Midleton GAA…at the ‘Heart of the Community’. Ní neart go cur le chéile. There is no strength without unity.

COVID Update

We are in final countdown to the 2021 ‘Return to Play’ for non-Adult teams from Monday 26th April with Adult teams returning in May. The return for ‘Juveniles’ will be in a non-contact environment and will obviously be subject to similar protocols and guidelines as pertained last season.

The finishing touches are being put on the training schedules for 26th onwards and these will be communicated once finalised.

The ‘sound bites’ this week certainly suggest that we can expect a full GAA, Ladies Football, Camogie and Magpie All-Stars programme for all players during the year. We might even get a ‘professional’ haircut!!

In the meantime we would like to remind members that, in line with current COVID guidelines, GAA grounds are closed.

Healthy Club Project

Foróige Careers Seminars

Career Coaching Clinics will allow young people to ask mentors questions about professions they may be considering for the future. Many young people have missed out on work experience and will be considering different subjects that will guide their career choices. The aim of the Clinic is to demonstrate that career paths can vary and to allow young people an opportunity to hear different professional experiences from the same field. Real stories in an interactive platform that will inform, encourage and inspire. See attached poster for more information. You can register through Eventbrite @ https://foroigecareers.eventbrite.com

Dementia care unit CUH

Former doctor to the Cork teams, Dr Con Murphy, is organising a fund raising initiative for the Dementia care unit in the CUH. This disease is affecting many people in our community particularly as the age of our population is increasing year on year. John Fenton is doing a walk with Dr Con this coming week to raise funds for this unit and If you would like to contribute to this worthy cause please contact John on 086-6065444.

Juvenile

Junior Infants Boys Pre-Registration

The ongoing Govid-19 government restrictions has meant that the most important boy’s team in the club, the new Fé6 Junior Infants Boys, haven’t been able to commence their GAA training yet. We hope that once the restrictions are lifted, this group will join all their teammates in Midleton GAA Club on the training fields. We also hope that official Club registration will take place when restrictions allow. In the meantime, if any parents of Junior Infant Boys wish to submit their details including name/ number/ email, they can do so to our Juvenile Secretary Michael Carroll at secretarybng.midleton.cork@gaa.ie or to 086-8362218.

Condolences

Midleton GAA would like to offer our condolences to Mark and the wider Hennessy family on the recent passing of Mark’s father Patrick (Pad). Pad is remembered fondly in Midleton GAA, in part, for his regular attendance at his grandson Leo’s matches.

Cumann Luthchleas Gael Mhainistir na Corann would also like to express our sympathies to the family of John (John Joe) Kirby, Glounaphooka, Caheragh Co. Kerry who passed away in the last few days. John Joe was the brother of our former Runai Tim Kirby.

Cumann Luthchleas Gael Mhainistir na Corann would also like to express our sympathies to the O’Farrell/O’Neill families on the sad passing of Nora May O’Neill, Ardmore. Nora May was born and raised over the butcher’s shop on the Main Street before moving to Ardmore following her marriage to Edward.
