Joanne O’Riordan – Young Person of the Year

A huge congratulations to Joanne O’Riordan who won the Young Person of the Year Award in Dublin last Saturday:

Joanne O’Riordan, Young Person of the Year, for her determination in highlighting the challenges faced by people with disabilities today. 16-year-old Joanne was born with a rare condition – total amelia syndrome, leaving her without arms and legs, and is one of just seven people in the world with the condition. In April, Joanne was invited to New York to deliver the keynote address at the United Nations International Telecommunication Union’s conference, Girls in Technology. At the conference, she challenged leading women in their field to build her a robot. Joanne was presented with her award by singer/musician Niall Breslin, AKA Bressie.

Regional Report 1133 – 18th September 2012



Eily Buckley

Dia is Mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to News report 1133 from Millstreet.

Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on lovely sunny Tuesday morning, following a showery night.

A high-powered meeting was held at the Wallis Arms Hotel last Tuesday night at which the Prizes for the best places in town were presented by the Tidy Towns Committee. There were prizes for the best business front and the best private front.

In spite of the months of bad weather, the judges still had a hard task to decide the very best. Their final result was as follows. Best business front went to Colemans. With Ursula’s Clara Inn a good second. Best in the private section went to John and Charlotte McSweeney Sycamore Drive. Out of 16 short listed Teresa Kelleher, Joan Wall, and Mary Murray got the awards. Very special recognition went to the Presentation Convent, and Kay Ryan Killarney Rd. for their wonderful display of flowers and plants. Many congratulations to all the winners. And indeed to our wonderful Tidy Towns Committee who kept the pressure up the whole time. Following the presentations, some lovely refreshments were served, and all involved enjoy a social evening.   Our town is being completely re-surfaced at the moment, and of course the bottom line is, please keep Millstreet and our approach roads clean and tidy.
