Midleton Hurling and Football, Ladies Football and Camogie Club News - April 20

20 April, 2023




Aaron Mulcahy about to hit over one of his points against Glen Rovers on Sunday last. He also got the equalising goal deep into stoppage time.

Our senior team made the journey to Blackpool on Sunday for their fourth league game and a repeat of the 2021 County Final and the fine attendance that made the journey were treated to a very enjoyable game that went all they way to the wire, the 64th minute in fact. 

We got off to a slow start and trailed by 0-5 to 0-0 by the tenth minute. 

Points from Aaron Mulcahy (3) Kian Farmer, Luke O'Farrell and Tadhg O'Leary Hayes brought us right back into it and with four minutes of the opening half to play we trailed by a single point, 0-7 to 0-6. Kian Farmer and Aaron Mulcahy completed our first-half scoring and at the interval we trailed on a score of 0-10 to 0-8.

We came out of the blocks like a train at the start of the second-half as we rattled off four points in a row inside the first five minutes, two each for Luke O'Farrell and Kian Farmer to put us into the lead for the first time in the game. 

Back came the Glen and by the 13th minute of the second-half they led by three, 0-16 to 0-13. 

Sean O'Sullivan replied with the score of the game off the left-hand touchline and Aaron Mulcahy added a free to cut the gap to one with 12 to play.  

The Glen led by two with four minutes to go when Midleton were reduced to 14 when Christian Murphy received what looked like a rather harsh second yellow card, followed by red.

A hotly contested Glen '65 on 62 minutes pushed them 0-20 to 0-17 in front and set for victory but this Midleton team refused to throw in the towel and in the 64th minute a great Magpies' move saw Luke O'Farrell set up Aaron Mulcahy to bag the only goal of the game and secure a well deserved share of the spoils for the men in Black and White. 

It would be remiss of me not to make a special mention of David Scanlon and Alex Quirke who both had really good games in their first games back after long injury layoffs. Well done lads. 

Scorers: Aaron Mulcahy 1-8 (0-7 f), Kian Farmer 0-4, Luke O’Farrell 0-3, Tadhg O’Leary-Hayes, Sean O’Sullivan 0-1 each.

MIDLETON: Bryan Rossiter; David Scanlon, Luke Dineen, Seadhnaidh Smyth; Eoin Moloney, Ciarmhac Smyth, Christian Murphy; Sean O’Sullivan, Kian Farmer; Aaron Mulcahy, Ross O’Regan, Tadhg O’Leary-Hayes; Alex Quirke, Luke O’Farrell, Cian Crowley. Sub: Evan McCarthy for Cian Crowley.

Our next game is on Tuesday week, May 2, at home to Bride Rovers in Clonmult Memorial Park at 7.30pm.



On Friday evening we travelled to Waterfgrasshill for our latest RedFM County Hurling League Division 5 game. 

At half-time we trailed by a goal, 1-8 to 0-8 and despite a brave effort we just came up short in the end on a final score of 2-16 to 1-4.

MIDLETON: Zach Smith, Cormac O'Brien, Christian Murphy, Adam Faye, Leo Hennessy, Aidan Ryan, Evan McCarthy, Padraig O'Keeffe, Gavin Reddy, Gary Carroll, James Nagle, Tadhg O'Leary Hayes, Padraig O'Brien, Peter Dowling, Kian Farmer.

Our next game is on Friday week, April 28, at home to Mayfield in Clonmult Memorial Park at 7.15pm.




On Monday evening on a splendid pitch at Clonmult Memorial Park we faced a dogged Watergrasshill team. This was a battle and the saying goals win games was key here. A brace in the first half had us up by 2-6 to 0-7 at half time. The second half continued in much the same vein but we did enough to hold out for the points.

Our next league outing is on Sunday, the 14th of May, at home to Aghada at 2pm.

MIDLETON: Cillian Hurley, Colin Sunderland, Charlie Walsh, Kieran Lambert, Gavin Reddy, Adam Fay, Patrik Kane, Conor Fitzgerald(0-2, 1f), Dara Scanlon, Padraig Nagle(0-1), Padraig O'Shea(0-5, 3f), Johnny Comer, Stuart O'Connor, Peter Dowling(2-0), Evan Rowlands(1-2).

Our U-9s were in action on Saturday in Caherlag, playing a blitz with Erin’s Own and Ballinhassig. With almost 30 players we fielded four teams on the first outing of the season with great skill and determination on display from all teams.


UNDER 10S    

Our U-10s were involved in the first Go Games of the season. Thanks to Erin’s Own GAA for hosting us. A great afternoon of camogie skills on display. Well done to all the girls. 



Our U-14s opened their league campaign with a home game against a strong Barr’s team on Saturday evening. It was a battling performance from our girls with the match finishing in a draw. Well done to Eve (pictured below) who captained the team. 



In the premier minor league we played away to Ballinora on Saturday. Unfortunately it was not our day with a score line of 3-5 to 1-6 to Ballinora. Hard luck girls but you gave it your all.


Best of luck to all the girls involved in Féile this weekend.




On Saturday morning last our young Magpies travelled to Cobh for a football  blitz against the host club and Kiltha Óg.It was an action packed morning, where we fielded three teams and each team played three games. Well done lads.

Our Fé11s welcomed Carrigtwohill to Clonmult Memorial Park on Saturday last for a local derby go games Football blitz.

 We had 30 players in attendance for this so we fielded three teams of ten of equal strength.

The lads were absolutely outstanding for the hour getting some great scores throughout each of their games.

It was great to see practice paying off for all the players so well done to all.

We would like to thank Carrigtwohill for making the short journey down to play us also.

We are now looking forward to the Football Street Leagues Finals on Saturday at 10am in the Club.

Finally best wishes to our Coach Podge Dunlea on a speedy recovery from his injury, no doubt we will see him back on the touchline soon enough.

Midleton GAA, LGFA & Camogie clubs are calling on our membership between the ages of 12 to 21 to take part in this new oral history project called GAA Generations. 

Rudyard Kipling said "If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten". 

All information needed is below but if you have any questions please contact Mairéad Beausang 087-2412010.

GAA Generations is a major new oral history project that will be built on conversations between young and old sections of our membership.

We are our stories, and we tell them while standing on the shoulders of those who came before us. Ireland boasts a rich tradition of passing our stories from one generation to the next. To honour that, and to capture a better understanding of what the GAA means to its members, the Association has launched a ‘GAA Generations’ oral research project. 

The idea is simple – we are inviting young GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association members aged 12-21 to record on their mobile phone a conversation with ‘One Good Adult’ in the 55+ age bracket that they look up to and admire. It could be, for example, a parent/grandparent, a coach, or a teacher, past or present, that saw and nurtured your potential. The older participants will also be given the opportunity to quiz their young interviewees on their GAA experiences and how it may have impacted their understanding of who they are.

The project aims to recruit between 500-1,000 young members (aged 12-21 years-old) who will receive online training in conducting a semi-structured interview with a person of influence in their life aged 55+. It aims to include the Irish diaspora’s perspective particularly through the club networks of north America and the UK.  The conversations with their selected ‘One Good Adult’ (aged 55+), recorded on a smart phone along with a photo of the participants, will be stored for prosperity and future research purposes on the GAA’s eLearning platform.

How to get involved?

GAA members aged 12-21 years (inclusive) who would like to participate in this research project, are requested to provide an expression of interest which can be found at:

Depending on the volume of applications received, it may not be possible to facilitate everyone due to the analysis of the data required. Parental consent is required for those under 18 to participate in the project and to complete the expression of interest form.

Participants under 18 will require parental consent to complete the expression of interest.



We have been asked to remind members and especially our club coaches that the GAA Learning Portal is a great resource which is free to use. Please check it out at



In the light of Tipperary hurler, Dillon Quirke's, untimely death during a club game last year and so many other such incidents in the GAA and other sports over the years, we have been offered the opportunity for AMS to bring a Cardiac Screening unit to our club to offer screening to our members. It's available for 14 year olds and up. It will cost €79 per person or it is free to people who have their Health Insurance with Laya Healthcare. The company needs a minimum of 25 people to carry out the screening. If you'd be interested please let me know at or at 087-4143094 and we can make arrangements.
