Wonderful Response to Radio Kerry’s Millstreet Feature

With some eight people providing a superb variety of interesting contributions giving an insight into the “Millstreet Experience” this morning on Radio Kerry’s “Saturday Supplement” with Frank and Siubhán Lewis and splendid music shared by four very talented Musicians plus the great singing of Jerry Doody – the response to the radio programme has been truly uplifting with many making contact with the many Contributors.   The Radio Show was very creatively edited.   When the Radio Kerry podcast will become available on Wednesday, 1st Nov. 2023, we shall provide the direct link to access.   Sincere thanks to the many Listeners who tuned in and to those who made contact.  (S.R.)

  1. Greetings to all in Millstreet from Gilleleje, Denmark. I wonder would Gerry Doody be related to Bertie Doody who lived with his father Gerry near the convent? I remember him well from my childhood in the 60s when Id be visiting on my holidays. Gerry was a great man for the salmon and Bertie was often visiting with my grandparents, Den and Molly Dennehy at The Hollow, Drishane Road. I used to fish in their pond all the time for the pike. Bertie was a true gentleman and very much liked by all my family. I had the pleasure of meeting his sister Joan several times as well.

    1. Allan…Absolutely correct…Bertie (another magnificent Singer) was Jerry’s uncle. Jerry certainly enhanced our Radio Kerry special Millstreet programme with his superb singing and wonderfully interesting chat. Delighted you enjoyed the special broadcast which is now available on Podcast …. We’ve included the link on http://www.millstreet.ie.

  2. Thank you very much Sean. Jerry did a great job on the Kerry special. You met my 2 sisters Joyce and Gillian at the museum a year or two ago. You recorded them. Im not very good at the traveling any more but I still dream of coming back to Millstreet one last time.
    Are you related to Kit Radley, the shop owner by any chance? I remember her well from the 60s.
    All the very best.

    1. Allan…Many thanks for your reply. I remember your grandfather – a True Gentleman – very well – Den Dennehy, Artist Supreme, who designed the original outdoor Corpus Christi altar which was in use for decades as the centre piece of the Annual Corpus Christi Procession in Millstreet. He also painted truly magnificent artworks as background scenes for lots of local Plays many of which took place at the West End Cinema, Millstreet. Kit Radley’s father and my grandfather (Jack Radley) were brothers. I certainly recall meeting with your two sisters, Joyce and Gillian, when they visited our Museum. Hopefully you will revisit Millstreet in time to come. Please let us know in advance of such a visit and we shall accord the Royal Tour! Very best wishes- Seán R.
