Our busy week went very well with huge crowds attending the National Dairy Show at the Green Glens on Saturday.

And the sparkling Fancy Dress ball on Friday night lived up to its name and raised some welcome funds in aid of our Canon O Donovan Centre. Well done to the Wallis Arms Hotel and the Aubane Social Club who organised it.

Next event at the Green Glens is the Annual Pony Show which raises  lots of funds every year for various charities. It will be held this Friday Saturday & Sunday October  26,27,28th .

Entries are well up on former years and a great weekend of thrills and spills is guaranteed as little tots on tiny little ponies strive to be the best.

The grand finale on Sunday night usually goes on till very late. It comprises of the graduation ceremony where teenagers advance to higher grades.  A show not to be missed.

The Corkman Newspaper is out every Thursday in all the local newsagents, and contains much more than just the online version.

Connie Kelly And Morty Cronin

In my flights of fancy the memories come back
To me of when Connie Kelly the dog man ran the Millstreet dog track
And Morty Cronin the hare driver drove the lure around
May they rest in peace now in dead people’s ground.

The last men to run the Millstreet greyhound trial track to the reaper have gone
The well known and well loved characters Morty and Con
The Millstreet greyhound trial track is now a thing of the past
And only the memories of what was does last.
