We beat City Wanderers 3-2 in CIT this morning (Sunday 5th September). City Wanderers started better but were unable to create much until they went ahead after 20 mins with a well worked goal. We responded well and had a great chance for Chris Cleary but his shot went over the bar. 5 mins before half time we were level. Finbarr Corcoran sent a long ball out of defense and Tadhg Collins beat the keeper in a race for the ball to slot home. The second half saw us dominate but [read more …] “Millstreet Celtic 3 City Wanderers 2”
The superby talented Duhallow based “Loose Connection” Band have just released a truly fantastic song entitled “A Rebel’s Cry” in honour of Cork’s All-Ireland Football Championship Match with Down at Croke Park on Sunday, 19th September 2010. This is a splendidly lively and hugely appropriate song with Seán Moylan as main vocalist. It is performed with mighty enthusiasm by the very popular Band. Hopefully it could very well feature on RTE’s “Up for the Match”. Judge for yourself as you can now view the excellent video and hear the brilliant song. Now available on YouTube on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHszrnhKhtk (Google YouTube Music and search for A Rebel’s Cry by Loose Connection.) “A Rebel’s Cry” is written by Seán Moylan, produced by Neil Moylan at EQUINOX STUDIOS and performed by “Loose Connection”. Members of the Band: Cian Daly, Denis Meade, Neil Moylan, Mick Tobin and Seán Moylan. Having viewed the video and heard the song it’s surely a case of “Up Cork!” … and… “Every Success on 19th September”. (Seán)
3rd September 2010: We got off to the perfect start with a goal in the 3rd minute. A free kick from Tadhg Collins was saved by the keeper but Michael Murphy was following it in and finished to give us the lead. We had a couple of half chances in the next 20 mins but Macroom were dangerous when they went forward as well. In the 25th minute Mark Ellis received the ball on the wing and played a clever pass inside for M Murphy who rifled a volley to the top corner from the edge of the box to make it 2-0. We got a bit sloppy for the last 10 of the half but went in to the break 2-0 up. We picked up our game at the start of the 2nd half and went 3-0 up after 55 mins. From a corner on the left, Finbarr Corcoran saw his header saved but the rebound fell to Paul Dawson who slotted home. We sat back to quickly after this goal and were punished 5 mins later when they scored from a corner. 10 mins later they scored again to set up a nervy last 20 mins but we held on for an important 3 points. Best on the day for us were Eamon O Keeffe, Finbarr Corcoran and Michael Murphy.

Yesterday saw the end of an era as Seán Radley officially retired from his teaching position in the Presentation National School. As a teacher he has been renowned for the quality of his work, emphasised by the fact that he was asked to give lectures in universities in Cork and Dublin. Most in Millstreet know Seán through the schools, or through his tremendous work in the community with Millstreet Museum, LTV2, and more recently here on millstreet.ie, and his efforts in the community are appreciated by all. We wish him well with this transition, and we are sure that he’ll be as ever-present in the community as before.

Killowen’s first away fixture of the campaign ended in defeat as costly errors in the second period contributed to Millstreet’s victory. Despite a promising first half showing, Killowen faded badly in the final quarter, as Millstreet’s superior fitness and teamwork prevented any notions of a Killowen comeback. The Killowen line up featured new signing Jason Mc Carthy in midfield with experienced ‘keeper Eamonn Murphy resuming in goal. Millstreet opened with a number of long range efforts that didn’t trouble Murphy whereas Killowen’s main source of attack stemmed from Pa Bermingham’s excursions down the left wing. Millstreet had a goal disallowed for pushing in the area before Owen Braun set up Declan O’ Brien after 27 minutes but his effort was blocked. [read more …] “Millstreet Celtic 4 Killowen 0”

Fondest greeting dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this beautiful Tuesday morning the last day of August.
The beautiful weather continues to make work and play very enjoyable for everyone. For the past couple of weeks people are out picking blackberries, some for the very first time and seeking advice from the more experienced about how to make jam, the proper sugar to use, how to freeze them and so on. On the wider scale the grain harvesting is almost complete with returns as were seldom seen as good before, and prices up 50%, because of the drought in other countries. Everything else like silage, potatoes, vegetables etc. falls into the same line. The fine weather brought young and old out in the great out of doors to enjoy country walks, trips to the sea, or just messing around at home.
The schools are re-opening this week and for once the children have a fine summer to their backs as they face the confines of the classroom. And please be on the lookout for the extra traffic ,especially around schools, school buses and so on.
