Midleton v Glen Rovers  U16 (Deferred County Final ) on Sunday 20th June 2021 at Castle Road, Blackrock.

It had been almost 9 months since the Midleton U16 panel of 2020 had defeated Tracton in the County U16A 2020 semi-final in Clonmult Park

With the resumption of matches allowed from 07th June onwards, the County board fixed the remaining outstanding 2020 finals on the weekend of 19/20 June in Castle Road.

Midleton’s opponents were Glen Rovers and the match was held with up to 100 spectators allowed entrance into Castle Road in an all ticket affair.

The first quarter saw an amount of Glen pressure on the Midleton goal, however the defence held firm and managed to get to the water break in arrears by the minimum 0-2 to 0-1.

The second quarter saw the Glen push out to a 0-5 to 0-1 lead however the Midleton girls rallied towards the end of the quarter to reduce the deficit to 0-5 to 0-2.

Upon the resumption of the third quarter the Glen pressure eventually started to pay off and they raced into a lead of 2-7 to 0-4 at the final water break with some well worked scores.

Despite facing an uphill struggle the Midleton girls showed great spirit and determination and fought to the very end and put over more scores in the final quarter but ultimately came up short against a very skillful and hard working Glen Rovers  team with the final score Glen Rovers 3-7 to Midleton 1-5.

The Midleton girls can be proud of their achievement and have no regrets having left everything on the pitch.

Midleton Panel: Jill Connaughton, Elle McManus, Ruthi Hennessy, Laura Goulding, Muireann Ni Chonchubhair, Yvonne Abernethy, Aoife Fitzgerald, Emily Lamb,  Emma O’Sullivan, Isabelle Nestor, Abbie Foley, Kelly Quirke, Saoirse Ni Theangana , Chloe Garde (C), Mia Tarrant, Rachel Ryan, Lora Dineen, Rebecca Crowley, Jade Fitzgerald, Kate O’Sullivan, Pippa Hennessy.

Midleton v Cobh U16 on Sunday 27th June in Cobh

Midleton travelled to Cobh on Sunday 27th for an evening throw in, in what turned out to be a thriller in beautiful Summer conditions.

Cobh started strongly and opened the scoring with a placed ball free having applied early pressure to the Midleton goal, Midleton managed to find their rhythm and scored 1-1 in quick succession, however Cobh also finished the quarter strongly with another free and a goal to leave the sides all level at first water break 1-2 apiece.

Both sides kept the score board ticking in the second quarter with a combination of well worked goals and points form play and placed balls but Midleton managed to edge the half by 2-4 to 2-3.

The third quarter resumed and turned out to be a high scoring affair with a succession of Cobh scores but Midleton rallied strongly throughout the quarter with a total of 6 points added and when it finished Cobh held a 3 point lead 4-6 to 2-9.

The final quarter was end to end nail biting stuff with Midleton always chasing the game. Having equalised with another well worked goal, Cobh took the lead again to lead by 3 points as the match went into dying moments. Midleton were not finished and were awarded a free on the 20m line, a brilliant struck ball was buried in the Cobh net to draw matters square and when the final whistle was blown the final score was a well earned draw Midleton 4-9 Cobh 5-6.

Next league game is away to home to Eire Og on Wednesday July 07th in Clonmult Park with an 8pm throwin

Midleton Panel: Jill Connaughton, Elle McManus, Ruthi Hennessy, Laura Goulding, Muireann Ni Chonchubhair, Emily Lamb, Aoife Fitzgerald, Emma O’Sullivan, Isabelle Nestor, Kelly Quirke, Saoirse Ni Theangana , Beth Ryan, Amy McCarthy, Emma O’Neill, Rachel Ryan, Lora Dineen, Seana O’Brien, Rachel Greene, Rionnach Finn, Jade Fitzgerald, Kate O’Sullivan, Pippa Hennessy, Sorcha Cronin, Kate Sanderson

Midleton U14 V Cobh, challenge game, Sat June 26th.

On Saturday 26th June we played a very competitive challenge game away to Cobh who kindly invited us to O Connell park. Midleton got some early scores from both Sarah McConville and Faye Dunlea taking great points from open play. Cobh replied with some nice points of their own and the sides went in level at half time. The second half started with the two teams exchanging goals and points early on. Miriam Finn played a great game in midfield and put in some great ball to our forward line. Cara Foley put in a player of the match performance at wing forward showing off her skills and pace. Cobh played really well and Midleton were only one point down thanks to some great defending including brilliant goalkeeping from Kate Griffin. With probably the last pick of the game Cobh scored a goal and the final score was

Midleton 3-5

Cobh 4-6

A big thank you to Cobh, Barry Day for refereeing and our ever loyal travelling support.

 

U14 Team v Cobh

Midleton U14A Versus Glen Rovers League Match

Our Second Round of the League took place on a very warm Wednesday evening where our girls took on Glen Rovers on home soil, this was our first time pitted against one of the city's oldest clubs. Midleton quickly got into the game with some nice scores from Mia Collins, Faye Dunlea and Kate O Sullivan. As expected the Glen Rovers rallied well and levelled the game at 3-2 going in to the half time break. After receiving their instructions from the selectors at the break the girls came out for the second half and found another gear and quickly raced into a handsome lead with our forwards putting a further 4 goals and 9 points on the board to Glen Rovers 2 points, we introduced our subs throughout the second half with Chloe Griffin, Leila Garde Berdassa, Cara Wallace, Sophie Wall and Emma Keeshan all playing their part and helping the team to an emphatic win over Glen Rovers who were a well coached outfit and kept battling away to the final whistle.

Condolences

Cumann Luthchleas Gael Mhainistir na Corann would like to offer our condolences to the extended O’Brien family on the passing of their dad Paddy. A proud Éire Óg man who, along with his brothers Billy and Derry also hurled with their division Muskerry, defeating Midleton in the first round of the county senior championship in 1963. Paddy lodged in the Mill Road when he first came to the town and having met and married his future wife and lifelong partner Dinah (Savage) they reared their family in number 1 Park Street before moving to the Rocky Road. Paddy and his brother Billy both played with the Midleton intermediate team in the 1960’s. When his sons Seán Ó and Padraig started playing with the club Paddy became involved and acted as a selector in many under age and adult teams in the 1970/80’s. These teams brought great success to the club but no doubt his greatest day was the 9th Oct 1983 when, along with the recently departed Ollie O’Keeffe, he acted as selector on the senior team that brought the county senior championship to the club for the first time since 1916. Another great day for him, his family and the club came in 2013 when Paddy’s grandson Padraig O’Shea captained our senior team to our 7th county senior success. Along with Dinah he was a regular attendee at all club games and was ever present at training sessions in the club no matter what the team or grade involved. Paddy’s contribution to the club was immense, may he rest in peace along with the love of his life Dinah.

The club would also like to convey our sympathies to the Cahill family 10 Joseph Ahern’s Terrace on the passing of Michael Cahill junior. His family is steeped in the history of Midleton GAA club with his brother Liam playing on our winning Intermediate team of 1978 and also has a county winning under 21 medal. His father Mick Cahill played with the Cork minors in 1936 and was a star of Midleton teams around this time. Michael’s grandfather Pats Cahill played and starred on our county winning senior teams of 1914/16 along with winning a Croke cup medal in 1914. Michael’s nephew Ian Kenefick has also won County senior and under 21 medals with the club and continues his family’s contribution to club teams.
