Pipe Band 60th Celebrations

Millstreet Pipe Band will be having a 60th Anniversary Celebration at the Dromhall Hotel, Killarney, Co. Kerry on March 26th 2011, with music on the night by the Kelt.

This is an opportunity for the Millstreet Community & for past members to join in with the celebrations of the band.

This Patrick’s Day marks 60 years playing in the Millstreet St.Patricks Day Parade, and that 60 years is a huge achievement because it is 60 years of unbroken service, the kind of which is rarely seen these days.

There are two members of the first Se.Patricks Day Parade still playing in the band for the 60th Parade this year. Is this a record, for 60 years of unbroken service?

Imbolc 2011 – Smaointe den scoth i mBaile Bhuirne!

Information in Irish follows the English version.

On the 12th of February eight of the most original and innovative thinkers in Ireland gather in Ballyvourney, Co. Cork, to give a day of talks on the ground-breaking projects they are working on. The name of the conference is “Imbolc”, and perhaps the most innovative facet of the whole event is that it is taking place entirely through the medium of the Irish language. This event is a perfect antidote to the negativity and paralysis that many in Ireland feel at the moment, and our goal is to inspire and challenge the audience to push the borders in their own thinking.

It is a one-day event, with each of the eight speakers given twenty minutes to make their presentation. As the speakers come from a wide range of disciplines, including business, science, the arts, and technology, this format will give the greatest opportunity for variety and the greatest possibility for cross-pollination of ideas.
