At this time of year, the line of the Christmas Carol,
A ray of hope flickers in the sky,
comes to mind.
At this time of year, at dawn on the winter solstice, a beam of sunlight illuminates the floor of the chamber at Newgrange.
A ray of hope, this time from the CSO: The economy technically emerged from recession in the third quarter, according to new data from the Central Statistics Office (Source Irish Times 17th December).
This news from the CSO as the year draws to a close, is very welcome.
As 2009 draws to a close, we here at SQT thank you for your support in 2009 and sincerely wish you all a good 2010.
Nollag Shona agus Athbhliain faoi shonas is faoi rath.
A ray of hope flickers in the sky
A tiny star lights up way up high
All across the land dawns a brand new morn
This comes to pass when a child is born
