Summertime Sadness


A bit of a misleading blog post title as I’m still waiting for summer and I’m not really sad but it’s feeling like the end of an era.

The Sligo Summer Festival is over, the Fleadh Cheoil is over and all the adventures leading up to my Wild Atlantic Wayfarer exhibition are over so I’m feeling a bit redundant at the moment and not quite sure what’s around the corner, if anything. Oh dear this sounds like I’m complaining but I’m not, just feeling a wee bit at a loose end. Although I’m very much looking forward to popping along to the Five Glens festival tomorrow and having Afternoon Tea at Manorhamilton castle 🙂 There’s a lot going on over the weekend and you can find out more about the festival here.

  1. What a wonderful summer you have had 🙂 The Five Glens is new to me. The one thing that caught my eye is a Tree Walk on Sunday led by Shaillagh Healy, an incredible woman. She is an incredibly gifted arborist as well a campaigner for the better use of food with minimum waste.

    Bards In The Woods were going to meet up at Cavan Burren, not far away from Manorhamilton, direct competition maybe to Shailagh, without knowing it. We have postponed until the following Sunday, though, 30th August, as the forecast for Sunday afternoon is very drenching..

    Have fun at Manorhamilton. Will miss it myself due to going to local market, a lunch date and hopefully rain staying off to get essential tree labyrinth work done.

    1. I love the Cavan Burren, such a beautiful place. I do hope the weather improves for you for Bards in The Woods next week and also for Shaillagh’s walk this evening. I met Shaillagh at a Sligo Tidy Towns meeting, she’s a very interesting lady.
