April & May Senior Room

Easter 2020 and May

Dear all,

I hope you had a very happy Easter (albeit a very different one than normal) and had a lot of fun. I did a “Where’s Wally” Virtual Easter hunt around Clonakilty. As ye all know I had the outfit already! Here is a picture of myself and my Niece Lauren – A lot of people from the town got involved and it felt like a real Easter egg hunt(well sort of).

Poetry day is Thursday the 30th of April 2020..Poetry and music elevate the heart and soul. It can take you to a magical place..Read and re-read and you will be rewarded. Did you hear this lady wrote a poem about her poor sister who passed away due to the Corona virus? paste link into google https://www.irishtimes.com/news/social-affairs/my-sister-is-not-a-statistic-coronavirus-victim-from-mayo-remembered-in-a-poem-1.4228879 Very sad..I know but so beautiful too. All in a poem, the ultimate tribute to her sister.

Shine your light by Paula Meehan https://www.rte.ie/culture/2020/0407/1129101-shineyourlight-spoken-word-from-paula-meehan-easter-2020/ We lit a candle Saturday night, like lots of you in appreciation for all the amazing, selfless work the health service are doing and for all the people who are sick, those who have lost their lives and the loved ones who remain, reminding us that love and hope are always with us.

Try a poem a day…revising poems we did already, or if there is any new poem you come across you might send me a picture. Could you learn one of two (off my heart) and hopefully dramatise some of them like; The Sea (by E.A Adams)……The Sparkling SEAAAA! I’ll hear them all soon, hopefully. I have attached a list of 10 very special poems that we have done over the past 2 years.

TG 4 https://www.cula4.com/en/shows/cula4-ar-scoil/ is starting Gaeilge lessons at 10am and maybe this would be very worthwhile along with reading stories from Beal Beo 5 and the hub at 11am on RTE
