Vaughan playing for Cork VEC Senior Hurlers

Michael Vaughan from Millstreet Community School was playing for Cork Vocational Schools in the Senior Hurling Championship Quarter-Final last Saturday (Jan 30th 2010) in what proved to be yet another defeat to Kilkenny. In at corner forward he managed a point in a game that was to-ing and fro-ing throughout.

… and Cormac Heffernan were both on the mark in the 45th minute, sweeping to 1-14 to 3-5. Michael Vaughan did reply a minute later but the dynamic had decisively changed. Then, after a melee in their defence …

Kilbrin prove Millstreet’s nemesis in the Championship

John Tarrant takes a look back on the hurling year that was in Duhallow GAA

THE second part of the Millstreet GAA review focuses on hurling where a number of teams came up short in both league and championships.

Dwelling on the JAHC, a powerful surge in extra time allowed Kilbrin pull away from a gritty Millstreet to secure a 422 to 5-15 win in a dramatic first round played in Banteer. From a hotly competitive and a pulsating encounter, the pace and the tempo of the game was frantic from the outset and with 46 scores in total registered confirmed those in attendance received value for money.

Thereafter, Millstreet flattered to deceive where a sharper Freemount possessed too much firepower for Millstreet on recording a 3-12 to 2-12 triumph in the 2nd round qualifier played in Kanturk. At the end of the hour, Millstreet yielded to the greater stickwork and greater combined play of Freemount.

Mark Ellis on Cork Senior Hurling Panel

The Cork Senior Hurling panel to play UCC on Sunday at 2pm in Páirc Uí Rinn in the Waterford Crystal Cup, has been published by the Cork GAA, and it includes our own Mark Ellis.
It looks like a development squad because none of the the main stars are included, but it is definitely a step in the right direction.

The full panel of players can be viewed on the Cork GAA Website, and the Examiner carries the team with a report also.

Update Monday 18th Jan: Unfortunately he didn’t get a run out on the day as a disappointing Cork side fell away totally in the second half to lose by 1-12 to 1-7.

A year of highs and lows for our Footballers

THE first part of the Millstreet GAA review focuses on  Millstreet GAA clubs Football season 2009

Millstreet GAA hosts its AGM in Millstreet GAA Community Hall on this Friday night commencing at 8pm. Looking at a football review this week, the JAFC campaign began on a 0-11 to a 0-7 defeat to defending holders Cullen. There was no disputing that Cullen were worthy winners yet Millstreet paraded six minor players over the hour and delivered a creditable showing.

Subsequently, Millstreet cantered clear of Newmarket 4-16 to 0-9 in the second round. Once Millstreet got into their stride upon the resumption, they possessed far too many aces in the pack for a second string Newmarket combination.

U21 Hurling Championship: Millstreet 2-4 0-15 Kilbrin

A CONTROLLED display helped Kilbrin overcome a battling Millstreet in the Duhallow U21 Hurling Championship semi final played at a bitterly cold Meelin last Sunday.

A chilly wind cut through the proceedings yet at least, the hurling warmed the dedicated patrons viewing the fare on offer. And at the end of the hour, Kilbrin hurled with far greater passion and purpose.

Millstreet put together a decent account of themselves and though goals brought them back into contention, Kilbrin held a facility to respond, their self belief unshakeable to sway matters.

Youghal defeat Millstreet U16s in County Championship

YOUGHAL withstood a determined finish from Millstreet in a keenly contested County U-16 ‘B’ Football Championship semi final played at a rainlashed Mourneabbey last Monday.Weather conditions were anything but suitable for the game and great credit must go to both set of players for serving up a high standard of play given the wretched rain that prevailed in the opening half. At the end of the hour, there could be no argument about the outcome, Youghal were far, the hungrier side, their application superb and in general, the East Cork boys emerged much more enterprising in the prevailing conditions.

JB Hurling Championship V Lismire

Throw-in by the ref
Throw-in by the ref

Yesterday Millstreet defeated Lismire in a keenly contested Duhallow Junior B Hurling Championship in Millstreet Town Park by a scoreline of 2-7 to 0-9.

A tough but low scoring first half saw the teams deadlocked at four points a piece at half time. The heavy rain over the previous few days meant that the ball was slow to move along the ground, but Millstreet appeared to have the upper hand when the ball was off the ground and should have been ahead at the half. The start of the second half saw Millstreet move two points ahead, but then struck the killer blow with a goal and two points in quick succession seeming to secure the match. In the last few minutes Lismire tagged over three points, but it was not enough to overcome a competent Millstreet side.

They move onto the semi-final where they will meet Dromtarriffe (again) who they beat in the first round, but have been automatically byed in the semi final! Only in Duhallow. More pictures below:

A few pictures of Anna Buckley’s day out in Croke Park on Sept 28th. She won this through a competition she entered as part of the GAA Summer Cúl Camp sponsored by VHI, that took place in Millstreet this year.
