Happy Holidays From

As 2011 draws to a close we would like to wish all our readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for 2012. It has been a difficult and trying year for Thurles, and for many Irish people, but it is only right that we try to forget our troubles, at least during the holidays.

I’m sure if we all stop and think, we would discover that have a lot we can be thankful for this Christmas. The Tipperary saying ‘Health is Wealth’ has never been more true, indeed it was Mahatma Gandhi who originally coined the phase when he said “It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver”.

I have come across a couple of great videos that celebrate the joy of the Christmas season and I would like to share them with you.

The first video is a terrific idea for people to do over the holidays, especially if you have friends or family abroad, why not send them a Video Card! This would be great fun to do over the Christmas with your family, maybe get a few of them together and record them singing a song. These days this could even be done using a mobile phone! The video can be uploaded to a video site like for free, and then shared with all your family and friends by sending them the link to the video. It’s also very easy to share it on Facebook so all your friends can see!

This next video is an inspiring tale, it is the true story behind the Christmas carol ‘Silent Night’

Have a great Christmas everyone!
