The photograph above was taken last Sunday when we were part of 48 who participated in the organised walk to celebrate the Cloghane Pattern and ascended to the top of Mount Brandon. The weather was pleasant despite downpours not ten miles away.
I took the above photograph near the summit of Mount Brandon with the intention of preparing a blog about how the German language took priority over Irish in the Gaeltacht area. I was wondering how to introduce Gunter and Christy Moore’s ‘Continental Ceili’.
But having written yesterday’s blog entry, it reminded me of the joy of parental pride.
Whatever aches and pains I am still feeling are soothed by the parental pride of our seven year old being at the front of the trek to the top.
Well done, my babs.
