Millstreet Celtic 5 UCC A 4

We beat UCC 5-4 in a thrilling match in the town park this morning. We played well for the first 20 mins and had a number of chances through Tadhg Collins, Mark Ellis and Michael Murphy. We failed to convert though and were punished when we went behind 3 mins from half time. We came out quickly in the 2nd half and were ahead after 55 mins following 2 quickfire goals. The first came when Eamon O Keeffe swung over a corner that was well met by the head of Michael Murphy. Straight from the kickoff we won the ball back and went forward.

Running the Butter Road: Bertie Harte

Mallow man Bertie Harte spoke recently at the Kerryman’s Table (during the Aubane Centenary celebrations) (photo right) about running the Butter Road from Tralee to Millstreet, a distance of 100km.

Today is the day, and he’s currently on route. He left Kerry County Museum in Tralee at 8:50am this morning headed for Castleisland and following the Butter Road he is currently (1pm) near Knocknagree and will continue to Rathmore where he will follow the Clara road for the last section as the main Rathmore to Millstreet road is too busy. He’s running at about 5mph so 3-3:30 should see him in Millstreet. He has a GPS tracker and you can track his current location on

It is hoped to have people greet him at the Wallis Arms Hotel, so please come out and give him your support.
