Eily’s Report – 28th May

Dia is Mhuire dióbh go léir a cairde and welcome to my Report.

My last report in the month of May. And looking back it wasn’t a bad one. We got a fair mix of sun and rain and now that we are into the last quarter they tell us it will be rain all the way to the end, so we wait with baited breath.  I bet we’ll get a few sunny spots too.

 This week sees yet another mighty International Equestrian event coming to Millstreet. The Bloodstock of the globe and their owners will thunder into town during the week and perform  at the Green Glens on Friday and Saturday and the following two days, eventing  over the lavish planes of Drishane.  The great thing is that admittance is free all the way so people of all ages, creed and colour will get an opportunity to view it . The first International Horse Show was held in 1979.  Millstreet was a very different place back then. A humble hamlet, trying to hold on to the few good shops and stores which were winding down from a few successful years. Our town was ripe for change, for improvement, for new thinking and on it came with the Duggan Family. When you live long enough you get to see a lot and you remember a lot.  You tend to appreciate the changes for the better that took place in the town that you love so well. Only driving into the car park in the West End gives me a lift. Because in my young days all that place was a wilderness. Big black iron gates and just inside, a black-clad little woman  still there from the days when the person in the gate lodge had to be on the alert to open the gates the minute the lord and lady or whoever needed to go through. Nobody only those who saw it then and sees it now can appreciate the wonderful changes and improvements that have come to reality since then. The wide open entrance, the spacious carpark, the Community Hall, The youth Centre, the public toilets, even the funeral home,  the creche, the majestic Carnegie Hall, all done up, our beautiful Town Park, I love them all, because I knew the place when they were not there. No public toilet in the town can you imagine and I can well remember the fight we had to get it installed. I am the last surviving founder member of the Community Council, which was formed in 1977 and  I’m proud to say that I’ve been there and worked for it all in whatever way I could, because I wanted better for my town. And we did get great work  done, needing endless fundraising and pleading with our public servants and Govern departments.  If they  were all listed it would make interesting reading I’m sure.

Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind Fundraising This Friday

On this Friday, 24th May 2024, Eileen Tarrant and her dedicated Team will be fundraising from 9am to 4pm outside Coleman’s Centra Supermarket, Minor Row, Millstreet in aid of the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind.  Eileen will be having many relevant items for sale and will be joined by two canine friends.  She especially welcomes anyone who would like to join her at any time during the 9 to 4 fundraising period for this wonderfully praiseworthy occasion. 

This was the occasion in August 2023 when the official cheque was presented following the uplifting fundraising efforts of the dedicated local group:

“With the Annual Open Day taking place today, Saturday, 26th August 2023 at the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind national headquarters on Model Farm Road, Cork T12 WT4A to which all are very welcome, a very special gathering of people from the Millstreet Parish area travelled there yesterday to present the very impressive cheque of €2,018.00 to the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind – the fruits of the fundraising some months ago which involved the production and selling of the excellent Music CD “A Millstreet Collection Volume Two” – comprising of thirty various Artists most of whom had direct Millstreet links.  This CD fundraising project was the inspiring work of Paddy Murphy, Tullig.   The second important fundraising event, wonderfully coordinated by Eileen Tarrant and her superbly dedicated Team involved a full day’s fundraising Collection outside Coleman’s Centra, Minor Row, Millstreet where a royal welcome was accorded by Mary and John Coleman during which the generous response from the public was quite remarkable.   Here we share an image of the presentation with further images to follow later.  Tap on the picture to enlarge.  (S.R.)

 

Chris Bennett, Regional Development Officer, Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind, (on extreme right) accepted the uplifting cheque from the wonderfully dedicated Team from Millstreet Parish. The gentleman with the green jacket at back is Dermot O’Donovan who provided us with a magnificent Tour of the overall Centre. Dermot from the Coachford area is one of a number of excellent Volunteer Helpers at the amazing Centre.

Eily’s Report – 21st May

Dia is Mhuire dióbh go léir a cairde and welcome to my Report.

There may be warnings of terrible thunder and thunder rains, but nothing can beat the early morning warm foggy world with the sun coming through. The dew on the grass and on the branches creating a wonderland of jewels all glistening in the slanting sun. A visiting cat re-enacting the wild desires of the beasts of the forest, crouching down ,even on the wet grass, in the hope of ambushing an unsuspecting little bird. Who was busy himself gathering stuff to make a nest. While other people  have to rush around catching up with their work-packed days, it’s nice for me and my likes, to have the time to follow the day at a speed reduced rate. I’m not sure if the idea of not cutting the lawn in May is such a good idea. It means that a lot of the new growths don’t come, leaving the birds without them. We all know only too well that when we cut the lawn, the first thing up in it’s wake is the dandolion. The favourite food of the small birds. But when they are not cut down the old stem stands withering there, with nothing to replace it. Nothing that is until the growth of mown again welcomes the next plants to spring up and sports its woolly head full of seeds to the sheer joy of our little feathered friends.

The 1982 Munster Regional Trout Angling Championships

The above is a video for the 1982 Munster Regional Trout Angling Championships.  It was my late father Jerry Sheehan of Liscahane who organised the staging of the event which was normally held on the river Suir.

There are many anglers in this video from Millstreet some of whom are long deceased  and were indeed some of the best anglers in the country back then.

The competition was won on the day by local man Pat O’Sullivan of Bolomore,  Rathcoole.

It certainly brings many memories back to me and I am quite sure that it would do likewise for family and friends of the people seen on the video.

Thank you to Jack Sheehan for submitting this to Millstreet.ie

Fondest greetings everyone and I hope you’re allenjoying the beautiful weather. There was a host of fixtures planned for the entire weekend, from Darkness into Light, First Holy Communions, Vintage Run, Dancing at the Wallis for our ARA and their friends from other Clubs,  to name but a few. Plus the lovely weather for others to make plans of their own.  During the previous week our farmers were busy gathering in the silage, following all the weeks and months of rain and others getting their turf cut, all making sure that the coming winter will  be good for both man  beast.  I trust that all who had a good and successful time will give thanks to the Good Lord for his wonderful gift of fine weather that made it all possible.

Eily’s Report – 7th May

Dia is Mhuire dióbh go léir a cairde and welcome to my Report.

The sun is making a fine appearance as the merry month of May rolls on.  Dramatic sun-downs light up the evening skies like never before. The recent setting sun threw up a variety of scenes as it skimmed over the highs and lows of the landscape. Scenes to be admired and captured on camera to be treasured again and again and shared with those who missed them. The system played a thick on me leading me to think that I was with the fairies. I took a fine image of Sundays evenings sun-down from inside my conservatory window my back to the tv. The picture came out great showing the full volume of the bright orange clouds high over Clara Mountain but to my dismay on checking my handiwork I got a shock to see the face of a weird looking man inside my wall looking straight at me. The  world of the supernatural, sprang to mind as I slammed my phone shut to give myself time to think, not always easy when you’re on your own. Then I steadied myself and opened it up again. Only to find that the mystery man’s face was a reflection from the television which was in the room behind me. Ahhh, the relief. Welcome and all as the sun may be please take good care to cover up well. The hot rays on the sun are really very burning as I found out first hand. So please wear good sun-block.

Eily’s Report – 30th April

Dia is Mhuire dióbh go léir a cairde and welcome to my Report.

It’s not often we get good news but to hear that our town is being given the princely sum of €117,000 for local improvements on a Monday morning, it is enough to brighten up anyone’s day. Well done to those who succeeded in netting this welcome shot in the arm for Millstreet and as time moves on we look forward to see the changes that it will make.

First Holy Communions are the order of the day at the moment . The children from Cloghoula National School received their Communion in Ballydaly Church last week and this Saturday  May 4th it’s the turn of the children of Cullen who will have their ceremony in their own local Church. Following that on May 11 May it’s the turn of the little girls of the  Presentation National School and the boys of Scoil Mhuire  in Millstreet. In the build-up to their special days the children and their parents took an active part in what is called ‘Grow in Love,’ at the 11.30 masses in recent times and we wish them God’s Blessing at this important time in their lives and pray that the blessings which they will receive through the Sacraments of Penance and the Blessed Eucharist will stand to them in whatever road life takes them  in their future years.
