Eddie Hogan from Cork in his 90s is to present at tonight’s Gramophone Circle in Millstreet Day Care Centre, Clara Road at 8.15.  All very welcome.  (S.R.)


The video above has been published by RTÉ of Millstreet coming to a standstill for the Annual Spring Horse Fair of 1965. The Fair was not only a time for bargaining and dealing. It was also a social occasion that continues to attract the crowds, young and old, to the town. The video above is from a Newsbeat report broadcast on 12 April 1965, and was probably held on Sunday February 28th 1965 (the closest Sunday to March 1st).

Below is a gallery of 27+ stills from the video. It is likely many of the people are not locals, but it would be interesting if people could help us recognise some people in the photos: continue reading…

2003-06 Changes in the Square 1 Jerry O'Riordan's Grocery Shop and StoreUp to the 1990’s Jerry O’Riordan’s was one of a number of grocery shops in the Square in Millstreet. In June 2003 the three houses at the corner of the square which made up the shop and store were to be demolished to make way for the new credit union. Seán Radley was on hand to take photos of the demolition and at the time were published on what was then for a short time, the Millstreet website (millstreet.20m.com).

Catch the Community Spirit - see litter - pick it up 02Millstreet Tidy Town Association would like to invite one and all to take part in the Anti Litter Competition for 2015. It is potentially worth €1750 to the Millstreet Tidy Town Association. What has that to do with me I hear you ask ?

The annual spend for the Millstreet Tidy Town Association per annum is roughly between €9000 to €10000. This prize fund would go a long way to help aid our efforts in maintaining our beautiful town.

The first adjudication will take place on the 27th of April, so that only gives us 3 weeks. Everybody can help, even just by tidying up outside our own houses and surrounding footpaths. There will be Litter Pick Ups organised in the coming weeks. Catch the Community Spirit - see litter - pick it upWe would really appreciate if one and all got involved.
It won’t take long if we all do a small part. Why not get together with your neighbours and organise your own Litter Pick Up in your street.

We have a beautiful town and would love to be able to showcase this. Millstreet has won first prize in this competition in previous years. It would be great if we could do it again.
