Eily’s Report – November 23rd

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.

It was a very exciting week in Millstreet with the ceremony of  turning on of the Christmas Lights stealing the show over everything else. The hard work that went into the  preparations paid off and thanks to the mild weather of late, even the hanging baskets on the poles looked fresh and colourful. Due to another engagement I missed the speeches and the actual turning on but it was justly rewarding for me to arrive into town and find the place bustling with a carnival atmosphere. Whole families came to town. Tiny tots were dressed up and balloons were popping.  The place was like is used to be in not too distant past. To have world champ Steve Collins to do the necessary and give his speech only reminded us of how fast the past 25 years have flown since he became world champion here in 1995. His friendly demeanor and openness endeared him to all and the youngsters who got his autograph will treasure it all their lives. In his own inimitable style Noel Buckley chairman of our Community Council spoke for us all in fitting words that only he could put together and Margaret Bourke, treasurer of the Community Council made a presentation to Mr Collins on behalf of the people of Millstreet. The Members of our Garda Siochana mingled with the crowd, their friendly presence adding that protective aura which is always so much appreciated. Capabu shop were serving hot chocolate and other goodies while warming crepes with the flavours of your choice were also available on site. All in all it was an occasion to be remembered for all the right reasons and well done to all those who were associated with it. It only goes to show that when Millstreet is asked to do something, they can do it well. A fuller account plus photographs are available on our website.                  While still with the website, it was great to see our own Sean Radley back in action again  for this historic occasion  following his recent foot surgery.
