“Millstreet Memories” by Noel Bourke

Author, Noel Bourke has wonderfully fond memories of his Summer Holidays together with his brother, Paddy in the Millstreet of the 1950s especially when they both arrived from their home in Kilkenny on their annual holidays being greeted by superbly welcoming Relatives from Murphy’s Terrace and Kippagh and beyond.  Over the past few years Noel has dedicated lots of energy and time in comprehensive research.   The fruitful result is this 272 page book “Millstreet Memories”which will very shortly be available to buy in Millstreet at “Wordsworth” in The Square, Millstreet at €15.00.   I believe it can also be obtained by post for an extra €5.00.  Some twelve poems are also included as well as excellent place name explanations.   Blank and white photographs further enhance the publication.   Had it not been for COVID-19 there was to have been an official launch of the book in Millstreet and in Ballydaly.  Here we share some images of the book cover.  Tap on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
