Keep Dogs safe.

Just had a message in:

A man with an occupant in his van was stopped outside our gate asking for directions to St. John’s well. Was inquiring about our dog and how old she was. He was curious as to how she acted as well. We watched as he drove towards Aubane area driving slowly past everyone’s house. A newish silver van with English Reg plates. Very suspicious and let everyone to keep watch of their dogs.

Remember keep an eye out for any Plastic Ties or markings outside your gate, and let anyone know if you see anything on other peoples properties.

Mike Kelleher, of Aubane Cottage – 8th Anniversary

Thinking Of My Father, Mike Kelleher, today, May 2nd, on his 8th Anniversary In Heaven.  My father was originally from Aubane Cottage, Millstreet.

I cannot believe eight years ago you were with us celebrating Kathleen’s Communion. I am a very lucky and a blessed daughter to have had my Dad also be my best friend.

Life has been so different without you in it and many days I shed a tear when I have to remind myself that you’re not here physically. But I do feel you and I know you hear us.

A huge part of our life is missing and that was you. I love you and miss you Daddy everyday!!

Thinking of you on your 8th Anniversary in Heaven Today and Mom is with you on your Anniversary. Love and Miss You, Margaret, James, Brian and Kathleen and Michael Kelleher

Early plans for County Cork Windfarm Revealed

Coillte and Brookfield Renewables are now attempting to categorise the Balinagree / Mushera windfarm as a Strategic Infrastructural Development, thus avoiding the need for a normal planning application, and speeding up the development, and most likely putting residents concerns in the background.  Read more about this development in the Evening Echo.

Wind Farm being planned for Mushera and Ballinagree

David contacted us recently about a new wind farm that is being planned for Mushera Mountain, and near Ballinagree. He and others are concerned that wind turbines will destroy the scenic walking route, “the Duhallow Way”, that the wind turbines will pose a serious health hazard to people living near them, and also cause severe disruption to the hen harrier population and wildlife of the Mushera Valley, and is asking people to sign the petition to try to stop this development.

Ballinagree Wind Farm and is a joint venture between Irish forestry company Coillte, and the large Canadian multinational Brookfield Renewables, and is currently in the planning stage.
