Census 3rd April 2022 It’s quick, it’s confidential and it’s compulsory. Every five years there is a census in Ireland and this year it will happen on Sunday 3rd April. Wherever you sleep on that night is where you should be included on a census form.


Let me tell you something about trees. They speak to each other. They speak to each other through tunnels that extend from their roots, opened in the earth by fungus, sending their messages cell by cell, with a patience that could only be possessed by a living thing that cannot move. If a tree is starving, its neighbours will send it food. No one really knows how this can be, but it is. Nutrients will travel in the tunnel made of fungus from the roots of a healthy tree to its starving neighbour, even one of a different species. Trees live, like you and me, long lives, and they know things. They know the rule, the only one that’s real and must be kept. What’s the rule? You know. I’ve told you lots of times before. Be kind.
