Photo: Cian ReinhardtTHE NAMES of 253 women who lived and died behind the walls of the Good Shepherd Convent in Limerick echoed across a snowy Mount St Lawrence cemetery last Sunday.In what was the sixth year of the remembrance ceremony, people gathered to share poems, to lay flowers and to bear witness to the memory of the women buried in a mass grave.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Camilla O’Donoghue, one of the event organisers, quoted the lyrics from Joni Mitchell’s ‘The Magdalene Laundries’.“Peg O’Connell died today, she was a cheeky girl, a flirt. They just stuffed her in a hole. Surely to God, you’d think at least some bells should ring.“One day I’m going to die here too and they will plant me in the dirt, like some lame bulb that never blooms come any spring. Not any spring.”Ms O’Donoghue said this was for “all the Peg O’Connells” buried in Magdalene graves around the country.“We’re so sorry we didn’t listen, and nobody heard, and may your souls rest in peace.”She thanked Cllr John Gilligan whom she said “played a huge part” in having the names inscribed on the monument.As the snowfall intensified, Cllr Gilligan said it was good to see people attend on a cold and wet day because “these people came from a very cold place”.“We can only hope in our hearts that some place along the line, maybe some little ray of sunshine entered into their lives.“The idea of having their names inscribed here was very important to me. When you take a look around, all these gravestones are not to mark the fact a person died. They are to mark the fact that a person lived; they had a name. This is now a sacred place.“They are here, we remember every single one of them, we remember what they went through. They are now part and parcel of us. This is no longer a burial pit, this is a sacred place and we should always remember that.”After the names of the Limerick Magdalenes were read out, Marian O’Rourke recited one of her poems from her collection about the Magdalene Laundries.

Facebook Facebook WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter By Jon Zimney – May 29, 2020 1 409 Twitter Google+ (Photo supplied/Thor Industries) More people are buying motor homes and camping equipment as the state continues to loosen coronavirus restrictions.Campgrounds have been allowed to reopen for almost a week and Bob Martin, CEO of Thor Industries in Elkhart, told Inside Indiana Business he believes the surge in sales they are seeing is because of the sense of safety motor homes offer while also being able to get out and do something other than just staying home.“People that like an RV typically like the fact that they can take their own food, they can eat healthier, they can cook their own food, they know who’s cooked it, their bed has their own linens, their own comfy pillow, their towels,” said Martin. “Many of these people are very new customers that probably didn’t even consider this lifestyle back in January or February.”Martin said dealerships that sell his products are “feeling the traffic” of more people coming in considering buying an RV.With more people getting out into the community again after being cooped up in their homes for two months, Elkhart County health experts are now a little concerned about another outbreak of the coronavirus.A New York Times article published this week said Elkhart County now has the 10th highest infection rate in the country.County Commissioner Suzie Weirick told WSBT right now they are expected to double the number of Hoosiers infected every 12 days at the current rate of coronavirus tests coming back positive in Elkhart County. Granted, the number of people tested in Elkhart County has gone up significantly in the last three weeks.Martin said his business has been working a reduced capacity in order to limit contact between employers, employees, and customers. But, he said they will increase capacity as needed in order to meet demand. Google+ RV, camping sales expected to rise amid pandemic CoronavirusIndianaLocalNews Pinterestlast_img read more

first_img 71SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Financial institutions (FIs) are arguably under more pressure than ever to ensure a consistency of service and handle poor consumer experiences in an effective manner. At the same time, they are under pressure to expand their offerings across multiple channels in an effort to meet ever-changing consumer needs and expectations.Key to navigating this pressure is better understanding consumers and utilizing the information effectively across the board. This is where harnessing the power of Big Data is comes in. A recent Credit Union Times article highlights four basic data-collection fields community FIs can and should tap for a deeper understanding of their consumers.Review current Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems — The value of collected data is only as good as its accuracy. Evaluate the CRM systems your FI has in place to determine their strength in gathering “clean” data for targeted and segmented marketing efforts. Don’t forget to loop in compliance.

Best-selling author of hit children’s book “A Caribbean Journey from A to Y (Read and Discover What Happened to the Z)” embarks on his own Caribbean journey.

first_img Share Share Sharing is caring! LocalNews Best-selling author of hit children’s book “A Caribbean Journey from A to Y (Read and Discover What Happened to the Z)” embarks on his own Caribbean journey. by: – December 15, 2011 Caribbean author and New York resident Mario Picayo will (almost) follow the text of his popular and best-selling title “A Caribbean Journey from A to Y (Read and Discover What Happened to the Z)” as he travels from A (Anguilla and Antigua) to S (Saba, St. Thomas, St. John, St. Kitts, St. Vincent) on a month long trip through the islands. Picayo is presenting his book and donating other children’s titles by Caribbean authors to several libraries in the region.The journey will take him to a total of seventeen islands, where he will meet with librarians, educators, and members of the Ministries of Education. The final stop will be a return to his roots when the Cuban-born author joins hundreds of writers, and readers, at the Havana International Book Fair. This twenty-first edition of the Fair is dedicated to the nations of the Caribbean. “A Caribbean Journey from A to Y (Read and Discover What Happened to the Z)” has been a best-seller for the last four years, and among the top selling books on Amazon.com’s Caribbean Children Books category. It was selected as Commended Title by the prestigious Americas Award and a copy, dedicated to Sasha and Malia Obama, was presented to Michelle Obama by the First Lady of the U.S. Virgin Islands in 2009.Silvio Torres-Saillant, author of “An Intellectual History of the Caribbean” wrote in his review of the book: “A Caribbean Journey from A to Y describes insular portions of the Caribbean region in a manner that truly teaches and delights the child reader for whom the book is intended. . . I can think of no better book for children to begin the lifelong adventure of knowing the Caribbean.”Picayo explained that the main purpose of his trip is to introduce his book to new audiences, meet local authors and illustrators for possible publication, and donate a set of Caribbean children’s books published by the company he directs, Editorial Campana, to the National Libraries. The books are signed by each author and dedicated to the children of the respective island.The author and publisher also wants to speak about an ongoing literary project started five years ago in the U.S. Virgin Islands with great success. It involves the creation of high quality, fully illustrated children’s books by local authors, which are given to every school-age child on the islands at no charge to them.The initiative addresses, and tries to remedy, the lack of access to Caribbean literature for children in the region, the little opportunities available for local authors to publish their work, the difficulties of inter-island distribution, and the high price of books. “It’s been a dream of mine to do a trip like this”, Picayo expressed. “We need to exchange books so that Caribbean kids understand early on the historical, cultural and geographical bonds that unite us. I envision a near future where Caribbean children can access a large range of books written by authors and illustrators that understand them because they were once children on these same islands. We need to get to know each other better.”Picayo’s first stop will be his old home of fifteen years, St Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands where thousands of copies of “The Lesson Box” by Tregenza A. Roach and illustrated by Karen L. Samuel, will be given to the children of the Territory as a gift from the Office of the Governor. Picayo is the editor and coordinator of the publishing aspect of the project.Meet the author at the following free event:Children’s Reading & Caribbean Book presentation at the Roseau Public Library on 20th December, 2011 at 11am.
