Annamakerrig: Following on from the very successful Heritage tours of Annamakerring conducted by Cristopher Fitz-Simons, Christopher wants to do something for the Friends of Monaghan Museum and with this in mind, he has suggested that he talks to us on the writings of Tyrone Guthrie with particular reference to Monaghan. We are fortunate that the Director of Annaghmakerrig, Robert Mc Donald is willing to make the writing room available to us on the 21st September at 2.p.m. to 4.p.m. (Tea/Coffee will be served) Due to space limitations in the room ( overlooking the lake), the maximum number of people who can be accommodated is ten. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and after that will be placed on a reserve list. You will be expected to make your own way to Annamakerrig and we will stick closely to the time-table outlined above. Please contact me at number below to make your booking. 047 82928 Looking forward to seeing you there for an atmospheric afternoon. 2019 County Monaghan Volunteer Awards.

Help if you can: I am trying to gather information on Charles Faber Callan and his wife Brigid, nee Devlin. He was born in Creggan, Derry but came to north Monaghan as a teacher. He was a boarder in McKenna’s of Lisseagh before he married Brigid Devlin. Where did he teach? Where was Brigid from? Was she related to the Devlins of Derryrellan? She had a sister Ellen who was her bridesmaid and James McKenna was best man. Was Brigid a teacher and if so where? They lived on Main Street, Emyvale, opposite the High House and both Charles and Brigid are buried in Corracrin along with their baby that died soon after birth. Can anyone tell me any more information about them? If you can it would be appreciated. email me HERE

How Do You Live Your Dash I know a man who stood To speak at the funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on his tombstone, From the beginning to the end. He noted that first came the date of birth, And spoke the following date with tears. But he said that what mattered most of all Was the dash between those years. For that dash represents all the time That he spent alive on earth And now only those who loved him know What that little line is worth. For it matters not how much we own, The cars, the house, the cash. What matters is how we live and love, And how we spend our dash. So think about this long and hard, Are there things that you would like to change? For you never know how much time is left That can still be rearranged. If we could just slow down enough To consider what’s true and real, And always try to understand The way other people feel. And be less quick to anger, And show appreciation more. And Love the people in our lives, Like we’ve never loved before. If we treat each other with respect, And more often wear a smile. Remember that this little dash, Might only last a while. So, when your eulogy’s being read, With your life’s actions to rehash Would you be proud of the things they say About the way you spent your dash.
