Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to news report 1117 from Millstreet. Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this dull but calm Tuesday morning, the last one in May.
The Month of June is upon us and in the weeks to come the first of the judging for the National Tidy Towns Competition and other smaller Awards will begin. Already there are signs of great improvements, in our area, such as painting of houses, fixing of walls and fences, not least among them the re-vamping of Matt Murphy’s wall, in Minor Row where he so laboriously painted the flags of all the Countries that took part in the EuroVision Song Contest when it came to Millstreet in 1993.

Methodist Update

A number of residents from Drishane Castle join us for our weekly meetings and on the afternoon of Sunday 8th July we are looking forward to going to Drishane to organize Bible based adult and children’s programmes. The children’s programme will include lots of games, crafts and other fun. Then after sharing a BBQ together we plan to have our regular service on that particular Sunday in the main hall at Drishane Castle instead of at our usual venue. We will be joined by a team of visitors from California and this should be a really inspiring service including lots of good music. Again we would warmly invite anyone from the local community to join us at 7pm in the main hall of Drishane Castle on Sunday 8th July. For further information on any of this please contact Laurence at 064 6631613 or email <email>
