Sale of Midleton Town
The 11th of December 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the announcement of the sale of last remnants of the Brodrick Estate in Midleton. In 1964 Lord Midleton, who had previously sold the land to Midleton GAA club, sold the remainder of his assets, incorporating some 300 properties/lease holdings in and around the greater town area, to a private consortium. This caused huge consternation in the locality leading to a civil dispute similar to the water charges dispute now ongoing.Following the announcement of the sale, the people of Midleton resisted efforts by the new ‘owners’ of the town to increase the cost of rents and leases on their properties and the dispute gained national headlines over the following two years. The disagreement saw local people defy ‘as one’ the attempts of the new owners to extract more money from them. Thereafter followed public meetings, marches, IRA intervention, attacks on people and property, changes in Legislation and finally negotiations involving all the parties before an eventual settlement of the dispute materialised almost two years later.To mark the occasion John Fenton will give a talk on the topic in Midleton GAA club at 8pm on Thursday 11th December outlining the background of the dispute and detailing how the agreement involving all parties was concluded.  A donation of €5 per person on the night on behalf of the Irish Kidney Association will be taken up. A special commemorative limited edition of ‘THE SALE of MIDLETON 1964-1966’  will also be available on the night @ €10.Come early, limited seating.   

Jackpot was €8,800, the numbers were there was no winner, the Lucky dip winners were , Paddy Fitzgerald, Frances Allen, Dina O’Donovan, Rose Crowley & Doreen Furlong, many thanks for your continued support.

Juvenile Notes

Street Leagues
Our Indoor training for the Street League will continue up to Xmas each Saturday morning at the Community Centre (Gaelscoil). The times are as follows; 10-11am 1st Class, 11-12 Senior Infants and 12- 1pm Junior Infants. New members welcome.

In the last game to be played at Pairc Ui Caoimh, before the redevelopment of the Stadium, our Fe 14 hurlers just came up short by a few points against Sars earlier today. This was our last game of a hectic season and our lads battled manfully right to the end in a game that could have been won by either side. This was hurling at its best. It was tough but fair hard hurling without a foul stroke throughout by either side. Midleton were slow to start and Sars had 1-1 on on the scoreboard before Midleton first score on 23 minutes. Midleton dominated to the break and tacked on three more points to leave it all level at HT. Playing against the breeze in the second half, Midleton had it all to do and score were level with 15 minutes to go when Sars pulled away with two unanswered scores. Both sides traded a point a side thereafter, but Midleton still down by two, just couldn't get the score that were required. We're all really proud of this group of players who have given us some great days during a very special 2014 for our Fe 14 Teams. In the course of the Year, we reached 6 finals and won three. The defeat was taken manfully by all players and we now look forward to the Midleton Juvenile Annual Awards night on Saturday 13th Dec and more silverware to come hopefully in 2015.
