Midleton Hurling and Football, Ladies Football and Camogie Club News - June 22

22 June, 2023


Friday last was a great day for our club when Brion Saunderson and Mikey Finn accompanied by selector Terence McCarthy, juvenile chairman Michael Carroll, chairman John Fenton and vice Chairman of the Cork County board, Pat Horgan, brought the Munster and All Ireland winning U-20 trophies to St. Brigids, Ballintotis, the Gaelscoil, John the Baptist schools.

After the schools the cups were then brought into Midleton hospital where some of our former greats and other patients were delighted to see Brion, Mikey and the cups.

Both players were great ambassadors for the club throughout the day and hopefully the visits to the schools will inspire many more to follow in their footsteps.

Well done again too to David Cremin, Ciarmhac Smyth and Alex Quirke, who were unable to make it yesterday.

Mainister na Corann abú.

Midleton CBS and Educate Together were unable to fit us in on this day but hoepfully we will get to them both on another day.

Here's a selection of pics from the various schools. 





The Midleton Junior A footballers began their East Cork Championship campaign at a sunny and brilliantly appointed Killeagh venue on Sunday morning when they took on Youghal. 

We got off to a great start with early points from Mark Daly and Aaron Mulcahy to put us two up on six minutes. Two points from Youghal and one from our player/manager Johnny Comer had us 0-3 to 0-2 ahead before Aaron Mulcahy struck for the game's opening goal on 16 minutes to see us into a 1-3 to 0-2 before Johnny Comer made it a five point game a minute later. 

Points from Aaron Mulcahy and Cathal Gunning had us 1-6 to 1-2 in front on 23 minutes before Youghal finished the half strongly with the last three points of the period to leave us in front at the interval by a single point on a score of 1-6 to 1-5.

Youghal levelled in the third minute of the second-half before Even McGrath put us back in front three minutes later. 

In a low scoring battle of a second-half Youghal kicked the net three scores to take a 1-9 to 1-7 advantage with five minutes to play but we finished really well and points from Cormac Beausang, Christan Daly and Eoin Moloney saw us come out on top by a single point on a final score of 1-10 to 1-9.

Well done lads, a great start. 

The one downer on the day was the injury suffered by Aidan Ryan late on in the game. We wish Aidan a speedy recovery and hope to see him back in the Magpies colours as soon as possible.

Scorers: Aaron Mulcahy 1-2, Johnny Comer 0-2, Mark Daly, Cathal Gunning, Evan McGrath, Cormac Beausang, Eoin Moloney and Christian Daly 0-1 each.

MIDLETON: Pa White, Adam Faye, Seamus O'Farrell, Cian Crowley, Mark Daly, Aidan Ryan, Luke Dineen, Eoin Moloney, Ross O'Regan, Cathal Gunning (Captain), Padraig O'Brien, Aaron Mulcahy, Evan McGrath, Christian Daly, Johnny Comer. Subs used: Adrian O'Donovan, Brion Saunderson, Cormac Beausang and Alan Power.

Our next game is against Bride Rovers on Sunday, July 2 in Lisgoold at 3.30pm.

Our lads travelled to the city on Saturday to play Nemo Rangers in football.

We brought 25 players to Nemo for this game and all three teams were outstanding on the day getting some great scores throughout each of their games.

We would like to thank Nemo Rangers for hosting us and we will look forward to playing them again in the near future.



We played Kiltha Óg on Monday night in football at Park South. Two even teams with a great competitive edge to the game with lovely scores from both sides. Well done to Tony Keohane (pictured below) who did a brilliant job as captain on the night.

Thanks to Kiltha Óg for this match and last Wednesday's hurling match. Magpies Abú.



The past week was one of the quieter ones for the group in recent months with just one game played, this allowed the panel to take to the training field to prepare for their remaining championship fixtures,

The players made one of their longest trips of the year so far to play Beara at an excellently presented St. Oliver Plunkett’s pitch in Ahiohill. The sayings that “a good start is half the battle” and “goals win games” were confirmed once again on Friday evening as the players who are continuing to show those attending the games their excellent teamwork, skills and determination set out their intentions from the throw-in.

At the end of the 60 plus minutes the result reflected, the great foundations put in place early in the game by the forwards taking their opportunities when they arose, the group's work rate in defending for each other and the contribution of those players who were introduced during the game. The overall performance and players' approach to the games bodes well for the remainder of the Championship games which will continue in two weeks’ time.

We would like to thank the parents and supporters who travelled “west” to the game to support the players on the evening it is much appreciated by all involved.

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

The schedule of games continues for the panel with our focus now returning once again to Hurling, with the next round of the Championship being played this weekend, as we are now in the business end of the season and any support for this hard working group of players would be appreciated.

Our U-7s played a blitz on Saturday morning in Sars. The girls had great fun in the sun and showed great skill and determination against Sars and Mallow. Well done girls. 



Our U-9s had an early start Sunday morning in Watergrasshill, with three Midleton teams each playing three matches. Great support travelled up the Dublin Road and got to see some super hurling by our U-9s, who played outstanding.



Last Friday, IN stark contrast to the summer sun of the previous weeks 22 of our U-11s travelled the winding road to Aghavine to take on Fr. O’Neill’s on their home turf and Castlemartyr. Divided into two teams the girls played two games with skill and heart in misty muggy conditions. Once again there was great teamwork on display from the girls and it was great to see all those drills and skills practiced in training coming together in the matches. Well done to all the girls and their coaches. 



Well done to Gabby, Ciara and Sarah who all played very well for the Cork Dearg team in a blitz in Ahane, Co. Limerick on Saturday last. The girls had good wins over Tipperary, Limerick and Clare before losing out by a single point to Galway in the final. 




Well done to our U-11 girls who played great football against Cloyne last weekend in Clonmult Memorial Park. 



We are extremely grateful to Manuela and Diane of Tinga Tinga Childcare Midleton who kindly sponsored a set of jerseys for our Gaelic 4 Mothers and Others team. The jerseys were proudly worn at a Blitz in Mallow last Saturday. 



It was an unbelievable day at the Munster G4M&O blitz in Mallow on Saturday. We entered two teams on the day. We had sunshine, thunder and torrential rain but it did not stop the ladies playing. Plenty of points, goals but most importantly great fun was had by everyone.

Well done to all those who travelled on the day. Training takes place this Sunday in Park South at 7pm.
