Junior B Hurling Final Tonght in the Park

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.

Ducon Cup: Millstreet 1-8 Kanturk 1-8

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.

Ducon Cup: Knocknagree 2-7 Millstreet 0-10

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.

St. Johns Football Club

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.

Vaughan tastes All Ireland Glory

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.

The match report below is from the Southern Star:

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.

U21 Championship: Millstreet 1-7 Kanturk 0-9

MILLSTREET produced a ripple of a surprise to shade matters over Kanturk in the opening round to the Duhallow U21FC played in Millstreet last Friday night.

For long stages, a sharper Millstreet looked the more complete side, their passing, teamwork and workrate commendable. Holding a two point interval advantage, Millstreet doubled their advantage upon the resumption.

However, Kanturk summoned a brave comeback and came ever so close to forcing the game into extra time. Millstreet’s game demanded a brand of defiance and they had it in abundance during the closing stages to swing matters.

U21 Football Championship Tonight 8pm

Millstreet play Kanturk in Millstreet Town Park tonight under lights at 8pm in the U21 Football Championship. (Note this is a change of venue as it was scheduled previously for Kiskeim)

From this weeks Corkman:

The appealing clash of Kanturk and Millstreet takes place in Millstreet on Friday night where both sides will look to emerging talent as future development. Kanturk fell to Newmarket in the last two campaigns but victory in the divisional JAFC will instil confidence in a side built around county players Lorcan McLoughlin and Aidan Walsh.

Millstreet look to promising talent that emerged at minor level, fronted by Mark Ellis and Darren Sheehan though though they will lack the experience of their opponents.

Result: Millstreet won by the solitary point 1-8 to 0-10 in what was said to be a superb match and a really good display by the Millstreet lads. Will try to get a write up for this in the next few days.

Other results in the U21 Football Championship were Newmarket 0-9 Boherbue 0-7; Kiskeam 2-4 Dromtarriffe 0-9; Knocknagree 1-8 Cullen 0-10; Lyre 3-7 Kilbrin 0-6.

Millstreet Matters 18th Feb 2010

Ballydaly is a community that holds a strong identity and sense to its name. Through its many organisations down through the years, Ballydaly has maintained and developed the area as a vibrant community.

Behind Ballydaly’s vibrancy is its Community Hall — that’s the hub centre to local life. And when the Hall reached its 50th Anniversary, friends and associates convened to honour the special occasion.

Through Chairman Tom O’Sullivan and Secretary Ritchie O’Connor, the Hall remains in active use and splendidly kept. The foresight to Ballydaly Hall surfaced on the endeavours of a committee coming together to construct a meeting place.

Cullen’s golden jubilee of rebirth

FIFTY years of gaelic games was acknowledged at a celebratory function by Cullen GAA in the Dromhall Hotel, Killarney on Saturday night.

When the Duhallow Board was set up in 1933, a GAA Club was formed in Cullen, the first President was Dr. Pat O’Callaghan, who twice won Olympic gold medals. Success came early to the club on capturing Duhallow Junior Football titles in 1936 and 1939.

During the war years, Cullen GAA fell into decline. However in 1959, Cullen GAA to re-establish itself as a dynamic outlet within its community. At times, success has been lean but with excellent playing facilities and a flourishing juvenile structure, the fortunes of Cullen GAA came on leaps and bounds.

Current chairman Dan Dennehy explained the second coming of Cullen GAA stemmed from a Vocational School in the Village, one of the teachers had three All-Ireland medals with Cork.
