Millstreet Christmas Lights 2020

🎅  Usually this time of year, the Millstreet Christmas Lights committee would be preparing for their Annual Church Gate collection and getting their sponsorship letters ready to send to all the local businesses. However, this year is a lot different! There is no collection, and it doesn’t feel right to ask the businesses that have (and still are) facing uncertain times for donations.

🎄  We hope by setting up this , it’ll allow all locals, near and far, to donate a small amount as easily as possible. Please click on the following link to support us. gf.me/u/y5iv59

Our Credit Union account is also available for those who wish to donate directly:
CU Account No.: 55654/24
IBAN: IE54MATN99221205565405
BIC: MATNIE21

And as always donations can be handed into:
~ Niamh @ Wordsworth
~ Noreen @ Noirín’s Boutique
~ Catherine @ Dick Pomeroy & Co Auctioneers

⛄️  We have a surprise or two up our sleeves for this year and can’t wait for everyone (especially the children!) to see!

A bike was taken from outside of Supervalu Millstreet

The bike was found and returned to a happy little girl. 🙂

 

A bike was taken from outside of Supervalu,  Millstreet today Monday,  the 26th between 12.45 and 1 pm. If anyone has any information or may have seen this bike locally. See pictures attached please contact 087 6129504. We have a very sad little girl without her bike.

The bike did not have the streamers and it had the usual wear and tear.

The bike also had a horn but was missing the purple squeezer.

A FEW WORDS OF ENCOURAGMENT

This weekend we are once again facing a time of uncertainty as a community, Parish and country.  We are experiencing such a range of emotions and everyone is fearful of this virus coming into our lives and homes and the affect it would have on our loved ones and on ourselves. During the month of October let us pray to Our Lady for the strength and courage we need and let the words of Pope Francis be a daily reminder of how much we have to offer those who may need it.

Walsh family tree

I was wondering if someone might please be able to help me?

My name is Helen Sagan and I live in Australia. I understand it is not your job to do family history research for anyone who might happen to ask, but I am looking for some very specific local history information regarding the Rockite movement of 1822 and I thought you might best be able to assist or direct me.

I am researching my husbands Walsh family tree, on the Kerry side of the Blackwater, in-fact I visited your library back in 2011 and spent many pleasant hours looking through the Casey Collection.

At present I am investigating two brothers Healy, Tadj(Timothy?) and Liam(William?) that were executed on 10th August 1822 (along with 3 others) and have their names inscribed upon a monument erected at Shinnagh Cross, Rathmore. I believe these brothers to be my husband’s  Uncles and would sincerely love more information on them.

Most recently I discovered the Duchas School books (a truly marvellous & enlightening collection!) which introduced me to tales of old local people during the 1930’s, recalling stories their grandparents would have told them, some about the Whiteboy uprising and precisely the 1822 murder of William Brereton and the subsequent events that resulted in and around Rathmore.

Uniting All Through Internet Radio!

The true value of Internet Radio – our own Cork Music Station – was wonderfully demonstrated on this Tuesday’s “Radio Treasures” (13th Oct. 2020) when an hour before the programme I got in contact with Joan Healy of Drishane Road, Millstreet to indicate that Joan’s late husband the great Conchubhar Ó hÉalaithe would be featuring on an Archival Recording scheduled to be broadcast at 10pm.   By the time of transmission Joan’s superb Family were tuned in worldwide and sent many uplifting live messages to our programme.   Here we share a selection of those much appreciated messages:

Listening keenly here in the Middle East. It is a lovely sounding radio show …….   (Stephen Healy…tuning in from Quatar)

Thanks Seán for that program – it was great to hear my dad’s voice after so many years.   Eibhlín Ní Éalaithe,  Sydney, Australia

Caitríona Ní Éalaithe, Ciarán, Aisling & Oscar listening in Portmarnock, Co. Dublin.  Really enjoying the program.  Many thanks.

Greetings Seán – listening to you tonight are Siobhán Ní Éalaithe and Owen in London. Great show. Best wishes from us both.

Hello, Listening in from Dublin…Great show. Neilus (Church Street).

Sincere thanks to all the wonderful Healy Family worldwide for tuning in to our special broadcast.   A copy of the complete recording will later be presented to the Healy Family….as we all remember the late Conchubhar.

We chat about about Blessed Carlo Acutis who was beatified in Assisi, Italy on Saturday….and we hear about the power of one “Hail Mary”.

A new dimension to our weekly “Lunchtime Favourites” Show is being introduced this Sunday.   It all emerges from a suggestion we received from Millstreet Active Retirement Association:  It is very creatively suggested that we introduce the new idea in the following manner:  “A very special welcome today to all our Friends in Millstreet Active Retirement Association who because of the present Covid restrictions in place cannot resume the weekly dancing and yoga in the chair classes we all enjoyed so much.
So, my dear friends, like Din Joe in The Good Old Days, I invite you all to Take The Floor and dance, march and exercise to your heart’s content over the next hour of our weekly “Lunchtime Favourites”.
Let’s start the ball rolling with a selection of lively marches. Here we go….”  And I can promise you a wide variety of wonderfully rhythmic tunes – where one will wish to dance, waltz and relax.

Some 40 years ago the possibility of having a public Swimming Pool in Millstreet was seriously explored. This was the dedicated Committee formed to attempt bringing it to reality. One slight error in the caption…Mrs. Nellie O’Keeffe is on the right of Canon Browne. P.P.. Tap on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

It is often said that every cloud has a silver lining! And this was thus in Millstreet during the week.
