Regional Report 1266 – 19th May 2015



Eily Buckley

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to News Report 1266 from Millstreet. Fondest greeting and I wish you all the very best of on this sunny morning following a very wet night.

There is a smile on every face in Millstreet again and on faces throughout the world really, and all because our beloved Seán Radley is back among us again. For some weeks now we’ve held our breath since it became apparent that he had serious problems with his heart. The word went ‘viral’ and people in all parts of the world prayed that he would get the right treatment and on time. And thanks be to God, the prayers worked.

Four well placed stents later and our beloved Seán is back in Millstreet, hale and hearty, where he is loved and cherished by all.

I must say a very sincere word of thanks, on behalf of us all, to our friend and fellow member of the LTV2 crew, Willie FitzGerald (Cullen) who remained Seánie’s driver  and carer during all his needs, be it in Limerick, Dublin, Killarney or Millstreet, etc. He was his right hand man all the way.

Buíochas le Dia a story with a happy ending, and we wish Seán many years of Good health.

Mary Nicholson of Main Street (née Buckley, of Carrigacooleen)

I am looking for information about my Great Grandmother, Mary Nicholson (Buckley). I understand that she was born in 1865/6, and prior to marrying John Nicholson in 1887/1888 lived in Carrigacooleen, Millstreet. They appear in the 1901 and 1911 Census at 9 Main Street.

Her son, and my Grand Father, Patrick Nicholson, appears in the 1901 Census as a ‘visitor’ in the home of Patrick and ‘Nanno’ (Nora) Buckley in Carrigacooleen. Their son, Denis Buckley, may have been a witness at the marriage of John Nicholson and Mary Buckley. In the 1911 Census( England) Patrick Nicholson appears as the nephew of John and Abina Buckley, in London. John Nicholson died, I understand in 1940.

I would very much appreciate any information regarding where he may be buried. I do not have any information with regards when Mary Buckley died, or where she is buried.

Kind Regards, Declan <email>
