Midleton Hurling and Football, Ladies Football and Camogie Club News - June 15

15 June, 2023




Mallow was the venue on a beautiful Sunday morning last for our second last County Hurling League Division 2 game of the campaign.

The early exchanges were keenly contested and Mallow led by 0-3 to 0-2 after seven minutes. Put four points in a row from Kian Farmer, Aaron Mulcahy and Pa White (2) had us 0-6 to 0-3 up on nine minutes. The opening goal of the game came in the 12th minute when Paul Connaughton set up Luke O'Farrell for the green flag. Paul Connaughton (2) and Pa White pushed us 1-10 to 0-4 ahead by the 21st minute.

Aaron Mulcahy and Paul Connaughton added further points before Luke O'Farrell set up Paul Connaughton for our second goal. Further points from Luke, Pa and Paul had us 2-15 to 0-9 in front before Paul Connaughton added a goal and a point in first-half stoppage time to see us lead by 3-16 to 0-9 at the interval. 

We continued where we left off in the second-half and points from Aaron Mulcahy, Kian Farmer, Rory Hartnett, Paul Connaughton, Cormac Beausang (two frees), Pa White and Ross O'Regan had us 3-24 to 0-12 in front with 12 minutes to play. 

Mallow added their only goal soon after before Ross O'Regan struck for our fourth. Two further points for Pa White finished the scoring in what was a decisive and well deserved victory (4-24 from play). 

We wish the Mallow player that picked up a nasty looking freak injury (running for the ball) the very best in his recovery.

We complete our league campaign on Friday week (June 23) at home to Fermoy in Clonmult Memorial Park at 7.30pm.

Scorers: Paul Connaughton 2-6, Pa White 0-8, Kian Farmer 0-4, Luke O'Farrell and Ross O'Regan 1-1 each, Aaron Mulcahy 0-3, Cormac Beausang 0-2 (Frees), Rory Hartnett 0-1.

MIDLETON: Bryan Rossiter, Christian Murphy, Luke Dineen, Seannaidh Smyth, Eoin Moloney, Ciarmhac Smyth, Tadhg O'Leary Hayes, Coramc Beausang, Kian Farmer, Rory Hartnett, Ross O'Regan, Aaron Mulcahy, Paul Connaughton, Luke O'Farrell, Pa White.

The County Hurling League Division 2 table with one round of games to play:




We travelled to Ballygiblin on Friday night for our penultimate league game and we made the journey home with all the points after a fine display. Our final league game is on Sunday week, June 25 against Castlemartyr in Lisgoold at 2pm.

The very best of luck to Johnny Comer and all his players and management team as they begin their East Cork Junior A Football Championship campaign against Youghal in Killeagh on Sunday morning at 11.30am. Please support the Magpies. 




A hugely important league game on Monday evening last in front of a fine attendance at Clonmult Memorial Park.

It was a game that had everything but unfortunately we fell short at the end. In a very open game we led at half time by 1-8 to 0-9. Cloyne found goals a bit too easy to get in the second half and it was this that got them over the line.

We have now completed our league programme. We are sitting second currently but are waiting on the result of Castlemartyr's game with Watergrasshill. If Castlemartyr avoid defeat we will remain in Division 2 next year.

MIDLETON: Zach Smith, Cathal Gunning, Adam Fay, Kieran Lambert, Evan McGrath, Patrik Kane, Niall Lang (0-1), Leo Hennessy (0-6, 2f, 3 65), Daire Mooney, Evan Rowlands, Padraig O'Brien (0-2), Johnny Comer (0-1), Mark O'Keeffe (0-6f), Brian O'Sullivan (1-1), Tim O'Sullivan (1-1). Subs: Andy Rea (0-1), Ben O'Neill.




On Friday night we welcomed Killeagh to Clonmult Memorial Park. It was a good game with the away team coming away with the points.

We now face Dungourney in the league final. This will be played on the weekend of Sunday the 25th of June. Venue and time to be confirmed.

MIDLETON: Brian O'Sullivan, Rory Lester (0-1), Gavin Hurley, Kieran Lambert, Brendan Ferriter, Patrik Kane, Colin Sunderland, Daire Mooney (0-1), Niall Lang (1-1), Jack Fitzgerald, Evan Rowlands (0-4), Ben O'Neill, Andy Rea (2-1), Nicky Daly Hayes (0-2, 1f), Ben O'Neill (0-1). Subs: Fergus Wade (0-1), Jerome Curtin.



Hard luck to Barry Fitzgerald and Kieran Denihan and the Cork Masters Football team that narrowly lost out to Kerry in Fossa on Saturday. For those wondering, Kieran did line out in the red of Cork against his native county and lived to tell the tale.... 




An early start for our lads last Saturday as we travelled to Cashel, who togged out in Tipperary jerseys, for a challenge game. We travelled with 26 players and fielded three teams. It was an extremely competitive morning's hurling and a first time playing outside of the county for our lads.

We played very well and the lads displayed great skill and heart in all the games. Thank you to Cashel for their hospitality on the morning and we look forward to many more games with them over the years.




Midleton 4-11 Bishopstown 2-2

The boys have finished top of the group and are awaiting details on Group 4 cup final. Well done lads.



Midleton 6-11 Blarney 1-5

A fantastic evening's hurling, in a glorious Ballinlough, saw the Fé13s take the Spring League Group 1 shield.

The boys started well and had a comfortable 3-6 to 1-2 lead at half-time.

Blarney gave it their all on the resumption but the lads were up to the task and came away with a well deserved win.

Well done all involved.




Once again the past week was one that allowed the panel of players to catch their breath as our Hurling Championship fixtures began.

The players made the trip to Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Thursday night to play on the 4G pitch against a strong Blackrock team who had beaten us in the league earlier in the season, so we knew a tough game was to be expected.

The game reflected the expectations as the lads found themselves down by a point after 15 minutes, but as they have done so throughout the year the players continued to play with and for each other over the course of the game, and with some excellent display of both defensive skills along with our forwards ability to take the scoring opportunities that arose we continue to a semi-final in the coming weeks. We would like to thank Ross O’Regan from the Senior Team who was in attendance to offer some words of advice and encouragement to the players during and after the game.

MIDLETON PANEL: Alfie Hennessy, Braden Dunlea, Breaninn O'Dalaigh, Charlie McCarthy, Cian Hogan; Ciaran Kelly, Ciaran O’Brien, Daniel Moloney, Daire Crowley, Donncha Butler, Ethan Foley, Finn Cahill, Jack Cahill, John O’Sullivan, Josh Quill, Liam Walsh, Manus Stewart, Patrick O’Brien,  Peadar Egan, Rian McCormack, Rory Nolan, Will Stokes.

The schedule of games continues for the panel with our focus now returning to football with the first team scheduled to play Beara, in the next round of the Championship this Friday with a venue to be confirmed. We are awaiting details of the second team's Shield Competition semi-final against Bishopstown and will share fixture details as soon as they are available to us.

The Midleton minors were in league action on Saturday night in Clonmult Memorial Park and it was great to have club seniors Eoin Moloney and Sam Quirke on hand with plenty advice and encouragement. Midleton came out on top on the night with a final score of Midleton 2-24 Iniscarra 0-12 in what was a great team effort and a great display of scoring from play (2-20 of total). #MagpiesAbú



A great win for Midleton's minor footballers in Caherlag on Wednesday evening in the league overcoming neighbours Erin's Own by a score of 1-11 to 1-4 despite two black cards and playing for 20 minutes with 14 players on what was a great evening for football

The lads dug deep and got the result across the line. They are out again on Monday against Iniscarra in Park South at 7pm.



We'd like to wish a speedy recovery to Fé17 selector and Club Coaching Officer, Martin McSweeney. Hope to see you back in action really soon Martin.

Bright and early on Sunday morning, in muggy conditions, the U-11s lined up to play against Douglas. Two teams and two matches saw a fine display of camogie. Lovely to hear the words of encouragement amongst the girls as they played with heart and determination, putting all their training into practice. Thank you to all the coaches and to Douglas for travelling. 


Our U-12 Black team hosted Sars in a league game on June 3. Sars started very quickly and got two early goals. The girls to their credit gathered themselves and got right back into the game with some lovely scores both from play and from frees. In the end it wasn’t our day and Sars came out on top. The girls will have learned an awful lot from this game. Next up is an away fixture Vs Iniscarra.


Congratulations Gabrielle, Ciara and Leah who were part of the Cork U14 development squads playing against Wexford in Youghal GAA last Saturday. Well done girls.




Well done to our U-11 girls who played a great game against Watergrasshill on Tuesday evening in Clonmult Memorial Park.
