Sincere Sympathy to Hannelie and the O’Connor Family

On behalf of the Millstreet Website Team we wish to extend our sincere sympathy  and prayers to Hannelie, to Shane, to Alan and the members of the extended O’Connor Family on the very sad departure of Maurice to his Eternal Heavenly Reward.  R.I.P..   It was Hannelie supported by her beloved husband, Maurice who first established the Millstreet Website providing such a magnificent means  of local and global communication.   Millstreet will forever be hugely grateful for this superb initiative decades ago.  As the years progressed the Website Team grew in numbers and in confidence.  Maurice – forever the True Gentleman – always so wonderfully friendly with such a great smile, supportive, caring, welcoming, a splendid sense of humour and possessing an inspiring strong Faith.  In the world of Sport, Maurice did Trojan work in the promotion of Millstreet Athletic Club oftentimes so spontaneously giving of his time and talents in the preparation, the running and the aftermath of many a great sporting event.   Maurice was supremely supportive of Hannelie’s great enthusiasm as a very keen Cyclist.  He has very clearly enriched the lives of All.  We all feel so very privileged for having known such a True Friend whose magnificent spirit, kindness and happiness brought joy to everyone.   As an inspiring Happy Couple Millstreet is truly blessed that Hannelie and Maurice decided many years ago to establish their home in Ireland – in beautiful Dooneen West. God rest the gentle Soul of Maurice.  Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.  (S.R.)

Eily’s Report – 12th Oct. 2021

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a cáirde and welcome to my weekly Report.

The lovely long warm days over the weekend were just what the doctor ordered for all those who availed of them to get as much outdoor enjoyment as they could before the Winter sets in. It’s surely that because of Lockdowns and restrictions on every front ,that people are prepared to go a little mad when the tension is eased a bit. Confirmations on Friday and Saturday led to many family celebrations ,the fine weather helping in no small way. There were tractor runs to choose from and more to come when the great historic Village of Carriganima will show their colours next Sunday, which is held in support of their local transport CART. In Aubane where 110 vehicles took part ,and Gerdie Buckley created a record by reversing a Tractor & Trailer 5Kms in 46mins 27secs. And all proceeds in aid of their wonderful Community Centre. We’ve heard of nothing like that since the time that I reversed a 42seater Coach through 12 North Cork Towns to raise funds for LTV2 at the time. It was unusual and risky, and it worked. Buíochas le Dia.                                                                                                               The Centenary Commemorations in Dromtarriffe/Derrinagree were also blessed with a fine day, Not everybody was that lucky, Two of our friends who embarked on a Walking holiday four days last week got rain every day. So a fine spell is nothing  to be taken for granted. The rising sun of the past week took on a rather mythical,or magical touch,with the hills around coated in delicate fog and the slanting sun turning the scene into silver as it came through the trees. Lovely. [read more …] “Eily’s Report – 12th Oct. 2021”
