News Report 1088 – 25th October 2011



Eily Buckley

Dia Is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to news report 1088 from Millstreet. Fondest greeting dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on thiscalm but overcast Tuesday morning.

Two nights stand out among all the rest on our town’s annual calendar,  as far as good entertainment is concerned. St Stephens Night and the night of the Fancy Dress Ball. Last Friday night our town was a mecca of fun and colour and sheer enjoyment. All week people of all ages scanned the shops and their findings found them dressed in regalia that they would not be seen dead in the following day. Every kind of paint and colour   was used to good effect. And best of all it was all in a good cause. This years proceeds will go to Cope, for the care of people with special needs. Once again the Aubane Social Club and the Wallis Arms Hotel have to be lauded for the running of this great annual event, and for such a great cause.

Not to be outdone the proprietors of the Pub in Carriganima are holding their
Fancy Dress Ball on Sunday  night next October 30th. So get ready to do it
all again.

The Big event here this week will the Pony Owners Show at the Green Glens
from Friday to Sunday. Entries have surpassed all previous years so
competitions will go on late most nights. And admission is free throughout.
Sunday night will see the graduation ceremony and fancy dress on horse
back. This is where the 16 year old riders have to pass on to a higher
grade, and they do it with style and panache. It is free for the taking so
do not miss it. This Show is held for Charity every year.

Next after the Pony Show at the Green Glens Arena will be the Self Build
from November 9th to 13th.

And please remember to put your clocks back one hour this weekend. And get
ready to draw the curtains early and settle down to a nice cosy fire.
