It’s been a good year for the people and village of Innishannon.
Having won a bronze medal this year and last, the tidy towns committee celebrate fifty years of keeping the village bright, clean and beautiful.
Shortly, a book of guided walks around the village will be launched.
Having initially been launched as a once-off, “Innishannon Candlelight”magazine celebrates thirty five years.
It’s fifty years since the Community Hall opened its doors and Alice Taylor has just launched a book which inspires its readers to value the here and now, rather than dwell on the past or future. It’s advice that best- selling authors Eckhart Tolle or Anthony De Mello would give their stamp of approval to.
This week on Where the road takes me, John Greene pays a visit to hear more about their good news. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” in Innishannon on C103 Sunday at 7pm”

IRD Duhallow are delighted to announce that Dr. Maureen Griffin of MGMS Training Ltd. will hold a public seminar on ‘Social Media – Challenges for Parents’ on Wednesday December 12th in the James O’Keeffe Institute, Newmarket at 7.30pm. All parents, guardians, teachers and those with a responsibility for young people are invited to attend.
Dr. Griffin is a nationally renowned forensic psychologist who has worked close with An Garda Síochána, Irish Defence Forces and the HSE. Dr.Griffin has visited over 700 schools across Ireland to discuss internet safety for primary and post-primary school children. The seminar will provide an overview of what is currently popular among Irish students, what the potential dangers are and will offer practical advice on how to protect children when they are online or using their mobile devices. Issues such as social networking sites (e.g. Instagram); social messaging/chatting apps (e.g. snapchat); video-streaming sites (e.g. YouTube); mobile device safety; screen time & sleep; grooming; sexting and cyber-bullying will be addressed with time provided for Q&A. Parents and guardians must be regularly updated on the safe use of the internet given the increased time children spend online and the speed at which the industry changes. Dr. Griffin will provide a brief overview of mainstream sites and upcoming applications with the aim of providing knowledge to parents and teachers who are better placed to manage the virtual world.

A wonderful annual Millstreet tradition on Presentation Day (21st Nov. 2018) was superbly upheld today when the children from Presentation N.S. splendidly enhanced the liturgy of the 10:00 a.m. Mass with their truly exquisite singing and music.

On Saturday evening, 3rd November 2018 in the presence of her three brothers and sister, her six children, her seventeen grandchildren and her twelve great-grandchildren as well as her many relations and friends – the wonderful Lally Healy of Pound Hill, Millstreet celebrated her 90th Birthday in the beautiful setting of the Wallis Arms Hotel. The most enjoyable occasion was video recorded by Lally’s brother, Brendan (Murphy). Great credit is due to the dedicated organisers of the very special event. They arranged a supremely impressive setting with a special booklet, historic family photographs, excellent musical entertainment provided by John White and Michael Murphy and deciding on a delicious meal menu. One of the many highlights of the occasion was the recitation of a brilliant poem about Lally’s inspirational life by Marie Healy. Marie had composed this truly great poem. When Lally was asked what was her secret living into her 90s she replied: “Hard work and keep your mind busy”. And one of Lally’s favourite past times is knitting which she approaches with uplifting creativity and generously gifts many completed items to CUMH. Sincere congratulations to 90 years young Lally as she begins her very active life into her 90s. Here we share some twenty images from the magnificent event. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

Over thirty years ago, environmental biologist Kevin Corcoran approached several tourism bodies with his suggestions for walking guide-books and walking holidays. All were rejected out of hand. Today, the popularity of activity holidays continue to soar.
Undaunted, Kevin Corcoran brought out his first guide book twenty eight years ago. It has since been updated on five occasions, and many more have followed. On this week’s edition of Where the road takes me, John Greene accompanies him on one of the featured walks in the book, which takes in Glengarriffe National Park.
‘A walk in the wild side’ with Kevin Corcoran, Eco-Dweller, Environmental biologist, and a man who rejects all forms of mass consumerism. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 at 7pm This Sunday”
