Minding those who mind our land

JJ Finn’s farm lies in a valley a few miles outside Gort, by the slopes of Derrybrien. For three generations, his family has farmed here. A century of agriculture, of caring for the land and the animals. In the heart of his 170 acres, the erratic Streamstown river runs down the valley, all the way to Thoor Ballylee, where once Yeats peered out at it.

Testing times for US and Brexit, but we have some excellent rugby to enjoy

As I am compiling this weekly column for the Advertiser, people in the US are voting in the mid-term elections for both the House of Representatives and the Senate. So by the time my column appears the results will be fully out. I hope that the polls which are forecasting Democratic wins in the House of Representatives are correct, but of course our belief in polls has run low. President Trump has put a huge effort into shoring up the Republican seats in both the Congress and the Senate, and he has campaigned tirelessly for the last 10 days hoping to consolidate the Republican vote. It seems that the US is viewing these mid-term elections as a referendum on President Trump and his handling of the US. So it will be very intriguing to see the results and to see whether the Democrats will come back in charge of the House of Representatives.
