We chat about the recent Cinema release of this Documentary which apparently includes a very brief clip from our 1993 Documentary “Memories of Millstreet”. I’ve yet to see “One Night in Millstreet” but Martha Cronin who recently attended its showing at the Los Angeles Film Festival shared this image below from the film!

Eily’s Report – 9th April

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

I hope you are all well and safe following the ravishes of storm ‘Kathleen’ which put us all to the test over the weekend. Thank God, very little damage has been reported locally, perhaps we are getting better at reacting to the warnings and battening down our hatches in good time.  Or maybe by now that everything that was loose has already been blown away. Ironically we had no less than two weddings in the Parish on Saturday. It must  have been any bride’s worst nightmare. First of all the days leading up to Saturday, heavy sleety showers were driven by hurricane winds, not the sort you’d need if you were putting the final touches to your big day. There was no let-up. The adverse conditions still raged on Saturday morning, causing power cuts at homes and even at the hairdressers. Which forced some to seek help from neighbours whose power supply survived.  God was good, there was a little respite at mid-day when the sun shone out to give all the wedding parties the opportunity to make it to the church and then the rain and storm returned. What a story those couples will have to tell their grandchildren in years to come.   We wish them God’s Blessing and many years of wedded bliss in the years ahead.
