At least two very colourful Rainbows appeared over Millstreet on this Tuesday, 15th January 2020 – the Feast of St. Ita. Celebrated in Killeedy, Co. Limerick where a beautiful Church Window (in Ashford in the Parish of Killeedy) depicting the renowned Saint may be seen – there is also a close link with St. Ita in Millstreet and is especially associated with Kilmeedy and Tubrid….which is oftentimes referred to as the Holy Well of Ita where in a bygone age people were baptised in the waters of Tubrid. The two Rainbows serve as a reminder of St. Ita’s links to Millstreet. Our images were photographed in West End and Mount Leader this Tuesday morning. Tap on the pictures to enlarge.(S.R.)

The people of Carriganima extend a céad míle fáilte to everybody to join with them in commemorating the centenary of An tAthair Peadar Ó Laoghaire. The commemoration will take place over two days: Friday, March 20 and Saturday, March 21. The renowned priest, scholar and author was born in the townland of Liscarrigane, in the parish of Clondrohid & Carriganima, and he spent his formative years here. The locality had a profound impact on his work. An tAthair Peadar was a strong advocate of vernacular Irish – the language of the people. His most beloved works includeSéadna and Mo Scéal Féin. These stories, among other works, are much loved by students and scholars of Irish to this day. Following his clerical formation in St Patrick’s College, Maynooth, An tAthair Peadar, served as a priest in the Diocese of Cloyne, including in Macroom. He died in Castlelyons in 1922, and he is buried there. An tAthair Peadar is widely regarded as one of the founders of modern Irish literature.

The panniers shown on the bike in this photo were left behind this afternoon, Sunday 12th Jan at 15.30, outside McCarthy’s Bar. When we went back to look for them they were gone. They haven’t been handed in to the Garda Station or local pubs or hotel.
Maybe someone took it up to keep it safe. Let’s hope! I’ve lots of bits and pieces in it for cycling that are really no use to anyone except myself -helmet, gloves etc. The panniers are quite new also and I really like them
The panniers have been found and safely returned to it’s owner.
