New York Poet Patrick Most Impressed by National Dairy Show 2018

Renowned Poet Patrick Thomas Hammer from New York is presently paying his yearly visit to Ireland and especially to his Millstreet Relations – the O’Rahilly Family of Tanyard Wood.   We thank Patrick for the presentation of his most recent Book of Poetry to the Museum.   He is blessed with such a wonderful sense of humour and is so superbly witty.  He is a magnificent Ambassador for America and so impressively proud of his Irish roots.   As well as visiting Millstreet Museum on Saturday, 20th Oct. 2018 he was truly impressed by a visit to the excellent National Dairy Show at Green Glens – an event which this year received RTÉ television national News coverage.  On a future “Radio Treasures” on CMS we shall feature a special interview with Patrick in which he recalls a splendid visit to John C. Casey’s New York shop.  Here we join Patrick on his Millstreet visit.   Click on the 27 images to enlarge.  (S.R.)

Now that’s a very happy photograph!  Poet Patrick with his O’Rahilly Relatives and Friends before visiting the Museum and the National Dairy Show.   There is always such a royal welcome for everyone at the home of Michael and Betty O’Rahilly.   Brendan Murphy provided a most enjoyable Video Presentation of some of our most popular LTV2 programmes….including our snow coverage, storm reports, wind turbines and lots more.
A little surprised how big Millstreet is….on the map!

Media presence!

Eily’s Report – 16th October

Oh dear, the common cold has caught up with me. They say there is no cure for it, so i’m determined to make myself as comfortable as I can while it takes its course.


The town and a lot of the surrounding countryside was rocking to the boom boom of the Work Shop music fest which was held at the Green Glens Arena on Saturday with fans being bused in from many parts and bused out again when it was over.


On this coming Saturday October 20th, the pleasant lowing  of the country’s prize livestock will fill the air at the same venue for the National Dairy Show. The previous day will see them arriving in their beautiful  wagons  and brought inside where they will be put through rigorous preparation to make them look their best on the parade ring next day. It’s an interesting sight to watch them being prepared. It involves a full body shower followed by a full body blow dry and then a hair trim, making every rib of hair play its part in the final result which could lead to a rapturous win or a disheartening defeat.Specialists are often brought from abroad to carry out this work, and tail extensions are often used to enhance the final appearance. And at the end of the day they are carefully returned to their box to be ready for the next show. And devoted owners often lay down beside  their beloved animals for the night. All very interesting.

RTE’s “Ceilí House” from Rockchapel on Sat. 0ct. 20 and 27

The RTE radio one programme ‘Ceilí House’ will come from Bruach na Carraige, Rockchapel, on Saturday, 20th and Saturday, 27th October after the 9pm News.  It will feature the Rockchapel Comhaltas based group, Ceoltoirí Sliabh Luachra, performing some of Sliabh Luachra’s oldest music.  Much of this music comes from the manuscripts of Dave Dan Curtin of Stagmount, Rockchapel and the manuscripts of his father, Dan Curtin that go back to before 1850, and contain an older layer of Sliabh Luachra music that predates the polkas and slides that characterise the area now, and also from the manuscripts of Dave Leahy of Mountcollins who died in 1907.

We thank Jack Roche for this important notice.  (S.R.)
