What does St Patrick’s Day mean to you?

What does St Patrick’s Day mean to you?  Millstreet Parents Assn has asked the Primary School children that very question.

To some of us it can mean going to St Patrick’s Church for mass, meeting friends and listening to the wonderful music.  It maybe visiting family and going to the St Patrick’s Day Parade.

This year, sadly, we wont be able to do any Parades or go to Mass together, so instead of a Parade etc this year The Millstreet Parents Assn has invited the children from the Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S. to send in maybe a Photograph or Video of up to 20 seconds of who they want to wish Happy St Patrick’s day to (maybe someone out of the area or abroad they haven’t seen in a long time, or a relation they miss), perhaps play some music, or even have their own mini parade, even if they want to do a picture or Art, a poem, but the idea is for the children to say what St Patrick’s Day means to them.

The Parents Assn need all Photo’s/video’s and art pieces sent in by Friday 12th March 7pm and they will put them together for viewing in our own Primary Schools St Patrick’s virtual Parade on the 17th March.  By sending it in, it is accepted consent has been given to show the clips/art on the Facebook page of The Millstreet Parents Assn and other social media platforms, this way any wishes you want sending to people will be able to seen.

But this will only work if the children take part, so let prove that St Patrick’s Day is still special to everyone.


The Bóing from above

Gorgeous drone video footage of the Blackwater River at the Bóing near Millstreet, in July 2018. That July will be remembered as the year of the heat wave and drought, thus the fields aren’t as green as they might normally look, and the water level is quite low. The bridge was built in 2015 as part of the Beara Breifne Way, Ireland’s longest way-marked trail.

Cork Young Filmmakers

Cork Young Filmmakers coordinate a countywide film-making programme for young people in Cork. We have some received funding for four one-day film-making workshops from Cork County Council which are to be used in partnership with Youth Clubs or groups, young people age 14-19. If you are part of such a group in Millstreet or any neighbouring North Cork towns that might be interested in this, please contact Mary at 0868139019 or <>

0025-Maureen-OHara-20110092-Maureen-OHara-20111-150x150The interview we recorded in 2011 features on LTV2 Programme 211.  Hugely popular Film Star, the Legendary Maureen O’Hara holds a framed picture of Turbrid Holy Well with which she was presented by Seán Radley, Ita & William Fitzgerald following a fascinating brief interview with LTV2 at Glengarriff Golf Club on Sunday night, 26th June 2011.  We referred very especially to Maureen’s starring role in “The Quiet Man” with John Wayne in 1951. We believe that Maureen once visited a pharmacy in Millstreet as she was en route most likely to Killarney.

We extend our sincere sympathy to the Family of the late great Maureen O’Hara who has gone to her Eternal Reward at the age of 95.  She died peacefully in the presence of her Family in America and it’s reported that the music of “The Quiet Man” played gently in the background.  Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam uasal. Here we recall our meeting with the wonderfully friendly Maureen in 2011.
