Two wonderfully talented Groups from Millstreet Community School will be sharing their superbly creative designs in Limerick at the Regional Final of the Annual Bank of Ireland sponsored Junk Kouture 2019. One of the Groups was recently presented with a prestigious Silver Ticket to the Regional Final by Sportsperson Supreme, Briege Corkery (winner of 18 All Irelands!). Here we share images from Briege’s recent visit to the School. A special recording of the occasion will be broadcast on Cork Music Station on this Tuesday, 12th Feb. 2019 at 10pm. Click on the images to enlarge. We thank Art Teacher, Sandra Moynihan, for background information which we share in the “Read More” section of our feature below. (S.R.)

Irish Mountain Runners Association Millstreet was the true focal point for numerous energetic Athletes from 6:00 am until Sat. Night when no less that three highly regarded Mountain Races took place. The first group of Athletes were transported to Kealkil in West Cork where at 8am they began their journey to Millstreet. Gavin Byrne of Dublin was the first to reach the finishing flag just before 3pm. A second group were transported to Ballyvourney from where they set off for Millstreet. Official tracking was provided where one could follow on a special phone app at what stage the various participants were. And at 1pm a group of almost one hundred climbed Clara Mountain. Here we share some 24 images from what was a wonderfully sporting occasion in Millstreet. Splendid refreshments were provided in Millstreet GAA Community Hall. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)
Marie Kelleher got special mention on Ireland’s Got Mór Talent last evening where she sang Hopelessly Devoted to You (Grease, 1978) for the judges. As she says herself, she’s better at the singing than the talking, and a mighty performance too. Marie and her sister Breeda make up the Diamond Sisters and we’ve known for years how good they are. Watch her performance on Ireland’s Got Mór Talent on the Virgin Media Player (from 18:49 to 20:13) (here)
