On Friday 8 June a generous crowd were seated in the club house as the night got under way by Chairman, Mike O’Connell who was accompanied by Donal Fitzgibbon from the Mungret St. Pauls Development Committee, John Cregan, Limerick County Board Chairman and Mungret St. Pauls secretary, Brian O’Halloran. There was a run down of how the land eventually got to be in our possession after a long 11 years and we would like to acknowledge those on the committee, Margaret Horgan, Geraldine Dee, Jim O’Connor, Donal Fitzgibbon, Raymond O’Hagan, John Furey, Noel Downey and Gerry McNamara for all their hard work.
John Cregan added a few words on the hard work that goes on with the players on the pitches and hopes great things come from Mungret St. Pauls. We were delighted to have a wide number of our sponsors, councilors and politicians present on the night which ended up with a fine spread put together by the Catering Committee which we are thankful to for preparing the refreshments on the night.
Mungret St. Pauls 0-2 Newcastle West 6-6
Saturday 2 June was when the U-14 Football welcomed Newcastle West to Mungret in what was a tough game for our players. They were physically challenged for every ball but they never gave up throughout the game. Mungret St. Pauls were driving the ball well up the field only for Newcastle West to stop them and send the ball back down the pitch.
Mungret St. Pauls 4-13 Galbally 1-0
On a very sunny Wednesday, 30 May in Croagh the U-14 girls found them selves in another final, this time a Camogie one for the plate. This as it turned out was a very one sided scoring game but there was a lot of work from both teams on the pitch. There was some fantastic strikes, catches, blocks and free taking it was hard to believe they were only U-14.
Mungret St. Pauls were dominant from the off and used their great team work well calling for the ball and talking to each other, all passes were definite ones but Galbally were quick off the mark as well taking control of the ball on the pitch nut failing to get to the final destination as the Mungret St. Pauls backs pulled together and build up a very strong defense only letting one ball slip through to the net early in the game it was not going to happen a second time.
Wile Mungret St. Pauls won the plate it was team work and commitment that won over all. This team will grow stronger and be one to watch. Well done to all the players, coaches, parents and water girls who all had a part to play in this final.
Well done to everyone who took to their feet on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday saw our younger competitors take to the grass as they ran in a variety of races from wobblier to mini teen followed by an obstacle race.
On Sunday 13 was the main event the 6K walk and 10K run which was a great success, congratulations to the winners- women were Jessica Coyne, Hilkk Kontro and Donna Hayes. The men were Niall Shanahan, Colm Tucker and Declan Ginane. A very well done to the first club member back Breandán O’hAnnaidh, who after helping in the childrens run the day before played in the intermediate football match Saturday night and still had the energy to run and win the Pat Barron trophy which he accepted from Mike Barron.
A big Thank you to all our committee members and to everyone who helped out over the weekend as stewards, administration or caterers.
