A nation once again

Last thursday many people from Mallow went to Dublin for the launch of the new Thomas Davis stamp. The events in Trinity and in the Bank of Ireland were moving. I was moved to tears myself. Minister Sean Sherlock a native of Mallow like Thomas Davis himself offically launched the new stamp of Thomas Davis. Also in attendance was John Paul O Shea who is the chairman of the Mallow Kanturk area of the Cork County Council, Tom Barry T.D. Mallow Development Partnership, the schools and others attended this event. It was a great day for Mallow and Ireland. The Thomas Davis pipe band’s playing of a nation once again moved me to tears.
In his short life through his songs poems and journalism in the Nation newspaper Thomas Davis developed a vision of Ireland that is open liberal and inclusive. It is a vision for all people and all creeds who make Ireland their nation that they are Irish. The song a nation once again was written by Thomas Davis.
