Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to news report 1107 from Millstreet.

Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this lovely Spring morning.

Our St Patrick’s weekend was one of the most successful and the most pleasant ever. The Pipe Band played the priest and alter servers into the church for 11.30am Mass, Canon FitzGerald blessed a bowl of Shamrock and distributed it among the band members.
