Today marks the 100th anniversary of the War of Independence. Congratulations to the Presentation National School who marked the anniversary with a wonderful rendition of the Boys of the County Cork:
While it was not clear in the beginning of 1919 that the Dáil ever intended to gain independence by military means, and war was not explicitly threatened in Sinn Féin’s 1918 manifesto, an incident occurred on 21 January 1919, the same day as the First Dáil convened. The Soloheadbeg Ambush, in County Tipperary, was led by Seán Treacy, Séamus Robinson, Seán Hogan and Dan Breen acting on their own initiative. The IRA attacked and shot two RIC officers, Constables James McDonnell and Patrick O’Connell, who were escorting explosives. Breen later recalled:
…we took the action deliberately, having thought over the matter and talked it over between us. Treacy had stated to me that the only way of starting a war was to kill someone, and we wanted to start a war, so we intended to kill some of the police whom we looked upon as the foremost and most important branch of the enemy forces. The only regret that we had following the ambush was that there were only two policemen in it, instead of the six we had expected.
This is widely regarded as the beginning of the War of Independence. [read more …] “Boys of the County Cork”
Before Christmas the Presentation National School held a concert in St. Patrick’s Church in Millstreet. They were brilliant on the night. Below is a video of them singing “When the Saints Go Marching In”
Can anyone help with this request?
Hi there all,
My child is in Millstreet National School. I wanted to know if anyone has a snowman costume to borrow for a day (next Wednesday the 19th)? Age 7-8 years, or if anyone is selling I would gladly pay.
Please advise me, thanks, Khuram.
A wonderful annual Millstreet tradition on Presentation Day (21st Nov. 2018) was superbly upheld today when the children from Presentation N.S. splendidly enhanced the liturgy of the 10:00 a.m. Mass with their truly exquisite singing and music. This was followed by the placement of a special wreath in the Cemetery of the Presentation Sisters near the Church Grounds where a special hymn in honour of Nano Nagle who founded the Presention Sisters Order was sung by the 34 sixth class pupils. Staff members from Millstreet Community School and Sr. Eileen of the Presentation Order also attended the annual celebration. Here we share some 23 images from the annual occasion.

We were delighted to record three wonderful Birthday Celebrations at Millstreet Day Care Centre today. Coordinator Mary Feeley introduced us to Julia Murphy who is celebrating her 104th Birthday and who sang for us all a beautiful rendition of “My Donegal Shore” without even having to use glasses when referring to the words of the song! Joining Julia was Kathleen Moynihan and Peg Tarrant. A very Happy Birthday to all three splendid ladies. Adding to the occasion there was a superb musical presentation by pupils from Presentation N.S., Millstreet. A cheque of €500.00 was also presented to the Centre by the Pupils and Teacher Nora Murphy as the result of a recent Bake Cake Sale at the School. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)
