Midleton Hurling and Football, Ladies Football and Camogie Club News - March 30

30 March, 2023


Ger Glavin celebrating after Midleton's County Senior Hurling Final win over Blackrock in 1986.

All members and supporters of Midleton GAA woke to very sad news on Saturday morning last as we heard of the untimely death of one of our great players and friends, Ger Glavin.

Ger was a great player in the black and white of Midleton for many many years winning a whole host of medals, including a county intermediate hurling medal in 1978 (when he played alongside his brother Willie), three county senior hurling titles, two Munsters and an All-Ireland club. 

One has to point out the remarkable year that Ger enjoyed on the pitch in 1984. He captained Midleton to East Cork and County Junior Hurling titles, he was a key member of the Midleton team that won the county intermediate football title, he won a Cork County Senior Football title with Imokilly and also won an All-Ireland Junior Football medal with Cork. Some going. 

Ger transferred from Midleton to Ballincollig in the early 90s and also tasted county success with them. Ger was a hugely talented sportsman. From an excellent athlete in his younger days to an accomplished soccer player and so much more. 

Apart from all that and the first thing that everyone said about him this week was that he was a gentleman through and through and a very proud Midleton man and he will be sadly missed by all his former team-mates and all supporters of the Magpies. He also attended the first two meetings of the Monday Club in recent times although in poor health....the mark of the man.

Thanks to everyone who attended his removal and funeral and walked in his guard of honour in Ballincollig on Monday.

Our deepest sympathies go to his wife Siobhan, his children Marie, Anne and Brian, his sisters Kathleen, Margaret and Anne, his brother Willie and all his extended family and wide circle of friends. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

Hard luck to the Cork hurlers on their National Hurling League semi-final defeat to Kilkenny in Nowlan Park on Sunday last. Tommy (pictured above), Conor, Sam and Cormac were all part of the Cork panel. 

Well done to Midleton's Carthaigh Cronin who lined out at left corner-back for the Cork minor team in their Munster Championship opening round win over Waterford (3-19 to 0-15) on Tuesday night in Pairc Uí Chaoimh. Great stuff Carthaigh and best of luck for the rest of the competition. Next up for Carthaigh and Cork are Tipperary on this coming Tuesday night (April 4) in Pairc Uí Chaoimh at 7pm.    

The Cork U-20s had a very strong representation from Midleton on Wednesday night when they also got the better of Waterford in Pairc Uí Chaoimh on a final score of 1-17 to 1-13. Brion Saunderson (pictured below) was in goals, Mikey Finn was midfield, David Cremin came on as a sub and Ciarmhach Smyth and Alex Quirke are also on the panel. Terence McCarthy is a selector with this team and our county winning coach, Ben O'Connor, is the manager.

Last Monday we held our third “Monday Club” get together. We welcomed some new faces and we were delighted that Ger Fitzgerald was able to join us. Ger is the driving force behind the Monday Club.

We remembered our friend Ger Glavin who sadly passed away last weekend. Ger attended our first two monthly meetings and he was remembered fondly on Monday by all in attendance. A minute's silence was held and Ger Fitzgerald recounted Ger’s GAA career which in today's standards is remarkable. Ger will be missed at the Monday Club but will be fondly remembered.
