SEASON OF ADVENT

This weekend we begin the season of Advent which is a time of waiting for the great event – the coming of Christ.  Pope Francis has described the Advent season as a time of conversion to make space in one’s heart for Christ to come and fill it with joy. Vigilance, he continued, means “paying attention to our neighbor in difficulty and allowing their need to draw us in, without waiting for him or her to ask us for help.”  May we continue to be vigilant to the needs of our family members, our neighbours and our community as we journey through these challenging times.

Thought for the week ahead

Christianity is not merely belief.

It is the practice of that belief by active charity. (Frank Duff)Saturday 21st November celebrates the feast day for the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and celebrates when Mary was asked to be the mother of the Jesus. Her response, “Let it be done to me,” was a great act of faith as she placed her whole self at the service of God.

This weekend we say a special prayer for mothers everywhere and ask the Blessed Virgin Mary to protect them and guide them in these challenging times.

As a mark of respect to the sisters of the Presentation Order a wreath was laid in the Presentation Cemetery by the Girls National School and the Community School in recognition of the service the sisters have given to our Parish. [read more …] “Millstreet Parish Newsletter 22nd November 2020”

    Geraldine Goggin with one of the two hugely important Millstreet Posters which she has kindly presented to Millstreet Museum in memory of the late Michael and Matthew Murphy.
    We believe the year of this magnificent Poster is either 1960 or 1965. Perhaps someone who attended the historic occasion at the “Star” Ballroom might confirm the correct year.
    A wonderful “West End Cinema” Poster from 1973 which was the year that the Cinema closed. For years we were hoping to acquire for Millstreet Museum one of these precious Posters. Earlier Posters were narrower. If anyone finds such Posters we would be so very glad to make a copy of such Posters for archival purposes.   Many thanks to Geraldine Goggin for this great Poster.

Between 1959 and 1979 the three Williamson brothers along with Victor Sullivan, plied their trade as the Bluebell Quartet around the dance-halls of Cork and Kerry mainly.  Sadly, both Eddie and Harry Williamson are since deceased. 

This week on Where the road takes me, Victor Sullivan and Willy Williamson join John Greene on a whirlwind virtual tour of their favourite venues and recall the stories associated with them. 

Being attacked by a mad cat, saving the occupants of a house and the house itself from a fire, and the night everybody seemed to be dancing without their clothes on, are stories up for discussion.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

“Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 25th Oct. 2020 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

In 1946, a nine year old boy on holidays on his Grandmother’s farm on the Beara peninsula, unearths a revolver from the ground while driving a horse-drawn harrow.  Even at such a young age, Victor Sullivan is aware that his find is part of a secret that adults refuse to speak about and children should not concern themselves with.

Seventy five years earlier, in 1871, nine year old Johnnie Gill is involved in a farm accident that leaves him unable to walk, stand or sit for the remainder of his life.  Deemed a cripple, he is shut away in an upstairs  tiny chamber to prevent him from bringing shame on the family.

On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, Victor Sullivan joins John Greene to talk about the amazing story of Johnnie Gill – his Grand-Uncle.  It’s a story of how one brave man overcame his disability and challenged the extreme social prejudices of two centuries.

On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene heads for the kitchen to meet TV Chef, author and Co-founder of Ballymaloe Cookery school Rory o’Connell.   

Slow roast shoulder of lamb, proper scrambled eggs and the health benefits of bone broth are up for discussion.

A FEW WORDS OF ENCOURAGMENT

This weekend we are once again facing a time of uncertainty as a community, Parish and country.  We are experiencing such a range of emotions and everyone is fearful of this virus coming into our lives and homes and the affect it would have on our loved ones and on ourselves. During the month of October let us pray to Our Lady for the strength and courage we need and let the words of Pope Francis be a daily reminder of how much we have to offer those who may need it.

We chat about about Blessed Carlo Acutis who was beatified in Assisi, Italy on Saturday….and we hear about the power of one “Hail Mary”.

A new dimension to our weekly “Lunchtime Favourites” Show is being introduced this Sunday.   It all emerges from a suggestion we received from Millstreet Active Retirement Association:  It is very creatively suggested that we introduce the new idea in the following manner:  “A very special welcome today to all our Friends in Millstreet Active Retirement Association who because of the present Covid restrictions in place cannot resume the weekly dancing and yoga in the chair classes we all enjoyed so much.
So, my dear friends, like Din Joe in The Good Old Days, I invite you all to Take The Floor and dance, march and exercise to your heart’s content over the next hour of our weekly “Lunchtime Favourites”.
Let’s start the ball rolling with a selection of lively marches. Here we go….”  And I can promise you a wide variety of wonderfully rhythmic tunes – where one will wish to dance, waltz and relax.

Some 40 years ago the possibility of having a public Swimming Pool in Millstreet was seriously explored. This was the dedicated Committee formed to attempt bringing it to reality.

It is often said that every cloud has a silver lining! And this was thus in Millstreet during the week.

Millstreet Pictorial Updates – 9th October 2020

We share a selection of images reflecting recent updates in the Millstreet area.   Yesterday we featured a package delivered to Millstreet Museum.   Before we could reveal its content we had to make the local Gardaí aware of its content and to seek permission to share images of the historic item.   We can now reveal what we received from a very kind anonymous Donor who sent the following note:
