Huge congratulations to Lucy Wallace and the Cork Minor Panel and management team, the All Ireland champions have now been crowned Munster Champions last Sunday 17th November after taking on Tipperary in Cappamore In Limerick. Final score was Cork 1-15 to Tipperary 1-11!

We are so proud of our U13 girls in Ahavine, Ballymacoda on Sunday last against a strong Sars side in the Cup final! Unfortunately things didn’t go our way but a huge achievement in getting so far in the competition! The girls were credited with a fantastic team effort and giving it their all until the final whistle! Well done girls and to your management team !

Lots of fun and games at our U6 training session on Friday night and again our future Camogie stars came along in big numbers!! We even got a rendition of ‘Up the Magpies’ and finished off the evening with a match where lots of goals got past our goalies Vivienne Gleeson and Chloe Garde!! Well done girls and to all your coaches !

Our U11 girls had an end of season event to celebrate the fantastic year that they had culminating in winning the County Title. The first of many trophies for this brilliant bunch of girls who are a pleasure to work with. Next up is the Christmas social night where the girls will be presented with their winners medals.

On Sunday the 15th December Midleton Camogie club would like to invite all our players and their families to our annual Christmas social from 5.30 to 8 pm. Last year we had two separate nights, one for the social and one for the medals presentation however this year based on feedback from members we are going to have one celebration. On this night our younger members will have a chance to celebrate with our older girls who have achieved great things on the pitch this year and are fantastic role models to the younger girls. There will be fun , games and celebrations along with some light refreshments. This event will close off 2019 for Midleton camogie club after which we will take a well earned break before coming back refreshed and energised in the new year.
