Twinning Twirl

Not so much a dancing but a talking "twirl" by members of Millstreet Twinning Association who had a very pleasant get together at McCarthy's Bar, The Square, Millstreet on this Sunday evening (22nd August) in the knowledge that Cork are now in the All-Ireland Football Final. Our Friends from Pommerit-le-Vicomte will be arriving in Millstreet on 18th September 2010 marking the 25th Anniversary of the official twinning of our two communities. (Seán)

Cork v Dublin

The banter has been good ahead of the All-Ireland semi-final in Croke Park today. We’ve a few Jackeens in our midst, and the Dublin flag in the picture above has been lucky to stay in flying for the last few days. There’s a big crowd gone up to Croker for the day, the anticipation is building and the action gets under way in the next few hours time. May the best team win, and may that team be Cork!!

Final score Dublin 1-14 Cork 1-15. Victory for Cork, TBTG ;). The final is on September 19th.
