Midleton Hurling & Football, Ladies Football & Camogie Club NEWS

11 February, 2018

Post Primary School Hurling
All roads lead to Mallow next Saturday when the Midleton CBS senior hurlers take on Limerick’s Ard Scoil Rís in the Munster Colleges Dr Harty Cup final @ 1.30pm.
Following on from their great win over last years champions Templemore in the semi final CBS will be hoping to emulate the historic first success of 1988, 1995 and the last victory for any Cork school in 2006.
The Club wishes manager Aylwin Kearney and our club players on the panel the very best of luck against a team which interestingly will feature Jerome Boylan of Na Piarsaigh whose father Dave was a great Midleton player back in the 80’s as were his uncles John and Mick.
