The Tragic Story of the Curragh "Wrens"
THE CURRAGH WRENS By Con Costello It was almost dusk when, as they drove close to a patch of furze, the first wren” was seen, and the driver exclaimed: “and there’s a nest”. The visitor found that there were ten “nests” in all, accommodating about sixty women aged between 17 and 25, some of whom had been there for up to nine years. Located in a clump of furze, and known by a number given to it by the inmates - who numbered from 3 to 8, each nest consisted of a shelter measuring some 9’x7’ and 4’/2’ high, made of sods and gorse. With a low door, and no window or chimney, and with an earthen floor, the “nest” had for furniture a shelf to hold a teapot, crockery, a candle, and a box in which the women kept their few possessions. Upturned saucepans were used as stools, and the straw for bedding was pushed to one side during the day. At night the fire within the shelter was covered with a perforated pot, and the women undressed to sleep in the straw. In summertime the “nests” gave some shelter, but in winter the wind whistled through them. The women, who were all Irish, came from different parts of the country. Some of them had followed a soldier from another station, others came to seek a former lover, while the majority sought to make a livelihood. They lived, received their families, gave birth and died in the “nests”. Their clothing consisted of a frieze skirt with nothing on top except another frieze around the shoulders. In the evenings when the younger women went to meet the soldiers, in the uninhabited gorse patches, they dressed up in crinolines, petticoats and shoes and stockings. The older women remained behind to mind the children, of whom the visitor counted four, and to prepare food. All the takings of a “nest” were pooled, and the diet of potatoes, bread and milk was purchased on the few days when the women were allowed to attend the market in the camp. Otherwise it was out-of-bounds, but an army water-waggon brought them in a regular supply. While the hospital in the camp catered for soldiers, and where it was estimated between 38070 and 5007o of the patients suffered from VD, there was no medical aid for the women except in Kildare infirmary, or Naas workhouse and jail. Doctors did not come to the “nests”. The gentleman from the Pall Mall Gazette decided that, contrary to popular opinion, the women did not live in the furze because they loved vice. They were there because it was known that those who sought refuge in the workhouse at Naas lived in even worse conditions. Following his visit to Kildare, the English journalist published a harrowing description of the condition of the women and, in the following year, when the Curragh of Kildare Act was passed it enabled the authorities to take action to regulate the use of the plains. A positive attempt was made to alleviate the suffering of the women in the building of the Lock Hospital at Kildare. The name Lock is believed to have been derived from an old Lepers’ Hospital in London. It was later applied to institutions for the treatment of venereal diseases, such as that in George’s Lane in Dublin. In the summer of 1868, on a 1?-acre site leased forever from the Duke of Leinster on the lands of Broadhook farm on the road from the town to the Curragh work began on the building of the hospital. It was estimated that the project would cost ?6,048 and the accepted tender was for ?5,200; in July of the following year when the work was completed the total cost was found to be ?6,105.1 .0. Very soon the main road, from which the new 320 foot avenue to the hospital opened, was to become known as Hospital Road. The hospital consisted of a group of one-storey slated buildings, linked with corrugated-iron roofed corridors, with a separate wash-house and laundry, a water tank, a dead house and coal sheds. A sewerage pit was made some distance away. The two wards, to accommodate 20 and 16 beds, the matron’s quarters, medical stores, examining depot, segregation building, porter’s quarters and policeman~ s waiting room were built of Athy brick. Part of the segregation building was adapted for use as a Roman Catholic chapel. The lighting of the buildings was by oil. Two outdoor recreation areas were laid out, and there was an appropriate number of baths and toilets attached to the wards. The plans for the hospital were made by the School of Military Engineering at Chatham for the War Department, and to administer the institution a staff consisting of a matron, three nurses, a steward and a porter were appointed.After twenty years of use the Lock Hospital was closed and the buildings remained in the ownership of the War Department. At the end of the 19th century it was decided to erect an artillery barrack on a large site around the buildings of the hospital which was converted to recreational rooms, an office for the commanding officer and stores. About 150 huts, to serve as billets, etc., were put up, and a large range of wagon sheds, sta
Datta dada, owner of this Ganpati workshop sits to paint the Ganesha idol. When he and his team is not making Ganesha and Durga idols, they run a little furniture shop at the same venue. Will bring us the idol-painting pictures soon :) Preparations on for Ganesh Chaturthi, an Indian festival. Looking forward to those 11 days buzzing with positivity and prayer. A little about Ganesh Chaturthi: Ganesha Chaturthi, the great Ganesha festival, also known as 'Vinayak Chaturthi' or 'Vinayaka Chavithi' is celebrated by Hindus around the world as the birthday of Lord Ganesha. It is observed during the Hindu month of Bhadra (mid-August to mid-September) and the grandest and most elaborate of them, especially in the western India state of Maharashtra, lasts for 10 days, ending on the day of 'Ananta Chaturdashi'. A life-like clay model of Lord Ganesha is made 2-3 months prior to the day of Ganesh Chaturthi. The size of this idol may vary from 3/4th of an inch to over 25 feet. On the day of the festival, it is placed on raised platforms in homes or in elaborately decorated outdoor tents for people to view and pay their homage. The priest, usually clad in red silk dhoti and shawl, then invokes life into the idol amidst the chanting of mantras. This ritual is called 'pranapratishhtha'. After this the 'shhodashopachara' (16 ways of paying tribute) follows. Coconut, jaggery, 21 'modakas' (rice flour preparation), 21 'durva' (trefoil) blades and red flowers are offered. The idol is anointed with red unguent or sandal paste (rakta chandan). Throughout the ceremony, Vedic hymns from the Rig Veda and Ganapati Atharva Shirsha Upanishad, and Ganesha stotra from the Narada Purana are chanted. For 10 days, from Bhadrapad Shudh Chaturthi to the Ananta Chaturdashi, Ganesha is worshipped. On the 11th day, the image is taken through the streets in a procession accompanied with dancing, singing, to be immersed in a river or the sea symbolizing a ritual see-off of the Lord in his journey towards his abode in Kailash while taking away with him the misfortunes of all man. All join in this final procession shouting "Ganapathi Bappa Morya, Purchya Varshi Laukariya" (O father Ganesha, come again early next year). After the final offering of coconuts, flowers and camphor is made, people carry the idol to the river to immerse it. The whole community comes to worship Ganesha in beautifully done tents. These also serve as the venue for free medical checkup, blood donation camps, charity for the poor, dramatic performances, films, devotional songs, etc. during the days of the festival.
