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.
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.)
The next 112 images recall how I was transported by digger (crossing the Boeing!), by Quad (on way to O’Riordan Family home) and by car (to Keale Bridge). We had to protect ourselves from the sun with spontaneous head gear as we had quite a long wait for the three boats at Keale Bridge. We extend sincere thanks to Eileen (who has won many an All-Ireland Athletics medal – most recently in Tullamore), Francis and Family for introducing us to this inspiring group and for the superb kindness they [read more …] “Blackwater Boating Adventure Began at Boeing on Monday”
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
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 [read more …] “Blackwater Swim 2012 – Wonderfully Successful”
The Boeing swim committee wish to thank each and every one who supported the 2012 swim especially our brave swimmers and supporters who came out and made today such a huge success, well done!
A special thank you to the LTV 2 team (Seanie, Willie and Brendan), to John Tarrant from the Corkman and Eilly Buckley and County Sound 103 FM who gave us great support with advertising and in getting information out to the public so quickly, many thanks.
We would like thank our generous sponsors who supported us again this year, The Bush Bar,Tarrant’s Bar and Super Valu Millstreet.
We the committee acknowledge and appreciate that the Boeing swim could not and would not be the success it is without the support, goodwill and hard work that is so generously given by all.
With the help of god we will all be there again next year. Health,wealth,peace and happiness to you and yours for 2012.
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.
