The wonderfully successful Millstreet Cúl Camp 2021 concludes this Friday, 13th August 2021. On Thursday Cork Footballer Supreme, Seán Meehan (from Kiskeam) paid a greatly appreciated visit to the week long Cúl Camp where he was a true source of inspiration to the many young participants – signing jerseys, hurleys and helmets as well as sharing some of his magnificent football skills. Great credit is also due to the excellent Coordinators and Coaches during a week of mixed weather and having to adhere to the many rules during this COVID-19 era. Here we share a large selection of images from our visit to the outstanding Cúl Camp on Thursday, 12th August. Tap on the images to enlarge.

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 6th June
Once Flower Lodge, home to Cork Hibernians, Páirc Uí Rinn is now one of the GAA’s strongholds in Cork and named after one of the greatest hurlers of all time.
Christy Ring was a very close friend of the late Paddy Martin, the Taoiseach’s father and on this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, Mícheál Martin joins John Greene in the Stadium to talk about his life and times.
You’ll find the conversation moving swiftly from one subject to another.
Growing up in Turner’s Cross, soccer, hurling, dancing, the Gaeltacht, his international boxer father, becoming leader of his party and later Taoiseach, taking on the powerful tobacco industry and of course Covid-19 are some of the many subjects up for discussion.

This Sunday evening in the first of a two part programme on ‘Where the road takes me’, it’s a pre-lockdown journey through the vast parish of Ballinhassig.
John Greene begins in Ballinhassig, where police shot dead eleven people during a faction fight in 1845. However, there was little time to dwell on the tragedy, as the famine came hot on its heels and provided more to worry about.
Later, but not far away, the McCarthy family move to London after being evicted from their home. Their son Liam is born. His name is now synonymous with Michael Collins and Sam Maguire. As a result, the local GAA pitch is named in his honour and the cup for the winners of the All Ireland senior hurling championship bears his name.

What a night! Kilcorney’s Conor O’Callaghan captains Cork to victory over Tipp in Under 20 Munster Hurling Final this Wednesday evening, 23rd Dec. 2020. The exciting event was broadcast live on TG4. Sincere congratulations to Conor and the entire Cork Team on such a magnificent sporting achievement.
Colin O’ Riordan’s g-g-grandmother was born in Coomlogane, Millstreet, about 1853. She was Julia Corkery, sister of Big Jerh, and she marrried James Twohig of Banteer in 1884. Their daughter, Ellen Twohig married Thomas O’ Riordan of Farrendoyle in 1918. Ellen and Thomas O’ Riordan had 11 children, and are both buried in St. Patrick’s Cemetery, Millstreet.Colin’s gran-aunt, Julia, became a nun and was known as Sr. Agnes in Drishane Convent. Sr. Denise (Noreen) O’Riordan, was another gran-aunt of Colin O’ Riordan. Sr. Denise was a member of the Sisters of the Incarnate Word, Ohio, for 72 years and her passing earlier this year aged 87, marked the end of an era for that generation of the O’ Riordan family. Congratulations and continued success to Colin, his parents Michael and Imelda, and the extended O’ Riordan family in Farrendoyle and Tipperary.”
Colin’s wonderfully inspiring words following the historic win by Tipperary on Sunday, 22nd Nov. 2020:
“I can’t put it into words. It’s an emotional day for me. A few weeks ago I didn’t think I’d be here and just to be out there with the lads giving it your all for the sake of Tipperary, I can’t put it into words.
It’s the best feeling I’ve had in many years. It just fills me with pride so much, I get emotional even thinking about it. To me, it’s one of the best days of my life…
We’ve put in stepping stones with Tipp for a long time. Obviously I wasn’t there for the last few years, playing with Sydney or whatever. To come back to the stepping stones that these boys have out in for the last five years since I’ve been away.
This isn’t about me. It isn’t about Colin O’Riordan coming out to give interviews, it’s about the boys out here. To me, it means so much to be able to put on the Tipp jersey. It’s something I will never take for granted, it’s something I’ll respect to the day I die, that I had the opportunity to wear the jersey.
It’s a massive opportunity for me. I just want to say that I’m extremely thankful to Sydney for giving me the opportunity to play this game.
They were 100 per cent within their rights to say no to me and refuse me permission to play. They had no problem. John Longmire and all these lads over there with the Sydney Swans are an incredible organisation.”

Poet supreme, Francis Duggan composed this very special poem some time ago remembering Vincent Coakley. Vincent went to his Eternal Reward during this past week. R.I.P.. We thank Con Meade for alerting us to this truly superb poem. (S.R.)
A tall and classy Gaelic footballer the midfielder complete
Aghinagh’s Vincent Coakley played for Aghinagh and Cork and Millstreet
He and Kippagh’s Con O’Connor the best midfielders in Cork at their best
Were never found to be wanting when put to the test
Though this is going back some three decades in time
I remember Vincent Coakley in his physical prime
For Millstreet he gave many a memorable display
Perhaps in his dark hair there is gray today
Beyond Aghinagh he is one widely known
The Millstreet fans did claim Vincent for their own
And why not they for he was a fine sporting player
Not many at his best who with him could hope to compare
On Sundays in Summer in Seasons long gone
In Cork County Championship games in Coachford and Macroom we cheered Millstreet on
Though down on the scoreboard the Finnowsiders were fighting back
With O’Connor and Coakley at midfield sending them to attack
