Tonight’s programme is special as it recalls our recent visit to Maastricht in the Netherlands to attend the magnificent Open Air Concert of the renowned André Rieu. Our programme is only an Introduction to a much more comprehensive feature which I would hope to share when I return, God willing, to the main road again having had to diverge into a different road for some time to come. This wonderful package trip was organised by Pádraig O’Driscoll Travel in Macroom. The photograph below was recorded on the very day in July when we attended the Concert. It was great to have such close access to the actual stage where André and his Johann Strauss Orchestra performed the magnificent Concert. Tuesday 19th Sept. programme will be broadcast from 9:30 to 11:00 pm on www.corkmusicstation.com
I’m having Art Classes on Thursday the 21st of September in the Trade Union Hall Kanturk from 10:30 to 12:30 for beginners to advanced. The Monday class is all booked out. My number is 086-4058295 and my email is <email> for contact details. Mary O’Connor
Lots of uplifting response to last night’s “Radio Treasures” on Cork Music Station (Internet Radio) presented by S.R.. Eamonn Duggan reminded us during the programme of his truly superb feature relating to Gougane Barra in this week’s “Ireland’s Own”. One of our wonderfully loyal weekly Listeners – Patrick W. O’Leary who usually tunes into the Show from Louisville, Kentucky, USA was this week tuning in from the Wallis Arms Hotel in Millstreet as he is presently taking his annual holiday in Ireland – predominantly in Millstreet. Next Tuesday’s programme is extra special as it recalls our recent visit to Maastricht in the Netherlands to attend the magnificent Open Air Concert of the renowned André Rieu. This wonderful package trip was organised by Pádraig O’Driscoll Travel in Macroom. The photograph below was recorded on the very night in July when we attended the Concert. It was great to have such close access to the actual stage where André and his Johann Strauss Orchestra performed the magnificent Concert.

He is regularly referred to as ‘Nathan Carter’s younger brother’, but Jake is a different model of the Carter family. While proud to be Nathan’s sibling, this young man is determined to be different – so you won’t see any waistcoats or accordions on stage, and you won’t hear ‘Wagon Wheel’ or the Wild Rover.

Dia is Muire diobh go leir a chairde and welcome to my weekly Report.
Fine weather blessed all the outdoor events that were held here during the week.
When the last of the mega Horse carriers from all over the world pulled out of Millstreet at the weekend it marked the close of yet another long line of international equestrian events which were held at the Green Glens / Drishane Complex since early June. As always the International Millstreet Horse Trials which were held here during the week were another reason for us to be proud of our place and all that it has to offer. Competitors came from America, Canada and many other countries. Some ending their long journey by landing on the edge of town by Helicoptor.

Tremendous credit is due to Millstreet Vintage Club regarding its excellent coordination of such a very successful Vintage Day on Sunday, 27th Aug. 2017 in a wonderfully colourful Millstreet Town Park.

We thank Presenter, John Greene, for the following advance information regarding his upcoming radio feature on C103 at 7pm this Sunday. (S.R.)
Forget Catherine Cookson and your Mills and Boon novels, the greatest romance of all comes from the annals of Irish mythology. Tinged with tragedy and suspense, the story has a West Cork sequel.
This week on Where the road takes me, John Greene travels to Murragh (pronounced Mur-Rah) where two local groups have recently surveyed the local graveyard which goes back to the 18th century. The church here which is now in ruins goes back to the 12th century and the area itself to 200BC. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 at 7 This Evening”

If yourself or members of your family are spring cleaning please remember our Thrift Shop. We accept bric-a-brac, children’s clothes, buggies, toys, and curtains etc., any clothes that are in good condition. All proceeds from the shop go towards the Day-Care Centre.
We also accept clothes not fit for resale e.g. old curtains and blankets, quilt covers, towels etc. We sell them for recycling to the National Council for the Blind. Not alone does this create an income for the Council for the Blind but we put the money we get from them into our Social Fund – which helps pay for tutors and volunteers (music, exercise classes, red cross etc).
Old clothes can be handed into the Thrift Shop or the Millstreet Day Care Centre.
Any donations or unwanted china especially (cups and saucers) would be greatly appreciated.
We try to provide as much entertainment as possible during the day – birthday parties, sing-along, exercises, games etc., but funding is always a problem.
Thank you all for your continuing support and please encourage your neighbours or friends to come and join us.
We thank Mary Feeley for this superb insight into support for the Centre. We now share a selection of images recorded at the recent reopening of Millstreet Day Care Centre following most impressive renovations.
Thanks to two very kind €20.00 donations presented since our recent Church gate collection we’re been able to purchase at Herlihy’s Centra a further two containers to protect our weekly “Revolution” Paper/Poster Pack. By November 2017 we shall have all copies of the full 100 in the series. We thank the generous Donors.
Shane Browne has made contact with us requesting that he would appreciate it very much if anyone may have a “Hill 16” ticket to sell for the All-Ireland Hurling Final in Croke Park on Sunday, 3rd Sept. 2017 at which his favourite Waterford Team will be playing.
