Midleton Hurling and Football, Ladies Football and Camogie Club Notes - November 2

02 November, 2023





What a day for Midleton Camogie. After a superb all round team performance we were crowned Junior B County Camogie Champions for 2023 at Castle Road on Saturday.

We took control early in the game with Lucy Wallis getting our first point from play to set us on our way. Two first-half goals from Vivienne Gleeson and points from Abbie Foley, Kate O'Sullivan, Sadhbh Beausang and Aoife Fitzgerald with two great 45s saw us lead at the break 2-6 to 1-4. Molly Beausang and Laura Goulding were dominating in the half back line while Isobell Nestor and the superb Yvonne Abernethy were starting to exert control in the middle of the field.

Immediately after the break Yvonne  Abernethy added a great point. We were hurling with great confidence now and further points followed from Jodie Keegan O'Connell, Kate Sullivan, Vivienne Gleeson 3f's and Saoirse Ni Theangana off the bench. Emma Sullivan added a goal in injury-time to seal a fantastic  win.

It was a great all round performance. Jill Connaughton was as reliable as ever in goals. The half back line of Molly Beausang, Aoife Fitzgerad and Laura Goulding were superb throughout, midfield duo of Isobelle Nestor and Yvonne Abernethy completely ran the show in that area  of the field with Yvonne in particular driving forward at every opportunity.

All six starting forwards scored from play with two more scoring off the bench. Sorcha Cronin also made a big contribution when introduced in the second-half as did Muireann Ni Chonchubhair and Rachel Ryan. In all we had 28 girls togged out on Saturday and everyone of them have contributed at various stages during the season to get us over the line. Their commitment to training and supporting the team was essential in the great victory that everyone enjoyed on Saturday.

Our U-12s beat Youghal in the Football Cup Final on Saturday a scoreline of 6-8 to 2-4 at St Itas GAA pitch.

Down 2-1 to no score after five minutes our lads dug deep and showed great resolve to lead at half time 2-3 to 2-1.
It was like they said no way are we leaving this pitch without the cup, put shoulder to the wheel, and ran out deserving winners in the end.

Driving through the town afterwards with the cup and players out the sunroof was something they will remember for a long time. It was heartwarming to see business owners and street goers out clapping and saluting the players even after everything the town had gone through the past number of weeks. It was really uplifting. What a great town we live in!!


Our U-14 hurlers will be participating in the finals of the Munster GAA Super 10s competition in Mallow on Saturday (November 4). Best of luck lads.

On Sunday last we traveled to Clonakilty to play in the quarter-final of championship. 

There was nothing between the sides. We didn't have that bit of luck on the day. Every girl should be so proud of themselves for the effort they gave against one of the best teams in the county who are a senior club and played in an U-16 A county semi-final only two years ago. Final score: Clonakilty 1-12 Midleton 1-8.



On Bank holiday Monday we played Youghal at St Ita’s pitch. Having left Midleton in the torrential rain we arrived to beautiful sunshine in Pilmore. A fantastic team effort from all the girls saw us comfortable winners on the day. We will play Bride Rovers in the final. Details to be confirmed. 



The Ladies Football AGM will take please on Wednesday, November 8 at 7.30pm. All welcome to attend. 



Well done to our Junior Camogie team who had a great County Final win over Eire Og on Saturday. 



Later this month, a group of Irish GAA stars (including our own Orlagh Farmer) and musicians will travel to Kenya as part of a Warriors for Humanity campaign in aid of Self Help Africa.

This group of GAA players will take part in only the second ever All-Star, Male and Female game in Africa. The target is for each participant to raise €10,000 by November. The goal is to plant one million trees in Africa in partnership with Self Help Africa who have spent decades working closely with local farmers, communities and experts to be the best at what they do. Each tree we plant will represent a livelihood for an African family.

'An integral part of the project is to train farmers on managing their trees for this purpose. As a result, we know that the trees are looked after and cared for over the years. We want the impact of our work to be felt for many years to come, benefitting future generations and leaving a legacy we can all be proud of.

Our Fé21 hurlers opened ther campaign in Caherlag on Saturday when we took on the home side in a very competitive encounter.  

There was nothing in it from the off and after the opening quarter the sides were level at 0-4 each. We fared the better in the second quarter and points from Mikey Finn (a sideline, a free and a point from play), Dave Cremin and Evan McGrath saw us lead by 0-11 to 0-7 at the halway stage. 

The home side came out firing in the second-half and inside ten minutes of the second-half the sides were level at 0-12 each. The sides were level at 0-14 on 47 minutes before Dara Scanlon came off the bench to goal to put us three ahead but Erins Own came straight back up the field to goal to draw the game once again. 

From here four Mikey Finn frees and an excellent point from play from Ciarmhac Smyth saw us over the line after a tough encounter by three points.

Our next game will be against Carrigtwohill. Date to be confirmed. 

Scorers: Mikey Finn 0-15, Dara Scanlon 1-0, Alex Quirke, Dave Cremin, Evan McGrath and Ciarmhac Smyth 0-1 each.
