Final Update of Fundraising for Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Website

As we conclude our fundraising for Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Website we are presently compiling a record in the Museum of the many very generous Individuals, Businesses and Local Organisations such as Millstreet Town Park Committee, Millstreet Community Council, Millstreet Vintage Club, Millstreet GAA and Millstreet Community Singers to mention but some – all of whom have been so enormously generous, supportive and encouraging.   Below we share the final update which we have just published on the GoFundMe platform.   While we have already individually thanked many of our very generous Donors we have yet to write to many acknowledging their contributions and extending thanks.

“Dear Wonderfully Supportive Friends we’ve reached our Final Update of our phenomenally successful GoFundMe Campaign in aid of Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Community Website. Our Grand Total of €6,534.84 (after fees) in the GoFundMe Project is absolutely magnificent and very much beyond our expectations. We wish to extend our most sincere thanks to the many people who have so very kindly supported this Project and who have been so hugely encouraging not only with their greatly appreciated Donations but also by their superbly uplifting comments. We also wish to thank the GoFundMe Team especially Ida for their professional guidance and assistance. This tremendous response to our Project will cover our ongoing costs and will also allow for important developments at the Museum and on the Website that up to now could not have become a reality. In addition to our GoFundMe total we have also received separate Donations from very generous Local Organisations, Businesses and Individuals reaching €2,908.00. When added to our GoFundMe total – the overall Grand Total is a hugely impressive €9,442.84. To everyone who has been so very generous, supportive and encouraging on this wonderful GoFundMe platform – heartfelt sincere thanks. As we say in Irish “Míle, míle buíochas” – a thousand, thousand thanks. As we shall shortly be deleting this GoFundMe Project we extend very best wishes to everyone. Your amazing generosity and tremendous support is greatly appreciated. Sincerely – Seán  Radley, Curator, Millstreet Museum and Member of Millstreet Website.”

Millstreet Museum is open Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday from 9.30am to 2.30pm. Also open on Thursday from 9.30am to 2.00pm.

Tubrid Holy Well Feature on “Irish Catholic” This Week

Photographer supreme, Valerie O’Sullivan recently visited Tubrid Holy Well where she captured a wonderful selection of images one of which features on the front page of this week’s “Irish Catholic” national newspaper (20th Aug. 2020).  Also included is a photographic feature within the popular weekly newspaper.   Valerie’s images oftentimes appear on booklets, calendars etc. within the Diocese of Kerry and far beyond….as well as on national and international newspapers.   It was Valerie who took the world famous picture of the laughing Queen Elizabeth with Pat O’Connell at Cork’s English Market.   Pat Breen who coordinates the distribution of the Catholic Papers here in Millstreet Parish indicates that extra copies of the “Irish Catholic” will soon be available in St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet.  For just €2.00 we encourage you to obtain your own copy with its local relevance this week.   Many thanks to Fr. Paddy, to Mary and to Pat for alerting us to the special Tubrid feature.  Tap on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
