Upholding a Wonderful St. Patrick’s Day 2019 Tradition in Millstreet

Blessed with fresh weather conditions on Sunday 17th March 2019 the wonderful morning tradition was upheld of St. Patrick’s Day Mass in St. Patrick’s Church where the Millstreet Pipe Band truly enhances the liturgy especially with the magnificent “Highland Cathedral” with pipes and organ (the repeat of which may be heard this Tuesday at 10pm on “Radio Treasures” on Cork Music Station) and also gives a brief recital in the Church Grounds. The organist with the Millstreet Choir was Jane Daly.  The Celebrant of the Mass was Fr. Billy Radley with Concelebrants Fr. Paddy O’Byrne and Fr. Seán Tucker.  Here we share some 21 images from the very special annual occasion.  The Band took part in the Parade at 5pm for the amazing 67th time.   Present in our group image are two of the Members who have been in the Band since the early 1950s – Tim O’Shea and Liam Coffey.  Click on the pictures to enlarge.  (S.R.)

Carriganima St. Patrick’s Parade on Monday 18th March at 3pm

Last year’s Carriganima Parade took place in snowy conditions as illustrated in our 2018 images.  It was Fr. Anthony Wickham who was Grand Marshal of the ever popular Parade.  Shane McCarthy of Carriganima very kindly assisted us in video recording the wonderful event.   This year’s Parade takes place on this Monday at 3pm.  Everyone is very welcome.  As always a mighty atmosphere at The Pub follows where many assemble.  Seán Murphy, Coordinator supereme, will as usual act as MC on the day during which his commentary of the Parade is always both witty, humorous and informative.  And Seán has just informed us that this year’s Grand Marshal will be the very same Fr. Anthony Wickham.   Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.) [read more …] “Carriganima St. Patrick’s Parade on Monday 18th March at 3pm”

Daniel

A bitter wind blew from Clara
On that historic Millstreet day
The people waited with bated breath
Wasn’t Daniel and Majella on the the way.

At last they came into view
In their handsome touring car
So many fans in downtown Millstreet
They had come from near and far.

Daniel saluted as he passed us by
He had a wave for little Fionn
On a cold Saint Patrick’s day in Millstreet
Daniel brought a welcome ray of sun.

He cheers us with his singing
He lifts us when we’re down
North Cork will never be the same
Since Daniel o’ Donnell was feted
In good old Millstreet town.
