Eily Buckley

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to News Report 1128 from Millstreet.

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

Well our annual Summer Show lived up to its great name again this year. From Wednesday to late on Sunday evening last, the sun shone in all its glory as thousands of horses from many countries were put through their paces in both indoor and outdoor arenas. As many as ten arenas going at any one time. Over 2,000 horses in all taking part. The many new features made the venue look awesome, a truly fitting place to show off to the competitors from America and Canada as well as many European Countries.

This weekend it will be the turn of the people of Aubane to celebrate the centenary of the School /Social Centre. They kick off of Friday night August 17th with a grand Dinner Dance at the Gleneagle Hotel. Tickets at €30 each can be had from John Kelleher or Martina Sheehan.
