Leigh le do thoil
I am moved to write this post. I do so with some trepidation, acutely aware that it may present itself as a humble brag, or an attempt to draw attention.
Today, I sang for the requiem mass of Éamonn Ryan in the rugged beauty of Ballingeary. I had sung for the family at previous ceremonies, but I confess I did not know the nature of Mr Ryan’s career or his place in the psyche of Irish sport. I’m Welsh. I tend to switch over from sport.
The eulogies were touchingly delivered and a fine summary of the man’s achievements and impact on his family and community. The church was sparsely attended due to COVID restrictions, but the atmosphere was warm with praise and remembrance. The reason I’m writing the post, anyway, is to recount my feelings as I drove out of Ballingeary at the rear of the cortege. Along every street of the village, outside every house, scores of people were gathered to pay respects on Mr Ryan’s final journey. This continued through the countryside at every gate and crossroads. Through Inchegeelagh it seemed the whole population were lining the streets, masked and apart but conjoined in paying their respects. A score or so of young ladies lined the Main Street attired in Cork jerseys. Outside every house on the drive to the N22, mile upon mile, the Cork colours were flying to signal Mr Ryan’s onward journey.
The things which matter to us we still hold fast. The rhythms of our lives may be currently muted and masked, but they are still audible. Our spirits still dance to their drum. We may be physically distant from one another, but the golden threads of meaning which bind us to our humanity are as strong as ever. Stretched, but not fraying. This was evidenced to me today on the solemn but uplifting drive through the winter sunshine sparkling off the wellspring of the Lee. Care, compassion, respect, love, acknowledgement and meaning are all still present.
RIP Éamonn Ryan. I did not know you or of you, but nevertheless your influence on the world has meant something to me today.
