Cork City Walkers Visit Millstreet and Thoroughly Enjoy Clara Walk

Alerted by the recent "Irish Times" feature on the Clara Walk these wonderfully energetic members of a Cork City Walking Group (many of whom are members of a Cork Tennis Club) enjoyed not only a superb walk this evening (Sunday, 29th May 2011) but also a splendid picnic upon Clara Mountain. Meeting with the very fit Group at Mount Leader, LTV2's Brendan Murphy (on video camera) and I arranged to interview the sincerely friendly and very cheerful people for the Autumn Schedule of LTV2. They accorded much praise regarding the excellent Clara walkway. It's wonderfully uplifting noting the visit of such interesting people to our area who promote the advantages of such healthy outdoor pursuits. (Picture by Seán Radley for website and LTV2)

Reminders of the Anglo-Irish ascendancy

The Irish Times today profiles the walk up Clara Mountain bringing in Mount Leader House and other items along the route:
Reminders of the Anglo-Irish ascendancy are a compelling attraction on the way up Claragh Mountain.

THE GHOSTS of old estates with their haunting reminders of the Anglo-Irish ascendancy always provide a compelling attraction and I can mooch around them for hours, especially if they are not well frequented. Such is the case with the Mount Leader Estate through which the Duhallow Way provides access to Claragh Mountain (452m) whose profile provides such a fine backdrop to the town of Millstreet.

Kelleher in charge of Cork Juniors

The Corkman carries an article this week on the Cork Junior Team 2011, who have Niall Kelleher from Aubane is in charge again this year.

Pulling the strings on the sideline for Cork was Millstreet’s Niall Kelleher, who had served as a selector under previous boss Mossie Barrett of Donoughmore since 2004.
Cork had won three AllIreland titles in this period (2005, 2007 and 2009), and it was obviously disappointing for Kelleher that they should falter at the first hurdle under his stewardship 12 months ago.

Cork will play Clare in the Munster Junior Football Championship Quarter-Final on Sunday May 22nd at 1:30pm in Pairc Ui Chaoimh
