Recently at the Wallis Arms Hotel on two separate nights Millstreet / Duarigle Gaels Juvenile GAA celebrated with a superb Victory Social – on the Friday night with the younger members and on the Saturday night with the more senior players. Here we share images from the first occasion where Sportsman Supreme, Kevin Crowley was the Guest of Honour who presented the wonderfully successful players with their medals. The Disco which followed the meal, presentation and speeches – with very popular D.J. Kieran – was hugely enjoyed by the young players. Great credit is due to the many dedicated Coaches and Coordinators. Click on the images to enlarge.

What a truly wonderful response we’re received regarding our query just posted on our website last night! And we are so very grateful to Jerry Sheehan of Los Angeles, California, USA who has identified the Saints on both windows of St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet. The letters SC and SD provide an important clue – the “S” on all the windows symbolises the word “Saint”. Jerry now reveals that the Saint on the large window at the back of the Choir Gallery is Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque. And the Saint on the other window is Saint Charles Borremo while the Saint depicted in the smaller frame of the same window is Saint Dominic. Thanks a million, Jerry, for so very promptly contacting our Millstreet Museum email address with such highly significant information. (S.R.)
We have recently been asked by a number of people a query regarding two of our beautiful windows in St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet. Below we illustrate both windows. The first one has the SC indication and SD in the lower image on the same window. We welcome your suggestions re the identity of these Saints. The second window is the very large one behind where the Choir used to sing in the Church Gallery. Who is the Saint praying to the Lord? We would be very grateful of any assistance in these queries. Please use our Comment facility here or email millstreetmuseum @eircom.net …. Saints in most of the magnificent stained glass windows have been identified but these two windows are still the subject of research regarding the identity of the Saints depicted on the windows.Click on the images to enlarge.

Bob Kenney has been researching his family tree and is stuck at his great great great grandmother. She was Ellen Healy of Crippleford, and her marriage to Timothy Buckley on June 1, 1833 is listed in the Dromtarriffe Parish Register.
He had been trying to locate Crippleford, but after some time failed, so he asked us, but we’ve never heard of it, and no-one we asked has heard of it either. So we’re wondering if anyone of our readers has heard of it, or could ask someone that might know. Bob would be delighted if someone could help him out. If so please leave a comment below, or contact us directly [contact details are on our Contact Page].
A few thoughts:
1.. There are a couple of references to Crippleford online, all referring to “Thomas Wallace born Jan.6, 1806 in Rethcool, Duhallow, Cripleford on the Blackwater in County Cork,Ireland”.  . There are also more references to Crippleford in the parish register, so it’s safe to say that the name did/does exist in the Dromtarriffe Parish area.
