“Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 23rd August 2020 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

A colourful and unique politician, former Fine Gael TD for Cork South-West PJ Sheehan, died on August 10th last.  His wife Frances died just seven days previously on August 3rd.  Inseparable in this life, they are together again in the next.

In 2002 John Greene sat down with both of them in a room behind the family grocery store in Goleen.  It was a week before Christmas and seven months after PJ had lost his seat in Dail Eireann after 21 years. 

This wasn’t to be a political interview, or a lament for the loss of a Dail seat, but instead a look into the lives of a unique couple from the moment they were born.

PJ speaks about ………..

Growing up in Kilbrown and his enterprising father.

Taking over the business and receiving a ‘gift’ of a lorry from his father, which he himself had to pay for.

And…….  That famous last joust with Charles J. Haughey.

Frances speaks about………

How a ‘pretence’ story from home  forced her return from England.

Being far from impressed when she initially heard that her husband  was entering politics.

And …  An opportunity to gather her thoughts and plans while driving her husband to and from Dáil Éireann………………  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

Final Update of Fundraising for Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Website

As we conclude our fundraising for Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Website we are presently compiling a record in the Museum of the many very generous Individuals, Businesses and Local Organisations such as Millstreet Town Park Committee, Millstreet Community Council, Millstreet Vintage Club, Millstreet GAA and Millstreet Community Singers to mention but some – all of whom have been so enormously generous, supportive and encouraging.   Below we share the final update which we have just published on the GoFundMe platform.   While we have already individually thanked many of our very generous Donors we have yet to write to many acknowledging their contributions and extending thanks.

“Dear Wonderfully Supportive Friends we’ve reached our Final Update of our phenomenally successful GoFundMe Campaign in aid of Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Community Website. Our Grand Total of €6,534.84 (after fees) in the GoFundMe Project is absolutely magnificent and very much beyond our expectations. We wish to extend our most sincere thanks to the many people who have so very kindly supported this Project and who have been so hugely encouraging not only with their greatly appreciated Donations but also by their superbly uplifting comments. We also wish to thank the GoFundMe Team especially Ida for their professional guidance and assistance. This tremendous response to our Project will cover our ongoing costs and will also allow for important developments at the Museum and on the Website that up to now could not have become a reality. In addition to our GoFundMe total we have also received separate Donations from very generous Local Organisations, Businesses and Individuals reaching €2,908.00. When added to our GoFundMe total – the overall Grand Total is a hugely impressive €9,442.84. To everyone who has been so very generous, supportive and encouraging on this wonderful GoFundMe platform – heartfelt sincere thanks. As we say in Irish “Míle, míle buíochas” – a thousand, thousand thanks. As we shall shortly be deleting this GoFundMe Project we extend very best wishes to everyone. Your amazing generosity and tremendous support is greatly appreciated. Sincerely – Seán  Radley, Curator, Millstreet Museum and Member of Millstreet Website.”

Tubrid Holy Well Feature on “Irish Catholic” This Week

Photographer supreme, Valerie O’Sullivan recently visited Tubrid Holy Well where she captured a wonderful selection of images one of which features on the front page of this week’s “Irish Catholic” national newspaper (20th Aug. 2020).  Also included is a photographic feature within the popular weekly newspaper.   Valerie’s images oftentimes appear on booklets, calendars etc. within the Diocese of Kerry and far beyond….as well as on national and international newspapers.   It was Valerie who took the world famous picture of the laughing Queen Elizabeth with Pat O’Connell at Cork’s English Market.   Pat Breen who coordinates the distribution of the Catholic Papers here in Millstreet Parish indicates that extra copies of the “Irish Catholic” will soon be available in St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet.  For just €2.00 we encourage you to obtain your own copy with its local relevance this week.   Many thanks to Fr. Paddy, to Mary and to Pat for alerting us to the special Tubrid feature.  Tap on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)

We also conclude our tribute to the late Johnny O’Mahony of Tooreenduve, Ballydesmond, who died in 2015.

While we will never know what his views on Covid-19 would have been, we do know his views on diseases of old and their so-called cures.

Museum & Website Fundraising Success

Having now ended our hugely successful GoFundMe Project we observe the attached image of Clara Mountain, Millstreet, Co. Cork, Ireland at the foot of which nestles Millstreet Town where our Museum and Community Website are very much part of everyday Millstreet life.   It is, therefore, superbly uplifting to have witnessed such amazing generosity from so many wonderfully kind people and organisations at home and abroad who have supported our fundraising project.   By 20th August 2020 a total of €6515.67 will have been transferred from the GoFundMe platform to our Museum Bank of Ireland Account.   The total raised was €6,750 and fees of €234.33 were deducted.   A million thanks to all our splendid Supporters and also to the GoFundMe Company for making such an excellent fundraising platform available.   In addition the extra donations received by post and by hand will be included with the GoFundMe total when on Thursday, 20th August 2020 we shall publish on the Millstreet Website the overall Grand Total.   Renewed heartfelt thanks to Everyone who has so generously supported our fundraising for Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Website.  Míle Buíochas – Seán Radley, Curator, Millstreet Museum and Member of Millstreet Website Team.

Millstreet Carnival Fancy Dress Parade Autumn 1951

We thank Annabelle O’Sullivan, Jerry O’Regan and Hannelie O’Connor for arranging to share this truly superb image of Millstreet Carnival Fancy Dress Parade in the Autumn of 1951 (the year I was born!).   Most likely the picture was taken by Frank Reen (Snr.) outside his Pharmacy looking across the road to the O’Regan Family home and capturing two young participants in the Parade.   Members of the O’Regan Family, the Reen Family and the Justice Family are seen in the background of the image.   Feel most welcome to share on our Comment platform the names of any further people you may recognise in this wonderfully historic photograph 0f 69 years ago.   Tap on the image to enlarge.  (S.R.)
