Millstreet “Darkness into Light” Walk Likely to Become Annual Event

Judging by the superbly uplifting response to the recent “Darkness into Light” 5K Walk which took place in Millstreet on Saturday, 8th May 2021 at 4.15 a.m. and was organised locally by the Munster Fire and Safety Team based in Main Street, Millstreet – it is felt that the Millstreet Walk for Pieta House will most likely become an annual event in conjunction with the many similar events which take place annually on a nationwide and international basis.   The 2021 Millstreet Walk began in Killarney Road and proceeded through the town to the Drishane Castle entrance gate and then returning to Main Street where Munster Fire and Safety provided much appreciated refreshments.  COVID-19 Safety precautions were observed.  Participants contributed generously to the praiseworthy fund. Here we share some 64 images from the inspiring event.   Tap on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)

While the “Darkness into Light” Walk  in Millstreet continued a further group climbed to the summit of Clara Mountain at the same time. Here we view Dawn Rising on Clara thanks to the recording of Joe Fitzgerald.

Cork Man Gets Top Dublin Young Fine Gael Job

Millstreet’s Gary O’Donovan has been elected as the Dublin Regional Organiser of Young Fine Gael, following YFG’s recent National Conference.

We thank Gary’s Family for sharing this wonderfully uplifting news. Sincere congratulations to Gary and every success for the future. Tap on the image to enlarge. (S.R.)

The former Millstreet Community School student is currently reading Law and History at Dublin City University. He has been previously involved in many campaigns for the party at various levels in both YFG and the senior party.

His move to national politics began at the Young Fine Gael National Conference which took place for the first time ever online and was attended by almost 500 young people across Ireland.

Gary has spent the last 18 months building up the DCU Young Fine Gael Branch, which was recipient of YFG Dublin Branch of the Year 2020 and has won awards from the University’s Clubs and Societies. The Branch has also seen its numbers significantly rise and he successfully oversaw the planning of a trip to Brussels to enhance YFG’s relations with its sister party in the Youth European People’s Party.

Gary (20) said he hopes to make an impact on the national youth political stage after being given such a mandate to serve and make a difference.  “As Dublin Regional Organiser, I am responsible for the day-to-day management of the organisation in the Region and I will have a massive opportunity to make YFG’s presence in the Capital ever stronger. I am bursting with ambition on making sure young people feel Young Fine Gael best represents their interests and that it is an organisation in which they are then able to call their political home”.

Eileen Cotter R.I.P

Old Coach Avenue,
Millstreet.
27th  April 2020
We the family of Eileen wish to express our sincere gratitude for the kindness and support we received on the sad loss of our wonderful sister. 
Due to the restrictions, it was difficult not being able to meet with family, relatives and friends but we really appreciated the Mass cards, phone calls and kind words we encountered.
We would like to thank her work colleagues and friends for their continued friendship and support over the years and to everyone who lined the street the day of the burial.   We found great comfort in this.
We would like to give our thanks to Dr. Michael Casey and to all the Staff in CUH who participated in her care.
We would also like to thank Fr. Jack,
Fr. Gerard, Sharon, Julie, Davy Tarrant and Cora for their help and guidance with the funeral arrangements.

The Holy sacrifice of the Mass will be offered for your intentions. 
Let those who think of her today, a little prayer to Jesus say. 

Rainbow to shine on Carnegie Hall for PRIDE

At April’s Macroom Municipal District Meeting Cllr Gobnait Moynihan requested Council to light it up the Macroom Town Hall and Carnegie Hall Millstreet, in the rainbow colours, to celebrate PRIDE festival.

In response to Fianna Fáil Cllr Gobnait Moynihan motion; Cork County Council stated that Macroom Municipal District is in the process of arranging that both Macroom Town Hall & Carnegie Hall Millstreet will be lit for the period PRIDE festival in the rainbow colours.

Welcoming the response Cllr Gobnait Moynihan said “ I’m delighted Cork County Council are lighting up the buildings, as it will not only look smashing in the rainbow colours but will also make a real statement too. ”

Created in 1978, by the artist Gilbert Baker, the rainbow coloured PRIDE flag is a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer LGBTQ rights movement. The rainbow colours in on the flag are thought to reflect the diversity of the LGBTQ community.

Commenting on the move to Cllr Gobnait Moynihan said “Shining the rainbow colours really demonstrates Cork County Council commitment to its citizens. It expresses Cork County Council solidarity and support for the LGBTQ community.”

We discover a local connection with the Royal Funeral of Prince Philip on Saturday, 17th April 2021 in that one of the Horseback Guards (seen on extreme right) is Tara Kelly whose Grandmother, Kathy Kelly of London and formerly of Clongeel near Kanturk, is a Grandniece of the late Han and Luke O’Keeffe of The Tanyard, Millstreet….meaning that Tara is the Great Grandniece of Han and Luke.   We thank Kathy for alerting us to this historic connection.
