Commiserations to Conor O’Callaghan who played a good at #2 for the Cork Under 20 Hurlers in the Munster Final this evening. Beaten by a Tipperary goal with 30 seconds left in a cracking game. Thankfully not out though … onto the All Ireland semis, where Cork will play Lenister champions Kilkenny.
Congratulations to Shane Hickey and the Cork Under 20 Footballers on winning the Munster Championship last evening in Páirc Uí Rinn in Cork against old rivals Kerry, in Páirc Uí Rinn in Cork, on a scoreline of 3-16 to 0-12.
There is some fascinating Archive Footage (of interest to older! Millstreet GAA fans) of the 1974 Kerry V Cork Munster Final available on youTube . Cork won by 1-11 to 0-7 in very poor conditions. All the Millstreet players were excellent but it may well have been Humphrey Kelleher’s (#3) best performance in a Cork jersey. Dinny Long (#8) showing Mick O Connell the ball (34:45) also must have gone down very well with Kerry supporters at the time! John Coleman #6, and Connie Hartnett #7.
Injuries to Darragh Cashman and Kevin Crowley has prevented them from playing in the Munster Minor and Senior Football Finals against Kerry this evening. But the best to Luke Murphy who is #18 for the Cork Minors and is sure to be well ready if called on.
Not many hurling medals make their way to this part of Cork, so when there’s two on one day, it is something to special, as Conor O’Callaghan won a Minor medal, and Mark Ellis a Senior medal. On top of that Jack O’Riordan threw over a point in the primary game 🙂 Below are some photos from the day:
Millstreet Camogie Club would like to congratulate Clare O’keeffe & the Cork U16B team on a fantastic Munster Final win at the weekend v Limerick! Well done Clare! Great to see you on the scoreboard too!
Also, commiserations to Chloé Collins who played a Munster Final with the Cork U16A team at the weekend & were narrowly defeated by Clare (photo & match report). Best of luck for the rest of the season girls!
