Remembering Catherine’s Visits to Millstreet

From the Pictorial Archives of Millstreet Museum we share a memory of the late Catherine Linehan’s many visits to Millstreet from San Francisco, USA during which there was always a royal welcome at her home in Main Street, Millstreet for many a wonderfully happy gathering of Relatives and Friends.  We also include the caption from the Summer 2000 photograph.

Millstreet Pictorial Updates – 11th Oct. 2020

Our latest Millstreet Pictorial Updates places focus on the beauty of Autumn locally and internationally.   We include a feature from today’s “Sunday Business Post” which makes a very important reference to Scoil Mhuire, Millstreet BNS.   And we hope that someone might be able to share information about the late Mr. John J. Campion about whom Bill Browne has written in this week’s “Corkman” indicating that John was born in Millstreet.   And we recall yesterday’s Beatification of the young Carlo Acutis in Assisi, Italy yesterday (Sat. 10/10/2020) who died at the age of 15 in 2006. Tap on the images to enlarge.   Finally, a reminder that C103’s “Round the Fireside” on Monday, 12th Oct. 10.00 to 11.00 pm will focus on Millstreet when Presenter supreme, Jimmy Reidy will broadcast one of his many past programmes from his extensive Audio Archives.  (S.R.)

Autumn colours at an international level!

A very obliging tree abroad!

We share a selection of images reflecting recent updates in the Millstreet area.   Yesterday we featured a package delivered to Millstreet Museum.   Before we could reveal its content we had to make the local Gardaí aware of its content and to seek permission to share images of the historic item.   We can now reveal what we received from a very kind anonymous Donor who sent the following note:
