On Sunday 18 February we had two teams out on pitches playing for their right to stay in the next stage in the Féile. First up we had the older team playing in Division 1 on the home pitch against Monaleen.
Mungret St. Pauls 0-4 Monaleen 0-2
The first half saw evenly matched teams with a draw at half time it could go either way in the second half but Mungret St. Pauls stood up to the challenges Monaleen gave them and brought the low scoring game in their favour bringing them forward to the Semi Final where they meet Newcastle West in Newcastle West on March 4 at 11am.
Mungret St. Pauls 2-3 Cappamore 1-3
This was a preliminary round in Division 3 where our U-13 players took to the field to play a strong Cappamore side, luck must of been with the players on the day as Cappamore tried many times to score it was the bar they kept hitting. With only a goal separating them Mungret St. Pauls were delighted to come off the pitch the victors. They now place St. Senans next.
Our Camogie club was privileged to have Cork dual star Rena Buckley present at our awards evening on Sunday 21 January. There was a fantastic reception waiting for Rena as she arrived with the great turn out of players and parents. Rena is the holder of 18 All Ireland medals a feat that is unmatched by any other GAA player in the county and spoke very well on her love of Camogie and Ladies Football, encouraging each player to keep up the training all year round even if it just to hit a ball against a wall. Well done to all our players and coaches for there achievements in 2017, our U-16 team were presented with their medals which they won early in 2017 while all players were honored by their coaches at each age group. There was an opportunity at the end of the night for our players to chat with Rena and get to lift the O’Duffy Cup. A big Thank You to all who organised this memorable night.
On Friday 5 January a great crowd gathered to help celebrate with the fantastic U-14 hurling and football players who won the county hurling, county and féile football and were runners up in the all Ireland féile football in 2017. We were delighted to have Aaron Gillane to present the medals and individualised framed photographs for each of the 36 players involved in the teams. A big thank you to Denis Carroll and Mary Hassett for representing Limerick Bord na nÓg on the night also. This was a very well run night with many thanks to the coaches involved Liam O’Gorman, John Rochford, Ken O’Connor, Martin White, Mike Brennan, Mike Fitzgerald, Tom Bridgeman, Joe Harrington and Billy Mangan. We also need to acknowledge the help from the kitchen and hall- Helen McKeogh, Martina O’Halloran, Mary Synnott, Siobhan O’Gorman and Ger Synnott. We look forward with anticipation to see what this year brings this group of players and wish them all the best of luck in their training and matches this year.
