Boyle Arts Festival 2015



Roscommon Herald - Sports section "Sick as a parrot"

I got to thinking of this and other expressions and checked their origins, for example :-
"Sweating like a pig": Pigs don't sweat much, so they wallow in the mud to cool off their bodies. So how did the English language expression "sweating like a pig" develop? It's actually a reference to pig iron, iron smelting: How does the smelter know when the metal is cool enough to transport? When the "pigs" "sweat." As the metal cools, the air around it reaches the dew point, causing droplets to form on the metal's surface.

Chantelle and all at Pure Flowers of Distinction have established a much favoured business on Bridge Street. At the moment they are moving stock and setting up at a new prime location beside Boyle Bridge.
