Clonmult Memorial Park 50th Anniversary

08 April, 2012

Next Saturday the 14th April will signal an auspicious day in the history of Midleton GAA club with the opening of two new dressing rooms, a modern fully equipped gymnasium and a spacious meeting room. This much needed facility was spear headed by the club’s development committee under the leadership of Ian O Brien. The club will also use the occasion to mark the official re-opening of the club’s grounds on the 8th April 1962. On that occasion Cork played Limerick in a senior hurling challenge with luminaries such as Christy Ring, Midleton’s own Paddy Fitzgerald, Jimmy Brohan, Sean Kenefick John Bennett, Mick Cashman, Michael O Brien and Liam O Driscoll from Cloyne all togging out. The surviving members of that Cork team have been invited to the ceremony next Saturday and old memories of the occasion 50 years ago will no doubt be revived. The official opening at 2pm will be performed by Sean Hennessy, former Midleton player and club officer who also gave many years service to the East Cork Board of which he is now the President. The Cork and Waterford under 21 hurlers will play a challenge game at 4pm as part of their preparations for the forthcoming Munster under 21 hurling championship. With so many of these young players figuring on the Cork senior team at the moment a most enjoyable and worthwhile game should ensue for both teams. Midleton’s Conor Lehane who has made such an impression on the hurling scene this year and who will captain the Cork under 21’s this year should make an appearance in this game.
