Animal neglect, cruelty or abuse is still a major problem in Ireland today. According to the Dublin Society for the prevention of cruelty to animals, Ireland is known as the ‘Puppy farm Capital’ of Europe.
But it’s not all negative news, because throughout the length and breadth of the country, there are many groups working tirelessly and often voluntarily in the interests of animal welfare.
This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene visits the West Cork Animal Welfare Group at their kennels in Owenahincha. They were founded in 1999 in response to a desperate need to help unwanted, abandoned, neglected and abused animals in West Cork.
We meet people who foster, adopt, fundraise and showcase the work of the group.
We bring you the story of ‘Toffee’, the little Yorkshire terrier who had suffered serious neglect and cruelty, and suffered with a broken paw for twelve months, before it was discovered.
We meet a member of ‘Friends Forever’, a Swedish animal welfare group, and discover the huge difference between animal welfare legislation in both countries. … continue reading the full article ““Where The Road Takes Me” at 7 This Evening on C103″
What a truly wonderful response we’re received regarding our query just posted on our website last night! And we are so very grateful to Jerry Sheehan of Los Angeles, California, USA who has identified the Saints on both windows of St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet. The letters SC and SD provide an important clue – the “S” on all the windows symbolises the word “Saint”. Jerry now reveals that the Saint on the large window at the back of the Choir Gallery is Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque. And the Saint on the other window is Saint Charles Borremo while the Saint depicted in the smaller frame of the same window is Saint Dominic. Thanks a million, Jerry, for so very promptly contacting our Millstreet Museum email address with such highly significant information. (S.R.)
Hello ! I plan to be in Millstreet in late March, likely March 30 and 31.
my goal is to find more information about my grandfather Thomas Bartholomew Mantle b. County Cork 1820, d. Kentucky USA 1903
and/or his likely father Thomas C. Mantle b. 1799 in Cork.
I have found a Thomas Mantle in the Tithe Applotment
Books, 1823-1837. he is listed several times.
I have also found a Thomas Mantle as a butcher in Millstreet, along with a
possible brother, Joseph Mantle in Slater’s Directory
Would there likely be additional information on him anywhere
in the Millstreet area ?
before arriving in Millstreet, I will have visited the various
repositories in Dublin, but with limited time constraints. any tips
you have for searching there would be appreciated.
Is there anyone you might recommend to guide me in finding more
information about my family in Milstreet ?
I am also sending this via the messenger contact to Millstreet.ie.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

Put a STOP to the DROPs!’ is the new Green Code for Derinagree in their quest to save water. This code was chosen by Ms. Kiely’s Rang 3&4. The entire school has been busy conserving water.
- Read the water meter weekly
- check that taps are turned off properly
- report leaks to our caretaker John
- use a basin in the sink when washing up
- inserted a (water filled)1L milk carton into each cistern to save 1 L for every flush.
We also invited 2 speakers who are experts on conserving water.
Berne Connolly from the Cork Environmental Forum explained how little water in the world is safe for drinking! When we discovered that it was 1% we realised what a precious resource water is! She also showed us how much water is ‘hidden’ in the products we buy e.g. meat, clothes etc. She encouraged us to grow our own food.
Stephanie O’ Toole (from STREAMSCAPES) shared with us the dangerous world of MICRO BEADS! These are tiny plastic particles commonly used in shampoos & toothpaste to improve cleansing power. However we soon realised the terrible harm these pieces of plastic were to the fish.
You can download an app called ‘Beat the Microbead’. Use this app to scan products for these microplastic ingredients! You can then choose to buy a product that does not harm aquatic life.
As a result of these inspirational guests, the senior classes made their own GREEN CLEANING product with vinegar, breadsoda & lemon juice!
Leaky Detectives are now on the prowl to STOP that DROP, as are the Energy Squad whose job it is to switch off lights & shut doors. Our WASTE WATCHERS (no….they’re not in Cullen on Monday nights!) have hardly any work to do according to the children as they now have the hang of keeping our yard & classrooms litter free! Well done! … continue reading the full article “Water Flag Mission at Derrinagree N.S. – Superb Third Green Flag!”

We are well into 2017 by now, with the first week in February behind us and the colds and flu’s still making their presence felt, but we must press on regardless.
Many of our National Schools are holding registration days inviting the new comers for next year, to sign in. It’s a common sight nowadays to see large notice boards outside, giving details of the dates when registration can take place. God be with the days when children went to their own nearest school.

We thank Presenter, John Greene, for the following advance notice of his very popular Sunday evening radio programme on C103 – Sunday, 5th Feb. 2017 at 7pm. (S.R.)
This Sunday evening on ‘Where the road takes me’, we broadcast the third and final programme – ‘Professor Gerry O’Sullivan – Surgeon of renown – Legacy of hope’. It’s the conclusion of a look at the life and career of a larger than life, and an outstanding surgeon who passed away five years ago, almost to the day.
This week Michael O’Mahony from Glasheen speaks about his friendship with Gerry o’Sullivan, and how he arrived at his daughter’s wedding directly after performing a nine hour cancer operation.
At the Cork Cancer Research Centre which he founded in 1999, we discover that his office had to face West towards his beloved village of Caheragh. We meet some of the principal investigators here who tell us about their current work, and how they are also determined to discover cures for cancer which Gerry was adamant could be found with hard work and no excuses.
His wife Breeda tells us about her shock when they returned from a visit to the States to be told that her husband’s cancer had returned even more aggressively than before.
And his son Eoghan and daughter Orla on how their involvement and interaction with the Research Centre is a tangible link to the memory of their father. … continue reading the full article ““Professor Gerry O’Sullivan – Surgeon of Renown – Legacy of Hope””
