Our minor ladies have qualified for their league final. They will play Inch Rovers in the next fortnight. Time and venue tbc. 



Training times will be adjusting as we return to train under lights. Please make note of the new times when they are sent by text to all Parents. 




Our Fé7s had a great day out at the weekend when they travelled to Pairc Uí Chaoimh for a blitz where they took on Glen Rovers. 



It has been a busy few weeks for the Fé8s. We travelled to Killeagh for a hurling blitz. We fielded five teams and they all competed really well.
Then on Saturday last we hosted a football blitz playing games against Aghada and Lisgoold. Well done to all who took part.



Our lads hosted Carrigaline on Saturday in a Football Challenge game in Park South. We had good numbers for this game and each of the four teams that played showed great team Spirit in each of their games.
The lads got some great scores throughout each of the games and also put in some great defensive displays. We would like to thank Carrigaline U-10s for making the trip East, no doubt we will meet again.



A big well done to our Fé13s who brought the curtain down on a tremendous year by taking victory over Carrigaline in the Rebel Og Coiste C3 Division 5 Football League Final at Clonmult Memorial Park on Saturday. The final score was 6-4 to 3-5. Below Mauns Stewart receiving the Shield from Cathal McAllister.



Our county winning Fé13 team were this week honoured with a joint Rebel Óg Sports Award for August with the Ballincollig Fé13 P1 footballers. The award was presented at a reception at the Clayton Siversprings Hotel this week and was attended by Midleton and Ballincollig players, coaches, family members and representatives from Bord na nÓg, Cummins Sports, RedFM, the Clayton Hotel and The Echo.

The Midleton players present were: Liam Walsh, Alfie Hennessy, Peader Egan and Ciarán Kelly. Here are some pictures from the day. Well done lads.



The Fé14 panel made the trip to Waterford City last Sunday for a hurling challenge game against Mount Sion. 
We were delighted to have 24 players on the bus making the trip and all players got at least a half hour of hurling action on the day. The game turned out to be very competitive with only a single score between the teams at the end with the hosts coming out on top. Thanks to all at Mount Sion GAA who made us very welcome with lotS of food and refreshments for players and coaches in their clubhouse after The game. It was a great day out for all involved.



It was definitely a case of so near and yet so far for our Fé15 D4 team in their County Final clash with Sarsfields on Saturday. This was a cracking game from start to finish and at the finals whistle we were just denied by a single point to our East Cork neighbours. Well done lads on a great season and hard luck on the last hurdle.


Our Fé17s are into the semi-finals of the C3 Hurling League after they were 5-15 to 0-14 victors over Bandon at Clonmult Memorial Park on Sunday. 



The new GAA season is nearly here - calling all JUNIOR INFANT BOYS looking to start GAA training with Midleton GAA. Training starts in the middle of October so sign up today. #MagpiesAbú.




The dream of the Magpies appearing in a first East Cork Junior A Final since 1999 came to an end on Sunday in Carrigtwohill when we lost out to Cobh.

There was nothing in it early on and after 16 minutes the sides were level at 0-3 each. But then three Midleton points in a row, from Garan Manley, Dan Cagney and Rory Hartnett saw the men in black and white lead by 0-6 to 0-3 after 21 minutes. But that was to be our final score of the opening half and Cobh hit four points without reply to lead at the break on a score of 0-7 to 0-6.

Cobh also added the opening three points of the second period to stretch their lead to four with 20 minutes to play. But points from Garan Manley (2) and Tim O'Sullivan saw us close to within two (0-11 to 0-9) with ten to play.

Then came the controversy. We had the ball in the net, through Tim O'Sullivan, to put us ahead with five minutes to paly but the referee was called back by the linesman and the play was brought back over 60 yards and the goal ruled out. That knocked the stuffing out of us and Cobh went on to finish the stronger and book their place in the final against Erins Own.

Hard luck lads but well done on a great run to the semi-finals.

Scorers: G. Manley 0-5 (0-2F), P. O'Shea (F), R. Hartnett, D. Cagney and Tim O'Sullivan 0-1 each.

MIDLETON: Peter Dowling, Colin Sunderland, Charlie Walsh, Neil Fitzgerald, Billy O'Shea, Aidan Ryan, Seamus O'Farrell, Adam Daly, Dan Cagney, Johnny Comer, Padraig O'Shea, Rory Hartnett, Ian Kennefick, Garan Manley, Michael Abernethy. Subs: Cillian Hurley for Abernethy, Tim O'Sullivan for Kennefick, Padraig Nagle for Comer, Evan Kelly for Cagney. 



All roads lead to Ballygarvan on this coming Saturday, October 8, for the U-19 East 1 Football Championship Final where Midleton take on St. Colmcille's (an amalgamation of Carrignavar and White's Cross. 

This team have played some wonderful football on the run to this final so it would be great if you could make it to Ballygarvan to support the lads. Throw-in is 5pm. Best of luck lads.



Thank you to Douglas GAA for hosting our U-9s along with Blackrock GAA on Sunday. A thrilling morning of camogie, with each Midleton team playing four matches. All the girls played their socks off. The camogie skills are getting better with each game. Up the Magpies.



Our Fé12s were in action again with an away league game on Sunday against Valley Rovers in Brinny. Well done to all the players who gave it their all in this very competitive game of camogie. The Midleton players were getting stuck in, with the team playing with great skill, passion and determination. It was a very close game with the hosts getting the win in the end. Thanks to Valley Rovers, the referee and all our supporters.



Our Fé14 Camogie team travelled to Ovens on Saturday to take on Eire Og in the Semi-Final of the U14 Premier County Championship. The girls had reached this stage of the competition after topping their Championship group by winning all their matches, a huge achievement in itself at the top level.
Eire Og had also topped their own Championship group so the girls were in no doubt of the challenge they would face. An exciting battle was expected and the game fully lived up to these expectations. From the throw-in everyone gave their all and the skills on display at this young age were absolutely first class. Tackling, hooking, blocking, catching, striking, soloing, first touch, scores from play, free taking and of course goals and points…. and that was only the first half! 
Both teams wore their hearts on their sleeves and worked tirelessly all over the field with never more than the puck of a ball between them, the lead swapping hands on a number of occasions, before the half finally came to a close with Eire Og a single point in front.
The girls took to the field for the second-half with a full appreciation of what they needed to do and the game actually stepped up in intensity as both teams fought to progress. With the scores level and time running out Eire Óg managed to get through the girl’s staunch defence to score a goal then won the resulting puck out and score a point to go four in front, the widest margin between the teams for the whole game. 
Now a lot of teams would fold at this point, but not this group, in injury time the girls won a free at midfield and dropped in a high ball to the full forward line. An almighty scramble resulted with the girls scoring the much needed goal! The girls sprinted out to face the puckout full of determination to close the gap once again but alas, the final whistle was blown when the ball was in the air. 
The resulting emotional scenes showed just how much the game meant to both sets of players with tears on both sides (myself included!). The very very best of luck to Eire Og in the final. You were absolutely fantastic on the day and we wish you every success.
The mentors of this amazing team would like to thank each and every girl for their effort and commitment this year. It is extremely important that we all stick together and keep learning and improving… Roll on Feile!!



Our U-14B2 team played a competitive challenge game against Dungourney U-14s on Sunday evening. The result didn’t go our way but it was a great run out for the girls who will be in championship action again later this month.



On Wednesday last our Fé16 girls played the semi-final of the premier plate. We knew going up against Glen Rovers was going to be a battle as to be competing in the premier group is a huge achievement. Each and every girl gave 100% but in the end we narrowly lost out by a single point. A massive thanks to all the girls for their commitment throughout the season and I've no doubt we will be back competing at this level again next year. We the mentors are extremely proud and we wish the girls involved in the minor championship the very best of luck. Best of luck to Glen Rovers in the final.


We are running a defibrillator course for coaches and club members with Ber Cotter on Tuesday next, October 11 in the club from 6.30pm to 9.30pm. Please book in by emailing or texting our camogie chairperson at: or 087-6374748. 



A massive congratulations to our former player Liam Clohessy who was part of the Shinrone squad that captured the club's first ever Offaly senior hurling championship title on Sunday last when they defeated Kilcormac/Killoughey in Tullamore. 
Liam was a super player for Midleton for many years and our loss is definitely Shinrone's gain. Liam hasn't done too bad since he made his way to the Faithful County....he now has junior, intermediate and senior Offaly county medals. Some going. Couldn't happen to a nicer fella. Well done Liam/Paschal.

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.
