It’s the last week of March, the third week of the Season of Lent. It was a very exciting week in Millstreet with the Sacrament of Confirmation been given to 97 young boys and girls representing Millstreet, Cloghoula and Cullen schools. Our big church was packed to capacity and the sunny day outside added to the wonder of it all. The Girls from the Presentation Convent School sang the hymns through the ceremony with His Lordship Bishop Ray Browne as Chief Celebrant. Families and extended family members came from many parts of Ireland as well as from many other countries to join their loved ones in the Holy Celebration.
Following the ceremony the Bishop and Priests traveled to Dromagh to impart the Sacrament of Confirmation on a number of Children there, and we would to thank the Clergy for the wonderful ceremonies and congratulate all the boys and girls who were Confirmed and wish them God’s Blessing in the future.
Blessed with splendid weather some 97 young people received the Sacrament of Confirmation at St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet on Wednesday, 20th March 2019 with Bishop of Kerry – Bishop Ray Browne – administering the Sacrament. The Liturgy, singing, music and the excellent coordination of photographic recordings – all were a true credit to the various Coordinators. Bishop Ray stood for not only class group photographs of Presentation N.S., Millstreet B.N.S., Cloghoula N.S. and Cullen N.S. but also for every individual as well as family groups. Here we share some 28 images from the most impressive celebration. Click on the pictures to enlarge. (S.R.) [read more …] “Celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation 2019 in Millstreet”

Another one of Cork’s Showband stars has passed away.
Over the Bank Holiday weekend, Declan Ryan died peacefully at his home in Blackrock on Cork City’s Southside.
On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene pays tribute to the man who once fronted the ‘Regal’ and ‘Arrivals’ showbands.
We hear excerpts from an interview recorded with him over two years ago, in which he describes leaving his job at the parcels office in CIE, to become a fulltime singer and musician. At seventeen years of age, Declan, as lead singer with the Regal, was now earning twice as much as his father was.
We hear how his big hit ‘I need you’ came about, and reached number six in the Irish charts in 1965.

The response to the fundraising Daffodil Day 2019 in aid of the Irish Cancer Society within the Millstreet area was hugely supportive with a most impressive total (as of now) of €4,100.00 lodged into the account of the Irish Cancer Society. We thank Phil Sheehan of the Coordinating Team for the update. This is a very encouraging result from today’s tremendous work by several Volunteers outside Herlihy’s Centra, Millstreet Post Office, Supervalu and Coleman’s Centra – especially when one considers that weather truly affected the overall national response and the ICS is not confident that the annual target of €4 million will be reached this year so nationwide the appeal continues. Here we feature some 10 images from today’s Daffodil Day in Millstreet Town. The Organising Team extends sincere thanks for such a superb response here in Millstreet. Click on the images to enlarge.

Whichever way you look at it we had a wonderful St. Patrick’s weekend here in Millstreet. It had something for everyone and the weather was good.
Saturday a convoy of double decker buses, went through our town ferrying over 5000 revelers to the annual Tech Works Festival at the Green Glens Arena.
On Saturday night our Comhaltas Ceoltóirí group played in the Church at the 6.30 Mass. Then on St. Patrick’s Day our wonderful Pipe band played at the church grounds as people were going in to the 11.30 Mass which was conselebrated by three local men, Fr. Paddy O Byrne, Fr. Billy Radley and Fr. Sean Tucker. Then the band played while entering the church and took part in many parts of the mass. The Church Choir attended and their combined grand finale literally lifted the roof, when they joined our lovely organist Jane to play a rousing recital of Highland Cathedral. No words of mine could do justice to the joy it brought to all in the church on St. Patrick’s Day. Spellbound, is the best way to describe it.
