Performed by the Junior Infants at the Presentation National School Millstreet 
The fields on either side of the Finnow cloaked in gray
And the turkey cooking for dinner on Christmas Day
And farmers say the frost is quite severe
But such expected at this time of year.
The housebound cows bellow for silage or hay
And little children with their new toys play
And robins by the back door wait for bread
On Christmas Day they too like to be fed.
The church bell ring in nearby Millstreet Town
For the last mass the seconds tolling down
And last night snow fell high on Clara hill
And Coomlogane bare to the winter chill
Don’t forget Santa Claus is appearing at The Pub in Carriganima on today Sunday Dec 17th at 3pm. This year he is arriving by Horseback, so why not come along to Carriganima on Sunday to meet the great Man himself. He is looking forward to meeting Everybody on the day.

Fair play to all that braved the Mushera Mountain Climb on this wet and windy Christmas morning, in aid of our local Reach Out Cancer Support. Not for the faint heartded as the rain was horizontal on top of the mountain, but here’s a few of those that went up:
There was no hanging around at the top, and only this small group was there when we arrived Clara and Ainsey were collecting donations for ROCS at the start of the climbJohn Dineen, John Twomey, Darragh Twomey and Michael O’Riordan were having a break in some shelter
One side of the potato-pits was white with frost –
How wonderful that was, how wonderful!
And when we put our ears to the paling-post
The music that came out was magical.
The light between the ricks of hay and straw
Was a hole in Heaven’s gable. An apple tree
With its December-glinting fruit we saw –
O you, Eve, were the world that tempted me
To eat the knowledge that grew in clay
And death the germ within it! Now and then
I can remember something of the gay
Garden that was childhood’s. Again

On Friday, 23rd Dec. 2016 we went on a brief tour of Millstreet Town so as to share glimpses of the countdown to Christmas. We got to meet Niall O’Connor and Joe Fitzgerald at Supervalu and we met Sgt. Paul Lynch on duty. Fr. Jim Kennelly was visiting his native Millstreet. We share the many colourful scenes in Minor Row, The Square, Main Street, Church Street, The Bridge and West End. We’ve lots more to share in an upcoming feature but we hope that you will now enjoy almost 90 images of Christmas 2016 in our native hometown. We view the first six here and then continue with the main feature where you will be able to see them enlarged when you click on the various pictures. Happy Viewing and a very Happy Christmas to All. (S.R.) And now we continue with over 80 Christmas views of Millstreet. [read more …] “A Christmas Tour of Millstreet Town 2016”
