Midleton GAA news 29th August

29 August, 2011

Fe 21 East Cork Final
Midleton 3-17 Erins Own 1-08
Midleton completed the East Cork Hurling and Football Fe 21 A grade double on Saturday evening last when they overcame Erins Own in convincing style. The game was played in Lisgoold and Midleton played with the wind and the hill in the first half. We were quickly into our stride. We were leading by 0-5 to 0-2 when the first goal arrived courtesy of Luke O’Farrel who won a long delivery on the 21 and created his own opportunity which he finished in style. The points continued to flow and a second goal duly arrived when Pa Whyte finished spectacularly for a delightful goal. Midleton continued to build a score. Our defence was well on top and Erins Own were limited to frees. Given that we would face the wind and the hill in the second half it was important to build a good lead and at half we we leading by 2-11 to 0-04.
The second half was a more even contest but at no stage did it look like our lead was going to come under pressure. Paul Haughney added a third goal and the game came to a tame finish with Midleton finishing on 3-17 to Erins Own 1-08.
After the game East Cork Board Chairman Michael O’Brien presented the Ben Purcell Cup to Midleton captain James Nagle.

Minor Hurling quarter Final
Our Minor Hurlers are in Championship action this coming weekend when the face Castlelyons in the quarter final. These teams met already in the Championship when Midleton came through a good quality game but it was only in the last ten minutes of that game that we got on top. Castlelyons played a lot of good hurling and appeared to be a well drilled side. Midleton had to pull out all the stops on the night to get the win. The Midleton selectors have guided their team to an extra time win over Glen Rovers since then and will be hoping to progress as they attempt to defend their title. They will have to plan without the services of the suspended Ian Kennifick which does not make the task any easier. At the time of writing no exact  fixture details were to hand.

Night at the Dogs
Midleton GAA Club are heading to the Dogs again on Saturday 1st October. Following the success of last years fundraiser we are doing the same again this year. For €20 you can enter our draw. If the finishing order of the dogs in the nominated race matches your ticket you win €1,000. Only one ticket will be sold for each possible combination. Your ticket also gives free admission for two adults and three children to Curraheen Park Greyhound Stadium on race night of October 1st. This is an important fundraiser for the Club and your support would be much appreciated. Tickets are available from all Club Officers.


The Lotto since its introduction to our Club a number of years ago has been one of our main sources of income and is crucial towards the upkeep and development of the club.   
The Lotto draw takes place approximately 50 weeks of the year on each Friday night at the GAA Club.
The Jackpot begins at €1,200 (our current Jackpot is €8,600) and increases weekly by €200, in the event of there being no winner we have 5 Lucky dips @ €40 each.
We believe that many club members would support the Lotto if there was a more convenient way of contributing other than €2 per week.
In addition to the 5 week, 11 week and Yearly tickets, we now have a Direct Debit facility available to those who would prefer to support the club in this manner. 
For as little as €8 a month you will be entered in at least 50 draws, if you would like to support your club please contact any Club officer who will assist you in completing the form.
