Eily’s Report – 3rd October

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a cáirde and welcome to my Report.

The recent development at the Boeing was further enhanced at the weekend when a special plaque and seat were added in memory of the popular late Eileen O’Riordan, Dromsicane beloved wife of Francie, whose first anniversary occurred recently. Eileen was not a native of Millstreet, but she endeared herself to many during her all too short time here.  Following the 11.30 Mass at which she was remembered and prayed for her family and friends made their way to the historic crossing of the Blackwater known at the Boeing. In advance of the day, her friends and neighbours had constructed and Rest Area overlooking the gentle and often raging waters of the Blackwater River.  The memorial plaque reads ,”Sit for a while and remember her smile, Gone but not forgotten.” Eileen O’Riordan and there it remains for us all to use and enjoy. The perfect place where you can go alone or in company. I went there one day when it was still in the development stage and sat on the only seat that was there at the time. Listening to the gentle flow of the water admiring the overhanging branches dipping their toes and dancing to it’s movement a place of tranquillity and peace. Gives the mind an opportunity to slip away from the affairs of modern life. I am yet to see the new development, but I can see it as a place where  people like myself and my equals can go  there for picnics singing sessions or of course to  pray.  But not just for the likes of me but for everyone to savour in their own way.

Eily’s Report – 26th September

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a cáirde and welcome to my Report.

You always appreciate the good day better if it comes after a bad day. That goes for lots of things in life and indeed it also goes with the weather. This lovely warm sunny Monday is so welcome following the wet, dreary, weekend. We didn’t expect this gift of sunshine and when it came you want to do a million things that you have lined up in anticipation of it. I didn’t think I’d spend so long working in my garden today but as we all know that  if you have a few minutes  work  to do out of doors it usually takes much longer than you planned.  You don’t count the cost if you can get the thing finished. I’m very pleased with myself, having ventured off out into my patch to  catch up with some things that have driven be almost to despair for weeks. Looking out at them in the rain.  By now I’m sure you appreciate the love that I have for my beloved Phormiums. Above everything else in the garden they give the best service. Stormy wet days are no bother to them, as they’re lashed this way and that. Their ribbon-like foliage effortlessly twisting and turning and flapping. The punishment of the elements doesn’t even show when the calm returns again, while others fall flat and damaged. Needless to say they do need a little TLC. now and then and today was my opportunity to let them know how much  I care. Pampas grass and Phormiums are related I’d say and have to be treated in a different way to other garden dwellers. Some of my friends wait for the dry spell to set fire to them, the flames reaching down to burn away all the dry matter ,to make room for the new growth and it works very well for them. But in my situation, a blazing inferno on the edge of a very busy road would not be very practical to put it mildly, further to that where do you go for a dry spell. Anyway I made no delay in attacking the task by hand in the brilliant sunshine and pulled away all the dead matter to give the new growth every chance of  surviving. I‘m very proud of the finished article. To see my plants all cleaned up and the  roots devoid of the mucky debris. They can breathe now again and are open to the lovely sunny day. Buíochas le Dia.

Most recent drone footage of the N22 Ballyvourney and Macroom bypass. Flying west to east during mid September 2023, this clip is focused on the area just over Mullach an Ois and flys from the western tie in at Sliabh Riabhach, bypassing Ballyvourney village and eastward to meet the recently opened section at the Tonn Láin junction immediately east of Ballyvourney village.
Road signage, sound barriers along with road surfaces suggest the near completed state of construction as they aim on next month opening.
This 6-7km section of the new road includes
The big cut at Sliabh Riabhach, over 30m deep and nearly 1km long;
The largest structure along the entire new road, the 120m bridge over both Abha na Biochaille and the mountain road to Millstreet;
2 pedestrian underpasses including the Beara/Brefni way
2 over bridges and multiple underpasses

Tomorrow is the 50th Anniversary of the 1973 Football Final which Cork won and Millstreet had 4 players on the team

50 YEARS AGO TODAY

 

A day that will never be forgotten all of 50 years ago is recalled from the 23rd September  in 1973 when Cork bridged a 28 year gap to win the All Ireland Senior Football Championship when overcoming Galway 3-17 to 2-13 in Croke Park

A proud day for Millstreet GAA Club with four players on the starting team through the involvement of Denny Long, John Coleman and the late Connie Hartnett and Humphrey Kelleher. During that season’s Championship campaign, the late Tommy Kelleher was a substitute in the Munster Final while Fr. Jim Kennelly was selected as a substitute on two occasions.

The scenes at the final whistle, the journey home to Leeside, the reception in Millstreet to greet a remarkable team will always remain as fond memories. Approximately 5,000 people thronged Millstreet on the following Wednesday night, when the Cork team were guests of Millstreet GAA.

The occasion sparked massive celebrations, red and white flags along with buntings decorated the streets. After a meal in the Wallis Arms Hotel, the team boarded a truck at Church Street for the parade fronted by Millstreet and Newmarket Pipe Bands.

Members of the club’s Under 12 and Under 14 teams formed a guard of honour and a party with blazing torches flanked the truck. Speeches were made in the Town Square and festivities continued into the small hours.

To mark the 50th anniversary, the surviving members of the panel and family representatives of the deceased members have attended functions in both Pairc Ui Chaoimh and Croke Park over recent months.

We wish continued good health to all the team members and remember those who are no longer with us.

Thanks for the memories that will always be savoured by all involved in Millstreet GAA.
