The “Lost/Stolen Panniers” has been found and safely returned to it’s owner. Delighted that she can continue on her adventures with her bicycle and panniers in and around the Country.
She sometimes writes a blog when she goes cycling but wouldn’t normally write one when it was as short a trip as yesterday, but the kindness which was shown to her prompted her to highlight Millstreet with Cork’s Old Butter Road .
The community-funded Irish Community Rapid Response (ICRR) air ambulance service based in Rathcoole is at risk of being grounded within a week due to a funding shortfall. – “We’ve done approaching 250 missions for the National Ambulance Service. We’ve been busier than we initially anticipated,” pilot John Murray told C103’s Cork Today.
The air ambulance has flown 17 missions more each month than anticipated since its launch five months ago. “We might not save lives every day but we do several times a week,” Mr Murray said.
Millstreet Town Park Committee are delighted to share the publication below by IRD Duhallow officially announcing the signing of contracts for EU Leader funding of €55,455.41 towards the Playground Project.
Our shortfall is ever reducing and we have now crossed the €100,000 mark of the €120,000 required. Please continue to support the ongoing fundraising happening locally so that we can ensure the new Playground is in place for Summer 2020
