Clara News to call it a day after 36 great years
THE Clara News is a magazine Millstreet people made time for more than 30 years. However, just one more issue remains on the formal announcement that it will cease publication.
After 36 great years serving the greater Millstreet area, editor Denis Reardon made the announcement on the February edition that its end is iminent.
During its existence, The Clara News has tied its communities in a remarkable time warp of changing development and modern technology.
The Clara News stood the test, once circulated, a community magazine topped the list. Something everyone saw and no matter how many opinions there were, the weekend of issue wouldn't be completed without a read of the Clara News.
Over the years, "The Clara News showcased from the workings of community groups and the noted achievements of so many people yet those behind the magazine say its time to say goodbye.
"Some of us have come to the conclusion, that we can no lomger devote the time and the energy to produce The Clara News and we believe our time has come and its time to put away the keyboard, the pen and the stress.
"We're fine about it, its nice to go while we still can. It was fun while it lasted but for me, after 35 years, its time to go. I've enjoyed it," said editor Denis Reardon.
And from a magazine that found it way to all corners of the globe, Denis commended all associated with the magazine that over the years focused on the life and tmes of Millstreet, Ballydaly, Cullen, Kilcorney and Dromtariffe.
"I want to thank all the people who made the Clara News possible, those who supported it and they are many, too many to mention," he said.
