We are an active, retired couple visiting Millstreet for the second time while staying for a few days at Killarney. I know a great deal about my ancestors, the Leaders, who were from Millstreet, my ancestor owning the Leader house on Clara Mountain which was in a dilapidated state when we visited in 2003. I know of no-one actually living in Millstreet with the Leader name. My third cousin told me that I would be related to all of them there to some degree. I would like to meet some of them to say “hullo.” Way back, the Leaders and the O’Keefes were related as well. Anyone out there doing genealogy? Would you like to make contact?
Millstreet puts its best foot forward in salute of the national feast day to acknowledge St Patrick on Tuesday. The town’s Community Council are planning a late afternoon celebration with a new emphasis placed on school participation, increased prizemoney and entertainment for young and old.
The official parade is up and away at 5pm from the Dairygold Co-Op store and continues with a formal review stand in the Town Square. A special prize will be presented for the best window display.
Millstreet Pipe Band again figure on leading the parade and it complete a hectic day after a St. Patrick’s Day recital in Ballydaly after 9.30am Mass and participating in the Killarney parade.
The above appears in the Millstreet Matters column on the Corkman. This week it also discusses the People of the Year awards, Millstreet Country Park, the Community School Lenten campaign, GAA and more
It was a lovely sunny day. Full of emotions, energy, happy tears and laughter. Tina and Glenn are living and working in Galway. They came along to Tina’s home town to get married. The ceremony took place in a beautiful St. Patrick’s Church in Millstreet, Co. Kerry, Ireland. Reception in an elegant and romantic Avenue Hotel in Killarney. (From Bartek Witek Photography)
