Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
The Month of April is in with a bang, and a bit of a burrrr.
We didn’t expect to be donning the Winter woollies at such a fast rate. Going from 15/16 degrees to Zero almost overnight was a shock to the system but then April showers always brought bright May Flowers, and Hope Springs Eternal.

MILLSTREET GAA CLUB PRESENTATION
TO “FRIENDS OF KIERAN”
Pictured at the presentation in Pairc Ui Rinn Mark Ellis, Michael Murphy, Kevin Crowley and Pearse O’Neill who accepted the cheque on behalf of “Friends of Kieran”.
On last Wednesday night in Pairc Ui Rinn Millstreet GAA Club presented a cheque of €1,000.00 to the “Friends of Kieran Fund” which had been raised at the Poc Fada held on March 18th in aid of Kieran O’Connor, Cork County football player, who is ill and undergoing treatment at the moment. The fundraising event which was organised by the club and in particular, Michael Murphy, was very well supported and we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated, made donations and assisted with stewarding on the day. The presentation was made before the Charity Benefit game between Cork and Kilkenny in Pairc Ui Rinn.
We are hiring! The Fabulous Fabric Company in Ballymakeera, Co. Cork is looking for qualified people to join our busy factory. For more information, please contact Siobhán at <firstname.lastname@example.org>. tffc.ie
Well done to Denis O Connor who finished 4th and Dan Murphy who had a top 20 finish in the Des Hanlon Race held in Carlow at the weekend. This race attracted the top talent in the country and the lads hard work over the winter months is now paying dividends. The juveniles made the long journey to Coalisland Co Tyrone this weekend for the Youth Qualifying races. Amy Fleming came 4th in U14 girls competition, the width of a tyre denying her a podium spot. Ben Murphy attacked all day and finished 9th overall in a hugely competitive U16 qualifier. Kate Murphy was second in the Girls under 12. All roads lead to Dungarvan on Sunday next with Juveniles/Juniors and Adults races on the card. Well done to all the club members who took part in the SRAC Sportive in Tralee last Saturday and in doing so conquered the Conor Pass it’s now only 15 weeks to the Ring of Kerry so now is the perfect time to kick off your plan and build the miles up gradually. New members always welcome to both adult and juvenile section of the club – learn to enjoy a great sport and gain some new friends – For further information contact 087 7023562 or the club Facebook page.
