Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a Cairde and welcome to news report 2004 from Millstreet.

Fondest greetings dear listeners dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this cold but mild Eve of St Patricks Day.

Well our Community Council Awards Social which was held at the Wallis Arms Hotel on Friday night, lived up the all expectations. There was an unprecedented demand for tickets, with many of the committee giving up theirs to accommodate others. A wonderful four course meal was served, then the presentations and speeches went ahead, ably headed by Councillor Noel Buckley and the rest of the night was danced away to the beautiful music of the Celts. Look up the papers and our website for all the details. Many thanks to all who helped in any way to make this important event so successful and enjoyable.

Ballydaly’s Gaelic Football Glory Days

I’ve heard that Ballydaly does not have a football team
Which puts a cloud on Tommy Tucker’s dream
That they might win Duhallow for third time
And give some bard another chance to rhyme.
.
They won their first Duhallow title more than forty years ago
Some time back in the fifties that I know
Though of my dates I’m not too very clear
I think ’twas fifty seven was the year.
.
When Ballydaly had their first big win
And their footballers were celebtated men
And John Twomey wrote of Ballydaly Boys
And west of Millstreet bonfires lit the skies.

Millstreet’s Last Old Fashioned Rhymer

I may die as I live without much to my name
To be Millstreet’s last old fashioned rhymer my one claim to minor fame
The word poet never does apply to such as me
The stuff I pen born to mortality.
.
From the countryside by Clara I’ve been too long away
I would feel a stranger in Millstreet today
A stranger in Claraghatlea and Millstreet Town
Where I once did know of some local renown.

Genealogy – Leaders

We are an active, retired couple visiting Millstreet for the second time while staying for a few days at Killarney. I know a great deal about my ancestors, the Leaders, who were from Millstreet, my ancestor owning the Leader house on Clara Mountain which was in a dilapidated state when we visited in 2003. I know of no-one actually living in Millstreet with the Leader name. My third cousin told me that I would be related to all of them there to some degree. I would like to meet some of them to say “hullo.” Way back, the Leaders and the O’Keefes were related as well. Anyone out there doing genealogy? Would you like to make contact?
