Seven Sisters at Seven Sisters

Don’t you like it when something feels just right.

Ben Patey, 33, was travelling home from work when he captured a snap of seven nuns on a train platform, at Seven Sisters London Underground station. He said: “I had just had a long day and I was waiting to jump on the train when I looked across and saw the nuns and the sign.

“I had to do a double-take. It was one of those strange but amusing moments.” Seven Sisters is believed to take its name from a group of seven elm trees which were planted around a willow tree in the 14th Century.  It is thought they may have been planted by seven non-ecclesiastical sisters who were going their separate ways.

In 1898, to widespread bemusement, a small Provincial Newspaper in an equally small town in the South West corner of Ireland sonorously warned the Czar of Russia that it knew what he was up to and he should be careful how he proceeded for “The Skibbereen Eagle” was wise to his game and in future would be keeping its eye on him! It is doubtful that Nicholas II, Emperor and Autocrat of All the Russias, even noticed the Eagle’s admonitions but as history soon proved he should have paid closer attention to the Eagle’s insightful opinions!

Today, powered by its readers and contributors, from its cyber eyries in Ireland and the centres of the Irish Diaspora The Eagle casts its Cold Eye on Life and Death and much in between.
