Day 2 Sunday, the stages are 3 special stages ran twice service on Sunday is in Milltown and the rally will finish with one final stage, before the winners are announced at the finish ramp at the Gleneagle Hotel.
Not too many locals competing in the rally this year, probably because of the excessive entry price of €850. Only three sort of locals in the race:
#53 Brendan Dennehy (‘S’ signs)
#9 Alan Ring (munster joinery)
#52 Stephen Linehan (bio-tech)
Timetables and maps are available in local shops along and near the routefor €10. The closest to Millstreet are: Guerins Ballydaly, Dennehy’s Shop, Coleman’s, Anglands (Dromagh). Service in Millstreet is due to start at 12:30pm Saturday, and will probably last 3+ hours, from the first in to the last out.

Don’t forget that the Millstreet edition of “Round the Fireside” is on Tonight (Monday) 9:50pm!
A special greeting to Pat & Olive Monaghan in Las Vegas, U.S.A. who are very loyal and regular visitors to www.millstreet.ie. Pat telephoned me last night indicating that he had also listened to C103’s “Round the Fireside” on Monday night which featured many Millstreet people and that he had thoroughly enjoyed it. Incidentally, a second programme with the same Millstreet guests airs on next Monday, 19th April at 9.50 p.m. (Irish time). Seán Radley for www.millstreet.ie
You can’t listen to old C103FM programmes at the moment but you can listen to C103FM live. So if you want to hear the programme, tune in at 21:50 GMT.

Easter Sunday 2010 in Millstreet was a very busy day indeed. With Easter Mass, a Collenction for the Irish Lifeboat Association, the Annual Easter Parade led by Millstreet Pipe Band, the Proclamation read by Nóirín Ní Ealaithe, the Tricolour raised by Con Foley, the wreath laid by Tadhg Crowley, the oration given by Tom Meaney and Jerry Lehane as Master of Ceremonies. (Lots of photos below by Sean Radley)
Also on Easter Sunday was the Vintage Family Fun Day at Green Glens, and there are loads of photos from this which will appear over the next few days. [read more …] “Easter Sunday 2010”

The Fine Gael Cork North West Constituency AGM takes place in Millstreet this evening. Fine Gael Education Spokesman, Brian Hayes TD will deliver a speech on why there needs to be a new deal between teachers and the Government.
If I had a fiver for everyone who told me that the Department of Education HQ was a downtown office of the Irish teachers’ unions, I would be a very wealthy man. The common perception is that the unions simply click their fingers in Marlborough Street and get everything they want.
It is true that we have seen some dreadful deals down the years where educational outcomes were not the priority. But can it be said after the effective reduction of between 15% to 19% of teachers take home pay over a twelve month period that the teacher unions still dominate the agenda? Any objective observer would have to say that this is not the case.
Millstreet will come to a standstill on Sunday for its Annual Spring Horse Fair. Despite the passage of time with modern trends surfacing, the hosting has lost none of its crowd pulling appeal for patrons young and old drawn from all over the province.
Millstreet Horse Fair maintains its glamour as a social occasion and an outlet to renew acquaintances with friends. Crowds and attractions have steadily risen over recent years with reservations expressed by gardaí and the local authority to growing difficulties.
A number of restrictions will again be put in place with the aim of providing safety measures that will alleviate potential accidents and reduce traffic chaos that had become a growing hinderance not only on fair day but also on the previous days.
Hi, just want to let the people of Millstreet know that Eurovision winner 1993, Niamh Kavanagh has made it to the last 5 in the Eurosong qualifiers this year.

Saturday, Febrary 6th will see ten of the most original and innovative thinkers in Ireland gather in Ballyvourney, Co. Cork, to give a day of talks on the ground-breaking projects they are working on. The name of the conference is “Imbolc”, and perhaps the most innovative facet of the whole event is that it is taking place entirely through the medium of the Irish language. It is being run on a non-profit basis, and all the speakers and organisers are volunteering their time for the event.
Tractor and machinery dealerships will attend, with the organisers saying that the show will be an ideal opportunity for farmers and contractors to view the latest innovations in the agricultural and associated industries in one place.
PREPARATIONS are now well under way for the third annual Spring Farm Machinery Show which will take place at the Green Glens Arena in Millstreet on the afternoons and evenings of 12, 13 and 14 of January 2010.
This exciting and innovative event will feature all the leading tractor and machinery dealerships in the area, numerous new exhibitors have booked with many previous companies requesting additional space.
The Spring Farm Machinery Show takes place at a time of year when farmers and contractors are looking forward to the season ahead and are keen to embrace new technology and ideas, our aim is to afford them this opportunity by bringing together a wide variety of exhibitors all in one venue in the comfort of heated indoor halls.
