TCD Alumni Ontario Monthly Pub NightsThe regular monthly pub nights scheduled for the second Tuesday of each month at P.J. O’Brien remain cancelled until the Covid-19 situation improves and the restrictions regarding social gatherings in Toronto are lifted. In the interim, we are inviting Ontario Alumni to join our Virtual Pub Nights for a chat on the same second Tuesday evening of each month at 7.30pm. All alumni on the college email list will receive an invitation.
TCD Alumni Ontario Annual Dinner 2020The Ontario Alumni Annual Dinner is our biggest event of the year and would normally be scheduled for October or November with advance notice of the date being sent out in August and September. In concert with many other organizations cancelling events, regretfully this year's dinner will not take place because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Such an event, even if a suitable location could be found, would unnecessarily expose people to the risks of infection and be severely limited by the restrictions. This will be the first year we have missed since 2003 but we will aim to pick up in 2021.
Reading of The Midnight CourtElsa Bolam from the Bloomsday Montreal Committee wrote:
"This unique comic poem composed around 1777 in Irish Gaelic, and passed on orally until the 20th Century, was translated in the 1950's into rhyming couplets by David Marcus.
In 18th Century Ireland, then in the grip of the Penal Laws, this poem, which tackles the very real problem of a declining population, deliberately flouted convention and delighted in saying the forbidden, as it was recited to illicit gatherings of ordinary people who found it an uproarious outlet. For a short while it took away the pain for those who felt themselves exploited by the English, the landowners, and the Church."
The reading can be found at The Midnight Court - YouTube.
