COVID-19 Update

Cork GAA - Advice to Clubs and Counties – for activities post December 1st

https://gaacork.ie/2020/12/01/advice-to-clubs-and-counties-for-activities-post-december-1st/

The last week has seen the country eased restrictions. Along with positive news on the COVID-19 vaccines there are grounds for optimism. In being optimistic however, we should all be very conscious that the virus has not ‘gone away’, is still very much in the community and that we have to continue to do the right thing for you, your club and your community. 

Community guidelines that have been set out in terms of social distancing, hand and coughing etiquette are important both within and outside the GAA environment.

Where training is taking place, completion of the GAA Health Questionnaire prior to each training session https://returntoplay.gaa.ie\

Please also note that the club grounds are closed to activities other than those planned and supervised under the Safe Return to Gaelic Games protocols.

Cork Minor & U20 Play Resumes

The GAA has got the green light to restart its provincial minor and U-20 competitions as the country moves to Level Three of the Living With Covid plan. When the country moved to Level Five in October, underage inter-county games were prohibited with only senior inter-county games proceeding as they were considered in the elite bracket.

The Electric Ireland Minor Hurling Championship & Bord Gáis Energy Munster GAA Hurling Under 20 Championship will resume next Saturday Dec 12th. Both competitions are at semi-final stage with Cork playing Limerick in Thurles in the Minor match at 1pm and also playing Limercik in the U20 match in LIT Gaelic Grounds, Limerick at 4.30pm. Midleton have three players on the minor panel; Alex Quirke (vice-captain), Bríon Saunderson and Ciarmhac Smyth and two players on the U20 panel; Tommy O’Connell and Sam Quirke. Best of luck to you all.

Midleton GAA AGM

This year we will hold an 'AGM Day' as opposed to our normal  AGM. 

Therefore we will NOT meet in our Clubhouse and it will NOT take place online.

Juvenile

Fé12 Notes

The final GAA training of 2020 took place recently on the main pitch with a great turnout on the day from players and coaches alike. We will take a well-earned break for a couple of months and return in early 2021. We are very lucky with the lads in this age group. They have shown excellent commitment, discipline, and willingness to listen and learn as well as having fun along the way in this very strange year. We would sincerely wish to thank the parents for time and effort in supporting their sons in playing football and hurling with Midleton. It takes a lot of time and effort to bring the lads to training and matches at home and around the county. Thanks also to all the coaches who gave us serious time and commitment during the year. A special mention to 9 of our younger lads, those born in 2009, who will play with the Fé12 group again next year – best wishes lads and we will no doubt see you again in the coming years with us. Also, a sincere word of thanks to some of our coaches, who will continue with coaching duties at Fé12 in 2021, namely Andy McCormack, Mike Kelly, Pat Walsh, Declan Connolly who have been with us since Fé6.

 

Finally, we wish one of our valued squad members Kascper Kozlowsia and his family our best wishes in his fight with his ongoing serious illness. Kacper recently underwent major surgery in Dublin and will continue his fight over the coming months – we are thinking of you Kacper. Thanks also to all the club members who very generously supported fund raising for Kacper & his family during the year.
