An Outstanding Academic Achievement in 2014

Brídelle Cronin 2014
Before the year draws to a close, Brídelle Cronin, Knocknakilla, Millstreet deserves heartfelt congratulations on her outstanding academic success during 2014 about which we recently learned. Brídelle scored 12 A’s in her Junior Certificate Examination 2014 – a truly magnificent achievement. Great credit is due to Brídelle and to her inspiringly dedicated Teachers at Millstreet Community School.   We also recall the many great successes which the School experienced during 2014….And who could forget the absolutely brilliant “Donna Mia” musical so beautifully presented by the wonderfully talented Transition Year Students of Millstreet Community School.  (S.R.)

Paddy Healy

1980s Paddy Healy in Helen & Dave Curtins Bar in the early 80sWith his wife Peg they raised their children at Claramore before moving to Murphy’s Terrace
The quiet man with few words to say
And sad to think that he is with the departed
With the dead of Millstreet he forever lay.

There was so much to like about in Paddy Healy
I knew him before he grew old and gray
He drunk many a pint of frothy dark porter
Without being aggressive or loud in any way.
