Junior B Hurling Semi Final Replay
Midleton 3-10 Dungourney 0-12
Midleton junior B hurlers overcame neighbours Dungourney in the replay of the Junior B Hurling semi final on Saturday night last. The game was played in Ballynoe under lights. Midleton had managed to fashion a draw in the first game when it looked highly unlikely. This was a much improved performance which was required to overcome worthy opponents. Dungourney got off to the better start but by half time Midleton led by 2-04 to 0-07 with the goals coming from Padraig O’Farrell and Philip O’Neill. Dungourney made the stronger start to the second half and the lead was reduced to  a single point. A goal from Sean Corcoran drove Midleton on and in the end the the margin was seven points. Overall it was a fine performance by the players and Mentors and one that will hopefully stand to them as they prepare for the final. The final itself is due to be played this coming Saturday, 29th, against St. Catherines in Castlemartyr at 3pm.
Another big performance will be required if the lads are to clinch the title. Please come along and give all involved your support on the day.  
Team: Coran Swayne, Pat Stack, Eoin Ferriter, Liam Clohessy, Neil O’Regan, Barry Fitzgerald, Ian O’Brien, Davy Hogan, Justin Costigan, Pater Smith, Sean Corcoran, Brian O’Sullivan, Philip O’Neill, Aengus Cotter, Padraig O’Farrell.

Red FM Senior Hurling League
Midleton 1-17 Newtownshandrum 3-08
On Friday evening last in Fermoy our Senior hurlers qualified for the Conroy Cup Senior Hurling League final with a hard earned but deserved win over Newtownshandrum. Midleton were on top for most of the first half and led by eight points at half time, 1-10 to 0-05. Our goal coming from Conor Lehane after a spectacular catch and finish. Newtown scored a couple of goals in the second from Jamie Coughlan to keep them in the game. They added a third goal at the end of normal time. This meant that there was only a goal in it. Tom Wallis who was deputising for the honeymooning Brian Behan then brought off an excellent save to ensure the game did not go to extra time. Over the hour we looked the better team and now face East Cork rivals Sarsfields in what should be a cracking final. The players and mentors have done well to reach a second league final in a row. No date for the final was to hand at the time of writing.
Team: Tommy Wallis, Patrick O’Mahony, Declan Ryan, Killian Burke, Padraig O’Shea, James Nagle, Finnbarr O’Mahony, Seamus O’Farrell, Paudie O’Keefe (0-1), Sean Hennessy(0-5F’s), Aidan Ryan (0-1), Conor Lehane (1-06), Luke O’Farrell (0-2), Stephen Moore (0-2), Paul Haughney.
Subs used: Kieran Mulcahy and Paul Barry.

Fe 16
Midleton’s Fe 16’s have qualified for the Premier 2 football league Quarter final v Clonakilty or Newcestown on a date to be decided.

Fe 13
Our Fe-13 hurlers made the short trip to Carrigtwohill on Sat last Oct 22nd to take on Sarsfields in the final of the Central Premier 1 championship. Being up against a very strong Sars side we knew we needed to start well and this we did playing into the slight wind. However we failed to convert a number of scoring chances that came our way in that first half. Despite only trailing by 2pts at the 20 minute mark our heads dropped a little in the last 10 minutes of the half where we conceded a number of very soft goals in particular and trailed at half time by 2-5 to no score. In the second half we never really got going well enough to fight our way back into the game and had to rely on very late scores to get ourselves on the score sheet, eventually losing 5-7 to 2-1. This was a disappointing display all round against an excellent Sars side who capitalised on our every mistake but the panel deserve a lot of praise and credit for their efforts in getting to the final and the tough battles against Na Piarsaigh, Blackrock and Carrigtwohill along the way.
Our Panel on the day was Padraig O'Brien (Capt.), Conor Evans, Adam Daly, Kevin Mulcahy, Garan Manley, Ryan McConville, Sean O'Leary, Christopher Shanahan, Ryan O'Reagan, Jordan Roche, David Mulcahy, Christian Daly, John O'Dwyer, Eoin Moloney, Sean O'Meara, Temitayo Abdullah, Tommy O'Connell, PJ Fitzgearld, Dylan Cahalane, Shane O'Brien, Ronan O'Donovan, and Conor O'Neill while Kevin Daly and Christopher were missing through Injury and Illness.
We now return to the big ball after a very long layoff with our Premier 2 Championship game fixed for next Sat in Ovens against Eire Og and we will continue to train in the Midleton College All Weather pitch every Tues night 6.50 to 8pm for the foreseeable future.
Our best wishes go to Kevin Daly who is currently recovering from a broken finger sustained in training earlier on in the month we hope to see you back sooner rather than later Kev.

Fe 10 training on Saturday mornings has finished for the rest of the year. The lads will still train on Tuesday evenings from 6.30pm to 7.30pm in the Ball Alley and the Side Pitch until further notice.

Fe 9
Fe 9 training on Saturday mornings has also ceased till the New Year. Fe 9’s will continue to train in Midleton College Hockey pitch on Thursday evenings from 6pm to 7pm.

Fe 8
10am Saturday morning 22nd of October saw the first arrivals from Newcastlewest for the hurling Fe 8 blitz between the Limerick hurlers and their counterparts from Midleton. By 11am 52 Fe 8 players – 26 from each side - had gathered at Clonmult Memorial Park for what was to be a great party of hurling. Similar to previous days and because of the numbers both panels were broken into three teams. The teams from Midleton played the teams from Newcastlewest so each player had three games. The hurling from the word go was fast and furious. All 52 players gave it their all for the hour and ten minutes of hurling they had to play in what could be described as challenging conditions. The players were brilliant but this time the spotlight should shine on the parents of the Midleton boys who served up a fabulous spread for everyone after the match in the pavilion. Congratulations and thanks to everyone involved with both teams for a great day-out.
