Willie Neenan Memorial Race

Millstreet Athletic Club would like to thank everyone who supported our road race on Friday night from the sponsors, stewards and the local Gardai to all the runners and walkers.  It was lovely to see so many people in the town and along the route.  It was a great success and a very enjoyable evening.  Thank you to Geraldine Dennehy for the excellent photography.

This week we salute Lena Kelleher who recently retired following  almost 30 years as treasured Matron of our local Community Hospital. Lena was a nurse there for 10 years before that. Her devoted staff gave Lena a meaningful send off,  and at a later date she will be  furthered be honoured by our Community Council in appreciation of the wonderful work that she has done for countless numbers of our people over the years. On leaving she ceremoniously handed over the Keys to Noreen McSweeney , who will be our acting Matron.
