Superb Rainbows Over Millstreet on St. Ita’s Day 2020

At least two very colourful Rainbows appeared over Millstreet on this Tuesday, 15th January 2020 – the Feast of St. Ita.   Celebrated in Killeedy, Co. Limerick where a beautiful Church Window (in Ashford in the Parish of Killeedy) depicting the renowned Saint may be seen – there is also a close link with St. Ita in Millstreet and is especially associated with Kilmeedy and Tubrid….which is oftentimes referred to as the Holy Well of Ita where in a bygone age people were baptised in the waters of Tubrid.  The two Rainbows serve as a reminder of St. Ita’s links to Millstreet.  Our images were photographed in West End and Mount Leader this Tuesday morning.  Tap on the pictures to enlarge.(S.R.)

Cycling adventure

The “Lost/Stolen Panniers” has been found and safely returned to it’s owner.  Delighted that she can continue on her adventures with her bicycle  and panniers in and around the Country.

She sometimes writes a blog when  she goes cycling but  wouldn’t normally write one when it was as short a trip as yesterday, but the kindness which   was shown to her prompted her to highlight Millstreet with Cork’s Old Butter Road .

We thank Principal, Pól Ó Síodhcháin for sharing this Friday evening (10th Jan. 2020) images from the BTYSTE 2020 at the RDS in which MCS features in a number of Award Winning Projects.   Sincere congratulations to All the Students who participated and a special mention to the Award Winning Projects.   Well done also to the Staff Members who have been wonderfully supportive.  One of the brilliant MCS Projects featured in today’s front page of the “Irish Examiner”.   Tap on the various images to enlarge.  (S.R.)   Pól has just shared the following update“What a proud night for MCS at BTYSTE!

Millstreet Community School Features Superbly at BTYSTE 2020 in Dublin’s RDS

One of the many images captured during our visit to the truly magnificent BTYSTE at Dublin’s RDS on Thursday, 9th Jan. 2020. We recorded a wonderful amount of very interesting interviews for a special “Radio Treasures” programme on Cork Music Station on Tuesday, 21st Jan. from 9:30 to 11:30pm.. In this image we meet Students Darragh, Donagh and Harry with Science Teachers Eileen and Francy Lyons. We were also joined by Cancer Scientist Barbara. This important Project attracted enormous interest as did the other four Projects which we shall later share. This particular Project dealt with the Awareness of Testicular Cancer in Young Boys and Men. The very presence of such a Project at the National Exhibition could well lead to avoiding very challenging health issues through awareness of early diagnosis. Tap on the picture for further clarity.
