Eily’s Report – 22nd November

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly Report.

What a lovely start to any week, the sound of children singing. Monday November 21 was Presentation Day and all the pupils from our Presentation Convent  National School along with their many teachers and minders crowded into the church for the special Mass which is said every year to celebrate the important occasion and because of the association with the Community School some students from there also attended accompanied by the Principle Pól Ó Síodhcháin and religion teacher John Magee. The readings and the music and singing were all done by the children and after Mass bouquets of flowers were laid at the Nuns Graveyard representing both schools. Big changes from my day when we would go around the treelined ‘walks’  at the back of the school/convent singing the praises of the Lord and afraid that we’d put any leg wrong.

Important Meeting – Millstreet Comhaltas Branch

Important Meeting – Wednesday 23rd November

– Millstreet Parish Centre – 8pm

The AGM of Millstreet Comhaltas Branch was held on 17th November. As the only people in attendance were the outgoing committee, it was impossible to elect new officers to enable the branch to continue.

Pre-lockdowns, the Comhaltas branch was a thriving organisation and its activities received positive feedback from participants, parents and the Millstreet community in general. It is a valuable resource for those interested in trying out a musical instrument, progressing their skills or learning to sing and dance.

Children and young people can grow in self-confidence and gain important social skills through participating in these cultural activities. And it’s not just the children who benefit – there is a lot of fun in being part of a
community of music-makers and dancers!

The outgoing committee has served for the last number of years – but are unable to continue in their roles for various reasons. As well, organisations need change and it is time for new faces and fresh ideas. If the
organisation breaks down, classes will not be able to continue and those interested in entering Fleadh competitions will not have a local club to represent. Millstreet’s legendary Féile Cheoil may also be lost.
It would be very regrettable to lose such a valuable community resource due to a lack of volunteers. We would encourage parents of the children who are availing of the current classes – or indeed any members
of the community with an interest in music, song and dance to come along. The retired committee are more than willing to support any incoming volunteers.

To this end, a meeting to discuss the future of the branch will take place on Wednesday 23rd November in Millstreet Parish Centre at 8pm. We would stress that this is not an AGM where people will feel under
pressure to accept a role – it will be an opportunity to ask questions and get a feel for what is involved.

We would love to see you there.

Millstreet students going on Pilgrimage to Lourdes

Millstreet students going on Pilgrimage to Lourdes as helpers at Easter 2023

Following a gap of three years, the Irish Pilgrimage Trust are finally able to hold their pilgrimage to Lourdes at Easter 2023.  The other great news is that two 5th year students from Millstreet Community School will be going along as helpers with Group 126. They are Holly Dunne and Rachel Dineen.

The tradition of students from MCS going to Lourdes as helpers with the Irish Pilgrimage Trust goes back ten years or so, but the COVID pandemic brought things to a halt just a month before the 2020 trip was due to take place.

As was the case in the past, the aim is to cover accommodation and travel costs for the two students (€790/person) with all extra funds being passed onto Group 126 (who the girls will be travelling with).  Each group is meant to raise the funds to cover the costs of all the young people with special needs who travel with them to Lourdes.

The first fundraising event are two bake sales which will take place in the Millstreet Parish Centre on Saturday 17th December after the 6.15pm Mass and on Sunday 18th December after the 11.30am Mass.  Your support for these events would be gratefully appreciated.
