Bus Eireann have announced that they are reducing the number of scheduled bus stops through Millstreet every day (Route 40 Cork-Tralee). However they will be running a shuttle bus from Macroom to Killarney via Millstreet twice in both directions every day
There will be thirteen departures a day in each direction from Cork to Tralee every day. All services will now operate on the main road via Ballyvourney only. Route 257 will provide a shuttle connection between Macroom/ Killarney and Millstreet/Rathmore. The new timetable changes come into effect from Feb 28th.
Busses passing through Millstreet will be at (Mon-Saturday only):
towards Killarney 12:55 & 15:55 &19:40
towards Macroom 09:40 & 14:40
towards Killarney 14:40 19:40
towards Macroom 19:05
The old times through Millstreet were
Mon – Sat to Tralee: 10:40 14:40 18:40 21:40
Sundays to Tralee: 09:40 14:40 18:40 21:40
Mon – Sat to Cork: 07:30 10:05 13:05 15:05 19:05
Sundays to Cork: 10:05 13:05 15:05 19:05
This means that there are less than half the buses in the day, and that there is little chance of getting to Cork or Killarney for a day trip. There are no peak time services for students especially (Friday evening & Sunday evening). We can only hope that a private bus company picks up the pieces, or that the trains give more attractive pricing.

TADGH Collins grabbed a hat-trick as Millstreet claimed their place in the second round of the Murphy’s Irish Stout County Cup after a comprehensive 4-1 victory over Knockraha at Pigeon Hill on Saturday in the first round of the County Cup.

RATHDUANE NATIONAL SCHOOL: The future of Rathduane National School is under the spotlight as parents and friends go all out to save their local rural based primary school base.

OVER the past month or so, roads and water services all over Cork county have experienced widespread damage as a result of the appalling weather conditions.
This has led to many people suffering severe hardship and disruption to their daily lives – they were left without running water in their homes and their local roads were ripped up by the heavy rain, snow and ice.
In response to this crisis, an emergency repairs work programme fund of €6m has been put in place by Cork County Council to carry out emergency repairs to roads and water supplies in the county.
WATER supplies in Millstreet are still at a ‘critically low level,’ and Cork County Council are advising all users to keep usage to a minimum, as leaks within private residences still need to be repaired.
Unless there is a reduction in the water usage within the next few hours Cork County Council will have no choice but to discontinue the water supply at night to allow reservoirs to be restored to normal operating levels,” said a spokesperson on Monday.
The situation did not improve and water supplies in Millstreet were turned off at night at the time of The Corkman going to press..
2009 was the year that the world that we knew fell apart. Unemployment figures went through the roof, many people learned the sad fact that there is no such thing as free money, the banks came a begging looking for our money to bail them out.
The weather matched the mood of the year with rain, wind, snow and ice and no sunshine.

The awful happenings in Haiti some days ago, shook the world, but here in Millstreet we felt a kind of affiliation with that country, because last years our community fundraised to enable Jerry Pat O Leary to go to that troubled land, as part of the Haven organisation, to build houses for those people who are so, so poor. Jerry tells us that the place where they worked is well away from the epi-centre of the earthquake and that the houses they built are still intact. He is having a meeting with the Haven organisation to-night to decide what further help they can be in Haiti. We will keep you informed. And please note that a fund for the cause has been opened at our Credit Union.

John Tarrant takes a look back on the hurling year that was in Duhallow GAA
THE second part of the Millstreet GAA review focuses on hurling where a number of teams came up short in both league and championships.
Dwelling on the JAHC, a powerful surge in extra time allowed Kilbrin pull away from a gritty Millstreet to secure a 422 to 5-15 win in a dramatic first round played in Banteer. From a hotly competitive and a pulsating encounter, the pace and the tempo of the game was frantic from the outset and with 46 scores in total registered confirmed those in attendance received value for money.
Thereafter, Millstreet flattered to deceive where a sharper Freemount possessed too much firepower for Millstreet on recording a 3-12 to 2-12 triumph in the 2nd round qualifier played in Kanturk. At the end of the hour, Millstreet yielded to the greater stickwork and greater combined play of Freemount.
RAIL passengers travelling to Kerry on Sunday night (10th Jan) endured a nightmare journey home when engine failure caused the final service of the day to be almost five hours late arriving in Tralee. This was the evening of the snow and cold.
Commuters found themselves stranded between Millstreet and Rathmore for over two hours on an Intercity train with intermittent heat and lighting, when the 7.10pm service developed engine problems shortly after leaving Mallow Train Station.
The train eventually arrived at Tralee at 3.47am on Monday morning, fully four hours and 42 minutes late for a journey scheduled to last three hours and 55 minutes.
WEARY residents in Millstreet forgot about their lack of water for the past month on Sunday evening and community spirit took over as people put their artistic skills to the fore and built a giant igloo and snowman.
