Prayer of Protection Against Coronavirus COVID-19

We thank Pat Breen for the following wonderfully meaningful

Prayer of Protection Against Coronavirus COVID-19

               Lord Jesus Christ, You travelled through towns and villages curing every disease and illness.  At your command, the sick were made well.  Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of the Coronavirus, that we may experience Your healing love.

  Heal those who are sick with the virus.  May they regain their strength and health through quality medical care.  

  Heal us from our fear which prevents nations working together and neighbours from helping one another.

Tuning into Millstreet Church Television

For those fortunate enough to be able to receive an acceptable reception of Millstreet Church Television one may tune into the live transmission of Mass when it’s being celebrated.   For those who wish to know how to tune in:   The signal is broadcast on UHF Channel 53 which is an analogue channel.   Most modern televisions broadcast a digital signal but many still have an analogue facility which can be tuned in to UHF Channel 53 only when the signal is operating during a Service in the Church.  The signal also depends on the aerial facing in the direction of the Church.  This can then be saved.   If one wished to acquire this service on their television the wisest approach is to contact a Professional Television Technician who can determine if your television can in fact received the signal.   Location and distance from the Church is also a determining factor.    The next feature will describe how you may receive Mass transmissions through the Internet.  (S.R.)

2020 Streetscape, Signage an Improvement Scheme – Carriganima, Inchigeela, and Millstreet

Councillors at the recent Macroom/Millstreet Municipal District voted unanimously to name the villages of Carriginima, Inchigeela and the town of Millstreet as the recipients of the 2020 Streetscape, Signage an Improvement Scheme. The decision was welcomed by Fianna Fáil Councillor Gobnait Moynihan who described it as “great news as it has the potential to ease the financial burden of paying for paint, scaffolding and labour, which can be quiet costly for house owners and businesses”.

Under this scheme tenants or owners of buildings can avail of a grant of up to 50% of the full cost of painting the facades along the street which may include paint, labour, scaffold/ hoist and other materials etc.

Previously the Scheme only included towns within the county of Cork and recently extended to include key villages. Cllr Gobnait Moynihan said ” I urged to the Council the expand the scope of the Scheme, so as to promote regeneration and business growth in our rural villages as well.”

“One of our greatest amenities as a county is our picturesque towns and villages. The paint scheme has led to excellent results such as the village of Beal Átha na nGaorthaidh which availed of the Scheme in 2019. I look forward to seeing the people and businesses of Inchigeela, Carriginima and Millstreet build on the past success of this Scheme.
