The late Ben Hartnett one of the cattle dealing Hartnetts from Knocknagree
An easy going fellow he did seem carefree
He married a Millstreet woman and with her settled down
And they raised their sons and their daughters at The Bridge Millstreet Town
His sons the late Noel and Con and Vincent a chip of the old block
Like their ancestral Hartnetts traded in livestock

It was my privilege to be part of a community celebration on Saturday night in Green Glens, Millstreet. The celebration marked many years of contribution by Sean Radley to his local community and beyond. He is a man who has done endless small things with great love and will continue to do so for many more years. Sean’s contribution to his local community is beyond measure. No money could buy his contribution to education, local television, local radio and his unique ability to make every person feel special. We so often take many people for granted in our lives but on Saturday night over 600 people gathered to say thanks and well done. Such was the enthusiasm [read more …] “Seán Radley’s Night”
