It’s Enya’s birthday today so here’s one of her earliest breakthrough hits.
Before she went solo she sang with traditional Irish band Clannad.
It’s also the anniversary of the 1974 Troubles where 33 civilians were killed and 300 injured when the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) detonated four car bombs in Dublin and Monaghan, Republic of Ireland. In happier news, in 2004 the first legal same-sex marriages in the U.S. were performed in Massachusetts.

Hili: What is a seagull doing on a sports field?
A: If it isn’t playing ball it’s probably looking for worms.
Hili: Co robi mewa na boisku?
