Show your loved one overseas that you are thinking of them by sending a hug from the hills with a #MonaghanMissesEwe Ramblin Sheep by Liz Christy. If you have been following our social media #monaghanmissesewe campaign you will know that we started with a little bit of fun, using Liz’s photos from over 30 years ago to get a flavour of Australia. But the sentiment was very real in that there is nothing like getting something in the post from home when you are far away. And with Covid, well this is all the more important….
Our social media campaign, #monaghanmissesewe will have brought you here where you can order a LizzyC Ramblin Sheep in the white and blue of Monaghan, and send wee cuddle from the drumlin hills to your loved one.

Since the early days of the lockdown in 2020, people have struggled with not being able to visit and hug their loved ones. As time has gone on, the loneliness felt for family and friends abroad is heartbreaking. It makes me think for days gone by when people said goodbye to sons and daughters knowing they would not see them again and be at least grateful for the connecting technology that we have today. Of course technology is no replacement for ass and a hug but we are thankful for it all the same.
Liz remembers when herself and Pat were travelling in Australia as young ones over 30 years ago and how they loved to get the letter from home. Liz missed the Monaghan hills. With this in mind we thought it would be nice to do something to connect with our County Monaghan diaspora. So we began the social media campaign #monaghanmissesewe. We are running it on our Instagram @lizchristy.handweaver and on our Facebook @LizChristy.Swallow Studios. We decided to begin with Australia and ask our Monaghan followers to tag their family and friends down-under. We picked the winner from each platform and we have posted out a ‘hug from the hills’. Lovely White & Blue LizzyC Ramblin Sheep are winging their way to the winners in Oz.
You too can send a Monaghan hug to your loved ones, whether they are Down Under or in Dubai, in Canada or California, Ayreshire or Austria.
