The Strictly Come Dancing Competition is organised by the Friends of Bandon Community Hospital to raise Funding for a new day room as part of the brand new Hospital. The first two Nights of the Competition are a sell out, John always had a keen interest in dance as he is a regular at the set Dancing in Aubane, dancing is in his blood and John said he always wanted to do Strictly Come Dancing. Michelle Barry from Devine Promotions in Six Mile Bridge who is overseeing all the Couples prepartaions has great praise for not only John and Margaret but all the other Competing Couples as they have been preparing very hard for this Competion since last August.

Apparently Timothy Herlihy was a bit of a local character in the Aubane area. His home was very near Clashatrake Bridge (between Aubane and Kilcorney Creamery), set on the lower slope of Glenleigh, and is clearly seen in the above photo which was taken from across the valley in Lacht in 1953, showing it and the surrounding valley, including a distant Mushera Mountain at the top left.

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
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

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.
Thank you, Larry Bruffee
