Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
In Millstreet, St. Valentine’s Day was widely celebrated starting off on Friday and continuing right through the weekend. Our flower and chocolate outlets did a roaring trade as did our jewelry and perfume shops, the food outlets and the all-important cards that say the tender words that any lad or lass would be loathe to utter. The business people of the Town have to be commended for their efforts in dressings their premises in a wide range of brightly coloured decorations which didn’t go unnoticed. It all helped to distract our minds away from the approach of the demon “Denis” the Hurricane. All things considered, I think that we didn’t fare too badly around here.No flooded homes or power cuts and no road blocks due to fallen trees. By and large our people are good at listening to the warnings and obeying the rules which is vitally important. We did have a few claps of thunder and when I hear that I of course reach for the Holy Water and sprinkle it around and pray that all will be safe. But the very next thing for me at any rate is to think of the dogs. I don’t own a dog, much as I’d love to, but dogs are terrified of thunder and if at all possible, should never be left unattended during a thunder storm. I think that the bold “Denis” is staying around for a little while longer,so remain on your guard.
