We are delighted to share the wonderful news, just phoned in by Seán Moylan, that his Band’s superb Cork supporting song “A Rebel’s Cry” has just won the competition making it now Cork’s Official Song for the 2010 Season – perfect timing for Sunday’s All Ireland Football Final in Croke Park – Cork v. Down. Sincere congratulations to Seán & all the splendidly enthusiastic members of “Loose Connection”. One can listen to the song and view the video on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHszrnhKhtk . Undoubtedly the excellent song will be played on many radio stations and television channels during the coming week….and, who knows, perhaps an appearance on “Up for the Match” might well become reality. What a mighty achievement for the superbly talented song writers, musicians and musical arrangers! Every success to All the members of “Loose Connection” – Cian Daly, Denis Meade, Neil Moylan, Mick Tobin and Seán Moylan. (Seán Radley for www.millstreet.ie )

It’s been a good weekend for Cork football fans in Croke Park. The seniors pulled away in the second half to beat Roscommon by 1-16 to 0-10, and now face Dublin in the All-Ireland semi-final in three weeks time. While earlier in the day, the minors scored a goal in the last kick of the game to beat Armagh by 3-11 to 0-19.
Millstreet were represented in Croke Park by the Comhaltas Group who provided the musical entertainment at half time in the Cork game (see the pic on the right), just as they did for the National League Final back in April.
But us Cork fans will be very happy that Kerry were dethroned yesterday by Down, and that we won’t have to try to beat them in Croker … that and the face that we won’t have to listen to the Kerry boys and girls for the Summer either
