Greetings, dear Friends, from Millstreet as we share  Regional Report No. 1278 on Tuesday 11th August 2015.   Seán Radley reporting for Eily.

To hear this Report Live just tune into tonight (Tuesday, 11th August ) at 9.50.

And headlining this week’s Report – a special speedy recovery greeting to Eily, celebrating the memory of two highly significant historic heroes to Millstreet, the Lottery results, Leaving Cert results, Sarah’s brilliant television appearance, Retirement Party for Lena, upcoming events including a superb Vintage Day, very popular annual Carriganima Run and Walk, Helen and “Born2Transform Ireland”, Trevor and 70s & 80s event, Bernard at Gramophone Circle, the numerous Horse Show events, Millstreet Country Park Family Fun Day and more … much more.

To begin – we, of course, extend our heartfelt and sincere greetings to Eily Buckley (for whom I’m deputising for the next while) as she recovers from the operation she underwent in Cork  on Tuesday morning.   Gladly all went very well and Eily wishes to thank everyone for such a wonderful outpouring of support through their thoughts and prayers – it is greatly appreciated.   As we extend a very speedy recovery to you, Eily, we encourage you to relax and enjoy a richly deserved rest as you progress well to full and excellent health.
