In a small few cases of the recently launched Millstreet Calendar 2020 a printing error has been discovered in that the months of February and November are missing and there is an advertisement for some business in another part of Ireland. If you discover that you have bought one of these incorrectly printed Calendars please contact Millstreet Community Council and a replacement will be provided. Apologies regarding this but it only relates to a very small number of the popular Calendar. (S.R.)

The lashing snowy rain and high winds and thunder and lightening didn’t deter our St.Vincent de Paul committee from hosting their annual church gate collection at the weekend. They took refuge in the church porch which gave them a degree of shelter but it was still a trying task. And now that the collection is over, their work is only beginning. We are indeed indebted to this dedicated group who carry out this work every year. They work tirelessly to bring help to many in accordance with the various needs. And their work goes on right up to the last minute on Christmas Night. Their main concern is that some people might be left out, so they are asking those who are in need to let them know. Every case will be dealt with in strictest privacy and respect.
Congratulations to Betty Corbett, Gurrane who won €1000 on the Maura and Daithi Show on Monday.
Christmas Parties are being held at a great rate all over the place and I havn’t a hope of keeping pace with them all. The people of Aubane held theirs on Friday night. The Mass was said by Canon John, the Church choir attended and the readings were done by the people of the locality. In his homily the Canon praised the efforts of the local committee for the great work they do in keeping rural Ireland and its customs and folklore alive and well. A large crowd attended and there were a few newcomers, some from other lands and the closeness of the event gave rise to new friendships and conversation. Following the mouthwatering refreshments, the Colmhaltas Group took the stage and played some lilting music that set some toes a-tapping. Following that we had local beauty, Breda Moynihan ,better known as a Diamond Sister and she had us all joining in at a rousing sing-song. We had young children and some bordering 90, all enjoying the same entertainment in a close and friendly setting, how could you ask for more. Many thanks to the people of Aubane and long may their Social Centre continue to flourish.
