Drishane Convent Postcards from 1910

After trying to find English-speaking vocations in England , the Sisters of the Child Jesus – Nicolas Barré (EJNB) left for Ireland in 1908 . And set up Drishane Convent in 1909 in order to supply a growing need for Sisters who were fluent in English in communities in Asia , and more particularly in Malaysia. Looking to make Drishane better known in Ireland, in 1910 the sisters published postcards, in black and white, and also colorized.

The Infant Jesus Sisters have now published these 18 postcards … some which we have seen before, others we have not. As an example, the postcard below shows the castle (covered in ivy) to the left of the two trees, and the main house between the two trees.

To see the photos,  go to the IJS archive website, and you will find the photos in the embedded PDF’s (which you will have to scroll down through)

Historical Reenactment Group’s Tribute to Captain Paddy McCarthy

On Sunday afternoon, 29th Nov. 2020, a very impressive Historical Reenactment Group having travelled from the Kilmichael Site visited Millstreet to pay tribute at Mill Lane to the memory of Captain Paddy McCarthy the centenary of whose death in 1920 occurs about this time.  A superbly dignified ceremony took place by the Group who came from Cork City and County.   Following an uplifting introduction the Proclamation was read with great feeling.   Appropriate prayers were recited.   Seán Ó Cróinín from Cork City delivered an excellent speech regarding the life and death of Captain Paddy McCarthy.   A gentleman with beautiful native Irish sang in a magnificent manner “Mo Ghile Mear” and “Amhrán na bhFiann”.  The Organisers recognised that due to COVID-19 the event could not be advertised but hoped that in time to come a much bigger Tribute Event could take place with a far bigger attendance – at a time when COVID-19 will be a memory.   Here we share a selection of images from Sunday’s event and we thank Seán Ó Cróinín for sharing two images recorded at Kilmichael over the weekend.  (S.R.)

Spectacular Bealach Images Above the Fog Today

SEASON OF ADVENT

This weekend we begin the season of Advent which is a time of waiting for the great event – the coming of Christ.  Pope Francis has described the Advent season as a time of conversion to make space in one’s heart for Christ to come and fill it with joy. Vigilance, he continued, means “paying attention to our neighbor in difficulty and allowing their need to draw us in, without waiting for him or her to ask us for help.”  May we continue to be vigilant to the needs of our family members, our neighbours and our community as we journey through these challenging times.

Eily’s Report – 24th November

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

The November wind is howling outside but still the little birds come and feast on the peanuts that I hang out for them at if it was calm and pleasant. It’s a well known saying that we are all built to meet our task in life and the little birds are a sure proof of that. Talking of meeting our challenges, with the end of the lockdown another week away, patience is wearing thin in a lot of people. Tempers are fraying and like the long distance runner  the finishing  line was never so much sought after. But there is always light at the end of the tunnel and the hope of a successful vaccine is enough to make us all try a little harder and make sure that we don’t lose the trophy for the want of that final push.   So keep on praying and keep on trying.

Tipperary’s Colin O’Riordan Shares Millstreet, Boherbue and Banteer Connections

We are most grateful to Joan Galwey of Kilkenny (née Corkery of Ballydaly, Millstreet) for alerting us to the fact that Tipperary Footballer supreme, Colin O’Riordan has direct connections with Millstreet, Boherbue and Banteer.  (S.R.)     Joan writes as follows:
“While the hopes of Cork football were dashed in Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Sunday, one Tipperary native who was crucial to Tipperary’s success has strong ancestral connections with Boherbue, Banteer and Millstreet. 
Colin O’ Riordan  played a key role in helping Tipperary win the Munster Championship for the first time in 85 years, and earned the respect of the nation in his post match interview (which we share below). As the surname O’ Riordan might suggest, some of his ancestors originated in  Co. Cork. Colin’s grandfather, Tim O’ Riordan, left Farrendoyle, Boherbue, as a young man and settled in Fethard. Both Tim O’ Riordan and his brother Michael O’ Riordan made Tipperary their home, but never forgot their Cork roots. He would have been a very proud grandfather on Sunday, had he lived to see his grandson return from playing AFL in Sydney, to play his part in this historic win for his adopted county.

Colin O’ Riordan’s g-g-grandmother was born in Coomlogane, Millstreet, about 1853. She was Julia Corkery, sister of Big Jerh, and she marrried James Twohig of Banteer in 1884. Their daughter, Ellen Twohig married Thomas O’ Riordan of Farrendoyle in 1918. Ellen and Thomas O’ Riordan had 11 children, and are both buried in St. Patrick’s Cemetery, Millstreet.Colin’s gran-aunt, Julia, became a nun and was known as Sr. Agnes in Drishane Convent. Sr. Denise (Noreen) O’Riordan, was another gran-aunt of Colin O’ Riordan. Sr. Denise was a member of the Sisters of the Incarnate Word, Ohio, for 72 years and her passing earlier this year aged 87, marked the end of an era for that generation of the O’ Riordan family.  Congratulations and continued success to Colin, his parents Michael and Imelda, and the extended O’ Riordan family in Farrendoyle and Tipperary.”

Colin’s wonderfully inspiring words following the historic win by Tipperary on Sunday, 22nd Nov. 2020:

“I can’t put it into words. It’s an emotional day for me. A few weeks ago I didn’t think I’d be here and just to be out there with the lads giving it your all for the sake of Tipperary, I can’t put it into words.

It’s the best feeling I’ve had in many years. It just fills me with pride so much, I get emotional even thinking about it. To me, it’s one of the best days of my life…

We’ve put in stepping stones with Tipp for a long time. Obviously I wasn’t there for the last few years, playing with Sydney or whatever. To come back to the stepping stones that these boys have out in for the last five years since I’ve been away.

This isn’t about me. It isn’t about Colin O’Riordan coming out to give interviews, it’s about the boys out here. To me, it means so much to be able to put on the Tipp jersey. It’s something I will never take for granted, it’s something I’ll respect to the day I die, that I had the opportunity to wear the jersey.

It’s a massive opportunity for me. I just want to say that I’m extremely thankful to Sydney for giving me the opportunity to play this game.

They were 100 per cent within their rights to say no to me and refuse me permission to play. They had no problem. John Longmire and all these lads over there with the Sydney Swans are an incredible organisation.”

Seáno Shares Important Information Relating to Captain Paddy McCarthy

We are most grateful to Seáno Murphy of Knocknagree and formerly of Mill Lane, Millstreet for sharing a very important memory and two historic images relevant to the recent Centenary Commemoration of the death of Captain Paddy McCarthy at Mill Lane on 22nd Nov. 1920.  Seáno writes:

“Seán, in keeping with your report on Paddy McCarthy’s death I have to mention the story my mother Katty Dineen told me about the night he was shot by the side of Lena and Agnes Dennehy’s house.   She (my mother) and her mother moved three doors down to Neily Hickey’s garage for safety.   Paddy’s body was brought down and laid in front of mother’s window where he died the following morning.   My mother had to wash away his blood from under the window.   I am sending two photos to illustrate the exact location of that very window where he died and also of the  back of Lena Dennehy’s house where he was shot.”

An image from the 1950s showing Seán Casey of Cloghoula taken in Mill Lane with Lena Dennehy’s house in the background outside which Captain Paddy McCarthy was shot. At that time the entrance to Mill Lane from Main Street was much narrower. Tap on the image to enlarge. (S.R.)

Taken in 1947Seáno’s brothers – Jim and Frank outside their home in Mill Lane. It was by the window on the right where Captain Paddy McCarthy died one hundred years ago on 22nd Nov. 1920.
