We thank Catherine Desmond for the following Notice. (S.R.) : “I want to relay the following to Millstreet Tidy Towns and other interested parties: The Historic Monuments Committee of Cork County Council are holding three one day workshops at the beginning of December and invite you or any of your constituents who might be interested to attend. The theme this year is aimed at individuals and community groups and professionals interested in the cleaning and caring of archaeological and historic monuments and commemorative memorials. The training events aim to promote understanding and good conservation practice in relation to cleaning and maintenance of monuments, with a specific focus on cleaning and caring for carved stone, including headstones, and metalwork. · Hibernian Hotel, Mallow (Monday 2nd December2019); · Walter Raleigh Hotel, Youghal (Tuesday 3rd December 2019) ·O’Donovan’s Hotel, Clonakilty (Wednesday 4th December 2019). The workshops will be of interest to heritage, community and Tidy Town groups, commemoration groups throughout County Cork. Starting at 10am, each daily workshop will consist of illustrated presentations and talks in the morning and afternoon presentation of case studies by experienced professional specialists. The training workshops will be completed by 4.30pm. · The workshops as stated will be held at the following locations on the following dates: Hibernian Hotel, Mallow (Monday 2nd December 2019); Walter Raleigh Hotel, Youghal (Tuesday 3rd December 2019) and O’Donovan’s Hotel, Clonakilty (Wednesday 4th December 2019). It would be good if an individual or two from the Tidy Towns would attend. I, and I believe Hannah Kelleher, will attend the workshop at Clonakilty. I would be delighted if they could come to Clonakilty with me. It’s important that bookings be made immediately: the CCC run out of seats fairly quickly. If I have the names and numbers of interested individuals, I’ll make the bookings for everyone.”
For those interested in these superb Workshops please email millstreetmuseum @eircom.net or contact 086 825 0074 and I shall pass on names and telephone numbers to Catherine. Sincere thanks for reading this Notice and we wish every success to this very interesting Project…Seán Radley

This young male dog has been hanging around Clara Road and West End for a week or so. He has been seen in the presbytery, the Convent School, and wanders around but no collar. He’s not afraid of kids, and ran to the girls coming out of school today, but he has no road sense as was in front of the school cars. If he’s yours, you know where he is.
