Eily’s Weekly Update – November 17th


Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to the News from Millstreet.

Last week a young man of 23 from New York completed the O Sullivan Beara Way from Beara to Brefni in 29 days. The weather was far from being kind to him, but all through his childhood he listened to his Dad who was of Irish decent, telling about this great Irish  Chieftan who made the journey in 1604 and he was determined to do it too. And well done to him.

Talking of journeys, there is a new book at Wordsworth book shop in Millstreet, entited “Walking the Munster Blackwater”. It’s written by a Jim O Malley who did just that in 2010. Over 200 pages long, it gives an indepth account of  his trek, warts and all. I liked the way he highlighted the history of places that he walked through and the people he met.  At €20 it makes a lovely read and an ideal gift at Christmas.

The AGM of our Community Council will be held at the Wallis Arms Hotel tonight November 17th.   All are welcome.

Tonight also there is a cookery demonstration at our GAA hall given by TV3’s Chef Adrian. Doors open at7.30. Admission €10 all proceeds to MillstreetHospital. Please support it well.
