Help: Local Genealogists?

Does anyone know of local Genealogists, willing to help people with searching for their ancestors? (professional or non professional).

We often get asked, and much of the time don’t have a good answer, and end up doing much of the work ourselves, but often we just don’t have the time. With thanks any help, Michael.

The Pitch & Putt has Reopened for the Summer 😊

Millstreet Pitch & Putt Club is now in full swing after the winter season. The course which is in existence since 1964 is looking immaculate with its manicured greens, lush fairways and practice driving range. Coaching for both adults and juveniles will take place on 14th May. Membership will remain the same as in previous years at the very affordable price of €20 per family, €15 per adult, and €10 per juvenile and Actively Retired, which can be paid to any member of the committee. Competitions will begin in May for the many trophies that have been donated to the club, with the most recent ones being The AIB Trophy and The Credit Union Trophy kindly sponsored by our local financial institutions.
The club is very grateful this year to Cork County Council for the LCDC grant of €8000 which will help in a big way to repair the roof of the club house which has been getting progressively worse over the years and also for the general upkeep of the course.
There is no better way to enjoy a lovely sunny evening than playing pitch and putt under the beautiful Clara Mountain, so come on, everybody welcome.
