Camogie 

On Sunday last 15th December we held our Camogie Christmas Social at Midleton GAA in the main hall. Every group was represented on the night from our U6 girls to our Minor Team. It was fantastic  to see such a great turn out by all who came along to celebrate the fantastic year of Camogie our girls have had. We even had a visit from, the great man himself, Santa who had plenty of chats with our girls ahead of his visit on Christmas Eve. Now we will take a well-deserved break until the New Year. We would like to take this opportunity to wish our players, members and their families a very Happy Christmas and Prosperous New Year. 

We  would like to thank Pat O’Brien who kindly wrote the poem below for our U14 County. Winners back in November. We are so proud of all our girls achievements throughout the year but Pat went the extra mile for us recently and penned the following:

County Camogie League Champions 2019

By Pat O’Brien

It was a cold winters day, on the second of November

When our  under 14 team won, using plenty of timber

Early pressure soon mounted, as we played in our own patch

Rachel Ryan eased all that, with the first  goal of the match

That was soon followed with a score from a Quirke called Kelly 

Midleton now showing they had fire in their belly

Aoife and Saoirse would then add to their tally 

It soon became obvious this team was going to rally

Lora Dineen's two goals made Blackrock drop their head

We went in at half time a whopping eleven points ahead

 

Lora couldn’t be stopped with another point after the break

But the second goal from Rachel Ryan was the icing on the cake

Jill Connaughton in goal could only be described as a colossus

She is one of the many reasons this team had no losses

Although I mentioned a few individuals and biased I may seem

This is not about any one person but totally about the team

Ladies Football

After a tremendous year for our Club we are all now enjoying a well-earned break. The Committee would like to wish all our Players, Coaches and their Families a very Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year. We look forward to seeing you all in 2020.

Christmas Food Appeal

This year’s Food appeal for St Vincent de Paul was a huge success. Many thanks to all who donated to the Juvenile ,Ladies Football and Camogie Club Socials. On Thursday evening all Clubs were represented when we handed over the huge array of donations to members of the Midleton branch of St Vincent de Paul. 

Club Shop

The shop will reopen on February 1st. Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year to all from Mary, Sheila and Coleman.

Condolences

Billy Grandon

The sad passing of Billy Grandon last weekend severed a link with Midleton stretching back nearly 90 years. Billy was a great supporter of all things Midleton especially the GAA club and was a regular attendee at Midleton games wherever they were played. Although he lived in the city most of his working life he was a regular visitor to his native town and he liked nothing better than walking the main street and renewing acquaintances with old friends. He would have been proud as punch when his coffin carried the black and white flag on his final journey through Blackpool last Tuesday on the way to his burial in Kilcully cemetery. To Dermot, his son, and the O’Brien and Horgan families of St Mary’s terrace we offer our sincere condolences. Ar dheis Dé go raibh ainm dilís.
