Regional Report 1113 – 1st May 2012


Eily Buckley

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to news report 1113 from Millstreet.

Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this the very first day of May and it is raining continuously.

Our Joanne acquitted herself well in New York during the week. Her gift of endearing herself to people wherever she goes, became very evident on the 6 o’clock news when her cheery disposition shone through.  At the same time she pressed ahead to make her plea before the United Nations Assembly, to make her world and that of people similar to herself  a better place.

Her week-long stay in the Big Apple was a whirlwind of exciting events, but it did not stop her from sending a good luck message home to the Cork Team in Croke Park on Sunday. And it proved a very moving gesture to all concerned. But it looks like her travels are only starting. Next stop Saudi Arabia. And continued Good Luck to her.

In spite of the bad forecast, the weather remained good for all our outdoor pursuits over the weekend. The Monster Mac on Saturday was an outstanding success. Last year there were 150 entries this year it was 300. Our beautiful country Park was a hive of activity, being the centre point of the entire event.

Monstermac success

This weekend saw the second MonsterMac adventure race in Millstreet Co. Cork. Unfortunately I was not a competitor but this time the shoe was on the other foot I was one of the organizers and it’s a totally different perspective. A long day was put in on the day before the race marking the run routes and the bike routes. Transition areas were put up and registration set and ready. Thankfully the rain stayed away but it was a frosty morning and the sun rarely appeared so the layers were needed for this race. This year we put on a shorter route the BabyMac to encourage first timers and we had 70 brave virgin adventurers.
