Midleton Hurling and Football, Ladies Football and Camogie Club News - July 20

20 July, 2023


Our 2023 Midleton GAA Golf in association with Blackwater Motors took place at East Cork Golf Club on Thursday last. Of course it should have been Thursday and Friday but unfortunately the course was closed due to adverse weather conditions on Friday so we had to reduce the classic to one day.

A huge thanks to everyone who put in a team or sponsored a tee box, it is much appreciated. Also a big thank you to everybody, too many to mention, who helped in putting this classic together in advance and on the day. 

We also had a great night at the Midleton GAA Club on Friday night for the presentations and thanks to everyone who turned out. See below for the results, tee box and team sponsors and our top five teams.

Pictures of all our prize winners and most of the teams that took part are on our Facebook and Instagram pages.





We travelled to Dungourney on Sunday bidding to book our place in the semi-finals of the East Cork Championship after opening round wins over Youghal and Bride Rovers. Unfortunately this wasn't to be our day and we lost out by five points. We now make our way into the quarter-finals of the championship where we will take on Lisgoold on the weekend of August 18-20 with the winners to play Aghada in the semi-finals. 

MIDLETON: Mike Abernethy, Sean Cronin, Darragh McCarthy, Cian Crowley, Mark Daly, Luke Dineen, Evan McCarthy, Eoin Moloney, Brion Saunderson, Cathal Gunning (Captain), Aaron Mulcahy, Evan McGrath, Cromac Beausang, Christian Daly, Johnny Comer.



With our opening round of championship against Bishoptown just over two weeks away, our senior hurlers continue their preparation this week with challenge games against Kilruane MacDonaghs of Tipperary and Patrickswell of Limerick. 



Our Junior C Footballers are in championship action on this coming Saturday night, July 22, when they travel to Rathcormac to take on Bride Rovers at 6pm. Best of luck lads. 



We received seven tickets for Sunday's All-Ireland Senior Hurling Final between Limerick and Kilkenny. We made a draw on Tuesday morning and here were the winners: Barry Fitzgerald x 2, Jerome Curtin x 2, Michael Carroll x 2 and Dave Cody x 1.



A busy week for our young Magpies. On Wednesday we travelled to Pairc Ui Chaoimh where we played Kilworth on the Astro in hurling. Then on Saturday we hosted Ballincollig for a hurling blitz. We fielded three teams on both days and the lads really enjoyed their hurling.



Unfortunately there is no championship for the Fé13 this summer but we have a summer league to look forward to.

Starting last weekend with football, the P2 team were away to Mallow and the C3 team away to Kinsale.

P2: Midleton 2-15 Mallow 5-13 (pictured above)

C3: MIdleton 4-2 Kinsale 3-2 (pictured below).

Hurling this coming week C3 v Carrigtwohill and P1 v Douglas.



The panel brought their recent competitive fixtures to an end by playing the remaining league finals against Macroom and Ballincollig.

Unfortunately, the results did not go our way despite the best efforts of the players in both games. It was not for the lack of effort by all concerned that the results went against us and it was clear to see for all in attendance how the players support and play for each other even when the scoreboard is against them.

The football league final played in Macroom was one of two halves; Macroom settled more quickly into the game and opened up a half-time advantage that they did not give up. Following a number of positional changes at half time our players made a battling comeback only to come up short by two points in the end.

The hurling final played in Ballincollig was a closer game throughout with never more than two scores separating the teams, where once again the battling qualities of the panel were on show right up to the final whistle.

The players for both games were: Aidan O’Regan, Alfie Hennessy, Billy Murphy,  Breaninn O'Dalaigh, Charlie Cahill, Cian Hogan; Daniel O’Connell,  Daire Crowley, Donncha Butler, Ethan Foley, Finn Murray, Jack Sweeney, Josh Quill, Manus Stewart, Liam Walsh, Patrick O’Brien, Patrick Spelman, Rian McCormack, Robin O’Brien, Rohan Fitzsimmons, Rory Nolan, Seb Mowinski.

The players will be taking a well-earned break for a couple of weeks from Fé14 activities and we will return to training which will be communicated to parents in due course.




The Fé15 boys travelled to Riverstown on Friday last to play Sarsfields in this year’s P1 Hurling league final. Playing against a significant breeze in the first-half, the lads found points hard to come by. However, goals from Senan Carroll and Shane O’Mahony were important scores giving a half-time score of Sarsfields 0-16 Midleton 2-4. The lads pressed hard in the second half but despite playing some great hurling they just came up short on the night, with a final scoreline of Sarsfields 0-22 Midleton 2-14. The panel was: Michael Allegrini, Rian McCormack, Peader Egan, Patrick Collins, Harry Waterman, Max Murphy, Ciaran Kelly, Scott Dunlea, Cian Lawton (captain), Patrick O’Dowd, Senan Carroll, Dara Birdthistle, John O’Sullivan, Shane O’Mahony, Darragh Mullins, Jack Walsh, Ruairi O’Riordan, Ewan Murphy, Adam Spillane, Dara Cahill, Fionn Bohan, Alex Horgan, Jack Cahill, Charlie McCarthy, Josh Quill.



The Fé15 boys were on the road again last Monday with a must-win match v Glen Rovers in the second round of the Fé15 P1 hurling championship. In wet conditions the lads showed great determination in the first-half and went in ahead at half-time on a scoreline of Glen Rovers 1-6 Midleton 1-11, the goal coming from Jack Cahill.

The match was delayed for over 10 minutes at the start of the second-half after an injury to captain Cian Lawton, who had to leave the field on a stretcher. The lads regrouped after that break and put in a polished second-half performance with further goals from Senan Carroll and John O’Sullivan giving a final score of Glen Rovers 1-10 Midleton 3-17.

All the lads and management wish Cian a speedy recovery from his injury. The panel was: Michael Allegrini, Josh Quill, Peader Egan, Riain McCormack, Cuan Twomey, Max Murphy, Ciaran Kelly, Scott Dunlea, Cian Lawton (captain), Liam Walsh, Senan Carroll, Patrick O’Dowd, Jack Cahill, Shane O’Mahony, John O’Sullivan, Jack Walsh, Ruairi O’Riordan, Dara Birdthistle, Charlie McCarthy, Finn Cahill.

A special thanks to Glen Rovers for their help with Cian and the amublance on the night. 

Thanks to all that came to cheer on the lads over the last few matches – your support is really appreciated.

Next up for the Fé15 lads is:

· C3 Hurling League v Carrigtwohill (away) Saturday July 22nd at 5pm.

· P2 Football Championship Rd. 2 v Youghal (away) Monday 24th July at 7pm.

We have been asked to remind members and especially our club coaches that the GAA Learning Portal is a great resource which is free to use. Please check it out at



Liam Wade and Colemane Quirke recently attended a Safe Club prestation for East Cork clubs at Paric Uí Chaoimh and they have asked me to make you aware of some free online certified courses that are available courtesy of Midleton GAA in association with fit2trade. Please try it out. "It's Free". It's simple and straight forward and very intuitive. Get your children to learn a new life skill. Log on as you see fit and get them certified in Manual Handling / First Aid awareness etc.   

As part of this we must update our Safety Statement which we'll be doing with Sean Corcoran and also we're asked to do a "Health & Safety Walk-about" of the club to identify any risks /observations and record these in a template issue by Croke Park. Subsequent to this, we'll have an audit carried out by the GAA H&S Officer Patrick O Brien (not our Pat O'Brien).

The GAA is also piloting some online Health and Safety Training and have partnered with Fit2Trade. 

Once you log on, you're guided easily through the process.

Free Training and Certification

There are some great courses on here from Manual Handling to First Aid Awareness plus many others and these are free to all our Membership. Certification follows on successful completion. These courses range generally from 5 to 45 minutes or so. They are ideal for Volunteers or Students (TY Student and others) who want to upskill and have certification. Below are some of the courses available.  I completed the First Aid one and found it interactive and informative. The cert on completion is easy to download.



We have a smashing club house, bar and hall, at Midleton GAA Club and don't forget that these are available to hire for functions....see below for details....
