Tour of Ireland 2009 is Coming!

On Saturday August 22nd at approx 1:20pm, one hundred and twenty of the worlds best cyclists will pass through Millstreet in Stage 2 of the Tour if Ireland. The cyclists will be coming from Rylane, over Mushera, into Millstreet, out on a loop over Curragh mountain, back to Millstreet, and on to Killarney.

The leading rides are seven times Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong who brings his Astana team to Ireland for the first time, and six times Tour de France stage winner Mark Cavendish (Columbia – HTC), who won three stages here last year, and an amazing six stages in this years Tour de France.

Of course roads will be closed for some short time, but hopefully lots of people will come out and cheer on the cyclists, like previous times the race passed through, when it was known as the Nissan Classic.

Rathcoole Rovers FC

Without doubt, this has been the most successful season ever for double winning Rathcoole Rovers. This memorable year they managed to do what they had been trying to do for the past 8 seasons and went and won 1A.

For Rathcoole home form was a major factor, along with a few wins on the road. Every member of the squad played his part but special mention though for top goalscorer Tadhg Browne, who in a fine season, bagged 33 goals in total, 23 of them in the league.

Millstreet storm past Newmarket

MILLSTREET turned on the style in the second half to dispose of Newmarket in the second round to the Kanturk Credit Union Duhallow JAFC played in Boherbue on Monday evening.

Once Millstreet got into their stride upon the resumption, they possessed far too many aces in the pack for a second string Newmarket combination. Newmarket held their own for the opening 30 minutes but after a promising start, they lost their way.

Millstreet claim county U12 football champions


MILLSTREET added a glorious chapter to its underage ranks on capturing the County U12 B Football Championship by virtue of a thrilling 5-9 to 2-9 victory over Thomas Russells of Kilshannig in Mallow last Sunday night.

At the end of a glorious run, Millstreet emerged as a polished combination, their ferocious desire for victory confirmed on an outstanding team performance and greeted with rapturous acclaim at the full time whistle.

All through the contest, Millstreet put together a terrific work ethic, an assured defence formed an unyielding division, midfield established a firm control and the attack reaped a handsome return of scores.

The determination and the inspiration of the team was matched only by the enthusiasm of the team’s willing band of supporters that saluted Millstreet team captain Thomas Walsh on landing the county trophy.

Delirious supporters welcomed home the new county kingpins to a victory parade. Millstreet Pipe Band led a parade from Minor Row to a reception in the club’s Community Hall.

Club chairman Noel Crowley told those present that everybody was proud of Millstreet’s achievements and the feats of the side had passed their expectations. He thanked the players, management, parents and supporters for their huge encouragement.

Divisional Secretary Steven Lynch congratulated Millstreet on a fantastic win for the club and Duhallow. He applauded the work generated on the promotion of gaelic games in coaching, schools of excellence and summer camps.

The triumphant Millstreet panel consisted of Dylan O’Leary, Alan Murphy, Eric Barrett, Patrick Dineen, Danny Buckley, Sean Og O’Connor, Billy Cronin, Cathal Crowley, Darren Kiely, Shane Hickey, Thomas Walsh, Maura Ellen O’Connor, James Linehan, Alex Lee, Killian Linehan, Bill Kelleher, Danny O’Callaghan, Darragh McSweeney, Conor Corkery, Niall Murphy, Padraig Moynihan, Colm O’Leary, James Cronin, Sean O’Keeffe, Tomasz Ozaist, James O’Connor and Jack Brady.

Millstreet take Duhallow u12 Football title

A sharper Millstreet regained the Duhallow on a merited win over Kanturk in the Duhallow U12B Football Championship Final played in Newmarket.

From a competitive encounter, Millstreet didn’t have matters all of their own way but a better balanced team effort landed the ultimate spoils. However weren’t it for a series of magnificent saves in both halves by Millstreet ‘keeper Dylan O’Leary, Millstreet might well had been troubled early in the game.

Defences dominated a low scoring opening twenty minutes before Millstreet proceeded to raise the tempo. Darren Kiely kicked a trio of points before Shane Hickey netted a goal to allow Millstreet enjoy a 1-4 to 0-2 advantage at the break. Kanturk resumed with renewed urgency yet they had reason to regret some wasted possession and the heroics of Dylan O’Leary between the Millstreet posts thwarted their efforts.

Millstreet held the facility to respond and a delightful chipped goal from Thomas Walsh appeared good enough for Millstreet to record a comprehensive win.

Kanturk never gave up and a late flourish yielded a pair goals that came too late to alter the outcome.

Millstreet lined out as Dylan O’Leary, Alan Murphy, Eric Barrett, Patrick Dineen,
Danny Buckley, Sean Og O’Connor, Billy Cronin, Cathal Crowley, Darren Kiely,
Shane Hickey, Thomas Walsh, Maura Ellen O’Connor, Bill Kelleher, James Linehan, Killian Linehan.

U14 Hurling win Duhallow title


Millstreet captured the Duhallow U14B Hurling championship title by virtue of a 4-10 to 1-5 triumph over Newmarket in Lismire.

From a game of two contrasting halves, Millstreet sprang into action upon the resumption to dictate matters. Little separated the sides in the opening spell, an early Newmarket goal answered by Robert Kelleher that helped to keep Millstreet in the frame to trail 1-5 to 1-4 at the break.

With the backing of the fresh breeze, Milstreet proceeded to dominate matters and two goals in quick succession from Robert Kelleher and Lyn Murphy confirmed their superiority.

There was no denying Millstreet upperhand and the issue was put beyond doubt from a fourth goal netted by Daniel O’Brien.

Millstreeet lined out as Eoin O’Callaghan, Donal Lenihan, Gavin Sheehan, Sean O’Donoughue, Beircheart O’Connor, Alan Murphy, Cian Dennehy, Lyn Murphy, Paul Sheehan, Mark O’Donovan, Diarmuid Fraser, Tomas Sheehan, Tadgh O’Callaghan, Daniel O’Brien, Robert Kelleher.

Minor hurlers enjoy County success


Millstreet savoured the taste of victory in the Co. non exam minor hurling league 12 aside final by overcoming Courcey Rovers 2-10 to 1-6 played in Ovens. The contest was delayed 15 minutes owing to rain sheeting down on the proceedings. Despite the slippery conditions, there could be no disguise the superiority of Millstreet.

All through, Millstreet hurled with the greater confidence and that was good enough to keep the Carrigdhoun side at bay. Owing to the conditions, scoring was at a premium early on and the prematch cloudburst ensured the early exchanges were bereft of free flowing hurling.

However Millstreet’s cause was boosted in the 9th min on a probing delivery by Michael Vaughan saw Michael Murphy get a stick to flick to the Courceys net.

A follow up point from Barry O’Reilly confirmed Millstreet’s stature. Courceys did open their account yet all the initiative stemmed and drive stemmed from Millstreet. They kept a foothold on the game thanks to the tenacious play of Dean Desmond, Tim Fitzgerald, Mark Ellis, Michael Vaughan and Darren Sheehan.

Two points in quick succession to Vaughan confirmed Millstreet’s supremacy yet they were jolted on a Courceys goal. However, Millstreet bounced back immediately and though Michael Vaughan was denied of a possible goal, Michael Murphy was on hand to steer the rebound home.

ourceys did answer to narrow the arrears 2-3 to 1-3 at the break.

Millstreet took up the running upon the resumption on quick fire points by Michael Murphy and Darren Sheehan.

Courceys attempted a comeback yet all they could show to their interval tally was three pointed frees. Territorially, Millstreet dominated and though some wayward shooting limited progress, their persistence paid off with points from Michael Vaughan, Darren Sheehan and David McCaul.

Millstreet lined out as Pa Rohan, Jamie Kelleher, Dean Desmond, Tim Fitzgerald, Mark Ellis, Liam Curtin, David McCaul, Barry O’Reilly, Michael Vaughan, Darren Sheehan, John Buckley, Michael Murphy. Sub. Tony Cronin.

Shane Kelleher




Two games, two wins for a Rathcoole side jus t hitting top form. Unfortunately attention had to be turned away from the league and towards A.O.H cup matters with Watergrasshill the visitors to a bitterly cold Cooney Park on Sunday last.

A David vs. Goliath tag was hardly justified but with a division separating the sides, it seemed the odds were firmly stacked against Coole who entered the game with a somewhat under strength team. Injury and illness prevented the services of first choice midfield pairing, David Bourke and Paddy Daly. Not to mention top scorer Finbarr Cleary.

Despite the supposed difference in quality, the game played out as if any other division 3 league encounter. The only real difference between the sides being “Hills” ability to counter attack at speed. But with Rathcoole taking the more direct root, supplying Jonathan O Leary and Darren Kelleher with good quick ball, it seemed the visitors defense were struggling to cope with such an approach.

But mid way through the first half Coole were coming off a solid ten minutes of sustained pressure, even a succession of four straight corner kicks saw the home side end with nothing if only a psychological advantage. But this was too soon change as hill made another trade mark break up the pitch, eventually leaving keeper Brian Cooper stranded in a one on one situation , yet it still took a twenty yard cracker to break the deadlock.

The end to end football continued into the second half with the visitors just about maintaining their advantage with the defense now getting to grips with the threat posed by Leary and Kelleher. But in truth this really was an error ridden game, perhaps only redeemed by some excellent goalkeeping from both custodians. One nil the final score, with neither side looking like breaching the others rearguard.

Certainly a game which won’t live long in the memory, or will it be looked upon as a missed opportunity. Alfie Cooney’s men will certainly be keeping the league as the main focus of attention. Let’s just hope Sundays defeat won’t put a damper upon the recent run of results in the league. A decent performance against a solid division 2 side should give “Coole” plenty of confidences going into next weeks encounter with Gratten F.C. And with players returning from injuries and absences, there is no apparent reason for not collecting another three points.

TEAM; B Cooper, R Brown, T McAuliffe, L Dennehey, D Guerin, S Kelleher, E Crowley, D Twomey, C Kelleher, J O Leary, D Kelleher. SUBS USED; P Tancred.

NEXT MEETING; Vs Gratten F.C. Sunday 5th march. Gratten Park [Fr O Neil’s]

Scoil Mhuire Millstreet 2-8
St Mary�s B.N.S.Carrigtwohill 0-4

The sun came out and the dark clouds lifted when the teams came out to contest the boy�s F4 final which was the second match on the Allianz Sciath na Scol football programme at P�irc Ui Rinn yesterday.
With wind advantage Millstreet built up a six point lead by half-time, which was to prove too much for a gallant Carrigtwohill side, whose failure to score from play when winning possession was to prove costly.
The East Cork school opened with a point from an Alan Goggin free in the first minute, but he was to prove their only scorer in the first half when adding two more frees. Millstreet�s best player on the day, midfielder Michael Vaughan scored three points from frees as well as playing outstanding football.
The only goal of the first half came to the North Cork school�s half forward Eric Hickey who beat the busy Carrigtwohill goalkeeper Kieran Baverstock after five minutes. Hickey kicked another good point from 25 metres, with Alan O Connor and half back John O Mahony also scoring to help their side into a 1-6 to 0-3 half-time lead.
St Mary�s made a positional change at the start of the second half, with full-back P�draig Hogan moving to midfield joining the hard-working Cian Buckley with Colm Cronin switching to full-back. These three players won an amount of ball, but the forwards failed to convert possession into scores.
After 11 minutes of close football that did not yield a score, the stylish Vaughan set up Kieran Fraser for a point and when Millstreet scored their second goal through Daniel Daly 13 minutes into the second half, it silenced the Carrig following.
When Shane Devlin scored his only score from play in stoppage time it was just a consolation as Scoil Mhuire Millstreet deserved their win.
Millstreet; E Hickey 1-1, D Daly 1-0, M Vaughan 0-3 f, J O Mahony, A O Connor, K Fraser, M Buckley 0-1 each.
Carrigtwohill; A Goggin 0-3 f S Devlin 0-1

GAA News – June 2003

Millstreet held their nerve to fashion a worthy 3-13 to 2-9 triumph over Kilbrin in the Duhallow Junior A Hurling League Final played in Meelin last Friday evening

Operating with fluency and confidence, Millstreet superior team work shone through for much of the hour though a brave comeback by the defending holders Kilbrin cut an eight point deficit to the minimum.

However Millstreet regained their earlier momentum and a productive finish yielded telling scores to allow team captain Donal Twomey accept the League trophy for the second time in three seasons.

Playing against the strong breeze in the opening half, Millstreet got off to a lightning start with Brendan Quirke goaling inside the opening min.

Millstreet proceeded to gain a commanding position and points to John Lehane and the McCarthys confirmed Millstreet’s sharpness and greater hunger andthey were well worth their interval advantage of 1-5 to 0-5.

And Millstreet set the trend upon the restart –a deflected goal by Tadgh Collins and three points from Kevin McCarthy and John Lehane extended their hand to lead 2-8 to 0-6.

Kilbrin rose to the challenge brillantly and the games complexion turned in dramatic fashion and a 2-1 tally without reply trimmed the arrears 2-8 to 2-7 at the three quarter mark.

And Millstreet were forced to weather further Kilbrin pressure before regaining their earlier composure with Brendan Quirke, Stephen Barrett and Kevin McCarthy adding points. Fittingly Millstreet finished on the ascendency and a finely struck goal by Kevin McCarthy sealed the destination of the league title.

Millstreet: Finbarr Corcoran, Donal Corcoran, John Moylan, Gerard McCarthy, Brian Sheehan, Donal Twomey, Donough McCarthy, Denis Kiely, Sean Barrett, D.onal Cashman, Stephen Barrett, Kevin McCarthy, John Lehane, Tadgh Collins, Brendan Quirke.
