Update on Celtic and Clara Toy Dolls

When speaking with Tommy Burke at Supervalu today I discovered that the Toy Factory at Pound Hill (Hegarty Street) was known as Celtic Toys 1965 – 1977.   When Tommy and his dedicated Staff took over it became known as Clara Toys (& Clothing Co.) 1978 – 2004.   We had lots of interest in our recent Bob Emprimo Doll feature.   Many thanks to Tommy for such an interesting update.    (S.R.)

Last seen outside Centra, West End around 8am this Sunday morning.

Any sightings please call 087 9379269.

The Owner of the Golden Labrador wishes to express sincere thanks to All who very kindly helped to find the missing family pet.   It happens that the dog met a number of people from the Pony Show this morning who were shopping at Centra.   He/she decided to follow them to the Show at Green Glens.   He/she found the jumps most interesting and was noted by the many spectators who were quite charmed by the dog.   Luckily, Emma Hickey who was working in the Show Office saw our above alert on the website and immediately made contact with the Owner.   Well done, Emma.   Great that the story has a happy ending…The Lost/Found Prayer also said may have helped as well!  (S.R.)

1893 Ceremonial Trowel

1893 Ceremonial Trowel from the start of work on Millstreet Boys School - from Cannon Griffin to Miss Madeline McCarthy O'LearyA fascinating item from Millstreet’s history has appeared on eBay this week, courtesy of a high quality antique dealer in England – Pushkin Antiques. It’s a ceremonial trowel presented to Miss Madeline McCarthy O’Leary by Cannon Griffin, on the occasion of laying the foundation stone at the Male School in 1893.

The school in question was located across from the Catholic Presbtry on the Clara Road.

The trowel is 925 standard silver purity. Due to it’s historic value and being made from silver, it’s retailing at £1,955 so it is way outside of the budget of Millstreet Museum.
