CAMOGIE

FANTA’S FUNDRAISIER WALK

Huge Congratulations to our camogie coaching officer, Mark ‘Fanta’ O’Sullivan Aka and David ‘Dots’ Tobin who completed a gruelling walk from Youghal to Midleton (Fanta in full fireman's gear on a roasting day - see above) on Saturday all in aid of local boy Kacper. Thanks to all who supported him along the way and all who came along to the club to cheer him on as he finished his walk. Also a huge thank you to Hurleys, Supervalu Midleton who provided fresh fruit and refreshments along the way.

FÉ10 GO GAME BLITZ

A great morning's Camogie was had on Bank Holiday Sunday the 1st May At Clonmult Memorial Park. The teams involved were: Midleton, Sars and Erins Own with two teams from each club so every team played three matches of 15 minutes straight through. It was a competitive blitz as Erin's Own and Sars have strong teams but our girls produced an impressive display of camogie during all their matches and demonstrated lots of skills in terms of being first to the ball and then rising the ball and either hand passing or taking confident shots at goal. There was also lots of strong blocking and deFénding from the girls who played in the backs. Overall we are very proud of how these girls are working together as a team and are looking forward to their next match so they can further develop the skills they are practicing in training. Our next match will be away to Castlemartyr on Sunday May 16th. Time to be confirmed. All support is very welcome!

FÉ12 BLITZ

Well done to our Fé12s who took part in a four team blitz  with Fr O’Neills, Aghada and Youghal. A fantastic team effort and great individual performances from all the girls. Many thanks to Fr O’Neills for hosting and congratulations to Margaret Spellman who was our captain for the day.

FÉ13 V ROCKBÁN

Our Fé13s got off to a winning start in the U-14B County League with a great win over Rockbán in Whitechurch. A great team display from the girls well done to all involved. Well done to Ciara Hynes who captained her team on the day.

FÉ13 V CASTLELYONS

Our second outing of the week saw us kicking off the Imokilly league campaign with a win away to Castlelyons. The girls were excellent in glorious conditions. Well done to Gabrielle Smith who captained her team to victory over Castlelyons. Gabby was outstanding as always. A special mention our three U-12s who played up with the U13s on the day - Jessica, Anna and Margaret. Well done girls a super performance from all of you. Next up is a trip to Ballynoe to play St Catherines. Details to follow.

FÉ14 V INNISCARRA

On Sunday our Fè14 Camogie team took on Inniscarra in their first competitive game of the year at Clonmult Memorial Park. The girls have been drawn in an extremely competitive league group this year and were all well aware that there would be no easy games. They have been training extremely hard and it was great to see all their hard work paying off. The girls chose to play with the wind in the first-half and worked tirelessly throughout the field to lead at the finish of the half. A three point lead was not a lot, considering the strength of the breeze, but the girls were fully determined to work even harder in the second-half. They were a joy to watch and finished out the game with an impressive scoresheet. Well done to every one of the girls. A great way to get the season kick started!

MINORS V NA PIARSAIGH

Our minor girls had a win over Na Piarsaigh 1-9 to 1-2. We are now top of our group and qualify for Minor A semi-final to be held in June. Venue and dates TBC. Well done to all involved on another great win.

JUNIOR LEAGUE

Midleton 4-15 Buttevant 1-1

We made it three wins from three with a dominant performance over Buttevant in Midleton on Saturday night. We took control of this game early with Vivienne Gleeson from frees and Abbie Foley and Sadhbh Beausang points from play giving us  a great start.

Two goals from Rebecca Cassidy and another from Jodie Keegan O’Connell before half-time put us in a commanding position at the break. With Lucy Wallis excellent in midfield, Leah Hogan, Ruthie Hennessy and Yvonne Abernethy in control at the back we ran out deserving  winners. Some of our younger players played in the second-half and contributed to a great all-round performance. Well done all.

MIDLETON: Jill Connaughton, Ruthie Hennessy, Leah Hogan, Jade Bradley,  Roisin O’Callaghan, AoiFé Fitzgerald, Caoimhe Cronin, Yvonne Abernethy, Vivienne Gleeson (0-4F), Lucy Wallis, Emma O’Sullivan, Sadhbh Beausang(1-5), Abbie Foley (0-2), Rayanna Power, Rebecca Cassidy (2-1), Jodie Keegan O’Connell (1-2), Hannah Power, Rachel Ryan, Jade Fitzgerald, Saoirse Ni Theangana (0-1), Muireann Ni Chonchubhair.

JUVENILES

FÉ8S

It has been a busy few weeks for the Fé8s. Last week we travelled to Cobh for a morning's hurling (above). This was followed by another hurling game this week against Erins Own (below). All the games were keenly contested and we were very pleased with the performance of all our players.

FÉ9 HURLING V ABBEYSIDE  

The Fé9 group recently took a bus trip to Waterfod for a series of challenge games against Abbeyside. We had approximately 30 magpies lining out on the day across four teams. In windy but sunny conditions, the lads really acquitted themselves well with some great skill on show and some fine scores taken in all of the matches. Thanks to John Geary (former Midleton GAA Juvenile coach)  Neil Power and everyone in Abbeyside GAA for being such fantastic hosts and for providing much needed refreshments for players and coaches alike before we boarded the bus and sang our way back to Midleton. A great day was had by all.

FÉ10 V ST. COLMANS

We hosted St Colmans on Saturday in Gaelic Football. We had 25 players in attendance for this, where they were broken into three teams of 8/9 each. All three groups were excellent on the day getting great scores throughout all the games. We would like to thank St Colmans for making the short trip to us on Saturday no doubt we will meet again. Thanks again to all the parents in our group for their great support.

FÉ14 P2 FOOTBALL V AGHADA

The Fé14 football league continued with a short trip to Rostellan to play Aghada. After a slow opening quarter, the lads got on the scoresheet with a rocket of a goal from Ewan Murphy. It was a close encounter for the remainder of the first-half with the lads going in a point down at half time, 0-7 to 1-3. The second-half was equally as close but a cool finish to the back to the net by Dara Birdthistle midway through the half proved to be decisive. With the help of some heroic defending from the whole team in the second period, the lads held out for a deserving victory on a final score line of 1-8 to 2-7.

MIDLETON: Bradley O’Brien, Jason Morley, Harry Waterman (captain), Rian Casey, Patrick Collins, Shane O’Mahony, Cuan Twomey, Dara Birdthistle, Darragh Mullins, James O’Meara, Max Murphy, Ruairi O’Riordan, Scott Dunlea, Cian Lawton, Ewan Murphy, Fionn Bohan, Patrick O’Dowd, Donnacha Horgan, Jamie O’Donovan, Adam Spillane, Sean Gregory, James Carey, Michael AllegrinI, Senan Carroll.

KACPER FUNDRAISER

Well done Mark 'Fanta' O’Sullivan and everyone involved in the fundraising walk for Midleton GAA Fé14 player Kacper Kozlowski on Saturday.
