Regional Report 1175 – 9th July 2013




Eily Buckley

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a Cairde and welcome to News Report 1175 from Millstreet.Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this glorious Tuesday morning.

Well it’s all over and it will go down in History as one of our finest achievements. The Four day Gathering Festival was an outstanding success,to put it mildly. I suppose the first one to thank is God himself for sending the beautiful weather which brought every body young and old out to get the feel of the warm sun and to take part.

Over 20 events took place over the four days and each just as good as the one before it. Our website is full of pictures telling the full story of it all. One event which was not on the list was the All Ireland Fishing Championships which brought fishermen from the four provinces. The top prize going to Ulster.

We are indeed indebted to the five person committee who did all the planning and the running of the weekend. With a lot of help from their friends. People came from overseas and all parts of Ireland to be with their families and they were not disappointed. It would fill volumes if I were to go through it all in detail,so I will have to leave it there. And again thanks anyone who helped in any way to make us all so proud of our place for the Gathering Weekend Festival 2013.

A note from Maeve Neenan to thank all those who helped to make the 10k race in memory of her famous Dad Willie so memorable and so successful.
