The ubiquitous nature of it, you know it’s for everyone, it belongs to everyone.”Mary Louise credits her parents for her love and success in music.“My phenomenally committed, and visionary parents, Marie and Tom Bowe in Newtown Stradbally immersed us in music and dance. We were afforded absolutely every opportunity going.“This is at a time during the 80s before the likes of Laois School of Music was conceived when Dublin was this distant faraway place.”Mary Louise was involved in both traditional Irish and Classical music.“We were always dual players so for me personally, I was always involved in the classical world and traditional Irish music.“First Irish Trad music through the fiddle, some vamping on the piano, and classical music on the piano initially and then I switched from violin to the viola when I was 16.“I was always more immersed in classical music. My parents drove us up and down to Dublin to the Academy.“At the same time I was always involved in the local Comhaltas branches of Portarlington with Bob Gleeson and Raheen with Eilish Egan.“I was particularly involved in the Fleadhanna, reaching the pinnacle of our successes, both for under 12 and under 15 when we won the All Ireland Ceili band, with the likes of Joe Grant over in Raheen steering us all the way, so great memories, leaving an indelible footprint on my life.“I suppose my first musical memory was actually with a local fiddler, a beautiful lady called Molly Lawler, from Timahoe, and my first memory is actually in the living room in our house in Newtown.“I think we’ve the tapes or the cassettes, still with the screeches and scratches of us in the garage!”Mary Louise says her “world opened up” from playing music at the Royal Academy of Music from five to 22.For Mary Louise, the contrasting disciplines, Classical and Traditional, didn’t really collide until she met her husband.“They never really collided, or aligned until I met my husband, Martin, who’s a phenomenal box player from Brosna in Kerry in the heart of the Sliabh Luachra tradition.”Mary Louise believes her experiences playing when she was younger have influenced her teaching style.“It’s different now. In music education in Ireland today there’s a lot more openness and acceptance and a value of a diversity of musics and a real hunger and thirst out there for experimentation and fusion.“I think there’s a space now for all of those music genres so I’m very conscious of that when I’m teaching my own students and even with my own two daughters, to find their own path.”Mary Louise has been teaching since she was 15.“As soon as I had my teaching diplomas, and licentiates in viola and piano and the TTC, a diploma in traditional Irish music teaching, I was always at home teaching at the weekends.“I had a small music school in Stradbally with individual and group teaching, and I also taught in a beautiful community called Luggacurren up by the windy gap.“Coincidentally, it’s an area that my father’s family came from in Wolfhill, so it also had extra meaning for me.”Mary Louise also enjoyed great success with Music for Fun summer camps she set up in Portlaoise.“I had lots of support from the community as well, like the credit union, the Laois Arts office and the Dunamaise Arts Centre.“So, from there I was always very conscious of giving back to the community, even though that’s really a cliche expression.“While I was always performing, I was always drawn to the education side of things, hence I went on to study music and Irish in Trinity and did my H-dip to become an Irish and Music secondary school teacher, starting in Mount Temple Comprehensive School, moving on then to Our Ladies School in Templeogue, and then ending up then in Belvedere where I set up a windband and an orchestral program.“I’m huge believer and advocate for the transformative effects of schools and the role that schools and arts education should play in the lives of our kids, irrespective of their class or their geographic location.“I really don’t believe that music should be seen as this peripheral piece of fluff, an extra in the margins preserved for the excess.“I really do believe that the school has a duty of care, and should music should lie at the heart of the curriculum, as part of a holistic education so I was always kind of had a burning sense that I wanted to do something about that.“After five years in Belvedere and with support from principal Jerry Foley, Mary Louise wanted to study more to be a “better teacher and to learn more.”“I went off to New York to study a doctorate in music education. So I kind of ruptured the comforts, I had a permanent job I was 30 years of age, rupturing that takes a bit of courage because I was a real homebird.“My dissertation actually looked at post primary music education to look at the inequities that exist across schools across Ireland. I surveyed the entire cohort of post primary school principals and basically, I found in my research that one in four post primary principals didn’t opt for music, as opposed to primary schools.“I had a really great response rate of 59%, present, and I’m really passionate about that. That highlighted the inequities that exist amongst our schooling system.”When Mary Louise returned home from New York, she took her current position in DCU.“I’m very privileged now to be teaching those preparing to be primary school teachers and post primary teachers.”You can listen to the full interview with Dr Mary Louise Bowe on Soundcloud below or on Apple Podcasts or Spotify. The LaoisToday Podcast is brought to you in association with iCashco, market leaders in automated cash handling.SEE MORE – Laois man set to lead Irish Defence Forces on latest peace-keeping mission in the Lebanon Twitter WhatsApplast_img read more

Special Shells Used to “Maximize Chaos”

The South Korean military authorities have been examining around 20 unexploded shells from the attack, and a high official released the results of the first analysis yesterday, saying, “They have turned out to be a special kind of bomb which can penetrate concrete and maximize the resulting flames.” He explained further, “When this bomb explodes, it has the effect of both killing and destroying concrete facilities through intense heat and high pressure.” Intelligence authorities believe that North Korea has had this bomb in its arsenal since approximately 1985. The official said, “The artillery shells North Korea fired at Yeonpyeong Island resemble ‘ThermoBaric’ ones,” and added, “It seems that North Korea has used these special bombs in order to maximize chaos.”In a National Defense Committee of the National Assembly meeting on Wednesday, lawmaker Song Young Sung previously asserted that the shells she has seen used in CCTV video taken at the time of the attack were bunker busters. “Monitoring footage of bombs over Yeonpyeong Island, I am 100% convinced that they were bunker busters,” Song claimed, explaining that the double explosions she could see are a feature of such bombs.

Brown, said that all is in place for the torch run, which is in its 15th year.He informed that the 10-hour run will start at 10:00 a.m. at the Croydon Estate in Catadupa, which is the birthplace of Sam Sharpe.The torch will arrive at the historic Sam Sharpe Square at about 3:00 p.m., where it will be received by the Mayor of Montego Bay, Councillor Glendon Harris, then on to Tulloch Castle in Kensington, where a civic ceremony and concert will be held.“The torch run takes us through a number of free villages, which were set up subsequent to the abolition of slavery in 1834,” Mr. Brown informed.The ceremony, set to begin at 8:00 p.m., will feature talent unearthed from the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission’s (JCDC) Big Stage earlier this year, and  performances of traditional folk forms including Gerreh. The evening will also feature the Fab 5 band in concert.The function will be highlighted by the symbolic lighting of the trash house at midnight.It is documented that the burning of a trash house of the Tulloch Castle Estate and the subsequent burning of Kensington Great House signalled the start of the rebellion.The flames and smoke were visible for miles, and sparked responses from slaves across 40 plantations in St. James, Trelawny, Hanover, Westmoreland and St. Elizabeth.The rebellion involved some 50,000 slaves throughout the island, and the inquisition that followed resulted in the execution of approximately 500 slaves, including Sam Sharpe.The 1831 rebellion helped to influence the abolition of slavery and the push for full emancipation, which came on August 1, 1838.Mr. Brown said the annual staging of Flames of Freedom aims to increase public awareness about the role of Sam Sharpe in orchestrating the events that led to the end of slavery.The torch run involves collaboration with the Office of the Prime Minister, the Social Development Commission (SDC) and the JCDC, with sponsorship from the Culture, Health, Arts, Sports and Education Fund (CHASE).

News / Forwarders asked to watch for dangerous fake PPE in supply chains

first_img By Alex Lennane 16/04/2020 © Sergey Krotov Forwarders are being urged to be extra vigilant as criminals try to infiltrate the supply chain during the Covid-19 crisis.UK Border Force and its partners have warned the industry it has identified trends showing criminals are exploiting the current situation, pushing fake medicines and PPE into supply chains.The agency said criminals were “specifically targeting the vulnerable and those at most risk during the Covid-19 crisis. These goods are not fit for purpose, offering little or no protection, and will cost lives if successfully imported into the UK.”And it is thought that every country is facing similar challenges.center_img Border Force noted that it was also critical, however, that legal goods get through unimpeded.“It is imperative that essential goods can be imported expeditiously, keeping shops stocked, supporting the infrastructure of the country and allowing vital medical supplies and PPE to those in need.”The agency wrote to UK firms: “If, during your business you have any concerns over the legitimacy of a shipment or those behind it, please let us know as soon as possible.“This will allow us time to carry out a variety of checks which may prevent any further action being taken, thus allowing legitimate shipments free movement. However, your referral may result in the prevention of an illicit shipment making it through controls, saving lives.”However, BIFA director general Robert Keen claimed forwarders were always diligent.“There is usually very little they can do, apart from due diligence and checking documentation – and forwarders have always done this. Any forwarder would report a shipment they thought was wrong – it is a civic duty.He said that normally, on reporting suspicious activity, the forwarder would never find out the outcome, but may receive a letter of thanks from Customs.But one forwarder told The Loadstar: “We need to get this abhorrent, systematic criminal nonsense stopped.”If you do have concerns, Border Force asks you to get in touch with the Multi Agency Hub for Containers at [email protected] Telephone: 01394 303118; On Call (out of normal office hours): 07920 587808.last_img read more
