Bellitum, pronounced bell-eye-tum. In Bellitum’s ancestral spot there once lived a man, a ‘duine le Dia’ who had a favourite  horse called Bellitum. Those who kept vigil at his deathbed observed that the only way he could convey his will to live was by the phrase ‘Bellitum still’. Hanging on in there.

  1. Miss Larkin! How amazing to have come across you after all these years. I am, as you have probably guessed, one of your past pupils from St Mary’s in Killester. I intend to read every entry on this blog and savour each delicious post :)) I have such wonderful memories of you, too many to put in a comment here. I remember you as a unique and inspirational woman, blessed not only with intelligence and sensitivity but with a wonderful, dry wit and a great sense of humour. I hope you’re in the best of health and spirits. Very, very best wishes from Angela Frewen.

    PS I recently started a blog myself to host some flimsy little stories that I write to amuse myself and my sister, a sort of cross between Miss Read and Midsomer Murders without the murders!
