In Millstreet in Duhallow when i was a young boy
John Joe Daly told the stories of Ireland’s tears and joy
He told stories of the black and tans and civil war and of Tubrid Well
He was an old pipe smoking bloke with yarns in galore for to tell
He told of how Paddy McCarthy a warrior rebel of renown
Died on a bleak night in November in Millview Lane in Millstreet Town
Out numbered by the black and tans he died under gunfire
Stories of such acts of bravery others to take up arms does inspire

We thank Presenter John Greene for advance notice re this evening’s programme. (S.R.)
In the second of a two part programme on Where the road takes me, John Greene speaks to Trevis Gleason about life with MS. Gleason is adamant that he doesn’t ‘suffer’ from it, but lives with Multiple Sclerosis.
While no longer cheffing for a living, Trevis still enjoys cooking. With that in mind, we introduce him to a number of local artisan food producers, and using their products, he tells us how to properly cook fish.

We thank Margaret and John Kelleher of Mount Leader, Millstreet for sharing with us a wonderful historic image of the Tóstal in Millstreet c.1957 where a very large number of Pipe Bands visited Millstreet on the occasion. I was six years old and can recall the huge excitement there was throughout the town and of course the splendid musical sound of the various Bands. Our image from a Ballybunion publication shows the Ballybunion Pipe Band pictured at The Square, Millstreet. Please note Tom Radley’s Forge with the wheel against the front wall.
