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.
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.
