Alan sent us this message asking whether there were ever breweries in Millstreet or Kanturk in the past:
“I’m trying to do a bit of research on old distilleries and breweries in the Cork/Kerry area. Having lived in Kanturk for only two years, my history of the area is sketchy but I do understand that there has been evidence of a brewery in the town back in the early 1800’s. I was just wondering, could I get some more information? Where was the original site? Along the river I imagine but any details would be greatly appreciated.
I haven’t come across any evidence of brewing in Millstreet but if
anyone can point me in the right direction, that would be amazing!”
We do know that in Millstreet, an ale and porter brewery was established in 1835. The site was the Tanyard field of meadow (now the site of the Dairygold Co-op store). This continued and flourished until the Famine. Does anyone have any more information?

Team Coach supreme, Jimmy Murphy, shares the following uplifting facts about the wonderfully successful St. John’s GAA Club (with Players from Aubane, Mushera, Millstreet, Kilcorney and beyond) especially after being victorious in the recent Final played at Ovens:
“A truly wonderful Team but also a truly unique Team. Four families of brothers and two O’Keeffes – Denis and Paddy. The Sheahans Tom and Adrian. The Kellehers Brian and Denis. The Corkerys Donal, Neil and Paudie. Also Dave Barrett – son of Selector, John Barrett. Dave is Uncle to Eric and Eoin. But most unique of all must be Father and Son – Huey and Kevin Sheahan. Truly unique stats and all the Team have great friendships.”
We thank Jimmy for sharing such very interesting and quite fascinating facts about an amazing GAA team with superbly inspiring dedication and sporting spirit. (S.R.)

We thank Kathleen Moylan of Castlemagner for the following very comprehensive Castlemagner Christmas Diary 2018. (S.R.)
Maggie Polpin is a widowed mother of four living in rural Ireland, now sole owner of the Polpin family shop and farm since the death of her husband.
She is a complex figure, far from the clichés of Irish femininity which
preceded her. This is a hard-bitten, uncompromising woman who puts her
personal security above all other concerns. She rejects the place which
cultural precedent has laid out for her and chooses to drive all of her
children away rather than nurture them like a mother can by trying to force them to do things that will benefit Maggie.
This production is a Castlemagner Sinsir Club (Senior Citizens) fundraiser
and your support would be greatly appreciated. It promises to be a great
night of entertainment and will start at 8pm each night. Tickets are
available at the door for €10.00.
The Annual Cookery Demonstration with Hazel Bourke, Assolas, will be held next Wednesday night December 5th in Castlemagner Community Centre at 8pm.
Mulled wine and Mince Pies will be served on arrival.
Tickets for this event are €10.00 and are available at door on the night. [read more …] “Castlemagner Christmas Diary 2018”

When the people of Cork City and County moved into the 1980s, they did so with a swagger. Life was good, there was plenty of employment, and the real Taoiseach had been watching over them for ten years. They felt immune to any crisis.
But the storm clouds of a major recession were gathering. Within eighteen months, Fords, Dunlops and Verolme Dockyard had all closed, with the loss of hundreds of jobs. By 1985, the city was in chaos.
On this week’s Where the road takes me, John Greene meets journalist Michael Moynihan, whose new book – ‘Crisis and Comeback – Cork in the eighties’, has just been published. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm on C103″
