Millstreet has recently been added to a growing list of Age Friendly towns across Cork. This is the result of a process which began when County Cork committed itself to establishing a county where older people can live full, active and healthy lives by signing up to Ireland’s National Age Friendly Cities and Counties Programme (AFCC). Millstreet is now one of 8 Age Friendly towns across Cork – the others are – Bandon, Bantry, Charleville, Cobh, Kinsale, Passage West Monkstown and Mitchelstown.

If you are interested in receiving a pack please get in touch with Millstreet Day Centre who are helping to deliver the packs locally. Just send your Name & Eircode to <email> or Text (087) 9321617

 Plans/projects that are in development/in the pipeline at the moment include:

  • Increase number of Age Friendly Parking spaces in the County
  • Seating/benches
  • Walk ability Studies of the Towns
  • Community age friendly celebration events
  • Pilot a design and colour scheme for age friendly parking in Cork County with potential roll out nationally

Statement from Millstreet Community Council re Bank Closure

Millstreet Community Council Ltd.

The decision of Bank of Ireland to close 103 branches in Ireland was greeted with dismay throughout the country. The inclusion of Bank of Ireland in Millstreet has come as a shock to its many customers not only in the town but also its hinterland. It affects not alone the business sector but also many individuals who supported it loyally over many years.
This is another knife in the heart of rural Ireland. Millstreet is fortunate in having the AIB, the Post Office and the Credit Union but the closing of B of I or of any business is most regrettable in any rural town. It is imperative that if rural Ireland is to succeed and prosper, we must retain all our services to which our people have every right.
We wish to thank the staff for their diligence and dedication over the years and we wish them well for the future.

Eily’s Report – 2nd March

Welcome to the month of March, they used to say that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Time will tell and we shall see. The fierce flooding last week brought torrents the likes of which we haven’t seen in a long time. Fields were turned into oceans and roads into rivers but thankfully no lives were lost. As far as we can recall the year 1986 was the last time we’ve seen such extreme weather conditions, around here anyway. Heavy rainfalls don’t be the same everywhere and I believe that the latest  did not affect other parts of the country as they did here in the south. Nineteen eighty six stands out, for the memories that it left us of hoards of people being stranded in their cars, along the Macroom road for miles outside of  Millstreet. As floods often do it struck in late afternoon when people were making their way home, some from work, others from a day shopping in Cork City, or a Doctor’s appointment, others tourists visiting  the Green Isle to see the sights. Like most people in flash floods, some people tell themselves that they can make it through but it doesn’t always work, and while most people that evening yielded to the situation and accepted local hospitality on that mid summer evening, others forged ahead, to their peril. The area around the Grotto at Liscahane,was noted that time for flooding, but not to a dangerous degree however on that particular evening at nightfall, the ditch gave way to the power of water as an elderly couple were passing and their car was washed in. Luckily for them their car came to a halt with the front facing up to the edge of the road and the floods were torrential over it.  He was shouting to get his wife out, she had been at a specialist in Cork that day as she had cancer, but because his very modern car was electric it could not be opened as the engine was stopped. A tractor was soon brought on the scene, but the pumped wheels  enabled the volume of water to raise it off the ground and the attempt had to be abandoned. In due course the Macroom fire brigade arrived and rescued to terror stricken couple. Our two houses here took in over fifty people that night, many had food in the cars and they brought it in and shared it around .  John D was in the Chip business at the time, he started up and supplied the multitude with hot takeaway on the house. When all were safe and fed a rousing singsong broke out and friendships were forged that still last to this day.  So there was a happy ending after all.

Credit Unions at the Heart of Every Community

Credit Unions at the Heart of Every Community

Friendly, personable, and face-to-face: it’s what members know and love most about their credit union. Credit unions offer a range of services to their members. Lately, there has been a huge increase in members requiring online and phone banking facilities, so Mallow Credit Union: Millstreet has been investing in improving its existing services. More members can now transfer money and apply for loans online, via email – so they can bank on the go, or from the comfort of their home. The next phase will include a new mobile app and Current Account, with a Mastercard debit card. (due later 2021)

 

With the unfortunate closure of 103 Bank of Ireland branches across the island of Ireland, we are once again reminded of the important role of the credit union sector. Credit unions, as established financially inclusive cooperatives, exist solely to meet the needs of their members.
Bank customers can very quickly become members of Mallow Credit Union:Millstreet to avail of the range of services available. So, whether you’ve never been a member, or it’s been a while, we’re inviting you to become part of our story!

Bank of Ireland – Millstreet Branch to Close

In yet another blow for small towns around Ireland, Bank of Ireland today unveiled plans to close 103 branches across Ireland, marking a major shrinkage of its network and another sign of the troubles facing the Irish banking industry. Amongst them are the Millstreet and Kanturk branches.

Bank of Ireland have said that under a new deal it will offer its services through 900 outlets of An Post in the Republic. The closures are due to start from September later this year.

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

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 28th Feb. 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.) 

Where The Road Takes Me

After an horrific road accident in Iraq cut short his career as a trauma surgeon,  Dr. Mike Ryan joined the World Health Organisation in 1996 and went to work in their newly opened unit, dealing in epidemics and infectious diseases.

Born in County Sligo, but raised in Charlestown,  County Mayo, he comes from farming and merchant stock. This Sunday evening he speaks to John Greene on Where the road takes me. 

While we hear about life in war-torn countries fighting Ebola and SARS, the vast majority of the conversation turns to Covid 19. 

He is strong in the belief that, despite several warnings, we had our heads in the sand as to the seriousness of this disease.

How ‘Lockdowns’ should be a last resort if we have no other options and how there’s much more to fighting Covid-19 than getting our own doorstep clean.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

A Day of Floods

Last night brought torrential rain to Munster, but Millstreet seems to have been one of the worst affected spots. The rain gauge at Tubrid measured 78.1mm from when the rain started at 8pm last night to when it stopped at lunch time today. After a very wet fortnight, all this excess rain had nowhere to go but into the rivers which  flooded everywhere. The river gauge at Keale Bridge  reached its maximum at about 2:30pm today, and flooding has been going down quickly since. Below are some photos of the flooding from around Millstreet.
