A long time ago and from here far away
In Johnny Hickey’s grove in Inchaleigh children’s games we did play
As primary school-goers long before our lives prime
This is going back the years more than six decades in time
Only memories of them with me now do stay
The friends of my childhood where are they today?
Since we all had to follow our lives destiny
Though i often do wonder where today they might be

We thank Radio Presenter, John Greene, for advance information on this Sunday’s C103’s “Where the Road Takes Me” (9th April 2017):
In the first of a two part programme, ‘Where the road takes me’ visits Mallow and Doneraile this week, to look at the life of a remarkable author and priest. Patrick Augustine Sheehan was born in Mallow in 1852 and was taken into care after both his parents and most of his siblings died from consumption.
Few would have foreseen this shy, timid and fair haired young boy later becoming a champion of his people and a world renowned author. In fact by the end of the nineteenth century no other writer in Ireland enjoyed such a worldwide reputation as he did. … continue reading the full article “Canon Sheehan Feature on “Where the Road Takes Me” Sunday at 7pm”

Recently Danielle O’Riordan from Dromsicane, Millstreet competed in Nenagh at the Munster Juveniles Indoors Competition . She came a brilliant second in the Under 12 Girls Shot Putt. This was her first time competing in the Shot Putt and to bring home a Silver Munster Medal was a fantastic achievement . She travelled to Athlone yesterday to compete in the All-Ireland where Danielle is now rated amongst the top eleven in Ireland. Sincere congratulations on such a magnificent achievement and for being such a superb Sporting Ambassador for Millstreet at a hugely prestigious All-Ireland event in the heart of Ireland – Athlone. Danielle’s Mum – Eileen, of course, has won a hugely impressive amount of All-Ireland Sporting Awards over the years. (S.R.)
