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

The Month of Our Blessed Lady is moving on and the Holy Rosary is being recited at cross roadside Grottos and indeed at our own Tubrid Well regularly since the month began and will continue till the end. The annual Mass will be said at Tubrid Well on Friday May 27 at 7.30. Further to that Masses will be said at all of our Cemeteries during the month of June. Please keep an eye out for the dates.  While on the subject, I’ve been asked to mention that the toilets at Tubrid Well are not open which is a great inconvenience  to many who go to  pray there.

Active Community Walking Programmes

Millstreet has been included in a number of Active Community Walking Programmes kicking off across Cork communities during May. The Get Ireland Walking Active Community Walking Programme runs for 8 weeks and aims to support the creation of vibrant walking communities throughout Ireland.

The programme facilitator will work with communities to increase the capacity and potential of people to become more active through walking. The programme places an emphasis on sustainability so members are given the skills to continue coordinating their walking group after our qualified facilitator steps away after 8 weeks!

The group walks will hopefully take place on the same day and time each week for the 8 weeks, but this is subject to discussion with your walking facilitator. The exact meeting locations will be sent to you in an introductory email before the start of the programme.

The first meeting will take place in Millstreet Day Centre towards the end of May – click on the link below to book your place:

Eily’s Report – 10th May

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

The Merry Month of May is not very merry today (Monday) with rain falling instead of the twenty degrees heatwave which was forecasted. However we must be thankful for what we get, because the grass and flowers won’t grow without the rain and there’s no more to be said. I like to use the wet weather  to replenish my stocks of rain water. We cannot store up the sun, but we can store up rain. Old habits die hard and in olden times when every drop of the precious stuff had to be drawn in buckets from the nearest stream for general use and perhaps further away from the nearest well for making the tae or soup or boiling fruit and so on. So the custom of placing containers in strategic places to grab the liquid Manna from Heaven made sense. To put a barrel under the shoot came natural or many barrels under many shoots to make it better. Wetting the feeding for pigs, leaving pans of water out for fowl  to drink, water to wash the spuds for the dinner all took their toll on what was in the barrel and when the store was empty there was nothing for it but take the long trek with a bucket in each hand to resume the long haul. From watching those before us we learned to save and spare, and use and reuse. It became a habit ,and gave us a great sense of achievement if we succeeded in our quest. For example if the stores under the spout were not still drained out before the next rainfall we’d be delighted that we made it to the next re-fill. I’m still like that today and count my tubs full of rainwater as a free gift from God every time I dip in my watering can.
