Midleton 2-12 Bride Rovers 2-7

Our senior hurlers made it two league wins from two on Sunday morning in a hard-fought battle with East Cork neighbours Bride Rovers in front of a fine attendance at Clonmult Memorial Park in difficult conditions. 

After an early Bride Rovers point and one in reply from Kian Farmer, the Bridesiders struck for the game's opening goal on 12 minutes. Eoin Moloney struck back but Bride Rovers added two more white flags to lead by 1-3 to 0-2 after 20 minutes. 

A second Kian Farmer point from play and two Aaron Mulcahy frees brought us within a point after 25 minutes but the visitors finished the half the stronger with two points from play and a late goal from a penalty to see them go in at the break leading by 2-5 to 0-5.

An early Bride Rovers point after the restart extended their lead to seven but they would only score one more point in the remaining 29 minutes as we totally took over the game.

Alex Quirke started the comeback with a 35th minute goal and points followed from Aaron Mulcahy (2) and Rory Hartnett to bring us within a point. 

We took the lead for the first time in the game in the 49th minute when Eoin Moloney made a brilliant run forward and finished to the net to give us a 2-8 to 2-6 lead.

Further points from Eoin Moloney, Aaron Mulcahy (2) and Sam Quirke saw us run out convincing winners by five points after a tough battle.

Scorers: Midleton: Aaron Mulcahy 0-6 (0-5 f), Eoin Moloney 1-2, Alex Quirke 1-0, Kian Farmer 0-2, SamQuirke and Rory Hartnett 0-1 each.

Our intermediates faced Aghabullogue in a repeat of last year's County Final in Clonmult Memorial Park on Saturday afternoon.

We got off to a strong start with points from Alex Moloney, Evan McGrath and Gavin Reddy to gve us a 0-3 to 0-1 lead after the opening quarter. 

Aghabullogue hit the next four points before points from Aaron Mulcahy saw us go in at the break trailing by a point, 0-6 to 0-5.

The visitors struck the first four points of the second-half to take a five point lead. Aaron Mulcahy's two points brought us within a goal with 11 minutes to play but Aghabullogue struck back with three points in a row before Cathal Beausang finished our scoring as the Muskerry men ran out six point winners.

Midleton 3-16 Bride Rovers 1-14

It's two wins from two for the Junior A hurlers after a great team effort last Sunday at a wet Clonmult Memorial Park. A couple of early goals put us in a good position and despite a strong finish to the half from Bride Rovers we went in at the break leading 2-8 to 1-8. The second-half was a tight affair but the third goal was enough to give us the points on offer.

MIDLETON: Zach Smith, Adam Fay, Billy O'Shea, Kieran Lambert, Charlie Walsh, Patrik Kane, Darragh Codd, Alan Power (0-2f), Evan McCarthy, Christian Daly (1-4), Ben O'Neill, Harry Wall (0-1), Andy Rea (2-1), Kieran Mulcahy, Brian O'Sullivan (0-1) Subs (all used): Mark O'Keeffe (0-4, 3f), Dara Scanlon (0-3), Alex Moloney, Tim O'Sullivan, Tadgh Bohan, Charlie Linehan

On Sunday the 7th of April we face Aghada in Clonmult Memorial Park at 2.30pm and on Tuesday the 9th we meet Russell Rovers in Park South at 6.45pm.




Thanks to everyone who supported our very successful registration and swap shop morning on Saturday last and of course all our club volunteers who helped out on the day.




Our Fé8s had a great morning taking on Blackrock in Church Road on Saturday last. Well done lads and keep up the great work!



Our Fe14 team that drew their Premier 1 Hurling league game with Blarney in Clonmult Memorial Park on Saturday evening on a scoreline of Midleton 3-5 Blarney 1-11.



On Sunday our minor footballers travelled to Mid Cork to take on Ballinora. Heavy ground conditions made it difficult for both teams, but the Magpies started brightly and had four points on the board before the home side got off the mark. The Midleton forwards were combining well and the backs were very disciplined and gave nothing easy. Callum O’Brien, Sean McSharry and Odhran Dennigen were in great form up front. Luca Brodkorb and Carthaigh Cronin had the better of the midfield exchanges.  A hard fought first half ended with Midleton leading by 1-8 to Ballinora's 0-2.

As expected the Mid Cork lads came out strongly in the second-half. Our lads responded to the challenge and put in a huge effort on every front working extremely hard without the ball. It was a tough but fair contest which saw the Magpies prevail with the help of a big fourth quarter push. Thomas Dunlea, Adam O'Connor and Eoin Ahern were part of the aforementioned strong defence and were prominent throughout.

MIDLETON: Josh Foley, Eoin Ahern, Adam O'Connor, Callum McSweeney, Yohannis Mehigen, Thomas Dunlea, Darragh Cronin (0-1), Luca Brodkorb, Carthaigh Cronin (0-1), Callum O'Brien (0-2) , Sean McSharry (1-5),  Daragh Egan, Jack Foley, James Mc Sweeney (0-1), Odhran Dennigen  (1-2), Cian Stack, Matthew McSweeney.




Our U12 girls played their second challenge match this season in cold and wet conditions in Cobh on Saturday morning. While Cobh were strong opponents, our girls showed great determination and despite a few injuries put in a great performance. We are now looking forward to the season ahead - we have two teams playing in the U12 County League and both teams play their first matches in the coming weeks at home against Newcestown and Erin's Own respectively. We wish both teams the very best of luck for the League.



UCC's Mardyke was the sight of a friendly battle on Saturday between Midleton U-13 Camogie and Sars.
Midleton fought hard from the first whistle, and from each position from Goalie through to full forward. Midleton proved the victors in the end, and this was a good test for the girls as we prepare for our league matches.

Our U-13s also played a challenge game this week against Douglas on the beautiful 4G pitch in Pairc Ui Chaoimh. We saw some outstanding play all over the pitch from our girls who have really worked hard over the past seven weeks in training. Imokilly league competition is up next for this group with our White team having their opening round game on Sunday away to Watergrasshill. On the April 10 our Black Team host killeagh in Clonmult Memorial in their opening game. Magpies Abú.



Huge congratulations to Mark O’Sullivan (aka Fanta), all the coaches and the Cork Intermediate camogie team on a great win versus Clare last Saturday in the league final.



On Saturday last a contingent of Midleton GAA members and supporters made the journey to Dblin at the invite of the GAA and Dublin City council to honour teams who won All-Ireland titles in Clonturk Park prior to the GAA purchasing Croke Park. It was a great event and it was great to once again remember our All-Ireland winning heroes of 1890.

From left to right: Sean Colbert (William Colbert’s grandson). Brothers, Ronan and Brian Traynor (Jim Power’s grandsons), David Traynor (Jim Power’s great-grandson) and Martina Traynor (Ronan Traynor’s wife and mother to David) and Vincent O'Neill (Midleton GAA) who were all at Clonturk Park last Saturday at the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate the All-Ireland finals played there, including Midleton’s All-Ireland football semi-final and final wins of 1890. Midleton footballers from 1890 William Colbert and Ted Downey are both buried in Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin and Jim Power (team captain) is buried in St Finbarr’s Cemetery, Cork city.



We held our latest get together this week and once again a big thank you to all who attended and everyone who helps to make this event such a great success, month after month.

Our next Monday Club takes place on this coming April 29 at 10.30am. Everyone is welcome, members and non members of all ages. Come and have a cup of tea or coffee and a chat, you won't regret it.

Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive.

SafeTALK-trained helpers can recognise these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources. SafeTALK-trained helpers are an important part of suicide-safer communities, working alongside intervention resources to identify and avert suicide risks.

It was with great sadness that we heard of the death of Br. Cunningham, who died on Sunday. Most of our (older) members will need no reminding of this man, who served as Principal of Midleton CBS Primary School for over 20 years from the late 70s to the late 90s.

As well as instilling a great love for the GAA in his students, he also served as manager/coach of the Midleton GAA U-12 team for what seemed like decades. During this time he enjoyed great success but much more than that he laid the foundations for great success and enjoyment in hurling and gaelic football for decades to come.

He was frequent visitor back to Midleton over the years and always spoke extremely fondly of the school, the town and of course our club. He was a very proud Limerick man but he will always be considered as a proud Magpie who did so much for our club.

We extend our sympathies to all his family, friends and fellow Christian Brothers at this sad time.



We also lost another man that gave great service as an underage coach and long-time supporter of our club this week in Jimmy Mullaney of Park Street. We extend our deepest sympathies to Ann, Pat, Sharon, Gillian, Deborah and all Jimmy's family and many friends at this sad time.
