Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a Cairde and welcome to my weekly report from Millstreet.
And what a wonderful weekend it has been. Dawn to dawn celebrations. It started well with the Bradley Family winning our Lotto Jackpot of €8,400.
Then the Knocknagree All Ireland victory in Croke Park on Saturday. That night Cullen GAA lauded their brilliant team of ‘67 who won no less than three cups that year, and every man was presented with a beautiful plaque, comprising of a photograph of the team plus a medal. The presentation was made by Jeffrey O Sullivan (lifelong President of the Club), at a gala social held at the East Avenue Hotel on Saturday night.
But there was no time to sit back, next door neighbours Kanturk were in the hot seat next day in Croke Park where they continued the winning streak by claiming All Ireland victory at Hurling. They partied away the hours at the famed Red Cow Hotel, to the live entertainment of our own Kelt.
And Johnnie Sextons last minute score took us back to ’87 and Pakie Bonners brilliant save which led us to the World Cup.
It almost too much to take in. Congratulations all round.
