Come join us on April 30th 2016 for the 6th annual MonsterMac adventure race. The MonsterMAC (Munster Adventure Challenge) is set in the picturesque Millstreet Country Park and brings together a mix of off road running and road biking.
The area offers some of the most unspoilt countryside at the base of MusheraMore in the Boggeragh mountains to make all 3 legs both challenging and rewarding.
Details, booking, etc. are on the new website monstermac2016.com, with updates on the MonsterMac Adventure Race page.
Congratulations to Geraldine Dennehy whose photo “War Horse” (above) of a cheeky horse at the Millstreet Horse Show was the runner up in the ‘Irish Examiner Readers’ Photography Competition.
Geraldine who is a very keen photographer was thrilled with her win: “I’ve always been interested in horses, I’ve worked with them for years, she says. “I was wandering around, taking photographs, and I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. I was lucky the camera was on auto focus and I had a fast lens because I only had seconds to take that photo. I’m thrilled to have been a finalist.”
She is pictured (right) with her daugter Sarah at the presentation in the Irish Examiner offices (picture thanks to the Irish Examiner).

Death Notice: Catherine Braun (née Shine), NH
Catherine (Shine) Braun, 94 years young, died unexpectedly at her home in Littleton, New Hampshire on January 30, 2016. Born April 17, 1921
in the village of Millstreet, County Cork, Ireland at Knocknagurrane, near Cullen. Mrs. Braun grew up in a typical Catholic family as the youngest of 7 brothers and sisters. She was raised in a cottage with a thatched and sod roof, heated only by a peat stove, and lacking indoor plumbing or electricity. In 1937 she travelled to London to train as a nurse. Catherine lived and worked in that city during the Blitzkrieg, tending to the injured and the ill.
During the 1950’s, Catherine immigrated to Boston to care for a sick relative. There she met the love of her life, Frederick J. Braun. They were married in May 1958 and had a son, Gary, the next year. After living for a short time in Connecticut and Vermont, she and Fred settled down and built a home in Littleton, where she resided for the remainder of her life. Catherine continued with nursing in New Hampshire. She frequently worked as a private nurse, caring for permanently disabled patients or those with terminal illnesses. She was devoted to her patients and worked well into her later years giving comfort to those who lived in pain and discomfort. [read more …] “Death Notice: Catherine Braun (née Shine), NH”
