Mungret Music Festival 2017
An unbelievable weekend in Mungret was enjoyed by many thousands of people as they all flocked to enjoy Nathan Carter, Hothouse Flowers, The Stunning and supporting act for both nights Tiny Giants. Mungret St. Pauls was really rocking over the two nights and we would like to take this opportunity to Thank everyone involved in putting together the site and taking it down along with all the volunteers who helped out over the weekend to maintain the running of the event, with out all our helpers the event would not have been as successful as it was. We would also like to Thank everyone who attended and enjoyed the nights.
Mungret Music Festival 2016
Last weekend has seen Mungret St. Pauls make its mark as a great music venue in the Mungret community. With months of planning and preparing the day finally arrived when we opened our gates to the thousands of festival goers. What a fitting setting for our inspiring line-up over the two days where we were thrilled to welcome Acoustra, Emma Lanford Music and Tiny Giants as the supporting acts for the main headliners, Hermitage Green and Nathan Carter. Both nights were a resounding success and enjoyed by all with a lot of requests to repeat it again next year. Well done to all the acts who entertained the crowd so well.
As always we need to send out a massive Thanks to all our generous sponsors (we will have a complete list next week). Our biggest THANK YOU goes to the people behind the scenes, the organising committee who did not sleep over the 3 days, the set up crew who put the site together, some people spent a week at the clubhouse getting the pitch ready for the gig. The catering committee who as always looked after all the volunteers very well keeping them topped up with tea and coffee. All the stewards that gave up their time to help make the concerts run smoothly and making sure all the festival goers had an enjoyable time. The clean up crew who arrived early on Sunday morning to take the site apart and bring the pitch back to its former glory. We can’t explain how much we appreciate all the time and commitment you gave to the festival, the weekend would be nothing without you all. To everyone who turned up and supported Mungret St. Pauls, if the comments on facebook are anything to go by we know you had an enjoyable time.
On Sunday the weekend ended up with another great success in the form of the Artisan Market which, with the sun splitting the rocks a lot of customers arrived to walk the footpath to check out the stalls. We would love to see this Market appear again.
We are sure the committee are already working on their next event and we look forward to see what they have planned next.
As part of our Mungret Music Festival featuring Nathan Carter & Hermitage Green we are hosting an Artisan Market on Sunday morning the 28th of August. We are looking to create a fun and friendly atmosphere slap bang on the grounds of our GAA club selling delicious culinary treats, handmade crafts & textiles. Our aim is to promote local, so If you are a budding stall holder and would like your opportunity to have a slot please make contact with Mike O Connell at 086-2437069 for more details.

Con and Annie Kirby Memorial 2016
In sport you are never told to accept second best, this was an exception for the first time Mungret St. Pauls are delighted to be runners up as Riverside Oscar ran a fantastic race on Saturday night. He was not expecting to be placed and as a club we were delighted he had brought us to the final as many times he was not destined to get through to the next round. It all came down to luck and the draw on the trap and the hot favourite although having a good trap had a poor start and Riverside Oscar took advantage and kept going.
He was beaten by another near outsider Droopys Roddick who ran for Bruree they won €10,000, with Mungret St. Pauls gladly accepting €5,000.
We, as a club have to acknowledge Noreen and JP McManus for their very generous sponsorship. It is always appreciated all the help Noreen and JP have done with the GAA clubs in Limerick. We were delighted they made it in time to see the final race as they raced from Aintree.
We would also like to wish Riverside Oscar all the best in his future races for his owners and trainers.
