We thank Donal Kelleher for sharing images of the very impressive new Monument situated in the Church Car Park of Derrinagree Church remembering the Clonbanin Ambush of 1921 which on this Friday, 5th March 2021 is the exact Centenary of the historic event. Tap on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)
The Tricolour is flying from the Clonbanin Ambush monument and our new Clonbanin Centenary monument in Derrinagree church carpark to commemorate and honour the Irish Volunteers who took part in the Clonbanin Ambush on the 5th March 1921, one hundred years ago today

What does St Patrick’s Day mean to you? Millstreet Parents Assn has asked the Primary School children that very question.
To some of us it can mean going to St Patrick’s Church for mass, meeting friends and listening to the wonderful music. It maybe visiting family and going to the St Patrick’s Day Parade.
This year, sadly, we wont be able to do any Parades or go to Mass together, so instead of a Parade etc this year The Millstreet Parents Assn has invited the children from the Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S. to send in maybe a Photograph or Video of up to 20 seconds of who they want to wish Happy St Patrick’s day to (maybe someone out of the area or abroad they haven’t seen in a long time, or a relation they miss), perhaps play some music, or even have their own mini parade, even if they want to do a picture or Art, a poem, but the idea is for the children to say what St Patrick’s Day means to them.
The Parents Assn need all Photo’s/video’s and art pieces sent in by Friday 12th March 7pm and they will put them together for viewing in our own Primary Schools St Patrick’s virtual Parade on the 17th March. By sending it in, it is accepted consent has been given to show the clips/art on the Facebook page of The Millstreet Parents Assn and other social media platforms, this way any wishes you want sending to people will be able to seen.
But this will only work if the children take part, so let prove that St Patrick’s Day is still special to everyone.
