Anakana Schofield – Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky

May 29th 1835

From Eugenie De Guerin’s journal: (pardon the accent omissions)

 “Never did a storm last so long, it is raging yet. For the last three days the thunder and rain have held their revels. All the trees bend under the deluge: it is cruel to see them look so wearied and faint amidst the bright triumph of May…”

 May! Jaysus! A three-day storm in May? Crikey. A nice meteorological nugget to ponder from 1835 as we brace for global warming.
