Puc Fada 2020

In line with GAA guidance, this year’s Puc Fada will NOT go ahead.

Whilst understandable this is disappointing given it is a great post-Christmas social occasion and is played in memory of a great clubman, Sean Keohane. As the proceeds from this event are normally donated to the Irish Heart Foundation, we would ask members, where possible, to consider donating in lieu of the entry fee.

Juvenile

Juvenile Annual Review

The virtual Juvenile end-of-year review took place this week with a large number of members logging in via Microsoft Teams. Thanks to each team manager who gave a summary of the year for their group. We also heard from Tracy Saunderson (Club Registrar/ acting Juvenile PRO), Martin McSweeney (Coaching Officer), Michael Carroll (Secretary), Mary Quinn (Juvenile treasurer) and Paudie O’Brien (Juvenile Chairman). Thanks also to Adult Secretary Vin Reddy who praised the work being done by all at Juvenile level, especially in what was a very difficult year. Special mention to the Fé16 players and management for their success this year in winning the P1 Hurling championship. There were some discussions regarding the imminent changes to the Rebel Óg competition in 2021 and how this may affect the different teams.

There were also some good news regarding the possible opening of the new training pitches at Park South in 2021, along with possible further development of new playing facilities. Special thanks went to all the coaches who generously give substantial amounts of time in the training and preparation of all the teams.

Thanks to those involved in the Covid/ Return to play committee and to the coaches/ parents that acted as Covid supervisors for facilitating the safe return to play for everyone. Thanks to all the parents who continue to support the club in many ways.

The following will seek appoinment from the new Executive to continue for 2021; Paudie O’Brien (Chairman) /Michael Carroll (Secretary)/ Mary Quinn (Treasurer), with the subsequent changes in 2022; Dave Cody (Secretary) and Michael Carroll (Chairman), again subject to appointment by the Executive.

It was noted that there was a fantastic response to this year’s Midleton Juvenile Christmas raffle considering the current circumstances. Sincere thanks to everyone who bought tickets and to the sponsors who donated the great prizes.

Finally, we remembered those who sadly passed away in 2020 and also those who may be unwell at this time. Nollaig Shona agus gach dea ghuí don bhliain seo chugainn.    

Fé7 Notes

The final Fé7 GAA training session of 2020 took place recently on the Astro pitch at Gaelscoil Mhainistir na Corann with a great turnout from players and coaches alike. We will take a well-earned break now for the Christmas period and return early January 2021. The boys have shown great enthusiasm throughout the year in sometimes strange circumstances with the Covid restrictions. Thanks to all the parents who continue to support the lads progressing through the club and developing their hurling and football skills. Thanks also to all the coaches who give up a lot of their free time to help out across the year in all weather conditions! We are all really looking forward to 2021where there will hopefully be more fun and games on the field of play for these aspiring young magpies. Nollaig Shona agus Magpies abú.
