Millstreet Celtic 3 Crescent 3

Congratulations to Millstreet Celtic who today are Champions of Cork AUL Division 2A after drawing with title challengers Crescent in The Town Park, Millstreet, in a tense and exciting game in front of an good crowd who cheered on the Millstreet team to title honours.


Match Report by Tim Kiely: We drew 3-3 with Crescent in the park this morning to secure the 2A title. Playing with a stiff breeze in the 1st half we were slow to get going and were punished after just 8 mins. A through ball caught out our defence and the Crescent striker finished well. We responded to this setback in excellent fashion and got back level just 10 mins later. Strong work from Tadhg Collins on the right saw him get to the end line and pull the ball back to the edge of the six yard box where it was met by the onrushing Chris Cleary. We were the stronger team after this and went close a couple of times through Collins and Mike Murphy before taking the lead in the 30th min. Collins won a breaking ball on the edge of the box and played it out left to Barry Lawlor. [read more …] “Millstreet Celtic 3 Crescent 3”

Michael O Connor

One of the famed Kippagh O Connors of athletics and gaelic football
So many marvellous memories of Michael to recall
Like that sunny afternoon in early Spring in Pound Hill in Millstreet
That he won a six mile road race he was so quick on his feet

His foxy hair blowing in the breeze as he raced down Pound Hill
We cheered him on to victory the memory with me still [read more …] “Michael O Connor”
