world to us.

The A-Z alphabet of friendship

A friend Accepts you as you are
Believes in you
Calls you just to say hello
Doesn't give up on you
Envisions the whole of you (even the unfinished parts)
Forgives your mistakes
Gives unconditionally
Helps you
Invites you over
Jokes with you and has a sense of humour
Keeps you close at heart
Loves you for who you are
Makes a difference in your life
Never judges
Offers support
Prays for you
Quietens your fears
Raises your spirits
Says nice things about you
Tells you the truth when you need to hear it
Understands you
Values you
Walks beside you
Xplains things you don't understand
Yells (gently!) when you won't listen
Zaps you back to reality.
