“We Are Only Children”


Earlier today.

In Grange, Tullow, Co Carlow…

St Brigid’s National School tweetz:

“Some very ‘persuasive writing’ from 4th class as to why they should play in the sneachta.”


Also, in fairness.

Let them out for pity’s sake.


Meanwhile, the Status Yellow snow/ice warning for the whole country continues until midnight tonight, while a Status Yellow wind warning continues for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry until 8pm tonight.

Caution urged as snow/ice warning in effect (RTÉ)

      Indeed! My daughter was educated in the US and they no longer teach cursive or any form of joined-up writing. I think it is a pity, as it is beautiful to read, and almost makes up for the misspelt words

        If I remember correctly, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series contains some panels where cursive is used and this led to US readers complaining that they couldn’t read it. Heaven help them should they ever need to read their Constitution.

    We need an update later in the day. Did they get let out? Did Katie get detention? Were snowmen mad, or snowballs thrown? Did it all melt by sos?
    Shall we ever know?

    I pass a school where a stack of cones and a roll of red-white tape sits ready to fence-off the playground at the first sign of frost: Principals can be nervous in these litigious times!
