I like Bach Flower Remedies too, Suby, especially Rescue Remedy. Thanks for this post, it's very interesting and a great idea. I'm not sure they'd let us rename the shamrock, but it might actually work for another plant. What about a flower native to Ballyshannon or Cork areas? That would be very cool.[/quote Hope everyone is well from the flu especially Anna Maria and Madrid 74. I did go back to work this week and my cough is almost gone. My colleagues joked about whether I had Ebola. Well Ebola is not a joke but the media loves scaring the public. My doctor assured me it is very difficult to catch. That's why I don't really watch the news. Anyway I agree that a wild native Irish flower with a blue tinge or all blue would do. I agree with Cynthia I don't think a manufactured flower is appropriate. Annie Elliot I love Bach remedies and I keep Bach Rescue remedy in my handbag. My job is highly stressful and I work with the public. I am prone to panic attacks and travelling on the London Underground is also stressful too in rush hour. I have to move outside London someday and become self employed which I am working towards. Bach Remedy can help reduce stress with a few drops. I wanted to learn about Bach remedies and there was a course going on in Bath. Bath is beautiful with its Roman Baths. I first saw the baths in 1992 when I was 18. I just sat there transfixed and been a few times since. Its very healing to sit by the waters. Takes you back in time.... Anyway the course was cancelled but I will look out for another course soon. In the Dan Muise book its says Rory kept a box with herbal remedies. When band members got hurt, like cut themselves by accident he would get the box out and patch the band members up. Rory must have learnt about these remedies from his family like I did from grandmother. People used natural remedies long before modern medicines. I like the fact we can use them along side convention medicine. My family have used homeopathy for years. Subrata.x

Hey Everyone,

I have got a lead on this - managed to get five minutes to myself today to phone to a major rose supplier, so could carry on with this if people like the idea.

Sorry for brief post - have just typed out a whole reply then lost it after being asked to log in again for sixth time. Arrrggghhh!!! With a dodgy autocorrect too!!!

Anyway, I still like the idea of a native Irish wildflower but after a (very brief!) search didn't get many results. Anyone else have more luck so far?

I myself am veering more towards the idea of a blue rose. Roses are always beautiful and gorgeous, and blue roses, though highly bred, are nonetheless blue and very rare. Or maybe it doesn't have to be blue? It would also be a good way to spread his name, as so many millions of people order roses.

What would Donal think? Would he want to get involved?

http://wakeup-world.com/2014/04/18/disc ... ic-flower/ A nice article why roses could be good for you. My nan loved roses and they remind me of her. Subrata.x I suppose its good I studied Sciences at Uni. Makes me appreciate nature better. My nan also loved rose water. I don't think she used it for anything. She loved the smell. I keep some rose water too. It can be used apparently for religious ceremonies, food flavouring or just for fragrance. X

https://www.davidaustinroses.com/ I was watching a garden show on TV recently and they were showing David Austin. In England he well known for breeding roses and growing them . He has won awards. Maybe he can help in finding a rose to honour Rory. I have included his website in this post. Subrata.x
