Over the years it has been described by many as the ‘first feeling of home’ as people returned to the area for Christmas holidays with family and friends. The Adare Village Hall Committee are more committed than ever to keep this tradition alive in 2020.This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Memory Bulb tradition and it is even more poignant this year. The community can buy a bulb on the tree to represent someone they have lost. Everyone who purchases a bulb receives a memory card showing each and every person’s name so they can all be held in the heart of the community.This has become a cherished keepsake from year to year. These cards are delivered locally by the committee but are posted out all over the world. Bulbs cost €5 each and this year information will be circulated to every household in the parish. Details will follow soon.The Village Hall Committee are also planning a big celebration for next year. In 2021, the village celebrates the 75th anniversary of Lady Nancy Dunraven gifting the first public tree in the country to the community of the Village. A tradition which has stood tall since.Chairman of the Village Hall Committee at Adare Village, Paudie Griffin, said: “We hope the village Christmas tree will bring a new sense of togetherness in the village this Christmas and remind people of our wonderful community and the need to shop local and to keep our village alive.“We have so many wonderful shops, boutiques, pubs, restaurants, cafes and hotels which we all need to support. The tree this year was funded by a ‘ go fund me page’ set up by the committee. This has been very well received with donations coming in from around the globe and we thank everyone for their support.”“The message is loud and clear from Adare Village. Our tree will stand proudly at the top of the village this year to represent our fight against Covid, to honour the people we have loved and lost and to show solidarity with our frontline workers. Covid won’t stop this wonderful tradition! It makes our hope burn brighter.” he added.

Top StoriesCalcutta High Court Orders House Arrest Of 4 TMC Leaders In Narada Case After Judges Disagree On Interim Bail LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK21 May 2021 12:17 AMShare This – xFollowing a split in the Calcutta High Court Bench hearing the case pertaining to bail of four Trinamool Congress leaders, who have been in custody since May 17 since their arrest by the CBI in the Narada Scam Case, the matter has been referred to a larger Bench.In the meanwhile, the division bench ordered that the four leaders— Ministers Firhad Hakim and Subrata Mukherjee, MLA Madan Mitra and Sovan Chatterjee- be kept in house arrest and all medical amenities will be given to them.Advertisement Since two of the arrested persons are Ministers in the newly-elected State Government and one of them is an MLA, the Court has permitted them to access files and meet officials through videoconferencing while under house arrest, to discharge their functions.The bench also rejected the request made by the CBI to stay the present order.Dramatic twist in Narada Case in Calcutta High Court :Justice Arijit Banerjee orders interim bail to 4 TMC leaders.Acting CJ Rajesh Bindal differs says they must be kept in house arrest.Interim-bail issue referred to larger bench.Meanwhile, accused to be in house arrest. https://t.co/ZpSd64d9fC— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 21, 2021Advertisement The Bench declined the requests made the TMC leaders’ counsels for their release on interim bail until the matter is heard by a larger Bench. However, it has allowed the leaders to access files, meet officials but only through VC. “Whatever work they are doing for public, let it continue,” it said. A Division Bench of Acting Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justice Arijit Banerjee which heard the matter at length on Wednesday has given conflicting opinions.Advertisement Advertisement Whereas Justice Arijit Banerjee has passed an order allowing interim bail, ACJ Bindal has disagreed and said that the four arrested TMC leaders must be kept in house arrest. In view of the split, the matter has been referred to a larger bench. Senior Advocate Dr Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for the TMC leaders, expressed his shock at the order as it has been passed mid-way of the hearing. He urged that the leaders be released on interim bail till the matter is heard by the larger bench, which should be constituted today itself.Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement “The interim situation should be freedom. These are Ministers, MLAs. There is no possibility of flight risk. There has been no slightest allegation of them not cooperating with investigation,” he submitted. To this, Justice Banerjee replied : “One of the members of the bench thought it fit to grant interim-bail. The other member of the bench did not agree. So, this point of interim bail has to be considered by the larger-bench. In the meantime, considering pandemic situation, house arrest has been given.” However, Singhvi pointed out that he made the interim bail plea at 4.30 pm on Wednesday when the court was about to rise; and the arguments were not complete. If the choice is between full arrest and house arrest, it will be house arrest. But if the choice is between freedom and house-arrest, it will be freedom, he said. He added that in case of house arrest, Ministers should also be given access to the files related to COVID work, vaccination etc. Senior Advocate Kalyan Bandopadhyaya, who represented the leaders before the Trial Court, also submitted that the leaders’ absence is affecting Covid-related work. He stated that Firhad Hakim is working 24*7 for COVID vaccination related matters and his presence is necessary for COVID work in Kolkata. “So necessary to give him access to files and permit him to meet officials,” he urged. He further pressed that the larger bench be constituted urgently and should hear the matter today at 2 PM itself, in the same spirit the High Court took up CBI’s urgent plea against Trial Court order on May 17 at 5.30 PM. Senior Advocate Sidharth Luthra, representing Sovan Chatterjee, submitted that the investigation is over and there is no requirement of custody. “Under what provision the custody will be given? Section 167?” he asked. “This order was passed since interim bail plea was raised. Now it is surprising you are raising issues on merits after order,” ACJ Bindal said. Significantly, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta appearing for CBI also prayed for stay of the house arrest order. He submitted that the Union has reservations about the Supreme Court judgement in Gautam Navalakha case, which has been relied on by the High Court to allow the house arrest of the TMC leaders.The request was however declined. Complete minute-by-minute account of the hearing may be read here.BackgroundOn May 17, the bench had stayed the bail granted by the Special CBI Court at Kokata to four Trinamool Congress leaders – Firhad Hakim, Madan Mitra, Subrata Mukherjee and Sovan Chatterjee – who were arrested dramatically by CBI on May 17. The bench passed the stay order after a dramatic late night hearing held on the basis of a letter sent by the CBI seeking transfer of the case to the High Court citing “unprecedented mob pressure” exerted on the lower court by the mass protests led by Chief Minister and the Law Minister against the arrests of the TMC leaders.On the next day, the TMC leaders filed applications seeking recall of the stay order on the ground that it was passed without issuing notice to them.On May 19, the bench had heard Solicitor General Tushar Mehta for the CBI, and Senior Advocates Dr Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Sidharth Luthra for the arrested TMC leaders. Singhvi and Luthra had prayed for interim bail on the ground that the accused are aged persons having comorbidities. The bench was told that three of the arrested persons were shifted to hospital and one of them, Sovan Chatterjee continued to be in jail.Click here to read/download the reference order passed on May 21Click here to read/download the order passed by Acting Chief Justice Rajesh BindalClick here to read/download the order passed by Justice Arijit BanerjeeReports of hearing on May 19 :’Is Protesting In Streets The Way To Respond When Matter Is Considered By Court?’ : Calcutta HC Asks In Narada Case Against Trinamool Leaders ‘Orchestrated Attempt To Frustrate Justice & Stop CBI From Discharging Its Functions’: SG Tushar Mehta Tells Calcutta High Court in Narada Scam CasePeaceful Protests Permissible In Democracy Even If Court Is Considering The Issue : Dr. Singhvi In Calcutta High Court Narada Case- “Do You Deny CM Sitting In Dharna In Front Of CBI Office”?
