Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
The mixed weather, had mixed effects on both sporting and farming events over the past week. The dedicated Cullen Special Needs association got the full brunt of the rain on Sunday for their 31st annual event in aid of their worthy cause. It was also the Feast Day of their local Patron St. Laitiarnan. Thank you to their many supporters the financial outcome was on par with former years which means that their annual Christmas Mass and party will be as good as ever.
Well done to all concerned.
Millstreet Community Council are hoping for better conditions for their Party in the Park on Sunday this coming Saturday July 27th .

Its open to all ages, so do come along and be part of our great Millstreet Party in the Park.
Our Tidy Towns committee are doing great work in beautifying our town. But as always they need more help to achieve their goals. Recently they have been busy painting unoccupied houses in Church Street and with a little bit of help from their friends they could turn this historic street into a cheerful colourful entrance into Millstreet. More and more foreign countries are coming to events at the Green Glens etc and its up to everyone to make our town a place for them to remember for all the right reasons. So please offer your help to the few who are doing all the work.
