GOLF SOCIETY

US OPEN

Sticking with golf it was great to see two former Midleton and Cork senior hurlers, Eamonn Murphy and David Quirke show up in the coverage of the US Golf Open over the weekened. This No Laying Up Twitter page has nearly 375k followers so it's safe to say that the boys are now (more) famous than they ever were. There's a rumour going around that one of those US Open head covers will be a prize at the upcoming Midleton GAA Golf Classic but we are awaiting confirmation.....

CAMOGIE

FÉ9 V AGHADA

Aghada hosted our Fé9 girls on Wednesday evening in glorious sunshine. Our girls battled through the matches with great skill on display. Well done to each and every one. Thanks to Aghada Camogie Club for hosting us and all the parents for supporting our girls.

FÉ10 V COBH & ERINS OWN

Our Fé10 girls travelled to Cobh on Saturday to play Cobh and Erin’s Own in the final series of games in this round of the Go Games competition. The girls displayed great camogie skills in all of their games with each girl battled very hard. Thanks to all the girls for their super performances despite lots of knocks and bruises.

Many thanks to Cobh Camogie Club for hosting and Erins Own for travelling. A huge thank you to the parents who travelled with their girls and to all the coaches involved. One final mention of thanks to the Midleton girls who volunteered to play on Cobh’s side as they were down numbers. We still love you despite scoring against us. Magpies Abú. Well done to all.

FÉ12 V FR. O’NEILLS

Well done to all our Fé12 girls who were in action against Fr. O'Neill at home in Park South on Tuesday evening under a beautiful sunny sky. Great to see plenty of skills being demonstrated by both teams, with end to end, defending and attacking, this game was evenly contested. Special mention to Sophia who captained the team with great spirit. Thank you to Fr. O’Neills, the coaches, referees and all those involved in the match.

Training as normal during the week

FÉ13 V SLIABH RUA

Our Fé13s were in U-14B2 league action in Clonmult Memorial Park on Friday evening. It was a tough competitive game against a strong Sliabh Rua side with our girls coming out on top in the end. Thanks to the parents for the fantastic support as always. Well done to Jaimey who was outstanding as captain of girls on the night.

FÉ14 V FR. O’NEILLS

Our Fé14 Camogie team hosted Fr O’Neills at Park South on Thursday evening in the Imokilly League. It was a perfect evening for a game and from the warm up it was very evident that the girls themselves were really looking forward to it. They have been putting in a lot of work in training to understand the importance of finding the player in a better position and the passing was excellent. One move in particular when a ball was intercepted at centre back, passed perfectly to a free midfielder, who then passed to a free half forward and finally dropped to a full forward that struck for a fantastic goal was amazing to watch.

Special mention to our captain Emma. Another great win for a fantastic group of girls that are a pleasure to work with. Keep it up girls.

FÉ16 V CLONAKILTY

On Saturday evening the U-16 team one team travelled to Clonakilty with just 15 players. We knew this match was going to be a tough one. At half time the score was 1-2 to 0-5. We missed a couple of opportunities in the first half but we came out fighting in the second-half. Unfortunately Clonakilty just pipped us at the post by a mere three points.

These girls worked their socks off and we are so proud of them. A massive thank you to all the players that travelled and to the parents for your continued support. Thanks to Clonakilty for hosting us and wishing you all the best in the campaign going forward. Well done to Kelly Quirke for captaining our league team. Final score 2-7 to 2-4.

CORK U-14S    

Congratulations to Midleton players Sarah and Robyn who both Captained their Cork U-14 Teams on Sunday in Waterford.

Also representing her club and county was Faye Dunlea who lined out with Cork U14s on Sunday morning in WIT. They came up against Tipperary, Limerick and Waterford. Speedy recovery to Roisín on her recent injury. Hope to see you back on the pitches shortly.

The Sean Og Murphy and Denis Conroy Cups also went down a treat. Thanks to Sean and Cian for the demonstration.

HARD LUCK LADS

Hard luck to Conor, Sean, Tommy and Sam and all involved with the Cork senior hurlers as their 2022 season came to an end on Saturday when they suffered defeat to Galway in the All-Ireland Quarter-finals in Thurles.

 

JUVENILES

FÉ8S

It has been a busy few weeks for the Fé8s. First we travelled to Togher to take on the Barrs for a morning’s hurling.

This was followed by another hurling game this week against the Rockies in Blackrock (pictured above). All the games were keenly contested and we were very pleased with the performance of all our players.

FÉ12S

Both Fé12 teams were in hurling action this week. The Group One team enjoyed an away win in Carrigtwohill, while our Group Six team suffered defeat on the road in Ballincollig (pictured above).

FÉ13 FOOTBALL

Our Fé13 team had a great win away to Glanmire in the P1 Football League over the week. Well done lads and keep it up.

FÉ14 P1 HURLING SHIELD FINAL

The final of the Fé14 P1 hurling shield saw the Midleton lads come up against near neighbours Carrigtwohill in Killeagh on Friday night. This eagerly awaited contest saw Carrigtwohill make the quickest start, with two early goals putting them in a commanding position early on. However, the lads showed great determination to hurl their way back into the game. Two goals from captain Senan Carroll and a spread of fine point taking from six different Midleton players left the half-time score Midleton 2-10 Carrigtwohill 3-5.

However, playing with the aid of a strong wind in the second-half, Carrigtwohill began to get on top with two further goals making the task very difficult for the Midleton lads. However, they continued to show great determination right to the final whistle and were unlucky on a number of occasions not to get the scores their hurling deserved. In the end Carrigtwohill ran out deserving winners on the day on a final scoreline of Midleton 2-10 Carrigtwohill 5-15.

MIDLETON: Michael Allegrini, Jason Morley, Peader Egan, Rian Casey, Jack Walsh, Max Murphy, Scott Dunlea, Cian Lawton, Harry Waterman, Dara Birdthistle, Senan Carroll (Captain), Darragh Mullins, Shane O’Mahony, James Carey, Sean Gregory, Adam Spillane, Patrick Collins, James O’Meara, Bradley O’Brien, Jamie O’Donovan, Ewan Murphy.

LADIES FOOTBALL

UNDER 14

The Midleton U-14s had a rematch with Delaneys/St Vincents for the East Cork B League Cup. Midleton got off to a great start. Despite a late surge by Delaneys/St Vincents, Midleton never lost their composure and kept up the pressure until the final whistle. The final scoreline was Midleton 3-12 Delaneys/St Vincents 2-2. Massive credit is due to each and every player on our panel. They all contributed to getting to an East Cork Final. Well done to our Captain Emma (below) who accepted the cup on behalf of her teammates. We are very very proud of you all. We celebrated the victory with gusto by driving through the Main Street after the game. Congratulations all. Magpies Abú.

UNDER 16

Our U-16 ladies finished in a three-way tie in their league campaign. It was decided to play a round robin play off with Rockbán and Aghada. First up for Midleton was an away fixture with Aghada. Midleton started out with great determination and were on the score board quickly. It was a very fast pace game but great credit is due to the girls for keeping up. Well done ladies on securing the win. Final score was Midleton 2-8 Aghada 1-9.

Special mention must go to our U14 girls who stepped up massively to help out their fellow club players and to Sorcha who pulled off some crucial and impressive saves in goals. We will go on to face Rockbán next Monday in Clonmult Park at 7.30pm.
