From Carlow Streams
There is a long and rich oral tradition of song and story in
Carlow though much has been lost, which is why the creators
and collaborators of Carlow Streams are passionate about preserving
what we have, and ask for anyone with knowledge of local history
and traditions contact them at www.fromcarlowstreams.ie or
the Carlow Tourism website. Alternatively, contact Dave Barron
or 087 2204488.
The project was conceived by local man Dave Barron who has
a deep interest in the Irish language and folklore and the
of the Rambling House where culture was passed from one generation
to the next.
Support for the initiative has come from Carlow Tourism,
Creative Ireland Carlow, Carlow Museum and Carlow County
Library, along with the families of Luke Morrissey, Willie
White, Jim Nolan, Seamus Murphy and MC Nolan. To date, Dave
has gathered material for the site from a disparate group
of collectors around the county whose contributions are included
in this cultural website. These include Danny Browne, Carlow
Historical and Archaeological Society (CHAS), Tony Malone,
Eddie McDonald, the late Luke Morrissey, the late Seamus
Murphy, the late Willie White, John Candy, Dermot Mulligan,
John Shortall, Seamus Dunne and Michael Rice. The list continues

Robot for Clonegal
picturesque village of Clonegal, Co. Carlow has a new resident
- one who has a very distinct look. Its arms are conveyor
rollers from a quarry; its feet are the bucket teeth from
a digger. It has bolts for fingers and an engine for a
stomach. Its eyebrows are wire brushes, its hair comprises
motorbike chains and its cheery smile is thanks to the
roller from a conveyor belt.
This smiling metal man, who carries a suitcase, is completely made from recycled
scrap parts and was created by Liam Birmingham, a second-year mechanical engineering
student from Institute of Technology Carlow. And on Wednesday 13th June Liam,
alongside his engineering lecturers Dr. Anthony Nolan and Dr. Cathal Nolan, presented
the smiling ‘Tin Man’ to the Clonegal Tidy Towns committee. He will
reside in the square opposite the church in Clonegal village where his suitcase
will store used batteries as part of Clonegal’s ongoing efforts to “reduce,
reuse and recycle”.
Pictured above L to R: Marie Byrne, Tony Jackson, Liam Birmingham Carlow IT (creator
of the robot), Dr. Anthony Nolan Carlow IT,

31st January at 7.00pm – Poetry reading with Joe
Neal - Award-winning actor and poet Joe Neal
will share his 'tuned thoughts' on the night. He says
of writing poetry: "Putting a poem together is a
very strange exercise of thought: an idea drifts into
the mind and grabs your attention. It chases after words,
setting them into a kind of melody. I would call this
'tuned thoughts' - and that may be a good definition
of a poem." Joe, who lives near Castlebridge, will
be introducing poems from his newly-published sixth collection
- Rossetti's Wombat. He recently returned from an arts
council bursary tour of New England and last year won
the Anthony Cronin International Poetry Award for his
poem Allegheny Man which, he says, was prompted by a
visit to the Allegheny Mountains in West Virginia where
he discovered a ruined cabin and tried to imagine the
life of the person who once lived there. Booking
