Millstreet Church Virtual Choir will begin this Sunday singing the entrance and recessional hymns while Deirdre Tracey will play two organ tunes during the celebration of Mass.
A new dimension to our weekly “Lunchtime Favourites” Show is being introduced this Sunday. It all emerges from a suggestion we received from Millstreet Active Retirement Association: It is very creatively suggested that we introduce the new idea in the following manner: “A very special welcome today to all our Friends in Millstreet Active Retirement Association who because of the present Covid restrictions in place cannot resume the weekly dancing and yoga in the chair classes we all enjoyed so much.
So, my dear friends, like Din Joe in The Good Old Days, I invite you all to Take The Floor and dance, march and exercise to your heart’s content over the next hour of our weekly “Lunchtime Favourites”.
Let’s start the ball rolling with a selection of lively marches. Here we go….” And I can promise you a wide variety of wonderfully rhythmic tunes – where one will wish to dance, waltz and relax.
We shall be chatting about the images below and referring to anupcoming interview with Stefan Healy and also the creative and very useful invention recently launched in Dungarvan. And of course we shall be playing the very best of songs and musical selections for our global audience. This week we also continue our focus on songs from around Ireland on our “Grand World Musical Tour of Ireland” Tap on the pictures to enlarge. Happy Listening!(S.R.)

We thank Mary Fahy of Murphy’s Terrace, Millstreet for a wonderful selection of historic items which she has very kindly presented to Millstreet Museum. Included are many historic receipts, documentation relating to the CYMS Millstreet Branch plus the original drawing plan for the Liscahane Grotto which was officially blessed and opened in the late 1950s. It was Mary’s father – the late Jackie Forde of Church Street, Millstreet who created the plan for the Grotto. Jackie was gifted as a superb Craftsman and completed many beautifully designed inlaid tabletops which would be quite similar to the Religious Bookstand which has also been donated to Millstreet Museum.

We would like to thank the Dromtariffe, Millstreet and Cullen communities for rallying around us for the last few weeks. On Monday morning 3rd August, people streamed into our house and stayed with us for those 4 difficult days. Preparing our house, bringing food and drink, setting up tables and chairs, directing traffic and most importantly of all, sitting for a chat. We are blown away by the kindness of everyone. We are truly blessed to live in such a wonderful community. From Dromtariffe Hall to Rathcoole Rovers and Dromtariffe GAA who walked with us as we left Derrinagree Church on Niall’s final Journey. The road was lined from Derrinagree to Millstreet with our wonderful neighbours, friends and relatives, who carried us through that heart-breaking journey. We would like to thank every one of you for taking part in that lovely tribute. We really appreciate all your hard work, thoughtfulness and kindness. For those of you who couldn’t make it, but sent flowers, a Mass card or lovely letter, your kind words mean so much.
A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
The Autumn sun shone bright and warm on Saturday for the First Holy Communion of 14 boys and 17 girls from the town schools. Like so many other things it was a ceremony with a difference which allowed parents only to accompany them to the church. The little boys went first at 10 am and the little girls at 12.30. It was indeed a strange sight, so different from the large number of parents, siblings, grandparents, great grand parents and cousins who filled up the church in the rear in former years. But on returning home, to the wide open spaces, where social distancing wasn’t a problem, lots of pictures taken and they were able to enjoy a wonderful celebration, the memory of which will remain with them forever. Family photos were taken to record the great occasion and the story of their 2020 Holy Communion Day will be recalled in many the year to come, every time they look at them again. We wish them God’s Blessing for the future and say heartfelt thanks to Canon John, the teachers and all those who helped in any way to bring this very difficult situation to such meaningful and happy conclusion.
