Midleton Gaa, Camogie & Ladies Football Club News

05 February, 2017

Senior Hurling
Last Saturday evening the 4th of February, we played a challenge match versus the host team Bishopstown. We were kindly invited there for the official opening of their new floodlights.
It turned out to be a great game for both teams and for the time of the year it was very worthwhile with a strong Bishopstown team prevailing by a score line of 1-12 to 0-11.
Team: Tommy Wallace, Seadnaidh Smyth, Alywin Kearney, Elliot Mulcahy, Padraig O Keefe, James Nagle, Leslie Coughlan, Seamus O Farrell, Sean O Farrell, Padraig Nagle, Aidan Ryan, Eoghan Walsh, Cormac Beausang, Declan Ryan & Michael Abernethy.
Halftime substitutions were Darren Quirke, Gavin Bagnell, Billy O Shea, Alan Stanton , Luke Dineen and Ian Kennefick.
Training continues on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and at the weekend bar match activity.

Junior Football
Our footballers will get their East Cork League campaign off to a start next Sunday when we take on Erins Own in Caherlag @ 12.

East Cork Championship Draws
Last Thursday evening in the Gaa Club the Draw’s for the East Cork Championships were made, we were drawn to play as follows;
Junior A Football v St Catherines, U21B Football v Castlemartyr, Junior B Hurling v Sars and Junior C Hurling v Sars.

Inter County Hurling
The Cork senior hurlers will begin their Allianz Division 1A League campaign next Saturday evening against Clare in Pairc Ui Rinn @ 7pm, we wish selector Pat Hartnett and our club players the very best in this game. (The panel has not been announced yet). 

Hurling Helmet Information
The GAA would like to remind all players at all levels in all Hurling Games and Hurling Practice Sessions it is mandatory for, and the responsibility of, each individual player to wear a helmet with a facial guard that meets the standards set out in IS:335 or other replacement standard as determined by the National Safety Authority of Ireland (NSAI).
All players are advised that in the event of a head injury occurring, if the helmet being worn does not meet the standard or is modified or altered from the original manufactured state, they are not covered under the terms of the GAA Player Injury Fund. Further details at

Mouth guard Information
Since January 1st 2014, it has been mandatory for players in all grades to wear a mouth guard in all Gaelic football games and practice sessions.
The introduction of this rule has led to a drop of 37% in the number of dental injury claims made via the GAA Injury benefit fund, resulting from incidents in Gaelic football training sessions and matches in grades up to Minor in 2013. At adult level a similar drop of 39% has occurred, proving the benefits of wearing a mouth guard in reducing the risk of dental injuries. Key Points
 ~ All Gaelic footballers must wear a mouth guard in practice sessions and matches.
 ~ It is the responsibility of each individual player to use a mouth guard
~ A properly fitted mouth guard is the best available protective device for reducing the incidence and severity of sports-related dental injuries
~ Players can be sent-off in a game for not wearing a mouth guard
~ Players will not be covered under the GAA player injury scheme if they don’t comply with the mouth guard rule
~ No Mouth guard? No Game!

Mouth guard Exemption - A player can apply for a mouth guard exemption application from which can be requested by e-mailing , the player in question must provide supporting medical evidence clearly stating why a mouth guard cannot be worn.

Last Man Standing
This weekend saw the first round of fixtures in the competition take  place, victory’s for Chelsea, Spurs, Everton and an injury time winner for Man City kept the bulk of the 600 odd entrants involved for another week.
