Cloonliffen NS School Musical

It was a wet and wild Sunday night and a storm was brewing up outside. Inside however, it was a different story, a magical one at that. The final pieces of Cloonliffen’s Magical Christmas Jigsaw were coming together. This was it. This was the first time the whole school had come together to perform a musical as one. Lights at the ready, microphones at the ready, but alas, they had to wait for that last flash of lightning before the annual Cloonliffen show could begin.

Your Career, Your Choices

Q: I’m going for an interview next week with a man who can only be described as self-made, metaphorically speaking. He started out with nothing, built his business up from a humble start, minded it carefully, and it’s still doing very well despite the economic conditions.

Any advice? (Luke, email)

The swearing, the singing, and the scheming

For years now the people of this country have been taking our medicine, swallowing the bitter pill. Sure weren’t we all part of it. We all bought into the dream. The holidays, the cars, the second houses, the au pairs, the gadgets, etc, etc. The flamboyancy of it all. When the banks told us to take out a home improvement loan or a car loan to buy the latest model with all the bells and whistles, or to extend our mortgage and put a few bob into savings, or when they kept increasing our credit card limits, we went along with it. We’re as guilty as Drumm et al, or so they’d have us believe.

More special needs cuts is austerity gone too far

The measure of a country is how it looks after its most vulnerable. That might include the elderly, the homeless, those who are marginalised from society, and children. It also includes children and adults with special needs, and the latest Government cuts in teaching hours for special needs students is an appalling attack on a section of society who do not always have the voice to stand up for themselves. They rely on others to ensure their rights are protected, and when the guardians of our society, the Government, let the austerity axe fall on them, someone needs to shout stop.
