Great Turnout for Millstreet Vintage Club Summer Car Run last Saturday Evening

After a 3 year Break due to Covid 19 Restrictions the Millstreet Vintage Club Summer Car Run made a welcome return back to the MVC Calendar last Saturday Evening, the Event which was again in Aid of Bumbleance Children’s Ambulance Service made its Comeback in fine style with over 90 Cars taking part, the starting point was the Cullen
Community Centre where the Bumbleance Ambulance was also on display, the Cars left Cullen just after 6pm and made there way on a Scenic Route up to Knocknagree, then on to the outskirts of Ballydesmond, Quarry Cross, Kilsarcon, and on to Castleisland before heading out the Abbeyfeale Road and then turning left and heading up into some spectacular views of the Countryside that brought the Cars down into the Finish at O`Riadas Bar and Restuarant near Ballymacelligott, the weather was favourable for the occasion which added to the atmosphere of the Event and this was followed by Refreshments and Musical Entertainment supplied by the Michelle Murphy Band, Danny Tobin and Heart to Heart at the Finish, again the Bumbleance Ambulance was on display at O’Riadas and a viewing of this very impressive Vehicle gives a person an idea of the great Work and Service this Voluntary Group carry out for seriously ill Children.

There was an open draw made before the start of the Run in Cullen for a Perpetual Trophy and this was won by Anthony Murray in his Toyota Starlet.

A Special Commemorative event in Donoughmore

On Saturday next March 19th at 11 a.m. a special commemorative event takes place in Donoughmore. The occasion is the 1400th anniversary of the death of St Lachtin the patron saint of the parish. A specially commissioned information sign will be unveiled by local  Cork County Counciller Michael Looney.  The location Donoughmore Cross (Eircode P32NX84), at the heart of the parish, is the site of an ancient church and graveyard. Originally an ancient monastery in the early Christian period, it was later a pre reformation church and ultimately a Church of Ireland place of worship. In the graveyard encircling the church memorials date from 1753. Many nameless markers indicate earlier internments.

St Lachtin became associated with the site and when he died in AD 622 his arm was encased in what is now known as St Lachtins reliquary. This relic is regarded universally by scholars as being one of Ireland most treasured antiquities and has pride of place in the Treasury Room of the National Museum in Dublin alongside such illustrious artefacts as the Ardagh Chalice and The Cross of Cong.

On the northern part of the site lies a communal grave for victims of The Great Famine when over a period of ten months, 1400 of the community died.

This unique occasion represents an opportunity for the community to gather together and to remember their ancestors and mark the site where the original parish was born.

The death has occurred of Ted Healy, Post Office, Clondrohid, Cork

Ted Healy, Clondrohid Post Office. On the 1st of March 2022, peacefully at his residence after a short illness. Predeceased by his wife Mary, brother Denis, sisters Mary, Judy and Abby. Sadly missed by his loving family Connie, Timmy, John, Kevin, Maria, Michael and Oliver, sister Kathleen, daughters in law, son in law, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, relatives, neighbours and friends.

May He Rest in Peace

Reposing in St. Abina’s Church, Clondrohid, on Wednesday from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Requiem Mass on Thursday at 2pm. Burial afterwards in Clondrohid Cemetery.

House private, please.

A message of sympathy may be left in the condolence on this link.
