Congrats to Millstreet Junior Hurlers who beat Tullylease in the preliminary round of the Duhallow Hurling Championship in Kanturk today by 6-10 to 2-8, scoring more goals than England left in today! The next round is against Banteer next weekend.
Also congratulations to St.Johns who defeated Lismire in the replay of Junior B County Qualifier Semi-Final by 1-13 to 0-8.
Two Millstreet girls from the Presentation National School were representing Cork at football and camogie recently. Máire Ellen O’Connor was playing in the U12 interval game at the Cork v Tipperary Munster Senior Hurling Championship game in Páirc Uí Chaoimh, while Shauna O’Sullivan played the following Sunday in Fitzgerald Stadium Killarney the following weekend, as Cork U12 took on Kerry U12 in the interval game during the Munster Quarter Final between Cork and Kerry. Well done to the girls.
Did you know – that due to an abandonment or objection in 1901, the Munster Quarter final Replay between Cork and Kerry was held in Millstreet, with Cork winning on a scoreline of 0-8 to 0-6. But where was the match played back then as the current Town Park was only opened in the 1950s or 60s?
Millstreet u12 Footballers – Duhallow Champions after a victory over Boherbue by 3-9 to 2-11. Millstreet retained their Duhallow U12 Football League title after surviving a searching test from Boherbue in a marvellous decider in Newmarket, with three goals from Alex Lee helping them to victory in the end.

Niall Kelleher from Aubane who played with Millstreet and Duhallow throughout his career this year has taken charge of the Cork Junior footballers. The Juniors square up to Kerry in Killarney next Sunday before the Senior Game, but with a team totally changed from last year as they won the All-Ireland last Summer.
Also watch out for up and coming star Shauna O’Sullivan of the Millstreet Girls School in the U12 Game at half-time at the match.
Newly formed GAA club St. Johns (who are loosely based in the Aubane / Kilcorney area) are in Championship action tonight against Lismire in the Duhallow Junior B Championship opener. The match throws in at 8pm in Banteer. Go along and give them the support they deserve for all their hard work.

Millstreet take on Banteer in the Final of the Duhallow Junior B Hurling League for 2009 in the Town Park tonight at 7:30. It was postponed at the end of last year due to a bereavement in the Banteer Club, and later because of the bad winter weather, and is only being played now. Go down and give the lads your support this evening.
Result: they won a hard game by 2-8 to 0-6 in which they led by 1-4 to 0-2 at half time, but then looked like throwing away for the first 15 minutes of the second half as Banteer scored three points on the trot, before finding their footing again, popping over a few points, and then a late goal sealed the result.

AN injury-time goal from Eoghan O’Connor allowed Kanturk pull the game of the fire with a last ditch equalising strike against Millstreet in the Ducon Cup played in Millstreet on Friday night (5th March 2010).
With no shortage of commitment in evidence, it allowed an equitable outcome emerged as a fair outcome. However Kanturk left it late, O’Connor rising up amongst a cluster of players to punch home the all important goal.
Millstreet faltered away to Knocknagree 2-7 to 0-10 in the Ducon Cup where goals either side of the interval paved the way for a home win. From a fast paced encounter, both sides enjoyed pockets of dominance yet Knocknagree just about deserved their three point win but not before they were made to sweat it out on a battling Millstreet.
A nip and tuck affair developed from the outset though Knocknagree shaded matters to secure a 1-3 to 0-4 interval advantage.
Back came a dogged Millstreet upon the resumption with Desmond O’Sullivan, Brian Sheahan and Mark Ellis to the fore. Points to Michael Murphy, Michael Vaughan and John Lehane offered encouragement.
However Knocknagree held the facility to respond and despite Millstreet’s best intentions, the game was wrapped up in favour of the home side with a late goal.
Millstreet lined out as Denis Kiely, Kevin Hickey, Desmond O’Sullivan, Patrick Randles, Donal O’Sullivan, Brian Sheahan, Eamon O’Keeffe, Patrick Coleman, Mark Ellis, Michael Murphy, Tadgh Collins, Michael Vaughan, Darren Murphy, John Lehane, James Broxton. Subs. Timothy Kiely, Eoin Crowley, Conor Lane.
The Munster Scór Sínsear semi-finals yesterday evening took place in Millstreet GAA Hall. There was a home victory for the Millstreet Question Time team. In a diverse cultural programme, Cork teams enjoyed success and progressing to the provincial final are:
DUHALLOW has welcomed a new club on the launch of the newly formed St John’s GAA club. The club takes its name from a landmark in the Aubane area and those associated with St John’s have a good reason to look forward with a buzz of exciting anticipation for the season that lays ahead.
It’s all of 28 years since a GAA club operated in the area.
For all concerned, it’s a challenging task in difficult times, yet meetings to date have delivered a positive and decidedly upbeat message about St John’s club on and off the field.
Officers elected for 2010 are President Denis Kelleher, Chairman John Twomey, Vice Chairman Jerry Kelleher, Secretary Don O’Riordan, Joint Treasurers Gerdi Buckley and Michael O’Riordan.
Currently they are training two nights a week, and new members are welcome to join the setup.
Millstreet’s Michael Vaughan won All Ireland with the Vocational Schools footballers last Saturday February 28th. Vaughan worked hard and played well throughout and notched up two points for his efforts as Cork edged out Monaghan on a scoreline of 3-8 to 2-7.
Sweet revenge for Cork as they shaded a gripping duel with Monaghan to lift the All-Ireland Vocational Schools senior football championship title in Dr. Cullen Park, Carlow, last Saturday.
It was Cork’s second victory in the final against Monaghan in three seasons, but they had been ousted at the semi-final stage in 2009 by the Farney County students, who went on to replace them as champions.
