Our 10pm feature tonight on “Radio Treasures” on Cork Music Station (Tues. 11th Sept. 2018) recalls Michael Linehan’s 70th Birthday which took place in Scartaglin on last Saturday night. We also hear the superb pipe music as played by Con Houlihan of Cullen Pipe Band as he piped Michael into the three Bars in Scartaglin – O’Connor’s, Lyons’s and Fleming’s. We reflect on the very successful Autumn Vintage Car Run of last Sunday. We chat about our 1940s historic photos of Millstreet Boys’ Secondary School. And we travel to Gneeves Wind Farm in the company of Patrick W. O’Leary, Kentucky, USA and Brendan Murphy, Millstreet.
We’ve lots of musings and music plus songs from artists like André Rieu, Nat King Cole, Judy Garland, Ann Shelton, The Seekers, Les Paul & Mary Ford plus Hymns from Medjugorje. And there’s more…lots more! Do join us from 9:30 to 11:00pm (Irish Time). Feel very welcome to contact our live broadcast by emailing us on <firstname.lastname@example.org>, by texting 086 825 0074 or by joining our chatline on the Seán Radley Facebook Page.
Many have enquired if we have podcasts of our weekly 10pm features so that they could listen to them if the live broadcast was missed. As yet we do not have such an audio archive but we are hoping to develop this facility in the not-too-distant future as very kind support for this has become available about which we shall give more details later. For now happy listening to our live broadcast this evening! Below we share images from the topics included in our programme. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)
The Irish Independent notes today that in 2016, Millstreet had the second highest reliance on the manufacturing industry as an employer in the country:
“… some towns are heavily reliant on just one industry. For example, in seven towns, more than 25pc of the workforce were employed in manufacturing in April 2016 – they include Ballyhaunis, in Co Mayo, where 41.88pc of workers are in the sector, followed by Millstreet, in Co Cork, at 33.92pc…” 
From a community perspective, you’d prefer a broader spread of the workforce across industries, because in our case we may be too exposed to a shock to the manufacturing sector. At the same time we’re glad to have Alps, Munster Joinery, and the other smaller manufacturers in the area for the jobs they bring.
Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my report.

The Final Dance of the Summer finished up last Sunday Evening at Mushera Platform with a great Crowd in attendance as they danced the Evening away to the Sound of Peter Lane in perfect weather conditions.

A huge tank you to each and everyone who supported the dancing all the year and many thanks also to all the bands who gave us such great entertainment to keep this tradition alive.
