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:
Recently I was reading that Eircom had no plans to roll out broadband to Cullen so I decided to have a look and see what the story was. Essentially, Eircom is saying that it has no plans to upgrade the following local exchanges:
- Berneys Cross
Their reason is mainly economic: that there’s not enough houses locally to justify the cost of upgrading the exchanges.
I know that PermaNet are able to supply wireless broadband to some of these areas, but if you want it through your phone line, you’ll really have to get onto your local representatives to push to get it changed.
It’s not that long ago since we had no broadband in Millstreet (about 6 years now), and the only reason that Eircom upgraded its servers to DSL at the time was because they heard that PermaNet were setting up in Millstreet, and wanted to grab market share before PermaNet could set up their infrastructures. As usual, it’s business before people.

THE absence of the sound of hooves at Millstreet Horse Show last August, after the show was canceled, cost the region €10 million, according Green Glens owner Noel C Duggan, who has announced plans for a whole new show next year.
The ‘man of steel’ told The Corkman that it is “full steam ahead” for next year’s show with the Green Glens committing to reviving one of the highlights of the showjumping year in Ireland…………
Last week we carried a short sniplet from the Irish Independant newspaper which said that there would be a horse show in Millstreet in summer of next year. The Corkman this week carries a more in-depth article and the full article can be read here.
For the views of the competitors themselves, there’s a discussion on boards.ie that sheds some more light on the topic.
Sean has been nominated in the “Arts, Culture & Media” Section for his work documenting community life in Millstreet for the last 40 years. He will be accompanied at the awards ceremony by Mike and Kathy O’Connor who nominated him in the first case.
Lots of people (85+) have left comments on his nomination page, so go and show your support and gratitude too on that page. (comments are now closed)
Stephen O’Riordan who made the film “The Forgotten Maggies”, has taken it a step further and yesterday was spokesperson for the victims as they seek compensation for their years in the Magdalen laundries. There is an article in today’s Irish Independant on the topic, and there was an item on the RTE News last night which you can see if you click on the still image above (the article starts at 10:15 in the clip).
