Three Superb Mountain Race Events on Sat. 9th Feb. 2019

Irish Mountain Runners Association Millstreet was the true focal point for numerous energetic Athletes from 6:00 am until Sat. Night when no less that three highly regarded Mountain Races took place.   The first group of Athletes were transported to Kealkil in West Cork where at 8am they began their journey to Millstreet.  Gavin Byrne of Dublin was the first to reach the finishing flag just before 3pm.   A second group were transported to Ballyvourney from where they set off for Millstreet.  Official tracking was provided where one could follow on a special phone app at what stage the various participants were.  And at 1pm a group of almost one hundred climbed Clara Mountain.  Here we share some 24 images from what was a wonderfully sporting occasion in Millstreet.  Splendid refreshments were provided in Millstreet GAA Community Hall.  Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)

MCS Presentation to Soccer Player Supreme Ciarán O’Sullivan of Cullen

Millstreet Community Student Third Year student, Ciarán O’Sullivan from Mologhroe, Cullen has been called up to the Republic of Ireland Under-15 Squad.  They travel to Spain next week for three matches against Spain, the Netherlands and Hungary.  Ciarán, who plays with Mallow United, is the sole Cork, and indeed Munster, representative to have been selected for this prestigious tournament and he is expected to earn his first cap for Ireland during the week.  On Friday morning (25th Jan. 2019) School Principal Pól Ó Síodhcháin in the presence of the Student Assembly and Staff presented Ciarán with a special certificate on behalf of the school.  He had his Ireland jersey with him and some of the School’s own soccer team kitted out for the occasion.   Ciarán’s mother, Marie, was also present for the uplifting occasion.  We extend sincere congratulations to the wonderfully talented Ciarán on such a magnificent sporting achievement.   We thank Principal Pól for alerting us to the presentation and for providing the background information.   Here we share a selection of some twelve images from the special event.   Even a splendid rainbow appeared over the School following the occasion!  Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
