Millstreet Calendar 2020 – Just a Few Need Recall

In a small few cases of the recently launched Millstreet Calendar 2020 a printing error has been discovered in that the months of February and November are missing and there is an advertisement for some business in another part of Ireland.   If you discover that you have bought one of these incorrectly printed Calendars please contact Millstreet Community Council and a replacement will be provided.   Apologies regarding this but it only relates to a very small number of the popular Calendar.  (S.R.)

Dan, Mary, Margaret and Noel encourage everyone to support the Millstreet Calendar 2020 Project. Tap on the image to enlarge. (S.R.)

We thank Presenter, John Greene for information about this evening’s programme 7 to 8pm on C103.  (S.R.)

In this week’s edition of Where the road takes me, John Greene pays a visit to a small grocery shop in Bandon, where four generations have withstood fire and floods, World War2, a recession, changes in social habits and the challenge of Multi Nationals.

We meet the West Cork based press photographer who took the iconic photograph of an eighteen year old lady Diana Spencer in the see-through dress.

And on a lighter note from the archives…….we get to impart some correct information on a new signing at Old Trafford to a mis-informed former legend of the club. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 This Sunday Evening”

  Dermot, Lilly, Caroline & Steven Murphy

We would like to say how grateful we are to our loving families, good friends, amazing neighbours, and our caring and such a generous community for all your support during our traumatic and devastating day-to-day loss we have to endure.

We would like to thank the following:

 Denise Symth who ran the Dublin City Marathon and raised an amazing €3,075.00.

Munster Fire& Safety for printing Viv on the Temple Street T-shirts.

Millstreet Community School, Cloghoula NS, Geraldine Davis (Cork mini marathon) and to each and every member of the Millstreet  community who kindly donated money. We would also like to thank Sgt. Paul Lynch from the Millstreet Garda Station and all those that helped with traffic flow during Vivienne’s funeral service.

Finally but not least we have to say how amazed but not surprised we are of a very special young lady  Sophia, so sweet and kind  who donated her Confirmation money to Temple Street Hospital to help other  children like her BFF (Best Friend Forever) Viv.

Sophia’s Special Certificate of Appreciation …. Sophia was Vivienne’s BFF – Best Friend Forever.

In these few months since her passing Vivienne’s honour has raised a total of €7,416.75  for Temple Street Children’s Hospital for the ICU Department.

No matter how young she was she made a massive impact on us as a family not to mention everybody else and is still making that impact.                                         

Viv.……Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place.

The workshops will be of interest to heritage, community and Tidy Town groups, commemoration groups throughout County Cork. Starting at 10am, each daily workshop will consist of illustrated presentations and talks in the morning and afternoon presentation of case studies by experienced professional specialists. The training workshops will be completed by 4.30pm. · The workshops as stated will be held at the following locations on the following dates: Hibernian Hotel, Mallow (Monday 2nd December 2019); Walter Raleigh Hotel, Youghal (Tuesday 3rd December 2019) and O’Donovan’s Hotel, Clonakilty (Wednesday 4th December 2019).  It would be good if an individual or two from the Tidy Towns would attend.  I, and I believe Hannah Kelleher, will attend the workshop at Clonakilty.

Dog Hanging Around West End

This young male dog has been hanging around Clara Road and West End for a week or so. He has been seen in the presbytery, the Convent School, and wanders around but no collar. He’s not afraid of kids, and ran to the girls coming out of school today, but he has no road sense as was in front of the school cars. If he’s yours, you know where he is.  [read more …] “Dog Hanging Around West End”

Castlemagner Players Present ‘Mother Knows Best’

This year Castlemagner Players are staging “Mother Knows Best” by Jimmy Keary. This 3 act play centres around Nick Cassidy who, while doing a painting job in the McDermott’s house, renews a friendship with their youngest daughter Suzy. The two begin dating, much to the disapproval of Suzy’s mother, Tess, who is hoping to make a match for her daughter with stuffy financial consultant, Adrian Bird. Tess resolves to break up the young couple by whatever means she can. However, such is Tess’ preoccupation with her daughter’s love-life, she fails to notice that her own husband, Harry is falling under the spell of her man-hungry golfing partner, Dulcie Cotter. Matters come to a head when Nick’s workmate, Joe Galligan breaks into McDermott’s, looking for money to pay off his gambling debts. During the theft, Tess’s plotting is exposed and Harry comes to a fateful decision.
The play is again directed by Neil Moylan and the final performances will be staged in Castlemagner Community Centre on Friday 29th, Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December at 8pm nightly, admission €10.

We thank Kathleen Moylan for this notice and we wish every success.  (S.R.)
