Millstreet Calendar 2020 – Just a Few Need Recall

In a small few cases of the recently launched Millstreet Calendar 2020 a printing error has been discovered in that the months of February and November are missing and there is an advertisement for some business in another part of Ireland.   If you discover that you have bought one of these incorrectly printed Calendars please contact Millstreet Community Council and a replacement will be provided.   Apologies regarding this but it only relates to a very small number of the popular Calendar.  (S.R.)

Dan, Mary, Margaret and Noel encourage everyone to support the Millstreet Calendar 2020 Project. Tap on the image to enlarge. (S.R.)
