The fine weather continues and the effects can be seen in the faces of people as they lap up the warm sunshine. Fine weather can mean different things to different people. Some love to sunbathe, others love it to dry the washing and to be able to send the little ones to play in the out-of-doors. Those who engaged in outdoor work, builders, farmers, agricultural contractors and so on. And one little lady put it in a nutshell for me this week when she said with pride, ’my turf is nearly dry’. That’s what the fine weather meant to her.

The beautiful weather over the weekend brought a mixture of joy and sadness as is always the case. Lives were lost both on road and water and our sympathy goes out to all involved. The month of June opened with a mighty thunder storm and flash floods that ripped roads from Mushera Mountain to town of Millstreet and images of the phenomenon were flashed across the globe as it occurred. But there were no reports, locally of damage to people or property and for that we must be grateful.
The annual Mass planned for St.Mary’s Cemetery on Friday evening, had to be moved to the parish church, and the waiting crowds just had time to make their escape before the torrents began.
After a long hot sticky day, the heavens opened at about 7pm for an hour yesterday evening with such intense rain that hasn’t been seen in a good few years leading to some flooding and damage. Any flooding / damage in your area ?
Coordinated by Millstreet INTO – and very especially by Joan O’Mahony and Con Meade – a truly impressive Presentation Ceremony took place on Tuesday, 29th May 2018 at Café Aroma, Minor Row, Millstreet to honour Susan O’Connor and Mary Lynch who following many dedicated years of teaching at Rathcoole N.S. recently retired. Mary Magner representating the national INTO also addressed the large gathering of Teachers. Accompanying the Retiring Teachers were their husbands Gerry and Der. Noreen, Joan and Staff of Café Aroma prepared a magnificent banquet of delicious food and drinks for the special occasion. Here we share a selection of images which will help to give an idea of the wonderful atmosphere – joyful, relaxing and uplifting where superbly witty addresses by Joan, Mary (Magner), Mary (Lynch) and Susan were delivered. We extend sincere congratulations to Mary and Susan for a long, healthy and very Happy Retirement. Click on the pictures to enlarge. (S.R.) [read more …] “Retirement I.N.T.O.

The sunny days seem to make everything possible. And since they come so seldom we tend to lap them up. Work at silage is at fever pitch, by sunlight by day and lamplights at night. Please be extra vigiliant at this busy time and be on the look out for heavy increase in traffic, on all roads.
The final days of the Month of May are upon us but there are still a few things to be enjoyed on the wonderful IRD Duhallow Feile na Bealtaine list.
