Millstreet Community School Senior Soccer Team

The Millstreet Community School Senior Soccer Team’s terrific run in the John Murphy Cup sadly came to an end on Monday 11th January.  The team lost 2-1 after extra time to Nagle Community College in their semi-final.  Billy Cronin scored the team’s goal.  Nothing was left on the pitch – all the boys gave everything for the cause and they should be proud of their efforts in this game and in the previous fixtures.
