Remembering Dave Badrick of West Yorkshire

We extend our sincere sympathy to Joanie (Hannah) Badrick (née Lehane) formerly of Minor Row, Millstreet on the sad departure of her beloved husband, Dave.   Heartfelt sympathy also to Joanie’s daughters and extended Family.  Joanie and Dave with their Family lived in the Isle of Man for many years and later at Todmorden in West Yorkshire, England.   Dave – always a True Gentleman – greatly endeared himself to so many in the Millstreet area and beyond when he and Joanie with their Family visited Millstreet on many occasions over the years.   We recall his wonderful wit, humour and superbly happy disposition.  It is clear that Dave enriched the lives of All.  God rest his gentle Soul.  Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.  (We thank Joanie’s brother – Jerry Lehane of Ballydaly – for sharing the news and photograph….S.R.)

Proceeds from the Tractor Run will assist Millstreet Day Care Centre which provides a diverse range of services and facilities for the betterment of the entire Millstreet community and catchment area. Preparatory work to initiate the project began in the early 1990s under a progressive council headed by Chairman, the late Dr. Michael Feeley and Secretary, the late Christy Fitzgerald.

Operated by the voluntary Millstreet District Housing Group in conjunction with the HSE, the successful project was the culmination of a great deal of detailed planning and hard work. The attention to detail was second to none and the building is now finished to the highest standards.

The centre was officially opened by the then President Mary Robinson in 1994 and over the years, it has provided meals, discussions, nursing and health services to social and recreational outlets much to the satisfaction and enjoyment of patrons.

Enthusiastically Supporting Darragh in the Final

On Wednesday, 15th Feb. 2023 at 4pm a Coach left Millstreet for Waterford in support of Darragh Cashman who is a member of the UL (University of Limerick) Team which had reached the Final against UCC in the prestigious 24th Sigerson Cup Match at the WIT Sports Campus.   Among the enthusiastic group who travelled to Waterford were Darragh’s parents and family.   Weather conditions were hugely challenging as witnessed in the TG4 Live Television coverage and as described in newspapers such as “The Irish Times” which mentioned the driving rain and howling wind and extra time where Darragh played a pivotal role as described: “A topsy-turvy encounter swung back in UCC’s favour as they regained the lead late on before Darragh Cashman’s 65th-minute equaliser for UL which forced extra-time, 0-15 to 1-12.  Cashman wore number 35 on his back and thwarted UCC’s number 35, Michael O’Gara, who suspected he may have won it for the Cork side a couple of minutes earlier.”  See full “Irish Times” Report HERE.

We thank Gillian O’Sullivan-Linehan for very kindly making available the following superb images which truly illustrate how the enthusiastic Supporters braved the challenging weather conditions to witness Darragh’s magnificent game.   Although UCC were victorious with a three point margin in the end, Darragh and his Team Members must take a huge bow for such a remarkable performance and for almost winning the Sigerson Cup.   Tap on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
