Five Little Cygnets
Cross the Bundoran Road

by Jane Gilgun


THIS PICTURE BOOK TELLS THE STORY of how a swan mother and father overcame obstacles to get their five newly hatched cygnets across the busy Bundoran Road to the salt marsh on the other side.

The photographs show the mother swan standing in the road shielding her babies from on-coming cars, the cygnets’ slow toddle across the road, the father swan’s efforts to get the babies through a wire fence, and finally the cygnets, mother, and father paddling away on the salt marsh under the watch of Benbulben, the table mountain that the poet W.B. Yeats immortalized.

The salt marsh is beside the Bundoran Road, outside of Mullaghmore, County Sligo, Ireland.

Description
A 15-page full-color picture book that shows the fuzzy swan babies in their newborn cuteness and the intelligence and care of their mother and father.

The beauty of County Sligo, Ireland, comes through in this beautiful picture book.



About the Author JANE GILGUN HAS SPENT many summers in County Sligo, Ireland, where this story takes place. Her grandfather Thomas Gilgun was born on a dairy farm in Meenkeeragh, County Leitirim. When Thomas was ten, his family left Meenkeeragh never to return. Jane Gilgun is a professor, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, USA.

I don’t usually reply to posts but I will in this case. I’ve been experiencing this very same problem with a new WordPress installation of mine. I’ve spent weeks calibrating and getting it ready when all of a sudden… I cannot delete any content. It’s a workaround that, although isn’t perfect, does the trick so thanks! I really hope this problem gets solved properly asap.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

I am the sort of guy who passions to taste unprecedented stuff. Presently I'm manufacturing my private solar panels. I'm doing it all by myself without the aid of my staff. I am using the net as the only way to acheive that. I ran across a really brilliant website which explains how to contruct solar panels and wind generators. The site explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I am not exactly sure bout how precise the information given there is. If some experts over here who had experience with these works can have a look and give your feedback in the page it would be grand and I'd highly treasure it, because I extremely like solar panel construction.

Tnx for reading this. U guys are the best.

My friend and I were recently talking about how we as a society are so hooked onto electronics. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes cheaper, the possibility of downloading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about all the time.
