It was Noel Buckley and Deputy Áine Collins (pictured here with An Taoiseach and yours truly) who were so hugely instrumental in acquiring access to our newly restored setting in Carnegie Hall over some four years. Taoiseach Enda Kenny commended both for such dedication and he also recorded an uplifting message of great hope for the future of Millstreet Museum.   A special memory from some years ago in the Carnegie Hall.
A selfie to truly treasure! Taoiseach Enda was delighted to meet with four young Millstreet people who just happened to be close to the Carnegie Hall as the Taoiseach left before setting out on the long journey to Dublin….some years ago.
