First on Thursday 26th June to say thank you to our customers who come from the schools across the road (children, parents, teachers), we are having our Annual School’s Out Party with treats and giveaway (ice-cream, cakes, tea/coffee) and free entertainment provided by Animal Road Show.
Then on Friday 4th July to raise money for Millstreet Hospital we are doing a 12 hour Cyclothon on a static bike in front of our shop. We are looking for volunteer cyclists, please, and can anyone willing to participate please contact the shop.
In support of the ‘Multiple Sclerosis Society’, Aidan, Gerry and Tony are currently taking on the challenge of cycling from Mizen Head to Malin Head, non-stop in 24 hours. They stopped in Millstreet this evening for some well deserved refreshments. Check out their progress on their Facebook Page
Says Conor: ‘‘FIFA is doing a great job taking the game away from the people.’’ Two years ago, Irish-born Conor had an epiphany. After finishing work as a business analyst at Westpac in Kent Street, Sydney, he needed to kill time before training with Balmain Old Boys, who play in the Canterbury league. He typed ‘‘round-the-world ticket’’ into Google and volunteering abroad came up. ‘‘Guys, I’m moving to Rio,’’ he told his teammates when he arrived at training that night.
Conor, 39, now partners with two organisations in Rio. IASESPE, with which he helps children aged between three and 14, and Carlao’s Football Project, which involves a hundred kids.
Officially the walk starts at 12noon, but this year many people prefer to start earlier so organsiers will be there with registration book at 11am. Starting point down Clara Rd. Many of our walkers have sponsorship cards but most prefer to make a donation in the box when they register.
The organisers would be delighted if people from the Millstreet locality joined us on this.
Update (4th June): Photos from the very successful walk can be seen here
The Galway Flying Club have a gallery of 38 photos of the event: before, during, and after.
The car run begins from the Gleneagle/Brehon Hotel, Killarney at 11am on Saturday, May 24th, and will set off on a route over Molls Gap and the Tim Healy Pass to a rest halt in Castletownbere, returning to Kenmare via Cods Head and Kilmackillogue for a well deserved meal in the Brook Lane Hotel.
This years charity is the Kerry/Cork Health Link Bus. Anne’s brothers, Declan, John and Martin and their friends in the Irish Escort Owners club organise the annual event along with Anne’s husband Billy.

Thanks to everyone who supported the table quiz which took place on Friday 31st January in The Wallis Arms. An incredible total of €1618 was raised to help pay for the six students who are going to Lourdes at Easter with the Irish Pilgrimage Trust.
A lot of people were thanked at the quiz but it is worth mentioning a few again. Firstly, John Tarrant for providing such a great set of questions – not too difficult, not too easy – and four sets of tie-breakers, all of which were needed! Secondly, Billy, Nigel and the staff at The Wallis Arms for making us all welcome and for being so accommodating. Thirdly, all those who sponsored raffle prizes. A list of all the shops and businesses who did so was read out on the night. Lastly, to everyone who came along to take part or help out. It was a really great effort!
The marvellous and praiseworthy event was also recorded by LTV2 Millstreet and will feature shortly on local television. Please enjoy the extra images we now share as you continue reading…
