The Sunday Parade as well as the Prize Giving at the annual Owners Pony & Young Riders Charity Show is always so very colourful and is hugely popular with the audience. As I walked down to be in time at Green Glens I noted a “deer” in the grounds of Millstreet Community School! Not a real live deer but rather a superb sculpture apparently recently been placed on the grass setting at the entrance of the school. Arriving at Green Glens I was just in time to [read more …] “Parade of Retiring Riders at Green Glens Equestrian Event”

… a few hardy Down souls are determined to fly their county’s flag in Cork.
Millstreet Community School’s John Magee is intensely proud of his Mourne Mountains roots and will be cheering on Down despite his admission that he loves living in north Cork.
“They are quietly confident of a Cork victory, but I think Down will hold a surprise up their sleeve,” he said.
And despite the fact that Millstreet, Charleville, Kanturk and Newmarket are a sea of Cork flags, he has proudly adorned his car and home in the Down colours.
“It’s all in good nature,” he said…
Millstreet Community School was founded in 1973 and this building was opened in September, 1974 fully furnished and equipped. The School was fully refurbished in 1999. The refurbishment of the School and the purchase of significant quantities of new equipment has been costly. We are interested in providing the best possible environment for all who study and work here

Ms. Aine Collins accepts a cheque for €500 on behalf of the Cystic Fibrosis Association, from the Transition Year Students. This money was raised through the “Tastes of Christmas” cookery demonstration. All the money raised from this event has now been distributed and the three beneficiaries were Cystic Fibrosis,The Irish Heart Foundation and Baby Jacob Fund.
The Transition Year Class wish to sincerely thank everyone that contributed.
Prepare to welcome the world to Millstreet! That’s the message from the Transition Year students at Millstreet Community School as they prepare to host the fourth annual World Wide Welcome multicultural event this Thursday, March 11 in the school library.
Starting at 7pm, the evening is a celebration of the diversity of cultures that now exist within the school and in the local community, and comprises song, dance, music and poetry, along with the chance to sample cuisine prepared by people from many of the 20 nationalities now present in the locality. Admission is free.
The students have been very busy preparing for the event, and three different groups have taken on the tasks of planning and preparation for the event.
Millstreet’s Michael Vaughan won All Ireland with the Vocational Schools footballers last Saturday February 28th. Vaughan worked hard and played well throughout and notched up two points for his efforts as Cork edged out Monaghan on a scoreline of 3-8 to 2-7.
Sweet revenge for Cork as they shaded a gripping duel with Monaghan to lift the All-Ireland Vocational Schools senior football championship title in Dr. Cullen Park, Carlow, last Saturday.
It was Cork’s second victory in the final against Monaghan in three seasons, but they had been ousted at the semi-final stage in 2009 by the Farney County students, who went on to replace them as champions.
Photograph shows Marius (Jacob`s father) and Jerry Pat O`Leary (Chairperson) accepting a cheque for €1000 for the Baby Jacob Trust Fund from the Transition Year Students. Half of this money was raised through Charity fund-raising events in the School and the other half came from the “Tastes of Christmas”cookery demonstration which was held last December.
Twenty three students and teachers from Millstreet Community College will brave the elements and ‘sleep out’ overnight at the doors of Cork’s Millstreet Church to support Trocaire’s Lenten campaign on hunger. They will be joined by members of Millstreet parish. The students aim to highlight world hunger and the poor living conditions faced by people struggling to survive, while raising money for Trocaire’s work.
To make the sleep-out as challenging as possible they will leave mobile phones, i-pods, and all forms of portable entertainment at home. The students will speak at local parishes over this weekend, 27/28th February, and to end the week off they will undergo a 24 hour Fast on Friday 5th March for Trocaire. Also on the 11th March there will be a multicultural event in the Community School as part of the Lenten Project.
Why? For the first time in history 1 billion people or one in six people in the world do not have enough food.
At the doors of St.Patricks Church, Millstreet. 7pm on Monday 1st March to 7am on Tuesday 2nd March.

Michael Vaughan from Millstreet Community School was playing for Cork Vocational Schools in the Senior Hurling Championship Quarter-Final last Saturday (Jan 30th 2010) in what proved to be yet another defeat to Kilkenny. In at corner forward he managed a point in a game that was to-ing and fro-ing throughout.
… and Cormac Heffernan were both on the mark in the 45th minute, sweeping to 1-14 to 3-5. Michael Vaughan did reply a minute later but the dynamic had decisively changed. Then, after a melee in their defence …
Full match report (from a Kilkenny viewpoint) below
It was announced last night that due to the treacherous nature of the roads, footpaths and concreted areas, all schools in Millstreet will remain closed until next Monday (11th January). This includes Presentation Convent, Boys National School, Millstreet Community School, Ballydaly National School and Cloghoula National School. There is no information on the other schools. With the freezing weather set to continue into next week, this will have to be reviewed in due course for the first few days of next week.
The schools have now been off for three weeks over the Christmas period, as they were closed for two days before Christmas for the same reasons. I wonder are the kids happy to be off still, or would they prefer to be back with their friends?
Photos from “Tastes of Christmas” which was held at the Community School on Wednesday evening 2nd Dec. Chef Frank Moynihan presented an evening of festive cooking that was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The proceeds from this event, which was promoted by the Transition Year Students,will be going to the “Baby Jacob” fund, The Irish Heart Foundation and Cystic Fibrosis. Many Thanks to all that supported this event. (Jim O`Donnell,Millstreet Community School)
