1974 Kerry V Cork Munster Final

There is some fascinating Archive Footage (of interest to older!  Millstreet GAA fans) of the 1974 Kerry V Cork Munster Final available on youTube . Cork won in very poor conditions. All the Millstreet players were excellent but it may well have been Humphrey Kelleher’s (#3) best performance in a Cork jersey. Dinny Long (#8) showing Mick O Connell the ball also must have gone down very  well with Kerry supporters at the time!  John Coleman #6, and Connie Hartnett #7.

Wonderfully Successful Games at Millstreet Town Park on Sunday Blessed with Excellent Weather

On Sunday, 23rd September 2018 the annual GAA Hurling Games for the Connie Kelleher Memorial Trophy, the Tommy O’Connor and Alan O’Connor Memorial Trophies took place in splendid weather at Millstreet Town Park.  This year a magnificent Trophy in memory of the late Connie Hickey (who was a dedicated Coach) was introduced and presented by the Hickey Family.  The event was superbly organized with the inclusion of Millstreet Pipe Band, the flying of the National Flag and the presentations at the GAA Community Hall followed by excellent refreshments for everyone.  A huge attendance was in evidence with many people travelling from afar for the special occasion.   The dedicated Committee with such people as Mag O’Connor and John O’Riordan and many others ensured a most successful annual event.  Here we share the first of our pictorial recordings from the uplifting occasion.  Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)

Munster Senior Hurling Championship in Millstreet

Cork Hurling History today remembers: “on this day in 1903 Cork and Kerry met in the Munster Senior Hurling Championship Semifinal, was played at the Sports Field in Millstreet. This was the first meeting of the counties since the 1892 Championship. The newspaper reports of the day did not provide much details of the scorers, but Cork opened with 2 points before striking for their first major and then rattled off 6 unanswered points before Kerry got their first point of the game. The halftime score line was Cork 1-08 to 0-01 for Kerry. The second half saw Cork open the scoring with their second goal and went on to seal a comfortable victory on a final score of Cork 2-11 to 0-03 for Kerry. This match was played in conjunction with the delayed 1902 Munster Senior Hurling Championship and Cork advanced to a Munster Final meeting with Limerick.”
