Eileen Murphy (née O’Leary), Louisville, Kentucky & Adrivale, Millstreet

We extend our sincere sympathy to Eileen’s daughter, Megan and to all the O’Leary Family of Louisville, Kentucky, USA on the very sad departure of Eileen Murphy to Eternal Heavenly Reward.  R.I.P..  Eileen was a True Lady of the very highest calibre – caring, optimistic, witty, friendly, spiritual, generous and sincere.  We had the great privilege of meeting with Eileen during her October 2019 visit to Millstreet.   She felt so much at home here and was especially thrilled to visit Adrivale from where her ancestors emigrated to USA some five generations ago.   She was so looking forward to revisiting Millstreet with her brother Michael and Elwood later this year.  It was Eileen’s brother, Patrick W. O’Leary who established such wonderfully strong links with Millstreet which have been growing stronger and stronger over the years to the extent that the Family has been so generously supportive of so many Millstreet (and Macroom) Projects.  On this Tuesday on Cork Music Station we shall broadcast a special tribute to Eileen on “Radio Treasures” to which she was a weekly Loyal Listener.  Mass will be celebrated for Eileen in St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet on Tuesday, 2nd February 2021 at 7.30pm and this may be viewed on www.churchservices.tv/millstreet

Eily’s Report – 12th January

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

It was a very nice surprise to see the ground covered in a blanket of snow when we got up one morning last week. For various reasons  not everybody likes the snow but nobody can deny that it adds a mighty swell to the mood  with it’s all over cover of the land making everything look bright and beautiful. The overhead images taken by drone over the hills and dales of our rural areas painted a very special picture. The light fall of snow pointing out the details of the various features of mountains and valleys. The loop walks which have been so lovingly carved out on the mountains in recent years for our pleasure are plain to see with the naked eye. They are there for everybody to enjoy, either in the heart of cold  winter or the height of a warm summers day.  The  aerial view is a great help to those who are planning to take to the hills. Thanks to those who share their findings via the drone with everybody.   A young family got the thrill of a lifetime last week when on a visit to Coomatrush lake to find that the recent frost had turned the mighty waterfall into a fairyland of icicles, all glistening in the midday sun.  We are urged to stay in at all costs, not an easy thing to do. So we each have to work out a plan of our own to deal with the Covid problem. T.G we have phones and we can talk all day and night if we like without endangering anyone, we can even see one another . I thought I’d heard it all this week when two of my great grand children played games together, one in Cork and the other in Perth, Australia and my daughter in Cork was able to let me see them playing on her phone.  Their laughter had to be heard/seen to be  believed.

“Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103 Features “The Butter Road”

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 10th Jan. 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

In the middle of the 18th century, Kerry was making a name for itself in tourism circles.  There was a desire in Cork to connect with their nearest neighbours.

As the road network was virtually non existent, a John Murphy from Castleisland was commissioned to build a 56 mile long stretch of road linking Killarney with Rathmore, Millstreet and Cork City.

He would have to include a total of 24 bridges along the way and raise the money himself to do so. 

Having completed the work, Murphy was in financial ruin, but his road network helped one industry to thrive and flourish.

‘The making of the Butter Road’ – the first of a two part programme. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103 Features “The Butter Road””
