On Saturday evening. our victorious U20 & Minor All-Ireland winners brought to Millstreet and Cullen the Tommy Markam Cup and the Clarke Cup, and were celebrated with a parade through town from the Macroom Road to the GAA Hall, followed by a reception in the GAA Hall.
Here are some of the photos form that great evening:
The largest crowd ever at a Scór Final was on May 22nd 1993, where close on 3000 people packed the Green Glens Complex in Millstreet, Co. Cork. Fear a’ Tí for the evening was G.A.A. legend Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh. Ballinamore born, Fr. Dan Gallogly was Cathaoirleach of the Coiste Cultúir. Below are photographs of all the competitors that took to the stage. [f][f2]
It was wonderful to hear today that Darragh Cashman had been chosen at wing-back in this year’s Electric Ireland Minor Football Team of the Year. It’s a fantastic achievement, but not really unexpected as his performances were great all year, performances that brought a lot of pride to Millstreet people watching them.
All Ireland Minor Football Final 2019 Cork 3-20Galway 3-14 (after extra time)
Congratlations to Darragh Cashman and Luke Murphy who played superbly yesterday, helping Cork to win their first All-Ireland Minor Football title in nineteen years. Darragh had a fine game from wing back, scoring points either side of half time, while Luke came on after 51 minutes, and held his nerve to score a superb crucial point to draw Cork level when time in the second half was nearly up. Two brilliant lads, they’re the first locals to win a minor since Seanie Barrett won with Cork in 1991.
UPDATE: Sincere congratulations to Darragh on his magnificent game this afternoon (1st Sept. 2019) in Croke Park as an all-important member of the Victorious Cork Team.

Best of luck to Darragh and Luke in the All Ireland Minor Football Final against Galway on Sunday in Croke Park.
For our Juvenile club, as all can see by the numerous best wishes given to the lads, this is the proudest achievement a club could receive to have two of our players representing our club on the biggest stage of all , on what could be an historical day in the lifetime of the GAA. Whatever about the Dublin/Kerry game, next Sunday it is all about Darragh and Luke for us. We have watched Darragh and Luke grow up into two fine young men and top players for club and county. Star quality was evident from an early age for both lads but quality alone won’t get you to the top. We in the club have witnessed the hard work, the sacrifices made, the injuries incurred, the thousands of miles travelled and the support of both families on their long journey that has now led to this wonderful occasion for us all on Sunday. This day is for Darragh and Luke but also for all the people involved in our club. From the young players who now have their own heroes to look up to and follow their example. From the parents of all the players in our club who have supported our club over the years. From the Coaches of all teams that have given up thousands of hours of their own time to develop our players. From the administrators and club officers of our club who also give up hours and do unseen work in the background. A day like this is what makes it all worthwhile and whatever the result, Darragh and Luke will always be heroes to us. For those who are lucky to have a ticket, make sure your voice is heard in support of our lads and for those that don’t , I am sure you will be glued to the television at 1pm on Sunday and if everything goes to plan then we will have victorious homecoming for the lads when they return home. Darragh and Luke , thank you for letting us share in this special occasion, enjoy your day no one deserves it more than you.
Best of luck, John O Riordan representing all from Duarigle Gaels Football Club & Millstreet Juvenile Hurling Club. And from all your supporters from the Millstreet and Cullen community.
Millstreet club will receive a limited allocation of tickets for the All Ireland football final on Sunday 1st September. Adult members are asked to contact the secretary, Sharon Lane by 9.00p.m. Monday night.
The best of luck to Conor O’Callaghan from Kilcorney, who will line out at corner back in the All Ireland Under 20 Hurling Final against Tipperary, this evening Saturday August 24th, at 6pm in the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick.
There will be live coverage on C103fm (radio) and TG4 (TV) with updates on Cork’s 96FM, Red FM, Radio na Gaeltachta, Cork GAA website and Twitter page, but nothing beats being there!!
