Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
The month of January is ending in a flurry of group socials, A.G.M.’s and fundraisers for good causes and it looks like the month of February is about to start on the same theme. The A.G.M. of our Community Council will be held at the Wallis Arms Hotel on Tuesday February 12th, starting at 8pm sharp. New members welcome.
Last Tuesday nights meeting of the Community Council was attended by representatives from the Men’s Shed and the Active Retired Group who are in the process of installing a Bowls Rick in the town. To start them off the Council presented them with a cheque for €1,500. It will be a first for Millstreet and the organisers are inviting opinions and advise from the public to help them on their way. Contact Bertie at 087 6793841. Or Kit at 087 2989450

John Martyn was one of the acts that played at the Millstreet Music Fair in 1996:
As anyone familiar with his story will attest, Martyn was, and is, not only one of the finest British singer-songwriter/guitarists of the last 30 years but is also known to be a renowned consumer of fine liquor. Indeed, the last time yours truly set eyes upon him, he was propping up the bar at the Millstreet Music Fair, a rapidly-emptying bottle of Jack Daniels in his hand. Needless to say, this comes as a bit of a revelation to him! “I can’t say I remember that one too clearly,” he laughs, down the phone line from somewhere in the north of England. “It was a good gig, though, I do remember that much.” – Hot Press (2009)
