Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly report from Millstreet.

The heavy rains in recent times left their mark on the outcome of the  all important harvesting of grain throughout the land and it was disturbing to say the least to see on the news, how grain farmers are faced with huge losses as a result. On a day out to the Clonakilty area, on a fine day recently, my gaze was drawn to the rolling plains of golden corn waving in the gentle breeze, and now to think that they have all been ruined by recent downpours. Our sympathy and prayers must surely go to all those who had their dreams of a bountiful harvest dashed.

But the Spirit of the farmers is never broken and this week many of them will be flocking to the National Ploughing Match and we wish them a happy outing.

 

The bad weather over the weekend did not dampen the spirits of the many people who took part in the fundraising events that were held in Carriganima .On Saturday their fun run /walk was very well supported, with the proceeds to be divided between the Millstreet and Macroom Hospitals.

Then on Sunday a spectacular tractor run was held. Not just Vintage but any tractor at all. Again with great results and all the efforts were in aid of the local bus service with they call CART. Well done to all concerned but chiefly to Seanie and Matt at the pub who spearheaded both events.

 

The monthly meetings of the Community Council resumed at the Wallis Arms Hotel on Tuesday night, following their Summer Break.

The Chairman Noel Buckley presided and was aided by  our wonderful secretary Maura Kiely.  Derry Sheehan, chairman of the Tidy Towns Committee attended. And he was asked by Noel Buckley to convey the best wishes of the Council to the Tidy Towns Committee on their wonderful success in the Co. Council Anti Litter Challenge. And he also wished them well at the National Final Results which will be held at the Helix in Dublin on Sept 26th.

It was suggested that in future that all the voluntary bodies in Millstreet would liase with oneanother  on now and then, on future plans for the town etc,for the common good.
