Junior B Hurling Final Tonght in the Park

Millstreet take on Banteer in the Final of the Duhallow Junior B Hurling League for 2009 in the Town Park tonight at 7:30. It was postponed at the end of last year due to a bereavement in the Banteer Club, and later because of the bad winter weather,  and is only being played now. Go down and give the lads your support this evening.

Result: they won a hard game by 2-8 to 0-6 in which they led by 1-4 to 0-2 at half time, but then looked like throwing away for the first 15 minutes of the second half as Banteer scored three points on the trot, before finding their footing again, popping over a few points, and then a late goal sealed the result.

Charity Cycle

On Friday evening (28th May) some sixteen energetic and enthusiastic cyclists took a well earned break for refreshments at Coleman’s Centra in Minor Row, Millstreet as they made progress on their four-day Mizen to Malin sponsored cycle tour of Ireland covering an amazing 100 miles a day! The inspiring sportspeople hail from Co.Tipperary and are members of the Ballinahinch Cycling Club. “Their local pub is the “Bonnán Buí” which is in fact the pub location used in the very popular Pat Shortt series “Killinascully”… ,” explained John O’Connell who was one of the co-ordinating supporters travelling with the cyclists. John (pictured on right in our picture) met with Don O’Riodan of Millstreet whom he had known from college days. The cyclists took part in this very deserving project in aid of Milford Hospice in Castletroy, Limerick.
