Commiserations to Shane Hickey (Millstreet) and Evan Murphy (Dromtarriffe) who played with the Cork Minors who lost the Munster Minor semi-final last night to Kerry, but it’s great vindication for the local clubs to see more of our lads making the grade and playing in the Cork geansaí. Evan goaled after ten seconds, and added another two points during the game, while Shane came on after half time, but Kerry weren’t for stopping at that stage.  [read more …] “Shane and Evan played with the Cork Minors last night”

1990 Duhallow Senior Football Team
County Champions
Captained by Danny Cullotty.
November 4th 1990 was a red letter day for gaelic games here in Duhallow as our divisional senior footballers annexed the cork county senior championship title, and thus bridging a gap of 54,years with a two point victory in a dour struggle over st Finbarr at Pairc Uí Chaoimh.
The 1988 finalists opened their successful campaign with a comprehensive victory 2-18/2-6 over Carrigdhoun, followed up with a 2-11/1-5, triumph over O’Donovan Rossa.
Mighty Nemo Rangers threw down the gauntlet to the barony in the semi final, but Duhallow qualified for the decider with a 4-5/1-9 triumph, goals coming from Anthony Barry, Jimmy Dennehy, Timmy Healy& Richard Dennehy.
The decider against St.Finbarr on a cool November afternoon 30 years ago brought a attendance of 10,979 to Cork GAA headquarters.
And it proved a pretty close affair St Finbarr sailing into a three point lead inside ten minutes but it took a super save from goalie and man of the match Jerry Pat O’Leary midway through the opening half to thwart the city boys. Duhallow had the edge at midfield in the first half through its captain Danny Cullotty and Jerome Walsh, they led 0-4/0-3 at the interval.
Paddy Hayes came well into the game in the second half at midfield for St Finbarr but Duhallow never floundered and with Jerry Pat pulling off a tremendous save, one sensed then was Duhallow day of destiny and when referee Joe O’Leary blew the final whistle scenes of joy and emotion greeted the new county champions on a 0-8/0-6 triumph.
What a moment it was as victorious captain Danny Cullotty held aloft the Andy Scannell trophy.
This most coveted championship was now wresting in Duhallow.
A huge crowd turned out to greet the team in Newmarket on its arrival home after the game and the celebrations continued through out the week with big receptions in Kiskeam, Kanturk, Millstreet & Knocknagree.
This historic victory also saw Danny Culloty become cork s new captain the first Duhallow player to achieve this since Millstreet’s John O’Keeffe in 1949.
And John is still hale and hearty and now resides at Teach Altra nursing home in Newmarket.

Question: D. Cummins from Millstreet was listed as a sub for the Cork Senior Football team in 1948 (v Sligo Sligo Champion – 6 June 1948). Was he not playing in the county final?

The Cup comes to Millstreet

Nineteen forty eight was the date of the year
Our young football team on the field did appear
They won from Dunmanway right down to Fermoy
And the city of Cork they went out to defy
On the banks of the Lee on an October day
For the County Cup we went for to play

Ten to one were the odds on that great City team
Our men were too soft and our boys were too green
With Den Connors midfield and the brave O’Keeffe brothers
Those brave city lads would soon sigh for their mothers
Still they put down the cash to humble our pride
And send us home beaten to the Blackwater side

Our team lost the wind to the toss of a coin
So St. Vincent’s they planned for to lick us in time
Then Munty tried hard for to stop the attack
But the first point they scored put our nerves on the rack
The play was resumed at the kick-out of the ball
When Kelleher Pound Hill got a very bad fall

John Joe Tangney, Dick Barrett, Byrne and Weir
Shouts ‘toughen the game while the wind is from there’
Then on to the field the sub Dennehy came
Sub or no sub he played a fine game
We went on defending till the half-whistle blew
Then of points we were nil, but St. Vincent’s had two

The restart of the play, oh what terrific speed
Jim Manley he proved a true friend indeed
Young Kelleher thought of sweet Minor Row
And he scores a fine goal with the tip of his toe
Then Cork’s ardent backers fell into despair
While Millstreet’s supporters flung their hats in the air

St. Vincent’s they rushed on their major attack
But Dineen and O’Driscoll knew how to hit back
Still they sent in the ball to the mouth of the goal
Denis Manning with honours put his name on the ball
With excitement the sidelines by now had gone mad
They were betting their shirts and what money they had

Five minutes to go with our team in the lead
Our opponents displayed all their old keen breed
They rushed and they fought in the air and the ground
‘Twas then Jerry Connor showed himself sound
When at last came the whistle with a cheer for full time
Old Millstreet were champions till 1949

Then home by Macroom over many a mile
All gay and light-hearted we wore a bright smile
The bonfires were blazing in our dear native town
And even old Claragh looked lovingly down
By our priests and our people the welcome was great
We have brought home the Cup for 1948

Jerry Doody
