Eily’s update – 12th April

eily1Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome.


The new monthly magazine entitled Duhallow Today, has been very well received. It looks bright and cheerful, and it provides a new means of information about all the goods and services that are available in the North Cork region plus lots of news. Next issue is due out  at the start of May.

Many people are without Internet and WiFi since the weekend and the dreadful weather on Sunday did nothing to ease the situation. Countless events and fixtures had to deferred or cancelled leading to a lot  of disappointment.

But a few die-hards did succeed in sticking to their program. A 1916 Memorial Commeration event went ahead in Millstreet on Sunday as planned. Starting with Mass in our parish church at 2.30 pm. Our  Community Singers, took part, with solos sung As Gaelige by Diarmuid  Kelleher and Kathleen Philpot .

In torrential rain and high winds  the parade then proceeded through the town and following a brief  stop at the Monument the followers retired to the function room at the Wallis Arms Hotel where they continued with their planned program.

Millstreet Tidy Town Association in conjunction with Cork County Council are delighted to announce, Team Millstreet Clean-Up, on Saturday 16th April 2016 from 10am to 1pm.  For those who wish we will be meeting in The Square, Millstreet. It is a great opportunity for all to our town beautiful. All details are available on http://www.millstreettidytown.ie/
