Very Special Tribute to Presentation Sisters

Cllr. Noel Buckley addresses the large congregation at the end of the Mass of Thanksgiving for the Presentation Sisters in St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet on 20th Nov. 2012.   Great credit is due to the Presentation N.S. on the coordination of a very special liturgy during the special Mass.   We shall upload a full feature at a later point.   Sr. Mercedes and Sr. Noreen were very especially remembered in many tributes.    We wish both Sisters every fulfilment and happiness as they leave Millstreet for Co. Kerry where they will continue to carry the lantern of Nano Nagle doing good for so many as always .   The Presentation Order has been in Millstreet for the past 172 years.   (S.R.)


Sr. Mercedes Behan, Presentation Sister

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to News Report 1142 from Millstreet.

Fondest Greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this wet and wintery Tuesday morning.

It was a sparkling week here in Millstreet when our Living Scenes Project swept the board in Brussels  itself, as they took part in the European Year of Active Ageing  Competition. Out of a field of 1,000 entries from all over Europe,  they were awarded second place. School Chaplin , John Magee and founder member Eansie Twomey travelled to Brussels for the presentation.  And on their return on Thursday a gala event was held at the school. It was attended by Dr. Mary Surlis of NUI Galway who devised Living Scenes in the first place. Many past pupils attended as did our Parish Priest Canon John FitzGerald. Past teachers were also there and many others who have been associated with the project since it was started here at our Community School 7years ago. Sean Radley was there to capture it all on film. Look up the website for more details. It was a proud day for Millstreet and its Community School.

 In Aubane last Friday night they had the launch of their centenary DVDs , and they are on sale from any committee member at €10 each.

The Aubane Committee have a long line of events planned in the run-up to Christmas. Starting with a cake decorating night on December 5th Given by one of their own, Margaret Guilfoyle .

Other items will be announced as we come nearer the time.
