The staff of Penny Dinners have asked us to pass on their thanks to everyone in Millstreet who has contributed so generously to Anna’s Collection for Penny Dinners.
We have been absolutely stunned by people’s generosity. The amount collected so far, particularly over the Christmas period, has completely surpassed our expectations. It makes us very proud of our little town.
Thanks to the customers of Guy & Dolls, Colemans Centra and SuperValu. A big thank you to the staff, pupils and parents of Millstreet Community School who donated a staggering volume of goods. The photo shows Stephen and some of the Transition Years with just a small portion of what was collected.
We also have to thank the following people who have facilitated the collection and /or delivery:
Mary Murphy of Guys & Dolls • Mary & John Coleman and the staff of Coleman’s Centra • Joe Fitzgerald and the staff of SuperValu • Gerard Ryan of Millstreet Community School • TY students Millstreet Community School • Michelle O’Keeffe • Donagh Reardon.
Collection boxes are still in place in Colemans Centra, SuperValu and Guys & Dolls.
January is a very difficult month for Penny Dinners because the need is so great in this bitterly cold weather and donations dry up after Christmas. We did a delivery over the weekend and [read more …] “Anna’s Food Collection for Penny Dinners”

Oh one morning bright as Phoebus shone quite illuminative
When Flora’s decorations had painted the green
With footsteps quite unwavered—from Millstreet I roamed Eastward

That have won such admiration for this far famed dwelling station,
Whose proper appelation—or name—is Drishane.
There’s a mill for grinding corn and an engine ploughing the farm,
Fine oxen that are stall fed, the largest to be found:
And the yard resounds with screech of guinea-hen and peacock.
The swan upon the lake and he sailin’ all around.
The lime-kilns are kept blazing with columns most unsparing, [read more …] “Song: The Plains of Drishane”
