Midleton CBS honoured for Harty Cup win

 

MIDLETON CBS, winners of the Dr Harty Cup, are the February winners of the Rebel Óg Monthly awards sponsored by the Clayton Hotel Silver Springs and Cummins Sports, (award sponsors),  in association with the Evening Echo and Red FM, media partners.
The 2019 Harty Cup final is notable from a number of perspectives. Midleton CBS traditionally harnesses and nurture the hurling talent of pupils coming from just nine Juvenile GAA Clubs within the school’s East Cork hinterland.
The school prides itself on nurturing “home-grown” East Cork talent through the various age groups in schools competitions in Cork and Munster. No CBS Harty Cup-winning player to date has come from a club outside of this tightly knit East Cork hurling community.
Having recorded a draw with De La Salle and a win over St Flannans at the group stages, the team reached the final following victories over Our Lady’s Templemore and De La Salle College Waterford at their second meeting of the campaign.
In this year’s final Midleton CBS faced a school they had never encountered before in the Harty Cup competition. The paring was novel in that both teams were from Cork and had representatives from the Midleton Club in both of their ranks. CBC Cork were bridging a gap of 101 years since they contested the first ever Harty Cup Final in 1918 when they were defeated by Rockwell College.
Following a heroic tussle which saw the sides draw level on eight occasions during the course of the game, a goal for Midleton in the 53rd minute proved to be the defining score which put sufficient daylight between the teams and propelled the East Cork school to victory at the final whistle. Dylan Hogan from the Killeagh was presented with the cup and the East Cork boys were crowned Munster Champions for the fourth time in the history of the school.

Coiste regulations governing 13 aside competitions

A chairde,

As you are aware,  13 a-side competitions are for teams/clubs that are struggling to field 15 a-side teams and  Regulations are drafted to help protect the clubs that may be struggling for numbers. It has been evident in recent years that some clubs are using more than the required 18 in a panel and may well have been able to field in 15 a side.

Please find below the regulations and procedures that are being adopted across all regions for 2019 and your co-operation is requested in this matter.

1.14. Any club wishing to field a team in 13 a-side competitions must submit a list of players which may only contain a maximum of 18 players prior to the commencement of the relevant competition.

13. 13 a-side hurling/football

Clubs playing in these 13 a-side games are advised that they must not go outside the panel of players submitted. Any club found guilty of breach of this regulation shall forfeit any game won with teams fielding any players not listed in their application. A club fine will also be considered.

As you are aware, 13 a-side competitions are for teams/clubs that are struggling to field 15 a-side teams and the above Regulations are drafted to help protect the clubs that may be struggling for numbers. Your co-operation is requested to ensure this happens.

For 2019, the above Regulations will be implemented as follows:

  • Clubs are asked to submit their panel of 18 after they have played their first game in a 13 a side competition for that competition. This is to give clubs a chance to know what their panels are before submitting. These panels should be submitted by email to the Rúnaí of the relevant Region/Coiste not later than three days after the first game and before the second game is played.
  • Clubs must then stay within that panel for that competition. However, they may apply to replace a member of that panel to the relevant Region that governs that competition in the event that the club wishes to replace a member of the panel on a permanent basis. This could occur, for example, where a player incurs a long-term injury or where a member of the panel is no longer interested in continuing to play. A player removed from the nominated panel will no longer be eligible to play in that competition and shall not be reinstated to that panel.

East Region meeting

Please note the first meeting of the new season of the East Region will take place tonight, Wednesday, February 13, at 7.30pm at Midleton GAA Club.

Youth forum at the Páirc

 

 

 

 

CORK GAA have unveiled details of a forum for youth players who are aspiring to perform at senior inter county level in the future.
Páirc Uí Chaoimh will host a unique event on Sunday next, with an audience drawn from ladies football, camogie and the GAA’s development squads.
Players will get advice on nutrition, lifestyle management along with insights in to how county stars such as Rena Buckley and Stephen McDonnell deal with the good and bad days that inter county players encounter.
Chairman of the Cork Health and Well Being Committee, Des Cullinane, pointed out that many of our best club players come in to development squads and may not be the best players in this environment.
“Some players can find this difficult to handle and may suffer confidence issues.
“This forum aims to highlight coping mechanisms for players.
“Much of our training is centred around the skills of the game, team play and tactics.
“This forum aims to delve in to areas that traditionally would not be addressed within the squads structure but are just as important in terms of getting the desired performance on the field.”
“The forum will also focus on the adult mentors who look after the development squad programmes. Multiple All Ireland winning manager Eamonn Ryan will address the coaches on player management.
“Of particular attention here is around communication to players within squads but also those who are not selected and how to manage these situations.”
Cork GAA wish to thank RedFM for coming on board as media partners.
