Thank you to Bandon for making the effort to travel to East Cork.

UNDER 10

Our U10 girls travelled to Aghada for their first outing of the year. The girls were divided into two teams so every girl had a lot of game time. They ended the day having a fun game of tug of war. Many Thanks to Aghada for organising a great afternoon.

UNDER 14

CAMOGIE

FE12 BLITZ

Our U-12 girls were in action on Saturday with a home blitz against Watergrasshill, Youghal and Erins Own in Park South. The girls gave an excellent performance and played with great skill and determination in all their games. Thanks to our referees, the parents and families for their support and to our East Cork neighbours for travelling and been part of a great evening of camogie. Well done all involved.

FE13 V ST FINBARRS 

Our U-13s were in action on Saturday with a challenge match against the Barrs in Togher. The girls were excellent against a strong Barrs team with Midleton coming out on top in the end. Thanks to the parents for travelling and to the Barrs for a great game and for hosting us.

MINOR LEAGUE V ENNISKEANE 

Our minor team played Enniskeane at home in Ballinacurra GAA on Thursday. Our winning streak continued as the girls came out winners on the evening to make it three wins out of three.

Thanks to Enniskeane for travelling up to play us and to all the parents and siblings who came to cheer us on. Well done girls on a super team effort.

JUNIOR LEAGUE V ST FANAHANS

MIDLETON 2-15 ST FANAHANS 0-4

We played St Fanahans in our second league match in Ballinacurra and ran out comfortable winners. After an even start, the scores were tied at 0-2 each after 10 minutes but we started to take control and never looked back. With Megan Kelly and Leah Hogan outstanding in our full-back line, Aoife Fitzgerald very steady at #6 and Yvonne Abernethy dominant in midfield the platform was set for our forwards to take control. Rebecca Cassidy 2:-0, Jodie Keegan O’Connell 0-3, Abbie Foley and Sadhbh Beausang 0-2 each all gave great performances upfront and had the Fanahan’s backline in trouble all night. Two wins from two now so well done all.

MIDLETON: Jill Connaughton, Megan Kelly, Leah Hogan, Mischa Daly-Harkin, Roisin O’Callaghan, Aoife Fitzgerald (0-1), Caoimhe Cronin, Yvonne Abernethy (0-1), Vivienne Gleeson (0-3F), Emma O’Sullivan, Sadhbh Beausang (0-2), Abbie Foley (0-2), Rayanna Power, Rebecca Cassidy (2-0), Jodie Keegan O’Connell (0-3), Rachel Ryan (0-2), Jade Fitzgerald, Ruthie Hennessy (0-1), Elle McManus.

On Saturday 7th May our Coaching Officer Mark O’Sullivan will walk from Youghal to Midleton all in aid of local boy Kacper, who is a Juvenile Player with Midleton GAA and who is very ill at the moment. Please come out and show your support along the route as he passes through Killeagh, Castlemartyr and finishes off at Midleton GAA. Mark is encouraging all players from all clubs  to wear their jerseys in Support of Kacper and this fundraiser.

FE7

Our Fe7s travelled to Killeagh for a football blitz. It was a lovely morning for all involved.

FE12

On Wednesday last our Fe12 boys travelled to Nemo for their first Rebel Og East group 6 football league game. A hard evening’s football followed but the boys showed great heart and played a much better second half. Final score: Midleton 2-4 Nemo Rangers 7-5.

On Sunday the boys began their Rebel Og East group 1 hurling league in glorious sunshine away to Sarsfields.  Final score: Midleton 4-7 Sarsfields 0-3.

FE13 P1 HURLING LEAGUE

FE15 C3 HURLING LEAGUE

We travelled to Church Road on Monday evening to take on Blackrock and we came away with a great win on a score of 3-11 to 2-8. Well done lads.

FE16 FOOTBALL LEAGUE

On Sunday our Fè16s took on St. Nicks in what was their first competitive game at Park South. We had never managed to beat Nick’s in our many meetings over the years and the task was made even more difficult on Sunday with suspensions, injuries and people unavailable.

Luckily we are playing in a 13 a side league and we just managed the bare 13 players and were able to field a team.

The match was a tough encounter as usual with Midleton getting off to a great start playing very attractive football and working hard all over the pitch and were leading by 14 points with five minutes to go to half-time but two late goals meant Nick’s were still in the game at half time score 4-9 to 3-4 at the break.

Nick’s came on strong in the second-half but Midleton managed the game well into the wind, keeping possession well and picking off their scores as they presented themselves. This group have had many great football moments down the years and this was right up there with the best of them and it had to be to beat this Nick’s side, every player put in a shift and the maturity and team effort meant we ran out winners by 4-16 to 5-8.

MIDLETON: Patrick Dooley (0-1), Eoghan Frazer, F Kelly(0-1), J.P. McManus, Luca Brodkorb (0-1), Alex Cahill, James McSweeney (2-0), Sean McSharry (2-6), Callum McSweeney, Tomas Dunlea, Jack Foley (0-1), Darragh Egan, Odhran Dennigan (0-5), Conor Morley(0-1), Adam O'Connor.

FE17

The great run continues for the Fe17s as they made it four wins from four in Carrigtwohill on Friday night. The final score was: Carrigtwohill 1-6 Midleton 2-12.
