Old Days in Aughnasheelin: No wonder that my eyes yet fill when I those days recall, While lingering at the old Scutch Mill to view the Waterfall; Famed Pullinass you can’t surpass, bedecked with beauty rare, In all the land no scene so grand as nature planted there. And all the boys for miles around who loved the Gaelic game Would gather on the football ground when Sunday evening came, And ladies fair assembled there for recreation sake, So graceful shone – just like the swans – on Kiltybarden lake. Read all of this beautiful poem in ‘Leitrim Treasure’ which will be launched in the Bush Hotel, Carrick-on-Shannon, on Wednesday, Aug. 7th at 8.30pm following a talk by Mickey Harte on “The Value of Community”. Admission free. Refreshments served. Everyone welcome.
