Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
Buíochas le Dia, no death to report from Covid 19 yesterday, for the first time since it all began back in March. The first person died of the Covid 19 in Ireland on March 21st. It is indeed great news. But it didn’t just happen. It was made to happen by the efforts of every one in the country. Those at the top took on a parent role and guided us through troubled waters, the likes we have never seen before. But we mustn’t forget that the battle still goes on and the hand washing, the social distancing, the staying at home as much as possible still goes on. Easy enough for me and my equals, but the young people are like greyhounds at the track, snapping at the gate to get out, it will take all the strength they have to keep a lid on it as they are slowly inched out to freedom. They have our prayers as we longingly await the first hug from loving grand/great grand children, other family members and friends. But it will come, le cúnamh Dé.

We have been asked to tell people to Please Slow Down and Drive With Care in Tanyard Wood and other estates around town, as a lot more children are out playing, and walking these days. For most it’s their only source of freedom, and the speed of some cars is scary. The last thing anyone wants now is a tragedy, especially because someone is being reckless.
Thank u all so much for an amazing first week at Kall & Dyyne, it has been unbelievable. As I just started out going day by day to see how we went offering a takeaway service, I’ve had complete sell outs ever single day since I opened so its definitely been needed in the town I think 🙏🙏
So here’s to the start of another successful week. Thank you all again for calling & supporting me it’s very much appreciated 😘 – Sharon
During this Covid-19 pandemic, it has often been compared to the Influenza Pandemic of 1918/1919. We were wondering how it affected this area, so we delved into the records to try to figure it out.
Surprisingly, what we found was that there was no big spike in deaths locally at that time compared to the surrounding years (see the graph below **). So we though that maybe it didn’t affect the Millstreet area at all … but we were wrong.
When we looked at the case by case influenza and pneumonia figures (flu was often misdiagnosed as pneumonia) in the death registers, we saw that around March 1919, there was a big jump in numbers when about 20 died from flu and pneumonia. This coincided with what was referred to as the third wave of that pandemic in Ireland, and is easily seen by the yellow spike in the graph below. The smaller orange spike (November 1918) also coincided with the second wave of the pandemic in Ireland.
In total, we think about 30 people died locally died from it over the duration of that pandemic.
Some families here got destroyed by it … Twomeys of Islandhill lost 3 in a week, Sullivans of Umeraboy lost three in a month, Butlers of Liscahane lost two in a fortnight. The one very surprising thing though is that most of the deaths were people that died locally were in their 20’s and 30’s, which we were unaware of but was a feature of that disease.
If that many died in the spring of 1919, then about 1,000 must have been infected locally at the time. That’s a lot of sick people.
Below we first look at the disease in Ireland, and also we break down the death registers to see those that died from it locally, when they got it, and where they were from: [read more …] “The Influenza Pandemic of 1918-1919 – How it affected Millstreet”
We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information re this Sunday evening’s programme (24th May 2020) on C103 at 7. (S.R.)
On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene speaks to a Consultant Oncologist who specialises in Prostate Cancer and a singer-songwriter who quotes Bob Dylan and Bono as his influences.
It’s worth mentioning that these are not two different people, but one person. Throughout his life, Professor Joe o’Sullivan has been committed to improving the lives of patients with prostate cancer, through research and innovation. His research programme is now recognised as a centre of excellence. In between he has recorded three albums, the latest of which, ‘Instead of many shades of blue’, has just been released.

I was wondering if anyone on this forum can shed any light my Mother’s ancestors please?
She tells me that her Mother (Elizabeth Leader) was from Mill Street Co.Cork. Not sure of the full picture but my Mother moved to another area of Co.Cork when she was young and was raised with another family. She doesn’t really have any recollection of either of her parents. My Mother’s Father was Michael Bransfield from Middleton.
