Are you thinking about making a break for it this autumn season?
Well, what do we make of the weather? Last week it was completely spring-like, mild temperatures, lots of sunshine, and one would really think that spring had arrived. In contrast, this week started off with cold, showery, shivery type of weather and low temperatures. So it is the old story; we think spring has come but really it hasn’t. And yet, the daffodils are out, not quite in abundance yet but they are out with their yellow blooms. In my back garden I have a small magnolia tree. Now, it is called a dwarf magnolia, but because of political correctness you are not allowed any more to say that word with regard to anything, and so it is a small magnolia. The buds are already on all of the branches of that magnolia tree, which would indicate that it is soon going to flower. But somehow I don’t think so if this weather continues. Be that as it may, well at least so far we’ve been spared the snow and wild winds which were very much the climate of 12 months ago. So let’s hope the benign days continue – and more daffodils please, and more buds turning to flower please, in everyone’s garden!

Samaritan volunteers will be in the city centre this weekend providing discreet face-to-face emotional support at Eyre Square to anyone attending the Galway Arts Festival. This outreach programme will be available from Friday evening through to early Sunday. Volunteers will provide emotional support to people in need and to raise awareness of suicide. Events such as this allow Samaritans to go direct to those in emotional need who would not ordinarily come directly to them.
