Midleton Hurling and Football, Ladies Football and Camogie Club News - April 27

27 April, 2023


One of our all-time great club people, Nealey Horgan of the Cork Road was remembered in style over the past week or so with in first ever staging of the Nealey Horgan Football Street Leagues with the Fé11 boys and girls taking part over two nights in Park South before the final group games and the final were held, in front of a huge crowd, at Clonmult Memorial Park on Saturday morning. 

Nealey was a brilliant GAA man and a fanatical Midleton man and I know he would have been absolutely thrilled with this gesture as were his wife and family members who were there in big numbers on the day of the finals and loved the experience and that Nealey was remembered so fondly. 

A huge well done to all who took part and treated us all to some brilliant football....the future for Midleton football is definitely bright. 

Of course a massive well done too to the many many organsiers, far too many to mention, but fair play to you all and thanks for your hard work and dedication to making this such a successful event.

A big thank you to Andrew Foley who always goes above and beyond the call of duty in terms of his photography. Above is a few but the full collection can be viewed at the link below.



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



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




Our Junior A footballers were back in league action on Saturday night in Park South against the unbeaten Erins Own.

We got off to a flyer with points from Johnny Comer, Cathal Gunning and Aaron Mulcahy from play to give us a 0-3 to 0-0 lead on ten minutes. Two Erins Own frees brought them back into the game before points from Luke Dineen and Johnny Comer gave us a 0-5 to 0-3 half-time lead.

The visitors started very brightly at the start of the second-half and five points in a row but them 0-8 to 0-5 with 15 minutes to play. The Magpies struck back when Johnny Comer finished a lovely team move to the net to tie the game. 

Erins Own added two points to retake the lead before Cathal Gunning responded. Erins Own made it a two-point game with time nearly out and then deep into stoppage time Aaron Mulcahy burst through the Erins Own cover but his blistering shot for goal just went over the bar and Erins Own breathed a sigh of relief as they held on for a one point win, but another good performance from our team against a strong Erins Own side.

MIDLETON: Adrian O'Donovan, Adam Faye, Darragh McCarthy, Cian Crowley, Luke Dineen, Sean O'Sullivan, Evan McCarthy, Eoin Moloney, Ross O'Regan, Cathal Gunning, Aaron Mulcahy, Alan Power, Padraig O'Brien, Johnny Comer, Adam Daly.   

We are back in action on May 9 away to St. Catherines. 



Our Junior C footballers took on Russell Rovers on Friday night at home with the visitors winning on a score of 1-8 to 0-3.



Congratulations to Carthaigh Cronin and the Cork minor players and management on their Munster MHC win over Limerick in Limerick on Tuesday night.

Our Under 6s are really enjoying their camogie training, having great fun and growing a great team spirit. Here they are singing “Up the Magpies” on Friday night in Park South. 


On Sunday morning, April 23, one of our Midleton U-11 teams played Sarsfields In Park South in their first game of Group 1 Round 1 Imokilly Go Games 2023. The girls put on a very impressive performance during both halves and showed great displays of strength, determination and skill. Well done girls! 


Our Under 15s had an early start on Saturday morning heading to Newtownshandrum for Grade A Féile. We were drawn with Ballinhassig, Sars and our hosts Newtownshandrum. We ended the day with two losses and a draw. Thanks so much to all who travelled to support the players. As always, the coaches couldn’t fault the players’ attitude and determination, but unfortunately as a group, we weren’t quite good enough. A special thanks to Castle Rock Homes for sponsoring nearly 50 sets of gear and bags for both teams and coaches.


The U-14s travelled to Kilworth on Saturday for Féile. The girls gave a great account of themselves in games against Kilworth and St. Fanahans but just lost out in both games, before finishing with a victory over Douglas. Well done Gabby who captained the girls for the day. The experience will stand to the girls who are all eligible to play in Féile again next year. Thanks to Kilworth for hosting a great day. 




We got our second win from two games in the Junior B league versus Banteer. After a very strong first-half performance we led 2-10 to 1-5 at the break. The goals coming from Saoirse Ni Theangana and Rebecca Cassidy. Sadhbh Beausang hit four points from play over the hour and Vivienne Gleeson scored seven points (4f’s). All in all, a very good team performance and we are in good shape now to qualify for the knockout stages of the league.

MIDLETON: Jill Connaughton, Ruthi Hennessy, Megan Kelly, Caoimhe Cronin, Aoife Fitzgerald, Laura Goulding, Leah Hogan, Hannah Power, Jodie Keegan O’Connell, Rachel Ryan, Rayanna Power, Jade Fitzgerald, Molly Beausang, Sadhbh Beausang, Lucy Wallis, Vivienne Gleeson Isabelle Nestor, Saoirse Ni Theangana, Muireann Ni Conchubhair, Roisin O’Callaghan, Rebecca Cassidy.




In a wet and dreary Clonmult Memorial Park our Junior C team ran out very comfortable winners against Dungourney on Saturday night. Midleton dominated from the start and once the scores started to flow it was very much one-way traffic. Overall, another great team performance and with two wins from three games we still have a chance of making the knockout stages. Jade Fitzgerald and Rachel Ryan had two goals each.

Laura Goulding, Rayanna Power and Jodie Keegan O’Connell had a goal each. Aoife Fitzgerald hit three points from 45s. Other points came from Rachel Ryan, Leah Hogan, Sorcha Cronin and Jodie Keegan O’Connell.

MIDLETON: Kate Griffin, Kate Saunderson, Sorcha Cronin Megan Kelly, Caoimhe Cronin, Aoife Fitzgerald, Laura Goulding, Leah Hogan, Jodie Keegan O’Connell, Rachel Ryan, Rayanna Power, Jade Fitzgerald, Muireann Ni Conchubhair, Roisin O’Callaghan, Lilly Kelly,



Congratulations to Aoibhinn Murphy who has been selected to play for Cork in the Camogie Primary Game on Sunday in Pairc Uí Chaoimh, during the Cork versus Waterford Munster Hurling Championship. Best of luck Aoibhinn.

Aoibhinn is pupil at Gaelscoil Mhainistir na Corann and they sent this best of luck message ahead of Sunday....

Ba mhaith linn gach rath a ghabháil le Aoibhinn Ní Mhurchú ó Gaelscoil Mhainistir na Corann a bheidh ag imirt le foireann Corcaigh sa Primary Game ag leath am sa cluiche idir Corcaigh agus Port Láirge ar an nDomhnach.Bain taitneamh as an lá Aoibhinn. We would like to wish Aoibhinn Murphy from Gaelscoil Mhainistir na Corann the best of luck representing her school in the primary game which will be played at half time in the game between Cork and Waterford next Sunday.




Well done to our Minor Ladies who dug deep to score 1:1 in the last 2 minutes to come away with a great win over Bride Rovers. Final score Midleton 4-.7 Bride Rovers 2-09.


Hard luck to our girls who were defeated in a very tight game on Monday last v Inch Rovers. They could not be faulted as everyone played their part, held their ground and played with determination. This is the first season playing in the ‘A’ league for a lot of our girls and this experience will stand to them in the coming months and years. They are a really great team and we as coaches are extremely proud of them. 

Congratulations to all our players, mentors, coordinators and referees on the fantastic occasion which saw the first very street league tournament take place. The last group games and the final took place on Saturday last in Clonmult which was attended by members of Nealey Horgan’s family.

Midleton 0-8 Inniscarra 4-6




The second match of the Group 4 hurling league was a home match v Sarsfields on Tuesday last in Park South. Unfortunately, this match did not go our way and the visiting team came out on top on a scoreline of Midleton 0-14 Sarsfields 3-20.

The latest round of the Fé15 Premier Group 3 football league saw the visit of Aghada to Clonmult Memorial Park on Sunday. The first-half was a close contest with scores hard to come by for the lads, despite playing with a slight breeze. However, an impressive finish to the back of the net by Alex Horgan midway through the first-half meant that there were only a couple of scores between the teams at half-time, Midleton 1-2 Aghada 0-7.

Turning to play against the breeze and without a number of players due to injury, the lads really showed what they are about with hard work all over the pitch delivering an impressive second-half display. Goals from Senan Carroll, Michael Allegrini (2) and Darragh Mullins capped off an impressive team performance with the final score Midleton 5-7 Aghada 2-9.

Scorers: Michael Allegrini (2-0), Alex Horgan (1-1), Darragh Mullins (1-1), Senan Carroll (1-1), Ewan Murphy (0-2), Cian Lawton (0-1), Dara Birdthistle (0-1). MIDLETON: Sean Gregory, Dara Cahill, Bradley O’Brien, Jason Morley, Patrick O’Dowd, Shane O’Mahony, Jack Walsh, Senan Carroll, Dara Birdthistle (captain), Darragh Mullins, Max Murphy, Ruairi O’Riordan, Alex Horgan, Cian Lawton, Ewan Murphy, Fionn Bohan, Michael Allegrini, Patrick Collins.

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.

Thanks to the research conducted by Vincent O'Neill over the last 12 months the grave of James Power, the Captain of the Midleton/Cork team that won Cork's first football All-Ireland title was located in St. Finbarr's cemetery Cork (very close to the Republican Plot just inside the main gate of the cemetery).

James Power. originally from Shanballymore in North Cork came to Midleton (along with his younger brother Bob) to train in the drapery business, almost certainly at Cogan's Woollen Mills (based in Ballincurrig) and their drapery shop on Midleton Main Street. James Power and his brother Denis were pillars of Cork GAA and Cork athletics throughout their lives and were instrumental in the purchase and opening of the original Cork Athletic grounds in the early 1900s.

James and Bob later opened their own drapery shop in Winthrop Street Cork, (approximately where McDonalds is now located). This shop was badly damaged in the burning of Cork City by the Black and Tans (not the All Blacks) in December 1920. Over recent months, with the assistance of John Arnold Bride Rovers, discussions were had with the family of James Power and following the renovation of the Power grave by the family, it is great to see the achievements of James Power immortalised on the headstone.



With unprecedented rainfall this spring our pitches are under pressure so please check if our pitches are open before you train or play a match.         

We are asking all players, mentors, parents, supporters and neighbours to please play their part by playing ball on the following.....
Please slow down entering and leaving Park South.
No dogs, except assistance dogs, are allowed at Park South or Clonmult Memorial Park.
Please do not bring single-use plastic bottles to either Park South or Clonmult Memorial Park.
Please put your rubbish in a bin or bag and please bring your gear home with you.
And always be aware of the open water surrounding the pitches in Park South.
If you are a coach, please pass on these simple messages to players and parents.
All members are asked to respect referees and their officials at all times.
Also if you are a coach, last person out locks the gate, toilet and container.



All at Midleton GAA would like to extend our sympathies to Pat, Cillian, Mairead and Ciara and all the Hurley family on the death of Nora Hurley, Castlelyons who died at the weekend. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam. 

We would like to send our deepest condolences to our county winning coach Ben O'Connor at the death of his grandmother, Mary O'Mahony of Newtownshandrum. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.
