Millstreet Library – Bealtaine Arts & Crafts Workshop

For Bealtaine, Millstreet Library hosted an Arts & Crafts workshop. The library buzzed with creativity and camaraderie.  The arts & crafts workshop was led by the talented artist Amanda Wright who focused on the intricate art of macrame.  The ladies who participated immersed themselves in the project, creating beautiful and unique creations. Under Amanda’s expert guidance, attendees not only learned the delicate techniques of this age-old craft but also enjoyed a fulfilling and joyous experience.  The workshop was a testament to the community spirit of Bealtaine, bringing people together to celebrate creativity and craftsmanship.

Strong Turnout for the Millstreet Vintage Club Vintage Tractor Run in aid of Millstreet Community Hospital

The first ever Vintage only Tractor Run ran by Millstreet Vintage Club got a great Turnout of 40 Pre 1994 Tractors with a great variety of models taking to the Road on a Scenic Route on Sunday last just after 1pm,the beneficiary of the Event was Millstreet Community Hospital and the Tractors did a drive through the Hospital Grounds at the beginning of the Route with the Hospital Residents sitting out to view the Tractors as they took on a 36km Route in favourable weather conditions.
The Vintage only concept was met with very favourable feedback from everyone who took part in the event and it’s hoped that this type of event can be built up and improved on for the future going forward.
Event Organiser Dan Barry would like to thank the Canon O’Donovan Centre Millstreet for providing the sign on venue and parking along with looking after everyone with Refreshments before they took to the Road and also wishes to thank all the Sign On Crew and the Marshals for keeping the Event running smoothly, also Dan would like to thank the Media and Photographers for there promotion of the Event and finally the John Barry Perpetual Trophy Winner was Tom Linehan in his Ford 4000.

We Thank Daniel Lane for the Photos.
