Encouraging Millstreet Website Support Received

Today, while shopping in Millstreet an uplifting further gesture of support for our work on the Millstreet Website was received.   Following our recent church gate collection for the combined funding of both our Museum and Website it’s totally encouraging to note the response our appeal has received from loyal followers of our Website living elsewhere in Ireland and across the world in such a generous and concrete manner.  The relative of one such kind follower (who wishes to remain anonymous) donated €50.00 towards the support of our website.  Míle buíochas for this much appreciated gesture.   This contribution will be added to our overall fund as we continue to share such news as the following:

Millstreet Community Singers together with Tom and Noreen Meaney joined us at Freemount Heritage Centre for two recordings of Jimmy Reidy's "Round the Fireside" series which we were asked to coordinate during which a special tribute is paid to the late Tom Goggin.  The first programme on c103 local radio is scheduled to be broadcast on Monday, 29th Aug. 2016 at 9.50pm while the second one is being transmitted on Monday, 5th Sept. at 9.50pm.

World Suicide Prevention Day takes place on September 10th. On that night there is a world-wide campaign to light a candle near a window at 8 PM to show your support for suicide prevention to remember a lost loved one and for the survivors of suicide.

Changes to the C103 Regional Reports

Some may not have noticed, but at the end of Eily’s Regional Report this week she notes: “Please take note that my weekly report will no longer be heard live on radio, except for a 30 seconds snippet, which will be heard at 10.30 on Tuesday mornings. After that my full report can only be accessed online, C103.ie. I believe that all the reports from round the county will be run starting at 10.30 on Tuesdays. I am sorry for all the people who aren’t online. However the new change will mean that people at home and all over the world will now be able to get the reports live from wherever they are at any time. Poor consolation I know for all those who don’t have computers. Modern methods always come at a price, unfortunately.”
