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.)
