I just discovered Rooney Mara is going to play Mary Magdalene in a movie produced by the folks who did ‘The Kings Speech’ written by a man who is in my grandmother’s family tree! How perfect. I can move on from the wicked destruction of my daughter, Heather Marie, who was born on Rosemary’s birthday, and my Muse, Belle Burch. I own revelations about Mary Magdalene that I was poised to share for free, but, will now do so in tandem with this UN-NAMED movie.


Rooney Mara as the ‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ reminds me of my mother, born Rosemary Rosamond, the daughter of Mary Magdalene Rosamond, and Royal Rosamond. They look alike and own the same intelligent and intensity. Here we have the Kabuki Dragon moving into a new movie. Mary in ‘The Last temptation of Jesus Christ’ was covered in tattoos.

I suggest the producer get the Japanese definitions for this temporary title;


This could be the first Kabuki style movie in the West with New Testament trash-talk thrown in to sweeten the pot. This is the movie I should be doing the screenplay for. I am going for a follow-up book. Maybe I can do the HBO series?

What I get to do now is pit Patrice, Linda, Heather, Stacey, Alley, and Belle against Mother Rosemary, a whore for the Italian Mafia, who might have an interest in protecting her son – from beyond the grave. Rosemary worked in Naval Intelligence. If you made her list, did her, or her man, wrong, she would hunt you down, taking her own sweet time. Rose Mara was a very bitter woman, and never forgot a trespass. Will she ever forgive?

“As far as I know, I’m doing it until someone says that I’m not,” Mara said in an interview with E!. “And then I still might do it!”

What does she mean? “And then I still might do it!”

“Do not awaken the Sleeping Jade Dragon!”

Mara as a female first name is pronounced MAHR-ah most of the time, but can be pronounced as rhyming with Sarah in Jewish-American and Southern United States culture. It is of Hebrew origin, and the meaning of Mara is “bitter”, which carries the implication “strength”. Biblical: Naomi, mother-in-law of Ruth, claimed the name Mara as an expression of grief after the deaths of her husband and sons. It also means “Lady” in Aramaic, because Mar means “Lord”, and is a title of bishops in the Syriac Christian church. [1] It is also the name of a bitter lake in the Bible, and a title of the Kabbalistic sephira Binah. Marah, an alternate spelling, means joy in Arabic and can be a unisex name. (Ar:مرح)

Rooney Mara is engaged in discussions to play Mary Magdalene in a new biopic from The King’s Speech producer See-Saw Films.

The project, backed by Universal Pictures International Productions, was first announced last month and is set to be an “authentic and humanistic portrait” of one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood spiritual figures in history.

Garth Davis — currently in post-production on See-Saw’s Lion, also starring Mara — is directing the film from a script written by Helen Edmundson and Philippa Goslett. Production is set to begin next summer for an anticipated release in 2017.

This interesting name is of Irish origin. It derives from the medieval Gaelic O’ Ruanaidh, meaning The descendant of the champion”. Unfortunately we do not know who the champion was except that he would have been the chief of the clan. The original O’ Rooneys were from Dromore in County Down, and today whilst they are spread through Ireland, they remain principally in Ulster, and the neighbouring county of Leitrim. They were famous as a literary family, who included Eoin O’ Rooney, chief poet to the Mac Guinness of Iveagh in the 14th century, whilst five centuries later the tradition was still continuing with John Jerome Rooney. He was born in America in 1866, and an Irish-American Catholic poet, whilst William Roony (1873 – 1901), was both a poet and a Gaelic revivalist, and Micky Rooney was the most famous filmstar of his day. There is a place called Rooney’s Island in County Donegal. The modern surname can be found as Rooney, Roony, Rownoe and Roney. Amongst the sample recordings in Ireland is the christening of Daniel, son of Hugh and Joanna Rooney on January 31st 1754 at Inch by Gorey, County Wexford. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Ceallach O’ Rooney (chief poet of Ireland), which was dated 1079. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to “develop” often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

Patricia Rooney Mara /ˈmɛərə/ MAIR[2] (born April 17, 1985)[1] is an American actress. She made her screen debut in the slasher film Urban Legends: Bloody Mary (2005) and went on to have a breakout role in the independent coming-of-age drama Tanner Hall (2009), followed by roles in the 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street and the biographical drama film The Social Network (2010).

In 2011, Mara portrayed Lisbeth Salander, the title character in David Fincher‘s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, based on Stieg Larsson‘s Millennium book series. She received critical acclaim for her performance and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama. In 2013, she starred in the thriller Side Effects, the independent drama Ain’t Them Bodies Saints and the acclaimed sci-fi romantic drama, Her. The following year, she starred in the adventure drama film Trash (2014). In 2015, she garnered further critical acclaim for her performance in Todd Haynes‘ romantic drama Carol, for which she won the Best Actress Award at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama and the SAG, BAFTA, and Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Mara is also known for her charity work and oversees the charity Uweza Foundation, which supports empowerment programs for children and families in the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya, one of the largest slums in Africa.

Mara was born and raised in Bedford, New York, a town in Westchester County.[3] Mara’s mother’s family founded the Pittsburgh Steelers and her father’s family founded the New York Giants.[4] Her father, Timothy Christopher Mara, is the vice president of player evaluation for the New York Giants, and her mother, Kathleen McNulty (née Rooney), a part-time real estate agent.[5] She is the third of four children: she has an older brother, Daniel, an older sister who is also an actress, Kate, and a younger brother, Conor.[6]

Mara’s father has Irish, German, and French-Canadian ancestry, and her mother is of Northern Irish and Italian descent.[7][8] Her “Rooney” ancestors originated in Newry, County Down.[9] Her paternal grandparents were Wellington Mara and Ann Mara. Wellington was the long-time co-owner of the Giants, who was succeeded in that position by her uncle, John Mara. Her maternal grandfather, Timothy James “Tim” Rooney, has run Yonkers Raceway in Yonkers, New York since 1972.[10][11] Mara is the great-granddaughter of both New York Giants founder Tim Mara and Pittsburgh Steelers founder Art Rooney, Sr., as well as of Kathleen McNulty Rooney.[12] Her great-uncle, Dan Rooney, is chairman of the Steelers, the former United States Ambassador to Ireland, and the co-founder of The Ireland Funds charitable organization. U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney from Florida is her first cousin, once removed.[13]

Last week, news broke that Sony was planning a Girl With the Dragon Tattoo follow-up without stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara or director David Fincher based on The Girl in the Spider’s Web, the first book in the series not written by creator Stieg Larsson. And, in one report, the Wrap wrote that Alicia Vikander was up to replace Mara in the lead role. But it seems that Mara, who earned an Oscar nomination for her performance as Lisbeth Salander, hasn’t heard the news of her recasting.

“As far as I know, I’m doing it until someone says that I’m not,” Mara said in an interview with E!. “And then I still might do it!”

Dan Do Shean Ford

Tha buaidh air an uisge bheatha,
Tha buaidh air ‘s cha ghabh e cleith;
Tha buaidh air an uisge bheatha,
Dh’Úlainn tË is fuar i.

An cuala sibh ‘s an ýite so,
Mu’n Ford a fhuair an Lamanach;
Gu fan i far am fýgar i,
Mur týirnear i cha ghluais i.

‘S e sud an car tha cunnartach,
Ma thýras i air buill’ thoirt dhuit;
An lýrach far an cuir i thu,
Gu fuirich thu ‘nad shuain ann.

Ma ghluaiseas e do do’n bhaile rith,
A steach Black Brook gu’n caillir i,
Cha dËan i cnoc Iain Shalaich dheth
‘S cha toir a h-anail suas i.

‘S gu’n d’thuirt DÚmhnall Angus ris
An dÈidh dha chuis a rannsachadh,
Tha ‘n uidheam sti˜iridh cam oirre,
Mu’n dËan i call, cuir uait i.

Nis crÏochnaichidh mi’n dan so dhuibh
An d˜il gu’n dËan sibh fabhar leam:
Na inssibh e do’n Lamanach,
Mur fýs e ann an gruaim rium.

Tha Mi Fo Ch˜ram

Tha mi fo ch˜ram a dhiu ro eileadh
Tha mi fo ch˜ram ‘s fo mhoran tursa.
‘S mo cheist air c˜irteir a’ bhrollaich ghlË-ghil.
Tha mi fo ch˜ram a dhiu ro eileadh.

Tha mi fo ghruaimean
‘S gur fhad o’n uair sin
Mo ghaol a’ bhuachaill
‘S cha chual e fhËin e.

Ma gheibh mi airgiod
A bheir air falbh mi,
Gu lean mi Tormod
‘S cha dealaichinn fhËin ris.

Mo cheist an cÏobair
Tha’n cois na frÏthe
‘S mo chridhe ‘g innse
Nach dean e feum dhomh.

Nach mi bha gÚrach
An duil ri pÚsadh
Gun stoc gun stÚras
Gun or gun Bheurla.

‘S Gann Gun DÏrich Mi Chaoidh

‘S gann gun dÏrich mi chaoidh
Dh’ionnsuidh frÏthean a’ mhonaidh;
‘S gann gun dirich mi chaoidh.

Fhuair mi litir a D˜n Eideann ‘g rýdh
Nach feud mi dhol do ‘n mhonadh.

‘S tric a mharbh mi fiadh ard bheann
Air na glinn a b’ýille culaidh.

Fýgaidh mi a nis an tir seo, chan fhaigh
M’inntinn sÏth innt’ tuilleadh.

Bheir mi ruaig gu cÚrs’ nan Innsean
Feuch an dean mi fhÏn am buinnig.

‘S Ì Bl·th geal Na SmÈar Ì

‘S Ì Bl·th geal Na SmÈar Ì
‘s Ì bl·th deas na s™ craobh Ì,
‘s Ì planda b’fhearr mÈin mhaith
le hamharc do sh™l;
‘s Ì mo chuisle, ‘s Ì mo r™n Ì,
‘s Ì bl·th na n-™ll gcumhra Ì,
is samhradh ins an fhuacht Ì
idir Nollaig is C·isc.
