Cycling on the Footpaths

We have been asked to please make people aware, and especially younger kids that it is very dangerous to cycle on the narrow footpaths in town . One lady who contacted us has been hit once coming out a shop door, and two older customers had near misses and could have been badly hurt.

It is actually an offence to cycle on a footpath unless you are entering or exiting a property, and it comes with an on the spot €40 fine.  However, Cycling Ireland state that “if the roads are dangerous and narrow, we would prefer to see children cycling on footpaths than not cycling at all,”…  so just be careful please.

Fr Ferris’s Parish Histories

Fr. William Ferris was a curate in Millstreet Parish from 1934-1935, whose lifelong mission was to restore Ireland’s linguistic and cultural purity and to counteract what he saw as the Anglicisation of Irish society.  As he said of recording oral history and folklore which was in danger of going to the grave: “Each time the east wind blows, it takes an old seanachaí with it”.

Last week, the Bishop of Kerry Ray Browne will officially launched “History of the Parishes of BallymacElligott, Ballyseedy, O’Brennan and Nohoval” by Fr. Ferris which had been banned by his predecessor Dr Michael O’Brien, Bishop of Kerry 85 years ago, having taken exception to a claim by Fr. Ferris that St. Brendan was born in BallymacElligott and not in Fenit, as was accepted diocesan tradition.

In 1937 he published the book “Sráid an ṁuilinn, A History of its people by its people for its people” (under the pseudonym of Timothy Broker, to avoid the book being blocked), which recorded local history and more from the Millstreet Parish, which had been gathered at local station masses. See details of that book here.

Local Election Boundary Changes

The Local Electoral Area Boundary Committee’s report on the redrawing of Local Electoral Area boundaries was published last night. Millstreet has been in the Kanturk-Mallow Municipal District, but is now looks set to change into the Macroom-Blarney District.

The Electoral Divisions of Caherbarnagh, Coomlogane, and Drishane are the ones that will move to the Macroom District, with Cullen, Dromtarriffe, Rathcoole and Kilcorney  remaining in the Kanturk District.

No matter where they put us, we are out on a limb, but does this mean we are back in Muskerry which Millstreet always was in the past? 😉
