Páirc Chatháin, Liscahane

This week, Cork County Council published planning documents on its new Social Housing Development at Liscahane for 26 homes. Thect site is located to the rear of an existing residential estate (Old Coach Avenue and Old Court Drive), off the Liscahane Road.

This is to be welcomed as homes are in very short supply in Millstreet, as is the case all over the country presently.

Below is the site layout, but full documents for the development are available on the Cork County Council website HERE.

Magical Snow Event 2018 at Mount Leader, Millstreet

While many of us are still snowbound (and trying to overcome a cold) thankfully a thaw is near.   Here with some 36 images we hope to share the magic of the past few days although undoubtedly days which created challenges for many.   Our base is Mount Leader where the kindness of neighbours delivering provisions and delicious soup is so hugely impressive.  Thankfully also electrical power has been maintained and the water supply continues to flow.  While my cat liked to roll in the snow she was delighted to be indoors in the warmth of my home.   And she has been great company during this amazing time.  Transmission of Church TV (although somewhat affected by weather conditions) is brilliant and a great advantage to the parish.  So let’s begin our “magical tour”.   Click on the images to enlarge especially the later selection in “read more”.   Enjoy!  (S.R.)
