Eily’s Report – 25th September

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my report.

Last Friday was National Culture Day and here in Millstreet it received a reaction from almost every section of our community in some shape and form, and to cap it all there was a grand farewell ball held at the Wallis Arms Hotel in honour of our visitors from our Twin Town in Brittany Pommerit-Le-Vicompte. Well done to all those who put in the effort and gave us a wonderful night to remember.

And now we have some uplifting news coming on stream, not least among them the Air Ambulance Service to be centered at Rathcoole Airfield. And is due to be up and running within weeks rather than ‘at sometime in the future’.

There are plans to install a bowls rink  at the GAA Hall and Kickboxing is starting at the same venue and we even have a Dog Walking Service for a mere €5 a walk,  ready to take your call. Details are on the website.

The Community Council are holding an extra meeting tonight at the Wallis Arms to further the plans for the Bowls Rink. Starts at 8.30 and all interested people please attend.


Keep an eye out when shopping at SuperValu for their Smart Store Cooking.  Aimed at giving you better value for your money, cutting down waste and keeping you fit and healthy.


Our thrift Shop in Minor Row is well worth a visit, very often they have brand new items on the rails. And its all for a very good cause. Proceeds go to our Day Care centre. Where they serve beautiful dinners every day as well as nursing care. They also provide Meals on Wheels, entertainment and a lot more. Please give them a ring at 02770926 for all their details.

Today a group of our Community Singers will join the counterparts from Castlemagner for a coach tour of the East of Ireland staying in Carlow for four days. We wish them a happy break.

Our Knitting Group meet every Tuesday night at the Adult Learning Centre from 7-9 . They displayed their work at the ECentre on Culture Day and it was widely admired and lauded by all who came to see.  New members welcome.

The onset of Autumn and the fine weather has brought a great increase in ther number of people engaged in walking.
