Munster U21 Hurling Final

GAA BeoAs mentioned previously, Mark Ellis plays at wing-back (#7) for Cork against Limerick in the Munster U21 Hurling Final tonight at 7:30. For those of us that can’t make the game at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick, it will be live on TV as gaeilge on TG4 from 7:15.
It what has been described as the best game in any sport anywhere in the world this year, Limerick pipped Cork in extra time to win on a final scoreline of Limerick 4-20 Cork 1-27. Mark Ellis was unlucky to be pitted against Limerick’s best forward Jamie Coughlan before he made way at half time. An enthralling game you can see on the TG4 website. (It is is a number of parts)

Sincere Congratulations to Alanna Barry on Magnificent All-Ireland Success

Millstreet is indeed very proud of the very wonderful Alanna Barry who as a member of the Cork team achieved All-Ireland success with her team in the weekend’s All Ireland Ladies Minor Football Final which took place in Birr.   Alanna’s  superb input in the game was very significant in the uplifting great result for the team.    Well done, Alanna.

And we wish the very talented  Mark Ellis every good luck tonight as he participates as a member of the Cork team in the U21 Munster Hurling Final at Limerick when Cork play against Limerick.

On The Passing Of Dick Kiely

Dick Kiely was the principal teacher when I was in primary school
And he seemed quite impartial and with fairness he did rule
He did not have his favourites as some other teachers had
A good and honest fellow and in him nothing bad.

A famous gaelic footballer when he was in his prime
But I never see him playing it was before my time
By all accounts the mighty Dick was a renowned athlete
One of the famous sportsmen for to represent Millstreet.
