Regional Report 1097 – 10th January 2012


Eily Buckley

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to news report 1097 from Millstreet.

Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this beautiful calm Tuesday morning.


Well the Loveliest Night of the Year lived up to its name again this year. The Women’s Christmas was celebrated in style by over 200 ladies of all ages at the wonderful Wallis Arms Hotel on Friday night last January6.  Every “Girl” in the family from Grannies to granddaughters were all dressed up in their finest bling  for the night that was in it.

It was great to see old friends meeting up and recalling their young days when life was simpler and the Celtic hadn’t yet come to spoil it all.

But there was no talk of bad times that night it was all fun and more fun. The beautiful meal, the rousing music of the Kelt, you couldn’t ask for more.

A collection box was passed round the Hall on the night, in aid of Cancer research and a massive €1,545.20 was raised.

Again many thanks to Mairead Daly who, in spite of her illness, saw to every detail of the great event. Thanks also to her helpers, especially Breda Cremin.

The Spirit Of Los Zarcos

The name of Los Zarcos given to them by Brian Sullivan of Millstreet Town’s Mal Paso Pub
Back in the very early eighties they were formed as a Football Club
Some of the players who played for Zarcos then the grandfathers of today
And some deceased and some from Millstreet living far away.

Some of their sons in the colours of Los Zarcos nowadays line out to play
They win some games and lose some games that’s life as some might say
In The Mal Paso Pub they drink to celebrate a win or ease the pain of a loss as their dads did in days gone by
On looking back the decades how time does seem to fly.

A Story Of Denny Penny Kelleher

The fields decked with wildflowers on that sunny Sunday
And the hawthorns were cloaked in their white blossoms of May
The countryside lush and green Nature in her Spring bloom
On either side of the by road between Kilnamartyra and Macroom

A huge crowd had assembled for the road bowling score
For to watch Denny Penny Kelleher of Millstreet from the road to Rathmore
In a winner take all bets take on Muskerry’s best
Both men in short shirt sleeves were prepared for the test
