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.

President Donald Trump has called for new rules for asylum seekers, including charging them a fee, limiting their ability to work legally and demanding that the courts resolve their claims within 180 days.The plan, outlined in a White House memo released Monday evening, is the administration’s latest attempt to solve the immigration problem throughout the U.S.-Mexico border.Trump’s latest memo is one of several steps the administration is has planned as part of a broader strategy at the border.Trump issued a separate memo last week, aimed at combating visa stays. The administration has also discussed the possibility of building tent cities along the border and is reportedly researching an external study that suggests the president use “emergency regulation” to detain families longer.”This strategic exploitation of our Nation’s humanitarian programs undermines our Nation’s security and sovereignty,” the White House memo says. “The purpose of this memorandum is to strengthen asylum procedures to safeguard our system against rampant abuse of our asylum process.”The memo directs Attorney General William Barr and acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, to propose the new regulations within 90 days.It also suggests that a fee charged should be charged to those applying for asylum “not to exceed the costs of adjudicating the application” as well as a fee when applying for employment authorization.Furthermore, it calls to prohibit people who entered the U.S. illegally from being authorized to work “before any applicable application for relief for protection from removal has been granted.”McAleenan, who Trump put in charge of the Department of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen’s departure is expected to discuss the problems occurring at the border with Congress on Tuesday.
View this post on Instagram MORE: MMA fighter Devin Clark takes a knee before bout at UFC 250Protests have swept the United States and beyond in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis. The protest Joshua attended on Saturday was among several held in the United Kingdom.Floyd died in police custody on May 25 after former officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.”The virus has been declared a pandemic,” Joshua said. “This is out of control. And I’m not talking about COVID-19. The virus I’m talking about is called racism. We stand united against a virus which has been instrumental in taking lives, taking lives of the young, old, rich, poor; a virus which is unapologetic and spreads across all sectors.”Joshua added: “We can no longer sit back and remain silent on these senseless, unlawful killings and sly racism on another human being – based on what? Only their skin color.”We need to speak out in peaceful demonstrations — just like today, so, well done, Watford.”We must not use a demonstration for selfish motives and turn it into rioting and looting.” In a widely reported statement, the Briton’s camp insisted the brace was “a precautionary measure” that was not of significant concern after he had felt a “twinge” in training.Joshua has accepted he will only fight once in 2020 due to the impact of the coronavirus crisis on the boxing calendar. His next opponent is set to be Bulgarian challenger Kubrat Pulev.Joshua and Pulev were due to fight at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this month, but the contest was postponed, with a new date and venue still to be determined. Welcome to Watford! We are uniting our community, sparking discussions about economic change and education!
