CAROLINE’S DÓTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS CAROLINE’S POD OF POSITIVITY Welcome to our weekly column and our Pod of Positivity. It is here you will find little tips, tools and information that help us to maintain a life of health, wellness, love, and gratitude while incorporating dóTerra’s powerful essential oils into our daily routine. A Restful Night’s Sleep & Feelings of Calm and Relaxation – Sounds Good! So, this week I want to talk about dóTerra’s Clary Sage essential oil and how it is known for its calming abilities to the body. It dates to the Middle Ages and it includes relaxing and soothing properties that can help with the rejuvenation and calming of the skin. It is also a beautiful body balancing essential oil. When Clary Sage is diffused in any one room of your home, it adds to a relaxing environment, and it can be sprayed when mixed with cooled boiled water onto the bed linen & curtains before sleep-time. When Clary Sage is taken internally, by means of adding one drop to a small amount of water and drinking it, it can be a great natural aid to the body to promote a restful night’s sleep. During a menstrual cycle, Clary Sage should be applied to the abdomen area with a little fractionated coconut oil and massaged into this area for a soothing relief. It is very relaxing when added to a warm bath and provides a stress-relieving soak. Clary Sage can be added to your shampoo and hair conditioner to promote healthy hair and scalp and works great with dóTerra’s Rosemary and Lavender essential oils. The Clary Sage plant can grow up to six feet in height and is steam distilled from the flower part of the plant. DóTerra’s Clary Sage oil comes in a 15ml size bottle which contains 285 drops of pure unadulterated essential oil. This means that all the dóTerra essential oils are 100% pure and do not contain any harsh chemicals, substances, or alcohols. This beautiful Clary Sage oil also works on our emotions and can assist individuals in changing their perceptions and gives one courage to see the truth. Its one of the finest oils for the brow chakra and helps open the soul to new possibilities and experiences. I personally love wearing this oil as a perfume, and I apply one to two drops behind my ears. These oils can be used in three different ways: Topically – applying them on to our skin with or without a carrier oil. Aromatically – by placing a two to three drops into a cold-water diffuser and diffusing these oils in our homes, classrooms, offices, salons or places of work and business. And the third way, internally – by adding them to your favourite food, waters, or drinks, or simply by taking one drop under the tongue daily. The oils are a natural solution to care for our needs and our family’s health needs. They can support us with many of the following that we experience from time to time, such as: Anxiety, Digestive Support, Sleep Assist, Muscle Care, Stress Buster, Depression, Grief, Energy Boost, Skin Support, Immunity Boost, Allergy Assist and so much more. You can contact me for more information on any of the above and I will be happy to assist you in your journey of health and wellbeing with dóTerra’s essential oils.

The HSE needs to make available more respite beds in North Kerry and the County. Cllr Michael Foley Cllr Michael Foley said: “The HSE needs to needs to make available more respite beds in the County and especially in North Kerry which cover quite a large catchment area. I am asking the HSE to consider looking at the former Oakland Nursing Home at Derry, Listowel, which would be ideal for this purpose. Currently there are only 9 respite beds for the County and of these only 2 in Listowel Community Hospital. This is not adequate for the size of the county or the Listowel area.”

The table below sets out the number of Respite & Convalescence beds in each of the Community Hospitals in Kerry: Community Hospital No. of Respite Beds No of Convalescence Beds Caherciveen 2 1 Dingle 2 9 Kenmare 1 5 Killarney 2 32 Listowel 2 13 Total 9 60


The Cathaoirleach and Chief Executive of Kerry County Council have welcomed the announcement of €5.6m in funding for projects in Kerry under the Active Travel Programme. Cllr Patrick Connor-Scarteen said that critical leisure and recreational infrastructure projects across Kerry would benefit from the funding.  ‘It is great news for the county and an acknowledgement of the hard work of Kerry County Council in developing these projects that Kerry is receiving €5.6m in funding today,’ he said. ‘The development of our cycling and walking infrastructure is as important as it ever was and will ensure that walkers and cyclists will be able to avail of improved facilities.’   Chief Executive Moira Murrell said that the development of sustainable transport infrastructure remained a key priority for the local authority. ‘I would like to thank Kerry County Council staff who have developed these projects in recent years and which can now progress to being constructed for the benefit of all our citizens,’ she said.

Cllr Foley continued: “There has been a number of families and Carers in contact with me who are caring for family member suffering from Alzheimer’s and simply can’t get a respite place in this County. However they have to travel as far as Dromcollogher and Newcastlewest in Co Limerick if they are lucky enough to get respite, which is quite a distance away.” “It is estimated that family carers save the State in excess of €20bn every year and reduce the pressure on hospital beds by keeping loved ones at home, where they wish to be and keep them safe, particular during these most difficult times. They deserve to be reassured that when they need a well-earned break that there is a respite place available for their loved ones.” Cllr Foley concluded: I am asking the HSE to consider obtaining the former Oaklands Nursing Home, Derry, Listowel, for this purpose, which would provide a vital service for those in need in North Kerry and the County and give recognition to our Carers.”

Welcome to San Rita Wellness weekly column… Welcome to San Rita Wellness weekly column

First of all we would like to wish all our readers a very Happy Easter. This is a wonderful and positive time of the year as there is a great stretch in the evenings with the clocks having gone forward. It is also a time of the year where we make plans and look forward to the Summer months ahead. Another great thing about Easter is that this weekend is a Bank Holiday . And it is also a time for us to indulge in a little bit of chocolate or what ever it is you fancy as a treat. However it can also be a time where we may overindulge and it may throw us off track a little bit from the plans and commitment we had made to ourselves. So accountability to ourselves or someone else can help steer us back on course again. This week we are going to focus on how important it is for you and your well being to keep yourself accountable to your commitment to feel and look better as we are still in the midst of these challenging times. There are many areas where accountability plays a big part in your weight loss and wellness journey. So, let’s break them down and ask yourself are you actually ticking all the boxes. Very often we can blame others for “making” us eat or drink something we actually hadn’t planned on having which can very often be the start of the slippery slope that we are all familiar with..Blaming others for our actions is an easy way of letting ourselves “off the hook “for our own accountability. Your choices are your decisions. Always remember when you point the finger at someone the rest of your fingers are pointing back at YOU. Accountability is all about keeping records. Calories It is a proven fact when you keep an account of what you eat and drink you are more aware and mindful of your calorie intake. By keeping a track of your calories you are less likely to “forget” the little things that can all add up in the end. Keeping track in a notebook or journal can show you what kind of foods you eat, when you eat and it can also identify your trigger times. There are also some great free apps you can download on your phone to keep track of your daily calorie intake. Goals Setting yourself mini goals can help you progress on your weight loss and wellness journey. When setting yourself a mini goal keep it “Specific” “Relevant“ and “Time Bound“. Keeping a weekly record of your mini goals can help your motivation and commitment to stick with it and know that it will be worth it. Remember the saying “Slow progress is better than No progress“ Weight Being accountable to somebody else with your weight other than yourself is very important as we do tend to leave ourselves off the hook quite easily at times. By doing this you are making a commitment not alone to yourself but to somebody else also. This is why the weekly check in with San Rita Wellness is so beneficial for our members. Being accountable to someone else gives you support also. You can lose weight for yourself but it doesn’t always have to be by yourself.. “ It will be a weight off your mind “

OUR WILD WORLD: By Eanna Ni Lamhna

From the birds and bees to our boglands and the ice caps Wildlife expert Eanna Ni Lamhna takes us on a tour of all things to do with our wonderful natural world: from a celebration of our fascinating birds and bees, and their powers of migration and pollination, to the thorny challenges of our time, such as climate change, sustainability and our carbon footprint. Her mantra is that learning about our wild world is not just for young children or David Attenborough fans, it is a lifelong necessary knowledge for our survival – and we need to open our eyes and our minds to the challenges that face us and our world into the future. The key is to find the balance between our needs and wants and the future of our precious planet and all its inhabitants. This brand new book raises, and discusses, questions such as; Why should we care about this natural world? Do we need and value the great outdoors now more than ever? But who wants spiders in their house? And what use are wasps anyway? Should we be worried by genetic engineering and windfarms? Biodiversity – what did it ever do for us? Does it mean the end of the world if the whales become extinct? Are global warming and climate change the same thing? What happened to the hole in the ozone layer? Is veganism the answer to sustainable food? What is carbon sequestration – just fancy words for trees? And why are carbon sinks so important? Is the mobile phone taking over our lives for good or for evil? How does a virus become a pandemic, and why?

We will be taking phone orders Monday to Saturday from 12 noon to 3pm. Please phone 068 21021. Also by email at woulfesbookshop@gmail.com

MOYVANE NATURE TRAIL CELEBRATE 25 YEARS This Easter Weekend Moyvane Development Association (MDA) will celebrate 25 years since work commenced (1996) on developing a Nature Trail Walk through the local overgrown woods.

A pathway was hacked through the undergrowth and rubbish was removed from both ends and a clear path was achieved over the weekend. Work continued by volunteers over the next number of weeks, clearing dykes, fencing and installing bridges, opening to the public for the first time on the June bank holiday weekend. This phase of the development was generously funded by North Kerry Walks. In 1998 1000 native hardwood saplings were planted, a number of these were planted by pupils from Murhur NS and by Fr. Michael O’Leary during National Tree Week. In 1999 500 Ash saplings were planted at the end of the Church Car Park field. In November ’99 the walk was awarded The North Kerry Walks Open Gate Trophy for being the best walk in North Kerry for the first time, receiving it a further three times since. The Walk was extended in 2001 around the GAA Pitch with the kind permission of the Community Sports Hall Committee, Mike Brosnan and the GAA. The walk had a big influence on Moyvane achieving the Best New Entry Award in the Tidy Towns Competition that year and a plaque celebrating this achievement is on display at the entrance to Murhur NS. In 2005 the walk was extended to the Lime Kiln where a foot bridge was erected and the Lime Kiln was restored with the kind permission of Pat & Bridie Hayes. In 2017 2.5 Ha of land donated by KCC, at the rear of Woodgrove, was planted with 1200 native hardwood saplings, with a path laid throughout, joining both woods. A further 1000 native saplings were added here in 2018. Saplings donated by KCC.


HIGH ACHIEVERS Congratulations to Patrick Kiely who was recently promoted to Professor in the School of Medicine at the University of Limerick. Patrick teaches across the Medical and Science programmes at the University. He is the leader of the University of Limerick Cancer Network and has a Cancer Research laboratory at the University. His younger brother Daniel lectures in Medicine at the University of Perth in Australia. Both are sons of Pat and Anne Kiely, Doonard Upper, Tarbert. JOHN F. LESLIE WOODLAND WALK / FAIRY TRAIL The Leslie family have adverted to the fact that in spite of erecting signs warning people not to park on the driveway leading to Tarbert House some people continue to park their cars while visiting the Fairy Trail with their children. With farm machinery using the driveway it is not safe or desirable to do so and would ask people to desist from so doing. The family are in discussion with Tarbert Development Association with a view to re-locating the Fairy Trail. This would involve a new location with access from the upper Back of the Hill road and from the first entrance on the Island road with car parking at the Bridewell. In the interim the Woodland walk and Fairy Trail remain closed as adverted to on the signage. SEANFHOCAIL NA SEACHTAINE Ní gach lá a bhíonn Donal Bui ag pósadh - Literally it isn’t every day that Dónal Buí gets married, to quote the late Dan Keane, ‘you must seize the opportunity of a lifetime in the lifetime of the opportunity’. Ni bhailionn cloch reatha caonach’ - A rolling stone gathers no moss. ‘Ceap id’ aigne go bhfuilir go maith agus beidh tú nios fearr’ - f you think that you are well, you’ll feel much better. Always think positive. TARBERT GAA DRAW The next GAA 500 Monthly Draw will take place on Easter Bank Holiday Monday 5 April at 8.45pm . Tickets can be purchased at the Post Office, online at www.tarbertgaa.ie or by contacting committee members Sean Finucane, Shane Sheahan, Kieran Foley, Fergal O’Connor, Wesley Wren, Eoin Diggins, Joe Coolahan or Marie Mulvihill.

MDA received generous sponsorship from Eirgrid in 2018 and completed laying a tarmac surface on both sections of nature trail walk. Tarmac was laid on a path to the Kiln in 2019 with the assistance of a grant from KCC Community Support Fund and sponsorship from Gas Networks Irl. In 2021 with a further grant from Eirgrid and some MDA funds the remaining sections of the walk was completed with a tarmac surface. Over the years seats have been provided throughout the walk with kind sponsorship from KCC and MDA funds. A beautiful viewing area with seating is located with views of Knockanore, Kerry Head and Mt, Brandon. Information Boards and directional signs are provided throughout the walk sponsored by NEKD and Leader funding. Further information boards and lecterns on biodiversity are to be erected in the walk over the coming months, also generously sponsored by Eirgrid as part of their recent Community Sponsorship Fund. In National Tree Week this year, as we celebrate 25 years, 200 saplings were planted in the new plantation. These were kindly sponsored by KCC (100) and Analog Devices Limerick (100) encouraging their “Trees on the Land” Green initiative. Thanks to all our generous Sponsors over the years and all those who helped with any of the maintenance work, Volunteers, SSE Community Scheme, Community Employment Schemes participants and members of MDA. The Nature Trail and Village Walk has been a great asset to the local community, especially during this current Covid pandemic. It is a great local amenity and a huge benefit to the people of the parish and North Kerry. We hope to be able to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the development of the walk once Covid restrictions allow. In the meantime, we encourage people to use the walk to celebrate this amenity especially over this Easter weekend.

Many thanks to all who contribute to our weekly Club Lotto. The Club cannot emphasise enough the importance of our members promoting the Club Lotto among family, friends and work colleagues. The Covid-19 restrictions have seriously hampered our fundraising and income. The Lotto is now the critical and only source of funds for the Club. Your continued support is greatly appreciated. COVID GAA UPDATE The powers that be in Croke Park have thanked all clubs for their on-going patience in relation to the continued enforced delay in the resumption of GAA activities. They have provided us with a brief up-date on the position with regard to covid-19. They say that 2021 has already felt like a long year without any on field activity to sustain us. However, the reality of the pandemic and the continuing spread of the virus means that we are likely to have to persevere for a little longer before anything like our normal level of activity can resume. In terms of the immediate future, it is expected that the Government will publish any proposed changes to the current restrictions by the end of this week and they will communicate again with our Clubs and Counties at that point in terms of the implications for GAA activity. In the interim, they again reiterate that the GAA has not decided on what competitions may or may not be facilitated in any revised national fixture programme for 2021. As they have stated previously, such decisions will be a factor of how much time is ultimately available to them, both for an inter county season and for the broader participation levels that will be necessary for a meaningful club season at both adult and underage level. Let’s hope the rumours that children will be allowed to return in the coming weeks hold true. We urge all younger players to keep practising their drills every day as return to play cannot be too far away. Players should especially focus on their skills. Lots of material can be found online especially on Youtube also the Club Coaches have sent links for training sessions on line. PRAYING SUNDAY MASS ONLINE As we gather at home for our Sunday Mass celebrations online, these are some suggestions that might help our prayer-time: Create a sacred space where you will sit to attend Mass e.g. using a crucifix or candle or icon, just like you might do if preparing for a house Mass. 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. We are reminded of the words of Jesus - ‘Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in their midst’. We remember that Jesus Christ is present in our homes as we pray at Mass together.

Club of the week by Robert Bunyan.

Ballydonoghue has a very proud record in the history of the Association and in fact football was played in the Parish long before the G A A was founded. There were many teams within the Parish at various stages before the present club as it exists today, came into being; teams like, Glouria, Gunsborough, Tullamore, Guhard, Ballyconry,Lisselton and Dromlought. battled it out at that particular time. Without doubt the club has had many highlights with plenty to celebrate with their huge amount of success at club level down the years along with all those players representing their County (as listed below); Another special occasion happened 46 years ago for the club and its loyal supporters; (1975) when the Tom Markem All Ireland Minor Cup resided in the Parish for its twelve months period. Certainly Ballydonoghue club has terrific new facilities in Coolard and has acquired a healthy club status in the last two years and only for the lockdown many more new healthy initiatives would have been introduced. It is located in the hearth of North Kerry and amazingly it is bordered by Ballyduff, Beale, Asdee, Ballylongford, Moyvane, Clounmacon, and Listowel, thus the close association with both Shannon and Feale Rangers. In 2015 the Ballydonoghue minor team won the County Minor league Div 1 the first North Kerry team to do so.They beat the likes of Dr Crokes, Dingle, Kerins O Rahillys, Austin Stacks and Spa on the way to a

Subs, Paddy Kissane, Danny Power, Joseph Lynch, Stephen Mason, Michael Dee, Michael Gogarty, Liam Kissane, Alvaro Nunez Alonso, Shane Kennelly,(suspended), Micheál Foley (injured).When will a North Kerry club at any level defeat one of the above big clubs not to mind all five. The management was Denis Lynch, P J Foley, Martin Sheehy, Pa Foley, Anthony Shanahan. 2015 was a very historic year indeed. Ballydonoghue won the North Kerry Senior championship for the first time in 1945,and were in the finals of 1946,49,50,51,52,53,59,61,92,2016,17,18,winning also in 46,49,50,52,59,92,2016,and 2017.Their great era in the late forties and early fifties saw them in five finals in a row. Many players from that

era would also have played minor, junior, U’21, and senior for Kerry. In that time players from the club would have played for Shannon Rangers, Feale Rangers, and North Kerry. Several club officers have also served on the North Kerry Board, and County Board. The club has served the district, and the county well with Referees namely; Eamon Diggins, Joe Riordan, Mike Flavin, Sean Carr, Eamon Moran, Edward Diggins, Eric O Connor, Paddy Henchy, Johnny Bunyan, Darragh O Shea, Gus Cremin, Mike Joy, Robert Bunyan, Pa Foley, John Joy The following from the club have played for county teams.

But, what does all this mean to me? Well, Jesus’s death and resurrection is at the heart of the Christian faith. It was God’s plan to restore a broken world to Himself. It cost Him His Son Jesus, whom He loved. Jesus took away our sins and purchased Heaven for us by His death and Resurrection.

Our debt is PAID IN FULL by Him. It’s not enough to know that Jesus died for our sins. If Jesus had remained in the grave His sacrifice on the cross would mean absolutely nothing. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15:14 “If Christ has not been raised your faith is in vain....your faith is futile and you are still in your sins “.

Jesus’s resurrection marks the first time in history that someone rose from the dead NEVER TO DIE AGAIN. That’s what scripture means when it says Jesus conquered death. He died once, He was raised from the dead and He will never die again.

In the gospel of John 14:19 Jesus promises His followers “Because l live you will also live.” Jesus went through His death and Resurrection for you and me! He loves us that much. He assures us in Roman’s 8:37 “that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ, neither death nor life.” The resurrection of Jesus brings us this security, so now we don’t have to fear death anymore. It brings us sure and certain hope of eternal life with God that nothing and no one else on earth can give us. Phillipians 3:21 “He will take our weak mortal bodies and make them like his own glorious body using the same power by which He will bring everything under His control.” Jesus, Son of the One, True, and Living God cannot lie. His promise to each of us is “If you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that God the Father raised Jesus from the dead you will live.” Roman’s 10:9 No other religious leader predicted His death and Resurrection, based His claims about Himself and His teachings on that prediction, and then kept that promise. How could I “reject so great a salvation” Hebrews 2:3

This is the Good news. Its more than good. It’s incredible and its true. Without the Resurrection there is no gospel, no hope for us at all. We would die and that would be the end for us.

But the fact that Jesus has conquered death means that believers have also been granted victory over death. We will die once but like Jesus, we will also be raised from the dead and then we will live forever more in Heaven. How magnificent is that.

This time I ask you this special one, (mention favour). Take it dear heart of Jesus and place it within your heart where your father sees it. Then in his merciful eyes it will become your own favour not mine. Amen. Say this prayer three times for three days and your favour will be granted. Never been known to fail.
