There’s a special treat for kids on Main Street for this St.Patrick’s Day. Someone has gone to great efforts to created the lego story of St. Patrick as their window display, and it’s fantastic. Fair play to the creator. We would advise all children (small and big) to go and have a look before it disappears, but if you can’t, just click on the photo below to see the detail (with thanks to Áine for sending this in)

MILLSTREET ST PATRICKS DAY COMMITTEE
Hello all, please find below details of the St Patricks day parade in Millstreet.
CHANGE IN PARADE ROUTE
2016 marks the start of a new chapter for Millstreet St Patricks Day Parade, as we are changing the route the parade takes. The parade will now commence in the front carpark of the Green Glens on the Station Road. This change was due to increases in the numbers of individuals and floats taking part over the last number of years. For the first time in a long time we will have all participates in the one place, this will ensure that we will be able to maintain our high level of safety and comfort we offer to all taking part.
The route is as follows
Starting in the Green Glens Carpark Station Road at 5.00 pm, taking a left at Corkery’s corner, up to viewing stand in the square and will break up at the turn off for the fair field carpark in Minor row.
This will enable people to get back into the square quickly and also access the carpark. For vehicles wishing to return back up to the square, you may turn at the Dairygold front carpark.
Millstreet St Patricks Day Parade committee have introduced a new category this year to commemorate 1916, we are looking for individuals and groups to take part. [read more …] “Details of Millstreet St.Patrick’s Day Parade 2016”

The Comeback Kid namely Kerry Football Legend Paul Galvin made a Surprise Appearance at some Local Parades for the St Patricks Day Celebrations,he started out with an appearance at The Carriganima Parade last Sunday followed by appearances at The Parades in Ballinagree and Millatreet on St Patricks Day itself, when asked why he didn`t go to Parades in Killarney, Rathmore etc in his Native Kerry Galvin replied he had been there and done that and instead he choose to come to some of our Local Parades instead to warn the Cork People that he was back big time and that he meant Buissness especially when he would be lining out against the Rebel County of Cork, for his trouble Galvin and his hardworking Backroom Team came away with second overall best Float in the Millstreet Parade and Paul said he was delighted with The Result and that the winning had started already.

St.Patrick’s Day is always very busy for Millstreet Pipe Band. On Tuesday they started early at Ballydaly mass, followed by Millstreet mass at 11:30, followed by the Killarney Parade at 2pm, and finally back to the Millstreet Parade at 5pm.
Now our Pipe Band always play during St.Patrick’s Day mass in St.Patrick’s Church Millstreet, so when it was mentioned the week before that they would be played again this year, I was happy because it’s always nice, but didn’t take extra special notice of it.
But … what they played as the reflection after communion turned out to be something unexpectedly special. It started with a number of pipers playing from the altar, but then the church organ started to play at the opposite end of the church, and as the musicians played, for a few precious minutes as the low bass vibrations of the organ and the pipers passed through us, everyone was enthralled by beauty and emotion of the moment, as the hairs stood on the back of our necks … and it was of course followed by a rapturous applause. Truly, a moment not to be forgotten. [read more …] “Something Special”

Millstreet native Tony Broderick was back in town on St.Patrick’s Day catching up with old friends and family, where he attended the parade for the first time in many years with camera in hand, and has shared with us some of his super photos.
These days, Tony is a wedding/events photographer living in the South West region of France and “fortunately I had a camera in hand to capture some of the wonderful colour and smiling faces on the day”.
Many thanks to Tony for sharing the photos with us.
