U13 Austin Stacks Tournament

We travelled to Tralee last Saturday to compete in the Austin Stacks U13 Football Tournament. Over 15 teams taking part and it was highly competitive with teams from Cork, Kerry, Galway & Kildare. We played games against Nemo Rangers, An Gaeltacht and Kerins O’ Rahillys. Even though we lost these games, we played our best football in the last game against Kerins O’ Rahillys. The boys learnt a lot from the experience especially the work rate and skill levels by the teams on display. A big thanks to Dave Foley (Wild Geese Restaurant), he was manager on the Day with Sean Ahern and he sponsored McDonalds for the players afterwards which was a nice treat.
Team; Ross O’ Carroll, Rory Mullins, Barry Donnellan, James Fleming, Mark Barrett, Liam Ahern, Billy Dervan, Adam Dore, Eoin Collins, Stevie Barry, Daniel O’ Connell, Aarron Morrow, Mark Galvin, Conor Mangan, Evan Cusack, Kevin Morrow, Thomas O’ Donaill

U-14 hurling SEMI FINAL

Mungret St. Pauls 2-6 Monaleen 2-10

On a sunny Saturday, 7 September in the LIT Gaelic Grounds the first of the U-14 hurling Semi Finals took place with Mungret St. Pauls and Monaleen. These 2 teams have met many times over the years and they have always had a strong game, this was no exception. Mungret St. Pauls were first to point but Monaleen did not wait long to match the score and take a 3 point lead in the first 10 minutes. A pointed free got Mungret St. Pauls back into the game but silly fouls gave Monaleen their next 3 points. In the sixteenth minute there was a run from the middle of the field dropped into the Monaleens square after a scramble on the goal line the ball was helped over the goal line, bringing Mungret St. Pauls back into the game they followed it up with another 2 points to level the game. Another chance for Mungret St. Pauls resulted in their second goal and first lead in the game. There was some great team work from Mungret St. Pauls but no results came from it. Just before half time Monaleen put pressure on our backs as they went for their own goal which was brilliantly denied only for the rebound to be knocked into the net to level the game as they teams split for half time.

The second half had a slow start as both sides had most of their scores in the first 25 minutes, there was a lot of play on the field with the ball going both ends with no scores. Both sides eventually pointed a ball each before Monaleen struck again and hit the net. The pressure was kept on our backs but nothing resulted as our goalie rescued the ball again. With 3 minutes left on the clock Monaleen edged ahead again with a pointed free, Monaleen were trying to hammer in goals but each had the hurley of our goalie there to stop it. The game ended with both sides pointing one last ball each, Monaleen took the place in the Final. This was a testing game for our players as they were attacked on every move they made, they will learn from this and bring it with them to next year when they are U-15.

U-16 Hurling

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.

Limerick Players

With a few days to get over Limerick loosing out on the All Ireland final it has to be said it seems all messages are of thanks to the Senior hurlers for giving all Limerick GAA supporters some of the best months where they have celebrated with the players and management.

Mungret St. Pauls 2-14 Claughaun 3-3

The Division 3 team traveled up the road to Claughaun. These two teams were evenly matched in age, both being made of mainly 15 and 14 year old players.

This was a great way for the team to finish off their group stages they are sitting in second place on the table having won 4 matches and lossing only 1. They now await the last game to be played in August to see where they are left on the table as Bruff is under them with one game loss also but with a better scoring average if they win their next match they knock Mungret St. Pauls into third place. This team are prepared and ready for their own league which is not yet fixed due to the Minor hurling teams success.

Well done to our U-12 hurlers who were delighted to be able to play on the same pitch as their Limerick heros. This was a very well run event where there were teams from many different counties. Mungret St. Pauls were first matched up against Holycross Ballycahill from Tipperary. In this game Mungret St. Pauls proved slightly too strong for their competitors. The second match was against Braodford in Clare, this was a very tight game with only one strike of the ball separating the two sides. The last match was against EireOg, Ennis in Clare, Mungret St. Pauls started slow in this match but made up for it by the final whistle drawing the match. Well done to the players for a great display of hurling, to the coaches for their encouragement and dedication. Thank you to Noel Hartigan and his band of young referees.

U-16 Hurling

Mungret St. Pauls 2-18 Monaleen 2-15. 

This was a showcase of skill from both sides in Monaleen on Monday 15 July. It was a real cat and mouse game with both sides taking a lead at different stages.

It was close all the way with Mungret St. Pauls taking over the lead with a superb goal after Monaleen led through a few early frees. Mungret St. Pauls retained the lead at half time, after their second goal to go in at the break leading by 2 points. 

The lead was swapped a few times in the second half with Monaleen scoring their own 2 goals. Mungret edged ahead in the last 10 minutes and despite some late pressure from Monaleen, they managed to see it out.

Juvenile Medal Presentation

In Mungret St. Pauls clubhouse on Thursday 2 May we welcomed the U-13 and U-15 Football, U-14, U-15 and U-16 hurling teams to the clubhouse along with special guest for the night, 9 time all Ireland winner and Kilkenny hurler Tommy Walsh, representing Bord na nOg was Mary Hassett. The night ran very well, in Tommy’s speech he mentioned the upcoming exams and how a GAA player should approach them, he said that most parents would tell you to cut back on the sport and do more study “ I say NO”, balance them out, stay doing both, use your sport to take a break from studying. The top quote on the night- GAA is like a wardrobe, whatever you put into it you get back out of it.

Tommy also advised the players to practice what your good at, don’t admire the guy who is able to take frees and try be like him, you may not be a free taker but a great player who can catch the high ball, practice catching the high ball and you can lay if off to another player, the game is a team sport and is best when made of different skills. The club presented Tommy with various gifts; he was presented with Cobi club clothing items, a gift suggested by Pa O’Brien, a bag of sliotars for the team Tommy coaches in Kilkenny and as Tommy enjoys a cup of tea a hand crafted tea cosy. The medals were presented and the night finished off with a question and answers before the tea and coffee was served.

We would like to thank everyone on the committee for organizing this event and for everyone who attended on the night.

Kilpeacon were taking their frees with a few great scores from play, keeping their score going while Mungret St. Pauls were shooting from all angles and all forwards had a point by the end of the first half. Half time score was Mungret St. Pauls 2-10 Kilpeacon 0-9 
Mungret St. Pauls reopened the game with a point, another chance was hit off the cross bar but went back out field. Each team scored a free and then Mungret St. Pauls had a chance of a third goal but reactions were too slow and the ball went onto a Kilpeacon hand. Mungret St. Pauls scored another 3 points, 2 from frees, the rest of the games scores came from frees for both sides Kilpeacon added another 4, Mungret St. Pauls added another 2. In the last 4 minutes of the game there was a lot of pressure put on our backs as Kilpeacon came down hard on them to try get another goal but they were denied and Mungret St. Pauls had the last puck of the game as the ball went the far side of the uprights. They are out next Friday in Caherdavin against Na Piarsaigh.

U-16 Division 3 Football

Mungret St. Pauls 2-7 Kilteely Dromkeen 4-15

In Mungret on Monday 22 April 2019 our second U-16 football team lined out against a slightly taller team of Kilteely Dromkeen. They did not get off to the best start but never gave up. They gave a great display of football throughout.

Kilteely Dromkeen lead the way throughout the game and had 1-9 scored before Mungret St. Pauls saw their first point in the last few minutes of the first half which they followed up with a second point. It was not all plain sailing for Kilteely Dromkeen in the first half as the Mungret St. Pauls goalie pulled off two saves for what should have been definate goals for Kilteely Dromkeen, the backs were working hard on moving the Kilteely Dromkeen players out and forcing them to send the ball to the wrong side of the uprights.

The second half was a better game for Mungret St. Pauls as they started out with a free pointed while they won the next kick out they sent the ball off coarse. Kilteely Dromkeen hammered back and added on a goal and 5 points but Mungret St. Pauls powered a reply with their own goal, Kilteely Dromkeen tried their luck on scoring but Mungret St. Pauls were the next to add to their score with another goal. It was a point a piece and then Kilteely Dromkeen scored their third goal followed up by their forth they then played another point and it was Mungret St. Pauls to close out the game. Mungret St. Pauls did this in style as they ball was hit off the cross bar on the rebound it was caught by a Mungret St. Pauls player kicked but hit off the back of a tall defender who sent it to another Mungret St. Pauls player who third time lucky sent the ball over the bar. Another 2 points from play and the game was finished.

This was a great game to watch from the young team, some of these players are out again on Wednesday night for the U-14 Championship.

Mungret St. Pauls 1-16 Na Piarsaigh 0-13
This was a great match with the score board being leveled a few times though the game it was Mungret St. Pauls that pulled ahead in the final minutes in Mungret on a cold but dry Monday night 15 April.
The first half started strong for Mungret St. Pauls but they sat back and Na Piarsaigh caught up to their score. This was a lively encounter with both teams displaying some great hurling throughout. Both sides battled to the half time whistle with the score board stopped at a level 8 points each.
The second half Mungret St. Pauls kept punishing the Na Piarsaighs backs and were eventually rewarded for their determination with a goal. Na Piarsaigh notched on 4 points to Mungret St. Pauls one to draw the game again. At this stage it was still anyone’s game. A quick point from Na Piarsaigh brought them into the lead but the turning point of the game was a very well taken long range free for Mungret St. Pauls which drew the score again. This was then followed up by 4 points from frees and 2 from play to win the game for Mungret St. Pauls.
The U-16s see them selves out against Newcastle West away on Monday 29 April.

Our U-14 players had a great day in Mick Neville Park on Saturday 13 April with an early start having the first match at 10am against and evenly matched Doon. Finishing on equal score of five points each.
The second match against Garryspillane was a great boost for the team as they easily took the win, not letting Garryspillane get any score in.
The last match of the day was against Kildimo Pallaskenry who had lost a match and drew a match, Mungret St. Pauls were on the better footing going into the game and put a lot of effort into their play. It all paid off as they drew by the final whistle. Mungret St. Pauls 1-6 Kildimo Pallaskenry 2-3. They now regroup and prepare for the Semi Final having topped their group.
Sunday 21 April was another tough day for our U-14 players as they had an early start in Rathkeale in the Semi Final of the Féíle hurling against Na Piarsaigh. These sides meet each other in the U-13 final last year with Na Piarsaigh taking the trophy.
Mungret St. Pauls knew what to expect and did not disappoint in their performance on the day, they were up against a stronger side but they put everything they had into the game. Na Piarsaigh went on to win the A final. There is not much of a break for the players as they prepare to start into the championship matches in May. We would like to thank them and their coaches for all the effort they have put into preparing for both the hurling and football féile’s and wish them the best of luck in the championship .

Great praise is due to all our U-10 footballers who represented Limerick and their club at the annual Austin Stacks Tournament Saturday 27 October. Some great skills and teamwork shown. Eventual winners Naas showed us the way in our first match with fierce tackling and blocking that we had not seen before. They proved their skill in the 2 following games against 2 kerry teams to leave them second place in the group. After a break they played in the 2nd place final which resulted in a draw, a toss of a coin meant Mungret St. Pauls got to take home the trophy.

U-16 Football FINAL

Mungret St. Pauls 0-7 Fr. Casey’s 2-6

On a cold night under lights in Mick Neville Park on Wednesday 24 October when the U-16 footballers stepped onto the pitch to play Fr. Casey’s where there was more scores earned in the dying minutes of the first half to the earlier 25 minutes played. The second half was a better game but the U-16 hurling final started to show in the tired feet of the Mungret St. Pauls players.

The one thing Mungret St. Pauls won in the game was the cross bar challenge which is the way they started the match followed by a wided free. There was a lot of missed opportunities and bouncing the ball off the posts, this could have been a different game for Mungret St. Pauls. It took 5 minutes to get the first score and another 10 minutes before Mungret St. Pauls was to mark up another point. There was a lot of pressure on both backs but Mungret St. Pauls made more attacks, one of the shots came back off the cross bar with another close encounter straight into the hands of a Father Casey’s perfectly positioned back, it was after this ball was sent out the field that it was returned for Mungret St. Pauls second point. The ball then spent a few minutes around the Mungret St. Pauls backs with Fr. Casey’s being stopped by a great save by our goalie. The ball was sent 4 times into the field behind the goals with Fr. Casey’s wides. What looked like a great slow start for Mungret St. Pauls when on the 27th minute they pointed a free to give them 3 points to nothing. Fr. Casey’s suddenly started to play a stronger game and came back into the game in the last 2 minutes scoring 2 points, they also then hit the cross bar during the injury time. Fr. Casey’s kept hammering our backs but they were on point with their blocking and denying any more score in the first half.

The second half was a more on target half, Mungret St. Pauls pointing their first free of the half. There was danger when a Fr. Casey’s player headed straight for the goals but a bad tackle in the square gave them a penalty, our goalie got his had to the ball but the rebound was kicked in by the Fr. Casey’s goalie who took the penalty, Mungret St. Pauls were left on the back foot. A point for Mungret St. Pauls boosted the boys a bit before Fr. Casey’s replied with a pointed free.  The Mungret St. Pauls feet were getting tired and mistakes were being made. Fr. Casey’s were winning most of the kickouts with Mungret St. Pauls left contesting the ball. Fr. Casey’s put up another 3 points before Mungret St. Pauls struck back again with what was their final point of the game. Fr. Casey’s were awarded 4 frees in the final minutes of normal time but only secured one point. With our goalie down Fr. Casey’s took their opportunity to go for goal, Mungret St. Pauls backs stopped the first attempt but a second shot confirmed Fr. Casey’s win. This team just were unable to keep the momentum going as they ran out of energy, a lot to ask from them but they gave it what they could.

Team on the day; Casey Tanyi, Darragh O’Connor, Ciarán Uwatse, David Hassett, James Killian, Frank Corcoran, Colin Rochford, Fintan O’Sullivan, Billy Molyneaux, Brian O’Meara, Odhran O’Dwyer, Daragh Bridgeman, Liam Lynch (0-4, 0-1 from free), Darragh O’Hagan (0-1, 0-1 from free), Conor Galvin (0-2), Dermot Moloney, Conor O’Halloran, Ciarán Kenny, Mark Moroney, Oisin Moss, Tom Morrison, Dylan Scanlon, Conor O’Malley, Harry Page, Cathal Joy, Jack McCarthy, Kieran Bolger.

U-14 Division 3 Football Shield Final

Mungret St. Pauls 3-4 Pallasgreen 3-9

This was a physical game with our U-13 players up against 14 year olds, they did not let their height get to them and played a great game right up to the final whistle.

Pallasgreen got off to a good start scoring 2 points before Mungret St. Pauls denied their first attempt on a goal.A second chance on a goal was saved again by Mungret St. Pauls but the rebound was delivered to the back of the goal to put a 5 score difference between the two teams. On the seventh minute of the game Mungret St. Pauls got a free that they pointed. Mungret St. Pauls went for a chance for goal but it was saved, a second attempt was struck off the upright and landed at the feet of a Mungret St. Pauls player that kicked the ball into the back of the net to bring them back into the game. A point a piece before Mungret St. Pauls attacked the goal again on a rebound from a goal save the ball was seen to the Pallasgreen goal, this was the first lead Mungret St. Pauls had in the game but was not to last long as a point for Mungret St. Pauls and a goal for Pallasgreen leveled the playing field. 2 wides for Pallasgreen was followed up with a free pointed for them but just before they separated for half time, Mungret St. Pauls slotted another point over the bar.

Pallasgreen directed the game in the second half with Mungret St. Pauls filling in the gaps. Pallasgreen scored a goal to restart the second half. Mungret St. Pauls foiled a second attempt for a goal for Pallasgreen. Pallasgreen scored 3 points to widen the gap. A free for Mungret St. Pauls developed into their third goal and final score of the game. Pallasgreen scored 2 final points from frees to end the game.

U-16 Hurling FINAL REPLAY

Mungret St. Pauls 2-10 Ballybrown 0-12

Mungret St. Pauls took a firm hold on this game in Claughaun on Sunday 21 October when they played Ballybrown for the second time for the Shane Hourigan U-16 Hurling Cup. Mungret St. Pauls had one slip in concentration but regained their composure to secure the title they deserve.

A free for both teams opened the score for both sides. 2 more points a piece had the teams equaled again. Mungret St. Pauls pointed a free to take the lead, this was joined with a point from play but Ballybrown came back and went 4 points unanswered to bring them into the lead. With time ticking down, a sideline cut was neatly placed toward the goal and was gently urged into the back of the net to bring Mungret St. Pauls a point ahead. The sliotar saw both ends of the pitch, both going wide. A direct shot to a waiting Mungret St. Pauls forward put the ball to great use and saw it shot into the Ballybrown goal. One more point for Ballybrown ended the first half.

Ballybrown came out strong and a great sideline scored the first point for Ballybrown, they kept the pressure on our backs but their next shot was forced wide. Mungret St. Pauls took control, they drew the goalie out of position, passed the ball infront of the goals but a Ballybrown back got their hurley to the ball as it was directed to the goal. Mungret St. Pauls stayed strong on their pressure but Ballybrown blocked their attempts on scoring. Ballybrown were on the back foot and needed goals to get back into the game. A Ballybrown free dropped infront of the goal but Mungret St. Pauls backs worked together to clear the danger ball. 10 minutes had passed since the restart and it was Ballybrown who got the next point. Mungret St. Pauls still had the want to win this game and a point from play kept a 2 point difference between the teams. Both sides scored another 2 points each which brought them into the final quarter. Ballybrown were not to know but that was their last point of the game eventhough they tried to put the ball into the net, all our backs were in top form stopping everything that came their way. 2 pointed frees for Mungret St. Pauls left them with a comfortable 4 point lead with minutes left on the clock. It was a battle to the end but there was rejoicing when the final whistle was blown as Mungret St. Pauls were declared the Shane Hourigan U-16 Hurling County Champions. The first time this cup was won in 2015 was by Mungret St. Pauls and there are 6 families that have players on both of these teams. A lovely touch by the captain of the team, Conor O’Malley as he accepted the trophy from Shane Hourigans mother was handing the trophy to Eamonn Flahive who picked up an injury in the last Ballybrown match that ruled him out of the replay. Well done to this team who put in a lot of work and effort through the year and it has all paid off.

U-16 Football Semi Final

Mungret St. Pauls 5-8 Monaleen 1-4
 
A very one sided game in Mick Neville Park on a very wet, Saturday 13 October 2018, when these two sides last met it was the first game of the championship with Mungret St. Pauls wining 1-12 to 1-3.
 
Monaleen were first to score, Mungret St. Pauls reply was 2 points. Monaleen worked the ball hard and put the ball through the uprights. It was Mungret St. Pauls that held the play book as a goal at the right time separated these two teams. Mungret St. Pauls were more direct on their scores as Monaleen overworked the ball and struggled to take a score. Monaleen only scored another point and a goal in this half as Mungret St. Pauls continued to score. An opportunity to score arose and a goal was the outcome on the kick out, Mungret St. Pauls won the breaking ball and returned to put the goal back into the net again. Mungret St. Pauls next point was a hand pass over the bar, one final point finished the first half.
 
The rain was not letting up a bit like the Mungret St. Pauls players as they progressed their score even more in the second half. Mungret St. Pauls added on another 2 goals and 4 points. Monaleen were unable to score until the final countdown of minutes when they only managed one final point. The U-16 footballers now play Fr. Casey’s in the final.
 
Team on the day; Casey Tanyi, Darragh O’Connor, Ciarán Uwatse, David Hassett, James Killian, Frank Corcoran, Colin Rochford, Fintan O’Sullivan (1-0), Billy Molyneaux (0-1), Brian O’Meara (0-1), Odhran O’Dwyer, Daragh Bridgeman (0-1), Liam Lynch (1-6, 0-1 from free), Darragh O’Hagan (2-0), Conor Galvin, Dermot Moloney, Conor O’Halloran, Ciarán Kenny, Mark Moroney, Oisin Moss (1-0), Tom Morrison, Dylan Scanlon, Conor O’Malley, Harry Page, Cathal Joy, Jack McCarthy, Kieran Bolger.

U-13 Football FINAL

Mungret St. Pauls 3-3 Fr. Casey’s 2-5

A hard fought battle in Mick Neville Park on Saturday 13 October in the early morning saw 2 great teams give everything they had to get across the finish line, Mungret St. Pauls were the victors by the final whistle.

It was a cold morning with the threat of rain throughout the game in Rathkeale. Fr. Casey’s were quick off the mark and putting pressure on our backs with our goalie pulling off a great save. Mungret St. Pauls played their way up the pitch to open the score with a great striking goal. There followed an unlucky strike as Fr. Casey’s hit the uprights twice and Mungret St. Pauls hit the goal post. Fr. Casey’s first score on the 8th minute of the game from a free was followed up with another 2 points. A forced substitution for Mungret St. Pauls led up to a second goal. Mungret St. Pauls kept the pressure on but Fr. Casey’s goalie got the ball out of danger for them just before half time.

The second half was as good as the first half with Mungret St. Pauls slotting over their first point as an opener. Fr. Casey’s were fighting back and scored goal and point to level the game before Mungret St. Pauls replied with their third goal along with 2 more points to bring them further in the lead. With 10 minutes left in the game the pressure was on both teams, Mungret St. Pauls to keep the lead and Fr. Casey’s to make a come back. It was the latter that finished the game as Fr. Casey’s put every effort into getting the ball to their forwards, they converted 2 of their 5 chances, widing 3 frees they scored their second goal and an additional point which left them a point shy by the full time whistle which came just in time.

These 2 sides will meet again over the coming years but Mungret St. Pauls take the victory for 2018 as they traveled home with the U-13 County Football cup and title. Well done to the players, mentors and parents. Thank you also to the supporters on the day.

U-14 Division 3 Football

Mungret St. Pauls 6-6 Blackrock 2-3

This was a great game for Mungret St. Pauls players who showcased a great display of football and teamwork in Mungret pitch on Sunday 7 October in a windy but dry day in the Semi final of the shield.

The game started well for Mungret St. Pauls who had a lot of possession and were creating a lot of chances but not taking these early on. Once the shooting boots were adjusted they got going and were the main scorers in the first half with 4-4, Blackrock only scored 2 points.

In the second half, as expected, Blackrock contested the game a bit more but Mungret St. Pauls played some competitive football to overcome an older and more physical team. Blackrock scored the first 3 scores, a point and 2 goals. Mungret St. Pauls closed the game out with another 2 goals and 2 points. This result means Mungret St. Pauls now go through to the final of the shield. Before they manage that they face into the U-13 football Final on Saturday in Mick Neville Park at 10.15am.

 

U-16 Hurling Final

Mungret St. Pauls 0-16 Ballybrown 0-16
These sides have met before many times so are no strangers to each other. A draw was the best result for this close game of chasing points in Claughaun on Saturday 6 October.
Mungret St. Pauls started both halves with the opening score but Ballybrown matched the score in minutes from a free. Mungret St. Pauls wided their next 2 chances and gave away a free which Ballybrown sent to the wrong side of the upright, they kept the pressure up on the backs but there was a great save pulled off by the goalie. Ballybrown got into their stride as they scored the next 3 points, Mungret St. Pauls paused their scoring streak with a pointed free but Ballybrown were back scoring again getting in the next two. A point a piece before Mungret St. Pauls came back into the game securing the next 3 points, leaving a point difference, a poor finish from both sides followed Ballybrowns last point of the opening half as it closed with 2 wides from Ballybown and one from Mungret St. Pauls.
Mungret St. Pauls got in early with their next score but Ballybrown were not being quietened too easy and took on the next 2 scores. Mungret St .Pauls were fighting to stay in the game going back to a point behind. Another 2 points each until a well worked ball was sent soaring over the Ballybrown crossbar to level the sides. This saw a change in the Mungret St. Pauls side as they upped their game a bit more for the last quarter of the game. A free given to Mungret St. Pauls produced the second time in the game for them to take a lead but this was short lived and Ballybrown leveled then went one up. Another free evened the game for Mungret St. Pauls. Another point a piece before Mungret St. Pauls missed the target. Ballybrown tried three times to go ahead but each failed. As the clock was ticking down Mungret St. Pauls took on their last point of the game but they gave away a free, preventing a goal for Ballybrown to see the game into a replay.
The replay should be another great match for the supporters and we would encourage all our members to please come out and support the players in trying to take home the U-16 cup

Mungret came away with a one point win. Up next was Legion of Killarney who Mungret beat 8-9 to 1-2. Our final group game was a ten point win over John Mitchels Tralee. We then went on to play a much fancied Salthill of Galway in a the A semi final. Salthill were a very physical strong team but again Mungret playing some inspired football ran out 3-7 to 1-5 winners. This meant we were to travel back to Tralee on Sunday for an 11am throw in. Our opponents were Ballyboden St Enda’s of Dublin were a strong physical side who put it up to our boys and after a highly competitive first half the score was 5-3 in Ballybodens favour. Unfortunately our exertions of the previous day started to take its toll and we struggled a bit in second half going down 3-7 to 5 points. Special mention to Tom Lloyd who was named man of the match. Overall it was a great achievement for this group to be runners up in the A final something that has not been done by Mungret in the past. A big thank you to all who supported the team over the two days and we can look forward to more success from this outstanding group of players.

U-14 Hurling Shield Final

Mungret St. Pauls 3-10 Ballybrown 0-7

Friday 14 September brought both teams to Askeaton when both sides looked even at first Mungret St. Pauls stepped up their game and held Ballybrown off when close to the goals.

Mungret St. Pauls were first to point with Ballybrown equalizing minutes later, this was repeated again. The sliotar was worked up the field and into the hands of the waiting forward who smashed it into the back of the Ballybrown net. This was the changing point in the game when Mungret St. Pauls took off and saw out the first half with a further 2 points to widen their lead.

The second half, Mungret St. Pauls put the pressure on the Ballybrown backs again going for a shot on goal they were unlucky to hit the crossbar twice before eventually taking a point. The first pointed free for Mungret St. Pauls came before Ballybrown got in their own 3 pointed frees but this was not a strong enough come back as Mungret St. Pauls quenched them with another 2 points. A change of fresh legs on the pitch saw what could only be described as an assassination on the goals with 2 quick shot goals were scored accompanied with a point for Mungret St. Pauls with Ballybrown closing out the game on their last 2 points. This was a great result for this energetic team as they accepted the shield from Mary Hasssett the Bord na nOg Secretary.

U-12 Football

Mungret St. Pauls travelled to Mick Neville park last Saturday to contest the group 3 u12 football league finals which comprised of 4 teams. We played Drom-Broadford in the opening match and even though they were a strong physical team we matched them for skill and determination. The game ended in a draw but in extra time Drom-Broadford scored two early goals which proved too much to claw back. The 4 teams now played two finals and we faced off against Galbally who had lost to Ahane in their opening match. With the day being so hot, there was a real chance our boys would tire especially after the extra time played earlier and with no break to the final. But that wasn’t to be the case. We defended very well and on the other side we got the goals at the right time. The game went to the wire though and we just held on in the end by a few points after some frantic efforts to keep out serious goal threats from Galbally. Well done all players who togged out in the day.

U-15 Football FINAL

Mungret St. Pauls 2-18 Newcastle West 1-4

A very one sided game that was evident Newcastle West were down a few key players when they played in Adare on Sunday morning 24 June.

Within 4 minutes Mungret St. Pauls had scored their first point and goal. It was looking obvious that Mungret St. Pauls were the stronger team on the field as kickouts were being won by Mungret St. Pauls with Newcastle West having to work really hard to achieve a score which came for them in the fifteenth minute of the game by a way of a goal but it was a bit late in coming as Mungret St. Pauls had already racked up 2-6 with only one point coming from a free.

It was a clean game with Mungret St. Pauls on target for most of their scoring chances Newcastle West had wided their last chance just before the break as Mungret St. Pauls left the first half 2-11 the better.

The sun was beginning to take its toll on the players as the game took a slightly slower pace, a better half for Newcastle West in their play as they attacked each ball, Mungret St. Pauls were still splitting the posts with the ball with 4 on the trot before Newcastle West replied with a point. A penalty was awarded to Mungret St. Pauls to add to Newcastle Wests pain but the goalie got a great touch to the ball and sent it wide, this seemed to lift Newcastle West as they went on to score in the last 5 minutes of the game to bring their total to 1-4. Mungret St. Pauls took their last 3 points from play.

Noone likes to win on a one sided game but hats off to Newcastle West who did not give up through out and stayed fighting for the ball all game. Well done to our players who used their head in the game and used a free men when they could get the ball to them.

U-15 Hurling FINAL

Mungret St. Pauls 3-11 Bruff 2-13

It took extra time to finish this game and it all came down to the last minute before supporters could breath on Friday 22 June in Claughaun on a very hot day.

A point a piece opened the game followed by cheers from the Bruff supporters as they hit the net, but Mungret St. Pauls kept their heads and played the game knowing they were 3 points behind made them work harder and they pulled ahead with skill as they went 2 goals and 2 points unanswered, the second goal came from a well taken penalty. Bruff were working on their scores as well but were expertly denied a goal by Mungret St. Pauls goalie.There was a share of scores for both sides and just before the half time whistle Bruff sent the ball toward our defense which ended in the net bringing them back into the game and a draw at the end of the first half.

The second half was played more on the field with both sides only scoring 3 points a piece to draw again. Extra time declared the boys had to muster more energy as the game was hotting up on the pitch and both teams were looking to win the game. This was a tight game with little going astray it really was coming down to who got into a scoring position and took their chance. Mungret St. Pauls scored their 3 points in the first half of extra time on the trot with Bruff only managing a point either side.

A mere point a head Mungret St. Pauls had to hold their minimal lead to through the last 10 minutes of the game and get everyone working on the pitch. This was a nail biting part of the game as it looked like Mungret St. Pauls had lost their steam as Bruff powered on to 2 points ahead and Mungret St. Pauls at their crucial time were sending their shots to the wrong side of the uprights until the ball was sent to the right position and the strike was defiantly the strongest one through the whole game as the ball passed 4 Bruff players to burn through the back of the net, we think they are still looking for the ball. Mungret St. Pauls were back to their point a head and all eyes were on the ref as the clock ticked down until the final whistle and joy as the game was finally over and Mungret St. Pauls declared winners of the U-15 Hurling League. Well done players.

U-12 Hurling.

Last Thursday saw the completion of the very successful U-12 Spring Hurling League held in St. Patricks GAA grounds, under floodlight. Over the four weeks of matches all players on the night got to play two matches. We had two teams. In the early part of the league the teams were split into an A and B team and the last two weeks we balanced the teams in a way that would make all four games on the night competitive. The Group 3 team played Murroe Boher, Ballinacurra Gaels and Kildimo Pallaskenry. In Group 1 the team played Murroe Boher, Monaleen and St Patricks and on the last night played Ballybrown and Na Piarsaigh. Thanks to all players and parents who turned up over the duration of the Spring League and braved some of the cold nights to support the players. This was very successful as the coaches were able to provide two games every night to all players, players were played in different positions to their normal position and we were able to move players between the two teams. U-12 training has now moved to the Juvenile Pitch on Tuesday’s at 6pm to 7pm starting March 28.

At half time Mungret St. Pauls went in with 1-1 on their sheet. The second half was a slightly different game the players came out and gave it their all with every additional goal or point to Mungret St. Pauls was seen as a bonus as the defenders were battling down the St. Patricks forwards.

Mungret St. Paul 3-16 Kildimo Pallaskenry 1-10

In the first competitive match for the U16s we were host to Kildimo Pallaskenry where the visitors showed their presence on the pitch with the first score, Mungret St Pauls replied only for Kildimo Pallaskenry to come back again with a goal. Mungret came back with the same reply and it was at this point where Mungret St. Pauls pulled themselves together and started to take charge. Going in at half time the home team had the advantage with a four point lead.

This was a very physical game with everything put into getting the sliotar into the Mungret St. Pauls forwards. This worked well and they came out with a great win.
