Sincere congratulations to Millstreet’s wonderfully talented Soccer Player, Colin Healy who today (Friday, 17th June 2022) was a superb member of the Cork U14 Schoolboys League Soccer Team in Limerick winning the highly prestigious Kennedy Cup in the Final with the score of Cork 2 to Waterford 0. This is the first time in 33 years since Cork has won this very important Final with Roy Keane playing in that match.

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my report.
It’s hard to imagine that my next Report (dv) after this one will be on the longest day of the year. June 21. So don’t say that I didn’t tell you that the year is moving on. Moving on it is and we can’t stop it but are we making the full use of the passing days and weeks and months. There is no use in blaming the weather because we can do nothing about it but there are things that we can do regardless. The old saying the It’s better to light a candle than curse the dark, can also apply to the way that we can motivate ourselves into taking on a plan B if the sun don’t shine. God Bless our crowd of who headed off on a bus to Donegal on Monday morning 50 plus of them both men and women for four days all organised by our excellent Active Retired Committee. I know they will love it because I went on the very same program a few years ago with a lovely group from Castlemagner. But as I’m not the sit-at-home type I’ve booked a couple of more locally based trips. For a mere €25 the well known Jerry Lehane will take us on day trips around the rings of Kerry or Beara and even to Galway and more. He knows all the best places to stop and shop and eat and stretch the legs. In his very own relaxing way. Look him up on our website for details.
Congratulations to the U14 Duarigle Gales footballers who won the North Cork Division 2 Plate vs Fermoy last night.
Looking for a house to rent for myself, my partner and my little boy in Millstreet/Macroom/Kanturk or any surrounding area. We are not too fussy but ideally would like 2 or more bedroom with a small garden.
Please contact Megan on 085 281 5530.

Michael Tarrant has shared the following in remembering Breeda: “On Saturday, 4th June 2022 we got to bury my mother’s ashes in St. Mary’s Cemetery as were her wishes. I would like to thank people that made it a special day for us as a family. Canon John Fitzgerald and Sharon Lane for their help with organising the Mass. Edel Frazer and Niamh O’Mahony for the wonderful music in the Church. Marie Twomey for playing the bagpipes at the grave and Davy Tarrant also. Humphrey Healy and Caroline and Staff at the Bridge Bar, Millstreet for looking after us so well. Thanks to everyone who travelled from near and far to be with us.”
