Presentation N.S. Open Day

Dear Parent / Guardian, we invite you and your child to visit our school on May 16th from 10am – 11am to give you the opportunity to become familiar with our school building and to meet with some of the staff of Presentation N.S. While the children play and interact with fellow peers enrolled for Junior Infants, we will have a brief chat with all the parents to help you prepare for the transition from playschool to primary school. We are looking forward to meeting you. [Enrolment Form][ref]

In a night of music and mayhem, Ireland’s most popular comedian explores all sorts of tings. Big tings and little tings. Personal tings and tings that are not so personal. Important international tings and tings that only affect the parish. In Shortt, it’s a funny show about tings!

Progress on the Waste Water Treatment Plant

Irish Water is progressing the Upgrade of the Millstreet Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP), which is located just off the Station Road. Notifications of  Compulsory Purchase Orders for small packets of adjacent lands in Coomlogane (by the WWTP) and Inchileigh (pumping station) appeared in the Corkman this week.

The project involves the decommissioning of the existing wastewater treatment processes, which will be replaced with a modern wastewater treatment plant constructed on adjacent vacant lands. The new wastewater treatment plant will cater for a future population equivalent of 3,220. The new WwTP will have capacity to treat the equivalent of over 2,500 wheelie bins of sewage. The existing WwTP is currently operating over its design capacity (capacity for 1,600 people, treating for 2250). The new plant will provide increased treatment capacity and facilitate future development within the town.  [read more …] “Progress on the Waste Water Treatment Plant”

A bitter wind blew from Clara
On that historic Millstreet day
The people waited with bated breath
Wasn’t Daniel and Majella on the the way.

At last they came into view
In their handsome touring car
So many fans in downtown Millstreet
They had come from near and far.

Daniel saluted as he passed us by
He had a wave for little Fionn
On a cold Saint Patrick’s day in Millstreet
Daniel brought a welcome ray of sun.

He cheers us with his singing
He lifts us when we’re down
North Cork will never be the same
Since Daniel o’ Donnell was feted
In good old Millstreet town.
