Eily’s Report 27th September

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly Report.

We sought them here were sought them there, we sought them here, sought them everywhere and it paid off. Not wanting to bore you about wild mushrooms, I have to tell you that they were found in the most unlikely places once the word was out that they were in season.  Before I go on, I want to thank the kind person who told us about them at the start and even went on to share them with the neighbours. How nice it is  that we still have kind people who are willing to share. Some were found by walkers in the Town Park and even in St. Mary’s Cemetery as well as many other places,   keep looking, the season may not be over yet. Wild mushrooms don’t have the long shelf life as the cultivated ones do, so the plan is to put them into an egg packer and it will prolong them for a few days longer. By the way this plan applies to all mushrooms.

Running a School in Ukraine from Millstreet

Nova Kakhovka in Ukraine, was taken by the Russians on the first day of the invasion. For the first couple of months Professor Igor Serdyuka still did his job as the director of a 500 student school. But in early June the Russian occupiers told him to start teaching the Russian curriculum. When he refused, they threw him in jail. He escaped the war with his wife Tatyana, and they have found refuge in Millstreet, but he still organises teaching the students online.

Sky News visited Millstreet recently and interviewed the couple, which can be watched on

Millstreet Vintage Club Makes Superbly Generous Presentation

On a very regular basis Bernard Crowley, PRO Supreme of Millstreet Vintage Club, uploads on the Millstreet Website many excellent promotions and outcomes of various highly praiseworthy fundraising events organised by Millstreet Vintage Club with splendid pictorial illustrations by Danny Lane.  Motivated by a suggestion by Luke Hurley it was decided that under the coordination of Dan O’Riordan and his wonderfully dedicated MVC Team that the Tractor Run on Sunday, 8th May 2022 would be held in aid of Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Community Website.   We are hugely grateful for the recent presentation of such a magnificent Cheque resulting from the splendidly successful Tractor Run.   This will greatly assist us to defray our substantial costs relating to the Museum and the Website.   Here we share images from the Cheque Presentation at Millstreet’s Carnegie Hall on Monday, 18th Sept. 2022.   We also recall the very memorable Tractor Run on 8th May when we were blessed with superb weather, such a joyful and inspirational spirit and a truly happy atmosphere.  We express our sincere thanks to Millstreet Vintage Club and the very many people who so generously contributed including a most magnificent contribution from Patrick W. O’Leary from Louisville, Kentucky, USA who very happily attended the Cheque Presentation.   Tap on the pictures to enlarge.
