East Cork Division 4 Hurling League Final
Midleton 2-15 Dungourney 0-12

Goals in either half from Christian Daly, helped Midleton to claim the ECI-JCB Division 4 hurling league final played at Rathcormac on Saturday evening. The opening goal came in the 10th minute and sent Midleton into a 1-2 to 0-1 lead. By half time good points from Mark O’Keeffe, Harry Wall and Nicky Daly Hayes saw Midleton lead by 1-7 to 0-7 with Sean Feeney and top scorer Ciaran Flynn keeping Dungourney in touch.
On the resumption Midleton added a few good points to stretch clear but a fine penalty save by Oran Sweetman kept Dungourney in the game. Niall Geaney, Sean Geaney, sub Diarmuid O’Sullivan and Stephen Hickey were all playing well for Dungourney, but the Midleton attack was more potent and the second goal from Daly with ten minutes remaining sent Midleton clear. Ciaran Flynn continued to impress but points from Mark O’Keeffe and Ben O’Neill sealed a fully deserved victory for the Magpies.

After the game the ECI-JCB cup was presented by Norin O’Callaghan from the Eat Cork Board to Midleton captain Ben O’Neill (pictured above).

Our senior hurlers completed their league schedule on Friday night at home in Clonmult Memorial Park against Fermoy and they ended the campaign with a good perfomace and win.

We started brightly with two early points from Dave Scanlon and Pa White before Fermoy levelled up before the fifth minute. We then hi six in a row through Paul Haughney, Padraig O'Brien, Ross O'Regan (2) and Aaron Mulcahy (2) to put us 0-8 to 0-2 ahead after 13 minutes. 

Fermoy came back again to leave it a one-point game (0-8 to 0-7) on 24 minutes but points from Mikey Finn, Aaron Mulcahy and Kian Farmer helped us lead by three at half-time, 0-11 to 0-8.

As in the first-half we hit the ground running on the resumption and points from Paul Haughney (2) and Ross O'Regan and a well taken goal by Padraig O'Brien saw us into a 1-14 to 0-8 lead inside six second-half minutes. 

From here to the end Mikey Finn and Aaron Mulcahy kept the scoreboard ticking over and by the final whistle we had eight to spare, 1-19 to 1-11.

So we finished our finished our Division 2 league campaign with five wins (Bride Rovers, Fermoy, Bishopstown, Newtownshandrum and Mallow), two draws (Courcey Rovers & Glen Rovers) and two defeats (St. Finbarrs and Ballincollig). 

Glen Rovers finished on top 15 points and we finished joint second with Ballincollig on 12 points. We miss out on a place in the league final and promotion to division one on our head to head with Ballincollig. 

We will have two more East Cork derbies next year as Erins Own and Killeagh will be joining this division after their relegation from division one, while Carrigaline and Eire Og will come into this division for 2024 from division three with Mallow and Bishopstown dropping down.

Scorers: Midleton: Aaron Mulcahy 0-6 (0-2F), Padraig O'Brien 1-1, ikey Finn, Ross O'Regan and Paul Haughney 0-3 each, Pa White, Dave Scanlon and Kian Farmer 0-1 each. 

MIDLETON: Bryan Rossiter, Catahl Gunning, Luke Dineen, Seannaidh Smyth, Christian Murphy, Eoin Moloney, Dave Scanlon, Paul Haughney, Kian Farmer, Aaron Mulcahy, Ross O'Regan, Padraig O'Brien, Paul Connaughton, Pa White, Mikey Finn. Subs used: Evan McCarthy, Gavin Reddy, Leo Hennessy and Cathal Beausang. 




Our intermediate hurlers also brought the curtain down on their league campaign at the weekend as they came away from Lisgoold on Sunday afternoon with a very hard-earned but deserved win over a strong Castlemartyr side.

It was Castlemartyr who flew out of the traps in this game and they led by 0-5 to 0-1 after seven minutes. But points from Gavin Reddy (2), Aaron Mulcahy (3) and Paul Connaughton had us back within one (0-8 to 0-7) on 18 minutes. Castlemartyr finished the half as they started and they led at the break on a scoreline of 0-13 to 0-8 having played with the breeze and the hill in the opening period.

We got the perfect start to the second-half when Padraig O'Brien goaled inside 50 seconds followed by points from Padraig O'Shea and Paul Connaughton, who soon after struck for our second green flag to put us 2-10 to 0-14 in front with seven second-half minutes played. But in a ding-dong battle Castlemartyr replied with 1-2 to go back in front (1-16 to 2-10).

Castlemartyr led by three (1-19 to 2-13) with just over nine minutes to play but that was to be their final score as we really took over down the stretch and finished excellently with 1-3 from Aaron Mulcahy and two points from Kian Farmer to seal an excellent win by five points after a cracking game.

We finished seventh of ten teams on eight points with three wins and two draws and will play in division five again next season.

Our next game is the Mick Tobin Cup in Knockanore on Saturday, July 8.

Scorers: Midleton: Aaron Mulcahy 1-9 (0-4 frees), Paul Connaugthon 1-2, Padraig O'Brien 1-0, Kian Farmer 0-3, Gavin Reddy and Padraig O'Shea 0-2 each.

The rain stayed away as our Fe11 girls hosted Dungourney and Watergrasshill at Park South on Sunday morning. There was plenty of action across the pitches and our girls battled well in the warm sunshine. Many thanks to the visiting teams for their time and commitment.



Our Fe13s were in action with a friendly game on Sunday 25th June in ideal conditions at home in Park South against Youghal. Fair play to all the players who contributed to this exciting game of camogie with Youghal winning out in the end. There was plenty of skill, effort and determination on display.Thanks to all players, the coaches, the referee and all the supporters for a great evening of camogie.

Well done to Rebecca (see below) our U-13 captain against Youghal on Sunday.

Some resolute defending coupled with some excellent scores ensured that the girls got over the line. Well done to Molly (pictured below) who captained the second U15 team against Bride Rovers. Molly was rock solid in defence.



Our U-15s started their imokilly league campaign on Thursday evening against Fr O’Neills. A good tough battle with loads of great hurling and some brilliant scores from both sides 

Midleton came out on top on this occasion.

Special thanks to Ciara, Jamie and Amy from the u14s who helped us out this evening and were excellent throughout the game.



Our U-16s lined out in the sunshine in Clonmult this evening against a very good Killeagh team. With holidays and injuries we had four  u14s eight u15s and four u16s and to their credit each player put in a huge shift. It was a pleasure to watch all the ages gel together and come away with a fine win.

Special mention to Leah, Sarah, Olivia and Molly from the 14s, big step up but not a bother to them.




Last Saturday we hosted an U-10 football blitz in Park South. We welcomed Youghal and Aghada. Well done to all girls. There was some great football played and all the girls had a great time.
