The confraternity photo is still doing the rounds and bringing back many happy memories. One blog follower shared this via email:
Regarding the Confraternity and the Sodality; these were gone or on the way out when I was a nipper. I do remember a crude put-down that was used in those days against someone that was, in the common perception, 'ró-mhór leis an gcléir,' and involved in every religious event and occasion- this put-down was as follows: 'Jaysus, that fellow is stuck in everything! He'd be in the Children of Mary as well, if they could find a knickers big enough for him!'
We see the mote in our brother's eye…….

West Cork is one of the most beautiful parts of the country. It is such a pity that someone thought it was a good idea to greet visitors with this insulting and unwelcoming sign.
East Cork is Beautiful too
Recently I visited Ballycotton with my family and we walked the cliff walk. The scenery is absolutely stunning.
My little Aisling is taking a leaf out of Nana's book and capturing the memories.
