Remembering Captain Paddy McCarthy on 1920 Centenary

On this Sunday morning, 22nd November 2020 a special Committee assembled at Mill Lane, Millstreet to commemorate the late Captain Paddy McCarthy – a native of Meelin – who lost his life on this exact date one hundred years ago at Mill Lane.   A wreath was placed by Tim Murphy and a prayer was recited to honour the hero of the War of Independence.   Here we share a selection of images including a picture of the permanent plaque at the entrance of Mill Lane.   Tap on the images to enlarge.  A feature on the “Corkman” by John Tarrant will appear shortly. (S.R.)

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”

And…..

Mr. Sherif Sultan, a professor of vascular surgery based at the Galway Clinic, looks at some of the possibles, as to why a seemingly fit, strong and healthy man, who never smoked or drank,  suffered a fatal cardiac arrest at the age of 58.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

    Historian and Author, Jack Lane at Millstreet Museum in 1998.

    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.

    Mark Keane’s truly amazing winning goal for Cork on Sunday.
