Midleton Hurling and Football, Ladies Football and Camogie Club News - December 8

08 December, 2022



A crisp dry day saw the game get off to a bad start for the Magpies with a goal conceded to Castlehaven almost from the throw-in. However Midleton quickly regrouped and following some lovely slick moves Aisling McCarthy slotted over. Castlehaven quickly replied with a point of their own and soon disaster followed when some slack marking allowed Castlehaven to rocket the net for the second time.

This left the score after seven minutes: Castlehaven 2-1 to Midleton 0-1. Midleton responded fairly quickly with a point before Castlehaven replied with one themselves. Then the Magpies got into their groove and some great movement saw Aisling blast to the top corner but yet again Castlehaven responded with a goal of their own to leave the score at 3-2 to 1-2. They followed up with another point soon after and you'd have to think the girls from the West are just that bit more ready for this.

However Midleton had no intention of throwing in the towel and soon after Ava McAuliffe hit a rasper to the top corner and then what came next couldn't be bought in a lotto shop. Two quick fire goals by Aisling and Ava to somehow see the Magpies edge two points in front!! Unbelievable stuff! 

The second-half started slightly less hectic but Castlehaven soon got into their stride with a fine point after a lovely move. Midleton responded through the boot of captain Sophie Mc Carthy Keane soon after and the intensity had gone up a notch yet again. Some tough teak defending by Emma, Alyx and substitute Sheila held firm until Castlehaven went further ahead to lead by three but then as they've done all year these Magpie girls don't know what defeat is and after a blistering 40 yard run Saoirse raised the green flag with a rocket to back of the net. A game of ages as the man said!

A fine fisted point by Rachel was preceded by a Castlehaven point but then as she had been all match the unbelievable Saoirse rattled to the net twice in a matter of seconds!! What a score line 7-5 to 4-9!!! At this point midfielders Kate and Grainne got a grip on proceedings and it looked like Midleton's day with 15 minutes remaining. A harsh free 14 yards out saw Castlehaven narrow the gap to six. Saoirse scored a fabulous left footer shortly after and having an unbelievable game. You can keep your €15 pints of Budweiser in the heat of Qatar.. .. Bishopstown was the place to be. Sorcha, Aoife and Isabelle helped shut up shop and the half-forward line of Rachel, Aisling and Ava used the cuteness of a Kerryman by working the ball out to wings to slow the clock!! And that's it no more scores and the Magpies win yet another county title!! Player of the match had to be the outstanding Saoirse Ni Theangana.

Defeat is not a word in their dictionary and if they stay at it who knows what can be achieved. What a day and a great day for the parish as the man said! The future of ladies football is as bright as any star on any Christmas tree around! 

Final score: Midleton 7-8 Castlehaven 4-10. Congrats to all the panel of players and management.

Midleton GAA Chairman John Fenton and secretary Liam Wade receiving our Green Clubs plaque at last weekend's conference in Croke Park.

The Green Club Programme was established to support Gaelic Games clubs in taking simple and effective sustainability action in their grounds and activities. The Programme is structured around the themes of Energy, Water, Waste, Biodiversity and Travel & Transport and is designed to promote sustainability awareness and action in GAA clubs and communities. The Green Club Programme is a partnership between the GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association and local authorities across Ireland. 

Phase 1 of the Green Club Programme ran from 2021 to 2023 with the participation of over 30 clubs from across Ireland. These trail-blazing Green Clubs established Green Teams, carried out club audits and engaged in exciting sustainability partnerships and projects. The experience and input of the Phase 1 Green Clubs led to the development of the GAA’s first-ever Green Club Toolkit

Last weekend, John Fenton and Liam Wade travelled to Corke Park for the launch of the GAA Green Club Toolkit. It contains resources, advice and guidance, tailored especially for GAA clubs and members, in the areas of Energy, Water, Waste, Biodiversity and Travel & Transport. The Toolkit also contains inspiring, practical case studies from Green Clubs from across the island of Ireland.

The Toolkit is available to all GAA, LGFA and Camogie clubs and members at: 

Below is the Midleton GAA Case Study on our biodiversity efforts for Park South and this case study is featured on the Green Club website.

Thanks to all involved for their great work in this project.
