Anniversary Senior Hurling County Champions

06 October, 2016

Next Sunday afternoon the Cork County Board at the County final in Pairc Ui Rinn will honour the Midleton 1991 Senior Hurlers as the Jubilee team , honouring the 25th anniversary and also in the program the 100 year anniversary of our 1916 Senior hurlers win will be acknowledged.

Having lost the semi final in 1915 to Redmonds the Midleton team despite the “Political conditions” of the times trained diligently to be ready for the 1916 campaign. In the first round they defeated Charleville, in the semi final they eventually got to play Blackrock and in the Cork Athletic grounds before a huge crowd Midleton avenged the defeats of previous years by winning comfortably on a score line of 5-02 to 2-03. In the County final they defeated Shamrocks after a very close encounter by a single point.
Midleton -  Jim O Connell (capt), Jack Grandon, Pats Cahill, Dan Twomey, Tom Deasy, Michael Kearney, Jeremiah Egan, Gerald O Shea, Bertie Walsh, Jimmy Ramsell, Dave O Keeffe, Tom Twomey, Dick O Gorman, William Twomey & Johnny Desmond.

Avondhu, Carbery, and Ballyhea were all defeated to secure a final place against Glen Rovers. This was the first championship meeting of the clubs in modern times and after a vigorous challenge Midleton deservedly clinched the title on a scoreline of 1-17 to 1-08.
Midleton – Ger Power, Michael Boylan, Denis Mulcahy, Sean O Brien, Peter Smith, Pat Hartnett, David Quirke, John Fenton, John Hartnett, Vincent O Neill, Ger Fitzgerald (capt) , John Boylan, Padraig O Brien, Michael O Mahony & Kevin Hennessy.
