Mungret St. Pauls 4-13 Galbally 1-0
On a very sunny Wednesday, 30 May in Croagh the U-14 girls found them selves in another final, this time a Camogie one for the plate. This as it turned out was a very one sided scoring game but there was a lot of work from both teams on the pitch. There was some fantastic strikes, catches, blocks and free taking it was hard to believe they were only U-14.
Mungret St. Pauls were dominant from the off and used their great team work well calling for the ball and talking to each other, all passes were definite ones but Galbally were quick off the mark as well taking control of the ball on the pitch nut failing to get to the final destination as the Mungret St. Pauls backs pulled together and build up a very strong defense only letting one ball slip through to the net early in the game it was not going to happen a second time.
Wile Mungret St. Pauls won the plate it was team work and commitment that won over all. This team will grow stronger and be one to watch. Well done to all the players, coaches, parents and water girls who all had a part to play in this final.
Mungret St. Pauls 1-9 Crecora 3-6
In Mungrets pitch Crecora traveled to meet the U-16 Camogie players in the Semi Final of the league on Friday 27 April. The first half was a cat and mouse game going point for point, goal for goal. Near the end of the second half Crecora opened the game up with a second goal. Mungret St. Pauls never let their heads drop and brought the game back to a point when Crecora struck again with their third goal and the win.
Our Camogie club was privileged to have Cork dual star Rena Buckley present at our awards evening on Sunday 21 January. There was a fantastic reception waiting for Rena as she arrived with the great turn out of players and parents. Rena is the holder of 18 All Ireland medals a feat that is unmatched by any other GAA player in the county and spoke very well on her love of Camogie and Ladies Football, encouraging each player to keep up the training all year round even if it just to hit a ball against a wall. Well done to all our players and coaches for there achievements in 2017, our U-16 team were presented with their medals which they won early in 2017 while all players were honored by their coaches at each age group. There was an opportunity at the end of the night for our players to chat with Rena and get to lift the O’Duffy Cup. A big Thank You to all who organised this memorable night.
On Tuesday 22 August the girls took to the Village pitch to go shoulder to shoulder with Granagh Ballingarry. This was never going to be an easy match but it was a great match to watch and support. The Mungret St. Pauls girls pulled together and put in a huge amount of team effort getting in some great block downs and clearing the ball out the field. While the girls were able to work the ball around the field it must be mentioned the backs and goalie had a tough day but stood up to each challenge that was thrown at them and should be very proud of their team performance.
