COOLEY GENEALOGICAL AND HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Theme : FARMING PAST AND PRESENT IN NORTH COUNTY LOUTH

Matthew McGreehan, Louth I.F.A. County Chairman will give a talk in Long’s Pub, Grange, Cooley, on Friday night, October 24th, 2014, at 8.00 p.m. on the changing face of Irish Farming past and present in the Louth area. The recent history of agriculture has been closely tied with a range of political issues including water pollution, biofuels, genetically modified organisms, tariffs, and farm subsidies. Why not come and learn more about the everyday life of a farmer in a changing environment!
Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you’re a thousand miles from the corn field.
There are three easy ways of losing money – racing is the quickest, women the most pleasant, and farming the most certain.

Remember that creating a successful marriage is like farming: you have to start over again every morning.
Farming with live animals is a 7 day a week, legal form of slavery.
REFRESHMENTS SERVED – ADMISSION 5 EURO – EVERYBODY WELCOME.

Liam Neeson, Jeremy Irons, and Jon Snow get behind Dundalk book

Two of Hollywood’s leading actors, Liam Neeson and Jeremy Irons, along with Channel 4’s celebrated newscaster Jon Snow, have commented enthusiastically on the recently published Dundalk novel A Mad and Wonderful Thing.

 

Liam Neeson, yesterday, commented on the locally set book: ‘I thought it excellent. Deeply satisfying and moving. I also think that sufficient time has passed since the Good Friday Agreement to, at last, have a novel that goes inside the head of one of the ‘Troubles’ protagonists and hear the pros and cons of the conflict (to take up arms or not,) told in an original and exciting way.
