As our Breton Friends from our Twin Town Pommerit le Vicomte return home following an enjoyable week in Millstreet and the West of Ireland we feature on Cork Music Station tonight at 10:00 a special musical recording presented at Coolefield House (the home of Michael, Pam and the Thornton Family) on Sunday 16th Sept. 2018. The wonderfully talented musicians are members of Millstreet CCÉ coordinated by Claire O’Loughlin – O’Leary. And, of course, “Radio Treasures” on CMS also features our mix of the very best of instrumental music and song plus our musings sharing lots of interesting information. Feel most welcome to join us tonight 9:30 to 11:00 and consider contacting us on our Seán Radley Facebook chatline. Patrick W.O’Leary from Louisville, Kentucky also enjoyed the musical evening at Coolefield House. Here we share images from our Musical Presentation and the leaving of our Breton Friends on Sat. 22nd Sept.. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my report.
Last Friday was National Culture Day and here in Millstreet it received a reaction from almost every section of our community in some shape and form, and to cap it all there was a grand farewell ball held at the Wallis Arms Hotel in honour of our visitors from our Twin Town in Brittany Pommerit-Le-Vicompte. Well done to all those who put in the effort and gave us a wonderful night to remember.
And now we have some uplifting news coming on stream, not least among them the Air Ambulance Service to be centered at Rathcoole Airfield. And is due to be up and running within weeks rather than ‘at sometime in the future’.
There are plans to install a bowls rink at the GAA Hall and Kickboxing is starting at the same venue and we even have a Dog Walking Service for a mere €5 a walk, ready to take your call. Details are on the website.

On Monday, 24th Sept. 2018 while visiting Ballyheigue in the Kingdom of Kerry Fr. Dan Cashman, S.M.A., Myra Sheehan and I just happened to meet Tony O’Connor formerly of Millstreet and now residing in Tralee while he also was taking a walk on a magnificent sunny day upon Ballyheigue Strand. We got to view Oisín Kelly’s splendid statue of Roger Casement and to experience the exquisite setting of Ballyheigue Bay. Then we got home in time to witness the very impressive harvest moon over Millstreet. Here we share a selection of images from the eventful and enjoyable day. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)
