Magpies All-Stars

Mike Bolger of Knockgriffin Community Enterprise recently presenting a set of sponsored jersey's to player Jack Macfarlane of the 'Midleton All-Stars'. Jack is accompanied by some of his fellow players and coaches. We are very grateful to Mike and all at Knockgriffin Community Enterprise for the support of our team. 

The Magpies All-Stars was established in 2019. It is dedicated to including players of all abilities in our community and beyond to partake in Gaelic games and activities at the club. We will return for our second season in late spring. New members are always welcome. Contact gaaforallmidleton@gmail.com for further details.

St Patrick’s Day Photograph Series

We have been running a 7 part series of photos (random selection) on social media in the days running up to St Patrick’s Day. In this series, we celebrate Midleton teams from 'down the years'.

1st up, 60 years on, the 1960 Intermediate League winning side. The hawks amongst you spotted some name typos. Apparently, David O'Regan should be David O'Brien (nickname DOTS), Sonny O'Mahony should be Sonny McCarthy and Fussie Flanagan should be Gussie Flanagan.

2nd up in the series...1988 U12A H & F. Lot of guys still involved.

3rd up in the St Patrick's Day Series...1988 U21 Hurling Champions. Some of these guys have hardly aged.

For the 4th in our series of 7 we go back to 1938 and the Midleton team who were Cork County Champions of that year. Some fine hurlers on this team.

5th up, the 1984 Cork County Junior Hurling Champions (reputed to be the toughest competition to win). This team has some familiar faces that are still active in the club. Search out an old team mate and share.....

Parts 6 & 7 in the series will appear on social media on 16th and 17th March. Don’t forget to tune-in.

Bingo in Midleton GAA is suspended until further notice.

45 Drive

45 Drive in Midleton GAA is suspended until further notice

Results from last Friday:

Junior C Hurler Dave O’Brien dominates in two epic finals under closed doors  at the Pavilion on Friday 13th. Carrigshane man Dave O’Brien could not be stopped in winning both finals played last Friday. Dave self isolated himself from the rest of the pack winning the first final with his former “Sciath na Scoil “ coach Jim O’Sullivan. Despite tough opposition from Hannah Beausang not to mention heckling from Thomas O’Driscoll, Dave emerged victorious in the second final with the vastly experienced Donie Kelly.

Results: 1) Dave O’Brien/Jim O’Sullivan, 2) Dave O’Brien/Donie Kelly

Condolences 

The club would like to convey our sympathies to the Hogan family Dwyer’s Road, Midleton on the sad passing of Tom Hogan. Tom played schools and under age hurling with Midleton and was one of the best players on the teams he played on. His brother’s Mike and Frank were also former players with Frank representing the club on the Cork minors in 1966, being defeated by Wexford in the final replay. The Hogan’s connection with the club extended to building the concrete wall around the club’s grounds after the new road in front of the club was constructed. Tom’s nephew Davy was a prominent player in the club and was a selector on the County senior winning team of 2013. Tom was a proud Midleton man and always took a keen interest in the club’s affairs. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
