They will be joined by members of the French Foreign Legion Association of Ireland and members of the Irish Defence Forces as well as Limerick’s Boherbuoy Band.A talk by Cornelius O’Sullivan, President of En Garde, on the history of the Wild Geese and their impact on the shared history of France and Ireland will be followed by a gun salute by En Garde members.Mayor Michael Sheahan said that one of his priorities was to honour the Limerick diaspora and he had called for a ‘Wild Geese Festival’ to remember them and their contribution.“I’m delighted that, together with the new Honorary Consul of France in Limerick, a special celebration around Bastille Day is taking place. Limerick and France have many ties, the Wild Geese among them, and it’s great that we are beginning to look at and celebrate this connection.“Newly appointed Honorary Consul of France Loïc Guyon said the event will symbolise “an annual celebration of the long-lasting friendship between our two nations.”“The Flight of the Wild Geese brought our two countries closer than ever before, with so many Irish men and women settling in France and, for many of them, integrating into French society in very successful ways.“The fact that the Limerick Wild Geese Festival will be scheduled every year on the Sunday of or immediately preceding Bastille Day is highly symbolic. This year’s event will only be a small-scale version of what we are hoping to organise from next year onwards but should already be a very special and enjoyable experience for all”.Shannon Heritage managing director Niall O’Callaghan said that, as operators of King John’s Castle, they were delighted to be associated with an event that strengthened Franco-Hibernian relations and showed how the castle was embedded in Limerick’s history.Registration for Limerick’s Bastille Day celebration takes place at 1pm at the entrance to King John’s Castle.

The historical episode known as the ‘Flight of the Wild Geese’ refers to the 12,000 Irish Jacobite soldiers, commanded by Patrick Sarsfield, who left Ireland for France as agreed in the Treaty of Limerick in 1691 ending the Williamite War in Ireland. The Wild Geese formed King James’s army in exile but by 1692 were incorporated into the French Army.

She is fluent in both English and Italian, and studied abroad in Florence, Italy.

Born and raised in Texas, Baer now works as the online editor for DS News. A new report from CoreLogic’s Andrew LePage found that San Francisco – a market known for its astronomical home prices – has started to show signs of cooling. This is indicative of a broader housing trend of markets “self-correcting” instead of bubbling.In a research report conducted by Realtor.com, it was found that the national housing market has significantly recovered post-crisis with home prices growing significantly in recent years. They predicted that the unstainable price increases seen in San Francisco as well as other cities such as San Jose and Austin would naturally taper off due to people choosing to rent over buy, move in with family or roommates, or relocate to a housing market that is more affordable.This prediction is ringing true when it comes to San Francisco. According to the CoreLogic analysis, the housing market anomaly experienced a decrease in existing home sales through August of 2016 compared to the same period in the year prior. LePage says that this is due to conditions in the market being significantly different from those of pre-crisis.“One key difference between now and a decade ago is that today’s home prices don’t appear to be as far out of line with incomes, even though prices jumped about 60 percent over the past four and a half years,” says LePage. “CoreLogic calculates a long-term sustainable home price level based on the historical relationship between its Home Price Index (HPI) and a region’s per-capita disposable income. In July, this year the price level for the San Francisco metro division was 1.2 percent above the long-term sustainable price level. Near the peak of the last cycle home prices were 20 percent higher than the long-term sustainable level.”The San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward metro area’s market condition indicator was rated as normal by the CoreLogic HPI based on the long-term fundamental values, which are a function of real disposable income per capita. This means that despite the increase in home prices, income is holding pace.Another measure of market “self-correction” is the decreased flipping activity in San Francisco, says the report. Specifically, the third quarter of 2016 had a reported 2.1 percent of the homes flipped in the San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward metro area, which was a decrease from 2.3 percent from the year prior. The report also found that this rate was significantly lower than the 5.9 percent peak in first quarter 2005.Realtor.com postulates that the decrease in flipping is yet another factor pointing toward the market tapering off instead of bubble because flipping is one of the six factors quintessential to the housing bubble and subsequent housing crisis in the 2000’s.In addition to these trends marking “self-correction” and health in the housing market, CoreLogic reports that home purchase loan applications through August were stagnant compared the year prior. Further, the home inventory increased approximately 22 percent year-over-year.LePage says that now the biggest risk factors appear to be external to the market. These include slower job growth, a prolonged stock market sell-off, and higher mortgage rates.“While San Francisco faces a variety of possible external threats, it doesn’t appear to be beset by the same internal risks seen a decade ago,” says LePage.To read the full analysis from CoreLogic, click HERE.
