The hard work being made by the Juvenile Club really paid off this weekend at the All Ireland Youth Cycling event held by Lakeside Wheelers in Mullingar. In total we had 11 SLCC juveniles taking part from Under 11 right up to Under 16. In the Time Trial held in the village of Multyfarnham our Under 11 boys team of Nicholas Buckley, Keenan Dennehy and Sean P Fleming rode well just losing out on the Team prize by 3 seconds demonstrating how much they have developed over the last 9 months. Amy Fleming won Bronze in the Under 14 girls TT with Ben Murphy 4th in the Boys Under 16 (again missing out of the podium by a second). Amy went on to win 2 more bronze medals in the Road Race and the criterium. Ciaran Finnegan Aidan Morley Dinny Murphy and Darragh Dennehy completed well in the boys under 15 14 and 13 events. Kate Murphy (Under 12) rounded off an excellent weekend for SLCC winning two Bronze medals in the Road Race and the criterium. All told an very strong weekend of racing by the SLCC Riders – thanks to all the coaches and parents for their support. This week Ben Murphy travels to Austria as part of a six man Ireland Team in the five stage International Radfjugendtour Oststeiermark road race. Ben’s team mates hail from Donegal (Errigal) Tyrone (Island wheelers) Dublin (Orwell) Meath (Bohermeen) along with another local rider David Shine from O Leary Stone Kanturk. Best of luck to the team and their backroom staff for the week. Next up for the juveniles is the Kerry County Championships and the Munster Road Championships this weekend.

When the Millstreet Summer Horse Show is over it’s a sign that the year is moving on in earnest. The end of summer school holidays is drawing near and the ‘back to school’ drive is on to buy school uniforms and all the other gear that goes with this great annual occurrence. Family holidays also become a memory and spirits can take a little dive if we allow it to happen. But life is always full of people to meet and things to do.
Having put our biggest ever Summer Horse Show behind us in the past week, the Wheel of Millstreet still keeps on turning as we welcome the International Horse Show Trials this week starting on Thursday. As I said our Summer Horse Show was the biggest ever, with a twenty per increase in entries over past years. Competitions went on from early morning to well into the night and there was something for everyone. Even discos at the end of the day. The all-weather courses coped well with the heavy rains which thankfully happened mostly at night-time. And the extra stabling met the challenge of the extra demand. Following in the wake of the mighty Dublin Show its great to hear how Millstreet compares so favourably to the event in the capital. Its well known now for its relaxed atmosphere, free audience entry, personal attention, attention to detail and lots more. The indoor Arena was packed each night where the crowds enjoyed the various competitions in comfort and intimacy. New friends and connections were made in the closeness of the excitement and the banter. Stuff that can only be found in Millstreet and rural Ireland.
Sr. Bríd Clifford, on behalf of the Sr. Consilio Centre in Farran, wishes to express her sincere thanks for the truly magnificent response to last weekend’s Church Gate Collection in Millstreet which amounted to a very impressive total of €1,750.50 in support of this most praiseworthy cause. When speaking to local organiser Marie Casey of Cloghoula Sr. Bríd indicated that this is one of the largest Church Gate Collections ever received by the Centre. And a special thanks also from the Bruree Centre in Co. Limerick to the people of Cullen and Millstreet … and beyond for their much appreciated generosity. Míle buíochas to All for such a very generous response. (S.R.)
