In it’s sixth year the Stephen Cahill tournament took place on Saturday 5 October where we welcomed 2 teams from Doorabarefield, Clooney Quin and Lissycasey in what was a very well run day. We would like to thank the sponsors Goggin Insurance Brokers who sponsored the trophies and medals. The first games got started at 10am with all 8 teams playing, each match was ran off well with a bit of rain falling to make the games a little bit more challenging. The players did not seem to complain as they waded in the muck. The two Mungret St. Pauls teams played some great football but were not strong enough for the visitors as the final was between Doorabarefield and Lissycasey with Lissycasey winning the Stephen Cahill trophy which was presented to the captain by Stephens son, Eoin who we were delighted could attend on the day. There were trophies for each team for the most improved player, David Buckley and Jamie Byrnes were the players awarded for Mungret St. Pauls. Thank you so much to our refs, coaches, umpires and a big Thank you to all the parents who provided sandwiches and treats for the players and parents and to our ladies who helped out in the kitchen serving the tea.
Mungret St. Pauls 1-18 Monaleen 1-11
After a wet day on Saturday the U-16 hurlers were delighted to see sunshine for their final and the pitch in the LIT Gaelic Grounds was in great condition when they came toe to toe to familiar faces in Monaleen on Sunday 29 September 2019.
These two sides have met often and have never failed in giving a very good game. Mungret St. Pauls got their footing right first and lead the majority of the match with Monaleen leading only once Mungret St. Pauls regained the lead and were duly rewarded when they got presented the Shane Hourigan cup.
Mungret St. Pauls started scoring straight away with 2 frees, Monaleen tried to get themselves on the board but misjudged their shots. There was one more point from play for Mungret St. Pauls before Monaleen got started and pointed 3 balls in 3 minutes, The next two minutes had Monaleen in the lead with one point and Mungret St. Pauls knocking them back in the second minute. Mungret St. Pauls continued on their scoring streak as they pointed 3 more times in as many minutes, this was followed by a run at the Monaleen goals and a strong strike to hit the net. Mungret St. Pauls had an eight point lead but they knew not to let their guard down. Both sides scored a point before Monaleen got a lucky break and in a close shot hit the ball past our goalie. Coming into the break Mungret St. Pauls pointed twice more while Monaleen only scored the once.
In the second half the breeze had had changed direction and begun to go against Monaleen. The next eight shots were all from frees with Mungret St. Pauls pointing their first and widing their second . Monaleen also sent 2 frees to the wrong side of the uprights but they pointed their next one. Mungret St. Pauls finishing off the frees with two out of three on target.

Mungret St. Pauls 0-12 Fr. Caseys 1-7
This was a battle to the final whistle for both sides as the leader had changed through the match and the game was on level score for a long time near the end but it was Mungret St. Pauls that got awarded the Gerry Molyneaux trophy in Mick Neville Park on Sunday 22 September 2019.
The game started with both sides scoring a point. Fr. Caseys then took an early lead as they netted a close range free, Mungret St. Pauls suddenly found themselves as they went 7 points unanswered. In the closing stages of the first half Fr. Casey’s pointed from another free to leave themselves 3 points behind.
The restart was slow as Fr. Casey’s attacked the goals but the ball was returned to play and pointed. It took Mungret St .Pauls another while to get back into the game as they pointed from the field. It only took Fr. Casey’s two minutes to close the lead to level the game, there was a lot of play on the field while both sides missed the targets for a quarter of the match. Mungret St. Pauls eventually broke out and pointed, another wide from Fr. Casey’s while Mungret St. Pauls hit a safety point through the uprights. In injury time both sides pointed one more time in the last few chances to take the win.

Mungret St. Pauls 2-16 Bruff 0-12
In Fedamore on Thursday 19 September our U-16 hurlers played a lovely game in the sunshine to bring them into the Shane Hourigan Final. The U-16 hurlers play like a well run clock, each cog works independently to each other but they work well together as a team to make the ball move up the field and take their scores when they can. This team have won many medals already over the years and are looking to top it off with the U-16 hurling medal.
Thank you to Kieran Bolger for stepping in and taking photographs of the match.
