Midleton GAA, Ladies Football and Camogie Club Notes

Allianz National League

Cork suffered a heavy defeat today in the re-scheduled match at Pairc Ui Rinn. Going in at half time the score was Cork 0-06 to Tipperary 0-16. It was an uphill battle in the second half and losing their Captain Seamus Harnedy to a red card in the 56th minute it proved too much for the Cork Side.  Final score was Cork 1-16, Tipperary 1-29. Conor Lehane scored 4pts on the day.

All Ireland Dr Croke Cup ¼ Final

Midleton CBS took on the Leinster Runners Up Colaiste Eoin in the ¼ final of the Dr Croke Cup. Nowlan Park was the venue last Wednesday. Midleton CBS started strong and seemed to settle well in the first half. Going in at half time the score was Midleton CBS 0-08 Colaiste Eoin 0-06. CBS once again started strong in the second half but Colaiste Eoin kept coming back them. Going into stoppage time it seemed that CBS were advancing to the final until Colaiste Eoin struck the back of the CBS net. Heart stopping stuff but the CBS lads fought till the end. Final Score was Midleton CBS 1-14 Colaiste Eoin 1-12.

Midleton Gaa were represented by Cormac O Brien, Sam Quirke, Ross O Regan, Gary Carroll, Kian Farmer, Arthur Nganou.

Cork Colleges Senior B Championship

Colaiste an Phiarsaigh 3-10 Kinsale 1-15

Colaiste reached the final of the Cork Colleges Senior B Hurling Championship with a deserved but hard-fought 1 point win against arch rivals Kinsale at the Pairc Ui Chaoimh 4G pitch on last Thursday. 

The game was played in gale force windy conditions and Kinsale lead by five coming up to HT. However Colaiste scored a penalty with virtually the last play of the half leaving just 2 pts between the teams at the short whistle on a scoreline of Kinsale 0-9 Colaiste 1-4. 

With the wind to their backs in the second half Colaiste made hard work of it early in the Second half and fell 7 behind until they got their act in order. In the space of 10 minutes they got 2 goals back and with the game at evens, the last chance fell to Colaiste midfielder Conor Linehan who pointed from distance to send Colaiste to their first ever Cork Senior Hurling Colleges B final. They now meet Mallow in the final. Date and venue to be confirmed. 

Midleton Players Fergus Wade, Christian Murphy, Dan O Sullivan, Evan Rowlands and Tim O Sullivan all played staring roles.

The lads are showing great enthusiasm and improvements. Remember new members always welcome. St.Patrick ’s Day parade is next Sunday and all FE6 boys are invited to walk with the GAA club.

Fe 10

As the club was a recent recipient of the Benchmarking 2018 award, we were invited to a reward day for the club to participate in a Hurling Blitz on the 4g Pitch in Pairc ui Chaoimh on Saturday. This was our first outing of the year and we travelled with a panel of 28, fielding three teams on the day, playing 6 games in total. Despite only having one training sessions under our belts after our winter break the boys displayed no shortage of effort and skill, more than holding their own against teams from Na Piarsaigh, Buttevant and near neighbours Killeagh. Congrats to the boys on what was a great performance and some promising signs for the year ahead. Thanks also to Rebel Og for the invite and to the GDA’s for organizing the blitz.



On Sunday our Fe 11's accepted with great joy the invitation to represent the club in the half time game for the Cork V Tipperary NHL game in Pairc ui Rinn. We travelled last week only for the game to be postponed so the lads were delighted when they got the go ahead this week. We had 33 players in the black and white representing the club with pride and great hurling ability in front of the biggest crowd they have played before. They played Valley Rovers in three games. Well done lads and hopefully lots of you will end up playing in many games in Pairc ui Rinn over the coming years.


FE 13 Premier 1 Football League

Another home match played away. Saturday in Trabeg we took on Nemo Rangers in the football league. The pitch was in excellent condition but having lost the toss we faced into a very strong breeze for the first half. Nemo made good use of the breeze regularly finding their full forward line with long accurate passes, the pressure on our defence was immense this pressure yielded a goal. We found it difficult to get out of our own half but we battled away to stay in the game. Nemo tagged on another three points two from play and one from a free, in between we squandered some good scoring opportunities, as halftime approached we put a great team move together which saw Carthaigh Cronin blast the ball past the Nemo keeper, unfortunately they went straight back up the pitch and goaled after Conor Morley had initially made a brave save. This saw us trail at halftime on a scoreline of Nemo 2-03 Midleton 1-0 . The second half began brightly we dominated possession but struggled to get scores and then Eoghan Frasier kicked over a fine point from play, Nemo then struck for what could be described as a fortuitous goal. The lads rallied, Daniel Garde and Thomas Dunlea pushed forward from the halfback line at every opportunity, Odhran Dennigen kicked over a fine point from play, then the match exploded into life when Odhran Rabbitte cracked a goal which gave us a huge lift, by now we were dominating, Paddy Walsh unleashed a rocket which screamed just over the crossbar for another point. Nemo responded with another point and goal. Then Paddy was pulled down for a penalty but we didn’t take advantage of this chance, Carthaigh then pointed from play another fine score, once again we left gaps at the back as we pressed forward, Nemo took advantage again in a breakaway attack they goaled. We didn’t give up and pushed forward Sean Mc Sharry was creating havoc for their fullback line , his pass found Odhran Rabbitte who struck a fantastic goal, Odhran Dennigen then pointed a free, another super point from Odhran Rabbitte concluded our scoring, we coughed up another point to Nemo, leaving a final scoreline of Nemo: 5-05 Midleton: 3-06 . Well done to our lads on a brave and battling performance in what was a highly entertaining game of football, we are improving with every match and that’s all you can ask of a group of players.

Panel: Conor Morley, Marcas Lambe, John Paul Mc Manus, Matthew Gregory, Daniel Garde, Darragh Egan, Thomas Dunlea, James Mc Sweeney, Eoghan Frasier, Odhran Dennigen, Carthaigh Cronin, Luca Brodkorb, Jack Foley, Paddy Walsh, Fionn Kelly, Adam O’ Connor, Sean McSharry, Odhran Rabbitte, Ben Fitzpatrick


Congratulations to our Fe11 hurlers (23 across 2 teams) who represented Gaelscoil Mhainistir Na Corann in the Primary schools 4th Class hurling tournament run over the last few weeks. They played in a qualifying tournament initially in February held indoor in Nemo Rangers and after winning that one of the teams progressed to the county finals day in Na Piarsaigh’s hall on March 5th. They was very little between the 4 teams that had qualified. Midleton played Rochestown in the semi-final winning 2 -0 with goals from Fionn Bohan and Liam Walsh. In the final they played Riverstown and were up against as they trailed 1-0 at half time but an inspiring team talk at the break from múinteoirs Christeoir and Sean resulted in goals from Max Murphy and Cian Lawton and a 2-1 win.

This triggered great celebrations and the presenting of the trophy to Harry Watterman by the Cork hurling manager John Myler. This is the 1st time for the Gaelscoil to win this tournament.

Commiserations to the girls who lost out in the final.

Junior League v Courcey Rovers

Junior League Game played in Ballinacurra against Courcey Rovers on Saturday last 09th March did not go in our favour and lost out on a score line 3:6 to 8 points. On paper the loss is 7 points but on the field of play this was a much tighter game. This was the first game of the year and it was a first Junior start for two of our younger players, Katie Horgan and Megan Kelly. We had only 15 players available to us for this game due to a few late pull outs which made things more difficult. Adding to the situation 2 of the girls played with injuries, but otherwise we coped well. 

The first half didn't go our way at all as we allowed Courceys down through the middle for 3 easy goals. We spent the first half switching players around looking for the right balance in the team. We think we got it right by half time. 

Half time Score Midleton 0:3 Courcey Rovers 3:4.

A bit of soul searching at half time was called for and the girls responded to the extent that the 2nd half was a different game, and we owned most of it. 

We scored 5 points to Courceys 2 and only for the Courcey Goal keeper pulling off some fine goal line saves plus 2 shots on goal coming off the crossbar the end result could be so different. After our first half performance, no one would question anyone walking away, but our second half performance shows that this team is capable of playing great football, and with a few more players added to the mix, we will be there or there about.

Team: Abby Quirke, Rayanna Power, Sadhbh Beausang, Lucy Wallace, Katie Horgan, Rhea Buckley, Charley Moore, Megan Kelly, Amy Quirke (capt), Rosin O'Callaghan, Claudia Kearney, Deirdre Corcoran, Deirdre Kenny, Ciara McGrath, Ciara Power.
