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.)

Our second very rare sight at Millstreet Town Park on Sat. 7th July 2018 is demonstrated here by Evan and Liam. Because of the extreme dry weather conditions the original driveway to the former Coomlogane House of the McCarthy-O’Leary Family is presently visible within the Pitch & Putt Course….near Green No. 2.

Magnificent Rainbow Over Millstreet Town Park This Evening

We were fortunate to record a truly magnificent Rainbow over Millstreet Town Park at 5.30 this evening (Sunday, 15th April 2018).  It looked like the end of the rainbow … with its pot of gold … appeared to be over the Pitch-and-Putt Course!  Even the walkers in the Park at the time never felt closer to a rainbow.   But when you come to think about it – the recent wonderfully upgraded Pitch-and-Putt Course must be gold to its many Loyal Players.  Here we share four images of this evening’s “rainbow magic”.  Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)

Happy Childhood Memories

Happy childhood memories the best memories of all
And my younger years in Millstreet I will always recall
On evenings in Summer up to the mid Fall
In the Townpark at the West End we played gaelic football
My friends of my youth where might they be today
Like me have the years left them balder and gray
Though some of them in the home Parish did stay
In life one might say we just went our own way
Since those days so many years have come and gone
And time does not wait it just ticks on and on
Many of the friends of my youth I may not see again
Though good memories of them with me does remain
And in fancy I chase the football up and down
With my happy young friends in the Park of the Town.
