Mungret St. Pauls 3-17 Patrickswell 0-10
In Mungret on Monday 12 August 2019 our U-16 hurlers played a great game, while it looked like the game was a very one sided affair, Patrickswell gave a great game and made our players work for every score.
Patrickswell opened the game with a pointed free, Mungret St. Pauls very quickly moved onto the scoreboard and did not stop until they had 5 points up. Both sides pointed again before there was a rush of red making a run from the half way line, eyes directed infront and only one thing on his mind, while the coaches were shouting to pass the ball on, the shot was struck and straight to the back of the Patrickswell net before the goalie realised what had happened. Both sides welcomed 2 pointed placed balls each and one form play but Mungret St. Pauls closed out the half with an additional 2 points and a goal from a short range free, going in 2-11 to 0-5.
The second half matched the first 30 minutes, Patrickswell pointing first and Mungret St. Pauls following it up with 3 points before Patrickswell stopped them to score their own point from a free. While the ball was near our goals Patrickswell tried to get the ball over the line but the defense were not letting anything past them so had to accept another point. Mungret St. Pauls took 5 chances on scoring only making 2 of them count. Patrickwells pointed one out of 2 attempts. Mungret St. Pauls saw their chance again and rattled the net for the third time, another 2 pointed placed balled ended the game with Mungret St. Pauls deserving winners.
This Mungret St. Pauls team remain unbeaten in the table with 2 more games to go, the next is in 2 weeks time against Knockainey in Knockainey.

We were honored to be chosen as the Limerick club to host the launch the All Ireland Hurling Championship. It was a day of smiles as our young players got the chance of a lifetime to meet their county hero’s on a day a lot will not forget, Tuesday 9 July 2019.

You may have noticed the busy hands around the place painting and cleaning up the pitches and clubhouse. The juvenile pitches are looking fantastic with the painted goal posts and new nets. We would like to thank Ger Keane, John Moriarity and their crew that worked hard to get the place looking like a new pin.

On the pitches we had a display of all our codes with U-8 hurling, football, U-14 Camogie and U-12 Ladies Football which showcased how great our club is in all aspects to the GAA President, John Horan and his family. These matches were going on as the RTE cameras were working their way around the pitches and interviewing the GAA names that arrived on the day from Tipperary- Brendan Maher, Laois- Joe Phelan, Cork- Seamus Hardney, Wexford- Kevin Foley and a player who needed no introduction to the children was Limericks Aaron Gillane. Mungret St. Pauls players were photographed with the county players and the GAA president and had an opportunity to get photographs and autographs. The county players were brought inside where Sky Sports Damien Lawlor took charge and introduced the Mungret St. Pauls Chairman, Mike O’Connell to the press and invited guests. Mike talked about how winning the Liam MacCarthy last year made a difference to the people of Limerick. John Horan, the President of the GAA was introduced next and while being a Dublin man was saddened to see Laois take Dublin out of the running, he wished each team the best of luck and went on to talk highly about our clubs future plans, our ambition to achieve success and our involvement with the community.

Damien then proceeded to introduce each player as they took their seat on the stage and a questions and answers to each player followed. Each player gave a great account of themselves and their counties. Once this was over Damien thanked everyone and the press were then allowed to present their own interviews with each player in the lounge and on the pitch. The Woodlands supplied a fantastic feast for all who attended which was, as always a splendid dinner with very tempting deserts.

We would like to Thank and acknowledge John Cregan and Mike O’Riordan on the Limerick County board for considering Mungret St. Pauls for this prestigious event and allowing our players to be part of it. We wish Limerick Senior Hurlers the Best of Luck in their fight for the Liam MacCarthy.

Our 3 day summer camp began on Monday 1 July and ran until Wednesday 3 July. We were delighted to have just under 100 children attending the camp with our own coaches leading the children in the fun filled days.Thank you to our supervisors who without them the camp would not be able to be run so easily- to Kevin, Wanda and Teresa. Well done to our coaches for keeping the children all entertained for the 3 days Ailbhe, Aoife, Brian, Ciara, David, Darragh, Eamonn, Kieran, Niamh, Odhran and Shauna. Each child who attended the camp received a pair of COBI socks and were delighted with the extra treat of icecream along with fruit and water supplied by Centra, Raheen who we thank for their support. It is great to see the children delighted to eat the fruit on offer.
