Millstreet has recently been added to a growing list of Age Friendly towns

Millstreet has recently been added to a growing list of Age Friendly towns across Cork. This is the result of a process which began when County Cork committed itself to establishing a county where older people can live full, active and healthy lives by signing up to Ireland’s National Age Friendly Cities and Counties Programme (AFCC). Millstreet is now one of 8 Age Friendly towns across Cork – the others are – Bandon, Bantry, Charleville, Cobh, Kinsale, Passage West Monkstown and Mitchelstown.  

 To celebrate the inclusion of Millstreet into the growing list of Age Friendly towns – Cork County Council in conjunction with Millstreet County Council & Cork County Older People’s Council (OPC) have given 200 Age Friendly Activity Packs to be distributed to the Over 60’s around the Millstreet area. If you are interested in receiving a pack please get in touch with Millstreet Day Centre who are helping to deliver the packs locally. Just send your Name & Eircode to <email> or Text (087) 9321617
