On June 29th 2020, Corkman Barry Sheehan started the challenge to RUN from Malin Head to Mizen Head….600+ km in one week to raise funds for Cappagh Kids.
He is running the equivalent of two marathons per day and will be passing through Millstreet either tomorrow or Saturday. It will be nice if we could give him a bit of support or even run some of the way with him.
If you are interested you can follow his progress on the Malin2Mizen for Cappagh Kids Facebook page.

We are disappointed to announce the cancellation of our Willie Neenan Memorial 5 mile road race which was to be held on 26th June next. Due to the current restrictions in place for Covid-19 it was an obvious but difficult decision to make. Please stay safe in these difficult times and lets look forward to next years race.
Fundraising event in aid of ICRR Rathcoole Air Ambulance, Kanturk and Millstreet Community Hospitals and The Burren Chernobyl Project.
As you are aware a number of GAA clubs have been using this time to raise funds for various charities while also getting some running in.
So over the past week both Kiskeam and Ballydesmond GAA clubs have decided to do our bit to help raise vital funds for our hospitals in Duhallow.
We see this as a great opportunity for our players to give something back to the community while also giving a sense of purpose to their running as they wait to get back on the playing fields. [read more …] “Duhallows Fittest GAA Club”
At the age of just 19 Mick Kennefick was the captain of the Cork Hurlers that won the All Ireland in 1943. He played with the ‘Barrs and was an immense talent, but unfortunately he broke his hand soon after and never played again. He was a carpenter by trade and was involved the rebuilding of the Mill in Millstreet after the fire in 1950’s. In the 60’s, he became a woodwork teacher and moved to Cullen where he taught for a number of years in Kiskeam Vocational School and Cullen, as well as doing some work for Noel C. Duggan builders. He was principal in Kiskeam until it closed in 1971, whereon he moved to become principal in Midleton. One of his daughters stayed and married in Aubane.
This week, Cork Hurling History resurrected a brilliant article on his life that appeared in the Cork Examiner some time ago. You can read it below: [read more …] “Mick Kennefick”

The racing scene for both juveniles and adults kicked off last weekend with the Lacey Cup in Tralee and the Ras Maigheo for the underage taking place in Mayo.
SLCC had six riders in the Lacey Cup – John R O’Sullivan, Richard Cleverly, Donie Kelleher, Denis Lynch, Denis O’Connor and Ben Murphy. The race featuring two major climbs Gleann na Gealt and Sliabh Mish was held in very difficult weather on Sunday last. Denis Lynch made the initial 8 man break on the first climb which was eventually reeled back on the decent into Annauscaul. A further break of 12 riders got away near Inch in the middle of the hailstone shower, unfortunately no SLCC rider made this break which stayed away to the finish in Tralee. Denis Lynch, Denis O Connor and Ben Murphy made it home in the second group with the remaining SLCC riders making it home safely in what was a very difficult days work. Well done to Tralee Manor West BC for a well organised event.
The juveniles made the trip to Mayo for the two day, three stage event, featuring a road race on Saturday morning and a TT in the afternoon with a second road race on the Sunday morning. Weather conditions were tough for the full weekend. The Saturday road race was based out of Louisburgh GAA as was the TT in the afternoon which was cut short by half given the now biblical conditions. The Sunday races rolled out of Westport and Murrisk, at the foot of Croagh Patrick. Sean P Fleming and Nicholas Buckley competed in the Under 12 race with Aidan Morley and Ciaran Finnegan competing at Under 16. Amy Fleming finished 3rd in the girls Under 16 with Kate Murphy 2nd in the girls U14. Well done to everyone who travelled and braved the weather, and well done to Westport Covey Wheelers for running a well organised event in such difficult conditions.
Best of luck to Amy and Kate who are part of a Munster Cycling Academy Team travelling to Southport, Liverpool for round one of the Dolan racing Series next weekend. Thanks to the Munster Cycling Academy for this fantastic opportunity.
Training for new juvenile members continues with beginners always welcome to our Saturday morning sessions. Please contact the club via Facebook for further information.
Anyone interested in training for the Ring of Kerry please contact the club via Facebook or 087 9178836.
