Hope you have fun and we look forward to seeing your designs!
Herlihy’s Centra in the West End, and the Millstreet Primary Schools Parents Assn would like to thank the children from the Primary Schools for their Art work. There is plenty of room for more Art, so its not too late to hand it in and it is definitely worth a visit as the pictures below don’t do the art justice.
Also the Parents Assn would like to remind everyone that the Go Fund Me page is still going and thank everyone who has given money so far.
Millstreet Primary Schools’ Parents’ Association have been asked by Herlihy Centra Millstreet, to invite the children from the Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S. to send in their Art in the form of a A4 painting/colouring picture in the theme of ‘What we love’ with the view of displaying it in the shop and in the windows.
Herlihy’s Centra have been very impressed with the art work that has been displayed in town over the years and would love to exhibit the Primary Schools art, the exhibition ‘What we love’ will open very soon, so please start getting the pictures into Herlihy Centra in the West End ASAP.
For more information go to the Millstreet Primary Schools Parents Assn Facebook page.
Millstreet Parents Association would like to wish everyone a Happy St Patrick’s Day.
What does St Patrick’s Day mean to you? Millstreet Parents Assn has asked the Primary School children that very question.
To some of us it can mean going to St Patrick’s Church for mass, meeting friends and listening to the wonderful music. It maybe visiting family and going to the St Patrick’s Day Parade.
This year, sadly, we wont be able to do any Parades or go to Mass together, so instead of a Parade etc this year The Millstreet Parents Assn has invited the children from the Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S. to send in maybe a Photograph or Video of up to 20 seconds of who they want to wish Happy St Patrick’s day to (maybe someone out of the area or abroad they haven’t seen in a long time, or a relation they miss), perhaps play some music, or even have their own mini parade, even if they want to do a picture or Art, a poem, but the idea is for the children to say what St Patrick’s Day means to them.
The Parents Assn need all Photo’s/video’s and art pieces sent in by Friday 12th March 7pm and they will put them together for viewing in our own Primary Schools St Patrick’s virtual Parade on the 17th March. By sending it in, it is accepted consent has been given to show the clips/art on the Facebook page of The Millstreet Parents Assn and other social media platforms, this way any wishes you want sending to people will be able to seen.
But this will only work if the children take part, so let prove that St Patrick’s Day is still special to everyone.
Millstreet Parents Association would like to thank all the talented children who sent in entries from both the Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S. The children sent in a lot of fantastic pictures of how they like to have their Pancakes, lots of wonderful designs and colours, I am told it made the decision of who the winner was such a hard job. Here are the pictures, some great talent here I think you’ll agree.

Millstreet Parents Association sadly couldn’t put on the annual ‘Halloween Disco’ this year, so recently over half term they held a Netflix party where children from the Presentation N.S. & Scoil Mhuire Boy’s N.S. watched a film together from the safety of their own homes, also they held a couple of competition’s, firstly a colouring competition and then a fancy dress competition. Below are some of the winners. Thank you to everyone who entered, it was really hard picking the winners and we wish we could have shared all the entries as they were wonderful and scary. Also thank you to both schools and everyone who helped.
It’s unlikely that Castleisland has ever had a serious potter of its own.
One who made pots and plates and jugs and mugs for the people of the locality.
The nearest we’ve ever had were ‘earthenware merchants’ Thomas Kearney and John Riordan both on Main Street in the late 1880s.
They may well have been potters themselves but they were, most likely, merchants for the merchandise of others.
What’s in a name ? Potters are often referred to nowadays as ceramicists and a practitioner of that class of craft and talent launched her own studio / shop at No. 94 Main Street, Castleisland on Monday morning, August 10th 2020 at 10am.
After her first week of trading in the new shop, Delia is delighted with the warmth of the welcome she got from fellow and neighbouring business people in the town.
She’s also taken aback with the level of business she’s been doing in terms of straight sales from stock and from orders received during the week.

Hello all, I’m currently thinking about setting up a craft group that would meet weekly in Millstreet to exchange ideas and techniques and just generally meet like minded people for a couple of hours, a cuppa and do a bit of crafting. I would love to hear from sewers, Quilters, patchworkers, knitter, crossstichers, card makers, jewelry makers and any other crafters who would like to get together. Please respond with any thoughts or ideas. Thanks, Clare.

Arriving Into View is an art project that invited teenagers living in direct provision centres in Cork City and County to work with the Glucksman and practicing artists over a six week period in Autumn 2017.
Throughout the sessions participants engaged in projects that investigated ideas of personal journey. Teenagers explored the processes and techniques involved in communicating stories and messages to large audiences while working with different mediums and artists.
The project invited 15 teenagers (ages 13-17 years) from direct provision centres in Kinsale Road, Glounthaune, Clonakilty and Drishane Castle to work with practicing artists. This was an opportunity for these teenagers to interact with artistic ideas and mediums and to discover their own creative and imaginative capabilities away from their prohibitive surroundings.
The culmination of the project was last Friday’s tonight’s public display of a large scale mural created by the group in Fitzgerald’s Park as park of Culture Night. It will remain on display until October 8th. [read more …] “Arriving Into View”
