Fr. Paddy O’Byrne, West End has just been in touch with us in relation to an article that John D. Neenan has read in New York’s “Irish Post” newspaper. The article refers to the excellent “scoop” feature which Michael Cashman of our website team shared some weeks ago when he gave the impression that the two famous American people who were on honeymoon in Ireland had arrived in Millstreet Town Park and were on the way to trace their Aunagloor roots at Millstreet Museum! (click the photo above to see the article) The couple did in fact visit Ireland but unfortunately there was no sign of them in Millstreet … except in Michael’s hugely popular photoshopping expertise giving the real impression that they had landed in Millstreet a few weeks ago! Thank you, Fr. Paddy and John D. for alerting us to such an uplifting and truly prestigious mention of the Millstreet website in the “Irish Echo”. And well done to Michael for such creative wit. One never knows who could be visiting www.millstreet.ie ! (S.R.)

Tom Roche (pictured above) travelled to Millstreet from Tullamore, Co. Offaly on Friday, 4th July to photograph Joanne O’Riordan at Joanne’s Grove in Millstreet Town Park for the “Hug a Tree” Project 2014. As you note from our feature it was quite a rainy morning but Tom captured great images and Joanne’s mother, Anne, provided weather cover for the ever-witty and cheerful Joanne. Later we shall have lots more information on this wonderfully creative annual project and will link to Tom’s website. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)
And here we recall the original planting of Joanne’s tree in 1997 at the superb instigation of Principal of Scoil Mhuire, Millstreet BNS – Jim Bradley who stated words which Anne so clearly remembers to this day “As we observe the blossoming of this tree, so also we shall witness the blossoming of Joanne.” And how very true this is now seventeen years later. We thank Jim for permitting us to include three 1997 pictures from our Museum Pictorial Archive of the special event.
And now back to 2014 when after the photography in the Town Park we all went to Nibbles to celebrate this historic experience. We share more pictures from [read more …] “Joanne’s Grove 1997 and The Tree Hugging Project 2014”
