Dia is Muire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my weekly Report froeily1-150x150[1]m Millstreet.

The fine weather prevailed all through the week of our cross-Country Horse Trials which were held at Drishane Castle & Green Glens during the past week. In fact it was a gift from God for all of our outdoor pursuits. The course which covers up to 30 ks was a sight to behold, with many new additions such as colourful jumps and fences , beautiful wood carvings and fountains in the lakes sending beams of water sky high.

This Show marks the end of a long list of equestrian events that were held at our world Class venue over the past number of months.

Shows which brought the whole world to Millstreet from Australia &  New Zealand to America and dozens of European countries, boosting the economy of our town and a tourism value that cannot be measured. And our people gave of their very best to send them back with nothing but good things to say about Millstreet and Ireland on the whole. continue reading…
