Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to News Report 1056 from Millstreet


Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this  beautiful sunny calm Tuesday morning.


Full marks to Seanie Murphy and Matt Neville  who organised the highly successful St. Patricks Day Parade in Carriganima on Sunday, and well done to all the people from all walks of life who arrived with a wide variety of  artefacts to take part. From live-stock to motorised  bicycles, vintage, comic acts ,the list goes on .There was a fine crowd. They were blessed with beautiful weather and the pleasant music of the Threshing Mill Boys echoed off the surrounding hills. This is the sort of thing that we need to lift our people out of the doldrums.

So well done Seanie & Matt.
