Duhallow Community Food Services

2010 January - RSS Supervisor Tim Ring making deliveries on foot when the van could go no further in the snow in Kilcorney Co Cork

Duhallow Community Food Services is an award winning community enterprise providing a subsidised meal service to those that are not in a position to cook for themselves and are isolated because of age, illness, lack of transport or other disadvantages that result in living in a rural area. In order to supplement the cost of producing the “meals on wheels” service, Duhallow Community Food Services expanded the business into two other key facets, bakery and contract catering. For family and community events, celebrations and gatherings, Duhallow Community Food Services offer a selection of meal options. Typically this service is used for christenings, communions, confirmations, home entertaining and wider community events.

Lost Camera


A Fujifilm S5600 Camera in a black leather camera case was lost in Millstreet around June 17th, somewhere between the Playground in the Town Park and Tanyard Wood. Contains rechargable AA batteries and 1Gb memory, but more important are the photos. If you know where it is, please contact 086-3560505.

The camera was returned thanks to one of our Polish residents.

Genealogists and family historians all over will be delighted to hear that the 1901 census of Ireland has been online for some two weeks now. There are only two complete censuses relating to Ireland: those conducted in 1901 and 1911.  The 1911 census went online just under a year ago, and contains slightly more information about each individual, but the 1901 census includes the following:

  • Name and surname
  • Relation to head of family
  • Religious profession
  • Education
  • Age
  • Sex
  • Rank, profession or occupation
  • Marital status
  • Where born
  • Irish Language
  • Specified illnesses

The census is hosted on the nationalarchives.ie website, and you can navigate the Census in two ways:

  1. Using the Search facility on the site, or by
  2. Browsing Millsteet’s District Electoral Divisions of the time (map below): Coomlogane, Drishane, Keale, Caherbarnagh, Cullen, Derragh, Crinnaloo, Rathcool, Skagh, Kilcorney , Rosnalea (listed as Kilcarney).

Note: The town of Millstreet is split down the middle (at the bridge) by Coomlogane and Drishane DED’s.

Frank Kirke Party

On Friday, 18th June 2010 Frank Kirke, musician supreme and dedicated teacher (in Newbridge, Co. Kildare) arrived in Millstreet for what he thought would be a quiet family get together at the Wallis Arms Hotel. Instead there was a surprise 50th Birthday Party arrranged where not only family but also many friends has assembled to honour this true gentleman who formerly lived at West End, Millstreet and was a wonderfully talented member of Millstreet Pipe Band.   After a splendid meal and speech the night continued with a marvellous music session in McCarthy’s Bar at the Square. Here we share some images below of the very happy occasion.   Special thanks to Millstreet website loyal visitor, Pádraig O’Driscoll for alerting us to this most pleasant and uplifting occasion.

Fathers day at Millstreet Country Park and Restaurant

Hi all,

Father’s Day is virtually upon us and, if this takes you by surprise or you had forgotten the exact date then Millstreet Country Park is here to tell you that Sunday 20th June is the one to remember.

Father’s and Grandfather’s sadly usually end up with generic gifts for Father’s Day from their loved ones, simply because of the lack of real options for Father’s Day gifts. Dads can be tough to buy for, and depending on their interests, there may be no obvious choice.  So how about something more thoughtful than a tie for Dear Old Dad this year?

Fancy doing something different? Then why not take your Dad outside this year? Why not visit Millstreet Country Park and plan a number of Father’s Day activities and make this special day an enjoyable and memorable event for him and for the whole family.

Standing up for the local Hospitals

Michael Creed TD warned the Minister for Health Mary Harney of the dire consequences of closing Community Hospitals in Macroom, Kanturk, Millstreet and Dunmanway.  Speaking during a Dáil debate on Health Deputy Creed said:

Community-based medical services can thwart the onward march to acute hospital facilities if properly structured and delivered. A key component of that is community nursing facilities – the district hospitals. In my constituency, there is Kanturk, Millstreet and Macroom District Hospitals and on the fringes of my constituency, there is Dunmanway District Hospital. I see a threat hanging over those district hospitals. When concluding the debate, I would like the Minister to reassure me about their future.
