The special Christmas Event at the Men’s Shed setting in Macroom Road, Millstreet scheduled to take place this weekend (9th & 10th Dec. 2023) has now been deferred until 2024 on a date yet to be decided upon. We thank Liam Flynn for the update. (S.R.)
We thank Photographer supreme, John Tarrant for sharing a wonderful selection of images recalling the recent visit of Austrian Ambassador, Thomas Nader and Austrian Commercial Counsellor, Josef Treml to the splendid setting at Mount Leader Industrial Estate, Millstreet of the very well known Clover Hill Ingredients Centre (founded in 2003). Superbly guided on a special tour of the Centre by Managing Director, Dan Buckley the two Austrian VIPs met with the marvellously dedicated Staff and expressed their great admiration of the hugely impressive overall industrial operation and especially commented on the royal welcome and sincere kindness which they received on their special visit on Monday, 27th Nov. 2023 at noon before departing for further visits in Killarney. While I was unable to attend on the day I’m arranging to record a special Radio Interview with Dan as he will recall the special international visit and outline the 20 year history of Clover Hill Ingredients which we shall later broadcast on “Radio Treasures” on www.corkmusicstation.com at a time and date yet to be decided upon. Renewed thanks to John Tarrant for covering such an important international occasion here in Millstreet. Tap on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

Local woman Maureen Buckley will travel to Capetown in March 2024. This is Maureen’s second visit and the money donated will go a long way in the building of a rescue centre. She saw first hand the poverty and lack of resources and provisions when Maureen was there in 2022. The team included plumbers, carpenters, painters and many more. They filled their suitcases with all the necessary equipment to carry out the work and left everything there when they returned home. We have so much and they have so little so everything is a huge help. Please Support this very worthy charity.
