Well regardless of the weather, we had a great Christmas. Our newly refurbished Church looked great for the Nativity Mass. A few changes were evident, with the pulpit now beside the extended alter. It looks great and is used by those doing the readings. The Crib was placed just inside the entrance door, down at the end of the church, for the first time in many, many years. Donations for the crib are for charity every year.

… or so says the Millstreet Development Group, whose excellent idea on how to keep money in the local vicinity is getting more and more time on the airways and papers. There’s loads of favourable points as to why we should get the vouchers such as:
Any local employer can give workers up to €250 worth of vouchers € tax-free, which can be spent in participating shops in the town. These vouchers can be given in lieu of wages or bonus payments Normally at this time of year, companies might give a ‘one-for-all’ voucher or vouchers for a particular store. The problem here is that in most cases the money leaves the town and in some instances commission is charged on vouchers. There will be no commission charged on the Millstreet vouchers, meaning that the recipients get their full value … and offer a variety of extra deals, discounts and packages.

Garda John Crowley from the Millstreet Station was on Patricia Messenger’s radio show on C103FM this morning, warning of an increase in crime in the general area of west/north west Cork county. Most notable were:
Distraction crime: where a group of people enter a shop and distract the owner, while one of the group steal something either in the shop or enter the office / store and take money / goods from there. Money, cigarettes and alcohol are their favourite targets. He advised to lock all back rooms when not in use.
As oil prices rise again, some are reverting to stealing home heating oil from homes and diesel from farms. Sometimes it’s just a jerry can, other times it’s the full delivery. Advise is to lock them and make the job as difficult as possible for anyone thinking of stealing your fuel.
Finally, outhouses are becoming a target too, so lock away anything worth stealing and be careful that anyone visiting the house / yard doesn’t get a good look around to see what would be worth stealing during the day or in the dead of the night. And if you are suspicious, of someone in the yard, write down the car/van registration for later use, so that your “visitors” can be tracked down at a later date.
So be careful and keep your things safely locked away.
In his 100th year. Removal from Tarrant’s Funeral Home, Millstreet this Wednesday evening at 8pm to St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet. Requiem Mass tomorrow, Thursday, at 1pm, followed by burial in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Millstreet.

YOUGHAL withstood a determined finish from Millstreet in a keenly contested County U-16 ‘B’ Football Championship semi final played at a rainlashed Mourneabbey last Monday.Weather conditions were anything but suitable for the game and great credit must go to both set of players for serving up a high standard of play given the wretched rain that prevailed in the opening half. At the end of the hour, there could be no argument about the outcome, Youghal were far, the hungrier side, their application superb and in general, the East Cork boys emerged much more enterprising in the prevailing conditions.
