Duhallows Fittest GAA Club

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”

An Interview with Con Hartnett

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”

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 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.
