Road-signs for a charity truck event taking place on Sunday 31st October in the Green Glens Arena, were erected around the locality during the week. One of these signs has gone missing! It was placed at the Millstreet Junction by the Sandpit Bar on Tuesday evening and had been removed by 5pm Wednesday. We contacted the County Council and they had not removed the sign. We would appreciate if anyone with information could contact 087 2030518 or better again, if whoever has removed it, would be kind enough to return it. It is after all, a charity event for two sick little girls.
Four paramedics at the National Ambulance Service Base in Millstreet, have in the interest of safety, hygiene, desperation and a little touch of madness to shave their heads for charity in the near future.
They would appreciate any sponsorship and donations with gratitude to help their four nominated charities: The Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind, Marymount Hospice, Cork Penny Dinners, and Crumlin Children’s Hospital. Donations can be made on their Go Fund Me page. [read more …] “Millstreet Ambulance – “Brave the Shave””

A special message from Eileen O’Riordan. “I’m just wondering if you have seen the window of the Lighthouse at The Square, Millstreet? The charity “Christian Aid” is 70 years helping the poor and needy around the world. With full premission from Colemans we have decided to have a Cake Sale outside Coleman’s shop this Saturday (16th May 2015) starting at 10.30 am. The wider community have come on board too in the baking of cakes. All the money raised for Christian Aid is going to Nepal. So come along if you can and tell your friends too. I think it’s a very worthy cause . God Bless, Eileen”.
