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.

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.”
It was a very busy weekend on the GAA front this week, with lots of underage teams playing, as well as Kevin and Mark who were playing for Cork in the Munster Senior Championships. Below are lots of the photos:
