Our senior hurlers welcomed Mount Sion of Waterford to Clonmult Memorial Park on Monday for a very worthwhile challenge and at the end of the 60 minutes it was the visitors that came out on top.

Next up is a return to league action this coming Sunday (June 11) when we travel to Mallow for an 11.30am start. 



We continue our Intermediate hurling league campaign on this Friday night when we travel to Mitchelsown to take on Ballygiblin. Throw-in is 7.30pm.



This past weekend we brought our two Junior teams down to Waterford City for a bit of a bonding get-together. We set off by bus in the morning and it was great to see the guys in great spirits. But before we chilled out we had two very worthwhile challenge games against Ballygunner. A fantastic set-up down there and they laid on sandwiches and refreshments after the games which was greatly appreciated.

We have two fixtures in the coming days:

Friday 9th of June: Division 4 v Killeagh in Midleton (Clonmult Memorial Park) at 7.30pm

Monday 12th of June: Division 2 v Cloyne in Midleton (Clonmult Memorial Park) at 7.30pm




Last Wednesday night we travelled to Caherlag to play the home team. This game was very tight throughout.

At half time Erins Own lead 1-8 to 1-7. In the second-half we upped our performance and came away with a two-point win.

As a result we have now gained promotion to Division 3 next year and have qualified for the league final.

We do have one final league match to play which is this Friday, the 9th of June, against Killeagh. This game is on in Clonmult Memorial Park with a 7.30pm throw-in.

MIDLETON: Cillian Hurley, Rory Lester, Gavin Hurley, Kieran Lambert, Daire Mooney, Dan Cagney, Brendan Ferriter, Darragh Higgins, Luke Deane (0-1), Nicky Daly Hayes (0-5, 3f, 1 65), Dan O'Sullivan (0-1), Liam Kelly (0-3), Ben O'Neill (1-1), Brian O'Sullivan (0-3), Andy Rea. Subs used: Sean Corcoran (1-1), James O'Sullivan (0-2), Colin Sunderland, Jack McKay.




A busy few weeks for our lads. We travelled to Killeagh for a hurling match. The following Wednesday we hosted Fr. O’Neills for a great hour's hurling. As we moved on we hosted Cobh in football and last Saturday we travelled to Bride Rovers for a hurling game.

Congrats to Bríon, David, Mikey, Ciarmhac, Alex and Terrance on their All-Ireland U-20 win last Sunday. Up the Rebels.

The Fé14 P2 football team from last Friday night at Clonmult Memorial Park. 

It was a quieter schedule of games for the panel this week with the commencement of our Championship fixtures.

Over two perfect days the panel played football games against two good sides in Bishopstown and Glanmire, not for the lack of effort and some stylish skills on show there were contrasting results for both teams.

The first team will continue in the Cup Competition with a semi-final in two weeks against Beara, and the second team will play in their Shield Competition semi-final against either Bishopstown or Ballincollig, fixture details to be confirmed shortly.

The panels for the games were: Aaron Murphy, Adam Groarke,  Aidan O’Regan, Alex Molumby, Alfie Hennessy,  Billy Murphy, Braden Dunlea, Breaninn O'Dalaigh,  Charlie Cahill, Charlie McCarthy, Cian Hogan; Ciaran Kelly, Ciaran O’Brien, Daniel Moloney, Daniel O’Connell, Daire Crowley, Donncha Butler, Dylan McInerney, Eoghan Donovan, Ethan Foley, Finn Cahill, Finn Murray, Jack Cahill, Jack Sweeney, John O’Sullivan, Josh Quill, Liam Walsh, Manus Stewart, Patrick O’Brien, Patrick Spellman, Peadar Egan, Rian McCormack, Robin O’Brien, Rohan Fitzsimmons, Rory Nolan.

Our focus this week turns to our Hurling Championship with our first round game scheduled for Thursday evening against Blackrock on the 4G pitch of Pairc Ui Chaoimh with a 6.45pm throw-in.

A big well done to our nine Fé14s who represented Cork against Tipperary, Kilkenny and Waterford on Saturday in Thurles. They won one, drew one and lost one.

Back row: Braden Dunlea, Liam Walsh, Ciaran Kelly, Alfie Hennessy & Finn Cahill.

Front row: Ciaran O'Brien, John O'Sullivan, Rian McCormack & Peader Egan



The Midleton Fé17s had a  comprehensive victory over an understrength Fermoy side in the Division 1 football league on Wednesday evening in Clonmult Memorial Park on a fabulous evening for football. Well done lads.

We travelled to sunny Rathpeacon on Monday evening to take on the very strong challenge of Eire Og in our Junior B league Final. Unfortunately we came up against a very strong Eire Og team,  who were just that bit better than us in the physical as well as overall skills aspect of the game.

We started well and early points from Jodie Keegan O’Connell, Sadhbh Beausang and Rebecca Cassidy saw us race in to a three-point lead. Gradually though Eire Og started to exert control around midfield and half-backs and at the break we trailed 0-8 to 0-5. Despite this though the girls battled back well early in the second-half and reduced the deficit to just a point with scores from Sadhbh Beausang, Jodie Keegan O’Connell plus one from substitute Saoirse Ni Theangana.

We really needed a goal at this stage and the closest we came was a Vivienne Gleeson shot which was saved onto the post by the Eire Og netminder. Aoife Fitzgerald added her second point from a 45 but by now Eire Og were in control and ran out deserving winners.

All the girls can be very proud of their efforts and to reach the League final in the first year competing at this grade shows how much the group has progressed. Further improvement will be needed however as we now turn our focus to both the Junior C and Junior B Championships later in the summer, but as ever with this group we know they will continue to battle and there will certainly be plenty of great camogie to come from them in both championships.

MIDLETON: Jill Connaughton, Megan Kelly, Ruthi Hennessy, Leah Hogan, Molly Beausang, Aoife Fitzgerald (0-2), Muireann Ni Conchubhair, Lucy Wallis, Isabelle Nestor, Jodie Keegan O’Connell (0-2), Sadhbh Beausang (0-2), Laura Goulding, Rachel Ryan, Vivienne Gleeson (0-1f) Rebecca Cassidy (0-1), Kate Griffin, Saoirse Ni Theangana (0-1), Elle McManus, Emma O’Sullivan, Caoimhe Cronin, Sorcha Cronin, Rayanna Power, Jade Fitzgerald, Roisin O’Callaghan.

Everyone at Midleton GAA club would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Teddy McCarthy, all at Sarsfields & Glanmire GAA clubs and all Teddy's former Cork team-mates. He was a great dual star who will always be remembered as long as the games of hurling and football are played.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

He is pictured here celebrating with our own Kevin Hennessy after winning the 1990 All-Ireland hurling final, the first of his two senior All-Ireland wins that historic year. Of course he played with a host of Midleton players over the years in both codes.
