In recent days it was brought to our notice that the much appreciated television signal from St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet was not working. Having alerted the necessary people with expertise in these matters it was discovered that a technical problem existed. Thankfully as the problem was internal and not connected to the aerial on the roof the cost of repair would not be as significant. The signal is now fully restored. Such a facility from a local parish church is indeed special and is quite a rare provision in other areas. The church television signal was initially established and financed by the Presentation Sisters primarily to provide access to church services for the Presentation Convent and St. Joseph’s Community Hospital. Private houses over quite a large area of Millstreet and its environs have also been able to receive the signal. It is transmitted on Channel 53 UHF. Those houses with an aerial pointing in the direction of the Church are most likely to receive the best signal. It can only be tuned in when a service is in progress at the Church where the camera which is focused on the main altar is switched on. (S.R.)

Due to such inclement weather conditions Tony McCaul has just informed us that tonight’s very special event at The Square has had to be DEFERRED until a later date. Sincere apologies but with such heavy showers of rain and with many young people scheduled to participate it was decided that it would be best to CANCEL tonight’s event and reschedule for another occasion.
(This of course was the Special Event where Our local National Schools from Millstreet Boys and Girls, Cloghoula, Killcorney, Rathcoole, Derrinagree and Cullen were scheduled to hold a Christmas Carol Service at the Monument in the Town Square between 7pm and 8pm this Friday evening (13th Dec. 2013) to celebrate the refurbishment and the re-opening of the Town Square in Millstreet. ) (S.R.)

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.)
