Myself and Clíodhna O’Callaghan are running an event in the Mills Inn, Ballyvourney at 9pm on Friday 13th May known as Speed Irish!
This event is kindly sponsored by Ciste Spreagtha which aims to
encourage the use of Irish in the community after a few difficult years due to the pandemic and encourage community groups inside and outside the Gaeltacht to organise community events again.
The idea behind Speed Irish is like Speed Dating without the dating bit! Each person will have 3mins at a table with an Irish speaker and you will have a conversation AS GAEILGE! When the bell rings you will switch to the next table and get to know the next person and so on and so forth.
All levels of Irish are welcome and even if you have no Irish at all please come along as there will be flash cards of phrases and sayings you can use to engage in conversation.
We will be holding a raffle to raise money for the Linn Snamha Chúil Aodha with loads of fabulous spot prizes! Did I mention a FREE glass of PROSECCO!?
Aonis, scaip an scéal agus tar isteach chuig oíche a bheidh cinnte a mheabhrú!
Congratulations to Anna Moynihan from Cullen whom are part of the group whom are the champions of Siansa Gael Linn 2022.
Siansa is run entirely through the medium of Irish and is one of the country’s most prestigious competitions for young traditional Irish music and singing groups.

More details to follow in the near future.
The popular St Patrick’s Parade in Carriganima took place Friday at 3 pm and a festive atmosphere prevailed around the village. The Millstreet Pipe Band opened the proceedings while Pat Lane led the Parade as Grand Marshall. The festivities carried on until late with Peter Lane providing music in the Pub. All proceedings are in aid of the Air Ambulance based in Rathcoole. Once again Geraldine Dennehy captured the moments superbly, well done to everyone involved.
After two years of absence due to Covid19 the Millstreet St Patrick’s Parade returned bigger and better than ever. The Town wash awash in green and gold with a festive atmosphere about. Grand marshal for 2022 was Joanne O’Riordan whom returned to her native Milllstreet to bestow us with the honour. Our Pipe Band started the proceedings showcasing their new uniforms. The rain showers of earlier dried and everyone enjoyed a mild dry afternoon. Thank you to Geraldine Dennehy for stepping into the shoes of Seán Radley and I am sure did him proud. Seán is recovering well from his recent surgery and is looking forward to contributing to Millstreet.ie in the near future.
The wren,the wren,the king of all birds,
On St Stephen’s Day he was caught in the furze,
From bush to bush,from tree to tree at Drishane Castle he broke his knee,
Up with the kettle & down with the pot,
Give us our money & let us be off.
