Storyteller Supreme Jack Healy at Library This Morning

Storyteller Supreme (first from left) Jack Healy provided a most entertaining hour of storytelling at Millstreet Library this morning for a wonderfully appreciative audience. Librarian Grace wished to apologise to anyone who may have thought that the event was to be on Wednesday as Grace just happened to indicate Wednesday on the Parish Newsletter although the date (15th May) was correctly mentioned.

Eily’s Report – 15th May

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a Chairde and welcome to my weekly report.

On this historic day, the twenty fifth anniversary of Eurovision Millstreet, our website is full of pictures, reminding us of the heady days that put us on the world map, and twenty five years on we are still well remembered for it. Thanks to Noel C Duggan, his family, and indeed to our wonderful community.

There is a fine article about  Eurovision Millstreet on the May 18th  (last week) issue of Ireland’s Own written by Edward Tucker [read it here].

And this morning I can answer the question that you have all been asking, yes, the Daniel O Donnell and Majella Road Show which was anchored in my own humble B&B  on St. Patrick’s Day, will be screened next Tuesday night May 22nd at 8.30 on RTE1.  I only got the final confirmation of the date yesterday.
