We thank Presenter John Greene for providing advance information on this evening’s programme. (S.R.)
This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene travels to Dripsey to meet Mags McCarthy.
If you’re not familiar with her music and dancing, there’s a very good reason. The past number of years have been spent abroad, expanding her career worldwide – in over forty two countries to be precise.
Having learned to dance at the age of four and mastered many a musical instrument, her big break came when she was asked to join the Irish dance troupe – Rhythm of the Dance’ [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” C103 This Sunday at 7″

After almost six hours of training and examination, six fantastic young Duhallow people successfully passed. So Millstreet Taekwondo Club now has five new First Degree Black Belts in Sliabh O’Connor, Rachel Gaffney, Triona Desmond, Michael Thornton and Sean O’Keeffe. Promoted to 2nd degree was Joshua O’Sullivan. So many hours of training paid off. Well done to everyone.

Now I am bound for a far foreign shore
Farewell to the schoolmates I left in Rathmore
Like wise Nohovil that was once dear to me, and my fond relations is sweet Knocknagree.
Farewell and adieu to each smiling lass with whom I had many a pint and a glass, it is on them I’d ponder wherever I roam and my heart it will wander far back to my home.
Farewell to Millstreet that neat little town of honour, and beauty, of fame, and renown, of pleasure, and pastime and sweet unity, and those distant fond objects remind me of thee
Farewell to the groves round sweet Coomlegane
the pond and the castle to the East lies Drishane
Charming Mount Leader with its murmuring rills,
and its tapering heather grows tall o’er the hills.
Farewell to Kilmeedy that romantic maze that stood so attractive to the travellers gaze
With its gigantic walls that were built in days of yore, by that once proud chieftain called McCarthy Mor
In the West Clara Mountain comes next in my view where from each crystal fountain its source did persue
Where the verdure of Spring and the heather flowers grow and the bright milk maid singing in that valley below,
Its down by that Mountain by each cooling shade by Clara and Mt Leader right oft times I strayed and its heathery slopes where I once laid my brow and its castles and cascades of the banks of Finnow

The Aubane Social Club are hosting a Public Meeting at Aubane Community Centre on tonight Tuesday 14 May at 8.00 pm.This Meeting is in relation to the condition of the Bridges at Aubane Creamary and at the approach of Aubane Community Centre and the condition of the Tooreenbawn Road which is very dangerous. We hope Public Representatives will be there on the Night. We are asking the PUBLIC TO TURN UP AND HAVE THEIR SAY.
Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report. .
The fine spell goes on and spirits are rising more with every sunny day .And all those who took part in the Darkness into Light walk were compensated for their efforts by the Heaven Sent Dawn of that day. Very few homes in the country were without a representative walking for this great cause in aid of suicide prevention and we pray that the outcome will bear fruit a hundred fold. The crowds get bigger every year and it’s becoming a fact that if you do it once you’ll never miss it again.
The Monthly meeting of the Community Council will be held at the Wallis Arms tonight starting at nine, all members please attend.

This is Week 2 of collecting litter around Millstreet, but no change in cigarette butts – the town would have been knocked out of the Anti-Litter Challenge for these butts alone!
Millstreet Tidy Towns would like to thank those who have helped so far, there was a big improvement outside pubs, thank you! The butts in the picture below were collected all around town, not outside the pubs!
The Litter Challenge competition starts this week, May 13th to May 22nd. Judging begins in Tanyard Wood moving up into town. Judging can be at anytime, any day.
We really appreciate everyone’s help so far, don’t forget we are always looking for more helpers to help show off your town’s beauty!
