We beat Grangevale 5-1 in the town park to ensure our survival in division 1 for next season. We were poor in the 1st half and went behind in the 20th min. Chances were hard to come by until in the 45th min Shane Dineen won the ball in the tackle and fed Donagh Murphy.

Dineen played in Tadhg Collins who held off the defender and finished well. We had a number of chances after that but had to wait until the 75th min to get the third.

The top cycling race in the country, the An Post RÁS is on all next week, and will pass through Millstreet on Thursday some time between 12:30 and 1:30pm. Click on the image (right) for the map and times for the day. If you’re about town get out and give them a shout as they whizz by on their bikes.
“… The following day (Thursday), the riders will compete over a flatter 150.2 kilometre race from Glengarriff to Michelstown. Inside the first hour of racing on stage five they will scale the category two ascents of the Pass of Keimaneigh and Gortnabinna, then encounter 100 kilometres of mainly flat roads, passing through Macroom, Millstreet, Banteer and Mallow.
Those hoping to foil the sprinters will try to use the category three climb of Kildorrey to jump clear, but with fifteen kilometres between the summit and the finish, it’s a tough ask.” – from anpost.ie
