Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to news report 1021 from Millstreet.

Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this nice rich,calm Tuesday morning.

The people of Cullen enjoyed great celebrations recently when Arch Bishop Raymond Leo Burke of St Louis, came to visit. His forebears came from the Cullen area and his cousins the Cremin, Burke, and McSweeney still live there and came to meet him. He was appointed Prefect  of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, by his Holiness the Pope, which is equal to Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Archbishop Burke could very well be in line for Pope at some future point. LTV2 cameraman Wm FitzGerald attended the celebrations and filmed it for your viewing when programs return in September and there’s a full report on our website.

Last week the West Coast of Clare resounded to the sound of music at the Willie Clancy week in Miltown Malbay, with many fans from the South making the journey for their annual feast of traditional entertainment. And to continue the trend I have a note from Jack Roche to say that the weekly sessions have resumed at Bruaic na Carraige,Rockchapel, on  Tuesday nights for July and August starting at  9pm.  Great  nights not to be missed, great place to take visitors and tourists.
