Regional Report 1238 – 7th October 2014



Eily Buckley

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to News Report 1238 from Millstreet. Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this bright Tuesday morning with plummeting temperatures. And a little ground fog.

It was a weekend of high spirits by any standards here in Millstreet. With the mighty Cork 20 International car Rally celebrating its centenary year, with all the thrills and spills of the high speed event. The town was beautifully decorated.

Roads were closed in many places, but nobody complained. The Green Glens was a mecca of cars, and teams to keep the racing cars going, while inside the building there was plenty to attract the children by way of free go-carting, simulators and lots more. Our pipe band was out to add their usual sparkle to the event ,and by the end of the weekend our tired but happy organising committee took a well-earned sigh of relief that all went so well. I want to congratulate them on a wonderful job well done.

Sean Radley was busy with his camera, so look up our website for the pictures.
