Our Junior 1 team played their league game versus Beara on Sunday in Adrigole GAA Club. 

It was an early start for the girls as we left Midleton GAA at 9.15am, arriving in Adrigole at 12 noon for a 1pm throw in.  Midleton won the toss so we decided to play with the slight wind in the first-half. The conditions were perfect for football it was nearly as hot as Malaga so in fairness to the referee he agreed to play with water breaks. 

From the off the girls were in full control….our running off the shoulder was excellent and the ball was passed through the lines to the girl in the best position.  At the first water break the score was 1-5 to 0-2.  The girls from Beara worked very hard but just could not break our girls down.  Half-time scoreline Midleton 2-8 to Beara 0-3. 

The second-half started and Beara were pressing up on the kick out waiting for the break but our girls gave Rayanna Power in goals plenty of options. The second water break came and Midleton were leading 3-11 to 0-6.  At the final whistle Midleton were comprehensive winners on a scoreline of 4-16 to 0-6.  The full-time score did not reflect the work rate of the Beara girls who never gave up the future is bright for them as they had some great passages of play. 

Sincere thanks to the 20 Midleton girls who travelled, the girls worked very hard on the pitch but it was a long day arriving back in Midleton at 5pm. Special thanks to our five U-16 girls who travelled and who all got good game time.  Sincere thanks to Beara for providing refreshments after the game it was much appreciated. 

MIDLETON: Rayanna Power, Denise Collins, Lucy Lawton, Megan Kelly, Caoimhe Cronin, Deirdre Corcoran, Leah Hogan, Abby Quirke(1-0), Claire O’Brien(0-2), Molly Beausang (2-6), Lucy Wallace, Claudia Kearney, Ella Quirke(1-0), Amy McCarthy(0-4), Rachel Quirke (0-2), Saoire Ní Theangana (0-1), Rachel Ryan (0-1), Kate Saunderson, Lily Kelly, Kate O’Sullivan.


This year due to the great numbers we have at this age level this group have been divided into two teams Girls U-11 and U-12. This will allow all players to get a lot of game time.

Our U-11 girls started off their league campaign this week with an away fixture against Inch Rovers. Great numbers turned up and all the effort put into practice at training showed on the pitch. A brilliant display of football saw the girls off to a winning start. Final score Midleton 2-5 Inch Rovers2-2. Our U12 girls will start their set of matches with a home fixture next Monday away to Aghada. A text with all details regarding matches and training for both groups will be sent each week.


With all groups now in league action training will alter from week to week. Can Parents please ensure to keep an eye on messaging. Also, it is very important to respond if your daughter is either available or unavailable so that Coaches can plan their teams in advance.


Well done to Orlagh Farmer and the Cork Ladies Football team who defeated Waterford in the Munster Championship semi-final on Sunday. They will now play Kerry in Killarney on May 28th at 12.30pm. This match is part of a double header with the men’s semi-final.




Our Fe9 girls played their first game of the season away to Dungourney. Numbers were down in our group for lots of reasons but that didn’t stop our girls as we had a great morning of hurling against strong opposition. All the girls tried their hearts out despite some minor injuries and the heat. Well done ladies. Thanks to Dungourney for hosting us.


Our Fe10s enjoyed a blitz recently against Castlemartyr and Cobh. We fielded two teams and they played three matches each where they displayed plenty of skills. They have been practising in training with plenty of blocks, some fantastic hand passes and lots of shots on goal. Thanks to Castlemartyr for hosting and both Cobh and Castlemartyr for such competitive and exciting games. Well done to all involved for a great morning.


Our Fé12s were in action again with an away blitz against Cobh, Youghal and Castlemartyr in Cobh. The girls gave a good performance and played with great determination in all their three games. Thanks to the referees, the host team Cobh and the other teams for making it a competitive evening of Camogie. Thanks again to the parents and families for their support. Well done all involved.


Our Fé13s were in Imokilly league action against St Catherine’s in Ballynoe. Unfortunately it wasn’t our day but the girls battled to the end well done to every girl out on the pitch. Congratulations to Leah who captained on the day against St Catherine’s.


Our Fé16 girls, Midleton 1 team started their league campaign at home in Park South to a strong Fr O’Neills team. The girls knew this would be a competitive game from the start. Each and every girl played with determination and showed great commitment from the start. With Midleton coming out on top. Thanks to Fr O’Neills for travelling and we wish them all the best for future games. Well done to our captain Kelly Quirke.


Midleton 4-18 Kilworth 2-1

In our final Group League we had a comfortable home win over Kilworth in Ballinacurra. Despite hitting some early wides we kept pushing forward and when we did start to find the target there was only going to be one result. Jodie Keegan O’Connell top scored with 1-7. Rebecca Cassidy was close behind with 2-3 and Sadhbh Beausang added 0-4. Scores also from Abbie Foley, Yvonne Abernethy, Emma O’Sullivan, Rayanna Power and also Rachel Ryan from the bench saw us run out the easiest of winners. Final score Midleton 4-18 to Kilworth 2-1.

Having topped our group we can now look forward to a home Semi Final in the next couple of weeks, details to follow.

MIDLETON: Vivienne Gleeson, Ruthie Hennessy, Leah Hogan, Megan Kelly, Mischa Daly Harkin, Aoife Fitzgerald, Caoimhe Cronin, Yvonne Abernethy 0-1, Lucy Wallis, Emma O’Sullivan 0-1, Sadhbh Beausang(0-4), Abbie Foley (0-1), Rayanna Power 1-0, Rebecca Cassidy(2-3), Jodie Keegan O’Connell (1-7), Molly Beausang, Rachel Ryan 0-1, Jade Fitzgerald, Muireann Ni Chonchubhair


Well done to Faye Dunlea  and Roisin Mcmanus who played with Cork U-14s against Clare, Wexford and Kilkenny in Ennis. Also representing the Cork U-14s were Robyn Keating  and Sarah  McConville who played in a monster blitz in Ennis. Cork and Tipperary could not be separated after two sessions of extra time so was decided to share. Well done to all players on a great performance.


We would like to wish our player Sarah Goulding (pictured, wearing number 5) the very best of luck as she represents Gaelscoil Mhainistir Na Corann and our own U13s in the primary game in Thurles next Sunday May 22nd for the Cork v Tipp match. Great achievement Sarah, we hope you enjoy the experience.




On Saturday morning last our young Magpies took to the field in Clonmult Memorial Park for a football blitz. It was an action packed morning, where we fielded six teams and each team played three games. Our Magpies again played some very tough and competitive matches against Youghal and Cobh. We have been working very hard in training the last number of weeks and it was great to see our players showing what they learned on the pitch. It is great to see the enthusiasm and team spirit developing and we look forward to the coming months. 


Our lads travelled to Caherlag on Saturday for a Hurling Blitz against Erin's Own and Aghada. We broke our 28 players into three teams for this blitz.

The three teams were outstanding on the day in all their games getting great scores throughout each of the games. 

We would like to thank Erin's Own Fé10s for inviting us to this blitz. Once again thanks to all the parents in this group for their great support.


Our Fé11 hurlers entertained Douglas in Clonmult Memorial Park on Saturday and a great morning’s hurling was enjoyed by all.


This was the Fé12 boys’ second game in the Group 1 East hurling grading league. A home fixture versus Douglas in a windy Park South saw the lads off to a hard start trailing at half time 1-2 to 3-4. 

The boys came out fighting in the second-half and great team effort saw them over the line by the narrowest of margins. FINAL SCORE: Midleton 4-4 Douglas 3-6


Next up for the Fé12 boys was a home tie in Clonmult Memorial Park on Wednesday last versus Sarsfields in the Group 6 East hurling grading league.  The boys put in a massive shift but a very strong Sars team took the win. Midleton 0-2 Sarsfields 7-5.


We travelled to Innishannon to take on home side Valley Rovers in the P1 Hurling league this week and we came away with a great win on a score of 1-20 to 1-10.


We played out a thriller with Douglas in the P1 hurling league and in the end we narrowly lost out on a scoreline of 2-8 to 0-12.

Well known Magpie Noel Bransfield recently posted this on Twitter and he's wondering if it was indeed the first ever such goal at Clonmult Memorial Park or by a Midleton goalkeeper? Let me know and I'll pass it on....

"Should goalkeepers be allowed to score from a puckout ?" U19 hurling league recently, Brion Saunderson- Midleton and Cork U-20 keeper scored a goal from 142m puckout on a dry and very calm nite. Congratulations Brion- another piece of history to the famed Clonmult Memorial Park.
