Junior C hurling Championship
Midleton 1-08 Dungourney 1-07
Midleton Junior C hurlers, our fourth adult hurling team, were in Championship action on Friday evening last. They faced Dungourny in Lisgoold on what was a dull drizzly evening. Dungourney had first use of the hill and had an early goal. With defences on top it soon became apparent that this was going to be a low scoring game and that goals would be very valuable. Midleton welcomed back a number of players who had missed a lot of the year through injury. Eoin Ferriter, Aegus Cotter, James O’Donnall and the evergreen Sean Corcoran, who had a terrible ankle injury earlier in the year, all started. James O’Donnell has to retire early on the night when he picked up a thumb injury. Muiris Quirke replaced him and slotted in well at centre back. It was nip and tuck to half time and the goal still separated the side. Dungourney 1-03 Midleton 0-3. Midleton upped their efforts  the second half but Dungourney were dealing well with the added pressure. Eoin Ferriter and Jerome Curtin were doing well in our full back line. Captain Brendan Ferriter was prominent at wing back beside the steady Muiris Quirke. Justin Costigan was striking a lot of ball at midfield. Aengus Cotter was doing well on the forty and Kevin McSweeney and Sean Corcoran were to the fore up front. The selectors emptied the bench as Midleton chased the game. The introduction of Coleman Qurke alongside Sean Corcoran in the full forward line meant there was no lack of experience close to goal. After sustained pressure Midleton eventually got the goal they needed when Sean Corcoran forced the ball over the line with five minutes left. In an exciting last few minutes Midleton held out for a one point win and this sets up a meeting with Castlemartyr in the semi final.
Team: Christy Dunlea, Mathew Bell, Eoin Ferriter, Jerome Curtin, Brendan Ferriter (Captain), James O’Donnell, Andrew Rea, Paul Ahern, Justin Costigan, Kevi McSweeney, Aengus Cotter, Sean Corcoran, Shane Goulding, Dara O’Keeefe, Gearoid Fitzgerald, Subs Used: Muiris Quirke, John Shanahan, Coleman Quirke, Brian Fitzgerald, Killian O’Brien.

Senior Hurling league
Midleton 2-13 St Finbarrs 2-10
Midleton played their thirteenth league game at the weekend and overcame St. Finnbarrs by three points. This leaves on thirteen points with two games to play. We will most likely need to win both to qualify for the plyoffs and a chance to defend our title. We face Ballinhassing at home on Saturady next, 24th, at 4pm with our final game against Blackrock.

Fe 13
Our U-13 Eastern Division Panel travelled to Ballincollig to take on the Western Champions Kilbrittain in the County Semi-Final on Saturday Sept 17th. Playing against a strong wind in the first half the boys did very well until the final 8 mins when a quick goal scoring burst by Kilbrittain meant that we had been left with a mountain to climb in the second half. The boys stuck to their task for the second half and began to pull the score back but the Kilbrittain goal led a charmed life for parts of the half and our lads couldn't find enough scores to overhaul the big deficit. These lads deserve a load of credit for having come through a tough Eastern Division as champions and have shown that there is plenty of potential there if they keep working hard at their game.
The Panel on the day was Dylan Cahalane (Capt), Eoin Hartnett, Cormac Higgins, Kelvin Hickey, Conor Evans, Conor O'Neill, John O'Dwyer,
Kevin Daly, Sean O'Meara, Ryan O'Reagan, Tom Scanlon, PJ Fitzgearld, Tommy O'Connell, Ronan O'Donovan, Shane O'Brien, Eoin Moloney, Christopher Power, Cathal Gunning, Sean O'Leary and Liam Franklin
Our U-13 Central Team are playing Championship on Saturday Sept 24th at home at 12noon against Na Piarsaigh.
Fe 10
What a week for the Fe 10 hurlers of Midleton. The finals of the County Board summer leagues were held in Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th of September. Three Midleton teams participated in all; two on Tuesday and one on Wednesday. Games were 11 a side and 8 minutes per half. The park was awash with colour on both nights with twenty teams from all over Cork attending each night.
Midleton had 8 games in total over the two nights and were tested well in all.
Some opposition teams we had never played before – the likes of St Catherines and Ballygarvan. Others we have clashed already including St Finbarrs, Glen Rovers, Bishiopstown and Fr O’Neills.
Midleton were a credit to themselves and were strong in all of their games. They showed great heart and a good deal of hurling skill.
The evenings concluded with the walk up the steps to collect their medals. Hopefully this will be the first of many presentations in the Park for the lads. Well done to both players and also the parents who made the trip.
Fe 9
On Saturday the 17th we took the short trip to Douglas for a Fe 9 hurling challange.We had 28 players who travelled on the morning, so we had 3 teams one 10 aside and two 9 aside. We played three matches of three 15 min a side which gave plenty of game time for both teams and makes it easier to put players in different positions. Our three teams did very well and are showing great improvement each week. We had some great performances from players that are always training which shows that plenty of practice pays off. Thanks to Douglas for holding the game.We will continue to train on Thursdays from 18.30 to 19.30 on the side pitch and on  Saturdays mornings until the end of the month.

Fe 8
Midleton’s Fe8’s were in Rostellan on Saturday 17th. This was ideal end of season stuff as the outing consisted of Gaelic Football and Hurling matches. Both Midleton and Aghada had sufficient numbers that allowed the clubs field two teams.
So, on what was a breezy morning hurling was first up. The two hurling games served up some fine performances. Midleton only just shaded both hurling games. From what was witnessed on Saturday hurling is in safe hands for the future in both of these clubs.
Second on the agenda was the football matches. Again, all participants can be proud of their contributions and it’s safe to say that from the evidence of the morning’s games there’s a lot of work being put into both clubs at this age group.
Fe 7
Our Fe 7 team took on Blackrock in small sided ground hurling games in Midleton on Saturday 17th. Early days to judge the lads as it may be they impressed. The basics of holding the hurley and pulling on both sides look to be sorted. It looked like great fun for all the kids on the field which at this age is of great importance. Well done lads and keep up the hard work.

Ladies Fe 10
Midleton Girls U10 Gaelic Football team traveled last Saturday - 17th September - to a Fermoy full of heavy showery and warm sunshine. There was a great turnout for the Fermoy blitz. First up for the girls were a gallant Fermoy A team. All Midleton players excelled with some great performances throughout the field. The standard of football displayed was exceptionally high. The second game was against the Fermoy B team. In this game the girls even managed to exceed the standard they had set themselves in the first match. The finally match was against Erins Own. The girls showed great determination in this game, but tiredness and a lack of fresh legs started to catch up with the team. They finished on a high when the team managed to  get the last score of the game. Thanks to all the players and parents for a super morning’s entertainment in the Blackwater town.
Panel: Caoimhe Hartnett, Eva Nestor, Amy O’Neill, Aoife Mitchell, Aine O’Neill, Lucy Wallis, Lucy Kenneally, Sadhbh Beausang, Stephanie Carroll, Kate Dineen, Rayanna Clarkin-Power, Ciara Gilmartin, Eabha Collins, Leah Hogan, Shannon Deady and Ellen Mooney.

We travelled with 16 girls and all got to play full matches, There was very strong displays by Misha Daly Harkin, Rachel Barry, Isabelle Kelly, Orla Evans, Kerrie Rohan, Aideen Mitchell and Ella Quirke We played three matches and won them all.

The Lotto since its introduction to our Club a number of years ago has been our main source 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 €8,700) 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.
