A night to reflect on my family history – and the wonders that will live on after me

As we sat down to fill out our census forms, I thought about how long my family has lived in this county.

Last Sunday was a special night. I had spent the day in the sheepfold tending to newborn lambs and working the land as we know it. I had walked the fields of the home farm and our various plots of land in Kilnacarrow and Clonfin, looking out for sheep, cattle and horses. They are the animals I share my life with now, their seasons are my seasons now. February not only marked the beginning of Celtic spring, but also the start of the lambing season. March was manure season and in April the stocks are brought to the fields according to the age-old ritual of agriculture.
