Eily’s Report – 25th January

 

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my weekly Report.

We have some wonderful causes for celebrations here this week, as we rise from the ashes of Corona virus, the principle one being the 100th birthday of the lovely Gobnait Twomey, Murphy’s Tce. Still as bright as a button and straight at a needle, her wonderful  family and friends left no stone unturned to make  sure her gala celebrations well worth waiting a hundred years for. Not far behind were Denis Corkery and Noel Collins who were 80. Popular Postie Jerh Keating who turned 50. We wish them many more years of happiness and good health.

Eily’s Report – 18th January

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my weekly Report.

They say the world is always changing and how so true that is. Only last week our minds and hearts were full the story of  Charlie Bird and all the goodness that he portrayed in the face of his own death. His name was in everybody’s lips, but alas, following the dreadful events of this week you’d almost be forgiven for asking “who is Charlie?”No where in any part of the world have the proper words been found to describe the awful murder of the lovely Ashling Murphy. Never before have we seen such a reaction to the fatal attack on a lovely little girl who went for a walk after work. Our friends in Australia tell us of candle light vigils and other forms of support that are being held there in her honour. All over our own country cities, towns and villages are pulling out all the stops. Our own Town Park was a blaze of light and music on Friday night and in the village of Carriganima also. At times like these people are in shock and they want to do something.  It’s at times like this that they feel the need to be close to each other. People who never met before cling to one another, stand close for support, often saying nothing at all but just being there.

New Year donations to Cork’s Saint Vincent de Paul

 Millstreet branch supervisor Bridget Fitzgerald with Eileen O Sullivan.

An estimated 50,000+ homes will contact the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SVP) this winter. The board of Management at Mallow Credit Union felt that the annual donation to the SVP was more important than ever for the year ahead and wanted to show their support to the tireless efforts of the SVP. It was agreed to support the SVP groups within Mallow Credit Union’s Common Bond, with a total of €5,000 being donated across North Cork & West Limerick, €1,000 of that going to the Millstreet branch of SVP.

Tomas O Neill, CEO of Mallow Credit Union said “We have a long-standing relationship with Saint Vincent de Paul in our communities and see just how much of an impact they have to the lives of families in our area each year. We are grateful to be able to continue to support their fundraising efforts this year and would like to wish all the SVP staff and volunteers a peaceful 2022.
