LTV2 Millstreet Programme 223 (Number 3 0f 2013/2014 Season)


Programme 223 which was broadcast last night Thursday 28 November is now online. You can now watch our Third Programme of the New Season right here at millstreet.ie or on the LTV2 Facebook Page and… this Programme will be repeated next Sunday Evening December 1 at 8.00pm
To receive reception one needs to retune analogue settings (available in menu “settings”). When scanning is complete one will now have the new channel – either UHF Channel 30 or UHF Channel 35 (or both in certain areas of Millstreet). All this depends on how strong the signal is in any given area. The UHF Channel 30 signal comes from the Carriganima direction whereas the UHF Channel 35 signal comes from the western side of Millstreet Town. This is now saved and is presently transmitting the EWTN (Religious) Channel.

Blackwater Trip for Six Boatmen Ends Successfully in Youghal on Thursday Afternoon

Many thanks to Eileen O’Riordan of Dromsicane for informing us that the six courageous boatmen who began their adventure at the Boeing on the River Blackwater on Monday morning ended their enjoyable but challenging trip successfully as they arrived in Youghal early on Thursday afternoon (22nd August 2013).  They had a great adventure but it was hard work the first day with the water so low.   The six men enjoyed our website feature regarding their very interesting adventure.     (S.R.)

Blackwater Boating Adventure Began at Boeing on Monday

Eileen O'Riordan of Dromsicane, Millstreet (3rd from left) kindly alerted us to the boating adventure which was to be undertaken by six enthusiastic and marvellously fit men as they prepared to set off for Youghal this Monday morning from the Boeing Crossing at Dromsicane/Dooneen.  It is hoped to arrive in Youghal on Wednesday.  The happy group camped in the exquisite setting of Dromsicane and were provided with a wonderful Irish breakfast by Eileen, Francis and Family before the start of the adventure.   (S.R.)

The Boeing’s New Year’s Oldest Swimmer

At the Boeing new year swim he is always first in
Mick Collins the fellow with anti freeze skin
For one in his late fifties or early sixties not much younger than me
He is quite a tough nut would you not agree

Age is a relative thing the brave Mick does not feel old
Like the Arctic bear he must be immune to cold
One can say in him there is much to admire
To greater things far younger than him he inspire

Blackwater Swim 2012 – Wonderfully Successful

The superbly energetic and splendidly courageous participants pictured this noontime today, 8th January (birthday of Elvis...and of quite a few local people!) at the Boeing following their Swim in the River Blackwater on behalf of the Cork North West Branch of MS.

Having had to be deferred from last Sunday due to significantly high water level at the River Blackwater the now annual Swim at the Boeing took place at 12.30 p.m. .    And what a tremendously cheerful and spirited occasion it was covered by John Tarrant for the Press and by William, Ita and Brendan for LTV2 Millstreet (likely to be transmitted this week on LTV2).   The Organisers must certainly take a bow not only for the overall coordination of the event but for continue reading the full article “Blackwater Swim 2012 – Wonderfully Successful”

New Years Day swim at the Boeing

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011

All  showed  the real spirit of the community  and Christmas when our local people, young and not so old ventured into the Blackwater on New years day to raise awareness and money for the Alzheimers Society North Cork Branch.

This is our third New Years swim and we had two parts to the swim this year. Some swimmers jumped in on New Years Eve as they had a wedding to go to. Thanks lads.

Thanks to all the supporters that cheered us on. A very relaxed and enjoyable time sipping hot punch or lemonade was had by all after the swim.

The Alzheimers Society here in North Cork (Mallow Base) offers Home Care, respite care as well as a Day Care to families in need of this specialist care.

St Mary Day Care Centre in Mallow, is a dementia – specific home from home day unit for people with Alziheimers and time for families to do other  things. The environment were people with dementia feel comfortable and are stimulated.

THANKS  to all the sponsers and for all whom supported the swimmers on the day.

Thanks to Joe, from  our local Supervalue  for sponsoring the hot punch and lemonade.

Thanks to The Bridge Bar and the Bush Bar for sponsoring the Tee- shirts that were proudly worn by the swimmers on completing their task.

Thanks to Davy Tarrant and Timmy for the use of the microphone system.

All Moneys raised will stay local
