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.
Thanks to everyone who took part in this year’s Team Hope Shoebox Appeal. A total of 435 boxes were collected from Millstreet Community School on Thursday 16th November to begin their journey to children who will really benefit from your generosity .

Kilcorney National School, Rathcoole National School, Knocknagree National School, Hollymount National School, Scoil Mhuire National School Millstreet, Presentation National School Millstreet, Millstreet Community School.
Thanks must go to all connected with these schools, and to Mrs. Mary Randles and the Transition Years students of Millstreet Community School for coordinating this year’s effort. Thank you.
