The Munster Senior Cup initially took place on Tuesday afternoon in Cork where Midleton were drawn against a Garryowen side who out muscled their Limerick rivals Young Munster in the Charity Cup. However, due to some unforeseen circumstances a re draw took place on Wednesday evening. It was a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire as we have now drawn Old Cresent, former Division 2C rivals. This game will take place on Saturday the 9th of September in Towns Park.
Midleton vs. Cashel
Midleton are playing host to Cashel RFC on the 26th of August in the first round of the South Munster Charity Shield.
This promises to be a fierce and open game of rugby with both teams trying to showcase their newly developed skills from a gruelling pre-season.
The winners of the match will go on to play the winners of Sundays Well and Clonmel in the Final on the Second of September.
We believe that this is a great opportunity for players, new and returning,
to put their hand up for selection for the quickly approaching AIL season, the first game of which is a few short weeks away.
Time for Tilara was set up in order to raise money to provide some life changing treatment to allow her to live as normal a life as possible. Various initiatives have been set up to aid in the fundraising and includes such things as a Golf Classic “Tee off for Tilara” a bungee jump “Jump for Tilara” and “BBQ for Tilara” to name but a few of an extensive list, which can be seen here.
One of these events will be taking place in Towns Park on the 5th of August, “Tag for Tilara”. This is exactly what it says on the tin, a Tag Rugby Tournament. Please see the image below for more details.
We’re very sorry to inform you that it has been decided to postpone the Dinner Dance & Adult Awards Night. Despite a very successful event last year, numbers for this year’s function were not quite up to those levels. A major factor in this was Munster’s progression to the Champions Cup Semi-Final on Saturday, 22nd. We deeply regret the inconvenience caused to all those who have changed work rosters, purchased new outfits and made other arrangements in order to attend the event.
All of our tickets for the Munster v Saracens Champions Cup Semi-Final have now been allocated and we are not taking any more orders. We will be in touch with those who have reserved tickets as regards collection in due course. Thank you.
