The Narrow Mountain Roadway

Across so many bridges above river, stream and rill
Up the steep rise from Rylane to Mushera and to Aubane downhill
And on uphill to Tullig the road winds up and down
The back road from Cork City that leads to Millstreet Town.

A narrow mountain roadway through the hilly countryside
Through a rugged scenic valley that is known far and wide
Since tourists from all Nations have often passed this way
The scenery breathtaking on a clear and windless day.

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to news report 1120 from Millstreet .

Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this beautiful sunny Tuesday morning  so far…

The Corpus Christi parade was held in the town on Sunday and while some of our people were taking part in it, many others were taking part in the closing ceremonies of the 50th Eucharistic Congress in Dublin. I was thankful to God for giving me the opportunity of being in Dublin. It was an arduous day in many ways but one that nobody would want to miss . Lots of our people made the journey more than once during the week and all were filled with wonder and awe of the great, historic event.

Following the torrential rain during the week for some of the ceremonies, we were blessed with fine weather on Sunday. Sean Radley was there cameras and recorders in hand and he will bring it you when LTV2 programs resume in the Fall, le conaimh De.
