Cycling adventure

The “Lost/Stolen Panniers” has been found and safely returned to it’s owner.  Delighted that she can continue on her adventures with her bicycle  and panniers in and around the Country.

She sometimes writes a blog when  she goes cycling but  wouldn’t normally write one when it was as short a trip as yesterday, but the kindness which   was shown to her prompted her to highlight Millstreet with Cork’s Old Butter Road .

An Interview with Con Hartnett

An Interview with Con Hartnett
10th May 2004, By Danny O Neill

Four Millstreet men were on duty during that famous September day in 1973. Starring in the half~back line was Connie Hartnett as the Sam Maguire Cup was reclaimed by the rebels.
Born in 1951 Connie Hartnett was always destined to be a footballer as his mothers first cousin was Din Connors a member of the All~Ireland winning Cork team of 1945.
Ironically, Din Connors played at left~half back against Cavan in that final, the next time Cork would win an All Ireland another Millstreet man Connie Hartnett would be playing in the same position.
Growing up and playing with Millstreet, who were strong at underage level at that time, Con was picked for the Cork Minor team.”I was very lucky to be picked on such a talented team that won back to back All~Irelands in 1968 and 69.  [read more …] “An Interview with Con Hartnett”
