Keeping Your Gut Healthy For Overall Well Being


Keeping Your Gut Healthy For Overall Well Being
Capabu Health Food Shop, Millstreet, Co. Cork

Did you ever notice that when your gut is healthy, your overall health and vitality improves? And when you eat the wrong food you feel awful? We have too much choice these days and we can lose track of ourselves with processed foods that destroy our gut health. The good news is that you are in charge of what you eat and your food choices are in your own hands. And in Ireland, we have wonderful food choices that are really healthy and increase our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. As the wise person said “Food is Medicine” – or not!

In this one hour talk you will learn:

• Which foods cause inflammation and illness in the body and which foods help it.
• How when we absorb our food fully, it dictates how well we are nourished.
• How taking a break from food can have a great healing effect.
• The new science of food and gut health.

Please join us at Capabu Health Food Shop in Millstreet
Date: Thursday, February 27, 2020, 6-7 pm

Very Successful “Sing Along” Event Most Enjoyable

The regular “Sing Along” event at Millstreet Day Care Centre this Wednesday (19th Feb. 2020) evening was most enjoyable and a true credit to Helen, Petra and their dedicated Team.   In a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and with the aid of background music everyone participated in the group singing and we also had some uplifting individual presentations.   Splendid refreshments were provided at half-time.   Everyone is very welcome and we would encourage attendance at the next event.   Here we share some 7 images to illustrate the relaxed setting and atmosphere.  Numbers attending were influenced this evening by the coinciding of two other events elsewhere.  Tap on the pictures to enlarge.  (S.R.)

Millstreet’s Very Own “Disneyland” Children’s Playground Totally Delights All

Wednesday, 12th Feb. 2020 at Millstreet Town Park on an initial visit to Millstreet New Children’s Playground delighted children from Junior Infants, Presentation N.S., Millstreet and the children from “Curious Minds” Creche gave their 100% approval to what could easily be described as our very own “Disneyland”.   While all the amazing units impressed it was the High Web Net which attracted the most attention!   And we encourage you to experience the state-of-the-art very safe bouncy floor. We met with many members of the Coordinating Committee on the bright morning and we received a wonderful guided tour from Geraldine (née O’Leary) O’Sullivan of all the magical area of this truly magnificent facility which is going to be such a superb benefit for present and future generations of young children here in Millstreet and beyond.    The very generous support received has made this possible.    While the official opening is still in the future the Playground is presently open daily during daylight hours.   Contractors Browne Brothers of Carrigadrohid must take a huge bow on completing such a fascinating facility to the very highest standards.   Here we share 22 images from our visit to this magical location on Wednesday morning.   Tap on the pictures to enlarge.  (S.R.)

Dedicated Committee Member Geraldine explains:  

“The Contractors have finished the playground, our insurance is arranged and I’m delighted to share with you that we passed and are in receipt of our safety certificate 2 weeks ahead of time. In fact the completed project is some 2 months ahead of the original finish date.  It’s great that on this Wednesday morning we are open .  So very exciting for the children. We have a few remaining thank you notes to issue.  The IRD Duhallow representative visited us on Friday and advised that they had been closely following the Playground Project on Millstreet.ie. He commented on the fantastic community forum that you and your team host and support for the people of Millstreet.
He also commented on the widespread backing from the overall community was really uplifting – from the volunteers running fundraising, the variety and number of events taking place , the involvement of children, clubs, businesses and the communication updates via our community website to the public was a perfect example of the community working together for the rural development that IRD stands and strives for. He also commented that this was some of the fastest fundraising efforts for a community of our size and with the €120,000 spend we now really have a top class playground.”  Below we share 13 more images.

Stephen Nolan on WTRTM on C103 at 7pm Sunday

We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information on this Sunday’s “Where the Road Takes Me” – 9th Feb. 2020.  (S.R.)

Travelling to a Formula One Grand Prix in Silverstone, Brazil or the US, or how about meeting many of your favourite world famous Country Music or sporting stars, or taking a motorbike ride across Alaska.

Anyone of these may be on your bucket list.  However, on Where the road takes me this Sunday evening, John Greene meets a man who has managed to tick them all off, one by one.  And he’s not finished yet, having every intention of adding more to his long list of ‘have dones’.

Stephen Nolan was born in the village of Ballinspittle, once famous for its moving statue.  His job which provided him with the time and the finance to fulfill an amazing bucket list, is deserving of a programme on its own.

For forty years, Stephen has worked for the Catterpillar Company on the Oil Sands of Fort McMurray in Canada.

In his spare time, he has met Mohammed Ali, Marvin Haggler, Sugar Ray Robinson, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings. [read more …] “Stephen Nolan on WTRTM on C103 at 7pm Sunday”
