Walkability Study of Millstreet

The Millstreet Age Friendly group will be conducting a Walkability Study of Millstreet on Wednesday 30th Nov. Part of being ‘Age Friendly’ means promoting active ageing by making sure our towns are easy to get around and that it is easy to access the services and facilities they contain. During this walkability study we will be looking for things that support us to walk, or stop us from walking comfortably along the streets. We will be assessing

FOOTPATHS: availability, quality, ramped, width, obstacles in the way

CROSSINGS: convenience, safety

AESTETICS: signage, litter, bins, derelict buildings

PUBLIC SPACES: accessibility of services, availability of parking, green spaces, public toilets, benches, transport stops

SAFETY: car speeds, driver behaviour, cyclists, street lighting, general feeling of safety

This will be the first of 2/3 walkability studies as we will need to walk the same route at different times of the day. If anyone in the town has any feedback on any of the above areas that we will be assessing please get in touch by emailing <email> or phone 029 70926

Millstreet students going on Pilgrimage to Lourdes

Millstreet students going on Pilgrimage to Lourdes as helpers at Easter 2023

Following a gap of three years, the Irish Pilgrimage Trust are finally able to hold their pilgrimage to Lourdes at Easter 2023.  The other great news is that two 5th year students from Millstreet Community School will be going along as helpers with Group 126. They are Holly Dunne and Rachel Dineen.

The tradition of students from MCS going to Lourdes as helpers with the Irish Pilgrimage Trust goes back ten years or so, but the COVID pandemic brought things to a halt just a month before the 2020 trip was due to take place.

As was the case in the past, the aim is to cover accommodation and travel costs for the two students (€790/person) with all extra funds being passed onto Group 126 (who the girls will be travelling with).  Each group is meant to raise the funds to cover the costs of all the young people with special needs who travel with them to Lourdes.

The first fundraising event are two bake sales which will take place in the Millstreet Parish Centre on Saturday 17th December after the 6.15pm Mass and on Sunday 18th December after the 11.30am Mass.  Your support for these events would be gratefully appreciated.

BT Young Scientist Project

Hi, my name is Bláithín Dennehy and I am a student in Transition Year in Millstreet Community School.

Myself and Aoife Casey are doing project on “ Will turning off a light save a fight” and have qualified for BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition.

We aim to investigate whether conserving energy could be a potential cause of conflict within the household and between communities. We want to identify the conflicts between households and communities. Once identified, we will then aim to solve how to reduce this conflict and the impacts it may have.

Mallow Credit Union Winter Loans

Mallow Credit Union launch Winter Loan to CU through

It’s beginning to look at lot like…winter! As the nights draw in and we all gear up for the festive season Mallow Credit Union want to make sure people know that the credit union is there should they need a little help covering costs this winter.

Their new Winter Loan is designed with this in mind. Spread the costs of Christmas, bills, fuel, insurance or other winter expenses over 12 months and repay in a flexible, manageable way. Tomás O’Neill, CEO of Mallow Credit Union said, “In the current challenging times, many of us are preoccupied with financial concerns. With prices for fuel, utilities and groceries soaring since the beginning of 2022, households may be feeling under pressure. Some of the biggest price hikes in decades have put enormous strain on household budgets this winter. Our aim in Mallow Credit Union is to give people in North Cork & West Limerick a little breathing space, to spread out the costs of the coming months across the year.” The new Winter Loan is available to all new and existing members. The maximum term on the loan is 12 months and the maximum loan amount is €2,000. This can be your first loan with the credit union or you can apply for this if you currently have a loan. All decisions on loans with Mallow Credit Union are made locally and are based on your ability to repay.

Tomás added, “We would always invite our members to speak with us about their credit options first and not to turn to money lenders or other high interest credit options. We have a dedicated loans team in our branches that will talk you through the application. Alternatively, you can apply for the loan online through our Mallow Credit Union app, where you can submit all supplementary documents.”

It’s been a busy time for Mallow Credit Union, who launched their new Current Account & Debit Card in the summer, enabling them to do even more for their members. Keep an eye out for their  new MYCU Current Account competition to be in with a chance of winning a trip to New York courtesy of Mastercard! To learn more about the new current account and the winter loan visit www.mallowcu.ie or drop into your local branch in Mallow, Millstreet, Buttevant, Charleville and Dromcollogher.
