Millstreet Town Park wishes to express its sincere gratitude to  all organising  members from St John’s  GAA Club, their families and supporters for this fantastic series of fun filled fundraisers. Thank you to  the Community Council for providing  the AstroTurf  pitch free of charge for  the day of the Soccer  Tournament and to  the local businesses who provided spot prizes for these events.  A special thank you  to Connie Hickey of the Bush Bar for sponsoring medals, winning plaques and after event  food for all particpants at both events.  Thank  you to each and every Sráider who participated in any way.  Whether you paid for a quiz table, sponsored a soccer team or purchased raffle tickets, every  Euro counted, thank you.
 Finally, many thanks to Seán Radley for yet again giving up his time and providing the pictorial collage for this  presentation.

Millstreet’s Very Own “Disneyland” Children’s Playground Totally Delights All

Wednesday, 12th Feb. 2020 at Millstreet Town Park on an initial visit to Millstreet New Children’s Playground delighted children from Junior Infants, Presentation N.S., Millstreet and the children from “Curious Minds” Creche gave their 100% approval to what could easily be described as our very own “Disneyland”.   While all the amazing units impressed it was the High Web Net which attracted the most attention!   And we encourage you to experience the state-of-the-art very safe bouncy floor. We met with many members of the Coordinating Committee on the bright morning and we received a wonderful guided tour from Geraldine (née O’Leary) O’Sullivan of all the magical area of this truly magnificent facility which is going to be such a superb benefit for present and future generations of young children here in Millstreet and beyond.    The very generous support received has made this possible.    While the official opening is still in the future the Playground is presently open daily during daylight hours.   Contractors Browne Brothers of Carrigadrohid must take a huge bow on completing such a fascinating facility to the very highest standards.   Here we share 22 images from our visit to this magical location on Wednesday morning.   Tap on the pictures to enlarge.  (S.R.)

Dedicated Committee Member Geraldine explains:  

“The Contractors have finished the playground, our insurance is arranged and I’m delighted to share with you that we passed and are in receipt of our safety certificate 2 weeks ahead of time. In fact the completed project is some 2 months ahead of the original finish date.  It’s great that on this Wednesday morning we are open .  So very exciting for the children. We have a few remaining thank you notes to issue.  The IRD Duhallow representative visited us on Friday and advised that they had been closely following the Playground Project on Millstreet.ie. He commented on the fantastic community forum that you and your team host and support for the people of Millstreet.
He also commented on the widespread backing from the overall community was really uplifting – from the volunteers running fundraising, the variety and number of events taking place , the involvement of children, clubs, businesses and the communication updates via our community website to the public was a perfect example of the community working together for the rural development that IRD stands and strives for. He also commented that this was some of the fastest fundraising efforts for a community of our size and with the €120,000 spend we now really have a top class playground.”  Below we share 13 more images.
