Our second very rare sight at Millstreet Town Park on Sat. 7th July 2018 is demonstrated here by Evan and Liam. Because of the extreme dry weather conditions the original driveway to the former Coomlogane House of the McCarthy-O’Leary Family is presently visible within the Pitch & Putt Course….near Green No. 2. The print of the driveway only becomes visible during very warm Summers.
