Seachtain 2013 Esopus, NY
I would normally be putting up a picture of the beautiful scenery that is around the Marist Brothers Retreat, but while attending the week I noticed a picture that we pass in the hallway many times every day. It made me think about how many are no longer with us and how our lives have changed over the past 12 years. Ethel would be very proud of how we have all helped carry on her work promoting the Gaeilge.
At the beginning of the week, many of us wished we knew a couple of Irish songs. By the end of the week, Siobhán helped us do just that.
There is always a class for what you’re looking for during the week. Daltaí works very hard to keep everyone busy.
I want to learn the Sweets of May, Noel. I’m not too sure there are enough people here right now for the Waves of Tory.
We all know so much more about the Women of Ireland thanks to Michael. His lectures are always a highlight of the week.
During the week I came across one of the residents of the woods! Do you think that the snake has been slithering in the neighborhood in the hope that he can pick up some Gaeilge?
If the Gaeilgeoirí work on it they could be the next winners of America’s Got Talent.
The game of the week was Jenga. Everyone was queued up to play each evening.
Someone had to lose. Good game, Éamonn!
