Happy Childhood Memories

Happy childhood memories the best memories of all
And my younger years in Millstreet I will always recall
On evenings in Summer up to the mid Fall
In the Townpark at the West End we played gaelic football
My friends of my youth where might they be today
Like me have the years left them balder and gray
Though some of them in the home Parish did stay
In life one might say we just went our own way
Since those days so many years have come and gone
And time does not wait it just ticks on and on
Many of the friends of my youth I may not see again
Though good memories of them with me does remain
And in fancy I chase the football up and down
With my happy young friends in the Park of the Town.

Successful Student Climate Change and Migration Seminar held in Green Glens Arena, Millstreet


Eight Transition Year students and their teachers from eight post-primary schools joined together to learn more about climate change and migration at a student seminar held at Green Glens Arena, Millstreet on 2nd February 2016. The students attending were from Coachford Community College, St. Mary’s Secondary School, Bishop McEgan College and De La Salle College, Macroom, Boherbue Comprehensive School, Millstreet Community School, Scoil Mhuire Kanturk and Scoil Phobail Sliabh Luachra. The event was coordinated by Sheila Dillon, Education Officer with Trócaire and John Magee, Chaplain in Millstreet Community School. Given that there has been so much in the news over the last year about climate change and migration, the aim of the day was to explore the issues from different perspectives. The four workshops were facilitated by Aisling McGrath from WorldWise Global Schools, Sarah Walsh from Eco UNESCO, Deirdre Walsh from Trócaire and Bernie Connolly from Cork Environmental Forum. Topics explored included the new UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), consumerism, climate change and its impact in Kenya, and sustainable agriculture. Two students from each school had a chance to attend two of the workshops, with the hope that they would bring what they had learned back to their colleagues in their various schools.

The students who were there on the day had a lot to say about why they attended the seminar, what they had found interesting and what strategies they felt their schools could adopt on top of what they do already to help counter the effects of climate change.
