Presenter: Seán Radley (deputising for Eily Buckley)
Good morning, Patricia and greetings, dear Listeners, from Millstreet in Co. Cork. In this our 1,006th Regional Report we hear about Easter preparations, upcoming “Round the Fireside” features, LTV2 updates ….. and there’s more – much more!
Our good Friend, Jerry Lehane of the Millstreet National Monument Committee, reminds us that the traditional Easter parade led by Millstreet Pipe Band will proceed from West End after 11.30 a.m. Mass at St. Patrick’s Church onwards to The Bridge and Main Street arriving at our National Monument in the Square. This highly significant Celtic Cross memorial of course was unveiled by Austin Stack in 1927 and has undergone a number of maintenance works over the years. The most recent restoration work has borne very impressive results. Remembering the late Conchubhar Ó hÉalaithe – his daughter, Nóirín, will read the 1916 Proclamation, prayers will be recited, the wreath laid and an address delivered by a significant speaker.
So Eily Buckley conveys her greetings, in Irish Gaelic, to her listeners during her weekly radio report from Millstreet Town, County Cork, Ireland.
Eily has been in Nebraska since St. Patrick’s Day. She will be in York County a short while longer, before heading to Lincoln next week to celebrate her cousin’s Diamond Jubilee in the priesthood. Father Paddy O’Byrne, now retired from the Diocese of Lincoln, is the link between Eily and her rural Bradshaw hosts, Elizabeth and Terry King, and Toni and Kent Allen.
When the Kings and Allens wanted to travel to Ireland last year, Fr. O’Byrne pointed them to Eily’s bed and breakfast in Millstreet, a town of about 1,400 people in northwest County Cork. About another 3,000 live in the surrounding countryside.
The Nebraskans soon counted Eily among their friends, and welcomed her when she flew to Nebraska with Fr. O’Byrne.
