Unfortunately our Hurling Blitz in Pairc ui Chaoimh on Sunday was cancelled due to the poor weather. We will be back Doing Hurling Training on Saturday Morning from 10-11am.This will be our last Training Session for a while as we are Breaking up for the month of July.

In the past week we have travelled to the Pairc for a Rebel Og football blitz and yesterday we made the short trip to Killeagh for another Rebel Og organised hurling blitz. Opposition for the football included Crosshaven, Fermoy, Inniscara and Bishopstown, while the hurling games were contested against Cobh, Youghal, Aghada and Carrigtwohill. During both blitz’s our lads gave their all and thoroughly enjoyed both days. We are back up to the 4G pitch in Pairc Uí Chaoimh this coming Saturday for another hurling blitz and training continues in the cricket field on Thursdays at 7pm.

It has been a busy week for the Fé 9 panel. Last week we hosted Kinsale and Lisgoold for a mornings hurling. It was great to play some games after a few weeks of no action on the playing field. This was followed by a hurling blitz yesterday as we hosted Carrigtwohill. All the games were keenly contested and we were very pleased with the performance of all our players. Our lads are really adapting well to the move away from ground hurling and some great touches and striking were on show. For the week ahead we will have hurling training at 7pm on Thursday in the Cricket Club and we are away to Éire Og next Saturday for a hurling fixture, time TBC. The Fé 9 management would like to thank the parents of our players for their support at our games.

On Saturday morning we travelled to The Pike in Glanmire for a football blitz versus our hosts Glanmire and Nemo Rangers. On the day we had a panel of 33 boys, fielding three teams. We were slow off the mark in our opening games and struggled somewhat against some strong footballing opposition that seemed to get out of the blocks a lot quicker. However despite the slow start our boys raised their work rate significantly in the second games and gave the opposition a much stiffer test. Our boys showed that they are well up there with the best in terms of footballing skills and ability, displaying some fine teamwork & passing with the scores to back this up. Well done to all the lads on the day on their efforts and performance, this was somewhat of a step up in terms of the strength of the opposition for us and we were by no means found wanting.

We return to the small ball with hurling training on Thursday evening in the Tech Field at 7pm and again hurling training on Saturday morning at 11am in the club. We have one hurling game remaining as part of the Go Games series, this takes place on Friday 12th July at 7:45pm in Midleton.

Outside of the Youghal fixture we will giving the Fé 10 players and coaches a well deserved break for the month of July. We will return to training on Thursday 1st August at 7pm in the tech field with our first game of the second series of Go Games provisionally fixed for 17th August.

On Monday evening last. Our footballers made their way to Carrig na bhfear for the next round of the Eastern Football league. On a bright sunny evening perfect conditions for football. The lads started really well with strong performances from Tomas Geary, Noah Cahill, Cian Stack and Captain Ben Troy. The lads worked the ball really well in the early stages which lead to some great scores from Daniel Donovan, Cian Stack and a goal from Diarmud Lester. This put us into a commanding lead of 1-04 to no score after 15mins. Despite Carrig na bhfear becoming more competitive and physical. We coped well and finished the half with a goal that was scrambled over the line and a fine Donovan point. At halftime we lead 2-05 to a point. On the resumption Carrig na bhfear stormed into the game scoring 2-02 in quick succession. The lads never panicked. Strong play lead to another Lester goal, this was followed by a point also from Diarmud who had a fine game. Another Carrig goal them them in touch. We rallied again with a fantastic individual goal from David Kelly, reminisced of a famous Offaly goal of yester year !!!!! Joey Moran ,Tiago Fleming, Miah Mc Grath and goalkeeper Oisin Connolly finished the game well which in tern meant we came a away with a good away win. The football at times was a joy to watch and should give the boys great confidence going forward. A big thanks also from the parents who always give the lads great support. Well done lads.
Midleton 4-07 to Carrig na bhfear 3-05

After a good win v Ballincollig in the hurling league on Wednesday evening, our attention turned to Saturday in preparation for the inaugural Bill O Keeffe Memorial hurling tournament.

Bill O’Keeffe Memorial Hurling Tournament

Clonmult Memorial Park was looking its magnificent best as we welcomed Lismore, Inniscarra 1 and 2, Killeagh/Itas . Magpies v Inniscarra was the first match, having come out on top in a recent league encounter, the pressure was on us to perform. We took an early lead playing into a very strong breeze this proved vital as the wind increased for the second half. The halftime score Midleton 0-7 (Daniel Garde 0-2, Darragh Egan, Eoghan Frasier, Peter Barrett, Paddy Walsh 0-1 each, Inniscarra 0-3. An early Eoghan goal settled us, Scarra came back strongly scoring 1-01 but our lads kept them at bay in what was a very lively second half. Points from James, Thomas and Darragh saw us finish on a score Midleton 1-10 Inniscarra 1-04. Carthaigh Cronin, Paddy Walsh, Callum Mc Sweeney, Adam O Connor, Josh Carey and Luca Brodkorb all had fine displays in this match, which saw us go straight into the Cup Final.

Lismore v Killeagh/Itas were next up this proved to be a disappointing outing for Lismore who were short a few players as Killeagh ran out comprehensive winners. Ben and Barry Walsh and Sean Meade were impressive for the victors, while John Hegarty and Oisin Aldred did well for the west Waterford lads.

TROPHY FINAL;

Magpies 2 V Inniscarra 2 were next up, we were expecting a huge challenge for the first piece of silverware of the day. Led by our popular Captain, Jack O’ Connell we went on the offensive from the whistle and took the game to our opponents. Matthew Gregory struck over a super point from play, we had the advantage of the stiff breeze and we needed to make it count. Gearoid Cashman Yohanis Mehigan and Shane McNamara were rock solid in the full backline repelling wave after wave of Scarra attacks. Conor Morley and John Paul Mc Manus were imperious throughout. Callum O’Brien was tormenting our opponents defence and after great work from Jack Foley and Jack White it was the other Callum, Callum Deegan who found the back of the net. Jack Foley added a point from a free to leave the halftime score Magpies 1-02 Scarra no score. The second half was a fantastic 20 minutes of hurling another green flag from Callum should have settled us but the men in blue and white were not lying down, with the wind at their backs they poured forward a pointed free was soon followed by a goal, Fionn Kelly was steadying things for us at midfield while Sean McSharry and Senan Gleeson were also putting in massive performances. The game ended on a scoreline of Midleton 2-02 Inniscarra 1-01. Great scenes afterwards as our lads celebrated winning the first trophy on offer. A fantastic display from both teams, well done lads.

SHIELD FINAL;

Lismore V Inniscarra, it was obvious that both teams were going hell for leather to get their hands on the next trophy up for grabs. Scarra were on the front foot from the off and established an early lead which they never relinquished. Lismore will be disappointed with their lot but to be fair they kept hurling and didn’t resort to any unsavoury tricks, I’m sure they will regroup for the upcoming Fe 13 Waterford championship. Credit too to Inniscarra they recovered from the disappointment of the

semi final defeat showing their undoubted prowess to win on a scoreline Lismore 1-01 Inniscarra 4-10.

BILL O’ KEEFFE PERPETUAL CUP FINAL;

Magpies v Killeagh/Itas. Two East Cork teams took to the field for an eagerly awaited clash of neighbours. From the throw in James Mc Sweeney picked up the sliotar soloed forward and struck over a fine point from play, Peter Barrett then fired over another point after a great pick up, Killeagh struck for a point. Eoghan Frasier then found the back of the net for a great individual score, Killeagh responded in kind as full forward Sean Meade showed pace and power to rattle the net. Peter pointed for us again his pace and skill was causing plenty of problems. Killeagh goaled again and even at this stage it was clear to the large crowd in attendance this match would be a shootout. Peter shook off his marker to goal again for us, another Killeagh green flag followed. Our half back line of Conor Williams (captain), Carthaigh Cronin and Callum Mc Sweeney were playing well . Ben Walsh’s ability to break forward from centre back was a huge factor for Killeagh, from one of these he set up another goal before Peter pointed again, a Killeagh point left a halftime score; Magpies 2-04 Killeagh/Itas 4-02. Having had the advantage of the breeze we were very disappointed to find ourselves four points down. A quick halftime chat and a few positional changes and we were ready to go again. The second half was another cracker with both teams committed to the cause. It was match (as one parent commented) you would pay to watch. The lead changed constantly, Killeaghs ability to get goals and ours to respond with points saw the match end in a welter of excitement. Fionn Kelly’s introduction saw him score a crucial point, Thomas and James were playing their hearts out at midfield, Eoghan and Darragh Egan were fighting tooth and nail for the team, Adam O Connor, Ben Fitz and Josh Carey were defending like their lives depended on it, Paddy Walsh, Luca Brodkorb and Conor Morley had played themselves to a standstill. Daniel Garde and Peter had goaled for us as the clock went into red we lead by a point, Killeagh launched another attack that man again Sean Meade bore down on goal he unleashed a bullet like shot which was heading for the corner of the net but somehow our Goalie Odhran Rabbitte dived full length and managed to somehow steer the ball out for a 65, an incredible save! Ben Walsh came up to take the 65 a point would take the game into extra time, his shot went agonisingly wide, Odhran took the puck out and the final whistle sounded Midleton claimed the Inaugural Bill O Keeffe Perpetual Cup amid scenes of joy on the pitch and on the sideline. Both teams deserve great credit for what was a fantastic display of top class hurling.

This type of an event would not be possible but for the help of many, we would like to thank the all who helped out in any way. In particular we would like to thank Pa Beausang who put in a long stint and as always a very professional display of sensible refereeing. Thanks to pitch Co-ordinator Mike Barrett, Andrew Foley for again double jobbing as photographer and mentor, the score board operator, the umpires, the parents for the much needed and much appreciated food and to all the supporters for their very vocal appreciation of the boys efforts.

Huge congratulations to each and every Midleton player who gave all involved a day to remember, a great day of hurling. A great day for Midleton GAA and a fitting tribute to club man the late Bill O’Keeffe. Mary, Liam, Coleman and Darragh O’Keeffe where present to present the silverware on what was an emotional day for the O’ Keeffe family.

 A day to remember for these young magpies.
