UPDATE: Poet Supreme Francis Duggan got in touch with us from Australia this Sunday morning to indicate the the Bird is a JUVENILE EUROPEAN ROBIN (3 to 4 months old). Thanks a million Francis.

Feis Laitiarain Cullen

Feis Laitiarain Cullen recently held a local commemoration for Feis Laitiarain on St Laitiarain’s Day 25-Jul-2020. The history of the Feis was presented along with folklore associated with St. Laitiarain. There was a tribute to Diarmuid O’Cadhla (Der Kiely)  RIP and his grandfather Sean O’Cadhla who set up the first Feis plus stories, pipes, music and songs.   The first Feis was held in Cullen 122 years ago, in 1898 and has been kept alive ever since. The Feis was particularly challenged during the troubles of 1918 when planes flew low to the ground overhead to try to disrupt the Feis, but the Feis goers held strong and continued with the Feis.

Local musicians, world class piper, singers and story tellers performing here carry the music nationwide and beyond with outstanding comments from people from here to New Zealand on social media outlets during the Covid-19 lockdown.   They represent the local Comhaltas, Pipe Band and Scór GAA branches and have achieved several County, Provincial, All Ireland and World titles.

Truly Magnificent Response to the Annual Funding of Museum & Millstreet Website

The amazing generosity of the very kind Supporters of Millstreet Museum and Millstreet Website has been superbly demonstrated within the past 22 hours when a magnificent €1,575.00 has been very kindly donated through our Go Fund Me page by 35 wonderfully generous people at home and abroad.  To reach such an uplifting target in less than one day is utterly incredible and is hugely appreciated.   It allows us to continue our work at Millstreet Museum and to maintain the Millstreet Website.   The work of Volunteers in these Projects is vital and to them we extend heartfelt thanks.  Our Go Fund Me page will remain open until the end of next week coinciding with the week of our usual Church Gate Collection which due to COVID-19 this year has been replaced by this Go Fund Me project.   Míle buíochas to All.  (S.R.)

Tenth Anniversary of Maria Healy, Curracahill, Millstreet & Ballygrogan, Grenagh

TENTH ANNIVERSARY

Maria Healy (née O’Sullivan)

Curracahill, Millstreet/Ballygrogan, Grenagh

In loving memory of Maria, whose 10th Anniversary occurs on 30th July

Deeply loved, sadly missed and always remembered by her loving husband Tony, daughter Marita, sons Dan, Bill, John and James, daughters-in-law, grandchildren to whom she is fondly known as ‘Granny in Heaven’, brothers, sisters, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces, extended family and friends.

We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name.

In life we loved you dearly; in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you; you did not go alone,

For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories; your love is still our guide.

Though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same;

But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

The Anniversary Mass took place at St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet on Sunday, 26th July 2020 at 11.30 a.m.

May Maria Rest in Peace.

Annual Funding of Millstreet Museum & Millstreet Website

(Update Already within the first 15 minutes of launching our Go Fund Me page we have received greatly appreciated support from Rebecca, Michael & Siobhán, AnnPatrick from USA continues to support Millstreet based projects in a most generous manner.   Míle buíochas, dear Friends.)

Although we have our annual permit for the holding of our Annual Church Gate Collection for this coming weekend 1st & 2nd August 2020 we shall not be holding this Collection due to COVID-19.  Instead, for this year, we are setting up a Go Fund Me page to afford the opportunity of supporting the two local community-based voluntary services – Millstreet Museum & Millstreet Website.   Running costs at our Museum include annual insurance of €1,000.00 plus lighting, heating and development expenses while for the Millstreet Website we have hosting and domain name costs.

One can visit our Go Fund Me page by clicking  this Go Fund Me link.

Our main source of funding for Millstreet Museum and the Millstreet Website is through an Annual Church Gate Collection in August.   This year, however, due to COVID-19 we cannot hold this Collection.   Thus we extend an invitation to our Supporters to kindly consider contributing towards this Go Fund Me appeal so that we as Volunteers can continue to make our Museum and Website Services available.   The running costs of both are quite substantial.   We greatly appreciate any contribution received.    Sincere thanks also for the wonderful words of encouragement we constantly receive regarding the provision of these two community-based important Services.   Míle buíochas – Seán Radley, Curator Millstreet Museum & Team Member of Millstreet Website.
