It’s that time of year again – everyone’s
favourite annual hiking event is back and it’s all systems go in preparation for the big event in West Cork.
The Sheep’s Head Way is one of the most remote parts of Ireland, well-known for its laid-back way of life, friendly people and breath-taking scenery. So whether you’re already an intrepid trekker or want to try it for the very first time, taking part in the Sheep’s Head Hike is a great way to raise money for our global neighbours and challenge yourself at the same time. The annual Sheep’s Head Hike has raised tens of thousands of pounds for our work to continue in communities throughout the world that are living in poverty.
Let’s set a challenge as we celebrate the hike’s 10th anniversary – let’s surpass all previous fundraising efforts!

Random Notes No. CCLXXIX
In the Victorian era the symbolic meanings of flowers, such as red roses for love, were used as an unspoken language. For instance, if a lady received a bouquet of snowdrops, meaning hope, and jonquils, meaning a return of affection, it showed that the sender hoped she returned his affections.
Here is a list of other flowers and plants and their meanings:
Acacia (pink)-elegance. Balsam-Impatience
Camellia (red) loveliness. Daffodil (yellow)-Chivalry
Ivy-friendship, fidelity. Juniper-protection.
Lavender-distrust. Marigold-grief, despair.
Peach blossom-I am your captive. Quince-temptation.
Rose (la France)-meet me by moonlight.
Tansy-I am against you. Vervain-enchantment.
Wisteria-I cling to you. Xanthium-rudeness, impertinence.
Yarrow-war. Zinnia-thoughts of you.
If however, the flowers the lady received were Rue, meaning disdain, or St John’s Wort, meaning animosity, her chances of marrying him seemed rather slim!
