Masks and visors have clearly become part of everyday life in Millstreet and far beyond in protection from COVID-19. We visit St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet where we meet two of the wonderfully dedicated Volunteers sanitising the seats after Mass and we also visit Café Aroma in Minor Row where social distancing measures are superbly in place.

Coordinated by Millstreet INTO – and very especially by Joan O’Mahony and Con Meade – a truly impressive Presentation Ceremony took place on Tuesday, 29th May 2018 at Café Aroma, Minor Row, Millstreet to honour Susan O’Connor and Mary Lynch who following many dedicated years of teaching at Rathcoole N.S. recently retired. Mary Magner representating the national INTO also addressed the large gathering of Teachers. Accompanying the Retiring Teachers were their husbands Gerry and Der. Noreen, Joan and Staff of Café Aroma prepared a magnificent banquet of delicious food and drinks for the special occasion. Here we share a selection of images which will help to give an idea of the wonderful atmosphere – joyful, relaxing and uplifting where superbly witty addresses by Joan, Mary (Magner), Mary (Lynch) and Susan were delivered. We extend sincere congratulations to Mary and Susan for a long, healthy and very Happy Retirement. Click on the pictures to enlarge. (S.R.) [read more …] “Retirement I.N.T.O.
