Hi, I lost a wedding band in the vicinity of the Millstreet GAA Club on Saturday evening. I had just finished the Slí Gealteacht Mhuscraí race. I had it after my shower but not in the car on the way home so it must have come off between the shower block the GAA clubhouse and the adjacent car park. If you hear of a ring being found you might let me know on 087-0567664. It is inscribed on the inside. – Dave

Marie Kelleher got special mention on Ireland’s Got Mór Talent last evening where she sang Hopelessly Devoted to You (Grease, 1978) for the judges. As she says herself, she’s better at the singing than the talking, and a mighty performance too. Marie and her sister Breeda make up the Diamond Sisters and we’ve known for years how good they are. Watch her performance on Ireland’s Got Mór Talent on the Virgin Media Player (from 18:49 to 20:13) (here)

“TORONTO, Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – Adventus Zinc Corporation (TSXV: ADZN, OTCQX: ADVZF) (“Adventus”) is pleased to announce that is has entered into a heads of agreement to sell its Lismore, Fermoy, Millstreet and Charleville exploration projects in Ireland to the privately-owned Australian exploration company BMEx Limited … read the full press release on PRNewswire“
The above press release was published yesterday, and frankly I had to read it twice to make sure I had read it right. Essentially the Adventus Zinc Mining Exploration Company purchased the rights to mine the area around Millstreet, and sold it to an Austrialian mining company. Just like that.
So what’s going on, and where is the mine? Well there isn’t any mine, nor have any exploratory drill holes been sunk as of yet. The companies are trading on the hope of finding Zinc in the Millstreet area. (Ireland has the highest concentration of zinc in the world.
Why Millstreet? Millstreet lies right on top of the Killarney-Mallow Fault Line, a major fault line where two tectonic plates were pushing against each other 270 million years ago, which ended up forming the mountains south of here. In creating the mountains, the surface of the earth buckled and layers containing Zinc from deep underground were pushed up to the surface where they are remain to this day, available for mining.
It is no coincidence therefore that the map of the Millstreet Block (below) follows the fault line from Killarney to Banteer. Nothing might ever happen with mining … but you’d never know.

The CEO of London’s number two homebuilder tells John Reynolds of his upset, as an immigrant, about the UK’s vote to quit Europe
For a self-confessed avid follower of politics in these islands and across the Atlantic, the office of Donagh O’Sullivan, CEO of Galliard Homes, has an apt setting, on the edge of Westminster in the heart of London and just around the corner from the home of Channel 4 television. The 50 year-old Corkman, who grew up in Cullen, near Millstreet, was one of seven sons of parents who owned a petrol station and bus-hire company in the village.
A graduate of UCC, he has lived in the English capital for 28 years and now runs what is the second largest residential developer in the city, with FTSE-listed Berkeley Group ranking number one.

What’s the secret to staying card sharp as you approach your 100th birthday? For Cullen man Paddy O’Mahony, the answer is to eat well, enjoy lots of fresh air — and play a sociable game of cards three times a week.
And he’s a good man for the advice, as his great-granny lived to 103, and his 94-year-old sister is a card player too! Paddy, who was 99 on Christmas Day, lives in Cullen, near Millstreet. He and his late wife, Mary, from Kerry, had four children, Bridie, Thade, Noel and Siobhan.
He plays cards every week in Cullen, Castleisland and Ballydesmond and says: “My father played the game of 45 and 31. He taught me how to play cards at the age of five.” Paddy’s card-playing partner, Betty, has been alongside him for 30 years, and he also stays active by minding the animals at the home farm at Meenaglóherane … read the very interesting full article on EchoLive.ie
