My favourite memory from childhood was the long Summer days cycling to the ‘Warren’ with our clubs across the handle bars to go playing pitch & putt, swimming and fooling around on the dunes with my friends. Is it just me or were the Summer days sunnier and longer when I was younger. Summer days sure look better in the rear view mirror ! 

Its great to see that today’s youth are still doing the exact same thing. The best of memories.’

My favourite memory from childhood – 

Having grown up on a farm, there was never a dull moment. The highlight of the year was always the treshing. Eight to ten neighbours would come and help and we looked forward to a half day from school. Of course we would run most of the two and a half miles home that day. Our job was to help fill the bags with grain. When the hard work was finally complete, we all proceeded inside for food. A bottle of Guinness and spinning of yarns were just rewards for the men who had worked tirelessly. We would also enjoy playing in the chaff with our friends afterwards.’

My favourite saying – 

It is what it is!’

‘Life can throw many things at you, good and not so good, and you can either fight it or accept it! fighting or ignoring it gets you nowhere, you have to embrace the fact that this is your life’s journey!’

Favourite quote – ‘Don’t think about things too much’.

Great celebrations last night at the launch of the ‘Meet the Neighbours – People of Rosscarbery Exhibition’ at the Celtic Ross Hotel as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations. Helen Wycherley, Neil Grant and Sherna Malone hosted the evening.

The star of the night was Niall Flavin who is always smiling and is so full of warmth and happiness, he is deeply loved and cherished by all the community of Rosscarbery.

The exhibition is a celebration of the hotels connection with the local community and how their success is based on that bond. Everybody cares and looks out for each other and this was lovely to see last night as both the locals and the hotel celebrated together as one.
