Eily’s Report – 5th June

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a Chairde and welcome.

The beautiful weather over the weekend brought a mixture of joy and sadness as is always the case. Lives were lost both on road and water and our sympathy goes out to all involved. The month of June opened with a mighty thunder storm and flash floods that ripped roads from Mushera Mountain to town of Millstreet and images of the phenomenon were flashed across the globe as it occurred. But there were no reports, locally of damage to people or property and for that we must be grateful.

The annual Mass planned for St.Mary’s Cemetery on Friday evening, had to be moved to the parish church, and the waiting crowds just had time to make their escape before the torrents began.

Murphy’s Furniture Closing Down Sale

“We’re sorry to say that ‘Murphy’s Furniture’ will cease trading in the coming weeks.

After 50 years of trading in the West End, it is with heavy hearts that we made this decision. We are very grateful for the valuable support we have enjoyed over the decades from you, all of our customers, suppliers, and business counterparts. We have greatly enjoyed being part of this network, which has been a happy and rewarding experience for us. We’ll try to thank as many of you as we can in person over the coming months.

Our thanks go in particular to our most trusted, loyal, and hard-working employee and friend, Petra Dietz. Since joining us over three years ago, Petra has brought her enthusiasm and positive disposition to our business.

However, times change, and other interests beckon. As a family we wish to start another tradition, delving into the work of full time farming and breeding pedigree Angus cattle which we’ve been doing on a part-time basis for the past few years.

Our closing down sale will start on Tuesday 5th June. Please continue to check out our website, murphysfurniture.ie, and our facebook page for all of our offerings. We look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks.

While we are sad to be going, it is good to have been here.”
