St Patrick's Day Festival - Lá le Pádraig Féile

As part of the ongoing Fundraising effort for the New Facilities at Park South, Midleton GAA are organising a St. Patrick’s Day Family Festival at the GAA Club. The festivities will start at noon and Carousel, Face Painting, Tug o' War, live music, ‘Great Crane Ball Drop’ plus loads more. This promises to be a great day.

The Crane Ball Drop is an important fundraiser for the new development. With the imminent seeding of 2 pitches and ground works due to commence on the ‘top pitch’ we need to maintain momentum to put the facilities in place for the current and future generations. With attractive prizes of 1st-€3,000, 2nd-€2,000, 3rd-€1,000 and a modest ticket price of €10 we would expect the fundraiser to be well supported.

Club members will be contacted to help and support the efforts but tickets are also available from members of the fundraising committee that include Michael Carroll 086 8362218 (Juvenile), Mairead Beausang 087 2412010 (Ladies Football), Ingrid O’Riordan 087 6374748 (Camogie), Tracy Saunderson 087 6625544 (GAA), Michael O’Connell 087 260 6093 (Chairperson Fundraising Committee). 

Many thanks for your ongoing help in our fundraising efforts. 

The St Patrick's Day Festival will be jam-packed with family fun (see above) but the the Tug of War and Great Crane Ball Drop have caught the imagination.

East Cork Division 4 Football League

Midleton 1:00 vs Glenville 1:12

On Sunday morning we travelled to Glenville to play the locals in the firsts round of the league. From the start it was evident that Glenville have been playing football over the last few weeks at Fé21 level and this would stand to them as the game progressed. We played into what could only be described as a gale force wind in the first half. Despite this we played with great discipline and showed a brilliant attitude throughout the team. On the change-over we tried our hardest but unfortunately the elements were not as severe as in the first half and we found scores hard to come by. A special mention to Luke Deane and Ryan Cahill who played their first games of adult football for the club. Also welcome to Jan, we are delighted to have you as part of the team. Our next game is fixed for Monday 16th of March vs Carrigtwohill in Carrigtwohill at 7.45pm. Today's game will stand to us where we will look to improve our scoring rate. Also thanks to PJ Dennehy who refereed the game fairly in what were tough weather conditions.

Team: Padraig Dunlea, Brendan Ferriter, Eoin Ferriter, Rory Donegan, Coran Swayne, Barry Fitzgerald, Mark O'Keeffe, Fergus Wade, Andy Rea, Ryan Cahill, Micheal Keohane, Luke Deane, Leonard Saunderson, Sean Corcoran and Coleman Quinn. Substitutes Jan Haandrikman, Declan McInerney and Jerome Curtin.  

Camogie

Great news for Midleton Camogie Club this week on both a County and a divisional Level. We would like to congratulate two of our U14 players, Laura Goulding and Saoirse Ní Teanga, having being selected for the Cork U14 development squad for 2020. Well done girls this is a fantastic opportunity for you both! We would also like to wish our three players Ruthi Hennessy, Jill Connaghton and Aoife Fitzgerald all the best, after weeks of trials, we got news this week that the girls have made the Imokilly U15 Camogie Panel for 2020. We are so proud of all our girls but especially these five girls who give 100% commitment in each training session all your hard work has paid off ladies. 

We have All Ireland Champions in our club this week as  St Marys high school Midleton defeated Loretta Dublin during the week in Co. Laois. Well done to our Midleton players Megan Kelly, Rayanna Power, Lucy Wallace, Jodie Keegan O Connell and Caoimhe Cronin. Fantastic achievement, well done to you all!

U14 League Midleton v Watergrasshill

Our U14 girls travelled to Watergrasshill for their third League game. In trying conditions of wind, rain, sunshine and hailstone the girls got stuck in early and controlled the game from the start. Some beautiful passes of play saw us dominate the first half. We recommenced the second half with the same determination but Watergrasshill fought back. Our girls never gave up and held out for the win. Well done to all the girls and to the Parents for travelling. Thank you to Watergrasshill for a very competitive game.

Juvenile

Fé14

Our football campaign began Friday night in Killeagh/ Itas last year’s premier two champions.   This was always going to be a tough opener and that proved to be the case.  Killeagh/Itas had us on the back foot rattling off 3 early points from play before Sean McSharry had an excellent point for us, we then conceded a goal but after some great link up play Callum O Brien rattled the net. Killeagh added 1.02 to leave the half time score Killeagh/Ita’s 2.05 Midleton 1.01.   The second half saw us spurn some early scoring chances we paid a heavy price as our opponents score 3.02 without reply.  Credit to our lads they never stopped trying against a very strong Killeagh/ Ita’s outfit. Cathraigh Cronin, Fionn Kelly, Darragh Egan were the pick of the defenders while Thomas Dunlea,  Eoghan Frazer and Conor Morley tried their hearts out around the middle third. Sean McSharry certainly played a captains part and had a fine game in the Midleton forward line. He carried the fight to our opponents throughout. Odhran Denigan pointed a free for us as we continued to battle we were awarded a penalty which Sean dispatched with aplomb, another fine point from Callum O Brien who was also a threat throughout this game was followed by a  free from Sean to leave the final score line Killeagh Ita’s 5.07 Midleton 2.04. 

Fé13

On Sunday morning last our Fé13’s travelled to Youghal for the first round of the Football league. This year we only have one team as there is no Eastern league to play in. In order to try and get everyone game time we are trying to pick different players for each game. This weakens our team unfortunately as the other teams in the league have strong first teams. Nevertheless the lads put in a great effort this morning but came out on the wrong side of a 1-07 to 1-05 defeat. There was good performances from 2019 most improved footballer Eoin Hurley ably assisted by Nicky Coughlan, Lochlann Stewart, Jake Kirby and Noah Cahill to name but a few. Playing against a strong breeze and hill we were 06pts -  3pts down at halftime. Despite dominating the second half we conceded a goal totally against the run of play. This score proved to be the winning score. Despite us have chance after chance we could not get the final breakthrough. Well done lads on a great first outing effort.

Worthy of special mention is Ryan Fitzsimmons who played his first game for Midleton having recently transferred to the club. Ryan captained the team today.

Fé8

The Fé8 lads travelled to Church Road on Saturday to play Blackrock in a friendly game of Hurling. We took 22 young Magpies with us to the City to play four 7-a-side Matches. Our lads were excellent on the day and there were some great scores from our lads throughout each of the games.

Overall we are very pleased with the effort and determination this group of lads are showing and we encourage the lads to keep practicing at home. We would like to thank Blackrock Juvenile Club for their Hospitality and Organisation on Saturday and we would also like to thank the Parents for making the trip up to the City.

 

*Going forward please ensure all boys bring their own water bottles to training and matches*
