Millstreet Town Park is committed to increasing biodiversity in our area. We are currently not mowing certain areas of the Town Park to allow wildflowers to grow and to encourage the return of butterflies and bees. This pilot project will be reviewed in the near future, to determine if these wildflower areas should be reduced or further developed. We thank Denis Hickey of Millstreet Town Park Committee for this notice. (S.R.)
Russell Murphy from Australia with Murphy Family roots in Ballydaly has superbly created a post card of a recent poem by Francis Duggan and an image we captured during the week in the Clara Road area. Tap on the card to enlarge. Many thanks to Russell who is a Loyal Follower of the Millstreet Website and of Cork Music Station. (S.R.)
Caherbarnagh (or Cahirbearna) is part of the chain of mountains which stretches westward from Millstreet to Killarney. Its name means “the hill of the four gaps”.
