Recently at the Wallis Arms Hotel on two separate nights Millstreet / Duarigle Gaels Juvenile GAA celebrated with a superb Victory Social – on the Friday night with the younger members and on the Saturday night with the more senior players. Here we share images from the first occasion where Sportsman Supreme, Kevin Crowley was the Guest of Honour who presented the wonderfully successful players with their medals. The Disco which followed the meal, presentation and speeches – with very popular D.J. Kieran – was hugely enjoyed by the young players. Great credit is due to the many dedicated Coaches and Coordinators. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

What a truly wonderful response we’re received regarding our query just posted on our website last night! And we are so very grateful to Jerry Sheehan of Los Angeles, California, USA who has identified the Saints on both windows of St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet. The letters SC and SD provide an important clue – the “S” on all the windows symbolises the word “Saint”. Jerry now reveals that the Saint on the large window at the back of the Choir Gallery is Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque. And the Saint on the other window is Saint Charles Borremo while the Saint depicted in the smaller frame of the same window is Saint Dominic. Thanks a million, Jerry, for so very promptly contacting our Millstreet Museum email address with such highly significant information. (S.R.)
We have recently been asked by a number of people a query regarding two of our beautiful windows in St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet. Below we illustrate both windows. The first one has the SC indication and SD in the lower image on the same window. We welcome your suggestions re the identity of these Saints. The second window is the very large one behind where the Choir used to sing in the Church Gallery. Who is the Saint praying to the Lord? We would be very grateful of any assistance in these queries. Please use our Comment facility here or email millstreetmuseum @eircom.net …. Saints in most of the magnificent stained glass windows have been identified but these two windows are still the subject of research regarding the identity of the Saints depicted on the windows.

Hello ! I plan to be in Millstreet in late March, likely March 30 and 31.
my goal is to find more information about my grandfather Thomas Bartholomew Mantle b. County Cork 1820, d. Kentucky USA 1903
and/or his likely father Thomas C. Mantle b. 1799 in Cork.
I have found a Thomas Mantle in the Tithe Applotment
Books, 1823-1837. he is listed several times.
I have also found a Thomas Mantle as a butcher in Millstreet, along with a
possible brother, Joseph Mantle in Slater’s Directory
Would there likely be additional information on him anywhere
in the Millstreet area ?
before arriving in Millstreet, I will have visited the various
repositories in Dublin, but with limited time constraints. any tips
you have for searching there would be appreciated.
Is there anyone you might recommend to guide me in finding more
information about my family in Milstreet ?
I am also sending this via the messenger contact to Millstreet.ie.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
