Mungret St. Pauls 2-10 Galtee Gaels 2-1

This was a great game to watch with both sides putting their skill and determination into action on Friday 13 September in Mungret. It was a strong Mungret St. Pauls team that won the game but Galtee Gaels put it up to them.

Mungret St. Pauls wrote the score board for the first half as they had 5 points up before Galtee Gaels pointed from a well taken free. Mungret St. Pauls pointed the next ball but it was Galtee Gaels that eventually broke through the strong Mungret St. Pauls backs and hit the top left corner of the net to leave the pitch at half time 0-6 to 1-1, only 2 points in it to Mungret St. Pauls.

After the short break Mungret St. Pauls were working with the slight slope on the pitch as they came back to prove they were deserving winners as they netted the first ball which they followed up with 3 points before the second goal was scored for Mungret St. Pauls. Nearing the end of the game Mungret St. Pauls had shown how strong they were even when they put on subs another point was scored, Galtee Gaels in the last few minutes got awarded a penalty, an unstoppable shot but it did not change the outcome. Mungret St. Pauls go through to the Final.

Our under 8 and under 10 girls recently travelled to Cork to take part in the annual Passage West Ladies Football Blitz. The scale of this event is hugely impressive – over 120 teams and 1,600 girls from all over Ireland competed this year – the term “Monster blitz” barely does it justice. Organised and hosted by the Passage West club just outside Cork city, this trip has become a real rite of “Passage” for our girls in recent years!
There was a real sense of excitement and anticipation as our packed bus departed Mungret early on Saturday morning and headed for Cork. There was also considerable relief among the coaches and parents on board that the weather forecast looked good, and so it proved.
On arrival, we made our way first to the MSP “base camp” which had been established by some of the early arrivals from Limerick in the dugout beside the main pitch. Fully kitted out in the red and white, the girls then took part in the opening parade with all competing teams marching through the streets of Passage behind a pipe band, cheered on from all sides by crowds of supporters. Our girls looked resplendent in their red and white marching behind the MSP Club banner and sang their hearts out all the way along the route.
After the parade, it was time for the action to begin, and for the girls to show their footballing skills. Here, they were not found wanting. They excelled in matches against teams from Cork, Dublin and Tipperary. Their tackling, passing and shooting were as good as any on show, and it was great to see the girls’ confidence in their ability grow with each passing game. The teamwork, determination and sportsmanship from all sides was wonderful to see, as was the fantastic support from so many MSP parents who had made the trip. 
Trips to the disco that was rocking all day outside the Passage Club house filled the time between each match, and when the football is long forgotten, the friendships and memories forged there will be remembered. 
A pit-stop at SuperMacs in Mallow packed with returning teams from the blitz was the final act of a memorable day, and fitting reward for the hard work these girls put in on the day and on the training field on Saturday mornings since February. The count-down to Passage 2020 has already started…
(In the meantime, training continues on Saturday mornings, with the next big day out for these girls the Ahane Blitz on October 5th which will also involve our U6 girls who will get the chance to join in the fun!)

The cul camp this year for Mungret St. Pauls was ran very well with only a few hours of rain in the second day they were blessed with dry weather. We were lucky we had our newly purchased land behind the hurling wall where we could safely host the youngest groups while construction began for the music festival. Looking after our 300 children were 21 cul camp coaches our own Shane Barry and Patrick Dwane were accompanied by Micheal, Siobhán, Aishling, Alan, Maeve, Colin, Brian, Dylan, Aaron, Darragh, Neamh, Sive, Ava, Meadbh, Kevin, Emma Kate, Jade, Sophie and Aoife. Over seeing the coaches were Ollie Coffey, James Ryan and Liam Bourke. We would like to also thank our own helpers and volunteers during the week who looked after the loan of equipment and child welfare. The children had a fantastic week and we look forward to them returning back to the pitches in the next few weeks.
