BINGO Unfortunately we seem to be far from getting back to Bingo. I am getting lots of people contacting me but right now we are not allowed to even think about it. Believe me I miss it just as much as you and I hope you are all keeping well but safety is top priority right now.

CHURCH REOPENING It is good to see the doors open again and it must be a relief to Fr. Kevin and his team who did an incredible job. I’m sure none of us realise the amount of work that went into organising the Sunday Mass every week. Thank you to all concerned, you did a great job. I would particularly like to mention Conor Hogan who gave of his time to video the Mass every week. Conor is an 18 year old student at Tarbert Comprehensive School who is starting his Leaving Cert year next September. He is hoping to go on to University College, Galway when he finishes in Tarbert to study Film & Media. He is interested in writing, writes a bit of sketch comedy himself, does a bit of amateur drama. Soccer is also a big part of his life. He was born in London and lived there until 1995 when he moved to Moyvane with his parents. His Mom, Brigette, is a Dub and his Dad, Brendan, was born in London but his parents were from Galway and Cavan. Well done Conor. It is good to see a young man involved in the community.

THE NEW NORMAL: I wonder where we are at right now and where we are heading. Unfortunately there seems to be very little checking at airports and that’s not good for any of us. The stories from Killarney and Dingle last weekend leave a lot to be desired. The rise in cases in the United States is very worrying and now there are more and more flights coming into Ireland while our government is advising us not to travel abroad! Can’t say I see the point. I cannot understand the Republican Party in the US still supporting the President who seems to have no interest whatsoever in his citizens who are dying in droves. Everything is a learning curve but we are now months down the road and it looks like no lessons have been learned. I know the country is massive and comparisons may not be correct but as all states are independent they could easily work in a stand alone system. The other day I was going into a supermarket and a guy was coming out with a trolley full of beer and cider, hardly planning dinner! I think the government needs to make decisions fast and make them mandatory with hefty fines attached.
