“Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 This Sunday at 7pm

We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information regarding his Sunday (14th June 2020) Radio Programme.  (S.R.)

It’s a Where the Road Takes Me ‘Special’ this week, as John Greene brings you the story of a Lockdown with a difference.

In a working-class district of West London, a mother calls her son, who has Asperger’s Syndrome’, downstairs for dinner.

Both she and her husband are unaware that their youngest has amassed 73 million dollars while trading in the financial markets on his home computer in his bedroom.

Neither are they aware that their son will become the focus of a global manhunt for allegedly causing the most mysterious financial crash in history.

Multi agencies, including the FBI will seek his extradition to the US where he faces a total of 378 years jail term.  

This is a ‘David and Goliath’ story at it’s very best.  But why is a home lockdown involved and still is, as we speak.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 This Sunday at 7pm”

Sincere Thanks from MCC to All Magnificent Front-line Workers

We received the following message from  Maura  Kiely,  Secretary,  Millstreet Community Council

On behalf of our community, Millstreet Community Council wish to acknowledge the Trojan work of the front-line staff of our hospital, medical surgeries, health centre, chemists, postmen, supermarkets, butchers, suppliers of petrol and diesel and all who helped the community in a variety of ways.

They served the community with good humour and smiles— even in the early days of this pandemic, before perspex protection and when nobody knew what to expect.
They all deserve our unending gratitude and perhaps the best way that we can show this gratitude now is to Shop Local.  (S.R.)

Eily’s Report – 9th June

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.

Here we go, here we go, here we go. The shackles are off and we’re free to go. I saw a picture in the paper a few days ago of hundreds of pigeons being released from a pigeon carrier which was obviously a long distance from base giving them the freedom to fly back home. That was the kind of scene that  hit my mind as I listened to the account of the latest phase of the Covid19 pandemic.  Yes we too got our freedom and it was great to feel it, even for a little while until reality kicked in which prompted us to go back and read that again.   I know it must be very disappointing  for people like hairdressers and their customers, playgrounds, The Sunday Mass to mention but a few but the amount of permission that has been given is after putting a new face on our  world. The Town of Millstreet is after coming alive. Builders tearing into projects that have lain idle for months and people meeting people, some for the first time in months and glorying in having the chat.   As I said in the past people showing more interest and goodwill than ever before.  Absence does make the heart grow fonder. For my own part of it and for those like me it was a joy to go into a shop be it the super store or the chemist or book shop or whatever, needless to say it was a strange feeling, almost apologetic, Should I be here.?. and then to go around the stands and view the display but with our strict training  of don’t touch anything top of our minds. Some customers diving for the sweet stuff, but me being a savoury person, made a beeline for the meat counter. Where the lambs liver was a sight for sore eyes, coupled  with streaky rashers and a fried egg with brown bread, I was in raptures at tea time that evening.

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday June 7th

Margaret Crowley

Not everybody gets a new cooker for their birthday, and even fewer get a new cooker for their birthday, when they reach 100 years.

Born in Lehina, Lislevane near Courtmacsherry on May-day 1920, Margaret Crowley arrived in this world as one pandemic ended.  One hundred years later, she is still around to witness another one begin. 

When her mother died at the young age of forty, there were nine children to be raised.  Her father rejected all calls to have his children separated and sent to Upton and Clonakilty.  During the following years, he proved himself to be a loving, caring and very capable parent.

On this week’s edition of Where the road takes me’, Margaret tells her story to John Greene

Her son Jim joins us to wax lyrical about his amazing mother.

And we track down Fr. Tom Sexton who was by cared for as a two year old  by Margaret, after his mother died in childbirth.

Millstreet International Horse Show/Horse Trials have been Cancelled for 2020

A statement from the Duggan Family on Millstreet.horse:

It is with great regret that we confirm that Millstreet International Horse Show (Show-Jumping) and Millstreet International Horse Trials (Eventing), will not take place this year.

We have closely observed everything that has unfolded since the middle of March, when we had to make the decision not to stage the International Welcome Tour. Foremost in our minds at all times were the possible effects that the COVID-19 pandemic would have on our two main equestrian fixtures; both scheduled for August 2020.   [read more …] “Millstreet International Horse Show/Horse Trials have been Cancelled for 2020”

Eily’s Report – 2nd June

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.

Already the first day of June is gone and can the next 29 be far behind? The hardest thing is to know what day of the week you’d have. Since the fabric of our daily lives has been I suppose torn to shreds. In normal times we had certain days for certain things. Mass for Sunday and Friday for the pension. Days for meeting friends for coffee, nights for meetings. But with the way things are now all the days are the same and we miss the routine more and more as the months go on. Still it is a small price to pay for the way that we are keeping the dreaded virus from our door. The weather still is playing it’s part by turning on the lovely sun early every morning and going on late into the evenings. They always say that the best part of the day is the early morning and I thoroughly agree. The early morning dew is worth getting up to see. Even in this dry spell, the dew falls heavy and wet at night to give everything a refreshing drink before the hot day starts.  To watch the early birds, scoffing up the spoils, packing their beaks to full capacity before heading off the feed their young and coming back for more.  Already some have their young on the wing and their noisy twittering gives great life to the scene. The gardens are coming along very well, now that Jack has put his Frost on the back burner but watch out for the green fly, they are back.  Garden Centres are doing a roaring trade in spite of all the precautions and the planting is giving great enjoyment to both parents and children.   They are making great use of this quality time during this emergency to engage in some relaxing hobbies. Children are experiencing new things all the time. I know a few who put their phones etc aside the other day and headed for a local stream and at day’s end they said they had the best time ever, messing around in the cooling water. We have seen some wonderful creations and great family closeness since the lockdown. Parents and children really getting to know each other, having time to listen to each other and plan things together.  We hope it will help form  friendships and understanding that they will never lose. Many people are very grateful for the experience.

We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information regarding this Sunday evening’s programme.  (S.R.)

Inspiration from the Past  –  Programme 2

Tomi  (Tomey)  Reichental

Thirty five members of his family perished in Auschwitz.  So, how did nine year old Tomi Reichental survive almost a year at the Nazi Concentration Camp in Bergen Belsen.

Timing, and Lady Luck lent a hand, but it was mostly the watchful eyes of his courageous Mother, Aunt and Grandmother that helped him through it all.

The one memory that will never leave him, is that of the emaciated body of his Grandmother being thrown like a sack of potatoes on to a mound of corpses.

Now an Irish citizen, Tomi Reichental joins John Greene on this week’s edition of Where the road takes me.

Starvation, disease, unbearable weather conditions and the brutality of Camp Commander Kramer and his side-kick, 22 year old Irma Grece – ‘The Beautiful Beast’, must all be overcome before liberation finally arrives. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm Sunday 31st May on C103″

Correspondence Regarding Proposed Wind Farm

The following email was received today  (29th May 2020)requesting that we share it on the Millstreet Website:

Dear Friends and Residents,

As you may know, Brookfield Renewables and Coillte are in discussions with An Bord Pleanala to develop a large wind farm [up to 24 turbines, a 110kv sub-station on site and associated connection to the national grid] in the Ballinagree/Mushera area. At present they have lodged a Pre-application Consultation with An Bord Pleanala as they wish to have the project designated as a Strategic Infrastructural Development which would mean that future planning applications would go to An Bord Pleanala and not Cork County Council.  As local residents, we have a number of concerns regarding the proposals, and are sending this letter out to encourage other concerned residents to become aware of what is going on. At the pre-application consultation stage An Bord Pleanala will NOT accept submissions from concerned citizens.  We must wait until the planning application proper has been lodged [whether that will be to An Bord Pleanala or Cork County Council remains to be seen]. This is expected to be done in December 2020.  In the meantime we would encourage you to contact your public representatives [some contact details below] and make them aware of your concerns.

Our main issues with the development are as follows: [read more …] “Correspondence Regarding Proposed Wind Farm”

Eily’s Report – 26th May

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.

Buíochas le Dia, no death to report from Covid 19 yesterday, for the first time since it all began back in March.  The first person died of the Covid 19 in Ireland on March 21st.  It is indeed great news. But it didn’t just happen. It was made to happen  by the efforts of every one in the country. Those at the top took on a parent role  and guided us through troubled waters, the likes we have never seen before. But we mustn’t forget that the battle still goes on and the hand washing, the social distancing, the staying at home as much as possible still goes on. Easy enough for me and my equals, but the young people are like greyhounds at the track, snapping at the gate to get out, it will take all the strength they have to keep a lid on it as they are slowly inched out to freedom. They have our prayers as we longingly await the first hug from loving grand/great grand children, other family members and friends.  But it will come,  le cúnamh Dé.

It’s worth mentioning that these are not two different people, but one person.  Throughout his life, Professor Joe o’Sullivan has been committed to improving the lives of patients with prostate cancer, through research and innovation.  His research programme is now recognised as a centre of excellence.  In between he has recorded three albums, the latest of which, ‘Instead of many shades of blue’, has just been released.
