“Ironman 70.3” at Youghal, Co. Cork last weekend was hugely challenging for its many Competitors. Two dedicated Participants sadly died while taking part – Brendan Wall and Ivan Chittenden. All those who took part in the event on extending their sincere sympathy to the Family and Friends of the two gentlemen were very much aware of what a blessing it was to safely complete the challenge. One of those very courageous and brave Participants was the wonderfully fit Tom Murphy of Millstreet. We thank Tom’s parents from Tullig, Millstreet for sharing the attached images of the occasion. Incidentally the “70.3” reference in the title name indicates that the full “Ironman” challenge on a world scale is, thanks to information from Hannelie, double this 70.3 distance at 140.6 miles.

Good afternoon. I’m looking for housing in Millstreet through the ARP program. I am 38 years old, my son is 14, my mother is 66 years old. I work at a Day Center. We are from Ukraine. My son goes to Millstreet Community School. I am ready to pay extra under the ARP program. My mom has asthma and she can’t deal with it at the Green Glens Arena. We are a decent family. We would be grateful for any feedback and help. My phone number is 085 202 4034 – Valentine.
