The Moonlight Sonata by Yannis Ritsos, Trinity College – 25 March

A big “thank you” from the Hellenic Community of Ireland to the two exceptional actors
Marios Iordánou and Sophia Kazantzián, who made us all participants in “…the life and the fluttering of a moment…”
A big “thank you”, which indeed is not sufficient, for the honour they did to our small Community, by allowing us to be the point of departure for the dedicatory voyage to our great poet, Yannis Rítsos.
We were moved by their interpretation, they entered our hearts and minds, they enchanted the souls of our children…
Our warmest thanks to: the Embassy of Greece in Ireland;
Professor Dr. Christine Morris of the Department of Classics in Trinity College;
who was our host; to Marjorie Chambers, an alumna of TCD, who has translated Rítsos’s work, and to the students
Andrew Beazley, Paul Corcoran and Ellen Finn, who read the poem in English. And finally to all the tireless volunteers, who dedicated endless hours towards the success of the presentation, and of course to the wonderful members of the audience who filled the Long Room Hub to capacity.
Our thanks to you all.

Easter celebration get together

The parish council with the  Hellenic community would like to celebrate Easter Sunday Greek style with a BBQ after the end of  The Vespers of Agape around  1pm in the church grounds.

We are going to organise this BBQ ourselves and would love as many from the Hellenic community to join us.  We are asking for each family to participate as regarding to food.  We would ask that each family bring some meat suitable for cooking on BBQ and if each family could bring either salads/other starters/gyka/pitta/Easter biscuits or whatever each person feels they would like to cook/bake.

If everybody could get back to me to let me know what each family will bring would be great so we don’t have the same of everything or end up with too much salads etc.  Then I can email you all again and let you all know if we need anything else etc.  We would love to have some music too so anybody with some Cd’s that they would like to hear bring them along too.

Also if you know of other people who are not included in this email and would like to come to forward them the details. My mobile is 087 1924528 if  anybody wishes to contact me.

Thanks all,
Martina/Kostas Halkiadakis
