Minor Football

Mungret St. Pauls 5-8 Monaleen 5-6

Unlucky for some Friday 13 April was a good day for our Minor footballers when they played Monaleen in Mungret. Having not met them since the final last year Mungret St. Pauls were expecting a good match. By the first half Mungret St. Pauls had made a sizable lead and went into the second half too comfortable as Monaleen took advantage and put the ball in the back of the Mungret St. Pauls net 5 times which left the score looking like a tight match.

Mungret St. Pauls 1-8 Claughaun 0-7

On Friday 30 March 2018 in Caherdavin our Limerick Motor Centre sponsored Intermediate Footballers lined out against Claughaun where they were to face into a tough physical game. Mungret St. Pauls had a point up shortly after the throw in and held this lead throughout. Claughaun had the wind in the second half but sent a lot of their scores wide with Mungret St. Pauls defense coming under attack all strikes on goal were expertly diverted off. The ball was passed through the lines up the field to find a resting place in the back of the Claughaun goals to secure Mungret St. Pauls win.

U-21 Football

Mungret St. Pauls 1-3 Rathkeale 0-13
This has been a hard Championship for our players. Their first match was at the end of October and then they had to play 2 matches in 3 days.
Mungret St. Pauls started off on the back foot on this match as Rathkeale held a 4 point lead before Mungret St. Pauls put up their first point followed closely by their second point. Rathkeale struck another 2 points before Mungret St. Pauls drove the ball up the field and settled it well into the back of the net. There were missed chances on both sides and a great save by our goalie kept the Rathkeale score to 4 points ahead at half time.
In the second half Rathkeale held possession of the ball with Mungret St. Pauls only getting one break to score successfully. They halted Rathkeale in their attempts on scoring only getting 4 points in this half.
Thank you to the players and mentors who now take a break until the new year when the U-21 Hurling resumes.

Minor Football Semi Final

Mungret St. Pauls 3-11 Newcastle West 3-9
It took extra time to see these two teams separate on Friday 22 September in Mick Neville Park, after a tight and well fought game, where the goals were changing the leaders in the game.
Newcastle West opened the game with a goal while Mungret St. Pauls reply was a point but, they soon changed the game when they followed that up with a goal and another point only for Newcastle West to score their second goal and reclaim the lead once more. Mungret St. Pauls did not hold back and after a tussle at the Newcastle West goal were awarded a penalty which rattled the net for Mungret St. Pauls second time handing the lead back over. Newcastle West passed a few balls over the Mungret St. Pauls cross bar to close the first half on a draw.
With a lot of the scores coming fast in the first half there was still a few more to come in the second when Mungret St. Pauls reconnected the ball to the back of the Newcastle West goal to hand back over control of the score board. With the lights coming on both sides the players kept adding point to the board with Mungret St. Pauls keeping the lead the last goal of the game equaled the score again minutes before the final whistle. 
With another game waiting to be played on the sideline extra time was confirmed and the teams joined each other again on the pitch. Cramp was being to set in on some of the players legs and the coldness of the night set in. The winners would be the players who can stay on their feet and get the points over the bar. Mungret St. Pauls were putting everything into the game and edged ahead with 2 points they held on tight to this until the final whistle. 
Mungret St. Pauls now face Monaleen in the Premier County Final.

Intermediate Football

Mungret St. Pauls 1-10 Claughaun 3-13

In Clarina on a blustery Friday 18 Aug, Mungret St. Pauls did not have a good day as Claughaun proved to be a better team on the score board.

The game started strong for Mungret St. Pauls when they took a quick lead with a goal, to be their only one in the game. Claughaun came back punishing Mungret St. Pauls with 4 points and a goal unanswered. Mungret St. Pauls were not getting many chances letting only one go wide before they struck a point just after the 20th minute of the game, this they followed up with another quick point, with a free pointed for both sides the end of the first half closed with Claughaun adding on another 2 points.

The second half Mungret St. Pauls had the breeze, but this could send the ball in the wrong direction. Again Mungret St. Pauls came out strong closing the gap with two points from play, Claughaun were not resting and passed another 3 balls over the bar while Mungret St. Pauls were playing simple ball they were getting their points in until Claughaun tucked another ball in behind our goalie. Claughaun held possession of the ball while Mungret St. Pauls were tirelessly defending they took points when they could but were unfortunate to not get the ball cleared up the field enough to break Claughaun.

This leaves Mungret St. Pauls 4th in the group table with Glin and Bruff still to play who are currently under Mungret St. Pauls.

Mungret St. Pauls 0-5 Monaleen 1-13
Monaleen opened the scoring on this match and followed it up with 6 more unanswered points before the 25th minute of the game where Mungret St. Pauls successfully struck the ball between the uprights for their first point of the match and the last score before the half time whistle.
Monaleen came out strong again in the second half building up another 2 points and a goal until Mungret St. Pauls struck again with their second point of the game. Monaleen were quick in their response sending over 3 points in minutes. Being 13 point behind Monaleen the only thing Mungret St. Pauls could do was defend the goals which they did well blocking down Monaleens chances and managed to pop over another 2 points and finishing the game off with their 5th point.
They still have 2 more games to play in the County Premier Minor Football Championship.

Intermediate Football

Mungret St. Pauls 1-10 Galbally 3-9
The Intermediate match took us to Hospital on Friday 4 August. The sun was out for the match to see Galbally steer their way through to a 5 point win.
A free for Galbally at the opening of the game directed the way the rest of the match was to play out with Mungret St. Pauls being on the wrong side of the frees for most of the game but Galbally getting more names in the refs book. A few minutes into the game and Mungret St. Pauls had the ball seen to the back of the Galbally net ,with Galbally pushing hard on our back they were denied 2 chances on goal while popping over 3 points to Mungret St. Pauls 2. Mungret St. Pauls still held a narrow lead until Galbally were third time lucky to get the ball into the net. By the end of the first quarter Mungret St. Pauls passed another 2 balls over the bar to bring the game to a draw 5 minutes later and a point a piece the game came to a draw for the last time. Two frees pointed and two more from play for Galbally saw the game to the half time score.
Straight into the second half Galbally broke through the Mungret St. Pauls defense and smashed the net. Mungret St. Pauls had the wind in this half and were the only team to get a chance on points sending 7 balls wide and also notched up a square ball while only converting 5 points in this half. Mungret St. Pauls had narrowed the lead but Galbally ended the this half the way they started it with their last score of a goal. This saw the game to the end with Mungret St. Pauls playing a game of football while Galbally crowded them on the field.

Glin 2-14 Mungret St. Pauls 0-11

In Glin on Tuesday 11 July the footballers took to the field to face into a demanding game where they were blocked at each challenge.

On the leader board it looks like Glin only played 2 of their matches previous to Tuedays match while Mungret St. Pauls playing all 4 of their schedualed matches wining 3 of them they were challanged in this match and it was the goals that Glin scored that were the obstacle Mungret St. Pauls just could not get over.

Junior B Football

Ballinacurra Gaels 2-12 Mungret St Pauls 1-11
Thursday 29 June in Ballinacurra was the meeting place for the Junior B footballers when they played Ballinacurra Gaels. It was not the best of nights for a football match but Mungret St. Pauls started off strong with a well placed ball in the home goal. This was cancelled out with a penalty for Ballinacurra Gaels. Mungret St. Pauls had the breeze advantage but did not use it as best they could and only finished the half with a point lead.
The second half saw Mungret St. Pauls struggle as they were kicking into the breeze and the kickouts were not getting where they were ment, leaving us to work the ball up the field without loosing possession. A second goal was needed but Mungret St. Pauls were unsuccessful in this endevour, taking the loss.

Mungret St. Pauls 0-16 Galtee Gaels 2-4
A great day and performance from the footballers in what was our celebratory day for the Clubhouse celebration on Saturday 1 July.
It was a slow starting game for Mungret St. Pauls with Galtee Gaels scoring first it took Mungret St. Pauls 10 minutes to get the ball over the cross bar but made up for it by following that with another 3 points in as man minutes. We took possession of most of the kickouts and were very unlucky when the ball was send for a goal to be hit out and rebounded back by a Galtee Gaels player into the net, taking any lead we had built up away. Mungret St. Pauls stayed working away managing to get some balls over with the wind coming across the pitch causing a few wides for both sides. Half time saw the game on an even score with plenty more left for the second half.
Mungret St.Pauls were quicker off the mark in the second half getting in a quick point followed by 5 unanswered points. We then made the mistake of gifting a penalty to Galtee Gaels early on in the third quarter to be converted. Mungret St. Pauls made use of the wings and worked the ball up the pitch well, with the younger members of the team making a name for themselves.
It was great to see this was played by both teams more like a football match should be with plenty of high ball and kicking.

While some difficult shots were pointed it was sometimes the easier ones that disappointed. Overall a great result in the starting game.

On Saturday 25 March the Limerick Motor Centre sponsored Intermediate Football team traveled to Claughaun, we were a depleted team and Claughaun proved too strong for our players who put in a great game but unable to put a ball in the net was the disadvantage. A disappointing loss for the team.

U-21 FOOTBALL

Our U-21 footballers closed the 2016 season on a high note, winning the county title against Galtee Gaels on Friday night at Martinstown. It was a very cold December night on a heavy pitch which required hard work and a big effort by all the players to bring home the cup. It was particularly pleasing for this squad as so many of them had played in the U-21 county finals of the past two years where we had lost to Adare and Galbally.
The team opened brightly, getting on top in midfield through Eoin O’Doherty and Killian Ryan with good support from wing forwards Danny Taylor and Colm Moran, which lead to multiple scoring chances. The forwards kicked a series of good points from distance, all from play, with Adam Storan, Eoin Ryan, Ronan Beatty, Stephen Scanlon all contributing but unfortunately we did not avail of a couple of goal scoring opportunities as they came which would have built a winning lead out of all the possession. The lead was 6 points to nil after 25 minutes when Galtee Gaels came back into the game strongly, started to dominate possession and kicked a number of good scores of their own to leave the halftime score a narrow lead at 6 points to 5 for Mungret St Pauls. Sean Mullane and his back line of Cathal Shinnors, Chris Dunford and Eoin Galvin, Brian Barry, Conor Garvey & John O’Donovan had done very well to ensure a goal was not conceded.
Following a couple of switches, we opened the second half brightly, gaining more possession and as a result we had the first score. It was nip and tuck from there for the third quarter until the fresh legs provided by subs Declan Brown, Adam Barry, Michael Uwatse and Eoghan Killian introduced to the forwards gave us an attacking advantage as we stretched the lead out to 3 points. Cathal Shinnors kicked the score of the game, involved in a move all the way from his cornerback position then kicking it over from the right corner with help from the post and crossbar. To their credit Galtee Gaels continued to battle and had a shot from a long way out whistle just over the bar to narrow the lead to 2. Eoghan Killian restored the lead with a fine run from midfield to the 13 topped off by chipping over a point to leave the score at 11 points to 8. Both sides battled right to the final whistle as our boys held out to claim the trophy which was presented to our captain Ronan Beatty by John Cregan on behalf of the county board.
Thanks to referee Michael O’Flaherty and his team who officiated fairly and sensibly in the difficult conditions.
The team and scorers were as follows. All 11 points were scored from play.
Sean Mullane, Cathal Shinnors (0-1), Chris Dunford, Eoin Galvin, John O’Donovan, Conor Garvey, Brian Barry(0-2) , Killian Ryan(0-2), Eoin O’Doherty, Danny Taylor, Adam Storan (0-2), Colm Moran, Stephen Scanlon (0-2), Ronan Beatty (0-1), Eoin Ryan, Subs used; Declan Brown, Eoghan Killian (0-1), Adam Barry, Michael Uwatse
The following players had played in earlier rounds of the championship; Ciaran Laffey, Peter Harrington, Niall Goggin, Ryan Minihan, Michael Fitzgibbon
Mentors for the team Bosco Ryan, PJ Garvey, John O’Donovan and Liam O’Connell.
We look forward with renewed confidence to the 2017 season after our club footballers at U-16, minor, U-21 and intermediate all gave a good account for this year, reaching three county championship semi-finals, losing each time to the eventual winners, and one successful final across the four squads.

U-21 Football

Mungret St. Pauls 5-11 Granagh-Ballingarry 0-7

A Chilly but dry Sunday 11 December in Adare Mungret St. Pauls where a depleted team yet again with a lot of players committed to work and family occasions but they took to the pitch all the same. There were a lot of younger players on the pitch for Mungret St. Pauls and they quickly settled into the game not letting Granagh-Ballingarry getting much ball to their forwards. A goal and two points were notched up very quickly. By the end of the first half a hat trick of goals match with 9 points had Mungret St. Pauls well in the lead against Granagh-Ballingarrys four points. The second half saw a slower start where it took 16 minutes before either team scored this was Granagh-Ballingarry getting in one of three points in this half. Mungret St. Pauls were playing into the sun and send a few balls wide of the goals but made sure the goal balls were well placed in the net. This was a great game for the younger players which brings them through to the final next weekend where they face Galtee Gaels in  Kilbreedy at 8pm on Friday 16 December.

U-21 Football Semi Final

Mungret/St Pauls 2-12 St Patrick’s 1-09
With temperatures dropping this match saw a lot of fumbles and the bounce caught us out a few times. This is the first time this team have gotten out all year on Friday 25 November. They worked well together working the ball up the field and defending, quite a few missed opportunities saw them working very hard to get in the points. In the second half they upped their game and brought the play to another level. They took a lead but had to try maintain it as the time ticked by.
They now go into the City Final. Well done guys.

Minor Football

Monaleen 3-8 Mungret St. Pauls 2-6

Mungret St. Pauls traveled to Mick Neville Park on Monday 4 October where they were met with Monaleen. Mungret St. Pauls had a very slow start in the first half with Monaleen dictating the play. Mungret St. Pauls got a point in just before the half time whistle while Monaleen had built up a 2-7 lead.

The scond half saw Mungret St. Pauls come to life and getting in a goal and a point before Monaleen knew the game had begun. The gap kept closing with Monaleen not getting any chance on scoring leaving Mungret St. Pauls to dictate play bring the gap back to only a goal dividing the two teams but in the dying minutes of the second half Mungret St. Pauls conseeded a goal to reply with a goal of their own but they just did not get the gap closed down and after working so hard to close in on Monaleen they almost got there but the final whistle saw an end to the Minors hard battle. Well done to all the players and mentors we look forward to seeing this high standard of football again next year.

Intermediate Football

Adare 1-7 Mungret St. Pauls 1-6
To lose any match is hard but to lose a Semi final by one point after fighting hard to bridge the gap is heart breaking and this is what has happened to our hard working Intermediate Footballers. In Mick Neville Park on Saturday 24 September.
Adare had the advantage in the first half with the frst score of a lucky chance goal, followed by a point before Mungret St. Pauls replyed with a point. Half time held a low score of only 1-2 to 0-2. There was a lot of work done in the field but Adare sent a lot of chances wide which MSP’s were glad of.
The second half saw Mungret St. Pauls cpme out and put the first point to the board. Yet again it was slow scoring but the goal by MSP send a renewed energy into the players and they kept up the pressure on the Adare team and near the end of the game a lovely kick saw the ball sore over the Adare goal to bring both team to a draw. With the clock ticking it was either next score wins or go on for extra time. Unfortunaly it was Adare sho got the next touch to the ball and directed it over the bar. A disapointing result but the guys can be happy with their performance and achiving a place in the Semi Final.

In Bruff on Monday 29 August the Intermediates met their match when they faced Galbally.

Minor Football

Mungret st. Pauls 0-9 Adare Gaa 1-4
Adare traveled to Mungret for the minor football on a dry but windy Friday 12 August. The first half saw Mungret St. Pauls put in some great defensive play keeping Adares score to a mininum of only 2 points. Mungret St. Pauls did not use the wind to their advantage but did have a 4 point lead at half time, the second half needed an extra 20% effort put in with Adare having the breeze on their side. Throughout the game there was great blocking and use of space. Both teams seemed to be of equal fitness but Mungret St. Pauls had the edge and came off the pitch winners. They have 2 games left in the group and need to win both to progress.

Limerick Motor Centre Intermediate Football 29 July 2016

Mungret St. Pauls 1-20 Cappamore 2-4
With a bit of a cross wind the Limerick Motor Centre sponsored Football team met with Cappamore in Claughaun. When these two teams met last year it did not end too good for Mungret St. Pauls.
The match started with a goal for Cappamore with in a minute of the throw in. This shook the Mungret St. Pauls players up and it took them another few minutes to settle into the match and start to play as a team. When they got into the grove it turned into a lovely game. They dominated at the Cappamore kickouts winning them and sending the ball back for a quick score. This continued on for the rest of the match where they worked with each other and with the fresh legs of the subs it kept the game running. Well done on a great result.

Limerick Motor Centre Intermediate Football

Mungret St. Pauls 2-12 Bruff 1-6

On Saturday 30 April the intermediate footballers picked up two more points in the county championship with a good win over Bruff at Claughaun. Following a narrow win over Claughaun the previous week they are at the top of the group table with Galbally on four points.

Mungret opened brightly and had the majority of possession in the first quarter from a dominant midfield. However a number of missed chances meant this was not reflected on the scoreboard. The breakthrough came when a quick team move lead to Peter Harrington being taken down by the keeper for a penalty which Denis Giltenane goaled with a neat finish. Three good goal chances had been saved during the half, the halftime lead of 1-7 to 0-4 could well have been much more.

The game turned for Bruff early in the second half when a couple of points and a goal had narrowed the gap to two points with a scoreline of 1-8 to 1-6. Our team responded well and picked up the pace to create a ling series of chances, scoring 1-4 and keeping the opposition scoreless in the final quarter. The second goal was scored by Jack Walsh finishing another good move. Scores from play accounted for 1-12 of the total scored.

The team lined out; James Roche, Eoin Rice, Eoin O’Doherty, Stephen Dilworth, Michael Fitzgibbon (0-1), Killian Ryan (0-3), Cian O’Doherty, Michael Cussen (0-1), Muiris O’Scannel (0-1), Sean Moran (0-2), Breandan O’hAinnaidh (0-1), Keven South, Adam Storan (0-2), Denis Giltenane (1-0), Peter Harrington (0-1), with subs used Ciaran Laffey, Jack Walsh (1-0), Padraic Reilly, Gary Carroll, Ryan Minihan

U21 Football County Final Mungret St Pauls 1-11 Galbally 2-09 Dec 2015

The 2015 playing season came to an end on Saturday in Rathkeale as we faced Galbally in the County U21A Football final. Unfortunately it ended in defeat as we lost out by a single point on a scoreline of 2-9 to 1-11 in a close contest between two evenly matched teams.

Galbally scored first and had early possession until a fine goal by Michael Fitzgibbon got us off the mark. Galbally replied with a goal of their own and the lead changed on a number of occasions up to half-time at which stage 4 points from Peter Harrington and 2 points from Adam Storan saw us lead by the narrowest margin on a scoreline of 1-6 to 1-5.

Galbally stuck for a second goal at the start of the second half to take a two point lead but again our players showed character and fought their way back to level the game. Our opponents had a good spell in the middle of the second half and built a 3 point lead with 5 minutes to go. Our players made a strong push to recover the game and points from Peter Harrington and Killian Ryan narrowed the gap to a point once more. However we missed a few chances to level the game and the final whistle saw Galbally take the trophy.

We saw another good team performance with every player contributing during the game and as we are left to rue such a narrow defeat we can still look forward to competing at minor, under21 and intermediate football for 2016 with a deeper squad of players who have made significant progress during this year.

On behalf of the players and management we want to thank all those who turned out to support the team on Saturday, they gave great encouragement to a young team.

The squad was; Sean Mullane, Chris Dunford, Luke O’Connell, David Brosnan (capt), John O’Donovan, Michael Fitzgibbon, Ciaran Laffey, Eoin O’Doherty, Killian Ryan, Peter Harrington, Adam Storan, James Cusack, Brian Barry, Brian Considine. Sean Moran, Subs used were Declan Brown & Ahmed Hammad, further subs were Stephen Scanlon, Ronan Beatty, Alex Potter, Cathal Shinnors, Ciaran Heagney.

 

U21 Football City Win November 2015

Our U21 football Squad won the city championship at the weekend with a deserved win over Kildimo-Pallaskenry on a scoreline of 5-5 to 0-9.

Taking early control in the half-back line and midfield, they created a number of scoring chances and put three points on the board before their opponents replied with their first score. They extended the lead when a fine team move ended with Brian Barry hitting the net for the first goal. Shortly afterwards Sean Mullane made the first of a number of fine saves to deny Kildimo-Pallaskenry a way back into the match. Mungret St Pauls took full advantage of this turning a sustained run of possession into a score of two goals and two points for a lead of 3-5 to 0-1 at the 25th minute, with the goals coming from Sean Moran and Brian Barry at the end of some fine passing moves.

The complexion of the game then turned against us as the team was reduced to 14 men and faced into the second half a man down and playing against a strengthening wind which was blowing diagonally across the pitch. The lineout was reshuffled to face the elements, knowing that they needed to keep the scoreboard ticking over and avoid conceding goals. They hit two further goals through Brian Considine and Adam Storan, but did waste quite a number of point-scoring opportunities. However the last line of defence stood firm conceding no goals under pressure, good defensive work and a couple of fine saves by Sean Mullane enabled a 5 goal lead with 10 minutes to play. As the evening darkened and more rain fell, the match drew to a close with Mungret St Pauls winning by 11 points.

This was a fine team performance, notable for high quality scoring moves in difficult playing conditions, good defensive work near our own goal and an honest attitude and workrate from all 21 players used on the day. We will face the east champions, Pallasgreen, for a place in the county final in Kilbreedy at 12noon on Sunday 6th December.

The squad for the final was; Sean Mullane, David Brosnan, Luke O’Connell, Ahmed Hammad, John O’Donovan, Michael Fitzgibbon, Ciaran Laffey, Eoin O’Doherty, Killian Ryan, Adam Storan, Peter Harrington, James Cusack, Brian Barry, Sean Moran, Brian Considine. With subs used; Keith Storan, Chris Dunford, Ronan Beatty, Fionn White, Declan Brown, Stephen Scanlon. Ciaran Heagney. Glen Hughes, Niall Mulcahy, Cathal Shinnors and Alex Potter also played in earlier games.
