Midleton Minor Hurlers Receive Award

Midleton Minor Hurlers were awarded the Cork City and County Youth sports Awards for December at a lunch held  in the Metropole Hotel on the 9th of January.

Midleton Minor Hurlers had a very successful and rewarding 2019, reaching four of the available finals and winning three, defeating Blackrock in the non exam final and in the C3 final. The two matches against the Rockies were very hard fought affairs, the non exam final was played in Church Road, it took a late goal to settle this one, after a hard battle between two well matched sides. The C 3 Final was held in Clonmult Park in Midleton, once again there was very little between the teams and a late scoring flurry saw Midleton over the line. 

The first round of the P1 Championship was against old rivals Sarsfields in Cobh back in April, six points down at halftime the lads put in a tremendous second half performance resulting in a twelve point turnaround, a six point victory gave the players huge confidence. With the Leaving Cert completed it was Glen Rovers in the next round  in Ballygarvan, the Glen had too much on the night, and came out on top  by a goal. The Magpies were bitterly disappointed with their performance but despite a lengthy injury list offered no excuses.  A month of intense preparation and an August meeting v Blarney was next in Delaneys. This was an impressive display of attacking hurling resulting in a thirteen point victory. The semi-final was fixed for the Mardyke against Ballincollig, this was a tremendous encounter with both teams raising the excitement levels for both sets of supporters in the large attendance. Having led for most of the match Midleton found themselves behind as the clock ticked down but displayed real steel and character to regain the lead and finish with a two point win after extra time, Ballincollig were very gracious in defeat and deserve huge credit for contributing to what was a fantastic game of hurling. The Blue riband event in Cork minor hurling went ahead in Pairc Uí Rinn on the 7th of October Midleton v Glen Rovers.  This was Midleton’s third year in a row to reach the final missing out on the title to Glen Rovers in 2017 and with a win last year against Blarney.  Once again the pre match hype proved to be justified, with both teams going at it from the start. Midleton were a point to the good after a terrific first half.  On the resumption the excitement levels were at fever pitch in a contest that displayed all that is great about Cork hurling, no quarter being asked or given, the crowd certainly getting value for money.  At the end of an epic encounter it was the men from Midleton who prevailed on a scoreline of Midleton 3-15, Glen Rovers 1-18. This achievement is a reflection of the tremendous work being done at underage level in the club. This is a very exciting time for Midleton CLCG with the development of new pitches and facilities at Park South in the town.   These 2019 Midleton minor players are a credit to their families and club, each member of the panel made a huge contribution in what was a satisfying and successful campaign,  ideal role models inspiring young Magpies to follow in their footsteps.

Members of the panel management and families will attend the annual awards gala dinner  to be held in the Metropole on Friday next the 24th of January.  Thanks to sponsors of this award  the Metropole Hotel, John Buckley Sports and Cork BEO.

 

 

   

 

East Cork Junior C football Semi-Final 2019

On Sunday 19 Jan we played our Junior C semi-final against Youghal. Despite missing several players due to illness we fielded a very committed fifteen players. We started the game brilliantly and scored a beautiful goal within 30 seconds. Youghal then settled into their rhythm and took some excellent scores themselves. The second half continued in much the same vein where we found scores hard to come buy despite some brilliant build up play. The full time score line read Midleton 1-05 Youghal 2-15. The score line doesn't reflect the superb effort and never-say-die attitude of this group of players. Despite being shorn of several players today we gave it our all.  This brings an end to our 2019 campaign and it has been a very positive effort from everyone involved. The 2020 league will start in the next few weeks and we can look forward with confidence to these games.

Team: Darragh O'Keeffe, Brendan Ferriter, Eoin Ferriter, Coran Swayne, Robbie Barry, Barry Fitzgerald, Conor Evans, Eoin Mitchell, Ian Kennefick, Andrew Rea, Alan Power, Mark Daly, Leonard Saunderson, Conor O'Farrell, Eoghan Collins. Substitutes used Coleman Quinn, Rory Donegan and Jerome Curtin.

Bingo

Friday night is bingo night.  Starts 8pm sharp and over by 9.45. Everybody welcome.

45 Drive

"Tommy Drick’s takes most of the tricks."

Tommy Driscoll was the man to beat this week winning two finals partnered in the first by local plumber Richard Meaney and in the second by Meelin man Jim O’Sullivan. Indeed Ballincurra was very prominent with Mary Fitzgerald winning with Frank O’Sullivan . Frank of course acquired his 45 skills while playing 110 with Vincent Cocking a former Ballinacurra man. Veterans Joe Hickey and Michael Morrissey took out the first final of the night with consummate ease.

Cards continue this week Friday 24th at 9pm. All welcome.
