Civic Amenity Sites had not been specifically listed as an essential service nationally and would generally require customers to travel more than the restricted two kilometres.

“What Matters” – I wrote this song at the start of the week on my way home to Millstreet from New York. I had to leave because of what is going on in the world at the moment. I’m lucky in a way because that decision is even harder for others who are facing and will face some very tough times. That unbelievable Irish community will get those people over there through it. As will our communities here. This song describes some tough situations but it is also written in the hope and knowledge that we’re going to come together and support each other through it. It’s an appreciation of everyone’s efforts and bravery. There is gratification growing in me right now for the small things in life and I hope this resonates with some if not many. Stay safe❤️ We can’t share a lot at the moment so it’s pretty safe to share this away mad – Darren Kiely
This is a great opportunity for families to get creative and work as historians!
A time capsule is a historic cache of goods or information, usually intended as a deliberate method of communication with future people, and to help future archaeologists, anthropologists, or historians.
Elizabeth sent us a little positivity this week with this view of Millstreet from Clara Mountain as many locals got out and enjoyed beautiful fresh air. A great way to lift the spirits in these days of social isolation which we are all asked to adhere to. It helps no end that the weather seems to have turned and though cool, little rain is forecast for the next week.
As well as the most popular up and down Clara, here in Millstreet we also have the Clara Loop, Mushera, Comeenatrush, The Duhallow Way (east to west), the Ireland Way (north to south), for the more adventurous, but lots of other areas to walk where it is gentle and safe, like the Town Park, Drishane Road, the Boeing, Tubrid, Donoure, St. John’s Well.
Due to the on-going situation with the spread of the COVID-19 virus & following a directive from the HSE, we will be closing Millstreet Day Centre with immediate effect until further notice. The health & safety of our staff, clients and volunteers is of paramount importance throughout this developing situation.
Our kitchen will remain open & should you need Meals on Wheels delivered to your home or any other information please ring:
Office: (029) 70926
Kitchen: (029) 30998
Marie (manager): 087 9321617
