On this day in 1921, The Catholic Irish Free State became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain.

The second wave of frost and snow that has gripped Ireland for the past two weeks is beginning to thaw. We saw temperatures plummet to unprecedented levels in the run up to Christmas. In Cornameeltha, we've had no water this past week but hopefully this will change soon. Still, it was a small hardship compared to some and barely effected our festivities.
To the followers of this blog, I hope you all had a Happy Christmas and wish you the very best for the coming year.
