Update on Celtic and Clara Toy Dolls

When speaking with Tommy Burke at Supervalu today I discovered that the Toy Factory at Pound Hill (Hegarty Street) was known as Celtic Toys 1965 – 1977.   When Tommy and his dedicated Staff took over it became known as Clara Toys (& Clothing Co.) 1978 – 2004.   We had lots of interest in our recent Bob Emprimo Doll feature.   Many thanks to Tommy for such an interesting update.    (S.R.)

Wonderfully Positive Reaction to the Return of LTV1 Macroom and LTV2 Millstreet – Repeat Programmes on Sunday Evening

It’s uplifting to note the very positive reaction to the return of Local Television.   We especially thank Bernard Crowley for dedicatedly having Programme 1 of LTV2 Millstreet available online (for a worldwide audience) as soon as the actual live television transmission in the overall Muskerry and Duhallow areas.   Many thanks to Seán Murphy for editing this week’s very interesting programme.   The religious broadcast on Sunday evening at 5.30 recalls a recent Mass in Ballyvourney.   We hope that you will join us weekly as we share the news, events, interviews and the culture of our local areas.   Thanks to Journalist, John Tarrant and to Eily Buckley for projecting LTV updates in the media – newspapers and local radio.  (S.R.)
