Passing Through Millstreet in 1804

Extracts from the Journal of a traveller who passed through Millstreet twice in August 1804:

Friday, 24th August 1804. … From Mallow to Millstreet I took a post-chaise; but like all other travellers in a post-chaise, might as well have been at home, as I can give no account of the prospects, or of the manners of the people. The little vile inn of Millstreet was full of the company resorting to Killarney; so that I fared very uncomfortably: but early next morning set off in a chaise, and arrived at Killarney to breakfast

Sunday, 26th August 1804: Next morning, Sunday, we set out on foot for Millstreet, before six o’clock; intending to reach that place in time for church at twelve. But the day being sultry, and the distance greater than we believed, sixteen Irish or twenty-one English miles, frequent restings became necessary; and it was full eight hours before we arrived at the end of our walk: alas! too late for church, of which the service seemed to have been hurried over with its usual rapidity. On the road we met multitudes of Catholics going to matins, neatly dressed, having their beads and crucifixes suspended at their sides. Can these decent people be the sanguinary rebels who delight in massacre, and seek to turn things upside down? With respect to the establishment, or any other denomination of religion, there seems to prevail a melancholy lukewarmness. There is no church on the road or near it, all the way from Killarney to Millstreet. Neither is any difference apparent, except amongst the Catholics, betwixt Saturday and Sunday; some being employed in burning lime, some cutting turf, some thatching their houses, others sewing or knitting at their doors, and all whistling or singing.

Fr. Tommy McCarthy, Clontarf, Dublin

Monsignor Dan O’Connor (Dublin, Macroom, Millstreet) has kindly alerted us recently to the sad departure of Fr. Tommy McCarthy of St. Anthony’s Clontarf, Dublin to his Eternal Reward.    Fr. Tommy’s Grandfather was Jerry Cahill who was Manager of Millstreet Creamery many decades ago.     Jerry’s daughter, Peggy married Cal McCarthy who had come to Millstreet as Assistant Creamery Manager.   Peggy and Cal were the parents of Fr. Tommy.   We share the full RIP.ie notice below.   Fr. Tommy was P.P. of Cabra West, Dublin at one point of his ministry.  He is believed to be one of the first Priests to obtain a Pilot’s Licence.    He was also Chaplain to Dublin Airport.   We extend our sincere sympathy and prayers to the Family.   Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.  (S.R.) 

The death has occurred of Fr. Tommy McCarthy, Clontarf, Dublin.

Tommy (formerly Blackheath Park, Clontarf), 5th August 2022, (peacefully) in the wonderful care of the staff of the Hawthorn Ward, St Vincent’s Private Hospital, after a short illness, borne with strength and dignity.

One of Many Special Tributes to Jerry Corkery, Ballydaly Upper

We thank Brian Lynch for alerting us to a magnificent tribute on Facebook which his brother, Patrick who lives in Indiana, USA, has paid to the late Jerry Corkery, Ballydaly Upper.   Here we share the heartfelt tribute:

Jerry Corkery passed earlier this week and it felt like a large part of my earliest memories had also left.
He was my Dad’s best friend, and living only two fields away, a regular visitor to our home.
Always immaculately dressed, he would pop in to say a quick ‘hello’ or engage in some intellectual sparring with my dad on politics or some current affair.
Jerry was my Godfather, and a frequent contributor on birthdays, communion, confirmation, and other big events. He helped fund my ‘communion’ bike (a high nelly from Jerry Horgan), and my ‘confirmation bike’ (10 speed Raleigh Medale). For the annual Millstreet Horse Show, he found a way to get me a few pound notes to ‘get some sweets’ as the show was a high-dollar event for my young wallet.
Of course Jerry loved horses, so this was a big event for him too.
Some of my earliest and warmest memories are traveling to Cork or Killarney for a football match, seemingly always between Cork and Kerry. Traveling in a green Land Cruiser with bench seats in the back, Andrew and I would be on one side, John and Thomas on the other, all of us draped in Cork red and white. Jerry and my Dad would occupy the front seats, happily chatting the drive away.
Eurovision is another strong memory, a lot of Lynch kids with a lot of Corkery kids in the living room, drinking tea and watching Johnny Logan make history with ‘What’s Another Year?’
I was often to be found at the Corkery house, hanging around with John, annoying Willie O’ Sullivan, borrowing tools, occasionally a tractor, (and on one memorable occasion with my dad, we borrowed a bull). Despite my too-frequent presence, I only ever saw Jerry angry once: given I had just hit his wall backwards whilst practicing my rally driving in an old Mk2 Escort, I had surely earned it.
For the past 30 years or so I have been an infrequent visitor to Ballydaly, but would see Jerry from time to time. I expect he must have missed my dad, and one reflects on them together again, probably discussing politics.
I last saw Jerry in February, and though the years were evident, he was still Jerry Corkery. On my wall, here in Indiana, I have a framed photo of 1957 Ballydaly Duhallow Championship team, and along with other warriors of the time It is easy to identify Jerry and my dad, both in their prime. Sadly, many of their fellow players have also passed.
On social media, as the sad news broke, ‘Gentleman’ was a consistent comment. Jerry was indeed a gentleman, and a kind man. I was desperately sorry to hear of his passing, and know he will be missed by Mary, his family and grandkids.
RIP, Jerry. You were a big part of our lives.”

Wishing Anna Moynihan and Katie O’Sullivan from Cullen the very best in the All Ireland Fleadh

Wishing Anna Moynihan and Katie O’Sullivan from Cullen the very best in the All Ireland Fleadh in the U18 Solo singing. It is a fantastic achievement that the two girls representing Munster are from the same parish and have grown up together as great friends through the years. There is a long list of brilliant musicians and singers representing Duhallow, Cork and Munster in the All Ireland Fleadh from the area including Ava Thornton, Muireann and Oisin O’Connor and Zara Lehane as well as others. We have no doubt that they will make Duhallow, Cork and Munster very proud in Mullingar. Enjoy the Fleadh. Go n-éirí an t-ádh libh!! 🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶

Eily’s Report – 2nd August

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

The biggest crowd ever for the Rosary, exceptionally long queues for the removal and a full church for his requiem Mass, That was the tribute which was meted out to the humble Pat Lane, who passed away before the weekend and who was Pat Lane. Born 60 years ago to parents Connie and Peggy Lane in Caherdowney.  We take little notice of each other getting on with our daily lives, but it is only when someone dies that we are rocked into a sense of the reality, that they will be with us no more. Born in 1962, we all knew and loved Pat for different reasons. Mine started long before he was born, when I walked the Liscahane road with his lovely mother Peggy Butler going and coming to school every day for years. We were soul mates, like all of us going to school that time we knew one another in depth and that familiar gene seemed to be passed on to Pat for when I’d meet him,  his mom’s name came up every time and some story or memory to go with it. On the wider scale Pat was a friend to everyone and his needs were few. So long as Mary and the children were OK, everything else came second. Pat had no high class education, he worked hard to make a living, be it on a powerful track machine or using the shovel to clean the streets or the shlean to cut the turf, even plucking turkeys at Christmas. If we are wise, we will learn a lot from Pat. He had many talents, play music, sing, recite, converse, which he rarely used and without them by just being himself, he gained the respect and regard of all those who met him over the years. Even the Healy Raes and the  Brennan Brothers came. Many would be wise to take a page out of his book. The shortest sermon I ever heard a priest to give at a Mass was when he turned towards the congregation (They faced the alter that time for Mass) and said in slow profound words, ‘Remember you may be the only Bible that someone will ever read’. The biggest crowd for the Rosary the longest removal and the fullest church,  the lovely Ford sisters with their meaningful songs and music, lorded over by Canon John.

Pat got it right.

We offer our deepest sympathy to his grieving wife Mary and his children Maria, Con, Patrick and all his extended family. No doubt Pat will work hard for them in Heaven as he always did on earth. R.I.P.
