Retirement candle - Teacher
The poem on this candle are from the poem An tOide, le Seamus O hAodha
"Uasal ceird an oide,
Mar ri ar imeall tra
Chuir ar toinn na soithigh
‘s sheol go hoscailt ba"
Loosely translated this poem says that teaching is a noble profession. The poet compares the task of the teacher preparing young pupils for life with that of an ancient king launching his ships from the harbour and guiding them out to sea.......Thus the image of a boat with Carlow Colours as the Teacher in question was the Principal of the Gaelscoil in Carlow
