It was always likely to happen. With all the new audio and photos in the last few days, we’re in danger of running out of bandwidth, and there would be no Millstreet.ie for the rest of the month.
Normally we run at about 70% of capacity, but for the last few days we have been running at 800% of normal. The audio are the biggest culprits so for now i’ll have to remove them and find somewhere else to host them. Sorry about this. michael (the admin) 🙁
Update 29th: We’ve started moving the audio hosting to soundcloud. the first ones back are the post match interviews. Listen to them here.
Dia is Mhuire diobh go leir a Cairde and welcome to News report 1240 from Millstreet. Fondest greetings dear listeners band I wish you all the best on this pretty wet but calm morning. The last one in October.
It will take a long time for the excitement of this past weekend to calm down. Our team’s victory the Co. Final of the Junior A football Championship on Saturday raised to spirits of our people from here to the farthest ends of the Earth. Judging by the numbers of messages coming into our website, we have people in every corner of the globe. And I would like our winning team and all connected with them to take a step back, pause for a moment and just think what joy and pride that they have brought to their people.
All the long hours of training, and anguish along the way has been worth it. Great of course to win, but even greater to realise what they have done to make our people out there, proud of where they came from ,and perhaps give them that extra push, to try and come home to stay.
No effort was spared on Saturday night, by our Community Council and GAA Club to give the winners a welcome home, fitting for the great team that they are.
The streets were lined with supporters as the Lorry carrying the team through the town was led by the pipe Band to the GAA Hall for a joyous gathering.
The Cup was taken on the customary tour of the pubs.
Millstreet hasn’t enjoyed a County Final Victory since 1963 which makes this all the sweeter. Look up our website it’s full of pictures and even a short recorded account of the vital closing moments of the game. [read more …] “Regional Report 1240 – 28th October 2014”
