Eily’s Report 9th May

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly report from Millstreet.

The fine weather continues and already the silage season is upon us. When it gets into full swing there will be the usual upsurge in the volume of traffic on our already very busy roads. Please be vigilant at all times, watch out for temporary signs at farm gates and fields. And at bends in the roads.


There is a marked increase in the number of houses being bought up and being renovated, or new ones being built around the place. The  return of some of our young people from abroad is making a marked improvement in the life of our town and community. And long may it last.
