A Christmas Tour of Millstreet Town 2016

On Friday, 23rd Dec. 2016 we went on a brief tour of Millstreet Town so as to share glimpses of the countdown to Christmas.  We got to meet Niall O’Connor and Joe Fitzgerald at Supervalu and we met Sgt. Paul Lynch on dutyFr. Jim Kennelly was visiting his native Millstreet.  We share the many colourful scenes in Minor Row, The Square, Main Street, Church Street, The Bridge and West End.  We’ve lots more to share in an upcoming feature but we hope that you will now enjoy almost 90 images of Christmas 2016 in our native hometown.  We view the first six here and then continue with the main feature where you will be able to see them enlarged when you click on the various pictures.  Happy Viewing and a very Happy Christmas to All.  (S.R.)

Photo: Christmas Day 2002 on top of Mushera. This year’s Annual Christmas Morning Climb of Mushera takes place on Christmas Day Morning Sunday 25 December at 10.30 am.This year the proceeds go to Reach Out Cancer Support Group.

People from Aubane and other parts of Millstreet Parish on the morning of Christmas Day
Climb to the summit of Mushera Mountain quite a daunting task one has to say
For those who sponsor them for their favorite charity for this credit in heaps they are due
To climb Mushera in the depths of Winter to a cause one would have to be true

On Christmas morning no matter what the weather they scale the heights of Mushera hill
It may be frosty, raining or snowing or the gale force winds blowing a cold chill
The Mushera Christmas morning climbers some of them years ago were young
For their courage they are well worth admiring and their praises deserve to be sung

Lovely Katie of Lackabawn

You gentle muses I pray excuse me
You kind infusion come grant once more
To praise a maiden, sweet and engaging
She’s lovely Katie that I adore

If you’ll not aid me my heart will fail me
A sketch unpleasing I must have drawn
For oh I am eager my heart to please her
She’s lovely Venus of Lackabawn

One frosty morning when passing northwards
By Millstreet’s Border I chanced to meet
My darling Venus I mean Young Katie
And she coming early up from the street
