Remembering Dolores O'Riordan




Remembering Dolores O'Riordan,
a tribute to The Cranberries'
 lead vocalist
January 16th, at 9:21am

Dolores O'Riordan, the lead singer of the Cranberries,
 died suddenly on January 15th. She was 46. So far,
the
cause of her death has not been determined.

O' Riordan was the vocalist of the popular rock band
The Cranberries, starting in 1990. The group earned
world recognition in 1994, with the release of their
song, Zombie. That hit single won the Best Song
award at the MTV Europe Music Awards in 1995.

The band’s last album titled "Something Else"
 was released on April 28th, in 2017.

A GREAT EXAMPLE OF THE DIFFERENCE!

How can the Rhondda show the world the difference
between folk music and show biz? It's easy !

For thousands of years musicians cheered up their
friends, communities (& themselves) by playing
music. They didn't get paid, or even consider
"a career in music", until relatively recently.

Today, the Rhondda is FULL of groups of musicians
happy to meet as friends & play beautiful music...

Come to the Rhondda and find the true spirit of
"folk" music... it's a real revolution!

and for those reared on the '50s US hegemony
of Pete Seeger, et al, it's a real revelation !

Hello Friends,

Sadly, the campaign to prevent development on
 environs surrounding the Hill of Tara is ON AGAIN!

To refresh memories, go here:
http://globalartscollective.org/anam-cara-for-Tara.htm

I'll update the online information asap.

I posted the following info' to my Facebook wall.
Please share with audiences and friends!

Still Crying "SAVE TARA"!

Ireland is in trouble 'all over' again...

Just when reports are showing how important
 agriculture is to Ireland's recovery, the Irish
National Roads Authority (NRA, dominated by
 the real estate industry) and Meath County
 Council have granted the first development
 permits to build Type 1 FULL service areas
 every 100km along the controversial M3
Tolled motorway network, starting between
 the Clonee and Blundelstown junctions.

Yes, the corporate land speculators and
developers are ON TARGET with plans for their
 'model' developments starting with a Type 1 FULL
 SERVICE area - "a building housing a convenience
 shop, restrooms, washrooms & tourist information
 in addition to fuel facilities, parking and a picnic
 area" across an archaeological site which has
 survived as rich agricultural land for millennia.

It won't be long now before they will get permits
 to begin building industrial parks and housing
developments. We know this model only too well.

 for-drivers-to-get-more-rest-areas-30548283.html


Coincidentally, Ireland's celebrated economist,
 author & commentator David McWilliams wrote:

 "despite all the hipster hype about hi-tech, start-
ups and Silicon Dock in Dublin, agriculture is still
Ireland’s biggest indigenous sector, contributing
 €24bn to the Irish economy, almost 10pc of all
exports and 7.7pc of all employment. (According
to Teagasc, this figure rises to 10pc when all
agricultural subsections are included.)"

Carmel Ní Dhuibheanaigh has written the following
 letter template and I'm asking everyone I know to
 join me in telling everyone they know to get the
 word out.

WE ALL CAN HELP
raise awareness!


Write LETTERS and emails to
info@meathcoco.ie
and
info@nra.ie

The more the merrier- everything is logged.

Here is Carmel's letter TEMPLATE

Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am writing to register my concern at the recent
 Meath Chronicle announcement that a Type 1
Service Area is being planned by the NRA in
 conjunction with Meath Co.Co.between Clonee
 and Blundelstown junctions.

Part of this area runs between the Hill of Tara and
 the Hill of Skryne. As you know, this landscape
 was the subject of huge contention during the
 construction of the M3 Motorway. Development
 of the area runs contrary to the proposed Tara
 Skryne Landscape Project. I remind you that it is
 an objective of the County Development Plan
 2007-2013 to designate the historic Tara Skryne
area as a Landscape Conservation Area and
 that under Strategic Policy HER SP2 Meath Co
  is committed to "Protect the historic and
 archaeological landscapes of the county".

I will oppose all and any such development
within the Tara Skryne Boundary as defined
 at the Boundary Workshop for the Landscape
Conservation Area Project in 2010, and will
 continue to monitor any such proposals
 vigilantly.

Yours sincerely......

Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee - God and Man

(spoken) In the beginning, there was just God,
So God made man in his own image: a little image that is.
Man asked God, "My God, how great art thou?"
And to show man his great power, they played a game.

Sonny, I'll play the part of the man, and you'll play the part of God

God and man played hide-and-go-seek.
God told man, "Now man, don’t you peek."
Man counted to ten, and then looked around,
But God was nowhere, nowhere to be found.

Man looked on the mountain.
He looked across the sea.
He looked in the stars, in the skies, in the trees.
He looked in the wind, in the sun, on the ground,
But God was nowhere, nowhere to be found.

So man made an image and he gave it a name,
But this man-made god brought nothing but pain.
Man started shouting "God! Where can you be?"
"I’m right here man, inside of thee."

Oh, man was so shocked, he was really surprised.
'Cuz he looked everywhere, but right there inside.
Now when man found God, man found love,
And man found out what we all are made of.

God is in you and God is in me.
To love all of God is to love humanity.
God is in you and God is in me.
To love all of God is to love humanity."
