Your Greystones Week


Some of GG’s more astute readers may have noticed already, but, we’re slowly emerging in and out of lockdown, people…  

So we can hopefully kick Covid-19’s ass, self-isolation has long been the soup of the day – and that means our usually jam-packed Greystones calendar is looking very different today.

And with the restrictions now limiting us all to keeping within our own counties, now is the perfect time to check out the beautiful trails out there. Then again, our guide does feature lots of shots, and video, if you want to go for a virtual walk.

Talking of lots of shots and videos, there’s also our extensive archives of vintage photographs, histories and interviews with the good, the bad and the incredibly smart to work your way through. Only took us eight years to put together, and we’re far from finished putting all the jigsaw pieces of Greystones’ colourful past together. You can map your journey right here.

And do think about your neighbours who are trying to keep their businesses alive during this difficult time – from shops and restaurants to theatres and beauty shops. Those who can have moved online – so, go join them there. You’ve certainly got the time.

We’ll be keeping an eye on how the town comes out of hibernation over the coming weeks, as the lockdown hopefully opens the door for normality once again. In the meantime, you can check out all the takeaways currently keeping us fed and watered right here.

If you need a little spiritual guidance, you can always go deep with Luisne, Kilcoole’s spirituality haven, right here.

We’ve also put together a list of local volunteers, free online classes, etc, right about here, and 10Things To Do About Nothing To Do right here.

Also, check on any vulnerable neighbours. Pretend they’re your dad, or your mum. Only, these OAPs won’t keep reminding you of all your bad choices.

There are also a number of groups and individuals now ready and willing to help the elderly in our community. And you can join them. Speaking of which, the number for Alone, the charity helping the elderly living on their own, is 0818222024.

We’re also putting up music mixes regularly on GG, which might just help past the time, with a little singing, a little dancing, maybe even a miniature party or two

You can keep up with what’s going on in regard to Covid-19 in the town right about here.

In the meantime, here’s a rather scaled down calendar. And do think twice about going anywhere that there may be a crowd. Or a queue…
