Last night brought torrential rain to Munster, but Millstreet seems to have been one of the worst affected spots. The rain gauge at Tubrid measured 78.1mm from when the rain started at 8pm last night to when it stopped at lunch time today. After a very wet fortnight, all this excess rain had nowhere to go but into the rivers which flooded everywhere. The river gauge at Keale Bridge reached its maximum at about 2:30pm today, and flooding has been going down quickly since. Below are some photos of the flooding from around Millstreet.
Tullig Medical Centre will be closed to Patients from 2pm on Thursday, 25th Feb. 2021 until Noon on Friday, 26th Feb., to facilitate the Vaccination of People Over 85. For emergencies during this time please ring the Surgery.

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.
Once again the wind is howling down the chimney, coupled with torrential rain. It has pounded our world without a break for many weeks now, and then when we got some lovely sunny hours on Saturday and Sunday can anyone blame us for getting out and making the most of them. It’s a whole month since I ventured out and had no inclination to go because of the weather as well as the lockdown but the warmth of the sun and the smell of the freshness in the air, was a God-given invitation to get my five k’s. Lots of others got the same notion, because the world outside had come to life since the last time I was out. It was a joy to see them heading up the mountains leaving the car parked for once and stretching the legs. For obvious reasons I travelled in my car, travelled the highroads towards Mushera where I encountered large numbers of people of all ages. Some on foot others like myself driving plus a good number of elderly folk being taken out for the day by a caring friend or family member. It was all there to be enjoyed and savoured, before the next bout of storm and rain. A gift from God to be grateful for.
