Annie Sullivan was born on 14th April 1866, in Massachusetts. Her parents were Irish immigrants though their point of origin is unknown. It was a hard upbringing with both mother and father being poverty-stricken and illiterate. Annie contracted trachoma when she was four years old, leaving her significantly visually impaired. Two younger children of the five in the family died and her mother perished from tuberculosis when Annie was eight years of age. While her surviving siblings were sent to live with relatives she was left to look after her father, who was reputedly an angry, abusive man.
To mark the height of the planting season we are holding a seed swap at the Dingle Market Friday 11th of April, so please bring your spare vegetable seeds to swap for some varieties that you don't have.
The date has been announced for the 3rd, now annual “Kerry County Clean Up” day which is sponsored by entirely KWD Recycling with the support of the Kerry County Council, Chambers of commerce ,Kerry county Board ,An Taisce and the Department of Environment. This very worthy one day event has grown from strength to strength in the last 2 years and organisers are hoping that this year will be as successful, if not more than the last number of years. The aim is to pick up the litter from all our main roads around Kerry, in an attempt to increase tourism by making a good impression to all who visit the county as well as for everyone living locally. Last year more than 900 volunteers collected over 6,500 bags off Kerry roads. The benefits of this were noticeable immediately.
As well as making a huge difference to the beauty and scenery of Kerry, its also a great way to get local communities and groups together for a good cause and its easy to get involved, please show your support and log onto www.kwdcountycleanup.com where you can register your group and order a free “Clean Up Day Pack” which includes reflective vests, refuse sacks, event posters and information on how to organise your group. You can also follow progress or get information on the “Kerry County Clean Up” Facebook page.
