Prads-Haute-Bléone is a commune in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department in southeastern France..On 30 July 1944, the hamlet of Eaux-Chaudes was burned by the Wehrmacht.. From 1954 to 1959 the Foreign Legion set up a camp at a place called Les Eaux-Chaudes, which hosted 30 legionaries.. This camp is now in ruins..On 24 March 2015, Germanwings Flight 9525, an Airbus A320 flying from Barcelona to Düsseldorf, crashed in the mountains within the territory of the commune, killing all 150 passengers and crew...

Coat of arms..

A shamrock is a young sprig of clover, used as a symbol of Ireland..Saint Patrick, Ireland's patron saint, is said to have used it as a metaphor for the Christian Trinity..The name shamrock comes from Irish seamróg, which is the diminutive of the Irish word for clover (seamair) and means simply "little clover" or "young clover"..The first mention of shamrock in the English language occurs in 1571 in the work of the English Elizabethan scholar Edmund Campion.. In his work Boke of the Histories of Irelande, Campion describes the habits of the 'wild Irish' and states that the Irish ate shamrock "Shamrotes, watercresses, rootes, and other herbes they feed upon"...The statement that the Irish ate shamrock was widely repeated in later works and seems to be a confusion with the Irish word seamsóg or wood sorrel (Oxalis).. There is no evidence from any Irish source that the Irish ate clover, but there is evidence that the Irish ate wood sorrel.. For example, in the medieval Irish work Buile Shuibhne or 'The Frenzy of Sweeney', the king Sweeney who has gone mad and is living in the woods as a hermit, lists wood sorrel among the plants he feeds upon...

Aer Lingus Group Plc, an anglicisation of the Irish Aer Loingeas meaning "air fleet") is the national flag carrier of Ireland..On 27 May 1936, 5 days after being registered as an airline, its first service began between Baldonnel Airfield in Dublin and Bristol (Whitchurch) Airport, United Kingdom, using a six-seater De Havilland 84 Dragon (registration EI-ABI) biplane,named Iolar (Eagle)... and Effect, my love..Cause?.There is no cause for this.. What cause? Please, ma cherie.. I have told you.. We are all victims of causality.. Action, reaction.. Cause and effect...
