On last Friday Millstreet GAA Club received the Mayor’s recognition for the voluntary work they undertook during the Covid19 Pandemic crisis. The Club wish to thank Donagh Murphy, Killarney Road, who took on the role of co-ordinator and also the players and members who assisted him.
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”

An Interview with Con Hartnett 10th May 2004, By Danny O Neill
Four Millstreet men were on duty during that famous September day in 1973. Starring in the half~back line was Connie Hartnett as the Sam Maguire Cup was reclaimed by the rebels.
Born in 1951 Connie Hartnett was always destined to be a footballer as his mothers first cousin was Din Connors a member of the All~Ireland winning Cork team of 1945.
Ironically, Din Connors played at left~half back against Cavan in that final, the next time Cork would win an All Ireland another Millstreet man Connie Hartnett would be playing in the same position.
Growing up and playing with Millstreet, who were strong at underage level at that time, Con was picked for the Cork Minor team.”I was very lucky to be picked on such a talented team that won back to back All~Irelands in 1968 and 69. [read more …] “An Interview with Con Hartnett”
