Gifted Poet, Karen O’Connor, formerly of Station Road, Millstreet we hope to meet tomorrow at 6.00 p.m. in Siamsa Tíre Theatre & Arts Centre, Town Park, Tralee when her book “Between the Lines” will be officially launched by the Mayor of Tralee, Gillian Wharton Slattery. This is just one of the many very uplifting comments on Karen’s first publication “Fingerprints” (2005):
“I think I’ll never forget reading “FINGERPRINTS (On Canvas)” for the first time. It was such a delight to discover a voice powered by a spirit of passionate celebration while at the same time confronting dark, difficult emotions, situations and ideas. This is a brilliant, humane, memorable book.”
Dr. Brendan Kennelly

Millstreet is still rocking from the wonderful party that was held at the Green Glens last night to celebrate the 100th birthday of Mrs. Margaret Reen. Our heartiest congratulations goes out to this most gracious of ladies. Up to ten priests helped to concelebrate Mass at the Green Glens including her first cousin , 92 yr old Fr. White who travelled all the way from the far ends of America to be with her and her family and friends for her big night. A wonderful meal was served by the Doody Family of Kingdom caterers. And at 12 ‘o clock midnight which marked her actual 100th birthday the crowd of over 500 family and friends gathered round to show their love and esteem for this lovely lady who has been such an icon of love and caring since coming to our town as our chemists , the late Frank Reen’s wife in the early 40s.We wish her many more years of health and Happiness in our midst. Mrs. Reen who is a great grand mother herself, can recall speaking to her own great grand mother, who was born in 1814, thus covering a staggering 7 generations of her own family. Look up our website for all the details.
