“Olympic” Style Fitness at Millstreet Town Park!

"Olympic" style fitness at Millstreet Town Park
During this amazing Summer Millstreet Town Park is such a wonderful hive of activity for such a variety of sports. Walking in the Town Park on Saturday evening people were most impressed by the “Olympic” style level of fitness demonstrated by the cousin of Dominik Firek – Daniel Biernat, a 19 year old student who is visiting from Poland. Daniel, who just happened to be fitness training there must undoubtedly be a potential Polish representative in a future Olympics. A cool ice-cream cone was well deserved! Congratulations to Daniel and Dominik for giving such splendid fitness example.  As this amazing level of athletic capability requires expert guided training we certainly advise not to try these incredible moves at home!   (S.R.)

Discover Duhallow … A Day of the Region

The concept for ‘A Day of the Region’ was first established in 1999 in Germany as an ‘Open Doors Event’ where organisations and communities in rural areas promoted what was in their own community in an effort to educate locals in an informal way about the opportunities and possibilities available to them in their region. Since this the concept has grown substantially with 8 other European Countries taking the initiative to develop it in their own regions.
‘Discover Duhallow… A Day of the Region’ is about capturing the essence of life in Duhallow and encouraging both locals and visitors alike to take part in the wide range of amenities, clubs and activities throughout our region. This 10 day programme will be a celebration of rural community life and will showcase what Duhallow has to offer those living here as well as those visiting the region. Many people who are new to the area and working outside the region are unaware of the wealth of activities and resources available right here on their door step.

Events organised for Millstreet are: [read more …] “Discover Duhallow … A Day of the Region”
