December 26th - St. Stephen's Day 2021
Thankfully, I was able get out to the coast, on what was a great day, weather-wise, but thinking of our unfortunate neighbours in County Wexford, who experienced severe flooding yesterday in some areas, with some roads being washed away and people having to be rescued from their homes. Here in County Waterford, the weather today was excellent, resulting in very large numbers being able to go out and enjoy the countryside.

Naomh Colmcille/St. Columba, one of Ireland's most famous Christian missionaries, was born on this day, December 7th, 1,500 years ago. For more about him, Iona Abbey, the Waterford connection and the Battle of the Book, see my post of November 8th last.
This window was the work of William Wilson, Scotland, famous stained glass artist.
Addendum 8th Dec. 2021: If you are a TG4 fan, you will possibly have seen the hour long documentary, with sub-titles, re Colmcille last night, which was entitled - 'An Naomh Dána'.
A great surprise was to hear that St.Otteran/Naomh Oran, one of Waterford's three patron saints, was Colmcille's uncle!
