Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly report.
Our annual September Horse Fair left a lot to be desired on Sunday. The weather was great for once but the crowds didn’t come. There were too many other fixtures within striking distance of Millstreet and our fair fell victim to them all. The few people who did turn up were very disappointed at the poor attendance. I hope that this years poor show will not set a precedence for the future. We have two such shows in the year, one in March and one in September and people often come to meet other people whom they never see again until the next one. It is a pity to lose any event which brings people together like that.
September is well in and there is a vast amount of activities available for people of all ages and capabilities to become part of . You can choose anything from the highly active and competitive to the more laid-back type or many others in between. Maybe you need help or maybe someone needs you to help. It’s a well known fact that the best way to get happy is to make someone happy.
