Eily’s Report – 19th March

Dia is mhuire díobh go léir a cáirde and welcome to my Report.

St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone and for us here in Millstreet, it was nothing short of a Showstopper. From early morning the sun shone out and kept the glow on all the events of the day. Our wonderful Pipe band played us into 11.30 Mass and as they paraded in tune all the way to the alter, you got that spine-chilling feeling of pride, even emotion. Founder member Tim O’Shea was there for photographs while stalwarts like the spritely Michael McCarthy and Brenden O’Sullivan led the group. It’s at moments like this that you weigh up the important part that things like your own pipe band play in a community and how important it is that we value them to the full. We had no less than three priests on the alter for Mass. Fr. Billy Radley, Fr. O’Shea (Kilcorney) and Fr. Sean Tucker.  They were joined by Canon John at Holy Communion time.  The band played the full church out after mass ended before rushing off the take part in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Killarney and were back again to take part in ours at 5.
