As reported last week, Millstreet Country Park have officially opened their new water feature, in the presence of the Belgian ambassador to Ireland Mr Robert Devriese, former President of the European Parliment Pat Cox, current Minister of Education Batt O’Keeffe, staff and visitors to the Park.

From early in the day there was music with the local Comhaltas Group playing, and followed after by the Duhallow Choral Society. Everyone gathered for the official opening at 5:30 with some words from the speakers and then Mr Devriese pressed the button and after a short time, the water flowed from the top of the fountain. It was a wonderful sight to behold. Afterwards, there were refreshments for everyone.

The Corkman has a report on the opening as did Eily Buckley in her Regional Report 977 this week. Also reported on by the Cork Independent.

The showcase square was created for the Universal Exposition held in the city in 1910. It featured a Park and a monumental staircase with cascading waterfalls descending the gentle slope from the Place Royal down to Emperor Boulevard”

Every once in a while you come across a place that puts your head in a spin and in all the confusion you just want to laugh. This is a very odd place. Very, very odd. After seeing a handful of pics in a picture library of a stone circle with some unusual looking arrangements around it, there was nothing else to be done only track this strange place down and see it for myself …
