Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a Cairde and welcome to news report  1007 from Millstreet.

Fondest greetings dear Listeners and I wish you all the very best on this wet ,’n calm ,Tuesday morning.

It’s great to be back with you again following two wonderful weeks in far away Nebraska ,land of Indian tribes and descendents of  so many  Irish Immigrants.

Many congratulations to Fr. Paddy O Byrne who celebrated the Golden Jubilee  of his Ordination at Lincoln, Nebraska on March 29th.where he had missioned for over forty years . It was indeed  an honour for me  to be present at this historic ceremony which saw the mighty Cathedral of that City packed to capacity. Up to a 140 priests in all attended, as did countless numbers of nuns, The Knights of Columbus and the hundreds of people to whom he has endeared himself over the years.  The popular Fr. Paddy will be further honoured by his own people here in Millstreet at a later date.
