CAROLINE’S DÓTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS WELCOME TO OUR WEEKLY COLUMN I am a dóTerra Wellness Advocate and I started my journey with dóTerra essential oils a couple of months ago. Since then, these powerful essential oils have changed my mindset, my mood and has had an uplifting effect in our family home. The dóTerra essential oils are a natural solution to care for our family’s health needs and improve our Wellbeing. They can help support us in many of the following that we experience from time to time: • Anxiety Issues • Digestive Support • Sleep, Muscle Care • Stress, Allergies • Energy Boost • Skin Support • Immunity and so much more. The oils can be used in three different ways; Topically- massaged on to our skin with or without a carrier oil, Aromatically – placing a few drops into a cold water diffuser and diffusing in our homes, classrooms, offices, salons or places of work and Internally – by adding them to your favourite food and drinks, or simply by taking one drop under the tongue daily. ALL THINGS SPICE! This week we look at dóTerra’s Clove essential oil, sourced all the way from Madagascar this essential oil is harvested from unopened dried flower buds of the evergreen tree, Eugenia caryophyllata. More commonly known as a spice oil and often used in the kitchen it also has many other benefits. Clove oil can be particularly useful for dental hygiene and has been used for centuries in gum and dental preparation and care to cleanse the mouth and freshen the breath. It has a lovely warm sensation when used topically on the skin and is often used in massage therapy for a calming affect on the body. Adding Clove oil to your food, drinks or by taking a two to three drops daily in a veggie capsule can support cardiovascular health and promote feelings of wellness. A fantastic oil for cooking because of its warm and spicy characteristics, so be sure to introduce it to your kitchen to add to your favourite Autumnal and Christmas recipes. And speaking about Christmas, we are all very much aware that this year will be different than previous years, so I would like to tell you about a wonderful Virtual Event that’s taking place this Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd. It’s called ‘Sharing the Old Magic of Christmas’ and in doing that we will be raising funds for two wonderful charities to support those who are less fortunate that us, and those charities are the: Simon Community and Focus Ireland. A group of us ladies have come together to share with you Videos & Talks, Stories about Old Traditions, sharing Recipes from our Ancestors, Candle & Wreath making, Knitting and Crocheting, Angel Card readings and Meditation, Fashion & Wellness and so much more. You too can be a part of this fabulous virtual event, and by donating just €10, you will have access in sharing the Old Magic of Christmas virtually with us on our Facebook page. There are great prizes too, so check it out @Caroline’sdoTerraessentialoils for more details and as we enter the Season of Goodwill you will be helping us in supporting those who need it most. Until next week, stay safe and keep that positivity flowing.

HISTORIC FIRST ONLINE MEETING OF KERRY COUNTY COUNCIL

The first ever online meeting of Kerry County Council took place on Monday following the signing of the necessary ministerial order to enable local authorities to meet remotely and to allow councillors to vote on various matters. The Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council, Cllr Patrick Connor-Scarteen, chaired the meeting from his home in Kenmare and his fellow elected members as well as Council management and the press joined the meeting online.   Cllr Connor-Scarteen said that votes on statutory business can now be taken during online meetings following the signing of the legislative requirements to facilitate such votes.   ‘This is the first time in 121 years of Kerry County Council that we have held a meeting using online meeting technology so from that point of view, it is very historic in these strange and challenging times.   ‘Until now, we were required to meet physically in the one location to deal with statutory business, but following the signing of the necessary legislative provisions, we can now deal with all business at remote or online meetings,’ he said. Chief Executive of Kerry County Council, Moira Murrell, said that the transition to fully online meetings has been important in continuing to carry out the functions of the local authority. ‘This is a new way of doing business for everyone involved but we continue to work closely with elected members and the wider community to operate within the current restrictions and to continue to provide essential services and facilities to the people of Kerry,’ she said.

KERRY COUNTY COUNCIL LAUNCHES LOCAL ‘KEEP WELL’ CAMPAIGN

As part of the Government’s Resilience Campaign during the COVID-19 pandemic, Kerry County Council is inviting people in the county to participate in and avail of a programme of events and initiatives which are being rolled out across Kerry under the national ‘Keep Well’ campaign. The local authority will be providing information online about keeping well during the coronavirus pandemic and promoting several health and wellbeing initiatives in line with the government’s ‘Plan for Living with COVID-19.’ These initiatives will be planned and delivered in close collaboration with other local agencies in Kerry. The campaign highlights the important role that individual and community resilience will play in contributing to the ongoing response to COVID-19 and is aimed at showing people of all ages how they can mind their own physical and mental health and wellbeing by adding healthy and helpful habits to their daily and weekly routines. The campaign encourages five key ways to wellbeing, which are: • • • • •

Keeping active and being outdoors - even during the winter, it is important to help physical and mental health and wellbeing. Staying connected - staying connected with people and addressing isolation as person-to-person connection is important to our wellbeing. Switching off and being creative - switching off and being creative or learning something new, getting back to nature and finding ways to relax can help our general wellbeing. Eating well - by nourishing your body and mind we can positively impact our physical and mental wellbeing. Managing your mood – equipping people with information on where to go if they need support

The campaign involves interagency projects with many of the Council’s existing services and departments including Kerry Libraries, Kerry County Council Arts Office, Kerry Recreation and Sports Partnership, Healthy Kerry, the Council’s Community Unit, Kerry County Museum, and the Kerry Public Participation Network (PPN). A ‘Kerry Events’ calendar has been created to capture and share information about events over the coming months and is available on the Tockify platform at tockify.com/kerryevents. Information will also be available on the Council website and social media platforms. The Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council, Cllr Patrick Connor-Scarteen urged people to engage with the Keep Well campaign. “We continue to learn how to live with the coronavirus pandemic and part of that is doing everything we can to look after ourselves and others and to keep well during the prevailing restrictions. A huge amount of work is being done by Kerry County Council and other partners to support individual and community resilience at this challenging time and I would encourage everyone to engage with the various initiatives and campaigns being run over the coming weeks and months,” he said. #Keepwell

THE ARTS COUNCIL PRESENT PLATFORM 31

The Association of Local Authority Arts Officers (LAAOs), in collaboration with the Arts Council, present PLATFORM 31 – a national opportunity for artists to develop their practice and test new ideas of collaboration, research, audience development, place-making and sharing their work. Designed to support and offer career development for 31 mid-career artists (one artist in each of the 31 local authorities around Ireland), there are two elements of support for participating artists in the scheme: financial and developmental. Participating artists will receive an €8,000 bursary to invest in themselves and their practice, combined with participation in an advisory and developmental framework and a peer network.  For over 35 years Local Authority Arts Offices have worked directly with artists to ensure the arts thrive in all communities. Working in a grass roots and foundational way has allowed Arts Officers to identify and to respond to the needs of artists, keeping the arts and cultural agenda focussed and relevant in changing environments. “We embrace the opportunity in our communities to inform and lead new ways of working collaboratively towards cultural development”, said Kate Kennelly, Kerry County Council Arts Officer. “At the heart of all of this are artists, the real animators of the arts in Ireland -  the writers, musicians, actors, performers, dancers and filmmakers. We envision this

12

pilot scheme as a platform for these creatives to value their time, to showcase their work and their collaborations, sharing their learnings locally and nationally as a legacy of the project.”  “The bursary seeks to provide artists with the time and resources to think, test new ideas, research new approaches and to reflect and engage with their artistic practice”, said Maureen Kennelly, Arts Council Director. “The Arts Council is delighted to partner with local authorities, who are responding thoughtfully and ambitiously to the challenging environment for artists. The carefully considered support network built into Platform 31 sets this bursary scheme apart.”  The scheme will establish a peer networking framework for participating artists, introducing them to a pool of critical thinkers to share their work and learnings, and encouraging a national conversation about creating work in local contexts. The exact nature of this artist support framework will be informed by the proposals and interests of the 31 artists selected. The award is open to artists of any discipline and practice, based in Ireland, as well as multi-disciplinary practice and design of all kinds. It is designed to support mid-career artists who must have been in receipt of support/investment from a Local Authority Arts Office or the Arts Council within the last three years.   Applications open from November 9th - 30th. For more information email localartsireland@gmail.com or see https://platform31.localartsireland.ie/

€1.9m minor works grant payments for Kerry Schools. Minister for Education Norma Foley TD has announced €1.9 million in minor works grants for primary and post-primary schools in Kerry to be paid in early December, 2020. The €1.9 million payments involve: An additional €1m funding for Covid-19 related Minor Works at post-primary level;   Bringing forward from 2021 the standard €900K minor works grant at primary level.

The Department’s capital budget was increased in 2020 to facilitate the payment of these grants in December 2020. Minister Foley said “The payment of the Minor Works Grant is important for any school and this is particularly true of this year, due to the unprecedented COVID-19 situation. The payment of these grants at this stage gives schools a good lead-in period for planning and undertaking works in 2021.” The minor works grant funding provides good flexibility at local level to assist schools to manage in the Covid environment and to put more sustainable arrangements in place. For example, schools may use this funding to enhance ventilation, purchase furniture or adapt toilet areas. The payment of the grants at this stage gives schools a good lead-in period to plan and undertake works that support the operation of the school in the current school year and assist in catering for capacity and other requirements going into the 2021/22 school year. Minister Foley concluded “This funding will be an invaluable resource to schools, as they deal with the impact of Covid-19. I wish to place on record again my gratitude to school communities and all involved in ensuring the safe and sustained opening of our schools” IT Tralee and Cork IT Move Step Closer to Technological University Status Minister Foley has also welcomed the latest developments as the Institute of Technology, Tralee and Cork Institute of Technology move closer to merging as the Munster Technological University. At the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Education, Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science on Thursday afternoon, a draft order set January 1st 2021 as the appointed day for the establishment of Munster Technological University. The order will be formally approved by resolution of each House of the Oireachtas before the end of the month. Minister Foley commented: “The establishment of what is only the second technological university in the State, and the first outside the capital, is another important milestone for education in Ireland in the South West and most especially in County Kerry. The presence of a technological university in Kerry will have a transformative effect on the communities it serves and will bring greater social and economic benefits to this county and region through a strengthened role in research and innovation and the delivery of a broad range of high quality education and training.” “IT Tralee and CIT merging as the MTU will be particularly significant also in terms of international recognition, FDI attraction, skills retention and creation and socioeconomic progression. It is a hugely positive step forward for County Kerry.” Foley concluded. Significant Rates Rebate of Over €11.8m For Kerry County Council Minister for Education and Kerry TD Norma Foley has welcomed the details surrounding the roll-out of the Government approved Commercial Rates Rebate for Kerry County Council. The rates rebate covers the period from March – January since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

SAN RITA WELLNESS

Welcome to San Rita Wellness weekly column…

We are all feeling a chill in the air now and that’s probably acceptable this time of the year. So, you are probably turning up the heating more, or putting on the extra layers of clothes to keep warm. This is also a time of year when our routines can change as the days are now shorter and the nights are longer. So what kind of an impact does that have on your everyday lifestyle? You may be sitting down in front of the fire earlier in the evenings. You may not be as active as you previously were. You may find that you feel hungrier because the weather has got colder.

Are you picking and nibbling mindlessly while watching TV? Very often we can do most damage at this time rather than our mealtimes.

Have something prepared like chopped fruit topped with flavoured yogurt. Have a low calorie bar or biscuit with the cup of tea. Take up hobby that will pass the night away.

Moving Less… Now that the weather has got wetter, darker and colder it is less enticing to put your foot outside the door. We can always come up with a 1000 excuses but never a good enough reason. Tips

Be active in the morning time instead of waiting until evening time. Make an arrangement to meet a friend to go for a walk, (less likely to cancel) Check out various online activities such as Dance, Keep fit etc (you can do this from the comfort of you own home)

Filling Foods… It’s important also that we are eating the right kind of foods that will keep us warm on the inside too. Soup is great this time of the year as it’s hot, filling and biscuits don’t go well with it. It’s often referred to as the “Hug in a Mug”. Soup is ideal as a starter, a meal or as an in-betweener. There is no secret when it comes to making soup as anything goes. It’s a great way of using up all the vegetables you had bought with the best of intentions. Tips

in association with

BOOK OF THE WEEK

You can always add in potatoes or pasta to thicken or add bulk to your soups. Try adding in some cooked chicken to make a filling meal of it. Batch cook soups, stews and casseroles in advance and freeze.

STORIES OF HOPE By Heather Morris

From the bestselling author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz The Tattooist of Auschwitz is one of the bestselling books of the 21st Century. Now, in this essential companion, Heather Morris presents an inspiring manual for life, with a series of tales of the remarkable people she has met, the incredible stories they have shared with her, and the lessons they hold for us all. In Stories of Hope, Heather will explore her extraordinary talents as a listener - a skill she employed when she first met Lale Sokolov, the tattooist at Auschwitz-Birkenau and the inspiration for her bestselling novel. It was this ability that led Lale to entrust Heather with his story, which she told in her novel The Tattooist of Auschwitz and the bestselling follow up, Cilka’s Journey. Now Heather shares the story behind her inspirational writing journey and the defining experiences of her life, including her profound friendship with Lale, and explores how she learned to really listen to the stories people told her - skills she believes we can all learn.

We will be taking phone orders each day from 11am to 3pm. Please phone 068 21021. Also by email at woulfesbookshop@gmail.com

We all have to accept the fact that it is winter and we have no control over the weather. But we do have control over how we can adapt to the situation. It is in our own hands and in our own minds also. Our San Rita Wellness ethos is “Eat well, Feel well, Live well” For extra support and for weekly accountability check us out on Facebook San Rita Wellness or sanritawellness.ie for details of our “At Home Service” or our “One to One Service” Give us a call on 087 6718377 or 087 1012174 Until next week Sandra and Rita

BEREAVEMENTS This last week has once again been overshadowed with grief sadness and shock as the Community witnessed the passing of one of our most very highly respected women as the sad news of Margaret (Peg) Moloney (Née Stack) R.I.P. of Tullahinell was learned on Wednesday of last week.

EDDIE CARMODY Next Sunday November 22nd marks the Centennial Anniversary of Lieutenant Eddie Carmody, who was murdered by the Black & Tans on that day 100 years ago. The place of his brutal execution in Rusheen is marked by the monument dedicated to where he was murdered and dedicated in honour of his memory has been the place in which thousands of people have come to down through the years to honour and commemorate his execution. However the Sinn Fein Party have been in contact to say that they will not be organising a commemoration to honour the Anniversary of the late Eddie Carmody this year due the present Covid 19 pandemic, but will do so when it is advisable and safe to do so at a later stage.

Peg as she was most affectionately known was a very jolly, humorous and very good natured woman, she was very much a people’s person and cherished the company of family and friends both here at home and abroad.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK “Life is like a camera, just focus on what is Important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don’t turn out, take another shot” PLEASE STAY SAFE IN THESE TROUBLED TIMES.

She will be sadly missed by neighbours and friends and everyone that had the pleasure of knowing her, but above all Margaret (Peg) passing will be immense for her family of Dolly, Peter, Ned, Patrick and Tony brothers Brendan, Phil and Jim, daughters-in-law Irene, Julie and Marian, son-in-law John, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, nephews, nieces, and extended family to whom we extend our deepest sympathies at this most sad time for them.

BEING NEIGHBOURLY As we are now into Winter Season and with the mornings, days, evenings and nights getting colder and longer please remember to be extra vigilant as to the welfare of our elderly neighbours or indeed somebody living alone in these very trying times check to make sure they are warm and have food to eat and that they are in good health. PLEASE STAY SAFE AND ENSURE OUR NEIGHBOURS ARE SAFE.

Peg is predeceased by her beloved husband Patrick who passed just a short few months ago on Sunday 13th September last. In accordance with H.S.E guidelines, a private family Funeral took place for Margaret (Peg), with the Requiem Mass being celebrated in St. Michael the Archangel Church, Ballylongford, on Monday morning last at 11a.m, with burial afterwards in Relig Mhichíl Cemetery, Ballylongford. May Margaret Peg Moloney (Née Stack) Rest in Peace. ST OLIVERS NATIONAL SCHOOL FUNDRAISER Due to the Covid-19 pandemic St Oliver’s National School in the village have been severely affected with no fundraising activities taking place so far this year to offset the schools energy expenses. The biggest expense facing the school this year is their energy expenses and in particular the costs of heating the school.

The cost of the oil and the maintenance of the burning equipment have put immense financial pressure on the school management. To hopefully alleviate this problem and to ensure that the burners can be kept running and that the school is heated, a number of local cyclists from the area are going to cycle 100 kilometres in an effort to raise much needed funds for this essential requirement.

TARBERT NOTES E-MAIL ADDRESS; notesplynch@outlook.com or tel Patrick Lynch at 068 36117 before 7pm Sunday. SYMPATHY Sympathy of the community is extended to Geraldin Flavin, Tieraclea on the recent death of her mother, Catherine Ita O’Connor of Kilmorna, Listowel, County Kerry and late of Purt, Abbeyfeale, County Limerick. She died on Saturday 7 November and Requiem Mass and burial took place in Abbeyfeale on Wednesday 11 November. The death also took place of Sean Kennedy, The Writings, Listowel and formerly of Ballyfermot, Dublin.

NEW BOOK Congratulations and best wishes to Michael Guerin, Listowel on the launch of his new book ‘Soldiers We Will Be’. The publication with a strong North Kerry context and with many years of research is about soldiers who answered the call to arms and took part in conflicts such as World War One, the War of Independence and the Civil War in North Kerry. Also featured is the British fortification of the Shannon Estuary fearing a threatened invasion by Napoleon. There is also the story of the Emergency Years of World War Two and the building of Fort Shannon at Ardmore, Tarbert. The book includes some 400 evocative photographs, many by Michael who was a member of the FCA, An Fórsa Cosanta Aitiúil, from 1962 to 2003. The book is now on sale at the special pre Christmas price of €13 and would make an ideal Christmas gift. The book can be purchased locally at Brosnan’s Daybreak, Main Street and at Gala Shop and Filling Station.

Sean died on Friday 13 November aged 77. Following Requiem Mass in St Mary’s Church, Listowel he was buried in St John Paul 11 Cemetery on Saturday 14 November. About 25 years ago, Sean a retired taxi driver moved from Dublin with his wife and family to Cockhill, Tarbert where he lived for a number of years. In recent years they moved to Listowel and he had not been well recently. Sympathy of the community is extended to his wife Catherine, family and friends.

DONAL O’CONNOR Well done to Donal O’Connor, Tarbert Island who enthralled us last Saturday on Radio Kerry’s Joe McGill Show, telling ghost stories in his own inimitable style. Donal composed and recited a tribute to the Ballylongford Rambling House in his rendition of ‘Kitty’s Kitchen’ with a varying cast of patricipants.

CÚRSAI EAGLAISE While Churches in the Diocese of Kerry remain closed for the celebration of public Masses the good news is that it is anticipated that restrictions will be lifted shortly in preparation for the Christmas season.

In another poetic tribute he vindicated the poor old cow who had been scapegoated for all the ills of climate change. With over 70 years farming experience there was nobody better qualified to plead and make a case for the much maligned cow. Gura fada buan é agus go maire sé i bfad.

Surprisingly there have been no restrictions on the celebration of public Masses in France and Germany where there have been tough lockdown restrictions. For the month of November you can remember the faithful departed by visiting a graveyard. St Mary’s Church is open daily from 10am to 6pm for private prayer. If you want to book an anniversary Mass or contact the parish office you can do so by telephoning James, the Secretary at 068 / 36111 to make an appointment. The opening hours are Monday 10.30am to 1.30pm , Wednesday 10.30am to 1.30pm and Friday 10.30am to 2.30pm. or email <tarbert@dioceseofkerry.ie>.

WORDS TO THE WISE ‘When things are at their worst, put on your best suit’ - former Councillor Liam Purtill, Tarbert and Ballylongford who always had an extensive wardrobe. Smaoinigh ar an píosa comhairle sin, saor in aisce.

Fintan O’Connor’s side came unstuck in the opening minutes of a tough and physical clash in which the rain poured down over Belfast for most of the game making hurling conditions difficult for both sides and now have to regroup themselves for a winner takes all clash against Carlow next weekend in Austin Stack Park,Tralee, with nothing only a win needed to secure a Joe McDonagh Cup final place and set up a possible fourth meeting of the year with Antrim.

Invite family members to name a prayer intention that everyone will pray for during the Mass. Stand to hear the Gospel or to join in praying the Our Father, just like you would in church.

It was heartbreak for Kerry who had extra time battles on two consecutive weekends, and were defeated on a final scoreline of 1-10 to 1-6.

We were having a trip down school lane memory and my friend recalled some of the cruel, scathing verbal taunts delivered to her by her primary teacher some 60+ years prior. Oh, the power of the tongue! I’m sure we all have a memory of a “laceration” we got at some point in our life and the sting of hurtful words that cut so deeply. Words!! They are the most powerful force available to humanity. And each of us can use this force constructively, with words of encouragement or destructively, to rip someone to shreds. What super powers we possess to help, to heal, to hurt, to hinder , to harm, to humiliate, to honour, to heed. Some people may justify their condemnation of others by saying “ I’m only saying what’s true,” or even “ l have every right to say what l said, tough if it hurts “ However the bible, the Word of God has much to say about how we are to use the gift of speech. Proverbs 18:21 reads “death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat it’s fruit.” And Proverbs 18:4 says “a person’s words can be life giving water, words of true wisdom are as refreshing as a bubbling brook.” The bible is full of the words of God and in it He tells us how to relate to others lovingly in what we say, since this is what He wants of us as His followers. In Ephesians 4:29 He tells me “let no corrupt talk come out of your mouth. Say only what is good and helpful to those you are talking to, and what will give them a blessing. “ It’s a big ask at times. But when I see what the One, True and Living God asked His only beloved Son to do for me, I realise I need to listen to Him. He loves me and He knows that “man shall not live on bread alone but on every Word that comes from the mouth of God.” The bible is God breathed. His Word is His direct line of communication to us. Luke 11:28 reads “ blessed is he who reads the Word of God and observes it.” I want my days to be blessed by God. Proverbs 30:3 says “Every Word of God is tested. He shields those who take refuge in Him.” There is no one and nothing that can give us anything even remotely near what our Heavenly Father has to offer us. But we have the choice to accept Him or reject Him. And He lovingly calls us saying “Behold, l stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My Voice and opens the door, l will come in to him and will dine with him and He with Me.” Revelation 3:20.

ST. FAUSTINA’A HEALING PRAYER “Jesus may Your pure and healthy blood circulate in my poor ailing organism, and may Your pure and healthy body transform my weak unhealthy body, and may a healthy and vigorous life flow once again within me, if it is truly Your Holy will.” Amen. T.W.
