Eily Buckley

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to news Report 1277 from Millstreet.  I won’t depress you by talking about the weather. So I will start by thanking Sean Radley for stepping in for me last week.

I want to congratulate  my Grandaughter Georgina Stanley and her new husband Mark O Callaghan from Rosscarbury who were married on July 25th.

Many thanks to God for beautiful weather on the day, and to anyone who helped in any way to make their big day the great occasion that it was.

We informed the Gardai that many of our homes would be vacant overnight and thanks to them all was well when we returned.

We wish the happy couple many years of wedded bliss. DV.
