Regional Report 1040 – 23rd December 2010


Eily Buckley

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to news report 1040 from Millstreet.

Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this cold and frosty Tuesday morning.

The Feast of the Presentation was celebrated over the weekend, and  in it’s honour a special Mass was concelebrated in our Church on Friday with all the pupils, teachers and staff of our Presentation National school attending. The Children performed a lovely pageant depicting the life of the Foundress of the Presentation Order, Nano Nagle, and their music and singing filled the air with lovely sounds. Sean Radley was there to film it and I will be screened on LTV2 in the near future.

All  during  last week our shops had offers galore for our special Shopping Week, with many people taking advantage of the occasion to stock up on certain items.  Next up will be the Christmas Art Fair which will be held in the GAA Hall from December 3 to 5th.

Women’s Health and Well Being Information Evening will be held at the James O’Keeffe Institute, Newmarket on tomorrow Wednesday Evening, starting at 8pm.

How we vote

… Cork NW is a very split constituency. There is a respectable Labour vote in Macroom town and Ballincollig/Ovens has a lot of swing voters who will occasionally go Labour. However, the north of the constituency around Millstreet and Kanturk votes as though the civil war is still on…

Taken from the the discussion boards of the Peoples Republic of Cork website, where the discussion is warming up with all the current political turmoil in the country.

Indeed the ability to laugh at ourselves may be the only thing that can save us from losing our minds this time around!
