Jim Broxton of Cloghoula, Millstreet is a native of Corlough, Co. Cavan. Many people passing Cloghoula in recent weeks have been wondering where in the Millstreet area is Corlough when they see what they believe is an official road sign pointing in the Ballyvouskill/Adrivale direction. Well, it’s in fact a damaged sign from Co. Cavan which Jim was so delighted to receive in that it allowed him to bring an important memento of his native Co. Cavan to his Co. Cork home.   Jim indicated to us that he hopes to later place the correct exact distance in km between the two famous areas.   Multiplying the 2km by 100 would be the more likely distance! Click on the images to enlarge.

Clara News to call it a day after 36 great years
The Corkman – February 18 2013

THE Clara News is a magazine Millstreet people made time for more than 30 years. However, just one more issue remains on the formal announcement that it will cease publication.

After 36 great years serving the greater Millstreet area, editor Denis Reardon made the announcement on the February edition that its end is imminent.

During its existence, The Clara News has tied its communities in a remarkable time warp of changing development and modern technology.

The Clara News stood the test, once circulated, a community magazine topped the list. Something everyone saw and no matter how many opinions there were, the weekend of issue wouldn’t be completed without a read of the Clara News.

Over the years, “The Clara News showcased from the workings of community groups and the noted achievements of so many people yet those behind the magazine say its time to say goodbye.

“Some of us have come to the conclusion, that we can no lomger devote the time and the energy to produce The Clara News and we believe our time has come and its time to put away the keyboard, the pen and the stress.

“We’re fine about it, its nice to go while we still can. It was fun while it lasted but for me, after 35 years, its time to go. I’ve enjoyed it,” said editor Denis Reardon.

And from a magazine that found it way to all corners of the globe, Denis commended all associated with the magazine that over the years focused on the life and tmes of Millstreet, Ballydaly, Cullen, Kilcorney and Dromtariffe.

“I want to thank all the people who made the Clara News possible, those who supported it and they are many, too many to mention,” he said.

“Clara News” Milestone – February 2013

The most recent edition of  the ever-popular "Clara News" has just been published.  It is the first issue of its 36th year.  Very sadly, as so splendidly expressed by Editor, Denis Reardon, it is the second last issue of what has become such a truly treasured publication of so many Millstreet people at home and abroad for a complete generation and more.   We encourage you to buy your copy of "Clara News" - still only one euro - because this issue and the final issue are bound to become veritable collectors' items.   We especially thank Denis not only for having been such a captain supreme of this hugely important "Ship of Communication" for 35 years but also for his much appreciated recognition of the role of our Millstreet website.  (S.R.)
