Gravity Waves under a Supermoon

The recent super-moon on January 1st was exceptionally bright and the effect was even enhanced by some rare clound cover in the above photo taken from Altamount by Fr. James McSweeney. [2u.ie]

The super-moon is so called is when the moon is at its closest to Earth and thus at it’s brightest. We have one or more super-moons every year, but the clouds as shown above are much rarer and get no publicity because they are unpredictable and just appear. They are normal clouds, but the cloud is sitting on the highest point of a gravity wave,  thus appearing to be in straight lines.  [read more …] “Gravity Waves under a Supermoon”

Millstreet Community School representatives at the BT Young Scientist Exhibition

Congratulations to Mark Casey and Eimear Corcoran from Millstreet Community School on winning a ‘highly recommended’ in the Social and Behavioural Sciences category at the BT Young Scientist Exhibition held in Dublin recently. Eimear and Mark researched a project on improving the ranking system for Ireland’s second level schools. There were 104 projects in the final in this category making Mark and Eimear’s achievement most impressive.

Also at the Exhibition, Brian O’ Sullivan, Dylan Sheehan and David O’Donovan presented their project on the effects of heavy school bags on pupils to Minister for Defence Paul Keogh and to Michael Healy-Rae TD.

Jordan Kiely, Abby Ring and Emma McSweeney conducted research on a health related issue:  Are teenagers carrying risk factors now that we would only see in older people before?

Emergency personnel listen carefully as Shannon O’Sullivan and Katie Healy as they explain their project at the Exhibition, that was entitled Charcoal or Eye Liner Markers – Which is better to help the daily lives of firefighters?

All the students are to be commended for the way they spoke about their projects, not just to the Exhibition judges but also to those who simply stopped to enquiry about the research they had carried out. Thanks must also be extended to the teachers who have helped the students prepare for the Exhibition.

Eily’s Report – 16th January

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome.

Millstreet is revving up for the two day mighty machinery show which will run here on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. There is a need for  more accommodation for the event, with some of the outlets not still up and running after the Christmas holidays. Those with some to offer can still contact the Wallis Arms Hotel and leave their details there. Or contact the office at the Green Glens 02970800.

The annual machinery show brings business people from all parts of the country,where they can exhibit their wares indoors, in the comfort of the Green Glens Arena. It starts each day, Wednesday and Thursday at 12 noon and will remain open until 10pm. Free car parking and all  in house services up and running.

The month of January is moving on and all the things that were fazed down for Christmas are up and running again. And please bear in mind that all the reminders that were voiced before the Festive Season, about shopping at Home should continue to take effect right throughout the year. Our stores and services need  our support every day.  Last week I was unable to bring you my report because my system was down and I had to buy a new laptop. Lucky for me, we have a wonderful store in town where I was able to get a brand new model  for four hundred Euro.  At the PC Spare Parts Ireland Store at the Bridge. The friendly service included the full set up of the appliance, and I was ready to go.  And if I needed help it was only a few minutes away. We must never under-estimate the value of our local town.

RIP Dolores O’Riordan

In 1995 when the Cranberries were selling albums as fast as they could be manufactured, the Cranberries biggest show at home on the the No Need to Argue Tour was in  Millstreet. They shook the Green Glens that night, before resting in Limerick for a few weeks ahead of two months touring in Europe and the USA.

Four years later, their next Irish gig was also in Millstreet, and it was another fabulous night in the Green Glens, as they played all the crowd favourites mixed with new songs. Endearing happy memories of two special nights in Millstreet, which vividly stick in the minds as for many it was their first big concert (see comments below).

So it is with sadness that we hear of the death of lead singer Dolores O’Riordan this evening. Our prayers and thoughts are with her family and friends.
