Fair play to all that braved the Mushera Mountain Climb on this wet and windy Christmas morning, in aid of our local Reach Out Cancer Support. Not for the faint heartded as the rain was horizontal on top of the mountain, but here’s a few of those that went up:
There was no hanging around at the top, and only this small group was there when we arrived Clara and Ainsey were collecting donations for ROCS at the start of the climbJohn Dineen, John Twomey, Darragh Twomey and Michael O’Riordan were having a break in some shelter
Michelle and her greyhound. He wasn’t liking the weather!
People from Aubane and other parts of Millstreet Parish on the morning of Christmas Day
Climb to the summit of Mushera Mountain quite a daunting task one has to say
For those who sponsor them for their favorite charity for this credit in heaps they are due
To climb Mushera in the depths of Winter to a cause one would have to be true
On Christmas morning no matter what the weather they scale the heights of Mushera hill
It may be frosty, raining or snowing or the gale force winds blowing a cold chill
The Mushera Christmas morning climbers some of them years ago were young
For their courage they are well worth admiring and their praises deserve to be sung … continue reading the full article “The Mushera Christmas Morning Climbers”
Greetings from the USA. My mothers family came from Millstreet. This is the info I have: Patrick D. Kelleher born in the Aubane section of Millstreet, County Cork, Ireland on 3-15-1851. He was the son of Daniel and Mary (Sweeney) Kelleher. He came to the USA about 1871, bringing with him his sister’s youngest daughter. He settled first at Factory Hollow in Greenfield, Massachusetts, USA living there with his sister Mrs. Mary Daley. He was at marriage a farmer living in Greenfield aged 28.
I have been over to Ireland the last three years in a row. I brought my mother the last 2 trips, one of which we did take a short trip to Millstreet to look at gravestones. Could not find a Kelleher headstone anywhere……..poor attempt at humor! So many Kellehers and Sweeneys that I could never sort it out. I will be making a trip again in 2017. Any connections on distant relatives would be appreciated.

A week ago there was a sudden and unexpected heavy snowfall which blanketed the area, especially Mushera which got a good deep cover. While it’s lovely to look at, hopefully it will be the last one of the year, and that the weather will pick up, after what has been an awful winter. (With thanks to Paul/Noreen O’Connor who took the 30+ photos below at dawn last Sunday in the Mushera / Knocknakilla area).
