Sunday brings us all together, no matter where we are

By the time next week’s issue of the Mayo Advertiser hits the shelves, hopefully we'll be basking in the afterglow of a day to remember for many years ahead. Sunday's games have given the people of this great and proud county something to think about and concentrate on for the past few weeks. The All-Ireland has enabled us to forget about or worries for a few brief flickering weeks, as the hunt for tickets and the build-up of excitement about the games has taken hold and pushed our financial, social, and other concerns to a small corner of the mind. Not that they have gone away or been forgotten about at all, but it has given us something positive to concern ourselves with. It has also created a great sense of community spirit and kinship from the top of Bangor Erris to the bridge in Shrule as we have all rowed in behind James Horan and Enda Gilvarry and their two teams of heroes.

Live register figures dropping, but does it really tell the story?

We have a story this week in the paper about the live register being down in Mayo by more than 300 in April from what it was in March. But while any drop is welcomed, is it really telling the whole story? Over the next few weeks, thousands of third level students around the country and from this county will cease their full time education. As they balance their final exams over the next few weeks, they also have to look ahead to an ever more uncertain future. Some will stay on to do postgraduate study. For some it is something they always planned to do, while for others it can be a kind of half-way house between necessity and choice as the job prospects are not great in their chosen field at the minute and a postgraduate qualification is becoming the base entry requirement, as once a Leaving Certificate was, which then went on to a degree and now it’s postgraduate.

Are ya going far?

XFor more years than I can care to remember, I found myself on Friday afternoons walking out past Tirellan, finding my slot, dropping my bag down on the path, pushing out my chest, flicking the hair out of my eyes (sighs), and sticking out my thumb. In those days, it was the nearest we got to the Kerouac idea — taking your chances with the generosity of strangers and engrossing yourself in a conversation that, like the free ride, could take you anywhere.

2012 — a spaced-out odyssey?
