Good morning, Patricia and greetings, dear Listeners, from Millstreet in Co. Cork, Ireland mentioned for the benefit of our many online Listeners worldwide on the c103 website. Following such a severe Winter, it is so wonderfully uplifting to now be experiencing the onset of Spring and a greener Ireland with daffodils beginning to appear. In this our 1,005th Regional Report we hear about Daffodil Day, an Easter Vintage event, upcoming “Round the Fireside” features, an LTV2 exclusive, website updates ….. and there’s more – much more!
But we begin on a sad note as we remember the late Mary O’Connor of “Duneden”, Boherbue who along with the late Tadhg O’Driscoll established the very popular Millstreet Gramophone Circle some years ago. Mary who went to her Eternal Reward on Sunday, was such a true Lady of the highest calibre who shared many musical gems with numerous Gramophone Circles from her fascinating collection of treasured recordings. For almost thirty years Mary had dedicatedly devoted her great musical talents and sincere energy to the Boherbue Church Choir. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.
The Corkman website has from today become a pay-per-view site. They are to charge for content per article / per week / per month. This will probably mean that we won’t be pointing you to articles of interest on the Corkman website, so both millstreet.ie and the Corkman will be worse off for this change in business strategy.

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.
