Midleton Hurling and Football, Ladies Football and Camogie Club News - May 4

04 May, 2023


Pride of place this week goes to wishing the very best of luck to our own Jill Connaughton (goalkeeper) and Jerry Wallace (Manager) and all the Cork camogie minor team and management ahead of this Sunday's All-Ireland final against Waterford at 4.30pm in Nowlan Park, Kilkenny.

If you can't make it to Kilkenny you can stream the game for free at Electric Ireland - YouTube

Here was Jill (far left) this week at training with Lucy O’Connell (Blarney), Caoimhe O’Donoghue (Bishopstown) and Sarah Murphy (Glen Rovers). 



Last Saturday afternoon our U-10s played round two of the Imokilly Go Games. We hosted Sarsfields and Erin’s Own. Thanks to all for travelling. The girls played three matches where all their impressive skills were on display. Well done girls.


Our U-12s fielded two teams recent league grading games.

Midleton U-12 “White” played away to Aghabullogue in Coachford. Each of the girls showed great heart and determination from start to the final whistle. Great hooking and blocking throughout the match by all the girls! 

Midleton U-12 “Black” got their initial league fixture off to a flying start in a home game versus Kilworth.
Our girls dominated in all areas of the pitch and some beautiful hurling was on display. There were some great passages of play working the ball around leading to some very good scores. 



Our U-14’s travelled to Ballynoe for their second league match versus St. Catherines. Our girls put on a fantastic performance and came away with the win. Next up is Eire Óg in two weeks time.
Congratulations to Aoise (pictured below) who was excellent as captain and led the U-14s to a great victory.



Our Minor team met with Blackrock and came away with the win on a final scoreline of 2-5 to 2-4. Well done girls. We now qualify for Knockout stages.



Our Junior C team are playing a league match versus Grenagh in Midleton on Friday 5th of May at 7:30pm. 



Huge congratulations to Sarah Goulding, Gabrielle Smith, Leah Griffin and Ciara Hynes on being selected on the Cork Camogie U-14 Development squad for 2023. This is a huge achievement to have four girls selected from this club. Congratulations to the girls themselves who have put in such hard work and also to their coaches. 





Our senior hurlers were in action on Tuesday night as we welcomed East Cork neighbours Bride Rovers to Clonmult Memorial Park on a perfect evening for hurling on a beautiful playing surface.

The early exchanges were fairly even and points from Alex Quirke, Pa White, Luke O'Farrell and Aaron Mulcahy gave us a 0-4 to 0-3 lead after ten minutes. 

Points from Ross O'Regan (2), Aaron Mulcahy and Mikey Finn put us 0-8 to 0-4 ahead on 16 minutes. Two Bride Rovers points cut the gap before we struck for the game's opening goal. 

A lovely pass from Sam Quirke set up Pa White for a fine goal to put us 1-8 to 0-6 in front after 22 minutes. 

A point by Ross O'Regan and three pointed frees from Cormac Beausang saw us lead by 1-12 to 0-7 at the halfway stage. 

Cormac Beausang hit the first four points of the second-half, one from play, to see us lead by 1-16 to 0-8 ten minutes after the restart. 

Bride Rovers tried to get back in the game by going for goals at every chance but Brian Rossiter was well up to the task. 

With time running out Ross O'Regan got our second goal to take his personal tally on the night to an impressive 1-5 and at the final whistle soon after we ran out comfortable winners after a good display on a score of 2-20 to 0-11.

Next up is an away league game against Ballincollig on Sunday week, May 14 at 3pm.

This is how our league table looks after our win over Bride Rovers.


SCORERS: Ross O'Regan 1-5, Cormac Beausang 0-8 (0-7F), Pa White 1-1, Aaron Mulcahy 0-3 (0-1F), Alex Quirke, Luke O'Farrell and Mikey Finn 0-1 each.

Well done to Brion, David, Mikey, Ciarmhac, Alex, Terence and all the Cork U-20 players and management on their win over Limerick in the Gaelic Grounds on Friday night on a sore of 1-19 to 0-21. They will play Tipperary or Clare in the Munster Final on Monday, May 15.

The very best of luck to Carthaigh Cronin and the Cork minor players and management ahead of their Munster MHC final against Clare on Tuesday night next.  

Well done to Conor, Tommy (pictured below), Cormac, Sam and all the Cork senior hurling players and management on their win by 0-27 to 0-18 against Waterford in their Munster SHC opener in Pairc Uí Chaoimh on Sunday and best of luck in their second game which takes place on Saturday night next, again in Pairc Uí Chaoimh, at 7pm.

The Fé10 boys welcomed Abbeyside GAA Club for a hurling challenge match on Sunday last, with some fantastic hurling on display from both sides. Players and coaches from both sides then enjoyed some refreshments at the GAA Club – thanks to all the parents involved for helping out with the providing and serving of the food for everyone on the day.

In full voice the Fé10 boys then excitedly boarded the bus as they made their way to Páirc Uí Chaoímh (see below) for the Cork v Waterford Munster championship match. They were all delighted with the result on the day – especially cheering on all the Midleton lads throughout the game. Thanks to all the coaches for their help in making this day a day to remember for the Fé10 boys.




Our Fé11s were in action on Saturday last in Kiely Park in Glanmire playing against Sars.

We fielded three teams of eleven for this and each team showed great skill and determination. 

We would like to thank Sars' U-11s for hosting us and we look forward to playing them again in the near future.




We welcomed Kilmacud Crokes Under 12 team to Park South Sun morning where we had four competitive matches winning two and losing two narrowly. A great morning's hurling on view and their coaches were very complimentary of how everything went and to top it off our chairman John Fenton (pictured below) shared some wise words with their up and coming stars.


A very busy week for the Fé13s this week trying to catch up on postponed games from March and early April. 
Thanks to all parents for their time and efforts to get the lads to games. 

Group 2 football v Ballycastle Gaels away in Castletownroche

Group 4 hurling v Carrigaline away in Carrigaline

Midleton 6-17 Carrigaline  3-7

Group 1 hurling v Sarsfields at home in Park South

The Fé14 panel recently completed the latest round of Football League Fixtures with two competitive games against Carrigaline and St. Michael’s.
There was fantastic displays of teamwork, support and skills shown by the players across both games.
 We were extremely unfortunate to lose by a single point against St. Michael’s with the result in the balance right up to the final whistle.
While the result against Carrigaline might have been clearer prior to the end of the game, nonetheless it was encouraging to see the effort that was on display from all throughout the game which continues to show how determined this group of players are to work, support and play for each other at all times. Panels were:

Carrigaline Game: Aaron Murphy, Sebastian Mowinski, Donncha Butler, Finn Murray, Robin O’Brien, Patrick O’Brien, Patrick Spelman, Daire Crowley, Ethan Foley, Billy Murphy, Jack Sweeney, Rohan Fitzsimmons, Daniel Moloney, Adam Groarke, Charlie Cahill, Daniel O’Connell, Rory Nolan, Aidan O’Regan
St. Michael’s Game: Peadar Egan, Finn Cahill, Jack Cahill, Alfie Hennessy, Breanainn O’Dalaigh, Braden Dunlea, Patrick Spelman, Rian McCormack, Rory Nolan, Jack Sweeney, Josh Quill, Daniel Moloney, John Sullivan, Adam Groarke, Charlie Cahill, Manus Stewart, Patrick O’Brien.



The third match of the Group 4 hurling league was an away trip v Nemo Rangers on Thursday. This was a close match with the teams level at half time, Nemo 0-7 to Midleton 1-4, the goal coming from Patrick O’Dowd. Despite a Scott Dunlea goal early in the second half, it was the home team who came away with the victory in the end on a scoreline of Nemo Rangers 3-10 Midleton 2-9. The panel for the match was: Michael Allegrini, Patrick Collins, Fionn Bohan, Adam Spillane, Ewan Murphy, Jason Morley, John Quill, Riain McCormack, Breanainn O’Dalaigh, Ruairi O’Riordan, Patrick O’Dowd, Dara Birdthistle, Alex Horgan, Sean Gregory (Captain), Jack Walsh, Scott Dunlea. 



The qualifying rounds of the eagerly awaited hurling Feile competition took place in Killeagh on Saturday with the Midleton Fé15 lads placed in a group with Killeagh, Sarsfields and Carrigtwohill.

Our first match of the competition was a 10.30am throw in against the hosts Killeagh. Recent encounters between these two teams have been close so the lads knew that it would take a big effort to earn the victory. The first half followed the recent pattern with only two points between them at half-time thanks to some fantastic defending and hard work all over the pitch from the lads. A goal from John O’Sullivan midway through the second-half put some distance between the teams and the lads held out to register the win. Final score: Killeagh 0-5 Midleton 1-8.

The second match pitted the lads against Sarsfields, who had lost their opening match. Despite a well taken goal in the first half from Liam Walsh, the lads found themselves a goal down at half time and facing an uphill task. As so it proved in the second half as Sarsfields pulled away to win on a scoreline of Midleton 1-7 Sarsfields 3-10.

The final match of the day was a local derby match against Carrigtwohill. The lads really lifted themselves after the defeat to Sarsfields and went in a point ahead at half time; Midleton 0-6 Carrigtwohill 0-5. A tight second half followed but despite a massive effort from all involved the lads unfortunately came up one point short; final score Midleton 0-8 Carrigtwohill 0-9.

Well done to the entire panel who competed very well in a difficult group and are showing signs of continual improvement – onwards and upwards hopefully. Congratulations to Carrigtwohill who went on to win the Féile competition on Bank Holiday Monday. Thanks to Killeagh for hosting and for their hospitality on the day.

MIDLETON PANEL: Michael Allegrini, Jason Morley, Ciarán Kelly, Fionn Bohan, Riain McCormack, Cian Lawton (captain), Finn Cahill, Scott Dunlea, Dara Birdthistle, Patrick O’Dowd, Senan Carroll, Liam Walsh, John O’Sullivan, Shane O’Mahony, Darragh Mullins, Ciarán O’Brien, Sean Gregory, Ruairi O’Riordan, Jack Walsh, Ewan Murphy, Patrick Collins, Bradley O’Brien, Alex Horgan, Dara Cahill, Adam Spillane, James Carey, Max Murphy, Harry Waterman, Cuan Twomey, Rian Casey.

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.

Everyone at Midleton GAA would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Walsh and Barry families and all in Killeagh GAA Club at the very sad death of Brendan Walsh. As well as playing against Midleton teams for many years, Brendan was also a fine singer and was a regular contestant in our Tops of the Town competition and he was always a welcome visitor to our club. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
