Dramatic win in Mitchelstown for Millstreet Community School Senior Soccer Team


Millstreet Community School senior soccer team bounced back from a heavy loss in their first group match in Castleisland to beat St. Fanahan’s, in Mitchelstown, 5-4 in the John Murphy Cup.  The win means they progress to the knockout stages of the competition and now face another tough away assignment against Schull Community College.

Having taken a two goal lead courtesy of the brace from Lael Tambwe, St. Fanahan’s battled back to take a 4-2 lead.  However, with ten minutes to go the Millstreet students began their remarkable fightback.  The third goal was scored by captain Colm O’Leary.  Then it was the turn of two of the substitutes to play their part.  Daniel Dennehy and Mateusz Ozaist both found the net, the last goal coming with virtually the final kick of the game.

It was a really spirited team performance and all the panel should be proud of their efforts.

Monsignor Slattery

I remember Monsignor Slattery when i was a boy
His stories on life and nature were a source for joy
Memories of his visits to our classroom are with me today
And for as long as i live with me are bound for to stay

He had so many stories on the creatures of nature to us for to tell
That if published in book form they would readily sell
He advised us to animals and birds to be kind
Since in the image of god they too have been designed

A devout and friendly person free of conceit and guile
With the warmth of kindness in his beautiful smile
He does not deserve to fade from memory
Since he was everything a man of god should be
