Midleton Hurling and Football, Ladies Football and Camogie Club News - September 29

29 September, 2022


FÉ16 LEAGUE FINAL                                                                                                                                        MIDLETON 0-20 INNISCARRA 1-15

Our Fé16 hurlers travelled to Ballyanly on Sunday to take on Inniscarra for a long awaited league final.
For practically all of the current year the lads have been part of the Fé17 group, training and playing P1 and C3.  We managed to qualify for this final after some excellent performances earlier in the season. A perfect day for hurling was helped by the no nonsense approach of the referee and his team of officials.  
A Jack Foley free settled us but Scarra responded in kind. Daragh Egan and Odhran Rabbitte had a point each from play, another  Scarra free was followed by a period of Midleton dominance with five points without reply to put us in a strong position. Scarra then hit four points on the trot. Another scoring burst saw us leading at half-time on a scoreline of Midleton 0-11 Inniscarra 0-8. 
On the resumption Jack and Daragh repeated their first-half start with a point apiece. Scarra then had two points on the bounce quickly followed by a fortuitous goal. It was end to end stuff at this stage with both teams going at it in what was a very tough but fair battle.   
Jack pointed a free, another Scarra point was answered with a point each from Daragh, Conor Morley and Fionn Kelly. As we headed down the finishing straight the scoring tackling and sheer effort continued unabated. Jack,  Conor and Daniel Garde had the scores which saw Scarra needing a goal but resolute defending from Adam O Connor, Eoghan Fraser, Thomas Dunlea and Odhran Dennigan saw us win out.  
This was truly a fantastic team performance from our lads with illness taking its toll on a number of players. Luca Brodkorb and Patrick Dooley also played huge roles in what was a very satisfying result.
We await the draw for the Fé 16 championship whIch is due to take place soon and the knockout format to begin the end of October (when else would you have it!!).

Just a week after their County Hurling Final win Midleton's Fé15s added a football title when they came out on top on a scoreline of 1-8 to 2-4. This was a great team performance but  special mention must go to Luke Riordan who kicked six points, Peter Barrett who scored 1-1 and Daniel Donovan with a point. Well done also to our goalkeeper Josh Foley for some fantastic saves in the second-half.

Our Fé15 Division 4 team will be hoping to emulate our P1 team when they also take on Sars in a county final on Saturday at 1pm in Castlemartyr. This team has been brilliant all year so hopefully lads ye can finish off a great year in style on Saturday. Best of luck lads.


Our Fé14 footballers travelled to Dungourney on Wednesday night last to take on the home side, Kiltha Óg in the League Final. 
After a very close contes it was the hosts who just came out on top on a final score of 2-8 to 2-4. Hard luck lads. 




We travelled to Douglas on Saturday with 40 players and each and every one of them gave a great account of themselves. We split into four teams played four games each and won the majority of the games. Well done lads. 
Football training this week at the earlier time of 6pm.

MIDLETON            1-20
CARRIGNAVAR     1-16                                                                                                   

Our Junior A hurlers booked their place in an East Cork semi-final on Sunday evening in Cobh when they produced an excellent performance to see off Carrignavar by four points.
There was nothing between the sides in the opening ten minutes before Carrignavar struck for the game's opening goal on 11 minutes to put them 1-3 to 0-2 in front. 
Midleton grabbed their goal on 20 minutes when Garan Manley struck for an excellent green flag to make it 1-5 apiece.
At the sound of the referee's final whistle it was Carrignavar who held a slight advantage on a score of 1-10 to 1-8.
The third quarter was shared at four points each to make it 1-14 to 1-12 after 45 minutes. But then we really upped the ante and three points in a row saw us hit the front on a score of 1-15 to 1-14 with 12 minutes to play.
With Cillian Hurley and Rory Hartnett causing all sorts of problems for the Carrignavar defence we extended our lead to two, 1-18 to 1-16, with four minutes to go and we weren't to be denied as we finished the stronger to see off Carrignavar and seal and excellent 1-20 to 1-16 victory at the final whistle. 
This was a great win and well done to all the players and management. This win sends us into a semi-final with Cobh (who we drew with in the group stages of this championship) in Carrigtwohill on this coming Sunday at 4.30pm.
Please come out and support the lads in their bid to reach an East Cork Final.

Scorers: P. O'Shea 0-9 (0-2 play), G. Manley 1-2, R. Hartnett 0-4, J. Comer and C. Hurley 0-2 each, B. O'Shea 0-1.

On the 30th of October I am running the Dublin Marathon in memory of our baby Fiadh and to fundraise for Crumlin (Children's Health Foundation). Fiadh was hospitalised and lived for five days there. The care and treatment that Fiadh received was absolutely outstanding. Every staff member was better than the next. The support that Mary and I got was also exceptional. The services that they provide for families in times of need make their task more manageable. Any donation provided would be greatly appreciated and would go a long way to ensuring this quality service continues.

Thanking you in advance,
Cian McCarthy.
