“A commanding defensive display from Ellis was instrumental in Cork’s victory today – catching many of the opposing puck-outs in a wonderful show of aerial ability. Although Pauric Mahony did enjoy the odd score, there is no denying that Ellis won the battle with his marker for the most part. There was simply no getting past the Millstreet man today, and he complemented a fine individual performance with a superb score in what was arguably one of his best displays in a Rebels jersey.” – Pundit Arena
Mark was interview after the game by Mark Dinan of Red FM. Listen to it here from the Big Red Bench podcast (41:35-44:15)

The best of luck to Kevin Crowley who has been named at wing back for the Cork Footballers as they take on Waterford in this evening’s (Saturday 27th May) Munster Senior Football Championship quarter-final in Fraher Field, Dungarvan @ 7pm.
Having played with Cork in the league for a few seasons, he has thankfully avoided injury this season and has his first Championship start.
Result: Waterford 1-11 Cork 1-12 – See photos and match reports below:
A few short years ago we were thrilled when Mark Ellis became the first Millstreet hurler on the Cork Senior Hurling team. Now in command of the centre back spot he is one of the senior players on the team, much is expected of him and others as Cork take on Tipperary today with a host of new players.
Cork beat Tipp in the league earlier in the year, but Tipp are smarting a big defeat in the league final. Expect Mark to drop back in front of his full back to help prevent goals, but it won’t be easy for Cork today against the All Ireland champions.
Munster SHC quarter-final: Tipperary v Cork, Semple Stadium, 4pm. There will be live coverage of the game on RTÉ2 (TV), RTE Radio, C103, Radio na Gaeltachta with updates on Cork’s 96FM, Red FM, Cork GAA website and Twitter page, but nothing beats being there!

Far north of this countryside near Warrnambool
In the mid to late fifties in Millstreet Town i went to primary school
Years later one who would prove himself a man among men
Humphrey Kelleher was the strong boy of the schoolyard back then
Humphrey as a young teenager full of youthful elan
As a boy tall and sturdy and as strong as a man
Not gentle or shy but not a bully in any way
Yet any boy who tested his might had some price for to pay [read more …] “The Strong Boy Of The Schoolyard”
Commiserations to Shane Hickey (Millstreet) and Evan Murphy (Dromtarriffe) who played with the Cork Minors who lost the Munster Minor semi-final last night to Kerry, but it’s great vindication for the local clubs to see more of our lads making the grade and playing in the Cork geansaí. Evan goaled after ten seconds, and added another two points during the game, while Shane came on after half time, but Kerry weren’t for stopping at that stage.

Recently at the Wallis Arms Hotel on two separate nights Millstreet / Duarigle Gaels Juvenile GAA celebrated with a superb Victory Social – on the Friday night with the younger members and on the Saturday night with the more senior players. Here we share images from the first occasion where Sportsman Supreme, Kevin Crowley was the Guest of Honour who presented the wonderfully successful players with their medals. The Disco which followed the meal, presentation and speeches – with very popular D.J. Kieran – was hugely enjoyed by the young players. Great credit is due to the many dedicated Coaches and Coordinators. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)And we share a further selection of pictures from the splendid annual occasion.

Inis Oírr, in Inis Oírr, ní raibh eolas agam ar fhaitíos,Ná ar an dólás a stopfadh gáirí,Go dtí an lá duairc úd nuair a sheol mo ghrá uaim. Tháinig scamall ar an ngrian, is é dorcha ina dhiaidh. The Funeral. [Lonely Girl 18]

SportsJOE have a competition as to who had the best amateur GAA images of 2016. From the middle-aged dad contemplating one more time round the GAA sun, to the fan asleep in the ditch, the umpire taking snaps in a blizzard or the TV-watching lamb.
Our own Eric Hickey is one of the final twelve with his photo that was “Taken April in Ballydesmond while I was umpire”.
He needs your votes to win the prize, so go to SportsJOE and vote for the “Ballydesmond Blizzard”. (He’s not doing too bad at the moment with 40% of the vote already).
