Eily’s Report – 23rd Aug. 2016

Dia is Muire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my weekly Report from Millstreet.eily1-150x150[1]

The down turn in the weather over the weekend did much to spoil a lot of carefully planned events. The residents of Drishane put many hours of planning into their first ever Garden Fete. It was going to be a gala outdoor presentation with fun and games and food and music and crafts of many countries on the list but alas the continuous rains forced the entire programme to be held indoors. However not to be outdone the organisers still forged ahead and put on the best show they could.

In the dining area there was a wide variety of foods representing many lands ,Pakistan, Lithuania , South Africa ,to name but a few. And the people were there to serve the food,say what it contained , and tell a little about from where it came. Further down in the function room there were displays of different crafts from pottery to bead craft and many other things in between. [read more …] “Eily’s Report – 23rd Aug. 2016”

Dia is Muire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my weekly report .

It’s Showtime here again here this week for the Millstreet International Horse Show which will run from today Tuesday August 9th to Sunday 14th. All the signs which lined the approach roads to town for the past two World Events have been left in place as we once again welcome the cream of the world’s Bloodstock to the World Class Green Glens arena. It is no surprise now to see the mighty Horse Wagons thunder into town. It all kicks off today and comes to a mighty climax on Sunday with the customery Grand Prix. Please come and see this wonderful spectacle. All services , such as restaurant ,local car parking, toilet facilities etc. will be available.

Admission is free and because of that people can drop in and out at any time.

Once more I want to wish the Duggan Family and their staff every success and God’s Blessing for the Show.

Next up will be the Millstreet/Drishane Castle International Horse Trials on Aug. 24-28.

I’d like to extend a fond Céad Míle Fáilte to all those who are visiting us at the moment and hope they enjoy their stay. [read more …] “Eily’s Report – 9th Aug. 2016”
