Marie Kelleher got special mention on Ireland’s Got Mór Talent last evening where she sang Hopelessly Devoted to You (Grease, 1978) for the judges. As she says herself, she’s better at the singing than the talking, and a mighty performance too. Marie and her sister Breeda make up the Diamond Sisters and we’ve known for years how good they are. Watch her performance on Ireland’s Got Mór Talent on the Virgin Media Player (from 18:49 to 20:13) (here)

John Martyn was one of the acts that played at the Millstreet Music Fair in 1996:
As anyone familiar with his story will attest, Martyn was, and is, not only one of the finest British singer-songwriter/guitarists of the last 30 years but is also known to be a renowned consumer of fine liquor. Indeed, the last time yours truly set eyes upon him, he was propping up the bar at the Millstreet Music Fair, a rapidly-emptying bottle of Jack Daniels in his hand. Needless to say, this comes as a bit of a revelation to him! “I can’t say I remember that one too clearly,” he laughs, down the phone line from somewhere in the north of England. “It was a good gig, though, I do remember that much.” – Hot Press (2009)

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the War of Independence. Congratulations to the Presentation National School who marked the anniversary with a wonderful rendition of the Boys of the County Cork:
While it was not clear in the beginning of 1919 that the Dáil ever intended to gain independence by military means, and war was not explicitly threatened in Sinn Féin’s 1918 manifesto, an incident occurred on 21 January 1919, the same day as the First Dáil convened. The Soloheadbeg Ambush, in County Tipperary, was led by Seán Treacy, Séamus Robinson, Seán Hogan and Dan Breen acting on their own initiative. The IRA attacked and shot two RIC officers, Constables James McDonnell and Patrick O’Connell, who were escorting explosives. Breen later recalled:
…we took the action deliberately, having thought over the matter and talked it over between us. Treacy had stated to me that the only way of starting a war was to kill someone, and we wanted to start a war, so we intended to kill some of the police whom we looked upon as the foremost and most important branch of the enemy forces. The only regret that we had following the ambush was that there were only two policemen in it, instead of the six we had expected.
This is widely regarded as the beginning of the War of Independence. [read more …] “Boys of the County Cork”
Womens Little Christmas Night at The Pub in Carriganima this Sat January 5th, Christmas Draw with some great Prizes to be Won on the Night with Music by Peter Lane. All Welcome.
Over the Christmas, some of the members of the Millstreet Comhaltas Branch visited Millstreet Hospital. Below is a short clip of what happened:
“Here is a song we have liked for a long time and decided to record it. The song is called Aidan, Written by Rathcoole native Jeremiah O’Keeffe about his young nephew. Jeremiah is the writer of many fine songs . In this song he encourages children to enjoy childhood and not be in too much of a hurry to grow up. Although written a couple of decades ago the song lyrics are very relevant in today’s fast moving world.
Aidan was arranged and produced by Noel O’Leary from Millstreet a well known Musician and Producer.WishKelting everybody a very Happy Christmas and Peaceful New Year.” – The Kelts
