What an exciting (and chilly) weekend it’s been when Daniel and Majella were accorded a royal welcome by Eily and the people of Millstreet and beyond (images of this we cannot share at the moment but at a later point permission will hopefully be granted)….when Millstreet Pipe Band performed inside and outside the Church…when Carriganima has its very own Snow Parade (!) with Fr. A. Wickham as its Grand Marshal (organizer Seán Murphy is very grateful for such wonderful support on such a cold day)…when Green Glens hosted a spectacular music event with well over 4,000 young people attending. Here we share a selection of images from this special weekend. We shall add lots more later. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.) [read more …] “Highlights of Wonderful St. Patrick’s Weekend 2018”

Well Done to the two Teachers from Rathcoole, Annmarie O’Riordan and Siobhan Buckley, who guided their students Maggie Moynihan from Cullen and the Instrumental Music Group from Borris in Ossory in Laois to overall victory on Saturday in the Scór Na nÓg All Ireland Finals.
Maggie celebrated her All Ireland Victory with her wonderful Singing Teacher Annmarie O’Riordan without whose support encouragement and work today’s victory wouldn’t have come about.
Many congrats to all those with local collections that were involved in the Scór na nÓg Finals in Sligo IT yesterday. Especially to Maggie Moynihan from Cullen who won the recitation, Aoife McSweeney of Carbery Rangers who won the Ballad Group and whose father Denis is from Tooreenbawn, Laois who won the Instrumental Music were trained by Siobhan Buckley of Rathcoole, to the Boherbue Quiz Team who finished third, and to Katie Lynch (Longford) in the Recitation, whose parents are from Ballydaly and Cullen

Fabulous line-up of Acts, including:
Friday night’s epic event ‘Millstreet’s Got Talent’ in the Wallis Arms Hotel was awaited in anticipation by many, and a big crowd enjoyed some of the wonderful talent there is in Millstreet, and a big Bualadh Bos to everyone who took part in the qualifying rounds as well as the finals:
the first Runner Up Millstreet’s Got Talant 2018, representing Millstreet Athletic Club was Edel O’Keeffe,and the second runner up Millstreet’s Got Talant 2018, also representing Millstreet Camogie club was Sarah Dennehy.
MC for the night was Noel Buckley who had to sit down after a long night (I really want to sing – but they wont let me !)
Many thanks to Geraldine Dennehy for the photos [read more …] “Millstreet’s Got Talent – the Winners”
In 1995 when the Cranberries were selling albums as fast as they could be manufactured, the Cranberries biggest show at home on the the No Need to Argue Tour was in Millstreet. They shook the Green Glens that night, before resting in Limerick for a few weeks ahead of two months touring in Europe and the USA.
Four years later, their next Irish gig was also in Millstreet, and it was another fabulous night in the Green Glens, as they played all the crowd favourites mixed with new songs. Endearing happy memories of two special nights in Millstreet, which vividly stick in the minds as for many it was their first big concert (see comments below).
So it is with sadness that we hear of the death of lead singer Dolores O’Riordan this evening. Our prayers and thoughts are with her family and friends.
