Of greatness for Millstreet Tommy O Connor did dream
That they would be the first club in Duhallow to have a senior hurling team
And against the best clubs in Cork County with success compete
And win the Senior County Championship trophy for the green and gold of Millstreet
An under age hurling tournament held yearly in Millstreet Town park in honor of the name
Of the man who was passionate about the hurling game
A love of hurling a great game played with speed and skill
In the youngsters of Millstreet he tried to instil
Millstreet Community School Transition Year Fairtrade Group have conducted a survey of Fairtrade products in our local shops and found a great variety available.
Buying Fairtrade labelled products is a powerful way to make a difference to the lives of people in poorer countries. Simply by switching to Fairtrade, you can help lift people out of poverty, at no cost to you. Fairtrade actually changes lives, by eliminating the causes of poverty. It guarantees fair wages; no child labour; environmental sustainability.
Locally available Fairtrade products include flowers, all Cadbury’s chocolate, some Nestlé chocolate, tea, coffee, drinking chocolate, Green and Black chocolate, and a wide variety of fruit. Keep an eye out for these when shopping locally in Coleman’s Centra, Supervalu, Nibbles, Herlihy’s Centra and Aroma.
The T.Y. class hosted a Fairtrade Fest in Millstreet Parish Centre on 28th February, and lots of people showed an interest. The T.Y. group now hope to set up a Fairtrade group here in town with interested people looking to get more involved.
We hope eventually to have Millstreet become a Fairtrade Town. This would raise the profile of the Fairtrade efforts in the area, and get recognition and media coverage for local outlets offering Fairtrade products. See fairtrade.ie for details.
It would be a big help if shops and community groups also got involved.
