In Pictures: The Parade of Nations through Millstreet


After Wednesday morning’s rain, Noel C. got onto the man above and asked for sunshine for the evening, and as is normal he duly obliged. Just in time, the clouds parted and suddenly we had a lovely sunny evening for what has now become a tradition – the Parade of Nations through Millstreet, bringing a slice of colour and fun to town.

Led by the Millstreet Pipe Band the sixteen nations dressed in their finery and national colours, paraded up through the town, and back down to the Green Glens where the official opening of the Championships took place, followed by a concert and entertainment.

A big bualadh bos to all that helped organise, and participated in what was another lovely event.

“In The Light of Other Days” by Margaret O’Donoghue Sullivan – Splendid Autobiography

“In The Light of Other Days” by Margaret O’Donoghue Sullivan 

“In the Light of Other Days” is an autobiography from Margaret O’Donoghue Sullivan and documents her childhood growing up in rural Ireland.

Margaret lived on a farm with her parents and siblings and the love and importance of family was at the heart of this. The book contains fondly recalled events and stories during the author’s childhood as well as detailing the changing face of farming during the industrialisation of Ireland and of Ireland’s rich history, infused with evocative poetry.

The book is available in Wordsworth Millstreet, Easons bookshop Killarney, Eagers bookshop Killarney, Amazon. It’s a great read for adults and also for children.

We thank Margaret of Rathduane for presenting a copy of her splendid recently published book to Millstreet Museum.  It was the very well known Tom McSweeney who recently launched the Book in Killarney.  Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

Sincere congratulations to both on such highly prestigious national coverage. Kate Mary indicated to me that she had to be in Smithfield Square, Dublin not long after 7am for the photo shoot with her Grandson! Click on the picture to enlarge. (S.R.)
