Don't know what the Craig is (or lack of)with the eagle I haven't been there in years I think in the days of evening funeral removals to the church was the last time I was there,last I heard the pub was franchised out which never really works well in my opinion as these guys will serve allsorts to get their money usually driving out the regulars.sad to see so few in the pub on a Saturday night it was a great pub once.

Glasthule now has a public access Defribulator.
It is on the side wall of Sam Macauleys Chemist. Can't put up a photo as the limit has been exceeded.

Yes Holla, it is a great tribute to the late Larry Costello. The family are tireless in getting funds together.

The things you come across rummaging through old papers.
And we always assumed Black '47 was something experienced in the west.

Great article Micheál. It must have been a terrible time for all crop growers. Interesting that there were potato- fields at Glasthule. I suppose all the land was used for crops with no supermarkets!! We have got very far removed from the land in this generation. Though if potatoes keep going up in price I might consider putting in a few on Patrick's Day. I remember my father gathering the good ones and cutting them in sections when the eyes formed then on with the coats and dig the trenches!! ( the children picked the stones and cleared the plots!).

Now you have me back thinking about the famine times!

I was going through Glasthule/Sandycove on Friday morning and noticed a very elderly lady bending down weeding the pavement. I thought she was just a resident doing outside her own house. After a few hours I was finished in the hairdressers and lo and behold she was moving down the street cleaning the pavement as she went. Well done her! No wonder Glasthule looks so good.
