Millstreet “Darkness into Light” Walk Likely to Become Annual Event

Judging by the superbly uplifting response to the recent “Darkness into Light” 5K Walk which took place in Millstreet on Saturday, 8th May 2021 at 4.15 a.m. and was organised locally by the Munster Fire and Safety Team based in Main Street, Millstreet – it is felt that the Millstreet Walk for Pieta House will most likely become an annual event in conjunction with the many similar events which take place annually on a nationwide and international basis.   The 2021 Millstreet Walk began in Killarney Road and proceeded through the town to the Drishane Castle entrance gate and then returning to Main Street where Munster Fire and Safety provided much appreciated refreshments.  COVID-19 Safety precautions were observed.  Participants contributed generously to the praiseworthy fund. Here we share some 64 images from the inspiring event.   Tap on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)

While the “Darkness into Light” Walk  in Millstreet continued a further group climbed to the summit of Clara Mountain at the same time. Here we view Dawn Rising on Clara thanks to the recording of Joe Fitzgerald.

Road to Killarney to Close for two weeks

Kerry County Council have issued a notice to close the N72 National Secondary Road between Barraduff and Rathmore, from 8:00am on next Monday 17th May 2021 to 5:00pm Monday 31st May 2021 (two weeks).

The diversion to Killarney from Millstreet will be through Macroom, so what is normally 33kms from Millstreet to Killarney, now becomes ~63km each way. Traffic goin from Mallow to Killarney on the N72 will also be diverted through Millstreet, so expect increased traffic in town for the two weeks.

Eily’s Report – 11th May

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

It may be raining and windy outside, but the sun is shining in our hearts. To get the word Go after four months of semi-lockdown is surely a reason for us to be glad. We went to Mass in our beloved Church first thing on Monday morning, what better way to kick –start our new found freedom. There was a fine attendance and the joy of meeting our friends again having the friendly word and long-overdue greeting.  There was no shaking of hands, and no hugs, everybody wore a mask, but  there was nothing to dampen our spirits. I read somewhere that May 17th is all hugs day, barely a week away.  My goodness there will be a stampede. I wonder when will  be allowed the lovely custom of the friendly handshake. It will all take time because having refrained from it for so long and the fear of God hammered into us about the danger of it take a while for us to un train ourselves again and feel both safe and entitled to resume our friendly gestures. Little children will find it very different to touch rather than use the elbow to relate their loving greetings. I imagine they will make a big thing of it and share many a belly laugh in the process.
