I grew up on a road called the Blackroad. Named because years ago there were so many trees making it was very dark. I remember when we'd be coming home late in the evening from a match or mass or god knows where we would turn the corner onto the Blackroad and there in the darkness of the night sitting proudly up on the branches of this big old tree, on the banks of the River Inny was the most beautiful white Barn Owl. She was elegant and she just seemed to glow in the dark. We loved seeing her and my father would often pull up and we'd sit quietly and just watch her for a while. She was there for years and even though we never got near her she got used to our visits. During lockdown I walked with the kids to this very spot. Unfortunately the big tree is long gone as are so many more on the road. Its a strong memory I have and a good one of  'My Owl Buddy'.  I've recreated her here in bold colour.
