Midleton Hurling and Football, Ladies Football and Camogie Club News - March 9

09 March, 2023


Our senior hurlers returned to action on Saturday when they hosted Bishopstown in the opening game of their RedFM County Senior Hurling League Division 2 campaign at a resplendent Clonmult Memorial Park (well done to everyone who helped to have it looking so well on the day).

Fielding a very young side we opened the scoring through Cormac Beausang before Bishopstown scored 1-2 to lead 1-2 to 0-1 after just four minutes.  

Points from Ross O'Regan, Cormac Beausang (3 - one from play), Paul Haughney and Sean O'Leary Hayes from 100 yards had the sides level - 1-4 to 0-7 - after 18 minutes.  

Bishopstown were 1-8 to 0-8 ahead when they received a straight red card on 27 minutes.  

Bishopstown led by two at the break on a scoreline of 1-9 to 0-10.

Points from Sam Quirke and three from Cormac Beausang (one from play) had the sides level again (0-14 to 1-11) after seven minutes of the second-half.  

Shortly after a lovel point by Sam Quirke put Midleton into the lead for the first time since the first minute.  

Points from Beausang (2), another monster effort from Sean O'Leary Hayes and Paul Haughney had Midleton 0-19 to 1-13 ahead with ten to play and looking like they might kick on for an opening day triumph. 

But Bishopstown were a tough nut to crack and we led by 0-21 to 1-15 with three minutes to play when Midleton goalkeeper Bryan Rossiter made an outstanding save to deny Bishopstown a certain goal which could have turned the game in the city men's favour. 

Bishopstown were reduced to 13 in injury time when their full back got a second yellow card and Cormac Beausang sealed the win for Midleton with two late frees.  

Final score: Midleton 0-22 Bishopstown 1-17

Next up is an away game in Ballinspittle against Courcey Rovers at 11.30am on St. Patrick's Day.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Pa White who received a nasty hand injury in this game.

Scorers: Midleton: Cormac Beausang 0-12 (0-8 frees), Paul Haughney, Sam Quirke and Sean O'Leary Hayes 0-2 each, Ross O'Regan, Kian Farmer, Sean O'Sullivan and Aaron Mulcahy 0-1 each.  

MIDLETON: Bryan Rossiter, Cian Murray, Christian Murphy, Séadnaidh Smyth, Eoin Moloney, Sean O’Leary Hayes, Sean O’Sullivan, Paul Haughney, Sam Quirke, Ross O’Regan, Pa White, Kian Farmer, Cormac Beausang, Aaron Mulcahy, Paul Connaughton. Subs used: Rory Hartnett for White (inj); Darragh McCarthy for Murray, Adam Daly for Mulcahy. Also on the panel: Cillian Hurley, Cormac O’Brien, Adam Faye, Leo Hennessy and Evan McCarthy.  



Our intermediates were on the road on Sunday morning when they travelled to Clouhduv to take on the home team. After an even enough first half it was the home side who led by five at midway point on a score of 1-8 to 0-6

We put up a brilliant effort in the secon-half but we just couldn't find the goal we needed and at the final whistle we lost out by a goal on a scoreline of 1-11 to 0-11.

MIDLETON: Cillian Hurley, Cathal Gunning, Christian Murphy, Cormac O'Brien, Leo Hennessy, Adam Faye, Evan McCarthy, Padraig O'Keeffe, Alan Power, Rory Hartnett, Darragh McCarthy, Cathal Beausang, Padraig O'Brien, Gary Carroll, Paul Conaughton.

Their next game is at home on Saturday week, March 18, to Argideen Rangers at 3pm in Clonmult Memorial Park.



Our Junior A hurlers made their first East Cork Division 2 league appearance on Tuesday night when they travelled to Killeagh to take on the home side. 

This was a good workout for the lads, a couple of whom were making their first outing at adult level which is always great to see.

A brace of first-half goals from Christian Daly had us 2-6 to 0-6 in front at half-time and even though Killeagh threw everything at us in the second period we held out for a deserving six point win on a final scoreline of:  Midleton 2-15 Killeagh 1-12.

Our next league fixture is on Sunday week, March 19th at 11.30am against St Catherines in Clonmult Memorial Park.

MIDLETON: Zach Smyth, Colin Sunderland, Alwyn Kearney, Kieran Lambert, Charlie Walsh, Aidan Ryan, Evan McCarthy, Alan Power, Leo Hennessy (0-2, 1f), Evan Rowlands, Adam Faye, Christian Daly (2-3, 0-1f), Mark O'Keeffe (0-3), Johnny Comer (0-2), Conor Fitzgerald (0-5, 3f). Subs used: Cathal Beausang, Darragh Higgins, Harry Wall, Nicky Daly Hayes.



An excellent second-half display saw us come away with the points in Rathcormac against a youthful Bride Rovers team on Sunday in the opening round of the East Cork Division 4 league. It was a great effort by all 20 players.

Our next Division 4 fixture will be against Dungourney on Sunday, March 19 at 3.15pm in Clonmult Memorial Park.

Final score: Bride Rovers 2-10 Midleton 1-18

MIDLETON: Colin Sunderland, Daire Mooney, Aaron Coughlan, Dan O'Sullivan, Fergus Wade, Dan Cagney, Luke Deane (C), Patrick Kane, Tim O'Sullivan (0-12, 8f, 1 65), Gavin Hurley, Harry Wall (0-1), Liam Kelly, Nicky Daly Hayes (0-4), Ben O'Neill (1-0), James Condon. Subs used: James O'Sullivan, Brendan Ferriter, Rory Lester, Jack McKay, Coleman Quinn.



Fé18 Division 1 Football League: Midleton 0-9 Carrigtwohill 2-14

A tough hour of football against our near neighbour away. We led by a point at half-time but we had to give way in the second thirty minutes. The advantage in physicality was a factor as we fielded a very young team.  

Credit to the lads for a brave and gutsy performance. Evan McGrath, Rory Lester and Sean Cronin led by example, while Odhran Rabbitte a late call for goalie, Sean McSharry, Paddy Walsh, Odhran Dennigen and Callum Mc Sweeney all had fine outings. 

Fé18 P1 Hurling League: Midleton 2- 12 Ballincollig 0-16
Park South was the venue for this lively encounter. Ballincollig dominated the first 20 minutes but we managed to hang in there, a goal apiece from Sean Cronin and Paddy Walsh saw us improve.

Zach Smith made some fine saves plus points from Daniel Garde and Daragh Egan saw us all square at halftime. Dara Scanlon had to leave the action with an injury, this was a big loss as he was dominating at centre-back.  

Evan McGrath, Thomas Dunlea, Cian Lambe,  Yohannis Mehigan and Adam O'Connor all performed really well but this was a team effort and the lads deserve great credit for coming away with a two-point victory.  


Our two junior football teams are in action this coming weekend.

On Saturday our Divison 3 team are at home to Lisgoold at 4pm and then on Sunday our A team (Divison 2) host Glenbower Rovers in Midleton at 2.30pm. 

Best of luck to both teams.

Our lads travelled to Blarney on Saturday last for a Hurling Challenge game against Blarney U-11s.

This was our first game of the season for this Group.

We played with three Teams of nine for this and each team did very well in all the games getting some great scores throughout each of the games.

We would like to thank Blarney U11s for inviting us to play them and we hope to meet them again sometime soon.

On Saturday last our U14 girls played a very entertaining challenge game against Youghal in Park South. This was a great opportunity for our new players who have moved on from U12 to play on a full-sized pitch. Well done to all girls who played extremely well. Our league campaign starts this weekend with a home game to Cobh. 



Our U16 girls travelled to Glanmire for their first league fixture of the year. A tough encounter but the girls gave their best from the opening minutes. Some of the U15 girls on this team are also busy preparing for Feile at the end of the month. 



This year’s U21 championship is a knockout competition. On Sunday last our ladies travelled to Bantry. This was their first outing of the year and it was a very close game. At half time Midleton were one point ahead. Both teams got some great scores in the second half. Bantry extended their lead but Midleton kept digging in and the full-time score ended in a draw Midleton 1-11 to Bantry 3-05. As it is a knockout competition there had to be a winner on the day. Extra time had to be played. Unfortunately, things did not go our way and the final score ended Midleton 3-11 to Bantry 5-11. Well done to everyone who played their part on the day. Captain on the day was Sadhbh Beausang.
