Dia is mhuire diobh leir a Cairde and welcome to News Report 1260 from Millstreet. Fondest Greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this lovely Tuesday morning of Easter Week.
Following our wonderful Holy week Church ceremonies, we were blessed with a real sunshine Easter Sunday and Monday. The crowds came out to every outdoor event with great gusto. Our Country Park which celebrated its 20th birthday recently was parked with people of all ages. And there was something for every one. Season tickets at a mere €20 and the opening of the entrance from the Liscahane Road made a big difference. The Park is open every day. For enquiries ring 029 70810.
Meanwhile down at the green Glens and the mighty Drishane estate, the “Wheel of Millstreet Keeps on turning.” Equestrian events started there with the Millstreet Welcome Tour on Thursday April 2nd and will continue until Sunday April 12th. Admission is free all the way, and all are welcome. In excess of 170 horses completed the challenging cross-country coarse on Monday afternoon alone. A wonderful sight to see.
And all roads lead to the Green Glens Arena on tomorrow Wednesday night for the “Rock for Ott”concert.
Fundraiser, with the ever popular Liam OConnor, and the Fear ‘n Tighe is the one and only Michael O Muiratheataigh.
