The town of Midleton has been severely flooded by Storm Frank and unfortunately our club has not escaped its wrath. The mini area, second pitch and main pitch are under water to varying degrees and while the clubhouse is sound thus far, it may not remain so for much longer. The water will eventually subside, the pitches will return to their former excellent condition and whatever other damages accrued will be repaired. The club may be a second home to many of us but it’s not a primary dwelling nor family home and as such we must find some perspective. So many friends and neighbours have lost much in the recent floods, our thoughts and prayers are with them.
