Magnificent Rainbow Over Millstreet Town Park This Evening

We were fortunate to record a truly magnificent Rainbow over Millstreet Town Park at 5.30 this evening (Sunday, 15th April 2018).  It looked like the end of the rainbow … with its pot of gold … appeared to be over the Pitch-and-Putt Course!  Even the walkers in the Park at the time never felt closer to a rainbow.   But when you come to think about it – the recent wonderfully upgraded Pitch-and-Putt Course must be gold to its many Loyal Players.  Here we share four images of this evening’s “rainbow magic”.  Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)

Birds of Ice in Kilcorney

The art of nature … at first glance the ice looks like doves beside the river, and then you wonder how did that form?

Natures art comes at a price though. The freeze is still with us but it is not as cold as it has been in previous nights. Rain/sleet fell early yesterday morning and froze solid, covering everything in half an inch of solid ice. Everything ground to a halt and early morning commuters were left with treacherous road conditions with many of them turning around and staying at home for the day. While in town all day, walkers were better off walking on the roads because the footpaths had not been salted and were just plain dangerous.
