Hallo SpaceboyJuly 21, 2021
Thank You For The DaysJuly 22, 2021
Some of GG’s more astute readers may have noticed already, but, we’re slowly coming out of lockdown, people…
Here’s hoping we’ve kicked Covid-19’s ass, self-isolation having long been the soup of the day – and that means our usually jam-packed Greystones calendar is having to rebuild itself.
And with the restrictions still limiting us all to keeping within six feet of strangers, 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 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.
Do your tummy and your town a favour. And don’t forget our incredible restaurants and cafés knocked off their feet by the lockdowns. Go give them some love 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. And WCC’s Level 5 public service hours are here.
So, you know, we can all join virtual hands and make contact with the living.
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 life 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…
And there’s plenty for kids too, including the mighty Squirrel’s Scramble adventure park in Killruddery.
You can keep up with what’s going on in regard to Covid-19 in the town right about here.
And always remember – stay safe, stay silly.
In the meantime, here’s a rather scaled down calendar.
Given the constant changes due to lockdowns, do check any event you’re interested in beforehand…
