Mid Kerry under 21 Semi Final:

Congratulations to our Under 21 team who defeated Glenbeigh Glencar Cromane in the semi- final on Saturday morning last. They will play Beaufort in the final.


We had our first match 3 winner on Friday night last. Congratulations to Patie Sugrue- Lissivane East. Enjoy your winnings Patie.

Drawn numbers were 3, 12, and 15 with 24 being the bonus number.

Our next Lotto draw is on Friday February 10th in O’ Shea’s Bar, Milltown.

Lotto Jackpot is now €13,400. A match 3 will give you a win or share in €300.

There are also 6 wonderful consolation prizes. Head out now and buy your lucky lotto ticket.

The money raised from our lotto fundraiser has recently been used to purchase new training materials and footballs for all our under age teams -who are now well established in their indoor training.

Thank you to each and every person who continues to support our Lotto.

Club registration is now due.

Under 6’s are free.

Juvenile/student and OAP are €30.

An adult is €50, couples are €80 and family membership is €100.

As you will agree, these are fantastic rates- for the juvenile/student/OAP – it works out at 58 cent per week, while a family membership (up to 2 adults and 4 children) works out at just under €2 per week.

And don’t forget that membership entitles you to free entry to all our home Co. League games – worth €30(on production of your membership card) as well as entry to the Munster Final ticket draw and that all important All Ireland ticket draw in September!

Membership also entitles all those aged 18 and over to vote at the AGM.

Certainly great value for money!

All officers, players and mentors need to be registered for insurance purposes with Croke Park. Our registrar John Murphy will be delighted to facilitate anybody who wishes to join our club.

Email addresses:

We are in the process of updating our contact details, which includes e mail addresses. If you have new contact details, you can private message me (Deirdre O’ Sullivan) on my Facebook Page with new details. Some emails are coming back with an un-delivered status.

Please note that under age players are NOT permitted inside the dressing rooms prior to or after a SENIOR game or inside the surrounding fence wire when a senior game is ongoing.

This is to protect all parties involved. We ask parents and guardians to continually remind their children of this rule which will be strictly enforced. We appreciate your on- going support and cooperation.

Appropriate Football Gear:

Can all underage team managers, trainers/coaches please ensure that all players representing Milltown /Castlemaine are dressed in club colours (Green and White socks and togs.)   This is to avoid any inconvenience prior to games.

We would also ask parents/guardians of players to inform their children of this County Board Rule.
