Alan Cadogan Welcomed by Millstreet Camogie Team

On Wednesday, 13th June 2013 (Feast of St. Anthony of Padua) Millstreet Camogie Team extended a royal welcome to Cork Hurling Star Supreme – Alan Cadogan  who participated in a most impressive coaching session followed by the signing of an enormous number of autographs and standing in for numerous photographs.   Alan was most generous with his time, his interest and in his advice.   The overall event was kindly sponsored by CAB Motors, Cork and Millstreet won the recent competition on Facebook with the most “likes” with Deirdre Looney and her Co-workers coordinating the successful project.   Later we shall upload a full pictorial feature but here we share the overall Team Photograph with Alan Cadogan.  Despite the wet and windy conditions in the Town Park it was a most enjoyable occasion with an excellent Barbeque provided by Tony O’Brien and his Team.  Click on the image to enlarge.  (S.R.)

The Millstreet Camogie Cups

The weekend of the 29th of September proved to be a very exciting weekend for Millstreet Camogie. After the thrilling final of the Junior ladies in Eire Og the U13 junior juniors took the field in Mallow at 10am to compete in what was a Cork/Kerry Blitz, the inaugural Wallis Arms Challenge Cup.

The blitz was organised by Millstreet Camogie Club in association with the Munster Council. It was organised as a means of giving the U13 girls more games as the division can sometimes be a bit quiet.

It was to be a normal blitz with a few challenge games each but because of the generosity of sponsorship from Billy Sheehan @ The Wallis Arms Hotel in Millstreet it was made competetive.

Billy was kind enough to sponsor cups for the event which meant every team got the chance to compete for a place in a final with a gorgeous trophy to take home for their efforts.

Millstreet started off slow but overcame a very talented Kilworth team to win the 1st round. Next up were a strong Causeway group of girls.They put up a great fight but the Causeway ladies proved too strong and went on to win the A final in the end. Our U13 little stars never gave up and showed great character and went on to win against Killarney in the next round. This result qualified them to compete in the B final against a very skilled St. Fanahans panel. It was a very exciting game, even going to extra time with Millstreet winning by a small 2 point margin in the finish. This victory meant they took home the very impressive B trophy back to Millstreet and after a parade through the town the team were treated to a well deserved dinner and refreshments at the Wallis Arms again generously provided by Billy.

Millstreet Camogie Club would like to thank all the clubs, coaches, volunteers, referees parents, Mallow GAA, Munster Camogie Council, Wallis Arms Hotel and all the girls who made for an exciting and talented display of camogie. It’s safe to say the future of camogie in the Cork & Kerry region looks bright.

The winners on the day were;
A Final: Causeway
B Final: Millstreet
C Final: Kilworth
Both Millstreet Camogie Club and the Wallis Arms Hotel look forward to the continued success of this annual Challenge Cup.

To top off the week the girls went on to win their Avondhu final after another thrilling game again against St Fanahans which they won by a mere point. Well done to all!
