Eily Buckley


Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to News report 1245 from Millstreet.  Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this cold and frosty Tuesday Morning.

First thing this morning I want to thank the ever reliable, Sean Radley for stepping in for me last week.

Our town is taking on a real Christmas atmostphere as we enter the month of December. The lovely tree in the town Square looks even lovelier this year with all the newly planted trees around it lit up as well in matching blue lights.

The tree is lovingly erected every year by polish young man whose name is Majic. And even though he is about to go back to his own country following ten years working locally, he vows to come back to Millstreet every year to erect our Christmas tree. Many thanks Majic. And every good wish for a Happy Christmas to you and Anna and little Simon.

O’Leary’s Family Butcher’s newly refurbished store is bright and colourful in the same area.

Tony of the popular Craft Burchers, always at the ready to please while across the street by  our SuperValu store the popular Aroma Café has reopened just in time to greet the steady stream of Christmas shoppers and provide them with a restful cup of coffee or a sustaining meal.

At the other end of town Herlihy’s Centra store is brightly lit and at the entrance to our Town Park the Water Fountain got a Christmas facelift by way of new lighting and decorations. [read more …] “Regional Report 1245 – 2nd December”
