Traditional Music Special on Tonight’s “Radio Treasures” on CMS

As our Breton Friends from our Twin Town Pommerit le Vicomte return home following an enjoyable week in Millstreet and the West of Ireland we feature on Cork Music Station tonight at 10:00 a special musical recording presented at Coolefield House (the home of Michael, Pam and the Thornton Family) on Sunday 16th Sept. 2018.   The wonderfully talented musicians are members of Millstreet CCÉ coordinated by Claire O’Loughlin – O’Leary.  And, of course, “Radio Treasures” on CMS also features our mix of the very best of instrumental music and song plus our musings sharing lots of interesting information.   Feel most welcome to join us tonight 9:30 to 11:00 and consider contacting us on our Seán Radley Facebook chatline.  Patrick W.O’Leary from Louisville, Kentucky also enjoyed the musical evening at Coolefield House.

Millstreet Visit put back to September

Recently, about twenty members of the Pommerit-Millstreet twinning committee attended the AGM of the association. After the approval of the moral and financial report in 2017, a report was made of the meetings of departmental and regional Brittany-Ireland twinning committees. The observation is obvious. “Many committees are in survival and the future is very uncertain.”

With its 26 members, the Pommerit committee is doing pretty well and keeps its dynamism. After the re-election of the office, it was decided to renew the activities organized during the last season. The boules contest will take place on the weekend of April 28th and 29th. The association will participate in the Telethon.

For reasons of availability, the stay in Ireland, originally scheduled for late June, has been postponed after the summer holidays. The departure is scheduled for Friday, September 14 for a return on Sunday, September 23. This stay is open to all.  [from ouest-france.fr]
