Dan Collins Ford

It was after World War II that Dan Collins, then a blacksmith apprentice at Coleman’s Garage in Millstreet, Ireland, came to the United States alongside his brother Johnny. Collins first worked at a Ford agency in New York, and within a few years news of his expertise as a mechanic had spread all the way to Oregon where Gordon Smith, owner of Lakeview’s local Ford dealership, offered Collins a job. With only a few dollars to his name, Collins traveled cross-country to Lakeview to join the Ford operation, which subsequently burned down soon afterward.

Despite the setback, the Collins brothers persisted, and by 1953 established a repair shop in Lakeview. Two years later, having built a Dodge-Plymouth agency alongside their repair shop, another fire nearly ended the business. The family regrouped, and by 1958 had bought the Chevrolet dealership from Buz Thompson, which in 1960 suffered yet another fire.  continue reading the full article “Dan Collins Ford”

Looking for Dineens of 20 Upper Mill Lane

Looking for information on 1901 census about Building 20 Upper Mill Lane, Drishane, Millstreet. My father’s uncle James Dineen was a tailor in Millstreet until his death in 1915. His wife Nora (Casey) Dineen was a dressmaker and they had a Jeremiah Riordan, age 15, living with them. He might have helped them with their business.

Also would LOVE to chat with any Dineen, Casey or Riordan Family!

The fine weather continues to bring out the best in all of  us. The children returning to school after the Easter holidays cant say but that they were not able to enjoy the great out of doors for two weeks.

And while those involved in the land are working long hours to get the spring work done, householders are forging ahead with painting their places and doing up their gardens.

The Tidy Towns efforts on Saturday were very well supported.  Again the fine weather encouraged the crowds to come out and take part in the first big clean-up of the season which is sponsored by Avonmore Electrical, Okeeffe’s SuperValu and Cork Co. Council. From now on we are all urged to keep up the good work. Paint and clean and weed and dig, do whatever is needed for us to gain those last few extra points in this years National Contest.

In Johnny Hickey’s Grove

A long time ago and from here far away
In Johnny Hickey’s grove in Inchaleigh children’s games we did play
As primary school-goers long before our lives prime
This is going back the years more than six decades in time

Only memories of them with me now do stay
The friends of my childhood where are they today?
Since we all had to follow our lives destiny
Though i often do wonder where today they might be
