Historic Signs Then & Now – 1992 and 2019

On Thursday, 22nd August 2019 Nora McSweeney in the company of her son, Fr. James – very kindly presented to Millstreet Museum the official Country Markets Ltd. Sign which was in use in Millstreet at the hugely popular Friday Country Market held weekly in Millstreet GAA Community Hall from 1992 until 2006.  Nora dedicatedly brought the now familiar Sign every Friday from her home to the Market and then took it back home again as Nora was the Official Keeper of the Sign.   And we also view a further very impressive new Sign put in place by Millstreet Community School and Millstreet GAA wishing Sportsmen supreme – Darragh Cashman and Luke Murphy every success in the upcoming All-Ireland event in Croke Park.  Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)

Sliabh Luachra Cycling Club Notes

The hard work being made by the Juvenile Club really paid off this weekend at the All Ireland Youth Cycling event held by Lakeside Wheelers in Mullingar. In total we had 11 SLCC juveniles taking part from Under 11 right up to Under 16. In the Time Trial held in the village of Multyfarnham our Under 11 boys team of Nicholas Buckley, Keenan Dennehy and Sean P Fleming rode well just losing out on the Team prize by 3 seconds demonstrating how much they have developed over the last 9 months. Amy Fleming won Bronze in the Under 14 girls TT with Ben Murphy 4th in the Boys Under 16 (again missing out of the podium by a second). Amy went on to win 2 more bronze medals in the Road Race and the criterium. Ciaran Finnegan Aidan Morley Dinny Murphy and Darragh Dennehy completed well in the boys under 15 14 and 13 events. Kate Murphy (Under 12) rounded off an excellent weekend for SLCC winning two Bronze medals in the Road Race and the criterium. All told an very strong weekend of racing by the SLCC Riders – thanks to all the coaches and parents for their support. This week Ben Murphy travels to Austria as part of a six man Ireland Team in the five stage International Radfjugendtour Oststeiermark road race. Ben’s team mates hail from Donegal (Errigal) Tyrone (Island wheelers) Dublin (Orwell) Meath (Bohermeen) along with another local rider David Shine from O Leary Stone Kanturk. Best of luck to the team and their backroom staff for the week. Next up for the juveniles is the Kerry County Championships and the Munster Road Championships this weekend.

Sliabh Luachra Cycling Club news

A busy month just passed for the Juveniles within the club. The Fermoy Cycling Club Hennessy League continues every Tuesday night and with the bi weekly Kerry County league the week nights are busy.

In addition Sunday races were attended in Carlow, Cavan, Mulytfarnam and Fermoy so all told a hectic schedule where the club bus has really showed its worth. Thanks to the Club Members and Parents who have helped out with the driving. In the Under 12 age group Nicholas Buckley, Sean P Fleming. Kianan Dennehy and Kate Murphy are racing well. In the Under 14 age group the performances of Aidan Morley, Darragh Dennehy, Dinny Murphy and Amy Fleming are all improving. Great to see Ciaran Finnegan back on the bike, completing the Ring of Kerry and racing competitively once again after an nasty fall in Beaufort last month. Ben Murphy (U16) raced with the adults (A3) as part of his national training in Fermoy and finished in the Top 10.

Well done to Knocknagree boys Denis O Connor and Dan Murphy who both completed the Junior Tour of Ireland last week. This is a gruelling six day stage race on the roads of Clare covering 550km and some of the most difficult climbing terrain the west of Ireland has to offer completing against strong European and USA Teams. No mean achievement to complete.

Training for both Juveniles and Adults continues this week.
