INTERNMENT In the early hours of August 9th, 1971, more than 300 men were dragged from their beds by British Crown forces and marched off without trial, to concentration camps. Many were dressed only in pyjamas; some were barefoot; none were informed of their destination. Anxious wives and mothers asking when they could see their menfolk again, were given unprintable answers by the British soldiers. The ever smiling, then Prime Minister, Brian Faulkner, formally announced internment. Rioting followed. My midnight, 12 lay dead. On Wednesday the death toll stood at 17; by Saturday 22 had died. The numbers interned soon rose to over 600. For the sixth time since the establishment of Stormont, the Special Powers Act had been invoked to intern Republicans.

“LISTOWEL is a great place for a fleadh,” announced one Scottish visitor last weekend on this his first visit to Ireland. It is an experience that will remain in his memory for a long, long time — and who could blame that Scotsman?;

This year’s All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil attracted over 2,000 musicians to the north Kerry town and another 20,000 visitors and they certainly got value for money. And they came from the four corners of Ireland, from Britain, Europe, Australia and the United States — all united in a harmonious quest

for music.

The fleadh has now been an annual event for 30 years since Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann was founded in 1951. One of its major aims was to create a closer bond among all lovers of Irish music and some of its particular objectives to restore the playing of harp and uileann pipes. Its  success  has  been  formidable, as any fleadh visitor will testify.

There are two platforms for the musicians, who ranged from eight to eighty years old — one formal, the other anything but.

The formal competitions are divided into 35 different categories and four age groups. Their aim is to find the All-Ireland champion in each of these categories be it the fiddle, concert flute, harp, bodhran, banjo or melodian.

The event is also a barometer of Listowel — non-stop music of musical standards. And those standards were amazingly high last weekend, especially among the younger performers whose agility on their instruments provided an unending source of wonderment for the gathered multitudes.

But it was away from the strict area of competition that most of the musicians came into their own.

Hundreds of impromptu sessions were to be found in the streets, pubs and hotels of Listowel. Saturday’s weather was very kind to the musicians apart from the odd shower of rain, which quite considerately held off its force until after one o’clock in the morning, when publicans finally ushered people in various states of euphoria out into the darkness.

But even the rain could not stop the crack. Musicians, soaked inside and out, kept the entertainment going with enthusiasts

WARMING: White wispy trails across the blue sky on a sunny day are one of the few attractive features of air travel. But they have a darker side, especially at night. For the condensation trails produced by the exhaust from aircraft engines are creating an often-invisible thermal blanket of cloud across the planet. Though lasting for only a short time, these “contrails” have a daily impact on atmospheric temperatures that is greater than that from the accumulated carbon emissions from all aircraft since the Wright Brothers first took to the skies more than a century ago.


UK ornamentals were worth £1.4 billion in 2020, a decrease of 1.2%

CANCER: “Cancer doesn’t discriminate between red or blue, it doesn’t care if you’re a Republican or a Democrat,” Biden said in a speech Monday afternoon at the John F.

POPE: By Courtney Mares

Vatican, 13 September, 2022 / (ACI Africa).

Pope Francis arrived in Kazakhstan Tuesday urging dialogue and peace in the face of Russia’s “senseless and tragic war” in Ukraine.

In a speech to Kazakh civil authorities and diplomats in the capital city of Nur-Sultan on Sept. 13, the pope said he wanted to “echo the plea of all those who cry out for peace.”

“I have come here as a pilgrim of peace, seeking dialogue and unity. Our world urgently needs peace: it needs to recover harmony,” Pope Francis said from the stage of the Qazaq Concert Hall.–Axf_N6V25Kzef91AXe5Yt2QmnzURAFSrslkbnI-U4706ZmwWCQ3VvDOJZkPGeU-U_OyZIsBlaYkZ0TMyZgQU75R3Jiw&utm_content=225972779&utm_source=hs_email
