Where are they now? – Dinny Long

DINNY LONG (Former Cork footballer)

Cork footballers won the Sam Maguire in 1973 and, three years later, Tralee’s Austin Stacks won the All-Ireland club championship. Dinny Long played on both of those teams and recalls that time with great pride.

“I was playing for Cork for years but moved clubs from Millstreet to Austin Stacks in the middle of my playing days. I was privileged to be part of those two teams, winning that senior All-Ireland was special but so was winning the club. It was a great time in my life.”

But Long was no stranger to success. Prior to winning a senior title, he had accumulated All-Ireland minor and U21 winner’s medals. Playing in Croke Park was a childhood dream for Long and one that he was determined to make a reality. [read more …] “Where are they now? – Dinny Long”

Corks Physio

Congrats to Mick O’Leary who has been physio with the Cork footballers for the last few years.

… a very popular figure in the squad, is also a key man and has been in the backroom team  the last couple of years and his role, like Frank, is to ensure that the team is ready for battle.

Mick runs a Physiotherapy Clinic upstairs over Michael Thornton’s Duhallow Properties in the Square Millstreet. [read more …] “Corks Physio”

Winning Tickets for the All Irleland

John O’ Sullivan from Gortavhey was last week the lucky winner of two free tickets to the All Ireland Football Final in a competition run by the Corkman newspaper. John goes to a lot of the football matches so it was fitting that he won and didn’t have to be scouting around for tickets. The winning ticket was drawn out by Cork Selector Gerry O’Sullivan who would know John as he was for years a manager in Dairygold Millstreet.

All Ireland Football Champions :)

Cork captain Graham Canty ends a 20-year wait for Rebels everywhere, by lifting the Sam Maguire Cup at Croke Park after a one point win over Down in the 2010 All-Ireland final.

The result (0-16 to 0-15) was a huge relief after the game seemed to be going away from us in the first half, but a wonderful display in the second sealed the result.

There was a big crowd from Millstreet at the match. Hope they all get home in one piece. It looks like being a few good days and nights ahead!

Memories Of Toots Kelleher

In Gaelic Football for Cork and Millstreet Toots Kelleher did play
One of Ireland’s best forwards when in his prime day
One never found to be wanting when put to the test
For Club and for County he always performed at his best
That he never played a bad game a remarkable feat
One jubilant in victory and gracious in defeat
In Croke Park and Killarney, Cork, Coachford and Macroom
He made a big name for himself in the prime of his life’s bloom
The spirit of the true gael the great man personified
For his ability and sportsmanship in his chosen sport he became known far and wide
In Gaelic Football circles Toots Kelleher from Millstreet Town became a household name
In the length and breadth of Ireland he knew of widespread fame
Fond memories of the man he was to this day I retain
And often in my flights of fancy I watch him play again.

Down in Millstreet

… a few hardy Down souls are determined to fly their county’s flag in Cork.
Millstreet Community School’s John Magee is intensely proud of his Mourne Mountains roots and will be cheering on Down despite his admission that he loves living in north Cork.
“They are quietly confident of a Cork victory, but I think Down will hold a surprise up their sleeve,” he said.
And despite the fact that Millstreet, Charleville, Kanturk and Newmarket are a sea of Cork flags, he has proudly adorned his car and home in the Down colours.
“It’s all in good nature,” he said…

“A Rebel’s Cry” – Cork All-Ireland Song by “Loose Connection”

The superby talented Duhallow based “Loose Connection” Band have just released a truly fantastic song entitled “A Rebel’s Cry” in honour of Cork’s All-Ireland Football Championship Match with Down at Croke Park on Sunday, 19th September 2010.    This is a splendidly lively and hugely appropriate song with Seán Moylan as main vocalist.   It is performed with mighty enthusiasm by the very popular Band.    Hopefully it could very well feature on RTE’s “Up for the Match”.   Judge for yourself as you can now view the excellent video and hear the brilliant song. Now available on YouTube on  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHszrnhKhtk (Google YouTube Music and search for A Rebel’s Cry by Loose Connection.)   “A Rebel’s Cry” is written by Seán Moylan, produced by Neil Moylan at EQUINOX STUDIOS and performed by “Loose Connection”.   Members of the Band: Cian Daly, Denis Meade, Neil Moylan, Mick Tobin and Seán Moylan.  Having viewed the video and heard the song it’s surely a case of “Up Cork!” … and… “Every Success on 19th September”.   (Seán)

Cork v Dublin

The banter has been good ahead of the All-Ireland semi-final in Croke Park today. We’ve a few Jackeens in our midst, and the Dublin flag in the picture above has been lucky to stay in flying for the last few days. There’s a big crowd gone up to Croker for the day, the anticipation is building and the action gets under way in the next few hours time. May the best team win, and may that team be Cork!!

Final score Dublin 1-14 Cork 1-15. Victory for Cork, TBTG ;). The final is on September 19th.

Beaten by Dromtarriffe

Millstreet Junior Footballers were beaten by Dromtarriffe in the Duhallow Junior A Football Championship tonight in Cullen. Drom’ will hardly ever have a better scoring day, as nearly everything they kicked went over the bar, while most of the Millstreet Kicks ended up either  wide or in the goalies arms, in what was a very frustrating evening of football for the Millstreet supporters.

Tadgh Collins got Millstreet off to a great start with a goal in the first few minutes, [read more …] “Beaten by Dromtarriffe”

* U14 Duhallow football league final: Millstreet V Kanturk. Tues 10th Aug in Boherbue 7:30pm
* Third Round Duhallow Junior Football ChampionshipMillstreet -v- Dromtariffe in Cullen on Friday 13th Aug 7:15pm

* Cork Minor Football League Group 2: Millstreet 1-9 Mallow 1-6. Wed 4th August

According to the Cork County Minor Board:

Section 2 has Mallow, Clonakilty, Donoughmore and Millstreet all on eight points. Kinsale are next two points adrift and with Glanmire, Sam Maguires and Bantry Blues still in contention its look likes it is going to go down to the wire before the outcome is finalised.

Cork Cruise through

It’s been a good weekend for Cork football fans in Croke Park. The seniors pulled away in the second half to beat Roscommon by 1-16 to 0-10, and now face Dublin in the All-Ireland semi-final in three weeks time. While earlier in the day, the minors scored a goal in the last kick of the game to beat Armagh by 3-11 to 0-19.
Millstreet were represented in Croke Park by the Comhaltas Group who provided the musical entertainment at half time in the Cork game (see the pic on the right), just as they did for the National League Final back in April.
But us Cork fans will be very happy that Kerry were dethroned yesterday by Down, and that we won’t have to try to beat them in Croker … that and the face that we won’t have to listen to the Kerry boys and girls for the Summer either :P
