Not having been contested for 4 years, the pre-season competition between local sides was revived this year. Emphasis being on enjoying ones self while still being competitive. The final, played yesterday (Saturday August 15th 2009) was contested between Los Zarcos (from Millstreet Town) who play in the Cork AUL and Aubane who assembled a team from a small pick especially for this competition.
MLLSTREET Ceolthas Ceolteoirí Eireann received the perfect 30th Anniversary plaudits on capturing outright honours in the All Ireland Junior Scóraíocht hosted in conjunction with the Fleadh Nua in Ennis last Saturday. (read below for a full description).

FOR the first time in four decades history, the Millstreet Summer Horse Show is a non runner this week.
This comes after an impasse between Millstreet organisers and the national body Showjumping Ireland.
Millstreet came to life each summer on the staging of its six-day equestrian festival in the Green Glens Arena, holding an unrivalled reputation as a mecca for showjumping enthusiasts.
This is the first time in 38 years that Millstreet Show will not he held and the cancellation is seen as a huge loss to owners, show organisers and the North Cork catchment area.
Apart from the show jumping, the showing classes such as the Young Irelander, Boomerang and National Discovery provided a shop window for owners to parade their young talents before buyers from across the world.
Multi purpose facilities from sand-surfaced arenas to warm-up paddocks and the spacious indoor complex added to the enjoyment for entries drawn from all over the country.
On the positive side, the 2009 Owners Pony and Young Riders Charity Show returns to Millstreet over the October Bank Holiday weekend.
The Green Glens venue is donated free of charge by the Duggan family. To date, this show has raised €190,000 for a range of local and national charities.

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.

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.
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 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.
Old Time Threshing & Vintage Rally: – . Brilliant sunshine helped boost the attendance at the 10th revived annual Harvest Afternoon in Cullen on Sun. July 20th. Weather conditions were excellent after the inclement weather conditions of previous weeks, the Lord smiled on us for the occasion with a bright sunny day. This year we again decided to honour our own patron saint by holding it on Laitiarian Sunday. The huge crowd attending was a clear indication of its popularity. The occasion was for the display of vintage machinery including, cars, tractors, steam and stationary engines, which were even bigger and more interesting than last year with a variety of items on display.
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.
Rathcoole Rovers U14 Won the Cork Schoolboys League Division 3 2008-2009 League title. They improved as the year went on and thoroughly deserved the win with a record of Played 14, Won 12, drawn 1, lost 1, scored 55, conceded only 8 goals. The next season will see them in division 2, where opposition will be stronger, but hopefully they will continue to improve.
