Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to news report 996 from Millstreet.
Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on the snow ‘n ice free Tuesday morning.
The Community Council Meeting which was deferred will be held to-night at the Wallis Arms Hotel starting at 8.30, All members please attend.
The awful happenings in Haiti some days ago, shook the world, but here in Millstreet we felt a kind of affiliation with that country, because last years our community fundraised to enable Jerry Pat O Leary to go to that troubled land, as part of the Haven organisation, to build houses for those people who are so, so poor. Jerry tells us that the place where they worked is well away from the epi-centre of the earthquake and that the houses they built are still intact. He is having a meeting with the Haven organisation to-night to decide what further help they can be in Haiti. We will keep you informed. And please note that a fund for the cause has been opened at our Credit Union.
