Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome.
Our Christmas Lights were turned on with great gusto on Friday evening. Great crowds, including many from other countries and creeds. All wearing Santa hats and sparkly gear adding a real carnival atmosphere to the occasion. If the evening was cold, nobody felt it. We had the pipe band, the community singers and the event was presided over by Community Council Chairman Noel Buckley. There were no shortage of politicians for turning on the lights. Warming cups of tea were passed around. Thanks to a friendly Garda presence who saw that all went well and passing traffic was not held up or delayed.
I have to compliment the hard working ladies who spearheaded it all and the many hands on people who worked so hard to made our Town Centre a bright and cheerful place in the run up to the Festive Season.
And now that the Christmas Season is on please shop at home. We need our shops and they need us. Our shops are always full of gift ideas at Christmas time. And they will all give vouchers which is the easiest way of all to shop. There are many of us who neither want to wade into the masses in the big stores nor know what to get, so a voucher from a local store is a winner every time. Be it a beauty product, hairdressing, clothing, heating fuel , cutting hedges, paint a wall , trim the grass , the list is endless. Good luck to those who love to rummage through the big places, but there are many who almost faint at the thought, and the idea of a voucher says it all. I know it does for me. So please shop at home.

We would like to say how grateful we are to our loving families, good friends, amazing neighbours, and our caring and such a generous community for all your support during our traumatic and devastating day-to-day loss we have to endure.
We would like to thank the following:
Denise Symth who ran the Dublin City Marathon and raised an amazing €3,075.00.
Munster Fire& Safety for printing Viv on the Temple Street T-shirts.
Millstreet Community School, Cloghoula NS, Geraldine Davis (Cork mini marathon) and to each and every member of the Millstreet community who kindly donated money. We would also like to thank Sgt. Paul Lynch from the Millstreet Garda Station and all those that helped with traffic flow during Vivienne’s funeral service.
Finally but not least we have to say how amazed but not surprised we are of a very special young lady Sophia, so sweet and kind who donated her Confirmation money to Temple Street Hospital to help other children like her BFF (Best Friend Forever) Viv.
In these few months since her passing Vivienne’s honour has raised a total of €7,416.75 for Temple Street Children’s Hospital for the ICU Department.
No matter how young she was she made a massive impact on us as a family not to mention everybody else and is still making that impact.
“Viv.……Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place.”
Our Fire Brigade’s recent fire safety week was a great success in the Millstreet area. The five winners of our smoke detector give away are as follows:
