Giving children access to culture on our doorstep

One of my favourite Baboró memories is a surprise flash-mob performed by 16 children to “Thriller” in Seapoint during the Silent Disco in 2012. The ever persuasive Teenagh Cunningham and Lali Morris convinced my husband, Kenneth Kennedy, and I, that this was exactly what Baboró needed to round off the festival. So having only two sons ourselves, we cajoled friends and relations to lend us their children to make up a troop of monsters, vampires, ghastly elves and ghouls to take to the floor and entertain the masses. Even now, I’m not sure how we were talked into it, but seeing these kids, many of whom had never danced or performed before, come alive as performers, proved just how essential the creative arts are to young minds and lives. Baboró, a fantastic and fun festival for and about children, encourages creative thinking and provides access to the arts for children regardless of any economic, social, cultural status. This is why Galway Water and Clada Group has been delighted to be involved with the Culture for Schools programme with Baboró since 2014.

Time for Mayo to find that winning formula

After Brendan Maher lifted the Liam McCarthy Cup high over his head in the Hogan Stand a fortnight ago, he mentioned in his speech that it had been "six long years" for Tipperary waiting for this day. Six years may be a long time in Tipperary, but it was 38 years for Mayo to reach an All Ireland final from the last time they won it in 1951 to their next dance with the girls at the end of the summer in 1989. That particular dance saw Cork go home with girls and since then Mayo have gone back to the same dance hall on six more occasions only to leave by themselves at the end of the night when the jackets were being collected from the cloakroom.

Momentum is a great thing. It has this kind of momentumishy factor that sort of drags you along and makes you achieve more than you would it you didn’t have that amount of momentumishness. It makes you stand up tall and take a deep breath and with your lungs full of air, it makes you more than you are and helps you stay there.
