‘A Millstreet Collection’ CD is now available to pre-order and costs €10.

Millstreet Primary School Parents Association is proud to announce the sale of a fabulous CD which is sure to make a lovely present for Millstreet and music fans for Christmas 2021.

The collection is the hard work of a local man, Paddy Murphy from Tullig, who undertook the project and oversaw the production. The featured songs all have a connection to Millstreet, either by their lyrics or through the artists involved. A delightful song by pupils from the Presentation National School also features.  The result is a varied collection of traditional Irish music, ballads, and toe-tapping tunes to name but a few. In total over 27 songs are featured.

Paddy has kindly offered all sale proceeds to benefit the two local Millstreet primary schools – Scoil Mhuire Boys National School and Presentation National School.

With support from the schools Parents Association a competition was run amongst the pupils of both schools to design the CD artwork. The winning entry, by Margaux Gilbourne 6th Class, features on the front cover and cleverly depicts local places and objects – such as Drishane Castle and Clara Mountain.

With an in-person launch not possible due to ongoing Government restrictions the CD is now available to pre-order and costs €10. It will also shortly be available for sale locally, with thanks owed to the local Millstreet shops for supporting its sale.

To pre-order simply email

or call/text 0879006734.

Herlihy’s Centra in the West End, and the Millstreet Primary Schools Parents Assn would like to thank the children from the Primary Schools for their Art work.  There is plenty of room for more Art, so its not too late to hand it in and it is definitely worth a visit as the pictures below don’t do the art justice.

Also the Parents Assn would like to remind everyone that the Go Fund Me page is still going and thank everyone who has given money so far.

Herlihy Centra – Art Exhibition

Herlihy’s Centra have been very impressed with the art work that has been displayed in town over the years and would love to exhibit the Primary Schools art, the exhibition ‘What we love’ will open very soon, so please start getting the pictures into Herlihy Centra in the West End ASAP.

Fundraiser Drive for Millstreet Primary Schools

Millstreet Primary Schools Parents Association, would like to ask people to help in this years fundraising for the Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S.

Usually, they have put on Quizzes, Disco’s and Church Gate Collections to help raise money, and after expenses of First Holy Communion and any gifts, the money left over would be divided between the schools.

So, the Parents Association decided to stay safe within the current regulations, and have set up a Go Fund Me page as their main Fundraiser for the year, and hopefully we will be able to have our usual events next year.

Link to the Go Fund Me Page:  Go Fund me Page

Another way to pay is directly into the Assn’s Bank account, details can be got by messaging the Assn directly on their Facebook Page Link for Facebook

Also, the Parents Assn would like to say a ‘Big Thank You’ to all the Children, Principals, Teachers, Parents, Grandparents, Past Pupils, Families, Local Businesses and Friends who have supported the Primary Schools Parents Assn in the past, and anything you can spare would be gratefully received.

In previous years, the money has gone towards STEM equipment, Sports Equipment, New Desks, Novels for the classroom, and a portion was put towards the important purchase of a defibrillator, also a portion went towards installation of hot water in classrooms.  Sadly, with Covid_19, the Parents Assn have been unable to collect any money for the Schools, or put on their usual events, but they have continued to give gifts for the First Holy Communion, and ran for Halloween a Colouring Competition, Fancy Dress Competition plus a safe online Movie Night.  Also, they had fantastic entries for a Pancake Bake Off Competition, and not forgetting the St Patrick’s Day Video (which is still available for viewing on their Facebook page), thank you to all the children who took part.  And another competition is on until Friday 2nd April (See their previous post).

Current Committee, Michaela Donegan (Chair), Sinead Corkery (Secretary), Claire Twomey (Treasurer), Denise Buckley, Tracy Cronin, Kate Kelleher, Caitriona McCarthy, Marie Bourke, Mary Irish-Daniels.  New members are always welcome.
