St. John’s G.A.A. Club’s Magnificent Win This Weekend

Sincere congratulations to Aubane’s St. John’s G.A.A. Club’s truly magnificent win in the Junior B Football Championship on Saturday night in Millstreet Town Park.  The very popular Club has members from not just Aubane and Mushera but well beyond. At the Club’s Annual Church gate Collection over the weekend not just one but two superb Cups were proudly displayed.  Trainer Jimmy Murphy had a very busy schedule on Saturday night as he made it in time following the successful outcome in the important match to be present at “The Pub” in Carriganima to present substantial cheques to both Millstreet and Macroom Hospitals (fuller pictorial report on that event later) as a result of the Annual Fun Run in Carriganima.  Since this event began a most impressive €13,000.00 has been presented to assist fundraising in the hospitals.  Here we share some 11 images from the uplifting weekend.  Click on the pictures to enlarge.  (S.R.)

Munster Senior Hurling Championship in Millstreet

Cork Hurling History today remembers: “on this day in 1903 Cork and Kerry met in the Munster Senior Hurling Championship Semifinal, was played at the Sports Field in Millstreet. This was the first meeting of the counties since the 1892 Championship. The newspaper reports of the day did not provide much details of the scorers, but Cork opened with 2 points before striking for their first major and then rattled off 6 unanswered points before Kerry got their first point of the game. The halftime score line was Cork 1-08 to 0-01 for Kerry. The second half saw Cork open the scoring with their second goal and went on to seal a comfortable victory on a final score of Cork 2-11 to 0-03 for Kerry. This match was played in conjunction with the delayed 1902 Munster Senior Hurling Championship and Cork advanced to a Munster Final meeting with Limerick.”
