A magnificent Sacred Space has been created at St. Patrick’s Church to especially mark the upcoming Papal Visit to Ireland by Pope Francis. Coordinated by Canon John Fitzgerald, P.P. and Parish Secretary, Sharon Lane the wonderful feature is further enhanced by the work of Millstreet Men’s Shed (crafting the very beautiful tree), the photography of Fr. James McSweeney (superb image of the Cross on Clara Mountain) and the splendid art design of Declan Crowley of Milltech. The overall theme is World Meeting of Families 21 – 26 August 2018. Here we share a selection of images illustrating the Sacred Space and also showing further Papal features within the Sanctuary. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

We were delighted to record three wonderful Birthday Celebrations at Millstreet Day Care Centre today. Coordinator Mary Feeley introduced us to Julia Murphy who is celebrating her 104th Birthday and who sang for us all a beautiful rendition of “My Donegal Shore” without even having to use glasses when referring to the words of the song! Joining Julia was Kathleen Moynihan and Peg Tarrant. A very Happy Birthday to all three splendid ladies. Adding to the occasion there was a superb musical presentation by pupils from Presentation N.S., Millstreet. A cheque of €500.00 was also presented to the Centre by the Pupils and Teacher Nora Murphy as the result of a recent Bake Cake Sale at the School. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

While many of us are still snowbound (and trying to overcome a cold) thankfully a thaw is near. Here with some 36 images we hope to share the magic of the past few days although undoubtedly days which created challenges for many. Our base is Mount Leader where the kindness of neighbours delivering provisions and delicious soup is so hugely impressive. Thankfully also electrical power has been maintained and the water supply continues to flow. While my cat liked to roll in the snow she was delighted to be indoors in the warmth of my home. And she has been great company during this amazing time. Transmission of Church TV (although somewhat affected by weather conditions) is brilliant and a great advantage to the parish. So let’s begin our “magical tour”. Click on the images to enlarge especially the later selection in “read more”. Enjoy! (S.R.)
And we continue to share 24 more images of our “magical tour”. To access these just click on “read more” and also click on the pictures to enlarge. (S.R.)

Áine Collins Statement on Millstreet Hospital – Tuesday 23rd February
Firstly I would like to assure everyone that Millstreet Hospital will continue to play a vital part in our community. The hospital is very much part of our Capital Investment Plan and it will improve and extend the Hospital. The funding we secured of €5.75 million to invest in the facilities of the hospital confirms this.
The funds are going to towards a much needed extension to the hospital, which will improve the facilities including the respite care beds. But with all renovations, there will be distributions and this will impact on the respite care beds and any patients needing respite care will be accommodated in nearby community hospitals and nursing homes to cause as little disruption to patients and their families as possible.
