Thanks to Dan Cronin from Macroom sent us this programme of St.Nick’s v Millstreet in the Cork County Senior Football Championship in 1964. Dan is a collector, and if anyone had programmes they don’t want, he’d gladly take them. Contact Dan via Facebook.
St. John’s GAA Club would like to thank everyone who supported our recent collection. It is very much appreciated.
Oh dear, the common cold has caught up with me. They say there is no cure for it, so i’m determined to make myself as comfortable as I can while it takes its course.
The town and a lot of the surrounding countryside was rocking to the boom boom of the Work Shop music fest which was held at the Green Glens Arena on Saturday with fans being bused in from many parts and bused out again when it was over.
On this coming Saturday October 20th, the pleasant lowing of the country’s prize livestock will fill the air at the same venue for the National Dairy Show. The previous day will see them arriving in their beautiful wagons and brought inside where they will be put through rigorous preparation to make them look their best on the parade ring next day. It’s an interesting sight to watch them being prepared. It involves a full body shower followed by a full body blow dry and then a hair trim, making every rib of hair play its part in the final result which could lead to a rapturous win or a disheartening defeat.Specialists are often brought from abroad to carry out this work, and tail extensions are often used to enhance the final appearance. And at the end of the day they are carefully returned to their box to be ready for the next show. And devoted owners often lay down beside their beloved animals for the night. All very interesting.
“Looking for relatives of Margaret Denahy born on July 1, 1885. Father was Denis Denahy. Immigrated to the United States as a child. Margaret was my grandmother. Her mother was Johanna Shea. My grandmother had a sister named Claire. They left Ireland sometime in the 1890’s. Margaret’s obituary said they moved from Millstreet, Cork. If you can connect to riversidecemetary.com and look at the genealogy part and type in her last name Roney. She is listed as Margaret Roney, born in 1885, died in 1979. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Ed Tom Roney” <email>
