From Jane: I am so impressed with Millstreet Country Park.. Today is my first day back since it was reopened .. walking in our beautiful sunshine.. Spectacular.. Quiet something so very special, spiritual even.
Whilst walking I was greeted by the beautiful statues of famous Irish people. This is an addition to park.. Water streams gently flowing, the sounds heavenly.
Then whilst walking towards the visitors centre the sound of music was gently playing in the music garden.
I was told to relax in the stunning area where I was to have my Americano and scone, it was like being on holiday.
We are so lucky to have this beauty here.. here are a few pictures which do not give justice

One can say of Jerry Sheehan in life he has made his mark [read more …] “Where it all began”
