Millstreet “Darkness into Light” Walk Likely to Become Annual Event

Judging by the superbly uplifting response to the recent “Darkness into Light” 5K Walk which took place in Millstreet on Saturday, 8th May 2021 at 4.15 a.m. and was organised locally by the Munster Fire and Safety Team based in Main Street, Millstreet – it is felt that the Millstreet Walk for Pieta House will most likely become an annual event in conjunction with the many similar events which take place annually on a nationwide and international basis.   The 2021 Millstreet Walk began in Killarney Road and proceeded through the town to the Drishane Castle entrance gate and then returning to Main Street where Munster Fire and Safety provided much appreciated refreshments.  COVID-19 Safety precautions were observed.  Participants contributed generously to the praiseworthy fund. Here we share some 64 images from the inspiring event.   Tap on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)

While the “Darkness into Light” Walk  in Millstreet continued a further group climbed to the summit of Clara Mountain at the same time. Here we view Dawn Rising on Clara thanks to the recording of Joe Fitzgerald.

Cork Man Gets Top Dublin Young Fine Gael Job

Millstreet’s Gary O’Donovan has been elected as the Dublin Regional Organiser of Young Fine Gael, following YFG’s recent National Conference.

We thank Gary’s Family for sharing this wonderfully uplifting news. Sincere congratulations to Gary and every success for the future. Tap on the image to enlarge. (S.R.)

The former Millstreet Community School student is currently reading Law and History at Dublin City University. He has been previously involved in many campaigns for the party at various levels in both YFG and the senior party.

His move to national politics began at the Young Fine Gael National Conference which took place for the first time ever online and was attended by almost 500 young people across Ireland.

Gary has spent the last 18 months building up the DCU Young Fine Gael Branch, which was recipient of YFG Dublin Branch of the Year 2020 and has won awards from the University’s Clubs and Societies. The Branch has also seen its numbers significantly rise and he successfully oversaw the planning of a trip to Brussels to enhance YFG’s relations with its sister party in the Youth European People’s Party.

Gary (20) said he hopes to make an impact on the national youth political stage after being given such a mandate to serve and make a difference.  “As Dublin Regional Organiser, I am responsible for the day-to-day management of the organisation in the Region and I will have a massive opportunity to make YFG’s presence in the Capital ever stronger. I am bursting with ambition on making sure young people feel Young Fine Gael best represents their interests and that it is an organisation in which they are then able to call their political home”.

 Where The Road Takes Me

Having spent forty years as the frontline face of flagship TV on BBC and ITV, Denis Tuohy came to Castletownbere for a number of years and an opportunity to tackle his autobiography.

Armed with a plentiful supply of conversational subjects, he joins John Greene this Sunday evening on ‘Where the road takes me’, in the first of a two part programme.

Tuohy had overseen eight General Elections in the UK and in her memoirs, the late Margaret Thatcher referred to her interview with him in 1979, as the most hostile of that campaign.

There was also a day spent in the company of the infamous Charles Manson Family, after locating them in hiding in a remote area of California.  As the mood darkened considerably, Tuohy and his camera crew were lucky to leave alive. (One of his interviewees was later jailed for life for the attempted murder of  American President Gerald Ford))

He was also thrown off a Pirate Whaling ship in Portugal for asking the wrong questions.

And although his acting career didn’t reach the dizzy heights of his broadcasting career, Denis Tuohy still managed parts in Fair City and Killinaskully. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″
