This and much more! Happy Listening! Tap on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)
Feis Laitiarain Cullen recently held a local commemoration for Feis Laitiarain on St Laitiarain’s Day 25-Jul-2020. The history of the Feis was presented along with folklore associated with St. Laitiarain. There was a tribute to Diarmuid O’Cadhla (Der Kiely) RIP and his grandfather Sean O’Cadhla who set up the first Feis plus stories, pipes, music and songs. The first Feis was held in Cullen 122 years ago, in 1898 and has been kept alive ever since. The Feis was particularly challenged during the troubles of 1918 when planes flew low to the ground overhead to try to disrupt the Feis, but the Feis goers held strong and continued with the Feis.
Local musicians, world class piper, singers and story tellers performing here carry the music nationwide and beyond with outstanding comments from people from here to New Zealand on social media outlets during the Covid-19 lockdown. They represent the local Comhaltas, Pipe Band and Scór GAA branches and have achieved several County, Provincial, All Ireland and World titles.

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
The Holiday Season is in full swing and not a trace of a plane in the sky. You can’t help wondering what is happening instead of the criss-cross lines up in the blue carrying thousands of people from one crowded airport to the other right across the world. Where did it all go and what have we got instead? You’d think the world would grind to a halt if the likes happened but it hasn’t. No it hasn’t because T.G. people refuse to be downed. In spite of all the knocks they find the grit to keep going the strong helping the weak and everybody learning from the next. Every day we read of people making determined efforts to get back up again, carry the day and survive. That is why it is so important that we support home industry, shop at home, bring your support to those who will stand us in good stead for the future. It is truly amazing what a town like Millstreet has to offer. Last week alone I got my Laptop serviced and my car smartened up without ever leaving the area and at very reasonable rates. There is a host of other services in the area, all depending on our support. It’s great to see so many places being done up and painted and so many businesses getting back to work. Everything forward-looking and no sign of giving up. Long may the trend continue.
What can we say about the response to Sean Radley’s Go-Fund-Me plea for the Museum. Needless to say like everybody else,I’m overjoyed but sad at the same time. Sad because it took so long for the museum complex at the Carnegie Hall to get it’s true recognition. Our museum and website are the heart and soul of what we are. It’s our link with the entire world. It deserves a lot more space to allow it to reach it’s full potential and sadly when the Carnegie Hall was being refurbished some years ago what used to be a two roomed facility for the museum etc.was reduced to one, forcing massive amounts of its artifacts to be boxed and put into storage at Sean Radley’s own expense. Since then he has literally worked miracles in limited space to make today’s wonderful service a reality and talk of good coming out of bad. It took the worldwide Corona Virus plague to wake us up to this great need on our own doorstep. One of Sean’s dreams was to put a book on every shelf and he did when he gave Picture Millstreet to us and to the world, I know he has big ambitions for our museum and website, we help him to achieve it. Shame on us if we don’t. Sean’s work is so very important. When we see the value that is placed in images of the past such as of late with the Centenary of the Fight for Freedom 1900/1920s. The way old photos were tracked down and treasured his store of pictures must run into hundreds of thousands and all are kept in pristine condition and dated and named for generations to come to enjoy and by which family records can be traced. But his pictures are only one aspect of what he has in store for the future. Long may our dear Sean continue to do what Sean loves best. To enhance his community ,in so many ways. Thank God for HIM. And Thank You Sean.
As we reach our final day (Tuesday, 4th Aug. 2020) of the GoFundMe fundraising project in aid of Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Website we are so totally amazed at the superb generosity of so many wonderfully kind Supporters locally, nationally and internationally. Presently with fees deducted our total in the GoFundMe Project is €4879.59. The phenomenal response far exceeds our expectations and will truly afford us the opportunity to maintain and, above all, to further develop our services. In addition to our GoFundMe campaign further generous Supporters have sent donations by post and also delivered by hand. We shall share on our website the final amount donated on this coming Thursday. While we have sent a personal thank you message to all our GoFundMe Contributors we wish to extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has so very kindly responded to this annual appeal for the Museum and Website. Sincerely – Seán Radley, Curator, Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Website Team Member. [read more …] “Final Day of Phenomenal GoFundMe Project for Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Website”

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 2nd August 2020 at 7pm on C103. (S.R.)
There’s a mixed bag of subjects and a lot of miles to cover on this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, as John Greene goes in search of interesting stories and the people behind them.
In Churchtown we look back at the lives of legendary horse trainer Vincent O’Brien and poet Seán Mac Giolla Mear.
After his sister and father died young, Hubie Hurley from Farnanes, tells us how his wonderful mother, managed, with just ten shillings a week, to make skilled and artistic tradesmen and a nurse out of her three sons and daughter.
Once a stately home on beautiful lands, Ryecourt House near Crookstown was one of three local houses burned during the ‘troubles’ in June of 1921. We pay a visit to Rosaleen Tonson-Rye who still lives on the grounds.
A native of Toames in Kilmichael, Canon Humphrey o’Mahony joins us from Scotland to talk about the dissolution of the monasteries in Ireland, and how Kilcrea Abbey in Farnanes was one of the largest to fall foul of Cromwell and his Henchmen’s murderous plans.
