Jim Hurley's Nature Trail The story goes that in 1911, a guest at a wedding at Castle Forbes, Co Longford, brought a present of a box of live American Grey Squirrels. No doubt the foreign animals imported from England were a great talking point and conversation piece among the wedding guests.

Calodagh McCumiskey's Wellbeing & Meditation On average, we sleep 20 percent less than we did 100 years ago. Some like to boast of burning the candle at both ends. Successful people often brag about how little they sleep - up late and up early. But over time this results in burn-out at best and can have even more disastrous consequences.

Andrew Collyer's Practical Gardening Any plant that would grace us with flowers during winter is to be cherished. Any plant that not only flowers in winter but also gives us scent to boot should be beloved. And a surprising number of these dark and dank day flowerers do just that. Many winter flowering plants simply wouldn't cut the mustard when held in comparison to their warm blooded summer counterparts. But they do flower in winter and this does make them all the more...
Life Skills with Emily Hurley-Wilkinson Two monks are returning to their monastery after it rains. They reach a swollen river and in front of them is an extremely beautiful lady in a delicate silk kimono, distressed because she is unable to cross the river by herself. So, the older monk scoops her up, carries her safely to the other side and the two monks continue on their way in silence.
Life Skills - Emily Hurley-Wilkinson For many people January can be a gloomy old month. The festivities are over and the days are short and grey and spring seems a long way off. But what would happen if you decided to get happy today, to just make a conscious decision to be more positive.
Conor Nelligan, County Heritage Officer 2016 was a truly memorable year from a commemorative perspective, with over 500 events organised by more than 200 community groups within the County of Cork. 2017, too will also be a busy year from a commemorative perspective, as indeed will be the next number of years.
Pete Wedderburn - Animal Doctor The start of a new year is a great symbolic opportunity to start again. The old year - and the old way of doing things - is over. By new habits, starting now, you can make an almost perfect future become reality.
Andrew Collyer - Practical Gardening As we crawl out from under the wrapping paper and tinsel and emerge into the New Year armed with the best intentions in the world, promised to ourselves for 2017.

Jim Hurley When I was a young lad, one of the things I spent my pocket money on was buying the Eagle comic.
