Everyone at Midleton GAA would like to wish all our players, members, their family and friends a very happy and peaceful Happy Christmas. 

We would like to acknowledge all our members and friends who serve with the defences overseas. 

We would also like to thank everyone who helped us out in 2022 in anyway, committee members, coaches, selectors, players, sponsors, those invoved in preparing and maintaining our pitches and so many more people that work tirelessly for the betterment of our club in the background. We thank you all.



The Executive Committee of Midleton GAA have ratified the following management team to take charge of the Midleton senior hurling team for the 2023 season.

Midleton GAA wish to extend a sincere thanks to all those who sponsored prizes, bought and sold tickets and supported the draw in any way. This is a valuable fundraiser in the club and this work does not go unnoticed.



We held an internal Rebels' Bounty draw before Friday night's Christmas Raffle draw. This draw is for €100 for ten lucky winners who supported the Rebels' County draw in 2022. These were the lucky winners....

Tickets are now also on sale for the 2023 Rebel's Bounty draw. We are aiming to sell 500 tickets this year which would net us a wonderful €40,000 which would do so much for our club. We think this figure is very attainable but we need everyones help. Why not consider giving one as a Christmas present....the prizes are fantastic? 

You can buy tickets a the link below but make sure that you enter Midleton in the section that asks for your club.

On the 26 December 1982 the inaugural Midleton GAA long Puc competition from the Thatch Pub in Lisgoold to Midleton took place. Midleton GAA club can be proud of the fact that we initiated this competition which is now replicated throughout the country. Unlike modern day versions of the event only four teams of two competed in the first event. The teams, represented the road league districts were as follows;

Forkums: Kevin Hennessy and Ger Power (eventual winners)

Town: John Hartnett and Sylvie O'Mahony

Garryowen: Denis Mulcahy and Sean O'Brien

Sons of Rest: Tadhg Mc Carthy and John Fenton

Each of these players won multiple County senior county medals with the club as well as Munster and All Ireland club medals. All of them also won All Ireland medals with Cork. Each team had a marker and these were Anthony Mc Carthy, Mossy Quirke, Maurice Horgan and Seamus Kearney.    

1982 was a great year for the club with the club winning its second consecutive All Ireland club title in Kilmacud Crokes Dublin as well as the East Cork junior hurling championship. The East Cork minor hurling title was also annexed as well as the East Cork under 21 championship, whose team was captained by Kevin Hennessy who also won an All Ireland medal at the same grade with Cork, scoring the winning point. Michael Boylan was also on this team. These victories catapulted the club into one of the greatest years in the club's history 1983, when among many other titles the first County senior title victory in 67 years was achieved.   

Below is the front page of the original notes outlining the rules of the competition in addition to a newspaper report covering the evet...
