Millstreet Town Park is committed to increasing biodiversity in our area. We are currently not mowing certain areas of the Town Park to allow wildflowers to grow and to encourage the return of butterflies and bees. This pilot project will be reviewed in the near future, to determine if these wildflower areas should be reduced or further developed. We thank Denis Hickey of Millstreet Town Park Committee for this notice. (S.R.)
We thank Shane Browne of Tanyard Wood, Millstreet and Jimmy Murphy of Carriganima for sharing some quite amazing images which truly demonstrate the Superb Wonders of Nature. Shane captured some magnificent shots of the somewhat unusual sunset over Millstreet on Thursday, 1st April 2021 while Jimmy shares his splendid image of the recent Lunar Halo as well as a “V” shape formation of wild geese in flight over Carriganima making their way in the direction of Millstreet.

In March 2019 Daniel and Majella O’Donnell visited the very welcoming home of Eily Buckley. In March 2021 (Sat. 6th) it was this beautiful rare bird that paid a visit to Eily’s Garden! Clearly seeking Select Accommodation! Tap on the image to enlarge. (S.R.) Update: Lots of suggestions coming in – including one from Caroline Lehane who suggests that the bird could well be a Peregrine Falcon….Another suggestion received – a Sparrow Hawk.
Photographer supreme, Geraldine Dennehy has just shared this splendid image with the following caption: “A Lone Rose ! Spotted this rose this morning while out walking. It survived ‘Ellen’ and all that she threw at it during the week !”

“With so many negative stories circulating during this Covid-19 pandemic, it is so important to balance some of these out with positive moments too. There is no better place to gather these positive and uplifting moments than from my garden which bursts with life and colour at the moment. Music is used with permission from Photodex 2020 (Pro Show Gold) and the piece used in this video clip is Romantic Guitar and Piano.psa More photographs can be seen on my webpage www.2u.ie” says Fr. James.

At least two very colourful Rainbows appeared over Millstreet on this Tuesday, 15th January 2020 – the Feast of St. Ita. Celebrated in Killeedy, Co. Limerick where a beautiful Church Window (in Ashford in the Parish of Killeedy) depicting the renowned Saint may be seen – there is also a close link with St. Ita in Millstreet and is especially associated with Kilmeedy and Tubrid….which is oftentimes referred to as the Holy Well of Ita where in a bygone age people were baptised in the waters of Tubrid. The two Rainbows serve as a reminder of St. Ita’s links to Millstreet. Our images were photographed in West End and Mount Leader this Tuesday morning. Tap on the pictures to enlarge.(S.R.)

We were fortunate to record a truly magnificent Rainbow over Millstreet Town Park at 5.30 this evening (Sunday, 15th April 2018). It looked like the end of the rainbow … with its pot of gold … appeared to be over the Pitch-and-Putt Course! Even the walkers in the Park at the time never felt closer to a rainbow. But when you come to think about it – the recent wonderfully upgraded Pitch-and-Putt Course must be gold to its many Loyal Players. Here we share four images of this evening’s “rainbow magic”.

The art of nature … at first glance the ice looks like doves beside the river, and then you wonder how did that form?
Natures art comes at a price though. The freeze is still with us but it is not as cold as it has been in previous nights. Rain/sleet fell early yesterday morning and froze solid, covering everything in half an inch of solid ice. Everything ground to a halt and early morning commuters were left with treacherous road conditions with many of them turning around and staying at home for the day. While in town all day, walkers were better off walking on the roads because the footpaths had not been salted and were just plain dangerous.
