Anam Cara Cork
I wanted to ask you a small favour with regard to our upcoming bag pack on Saturday 17th November at Dunnes Stores Bishopstown, Cork. To help us raise the funds to help with the costs of the Anam Cara Cork groups and events, we would be very grateful if you, other family members or friends were available to help us for a couple of hours on Saturday 17th November between 12:00pm - 6:00pm.
It’s amazing how 2 hours will fly when you do it in memory of a loved one.
Thank those of you who have been in touch already, we really appreciate your offer of help and will be back in touch soon with more details.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And- which is more - you’ll be a Man, my son!
