Fundraising event in aid of ICRR Rathcoole Air Ambulance, Kanturk and Millstreet Community Hospitals and The Burren Chernobyl Project.
As you are aware a number of GAA clubs have been using this time to raise funds for various charities while also getting some running in.
So over the past week both Kiskeam and Ballydesmond GAA clubs have decided to do our bit to help raise vital funds for our hospitals in Duhallow.
We see this as a great opportunity for our players to give something back to the community while also giving a sense of purpose to their running as they wait to get back on the playing fields. [read more …] “Duhallows Fittest GAA Club”
Hi, does anybody have photographs from the 1973 All Ireland Football Final homecoming, where over 5,000 people lined the town of Millstreet? Has anybody photographs from it? I would love to see them please let us know if you have.
Congrats to Shane Hickey who is scheduled to get his first start for the Cork Senior Footballers tomorrow evening, Thursday January 2nd 2020 at 7:30pm in Mallow. Last year he was part of the Cork under 21’s who claimed the All-Ireland title, so hopefully this will be the first of many. [GAA Cork]
An Interview with Con Hartnett 10th May 2004, By Danny O Neill
Four Millstreet men were on duty during that famous September day in 1973. Starring in the half~back line was Connie Hartnett as the Sam Maguire Cup was reclaimed by the rebels.
Born in 1951 Connie Hartnett was always destined to be a footballer as his mothers first cousin was Din Connors a member of the All~Ireland winning Cork team of 1945.
Ironically, Din Connors played at left~half back against Cavan in that final, the next time Cork would win an All Ireland another Millstreet man Connie Hartnett would be playing in the same position.
Growing up and playing with Millstreet, who were strong at underage level at that time, Con was picked for the Cork Minor team.”I was very lucky to be picked on such a talented team that won back to back All~Irelands in 1968 and 69. [read more …] “An Interview with Con Hartnett”

The best of luck to Shane Hickey this evening (Friday July 7th 2019), where he will line out at centre-back for Cork in the EirGrid Munster Under 20 Football Semi-Final against Waterford at 7pm in Clonakilty.
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 by 1-11 to 0-7 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 (34:45) also must have gone down very well with Kerry supporters at the time! John Coleman #6, and Connie Hartnett #7.
Injuries to Darragh Cashman and Kevin Crowley has prevented them from playing in the Munster Minor and Senior Football Finals against Kerry this evening. But the best to Luke Murphy who is #18 for the Cork Minors and is sure to be well ready if called on.
The best of luck to Shane Hickey this evening, playing for Cork in the U20 Development League John Kerins Cup Round 4 against Kildare where he starts at corner-back. Throw-in is at 7:30 in Castlecomer GAA. Updates can be found here.
