The determination and the inspiration of the team was matched only by the enthusiasm of the team’s willing band of supporters that saluted Millstreet team captain Thomas Walsh on landing the county trophy.
Delirious supporters welcomed home the new county kingpins to a victory parade. Millstreet Pipe Band led a parade from Minor Row to a reception in the club’s Community Hall.

A sharper Millstreet regained the Duhallow on a merited win over Kanturk in the Duhallow U12B Football Championship Final played in Newmarket.
From a competitive encounter, Millstreet didn’t have matters all of their own way but a better balanced team effort landed the ultimate spoils. However weren’t it for a series of magnificent saves in both halves by Millstreet ‘keeper Dylan O’Leary, Millstreet might well had been troubled early in the game.
Defences dominated a low scoring opening twenty minutes before Millstreet proceeded to raise the tempo. Darren Kiely kicked a trio of points before Shane Hickey netted a goal to allow Millstreet enjoy a 1-4 to 0-2 advantage at the break. Kanturk resumed with renewed urgency yet they had reason to regret some wasted possession and the heroics of Dylan O’Leary between the Millstreet posts thwarted their efforts.
Millstreet held the facility to respond and a delightful chipped goal from Thomas Walsh appeared good enough for Millstreet to record a comprehensive win.
Kanturk never gave up and a late flourish yielded a pair goals that came too late to alter the outcome.

Millstreet savoured the taste of victory in the Co. non exam minor hurling league 12 aside final by overcoming Courcey Rovers 2-10 to 1-6 played in Ovens. The contest was delayed 15 minutes owing to rain sheeting down on the proceedings. Despite the slippery conditions, there could be no disguise the superiority of Millstreet.
All through, Millstreet hurled with the greater confidence and that was good enough to keep the Carrigdhoun side at bay. Owing to the conditions, scoring was at a premium early on and the prematch cloudburst ensured the early exchanges were bereft of free flowing hurling.
However Millstreet’s cause was boosted in the 9th min on a probing delivery by Michael Vaughan saw Michael Murphy get a stick to flick to the Courceys net.
A follow up point from Barry O’Reilly confirmed Millstreet’s stature. Courceys did open their account yet all the initiative stemmed and drive stemmed from Millstreet. They kept a foothold on the game thanks to the tenacious play of Dean Desmond, Tim Fitzgerald, Mark Ellis, Michael Vaughan and Darren Sheehan.
Two points in quick succession to Vaughan confirmed Millstreet’s supremacy yet they were jolted on a Courceys goal. However, Millstreet bounced back immediately and though Michael Vaughan was denied of a possible goal, Michael Murphy was on hand to steer the rebound home.
ourceys did answer to narrow the arrears 2-3 to 1-3 at the break.
Millstreet took up the running upon the resumption on quick fire points by Michael Murphy and Darren Sheehan.
Courceys attempted a comeback yet all they could show to their interval tally was three pointed frees. Territorially, Millstreet dominated and though some wayward shooting limited progress, their persistence paid off with points from Michael Vaughan, Darren Sheehan and David McCaul.

In fairness, both sides made a concerted effort in the glue like underfoot conditions to serve up a competitive hour’s hurling in the deplorable weather.
However, once Millstreet asserted their authority midway through the second half, there was never a doubt about the outcome and it allowed Millstreet take the inaugural Dave Hallahan Memorial Cup.

Rovers attempted to retrieve the situation but it failed to halt Millstreet from gaining a 0-5 to 0-2 interval advantage.
Matters looked ominous for Rovers upon the resumption as Millstreet restarted with the strong elements behind their backs. However as a sleet shower descended on the proceedings, Crokes rose to the challenge.

Scoil Mhuire Millstreet 2-8
St Mary�s B.N.S.Carrigtwohill 0-4
The sun came out and the dark clouds lifted when the teams came out to contest the boy�s F4 final which was the second match on the Allianz Sciath na Scol football programme at P�irc Ui Rinn yesterday.
With wind advantage Millstreet built up a six point lead by half-time, which was to prove too much for a gallant Carrigtwohill side, whose failure to score from play when winning possession was to prove costly.
The East Cork school opened with a point from an Alan Goggin free in the first minute, but he was to prove their only scorer in the first half when adding two more frees. Millstreet�s best player on the day, midfielder Michael Vaughan scored three points from frees as well as playing outstanding football.
The only goal of the first half came to the North Cork school�s half forward Eric Hickey who beat the busy Carrigtwohill goalkeeper Kieran Baverstock after five minutes. Hickey kicked another good point from 25 metres, with Alan O Connor and half back John O Mahony also scoring to help their side into a 1-6 to 0-3 half-time lead.
St Mary�s made a positional change at the start of the second half, with full-back P�draig Hogan moving to midfield joining the hard-working Cian Buckley with Colm Cronin switching to full-back. These three players won an amount of ball, but the forwards failed to convert possession into scores.
After 11 minutes of close football that did not yield a score, the stylish Vaughan set up Kieran Fraser for a point and when Millstreet scored their second goal through Daniel Daly 13 minutes into the second half, it silenced the Carrig following.
When Shane Devlin scored his only score from play in stoppage time it was just a consolation as Scoil Mhuire Millstreet deserved their win.
Millstreet; E Hickey 1-1, D Daly 1-0, M Vaughan 0-3 f, J O Mahony, A O Connor, K Fraser, M Buckley 0-1 each.
