Eily’s Report 17th April 2018

It is indeed heartening to see that in spite of wind and weather, we still have people who are determined to press on and bring help where help is needed, be it in the form of fodder for animals or ways of cheering people up in these trying times.

The Trad Fest which was held at the weekend was wonderful and varied. Little children got up early on Friday morning and travelled to Cork where they sang their little hearts out and came second in their category, much to the delight of their families and  they danced in our GAA Hall again with great success, next morning. Up to 90 sets in all entered the competition, and there was a capacity crowd at Wallis Arms that night for a Gala Concert. There was something for everyone.

Other than that there were pockets of music in the bars in town. And the Feile Ceol which was held at the Community School on Sunday brought a wonderful weekend to a close. Bringing Children out brings parents out and there was a wonderful atmosphere of enjoyment throughout. Well done to the hard working organisers.

And there’s a children’s Festival on April 28th.  [read more …] “Eily’s Report 17th April 2018”

Eily’s Report – 10th April

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my Weekly Report.

I was very pleased to have been part of the very prestigious launch of the Beara Breifni Way Heritage Stamps, which was held at the Abbey Hotel in Roscommon at the weekend. It was attended by over two hundred people  some from the very source of this epic development, Castletownbere itself, and many places in between. Including Michael and Marian O’Sullivan, Eileen O’Riordan and family, agus mé féin representing Millstreet.

The master of ceremonies was the well-known Deirdre Purcell, author and RTE presenter. There was an excellent line-out of speakers during the  day long event, and the final speaker was the Minister for Rural and Community Development Mr. Michael Ring TD who performed the official launch.

The launch marks another step forward in what is now being regarded as the Irish Camino Way. And the Great Jim O’Sullivan from Castletownbere can be thanked for starting its development from humble beginnings almost twenty years ago.  And he was highly commended for his work at the launch. Further information about the placing of the stamps will be given in due course.

A Community Council Meeting will be held tonight starting at 8.30 at the Wallis Arms Hotel.

Eilys Report – 3rd April

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a cairde and welcome. Hope you are all well following yet another rather wet ‘n windy week.

This lovely message from our Parish Priest, Canon John Fitzgerald was included in our Mass leaflet at the weekend and it says. My sincere thanks to all who participated in our Easter Ceremonies, those who helped to prepare our Churches and for all those who attended ceremonies and helped to make them so meaningful for our Parish.

I welcome home all who have travelled to be with their families this Easter Season and we keep in our thoughts those who are not with us.

In return we want to thank the members of our clergy for a wonderful Easter Season. We are so fortunate to have such a fine group of priests on the wings as it were, to help out at busy times. Frs. Paddy O‘Byrne, Billy Radley,Sean Tucker, Con Kiely, and of course Canon John from over the road in Boherbue. For me at least its a joy because I knew their parents and families before them, and always look upon them as one of our own.  [read more …] “Eilys Report – 3rd April”

Dia is Mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome.

This is Holy Week and as it brings the six weeks of Lent to a close, we are all asked to join in the prayers and ceremonies in the run up to Easter Sunday. Every parish in the Country and indeed throughout the world will put on services to lead us on to Good Friday, and the Crucifixion of Christ. Rarely have there been a greater need for people to join together and pray that the Good Lord will help the world to overcome some of the problems  that confront us  today.

The Stations of the Cross are always popular during Lent and can be said anytime. Our Church ceremonies begin on Holy Thursday, In Cullen at 6.30 and in Millstreet at 8pm.

On Good Friday, in Cullen at 6.30 and in Millstreet at 3pm, Holy Saturday, Polish Mass –Blessing of food in Millstreet at 2pm and Easter Vigil  Mass in Millstreet at 9pm.

Eily’s Report – 20th March

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly report.

As always the wheel of Millstreet keeps on turning and this past week was no exception. We had our St. Patrick’s Day Parade, a mountain climb, West Cork Rally, plus a mighty Rave Concert on Sunday at the Green Glens, attended by over 4000 revellers, to name but a few. And all went off without any bad incidents or injury. Baoichas le Dia.

Our St. Patricks Day Parade was made special as the one and only couple Daniel O’Donnell and Majella dropped in to be our Grand Marshals as part of their their countrywide travels to film their popular RTE program, “Daniel and Majella’s B&B Road Trip.” A certain amount of confidentiality surrounds all these things and all I can say is that you’ll be seeing it on your screens in a few months time.

We were blessed with a cold but dry afternoon, and the crowds turned out in the thousands to cheer our renowned guests. Ireland’s win over England earlier in the day had them well psyched up for the parade at 5 o’clock and the pubs and food outlets, and taxis etc. did a roaring trade.

Mothers Day was widely celebrated last weekend, with Dads and Kids taking over the reins in the kitchen, thus making herself a lady of leisure for the one day in the year that is singled out for all Mothers. Gift Shops, hotels and restaurants did a roaring trade and as a rising tide raises all craft, everybody was a winner.

Last night Monday March 12 marked to closing of another Weigh-In in Cullen following their annual eight weeks stint, by the Cullen Special Needs Association.

€5,500 was collected on the night with more to come in the weeks ahead. 450 pounds weight lost. Many congratulations to this hardworking group on another successful venture.

Their annual Threshing Day will be held later in the year.

Well there is only one thing to talk about, and that’s the snow.

It brought our worlds to a standstill for a couple of days, and maybe that was not a bad thing. For a short time we were able, or were forced, to look at life from another angle and what emerged was nothing short of amazing. People became people again and not beings who fled off into their own world every day, with not a moment to greet or get to know who lives next door or down the road. The heavy snow brought them out of their cocoons to realise that those living in these places had names and were up for building a snowman and indeed some advanced snow art. Those who put their creations on social media spread the joy to the whole world.

Every slope became a piste with young and old sliding down in gay(fun) abandon. Outside of that people looked after one another  in so many lovely ways. I could go on and on but the bottom line  is  now that  the world is becoming snowless again  the friendships that were born of the blizzards will not melt away.

A very important meeting will be held at the Wallis Arms Hotel tonight to plan our St. Patricks Day Parade which will be held in the town at 5 O’clock on March 17th. Starting from the Station Road. All interested parties please attend.

A wonderful event was held at the pub in Carriganima on Friday night.  It was a reunion of Football teams from, Aubane, Ballydaly, Clondrohid, and the Slanan Rovers.   Sadly due to other commitments I wasn’t able to attend. It was a night of reminiscing and back slapping and once again enjoying the stories of the great times that were, back in the 50s and 60s. Times when people mixed freely, packed big numbers into cars, played their games in any field, and mended their cuts and bruises in situ. Their brochure included pictures of the teams and they are a joy to observe. I hope that more occasions like this will follow so that past times can teach us all a lesson on how life really should be lived, Well done to the organisers.

I must congratulate the lovely Maggie Moynihan of Coalpits in Cullen on winning the All Ireland Final of the Scór Solo Singing which was held in Sligo at the weekend. The people of Cullen and their award winning pipe band turned out amid blazing bonfires to welcome their young star home on Sunday evening. The last such accolade to be won in Cullen was back in the 70s which made Maggie’s win all the sweeter. No doubt we’ll be hearing more about her in the future.

 

The AGM of the Community Council will be held tonight at the Wallis Arms Hotel, starting at 8 and all are welcome.

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a Cairde and welcome to my weekly report from Millstreet.

And what a wonderful weekend it has been. Dawn to dawn celebrations.  It started well with the Bradley Family winning our Lotto Jackpot of €8,400.

Then the Knocknagree All Ireland victory in Croke Park on Saturday.  That night  Cullen GAA lauded their brilliant team of ‘67 who won no less than three cups that year, and every man was presented with a beautiful plaque, comprising of a photograph of the team plus a medal. The presentation was made by Jeffrey O Sullivan  (lifelong President of the Club), at a gala social  held at the East Avenue Hotel on Saturday night.

But there was no time to sit back, next door neighbours Kanturk were in the hot seat next day in Croke Park where they continued the winning streak by claiming  All Ireland victory at  Hurling. They partied away the hours at the famed Red Cow Hotel, to the live entertainment of our own Kelt.

And Johnnie Sextons last minute score took us back to ’87 and Pakie Bonners brilliant save which led us to the World Cup.

It almost too much to take in. Congratulations all round.

There is a great uplifting air about the place in spite of the weather this week. The  Millstreet Got Talent Contest was an outstanding success.

Since the heats began last December there has been widespread  speculation, with the results of each  one, building up excitement  to the grand finale which went ahead at the Wallis Arms Hotel last Friday Night. The finalists performed to a full house and the results were deemed fair to all.

The lingering  of flu epidemic  took it’s toll on one popular finalist and indeed upon myself. And I was very sorry that I missed it. But while licking my wounds I couldn’t help having a happy feeling about it all. Happy in my own way that it went ahead without me. And that, after over forty years, I was able to sit back and leave it all to a group of fine young people who are willing to put their shoulder to the wheel, with the help of course of a number of the old reliables.

Millstreet is revving up for the two day mighty machinery show which will run here on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. There is a need for  more accommodation for the event, with some of the outlets not still up and running after the Christmas holidays. Those with some to offer can still contact the Wallis Arms Hotel and leave their details there. Or contact the office at the Green Glens 02970800.

The annual machinery show brings business people from all parts of the country,where they can exhibit their wares indoors, in the comfort of the Green Glens Arena. It starts each day, Wednesday and Thursday at 12 noon and will remain open until 10pm. Free car parking and all  in house services up and running.

The month of January is moving on and all the things that were fazed down for Christmas are up and running again. And please bear in mind that all the reminders that were voiced before the Festive Season, about shopping at Home should continue to take effect right throughout the year. Our stores and services need  our support every day.  Last week I was unable to bring you my report because my system was down and I had to buy a new laptop. Lucky for me, we have a wonderful store in town where I was able to get a brand new model  for four hundred Euro.  At the PC Spare Parts Ireland Store at the Bridge. The friendly service included the full set up of the appliance, and I was ready to go.  And if I needed help it was only a few minutes away. We must never under-estimate the value of our local town.

Eily’s Report – 19th December

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my report. First of all I want to apologise for my absence last week. I was among the many victims of the latest bout of flu and chest infection and  was left lying low for the week. But since I feel better now,  I’m a living proof that it’s not a killer desease, and it’s curable.

In the past week there has been a flurry of activities which I had to refrain from. Sadly  I missed the wonderful Christmas Concert given by the Duhallow Choral Society  in our Church in aid of our local hospital and there were lots more. But the drive is still on to make the world a better place for more people at Christmas time. No words of mine can do justice to the amount of effort that is put in by kind people at this time of year. And their work goes on right up to the last minute on Christmas Eve.

All around the parish national Schools have been staging their annual Christmas Plays ,with little children pouring their  hearts into the greatest story ever told.

Eily’s Report – 17th October

Dia is Mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my report.

Its October 17th the day after the biggest shut-down that this country has ever known, and relative calm has been restored. Buíochas le Dia. It was  pretty scary in the days beforehand, as we watched it being displayed on our screens, with a huge swirling red alert approaching us .

Its early in the day yet but I think all things considered, that we came out lightly, given the picture that we had in mind. Goodness knows the authorities at every level, did a great job in warning us of what may be in store, and with everything closed down it brought traffic to a halt, which was a great help in keeping people safe. And the minute by minute coverage by the media was invaluable.

The loss of life was extremely low, but even so it was regrettable that three people lost their lives countrywide. Our sympathy goes to the people of Kilcorney whose lovely parish Church became victim of the great storm. [read more …] “Eily’s Report – 17th October”
