    Historian and Author, Jack Lane at Millstreet Museum in 1998.

    Geraldine Goggin with one of the two hugely important Millstreet Posters which she has kindly presented to Millstreet Museum in memory of the late Michael and Matthew Murphy.
    We believe the year of this magnificent Poster is either 1960 or 1965. Perhaps someone who attended the historic occasion at the “Star” Ballroom might confirm the correct year.
    A wonderful “West End Cinema” Poster from 1973 which was the year that the Cinema closed. For years we were hoping to acquire for Millstreet Museum one of these precious Posters. Earlier Posters were narrower. If anyone finds such Posters we would be so very glad to make a copy of such Posters for archival purposes.   Many thanks to Geraldine Goggin for this great Poster.

    Mark Keane’s truly amazing winning goal for Cork on Sunday.

“In The Light of Other Days” by Margaret O’Donoghue Sullivan – Splendid Autobiography

“In The Light of Other Days” by Margaret O’Donoghue Sullivan 

“In the Light of Other Days” is an autobiography from Margaret O’Donoghue Sullivan and documents her childhood growing up in rural Ireland.

Margaret lived on a farm with her parents and siblings and the love and importance of family was at the heart of this. The book contains fondly recalled events and stories during the author’s childhood as well as detailing the changing face of farming during the industrialisation of Ireland and of Ireland’s rich history, infused with evocative poetry.

The book is available in Wordsworth Millstreet, Easons bookshop Killarney, Eagers bookshop Killarney, Amazon. It’s a great read for adults and also for children.

We thank Margaret of Rathduane for presenting a copy of her splendid recently published book to Millstreet Museum.  It was the very well known Tom McSweeney who recently launched the Book in Killarney.  Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

Book Launch Success

Here we share a selection of pictures from the very successful Book Launch of Gerard O’Meara’s “Magic Moments” which took place at the Hibernian Hotel, Mallow on 14th July 2010.   The book was officially launched by Paddy Carleton in the presence of a capacity and very appreciative audience.

“Magic Moments” Book Launch

On Wednesday,  14th July 2010 (Bastille Day),  supreme photographer Gerard O’Meara’s fascinating book of enormously interesting photographs of the 1960s, ’70s and 80s relating mainly to the Mallow area, will be launched after 8.00 p.m. at the Hibernian Hotel, Mallow. In a splendid foreword to Gerard’s book, the renowned Declan Hassett writes: “There is an innate sense of decency about Gerard O’Meara. He brings to life, and to his chosen profession, photography, that natural awareness of the importance of those with whom he comes in contact in his work as a “recorder of local history” through the camera lens.” The superb book is available in Mallow at Philip’s Bookshop, Katie’s and Monument House. We wish Gerard every success with this highly significant publication – guaranteed to be in huge demand and a best seller.
