Sunday 11 October, 2020The Limerick Division of the Galtee Walking Club descended on the mystical setting of Lough Gur and it's Heritage Centre today. On arrival we were greeted by the site manager Alice and tour guide Morgan. Conditions were good and we all enjoyed a very informative talk as he delved into the megalithic, neolithic and folklore of the place as we climbed Knockfinnan and Knockadoon. We visited the Heritage centre to purchase copies of the book, 'The Farm By Lough Gur' before we settled down to early afternoon coffee. Denny O'Dwyer

Covid - 19A poem by Rody Tierney
In the year of twenty twenty this enemy swept the land.
More deadly than Adolf Hitler, the Famine or the Black and Tans.
This invisible silent tyrant, by God he was our foe,
On our weak and oldest generation he struck his deadly blow.
He was conceived and born in China, Coronavirus is his name.
He made his way to Europe and invaded Italy and Spain.
The convoy of coffin lorries on the telly made it known
This enemy has no mercy and combat weapons we have none.
We can not hug our neighbour or shake him by the hand.
Social gatherings are forbidden and there is no Sunday Mass.
The restaurants and pubs are closed, there is an air of doom and gloom.
Over seventies are confined indoors and told they must cocoon.
Our government they did us proud, they met this plague head on.
Our medical people are all on board, each and every one.
The minister asked for a little help, he got over sixty thousand volunteers.
Our well trained and dedicated nurses returned from overseas.
We are a strong united people with spirit, faith and hope.
We will get through this together though our backs are on the ropes.
On this blustery and wet Palm Sunday as I sit and write this poem
I remember friends and Marathons past but today I must and will remain at home.
Wash your hands.
