Summertime, and the Livin’ is Easy …


Editor’s Corner: Summertime, and the Livin’ is Easy!
By John O’Brien, Jr. @Jobjr

NEO lost a legend this past month, with the accidental death of folk legend Gusti. Generations were moved to song and dance at her performances, and she guided newbies of every age. Gusti & Sean Moore are part of the fabric of Irish music in greater Cleveland, and beyond. I hope and pray they are picking out a few tunes in heaven as you read this. See Safe Home on the next page for more on Gusti.

The return of men’s, women’s and kid’s Gaelic games in the Midwest division; live music like The Druidsplaying in Toledo; and golf outings, including Nora’s Public House Annual Bash, has us very excited for this summer. June issue also features our annual Irish and Celtic Festival Focus Series, including Cleveland’s May Dugan Irish Roots Festival, Penn-Mar Irish Fest, The Hooley @Kamms, Ohio Scottish Games, Penn-Mar Irish Festival, Shamrock Club of Columbus Irish Festival, and a summer schedule sure to keep you moving, and singing.

The 64th Annual Pi0neers Mass is on the 12th; well worth an hour or two on a Sunday morning.  See the What’s the Craic?, Taking the Fields of Glory, and the Annual Festival Focus pages within for all craic, and the details too. There is so much more inside.

We wish fathers everywhere a Happy, Happy Father’s Day, this year on June 19th; what you do matters more than you will ever know.

Hope to see you at a Gaelic Football, Hurling or Camogie game; The Druids in Toledo June 9th; the Pioneer Mass June 12th, The Hooley @Kamms June 18th; Ohio Scottish Games June 24-26; and the Shamrock Club of Columbus Irish Festival June 25th.  The July issue comes out June 29th – we sure could use your advertising support; we have so many options for you to help while getting a return on your investment, so please reach out to us for a package perfect for your needs and budget.

Nuair a stapann an ceol, an damhsa déanann an amhlaidh
