Millstreet Macra are hosting their annual BBQ on Saturday the 17th August in Corkery’s Bar. It is the fourth annual summer event and promises to be bigger and better than before. O’ Leary’s butchers will be supplying the delicious barbeque and this will be accompanied by a cocktail bar and DJ Nev until late.
The event is our first time hosting something as part of the macra ‘Know your neighbour’ initiative and we would love everyone to come out and join in the fun! It is also a perfect opportunity to find out more about the club if you are interested in joining. For more information see our facebook page or contact Katie at 087 3684138.

A million congratulations to our neighbours in Boherbue on their highly successful Gathering Festival which they held over the weekend. Look up our website for all the photographs. And how wonderful to see one of our own, Fr, Jim Kenneally being their Grand Marshel. The organisers can take a well-earned bow on the good job well done.
Although not fully ready for the official opening of Millstreet Museum & Tourist Information Centre as further signage and wall units have as yet to be completed we shall be opening to the public from Wednesday. Our annual Church Gate Collection takes place this coming weekend – 10th and 11th August 2013 – in Millstreet. Restoration work has been very costly and this Annual Collection is our main source of funding. We very much appreciate the kind support of everyone. (S.R.)
