On behalf of Millstreet Christmas Lights Committee we wish to thank everyone who made Millstreet look so magical this festive season.
Our sincere gratitude to our hardworking electricians Denny Lane, Seanie Kelleher, Paddy Roche, Humphrey Hickey and Martin Buckley. Also, our other volunteers Mikey Cullinane, Pat Lyons, Joseph Kapron, Ellen Kelleher, Jerry Pat O’Leary, John Twomey, Matt Murphy and anyone else who helped us in any way preparing for Christmas in Millstreet.
Thanks to Cork County Council especially Marie O’Leary, Pat O’Sullivan, Denis Kelleher and all their staff for their hard work and support.
A special thanks to Mary Hickie, to all those who supplied power to illuminate our beautiful town and to Dan and Rose Murphy for storing our lights. We also wish to thank Claramore Construction and John D Buckley Construction for their continued support. We appreciate all the local businesses and residents who made such an effort decorating their premises.
The official turning on of our Christmas lights by Steve Collins was a huge success. The atmosphere and turn out on the night exceeded all of our expectations. Massive gratitude to Hullaballoons Gifts for their generous donation of balloons on the night and Michelle Byrnes for helping us distribute them. Of course our main man Santa was the biggest hit of all. As always our MC Noel Buckley was on flying form that night along with our wonderful Millstreet Pipe Band. Thanks to our local Gardaí for policing the traffic on the night.
Of course, none of this would be possible without contributions from our local businesses and personal donations for which we are very grateful for.
Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous 2022.
