“Make Your Céile”: The Health and Wellbeing officer with Scotstown GAA Club has
launched a novel idea which I think should be extended all over the country and I
would be surprised if other organisations did not take it on and promote it too.
Its very simple really but the effects are far-reaching: SCOTSTOWN GAA Health and
Wellbeing Invites you to: “Make Your Céile” any time between Sun 29th Oct – Sun 5th
Nov. Don’t put it off any longer to go visit that someone who’s on your mind, neighbour,
old friend, new baby, someone on their own. We are inviting young and old from
all over Tydavnet parish to get involved in a ‘Chairde Week’. Don’t make ceiling
a thing of the past! More details on www.scotstowngaa.ie. Modern technology and
the demands of modern fast living has cut us off from too many people and has ruined
the art of conversation. It is time we all re-connected with each other as human
beings and not just as a stylus touch pen for a phone or iPad. There is someone out
there who is waiting for you to contact them, to call with them personally, to have
a chat, to listen to each other and there is someone you know you should go and see
and there is someone out there who should get in contact with you. Why don't you
make the first move. In the years not too long ago everyone looked out for everyone
else, people went on their ceili, people talked to each other face to face, people
did not feel so alone because a friend was close by and would call. This is a marvellous
idea that has been launched by Bernie Sherry for the Scotstown GAA club but I'm sure
she would be delighted if a club, organisation, group or even one person from another
area followed her invitation and went on 'their Ceili'. Well done Bernie and I hope
this takes off as it is one of the best ideas that has come this way in a long time.
