Tubrid Holy Well in the 1950s

Patrick W. O’Leary of Louisville, USA had in August (as well as others) suggested that an opportunity should be given to people nationally and internationally who may at any time wish to contribute towards the upkeep of Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Website …. and to this effect we have arranged to set up an electronic system with the Bank of Ireland here in Millstreet (where our Museum/Website account exists) whereby anyone can transfer a desired donation to the account by just quoting at one’s own Bank our relevant numbers which are:   IBAN No.: IE22 BOFI 9058 0334 0531 43 and the BIC No.: BOFIIE2D.  This was mentioned in August and recently a most kind lady with Millstreet connections and who resides in USA contributed a very generous €100.00 through the above Bank Account.   Sincere thanks to this much appreciated Donor who is our first person to contribute through this newly introduced Bank system for our Museum and Website. Please note also in a recent Tweet that our Liscahane Ogham Stone at the Museum is now available to view in amazing 3D following a visit by two superb Experts from Dublin and Cork Universities to the Museum over the Summer.

  1. I think this is a great idea. Many Americans, like me, have deep Irish roots that started in Millstreet, County Cork. We need to support the town where our relatives lived.
