Eily Buckley

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to news Report 1032 from Millstreet.

Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this calm and wet, Tuesday morning, the last one in September.

This was  very sad week in Millstreet when the remains of 54 yr old Tadgh Moynihan were brought home to his native Millstreet, all the way from Australia where he met an accidental death over a week ago. He was widely revered in Australia and again when his body lay in repose at Tarrants funeral home .The procession of sympathisers when on for many hours. And the Parish Church was full to capacity for the requiem Mass which was concelebrated by seven priests.   A private Mass for the Family was said at the funeral home on Sunday and becuse for Tagdy’s love for Sport, the Sam Maguire Cup was brought for that occasion. He will be so sadly missed. On behalf of our community I want to extend our deepest sympathy to his Family. And may the lovely Tadgh, Rest in Peace.

On a lighter note I want to congratulate Noel C Duggan on succeeding in his efforts to remove sanctions imposed by the SJI on competitors who took part in Millstreet Summer Horse Show this year. It was not an easy task, but he took them on and won. Well done to himself and his family. See our Website for more details.

Still with the family, there’s a notice here to say that a special Mass will be celebrated at the chapel of the Little Flower, Drishane Castle on this Thursday night, September 30th. The Feast Day of St Teresa Starting at 8.30.   Refreshments will be served afterwards and all are welcome.
