The wonderfully dedicated Millstreet Christmas Lights Committee are holding their annual Church Gate Collection this weekend. Generous support not only helps to maintain the uplifting festive town decorations but also allows the purchase of even more superbly impressive light features. It’s also truly encouraging that people from abroad such as Patrick W. O’Leary of Louisville, Kentucky post their generous and much appreciated donation from abroad to support such an important local activity. Click on the images below to enlarge. (S.R.)

We thank Presenter, John Greene, for advance information re this Sunday evening’s programme. (S.R.)
For well over half-a-century he’s been entertaining Cork audiences young and old. The stage on Cork’s opera House became his second home.
He was made a freeman of Cork City, and received an honorary MA Degree from UCC for his contribution to Cork’s Cultural life.
Most people don’t believe in fairytales, but he has good reason to, as he eventually got to marry Cinderella.
On ‘Where the road takes me’ this week, John Greene goes to the Lough in Cork City to speak to Billa O’Connell.
There’s songs and plenty of wit from the man who starred in many a Cork Opera House pantomime, and ‘Summer Revels’ which ran for two decades. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm Sunday on C103″
