‘Henceforth Irish is to be the language of Tawin’

As letter writers to newspapers know, as soon as you make your point, and satisfied that it is the only salient point worth making, you can be brought back to reality smartly by a riposte! Sir Roger Casement’s letter in the Irish language newspaper An Claidheamh Soluis, in the late summer of 1904, was a hard hitting criticism of the attitude of those parents who favoured that their children learned to speak English, instead of Irish. “The general mass of the Irish speaking parents have kicked the language out of doors.” He fully supported the struggle of the people of Tawin, a small island on the east side of Galway Bay, who had withdrawn their children from the local national school because they wanted their children educated through Irish. As a result the authorities withdrew the schoolmistress, and the school, unused for years, fell into disrepair. They warned the islanders that if they wanted the school to re-open they had to pay for its repair.

St Joseph’s set for glory in cross country championships

Round one of the county Kilkenny cross-country championships was held in Ballycurran Cross on Sunday. The course, well marked out by officials from host club, St Joseph’s, was in good condition despite the heavy overnight rain. The weather was good and so were the results for St Joseph’s. Thirteen points from victory with boys under 10 and under 16 and girls under 18 combined with second place for teams in boys under 12 and under 14 set them up with a good chance to re-capture the juvenile shield which Kilkenny City Harriers have held for the last couple of years. Aughavillar is currently in second place with ten points but as they have a lack of athletes in the older age groups it would seem that they have a lot to do to catch St Joseph’s.
