Our guest contributor this week is Irish writer and actor, Tara Flynn.
I’ve never met a statue I trusted, and I’m not just talking about the way their cold eyes seem
to follow you.
They played a big part in my teens. I remember getting a lift straight from Siamsa Cois Laoi ’85 to see the moving statue in Ballinspittle. We all saw the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM) move, though it was hard to say which had us more captivated: herself or Kris Kristofferson. (Few acts stopped by Ireland at all. We took what we got back then and we were grateful).
