Presentation of Impressive Quiz Cheque to Millstreet Day Care Centre

On Thursday night, 15th Nov. 2018 a truly impressive cheque of €2,000.00 was presented by Chairman of Millstreet Fianna Fáil Cumann, John A. O’Leary to Mary Feeley, Manager, Millstreet Day Care Centre.   This was the result of a most successful Donal Guiney Memorial Inaugural Quiz held at McCarthy’s Bar, Millstreet some weeks ago.   So popular was the Quiz that there were over sixty spot prizes shared on the occasion.   Asking the questions on the night was Noreen Meade before a capacity attendance.   We recorded interviews at the Presentation of the Cheque with John A. O’Leary, Mary Feeley, Deputy Michael Moynihan and with Vincent, Michael and Patrick Guiney.   This feature will be broadcast at 10pm on “Radio Treasures” on Cork Music Station on Tuesday, 20th Nov..  Here we share three images from the uplifting Presentation of the Cheque.

Thank you for supporting Trad for Trócaire at Millstreet Community School

Thank you to everyone who supported the Trad for Trócaire event that took place in Millstreet Community School on Friday 9th November.  It was a great evening of traditional song and music performed by the students, from 1st year all the way up to Leaving Certs.  Ms Janet Twomey (Trócaire, Cork) spoke about the type of projects that would benefit from money raised from the evening.  The event raised a total of €410 for Trócaire’s work.  Thank you for your generosity.

Trad for Trócaire – Friday 9th Nov. @7.30pm in Millstreet Community School

The students of Millstreet Community School are proud to be hosting a Trad for Trócaire event in the school library on Friday 9th November beginning at 7.30pm.  It will be a celebration of traditional Irish song, dance, music and the spoken word.  Students from all year groups will have the opportunity to participate and everyone in the community is welcome to attend.  Light refreshments will be served.  Admission is free although there will be a collection in aid of Trócaire’s work amongst some of the poorest communities in development countries.  We look forward to welcoming you on Friday.

WWI: Draft Registrations from Millstreet in the U.S.A.

Fifty seven Millstreet men were living in America at the time of the 1917 WWI Draft Register. All had to register. Some were chosen to fight, but fortunately for some, their numbers were not called out to fight in WWI.There were in all likely-hood others, but these are the ones we know whose numbers were not called out:

Eily’s Report – 31st October

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

The last Bank Holiday of the year passed off in great glee with the lovely weather and a countless number of both, indoor and outdoor pursuits there to be enjoyed by the young and the not so young, and to crown it all, the clocks went back an hour, thus adding another precious sixty minutes to the fun. The air was crisp and chilly giving it an almost Christmassy feeling.

 

We had the Pony Owners Show at the Green Glens Arena for three days and Halloween parties were held at different venues, each with  the view of raising lots of funds for different good causes, as well as hours of enjoyment for all those who supported them.Other  events  like football matches, stag parties, and even a wedding were also crammed into the Bank Holiday weekend.

Census 2016: Are we too reliant on manufacturing?

The Irish Independent notes today that in 2016, Millstreet had the second highest reliance on the manufacturing industry as an employer in the country:

“… some towns are heavily reliant on just one industry. For example, in seven towns, more than 25pc of the workforce were employed in manufacturing in April 2016 – they include Ballyhaunis, in Co Mayo, where 41.88pc of workers are in the sector, followed by Millstreet, in Co Cork, at 33.92pc…” [1]

From a community perspective, you’d prefer a broader spread of the workforce across industries, because in our case we may be too exposed to a shock to the manufacturing sector. At the same time we’re glad to have Alps, Munster Joinery, and the other smaller manufacturers in the area for the jobs they bring.

Detailed employment tables for Millstreet are below, though just the town and not include the surrounding hinterland.  [read more …] “Census 2016: Are we too reliant on manufacturing?”

Ballydehob and Mayo Themes on “Where the Road Takes Me” This Evening at 7 on C103

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information regarding this evening’s feature on C103 at 7pm.  (S.R.)

This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene looks into the life and times of one of Ireland’s last street singers. Gail McMenamen talks about her brother Basil Morahan who was known throughout the country as ‘Dan the Street Singer’. A schoolteacher by trade, Basil’s attempts to keep the street singing tradition alive often embarrassed his family by dressing as a tramp. But the multi-talented Mayo man was in constant demand to sing and play in all parts of the country.     And….

In Ballydehob we reminisce on two local
sisters who ran a famous hostelry in the village, where everybody regardless of social standing was treated the same. Nell and Julia Levis are still fondly remembered by all who knew them. [read more …] “Ballydehob and Mayo Themes on “Where the Road Takes Me” This Evening at 7 on C103″

 39 battery storage compounds planned for Caherdowney

Recent objections to the Energy Storage Facility in Ballydesmond has been making headlines in the news, but few realise that there is a much larger one planned for Caherdowney, which has been in for planning since this January.

Battery storage compounds capture surplus energy from wind farms during times of excess energy (high winds, nighttime) and release it back into the power grid during times of peak consumption.

The planning states: “a battery energy storage facility which will comprise of rechargeable battery units contained within up to 39 no. 40 foot containers on site and the associated development of unit substations, a 110kV substation, security fencing, security cameras, lightning mast, new site roads and the upgrading of the existing vehicular access. The facility will connect into the adjoining Ballyvouskill ESB substation via underground cable. All associated site development, landscaping and boundary treatment works above and below ground.” [read more …] ” 39 battery storage compounds planned for Caherdowney”

Recent Language and Culture Night featured in TG4 broadcast on Sunday 20th May 2018

Those who attended the Language and Culture Night which was held in Millstreet Community School on 10th May will know that a journalist and cameraman working for TG4 were present.  They interviewed Irish teacher Ms Majella Horgan and three TY students, Jennifer Kelly, Gemma O’Regan and Katie Healy earlier in the evening.  An edited version of what they filmed will be shown on TG4 on Sunday 20th May between 7pm and 7.30pm as part of Nuacht.  The clip may only be two minutes in duration but it is good that they were able to be present to document such a worthwhile and memorable event.

Looking for relatives of Timothy Foley

I am looking for relatives of TIMOTHY FOLEY who lived in the Millstreet area. He was born at Doon (Doonasleen) on the 17 July 1902. I recall being told his daughter played cards at Marion’s Bar (McCarthy’s Bar) some 12 or 14 years ago. I myself am from Doon trying to help a relative of the Foleys in Idaho USA. Like to know where Foleys are buried. I suspect the old cementery Cullen. She is visiting Ireland in August, and any help is welcome. I live in New York. Would like to hear from you. <email> [read more …] “Looking for relatives of Timothy Foley”
