Hyland hits out at road knockers

image preview

Independent Cllr Christy Hyland hit out at people who have criticised the new N5 Westport to Turlough road project. Speaking at the February meeting of the West Mayo Municipal District, he said: "I will not call it the Westport to Castlebar road, there is talk it is taking five or ten minutes off the journey from Castlebar to Westport; I will say those people are ignorant - it is not a road from Westport to Castlebar. It is a road from the west coast of Mayo, commencing here in Westport and I am asking them to vision that in ten years it will link up with Mullingar and join on the dual carriageway into Dublin.

Broken angels tell a tale

Living in Ireland during the mid 17th century was a frightening and a bloody time. Following the extreme political crisis that resulted in civil war in England, Ireland was plunged into a period of despair that would lead to the surrender of Galway, and the beginning of its gradual demise. The invasion by Oliver Cromwell’s New Model Army, a ruthless exterminating machine, in 1649, led by Cromwell himself, not only destroyed all military opposition, besieged and ransacked towns, and imposed harsh penal laws on Catholic survivors, but it changed the demographic of the cities and lands with the resettlement of faithful Cromwellian generals, and their families. And in a new twist: tens of thousands of Irish people were transported to plantations in the West Indies, and elsewhere.

Treat yourself to an Atlantic break at the Cliffs of Moher Hotel

image preview

There is something wonderful about seaside villages — and it all comes down to the soundscape. My fascination with that noise began with a reading of E. Annie Proulx’s wonderful book The Shipping News which brought the reader into that space where the crashing Atlantic against the rocks of Newfoundland became a character in the narrative. And so it is here in Liscannor, this beautiful space looking out on that same ocean, where the sound of the waves plays an equal part of everyday life.
