Primary School CD Cover design needed.

Calling all Millstreet Primary School student artists!

The Millstreet Primary School Parents Association are looking for help to design the front and back cover for a CD featuring songs by local people. The collection has yet to be named and suggestions are welcomed.
As proceeds from the sale of this CD have been kindly offered to the two Millstreet Primary Schools, we thought it would be fun if a pupil or group of pupils designed the cover.
◦ You will need to design the front and back using the blank template provided.
◦ Include the following text on the front cover: “Proceeds towards Scoil Mhuire BNS and Presentation National School Millstreet”.
◦ There are no rules for the theme – inspiration can be taken from anywhere – local places, people, nature, school, your imagination….
◦ Once design is finalised the details of the track titles and artists will be added on the back of the album cover.
◦ The winning design will get a credit on the CD and also be used for marketing material and social media platforms.
◦ We need you to submit your entry via a photograph of your design by Friday 24th September to millstreetparentsassoc @ gmail.com (no spaces)
◦ Please keep your original safe in case we need to access it for printing.

Hope you have fun and we look forward to seeing your designs!

Please use the template attached here:

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

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 22nd August 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 22nd August

Back by popular demand is a well worn cliché, but it’s so appropriate for this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’.

Listeners to the programme just can’t get enough of John O’Leary who passed away earlier this year at the age of 98.

Originally from Rathbarry, but living in Cobh, John was a member of an Garda Siochana from 1942 to 1955, all of which was spent in Dublin. 

This week we go on the beat with John to meet Brendan Behan, Margaret Pearse, Boxing Cyclone the reclusive Bill Warren and partying with the wonderful trading ladies of Moore Street.

Dublin wit and characters, through the eyes of a Cork Garda. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

Four Nights debut EP ‘Bed’

Congrats to Tommy Buckley going by name ‘Four Nights‘ who last week release his debut EP ‘Bed’. BreakingTunes says: “It  has all of the hallmarks of 80’s pop, and takes influence from the likes of The 1975, LANY, and Nightly. Big soundscapes, splashy snares and clean vocals are masterfully produced by Diffusion Lab’s Marcin Ciszczon, AKA Emiji.
In February 2020 Tommy set off to travel South East Asia for a year, but was forced to come home only after a month due to the pandemic. Suddenly with a lot of spare time in lockdown, he threw himself completely into music, writing more than 30 songs in a focused two month period.
He released his debut singles (‘Want You Always / Nothing to Say’) in November and quickly gained 100k+ Spotify streams and heavy rotation on national radio. He followed this up with ‘Grow So Cold’ and ‘Not This Time’ which gained placements on the ‘New Pop UK’ and ‘Chilled Pop Hits’ editorial playlists on Spotify. His debut EP ‘Bed’ followed in July.”

Give a listen to the five tracks on the EP at the bottom of this post:

Tommy was also interviewed for the Bellissimo Files on Spin 103. Listen here:

Eily’s Report 1st June

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

Canon John got our month of June off to a good start this morning by blessing Holy Water at the beginning of ten o’clock Mass. The June month is starting off on a very encouraging note with a  few lovely sunny days behind us and hopefully lots more to come. The fine days set the whole world around us up a gear or two, with farmers delving into silage making at every waking hour and families doing everything they could to make the most of the sun. Bar-b-cues were going  full belt in many gardens, the sound of children playing, filling the air, while others took to travelling out a bit, relishing their new found extended limits. We were fortunate enough to take on the Shrone  Lake District where a glorified goat path inches you along the craggy terrain and where the slow pace gives you time to study the rocks and streams in detail and the calm lake almost hidden at the foot of the mighty Paps. For the driver it takes full concentration but for the lucky passenger, sheer joy. There are places where you can stop, converse with other brave people like yourself ,or young couples doing it all on foot. Our final pitch took us all the way to the top of the  down hill  and the descent into the renowned Claydagh Valley and the exit into the busy main Killarney to Macroom Road. How great it is that due to modern ways that those of us in advanced years can enjoy the beauty of these remote gems as well as those who can do it all on shanks mare.

Road to Killarney to Close for two weeks

The diversion to Killarney from Millstreet will be through Macroom, so what is normally 33kms from Millstreet to Killarney, now becomes ~63km each way. Traffic goin from Mallow to Killarney on the N72 will also be diverted through Millstreet, so expect increased traffic in town for the two weeks.
