Junior B Hurling County Final

Mungret St. Pauls 0-13 Bruff 0-13

Five years ago these two teams met on the same pitch in Ballyagran in a County Junior B Final. On that occasion Bruff were declared winners with the score 1-11 to 0-11.

This was an even enough game with Mungret St. Pauls and Bruff both getting their fair share of scoring frees, it was what they did with it that made the difference. Mungret St. Pauls was first to score from a free and followed it up with another 2 scores before Bruff broke through on the 8th minute to put up their first score this was accompanied with 2 wides from Bruff and one for Mungret St. Pauls. On the 15 minute mark Bruff added another point from a 65, they proceeded to score another 4 points unanswered taking the lead with them. Just before the half time whistle Mungret St. Pauls managed another point but Bruff struck another 2 taking a 4 point lead.

Mungret St. Pauls needed to up their game but had the slope to their advantage. Straight into the game and Mungret St. Pauls lost 2 chances to score. Bruff did not waste time to put the sliotar over the bar at the other end. Mungret St. Pauls got some momentum and scored another 5 points to Bruffs one point. The lead was narrowed down to one point making the game very interesting. Three more points from play brought the game to a draw with Bruff notching up one and Mungret St. Pauls seeing two for them.

This brought the game into the final 10 minutes and every bodies eyes were on the sliotar as Mungret St. Pauls kept the ball in the Bruff half a missed free was closely followed by a point for Mungret St. Pauls. bruff were off target 3 times in a row with Mungret St. Pauls accepting the 2 point advantage with a pointed free, another free was sent to the wrong side of the uprights. It was into injury time that 2 frees for Bruff brought the game to a close with only Limerick GAA delighted with the result of a draw and a replay.

We would like to thank all our supporters who came away from their warm houses to support the junior Hurlers and we hope you can make the replay which is on SATURDAY 18 November in BALLYAGRAN at 3pm.

A point a piece opened the game but Garryspillane soon took a lead with 2 frees pointed and an attempt on goals successful.

Premier Intermediate Hurling

Mungret St. Pauls 2-13 Effin 1-8

With Mungret St. Pauls having won the dress rehearsal of this match 2 weeks ago it was today’s result that counted. The Limerick Motor Centre sponsored, Mungret St. Pauls stepped up to the plate and with Effin getting frees easily Mungret St. Pauls worked their score mostly from play and kept their position in the Premier Intermediate Championship for next year.

Mungret St. Pauls were challenged in the goals in the starting minutes of the game but Effin were denied and Mungret St. Pauls got a head start in the game striking 2 points before Effin were given their first chance to score from a free on the 10th minute. It would take another 10 minutes in the game before Effin took their second score from another free, while Mungret St. Pauls point 3 from frees and 2 more from play. This was followed on with the sliotar being sent in from the edge of the pitch and with a bit of help passed the Effin goalie. Effin started to come back into the game sending 2 more sliotars over the bar another point a piece and a great goal save by Mungret St. Pauls ended the first half with Mungret St. Pauls a comfortable 6 points ahead.

The second half had Effin helped out with scoring frees and Mungret St. Pauls using team work for their first point but it was a slow scoring quarter before the game heated up and pressure put on both backs. Effin using a 20 yard free infront of the goal needing the 3 points took their chance but the quick touch of Mungret St. Pauls goalie saw the sliotar travel the other end of the pitch where the Effin goalie was caught off guard as the sliotar passed him as he stumbled and straight into the net. Effins replies were too little too late as a scored penalty was their last attempt as Mungret St. Pauls sent one more sliotar over from a free to complete the game and hold their Premier Intermediate title for 2018.

Having only moved up the ranks from last year and ending in the bottom of the pile this year Mungret St. Pauls knows what lays ahead of them next year and we are sure plans are already in place for improvement. Well done to the players, mentors and families for all the time you have dedicated to Mungret St. Pauls the future Premier Intermediate players appreciate all your hard work.

Junior B Hurling County Quarter Final

Mungret St. Pauls 2-13 Camogue Rovers 3-9

Sunday 24 September is a day to go into the Mungret St. Pauls history books as the day one of our teams broke the bad spell at the Ballyagran pitch and won a match to bring them into the Junior B County Semi Final.

It was very sticky on the ground but it did not phase our players as they took on Camogue Rovers. While Mungret St. Pauls were shooting wide Camogue Rovers were on target with their first and third shot but 2 well taken frees had Mungret St. Pauls back in the game. Another target practice for both wided until a quick trek down the hill saw the sliotar shot to the back of the net before Camogue Rovers knew it was there. This lifted the players as a free for Mungret St. Pauls sent the sliotar well over the bar and into the next parish followed from another 2 from play Camogue Rovers were slow in their response with only 2 points, another 2 more frees pointed by Mungret St. Pauls had Mungret St. Pauls with a fine lead. Just before the half time whistle Camogue Rovers received 2 frees which they pointed to bring the half time score to 1-7 Mungret St. Pauls 0-8 Camogue Rovers.

Rebooted after the break Camogue Rovers came out on the pitch and headed straight for our goals to secure a tight game, a point a piece and then Camogue Rovers took advantage of the top speed down the hill and shot another sliotar into our goal to bring them ahead for the second time in the game. Mungret St. Pauls then seemed to struggle a bit not getting in a point until the 10th minute of the half but with Camogue Rovers sending shots wild from frees it gave Mungret St. Pauls a chance to breath and recoup to head up the pitch pass the ball onto the waiting player and rattle the net reclaiming the lead by 2 points.Camogue Rovers tried to come back but Mungret St. Pauls were quicker in their response sending the sliotar soaring over the bar. A last ditch attempt by Camogue Rovers to take the game was a valiant effort when they placed their third goal into our net to bring the game level, with only a minute left on the clock and Mungret St. Pauls in control of the puck out the everyone held their breath, the next hit on the sliotar had the final say on the game and went our way as it traveled up the pitch and over the bar with the whistle barley heard over the supporters and players shouts. Mungret St. Pauls now progress to the County Semi Final where they play Feohanagh on Sunday 8 October in the Bog Garden at 12pm

Premier Intermediate Hurling

Mungret St. Pauls 0-21 Effin 1-10

Limerick Motor Centre sponsored Premier Intermediate played the last game in the group against Effin on Sunday 17 September, this was a rehearsal to the relegation play off in the next week.

The sun was strong as both sides opened their game with wides and then Mungret St. Pauls lead the way popping over 2 points before Effin after 2 wides placed their first point in just under the 10th minute. Mungret St. Pauls did not sit back and took charge again and sent in another 4 points before Effin got to reply with another point. 4 points for Mungret St. Pauls saw Effin with only another 2 when a low ball was sent to go over the Effin cross bar for the goalie to get his stick in first. With minutes left on the clock Effin received a free and sent it wide while Mungret St. Pauls sent over one more point before the whistle.

The second half had Effin come back a bit stronger and giving Mungret St. Pauls a better game, the first 10 minutes of the game Mungret St. Pauls struggled to get their 3 points and Effin were aiming to the cross bar converting 4 points to bring the gap closer. Mungret St. Pauls were loosing their men and these free men were actively seeing for the ball and making use of it. it was point for point in the next 6 scores. Mungret St. Pauls were being put under pressure in the back lines many times, with a lot of tussles, most of the time the ball was sent back out the field and Mungret St. Pauls saw use for the ball adding another 2 points In the last 2 minutes of the game, Effins pressure eventually weakened the back and the ball slipped into the back of the goal, this was too late for a recovery for Effin as Mungret St. Pauls concluded the game on a point.

They play each other again in what will be a different game as both play to stay in the Premier Intermediate.

Minor Hurling Semi Final

Mungret St. Pauls 3-18 Na Piarsaigh 0-9
Set in the Gaelic Grounds on Wednesday 13 September the rain was put on hold for the whole match with Na Piarsaigh relying on frees for most of their points Mungret St. Pauls played the game that was asked of them.
With only seconds gone in the game Mungret St. Pauls had their first point on the score board and the lead they would retain for the rest of the game. Na Piarsaigh took their first score from a free and only added another 3 to this with only one of these from play in the first half. There were not many wides throughout the game. In the first half Mungret St. Pauls only took 4 of their points from frees the other 8, were from play.
The second half Mungret St. Pauls were ready to take on the next 30 minutes and prove they deserve the slot in the final. Na Piarsaigh opened the second half with a point then handed the game book to Mungret St. Pauls who slotted 3 sliotars over the bar before they rattled the net for the first time jump starting Na Piarsaigh back into the game who added two points to their score sheet and missing an opportunity. Mungret St. Pauls took over again and shot the sliotar to the forwards turning out another goal. The game was almost up when Mungret St. Pauls delighted the supporters with the goal of the match when the ball was sent from near the sideline and cleanly tucked in behind the goalie from a jump at the near side of the post. Na Piarsaigh signed off on the game with their final point. With the final whistle came the relief and realisation that this team along with their mentors have brought themselves into the Minor Premier County Final for the first time since 1993. 
It is not the first final this team have seen though, starting at the U-12 Community Games, this team have seen every final in under age from then on only loosing the U-13 in the Gaelic Grounds to Patrickswell while claiming all the rest. 
They now prepare to play Garryspillane who they lost to by 2 points only 2 weeks before.

Junior B Hurling

 
Mungret St. Pauls 7-19 Ballybrown 3-4
A game of goals played against the neighbours resulting in the Mike O’Connell sponsored Mungret St. Pauls holding the City Junior B Hurling title again in Claughaun on 3 September.
Mungret St. Pauls started out very strong in the first few minutes not letting Ballybrown getting in many touches on the sliotar until the 11th minute when they were a goal and 3 points behind, Ballybrown sent the ball for a point from a free. Mungret St. Pauls built up a generous score in the first half with 4 goals and 8 points while Ballybrown closed the half with their second free pointed.
The second half was a different game with Ballybrown getting to the ball quicker and fighting on their attack while Mungret St. Pauls stood back after doing a lot of the work in the first half. A goal and point to Ballybrown saw Mungret St. Pauls pop over 3 points, with Ballybrown requiring goals our backs were put under a lot of strain with each scoring ball heading to them, the cleared ball was worked up the pitch and launched for a point or more additional goals.There were not many wides in this half but Mungret St. Pauls almost doubled their first half score.
This was a very civilized game with an outstanding finish for Mungret St. Pauls.
Well done to the players, mentors and supporters.

Premier Intermediate Hurling

Mungret St. Pauls 1-15 Feohanagh 1-16

It did not just come down to the last minute it was the last second that the result of this game was determined and resulted in the Mungret St. Pauls players dropping to their knees. Ballyagran brought the rain and sunshine during the game on Sunday 30 July 2017

The first 4 minutes of the game seemed to be a warm up as both sides missed their targets but Feohanagh managed to get 3 point over before Mungret St. Pauls on the 7th minute struck their first score but did not leave Feohanagh in front for too long as the ball was snook past the Feohanagh goalie raising the green flag. It was the backs that were making the points as they sent great balls up the field. Keeping the lead, Mungret St. Pauls struck 3 wides in a row followed by Feohanagh sending one wide. Mungret St. Pauls scored one point which was matched by Feohanagh along with another 2 points leveling the game for the first time. A free and another point gave Feohanagh the lead going into the half time with Mungret St. Pauls receiving 2 frees before the break, only pointing one.

There was great support for Mungret St. Pauls from the spectators. Feohanagh christened the restart with a quick point, but winning the puckouts helped Mungret St. Pauls bring the game back on level footing, it was point for point as the game drew 2 more times. Mungret St. Pauls pulled their game up and with points from play took a 2 point lead but did not last long as Feohanagh drew the game for the last time. A wide ball for Mungret St. Pauls was sent back from the puckout for the one point lead. Feohanagh sent their chance to the side of the uprights, with fresh legs coming on new pressure was put on the Feohagan goals but was cleared for a 65 which was converted. The end of normal play Feohanagh struck another miss but it was the forth minute of injury time where our backs were under the most pressure with a scramble at the mouth, the green flag was raised as the final whistle was sounded. Feohanagh needed the win the confirm their place in the semi final while Mungret St. Pauls needed the win to bring them up the table. Two games are left in this championship, we know our players felt this loss but will learn from it and be prepared for the next game.

Mungret St. Pauls 3-14 Doon 1-13
A game where simple mistakes were made and a laps in concentration was where Doon punished us on 27 July on our home pitch.
Both sides of the game started with a goal with Mungret St. Pauls claiming the first goal after sending the first ball wide of the uprights but followed with another point to Mungret St. Pauls. Doon did not sit back too long as they brought the score to a draw with a lot of hard work on the pitch. Mungret St. Pauls then got 3 more unanswered points until Doon received a scoring free. Doon kept the pressure on and a big tussle at the Mungret St. Pauls goal mouth eventually saw the ball out the field only to be sent back over the bar for Doon. Mungret St. Pauls sent a few balls wide but kept pushing for another goal which was expertly saved by the Doon goalie. 4 of the last points in this half were a result of frees (3 for Mungret St. Pauls). Half time had Mungret St. Pauls on the up side 1-9 to 0-8.
The game was swiftly restarted with Doon taking the sliotar and slamming it into the back of the net. This quickly woke the Mungret St. Pauls team up as Doon kept sending ball in but each time it was saved by our goalie until it went down the pitch and made use of. Doon sent another ball into their forward which was directed into the goal only for the ref to declare a square ball, this goal would of left Mungret St. Pauls on the back foot, to make sure they held the lead Mungret St. Pauls struck a point either side of their second goal but Mungret St. Pauls seemed to need a breather as they handed Doon 3 frees in a row all pointed.
The game ended uneventful as frees dictated the final score and soft balls send to both goalies.
There are 2 more games left for Mungret St. Pauls against Adare and Garryspillane.

Mungret St. Pauls 2-13 Patrickswell 2-13
A good result for Mungret St. Pauls who have had better days, some impressive scoring from both sides.
The rain held off on Friday 21 July when Patrickswell came to Mungret for the Minor game. There was a great crowd of supporters for both teams. Mungret St. Pauls lost the ball on a chance for a goal to open the game. It was a point a piece before Patrickswell got their own chance and sent the ball to the net, followed by a point Patrickswell were leading the game and held the lead through to the last few minutes.
This opening half of the game had most shots on target, the pressure was put on Patrickswell as they shot 4 wides in a row near the closing stages of the first half and pointed a free before the whistle.
Mungret St. Pauls were struggling to hold possession of the ball. Patrickswell brought the gap further away from Mungret St. Pauls when a few minute into the restart they had an additional point and their second goal leaving Mungret St. Pauls 7 points behind. Looking like they were really struggling the ball was sent to the Mungret St. Pauls forward line and the gap was closed in when the Patrickswell net was rattled, followed by a pointed free. A lot of work needed to be done on the field but the heads were still up and seeking the ball. Patrickswell added 4 more points with only one from play while Mungret St. Pauls ticked 2 onto their score sheet both frees just before the game came back into itself with Mungret St. Pauls striking their second goal of the game. Another free pointed by Mungret St. Pauls brought the gap to one point. The game clincher, a sideline ball was declared for Mungret St. Pauls with everyone watching the sliotar which was struck perfectly between the uprights, the game is a draw. Patrickswell needed a win but it was 2 more pointed frees a piece that confirmed the final score in a draw.
Mungret St. Pauls next meet Doon on Thursday 27 July in Mungret which should be another good game.

Mungret St. Pauls 4-24 Monaleen 1-10

On a lovely summer afternoon in Mungret the Junior Hurlers took on Monaleen on Sunday 16 July. This was a very one sided game with Mungret St. Pauls coming out on top.

Mungret St. Pauls opened the game with a shot gone wide with Monaleen following with their own wide shot. Mungret St. Pauls then struck the sliotar into the Monaleen net. Mungret St. Pauls followed on with an additional 3 points before Monaleen managed to break the play with their first point of the game. Monaleen were off target with a lot of their frees and chances going wide. Mungret St. Pauls sent their own fair share of wides but a shot on goal was saved and resulting in a 65 that Monaleen sent shot of the uprights and back out to play. Mungret St. Pauls second attempt on a goal was bounded away to become a 65 dutifully pointed. Mungret St. Pauls continued adding to the score sheet not letting Monaleen in until the dying the minutes of the first half when they produced a third point to go with Mungret St. Pauls 3 goals and 11 points.

The second half, Mungret St. Pauls did not put on as much pressure on Monaleen and they added more points. Mungret St. Pauls only stuck in one more goal but more than doubled their points. Monaleen sealed the game off with a ball in the Mungret St. Pauls net for their final score. Mungret St. Pauls had great support at this match which would be great to see at each match.

Mungret St. Pauls 7-15 Ballybrown 2-5
A one sided game where Mungret St. Pauls took the lead role and win in Ballybrown on Sunday 9 July.
Mungret St. Pauls had a strong start with a point and goal within minutes of the starting whistle but it was also a half with 16 wides for Mungret St. Pauls, while getting 4 goals and 5 points. The defense made it difficult for Ballybrown to get in and when they did they took a goal, it was on the 15 minute mark when Ballybrown got a point to join their goal and struggled to work their way up the pitch to put over another 2 points by the half time whistle.
Mungret St. Pauls had a considerable lead at this stage but could not let their guard down in the second half.
Ballybrown made the supporters gasp in the opening stages of the second half as they sent the ball soaring straight across the goal for it to pass it out and go wide. This half saw Mungret St. Pauls converting all 5 of their scoreable frees added another 5 from play they notched up another 3 goals while Ballybrown scored a strong goal and sending their frees wide they only managed 2 more points. This was a good match for Mungret St. Pauls to get under their belt.

Mungret St. Pauls 4-17 Ahane 2-19
In a game where the goals were all played in the first half and the points scored by both teams evened the second half.
On Friday 7 July in Ahane Mungret St. Pauls came out of the blocks and were quick to the score with an opportune goal but Ahane were quick to follow this up with 3 points. Another point a piece saw Ahane traveling to our backs where the ball was shot to the back of the net giving Ahane their only lead of the game. On the 15 minute mark Mungret St. Pauls claimed the third goal of the game, quickly accompanied with Mungret St. Pauls third goal. With 3 more points Ahane evened the score again, Mungret St. Pauls were low on points, they worked together and place 2 balls over the bar and one in the net for their forth goal of the game. In the final stages of the first half Ahane got the sliotar past the defense into the net for the second time, this was along with 2 more points while Mungret St. Pauls pointed 3 more from play.
Half time had Mungret St. Pauls with a 4 point lead and as we had seen it could be quenched in seconds with a goal.
The second half was a slower start with wides for both sides, each point Mungret St. Pauls placed Ahane returned with one of their own. While there were many great placed ball there were two points to be mentioned in this half for Mungret St. Pauls the first was the sideline cut that was seen perfectly placed between the uprights. The second was when it looked like the ball was going to go over the sideline only to roll to a stop in the dip of the sideline waiting to be picked up and sent over the Ahane cross bar. Ahane concluded the game with their last point and with the same 4 point lead at half time Mungret St. Pauls took the win.

Mungret St. Pauls 1-12 Ballybrown 1-15
A fight to the end for control of the game, not Mungret St. Pauls sharpest game in Ballybrown on Tuesday 4 July.
Ballybrown took a point lead in the early stages of the game with Mungret St. Pauls sending 3 chances wide before they settled into the game. The score leveled out 4 times before Mungret St. Pauls returned the Ballybrown puck out back for a 2 point lead. Ballybrown did not rest and came back into the game. There was no scores for a while as the ball was sent up and down the pitch until Ballybrown was rewarded an opportunity in front of the goals, they went for a goal but it was sent to our goalies hurley and out the pitch only to return as a point for Ballybrown, another free to Ballybrown gave them a margin of a lead at half time (8 points Mungret St. Pauls, 9 points for Ballybrown).
After a few words at half time Mungret St. Pauls came out and drew the game back even only for Ballybrown to go 3 points ahead, the last was another free infront of the goals but they opted for the safer choice of a point. Mungret St. Pauls seemed to lose their grasp on the game giving frees and making some poor choices but when the ball was sent in front of the Ballybrown goals with only 5 minutes left on the clock, it was wrestled into the back of the net to make the game more interesting. Ballybrown then sent the action to our own goals where the shot on the goal was skilfully stopped but rebounded back in by Ballybrown this meant Mungret St. Pauls had to work harder with the minutes ticking away. Another 2 points for Mungret St. Pauls left the final score with a 3 point loss. This was a physical clean game for the neighbours.

Mungret St. Pauls 1-10 Pallasgreen 2-11
A physical game in winter conditions, it was the wind that dictated a lot of the scores on Friday 9 June in Bruff when our Limerick Motor Centre sponsored hurlers came up against Pallasgreen.
Mungret St. Pauls went straight for the Pallasgreen posts but all attempts were denied. It did not take long for Pallasgreen to penetrate the back of our net but Mungret St. Pauls were on point with their frees which brought them the lead. Pallasgreen were unsuccessful with a lot of their scoring frees, this half was Mungret St. Pauls going in 2 points up.
On the restart Pallasgreen got their scores in early with a second goal. It was not long before Mungret St. Pauls brought it back with their own well taken goal but it did not last long before Pallasgreen put a stop to Mungret St. Pauls scores who were struggling to come back again. The whistle came with Mungret St. Pauls 4 points behind.

Mungret St. Pauls 1-10 Patrickswell 2-17

In the City Junior A Hurling League our team made their way to the Semi Final in Clarina on Thursday 1 June were they met Patrickswell, Mungret St. Pauls did not get a good start and Patrickswell took advantage.

Patrickswell put over 3 points, one from a free, before Mungret St. Pauls marked the board from a sideline cut, caught and put straight over the bar. Patrickswell quickly replied and followed it up with 4 more points. Mungret St. Pauls were challenging the score but sent them wide. A free was where we found our second point of the game. A goal from Patrickswell hit Mungret St. Pauls hard and they started to pick up the game a bit too late before the half whistle. Going in at 0-5 to 1-9 with Patrickswell looking healthy.

After the half time words Mungret St. Pauls came out stronger and struck the sliotar into the Patrickswell goal but the scoring was slow in coming for both sides as pressure on Patrickswell sent a lot of their scoring chances wide but they did succeeded with 8 points before Mungret St. Pauls shot 4 points over the bar in a row, it never looked a close contest but Mungret St. Pauls never gave up especially in the dying moments of the game when Patrickswell got their second goal in, Mungret St. Pauls sent the ball up the far end but went wide for the last time in the game. They now put the A group behind taking from it the experience and concentrate on their next game.

Intermediate Hurling

Mungret St. Pauls 0-14 Croom 0-18
In a game where Limerick Motor Centre sponsored Mungret St. Pauls started out strong they held their own and fought back in the second half but the absence of a goal was the loss of the game.
The first half saw Mungret St. Pauls give a lot of scoring chances to Croom when they met in Mungret on Wdnesday 31 May with most of these frees going wide. Mungret St. Pauls popped over the first score of the game from a placed ball but took all rest of their first half scores from play with only 3 wides near the end of the half time whistle.
Croom had the edge going back for the second half with a 4 point lead this was a slower start where Mungret St. Pauls were holding back Croom and we received more scoring chances from frees and converted most of them with many wides from play. Croom were more accurate in their scoring in this side. There was a lot of messy play from both sides in mid field, hand passes were not clean and often fumbled. They will regroup and prepare for the next game ahead.

Mungret St. Pauls 1-20 Monaleen 1-16
On a fine Tuesday evening 23 May the two red teams met in Mungret with a depleted team Mungret St. Pauls put it up to Monaleen and took the victory.
Mungret St. Pauls took an early lead with 2 points from frees. Monaleen were slow to get into the game but by the end of the first half they had taken the 7 point lead that Mungret St. Pauls had built up to draw the break of play to a draw. Mungret St. Pauls were consistent players seeking out the spare man and sending the ball out of danger.
Monaleen started out stronger in the second half but it did not take long for Mungret St. Pauls to get stuck in and making use of the frees while taking any scoring chance to their advantage they retained the lead again and did not relinquish it. A great win for Mungret St. Pauls.

On Sunday 14 May after a great day at the 10K run our supporters traveled to Bruff to get behind the Intermediate hurlers. Mungret St. Pauls were first to score but Garryspillane were quick and harsh with their reply of a goal and two points, this was only 5 minutes into the game. Mungret St. Pauls were not going to give up and as Garryspillane were getting their scores in Mungret St. Pauls chipped away at the lead, a second goal for Garryspillane might of disheartened many teams but Mungret St. Pauls seems a different breed of players. Half time could not come soon enough with a 7 point gap Garryspillane 2-7 Mungret St. Pauls 0-6.

Again Mungret St. Pauls opened the score in the second half but extended their score to 5 points unanswered topped off by a goal bringing a short lived lead to Mungret St. Pauls. The next 10 minutes saw Mungret St. Pauls put over another 6 points to 3 from Garryspillane. Our players seemed to be guiding the the game with garryspillane not being able to break our power surge and Mungret St. Pauls continued to score up the final whistle. A superb second half performance bringing a great result to top off a fantastic weekend for the club.

With a delay at the start the match in Ballingarry on Sunday 23 April it eventually started. In what was a high scoring match there were some great tricky shots on target. Pressure was put on our backs from the start but a score was denied. Grannagh Ballingarry looked strong and in control but Mungret St. Pauls were chipping in points keeping a tight rein on the score board. Grannagh Ballingarry had the lead for most of the match and it was in the last quater of the match where it really started to heat up when Mungret St. Pauls closed the game and took a lead with a goal, Grannagh Ballingarry did not let the lead sit long on the score board and it started into a score for score until the dying minutes of the game where Grannagh Ballingarry stuck in a chance goal which gave them a 2 point lead.

An atmospheric match that came down to the last puck of the ball. The first half was quite uneventful with Mungret St. Pauls taking the lead early it was not long before Kilmallock fought back but left Mungret St. Pauls with a one point lead at half time.

The second half was a different game for both teams as Mungret St. Pauls were adding to their points Kilmallock started to chip away at the bit of a lead Mungret St. Pauls had built up and then Kilmallock took the lead. Mungret St. Pauls pushed on and it ended up in a point for point game. Mungret St. Pauls were the first to penetrate the net only for it to be reduplicated by Kilmallock. This lead into the most exciting 10 minutes of the game where every strike in the right direction got a reaction from the gathering supporters. It was known this match was going to be a thriller, it did not disappoint, Well done to our Minors who took their game to the next level and succeeded.

Mungret St. Pauls edged into the lead which was followed up by a goal by Muroe Boher but a quick reply by us saw Mungret St. Pauls with the lead again. In what was a high scoring half it was the easy frees that let Mungret St. Pauls down.

City East Under 21 A Final

Southside Gaels 0-14 Mungret St Pauls 2-13

On a breezy but sunny Sunday the U-21 hurlers traveled to Rebhogue for the City East Final against the amalgamated team of Claughan, Old Christians and St. Patrick’s known as Southside Gaels. This was a slow starting match with not much score being recorded, with a lot of missed opportunities the boys seemed to be still settling into the game until the first changing point of the game when the sliotar was struck perfectly to the back of the Gaels goal. This was a needed boost to both the score and the team. Half time finished with Mungret St. Pauls having a slight edge 1-6 Mungret St. Pauls to 0-7 Southside Gaels.

Mungret St. Pauls started the second half with the slight wind and were the first to add to their score. The Gaels stepped their game up and drew even with Mungret St. Pauls but this did not last long as the Mungret boys put everything they had into the game and took the chance of a second goal. It became clear Mungret St. Pauls were not letting their guard down as Southside Gales tried to go for goals but were denied at every chance. The final whistle saw joint captains Chris Dunford and Cian O’Brien accept the cup. Well done to the players, mentors, parents and supporters. We will see more of this team as they progress to the county.

U-21 Hurling

Mungret St. Pauls 2-16 Ballybricken/ Bohermore 2-9
On Sunday February 26 in Ballybricken our U-21 hurlers were playing their third game having won the two previous they were looking to take another win but with stormy weather it made the pitch very boggy. The first half was a close match Mungret St. Pauls had a two point lead going in at the half time. With strong wind through out the game this was one of the hardest challenges so far but our players stepped it up in the second half and took a comfortable win in the end. This leaves Mungret St. Pauls at the top of the table with their final match against Southside Gaels who are second on the table to be played in Mungret at 2.30pm on Sunday 5 March.

Intermediate Hurling

Mungret St. Pauls 0-17 Pallasgreen 0-10

On Sunday 13 November Mungret St. Pauls saw themselves out against Pallasgreen again. We had a slight advantage having only played the match the week previous and Pallasgreen facing into their third match in three weeks.

A free for Mungret St. Pauls saw Richie christen the scoreboard. Pallasgreen looked strong and began to dominate the first 15 minutes of the match but only managed to build up 3 points in that time with no reply from Mungret St. Pauls. The turning point of the game came when Paudie Kirby could be seen with the sliotar powering up the side and spying Pallasgreens no. 11 coming on the attack built up the speed and showed how a shoulder should be used as the vibrations of his hit must of been felt on the field as it seemed Mungret St. Pauls brought the game to another level, there was no stopping them. The team worked as one and used their strength to pull the score up 6 more points having possibly rattled Pallasgreen who were unable to put any more points in before the half time whistle which saw Mungret St. Pauls 0-7 Pallasgreen 0-3.

The second half had Pallasgreen come out with more attack only to be stopped by the strong backs of Barry O’Grady, Chris Dunford and Eoin Mulcahy with Patrick Begley, Paudie Kirby and Brian Barry powering the sliotar to the other end of the pitch, this half saw Brian Barry pointing a lovely ball. Chris Buckley and captain Eoin O’Doherty had their work cut out setting up scores with Eoin taking his own 2 points. Pallasgreen were trying to close in and managed to bring them 3 points away from Mungret St. Pauls lead, it was not to last long as we came back and with 10 minutes left in the game were brought back to a 6 point difference. A free for Pallasgreen infront of our goals may of seen a change of play only for the strike to be directed straight to the skillful hurley of Conor O’Brien who cleared it.

Pallasgreen managed to break Mungret St. Pauls concentration for a few minutes and popped over 3 points but this is where they were stopped and Mungret St. Pauls brought on fresh legs and added on the last scores of the match to seal the game and sign off on the score board.

The strong wall of Brian Begley, Brendan Giltenane and Richie Burke were hard to break through throughout and were not giving up possession without a fight. Richies free taking was on target notching up 7 points from frees and one from play. Brendan Giltenane chose wisely when to strike for a score putting 2 points to his name, brother Tommy scored his own point but fed striking opportunities to his team mates. Colm Moriarty was a great addition to this match having to sit out the last one he owned his position. It was Brian Tobin who with 3 points from play was having a great game as usual.

Mungret St. Pauls last won this title in 1975. This team are on the up and look forward to taking on the Premier Intermediate in 2017. The strength of the team is each individual player, the strength of the player is the team.

Intermediate Hurling

Mungret St. Pauls 0-17 Pallasgreen 1-14
Mungret St. Pauls were the first and last to score in this match which brought our men back to the Gaelic Grounds on Saturday 5 November when they met with Pallasgreen in what turned out to be a power struggle for both teams.
Mungret St. Pauls started out well notching up 7 points to Pallasgreens 3, but it was in the 26th minute of the game it all changed as Pallasgreen put the sliotar over the bar and into the net to bring them to level pegging with Mungret St. Pauls, they then added another point to go ahead. It was in injury time that Mungret St. Pauls got in another 2 points to bring them a slight edge going in at half time.
The second half saw Pallasgreen prosper but Mungret St. Pauls were nipping at their heals not letting them get too far ahead. A goal for Mungret would help but it was not forthcoming as much as the forwards tried. In the last 10 minutes of the game was when Mungret St. Pauls pulled together and with fresh feet on the pitch they struck 3 points onto the score in quick succession just before the full time whistle to see us into a replay. Well done to the team and mentors to getting the draw, we as a club have lost by a mere point in finals too often lately.
Not every team get a second chance to prove themselves but we hope to see a stronger Mungret St. Pauls team come out at the replay.

Junior B Hurling

Newcastle West 2-13 Mungret St. Pauls 1-15

After the high of last week the Junior Hurlers faced into a quarter final on Sunday 2 October. There was a lot of mixed emotion at this match where the game favored both teams at different times and drew even many times even up to the last few minutes of injury time in the game where it would come to the next score wins.

Mungret St. Pauls fought hard in The Bog Garden. The first 15 minutes saw Mungret St. Pauls take a lead and lose it and regain it again to draw even. They then pulled ahead with a two point advantage only to see a goal for Newcastle West change the scales again but only for a short while as the first half closed with the score on 0-10 to 1-7.

The second half Mungret St. Pauls took off and with only 10 minutes of the second half played they had widened the gap by five points having put the sliotar in the back of the net in the opening few minutes of the second half. Like a tennis match the score drew another 4 times before the whistle went and Mungret St. Pauls dreams of County glory were dashed by one sliotar over the bar giving Newcastle West the win.

The neighbours met in Claughaun for the Junior B final where a great match was to be witnessed on Sunday 25 September 2016. Ballybrown took an early lead with the first point only minutes into the game but they were quickly halted by Mungret St. Pauls sending points to the score board. In the 21st minute of the match was the clincher for MSP as the ball was struck to the back of the net, this was to be Mungret St. Pauls only goal of the game and was quickly copied by Ballybrown in the next minute of play, followed up by the last goal in the game to come with in 5 minutes of each other. This second goal by Ballybrown saw the lead that MSP had build up quickly disappearing and at half time there was an even score sheet. It was still all to play for.
The second half saw Mungret St. Pauls come out running and with determination of not letting the neighbours take the title, Ballybrown were not going to let MSP walk over them and put up a great fight for the ball. With points going over for both sides it was Mungret St. Pauls that took the lead with the breeze.

Saturday 10 September saw Mungret St. Pauls and Pallasgreen meet each other in Claughaun. This was a match that put Mungret St Pauls under pressure to make their scores count and this is where the 2 goals helped take a bit of pressure off. Stopping Pallasgreen getting any chance at scoring a goal put the defence under pressure but they kept the Pallasgreen forwards at bay.

Junior B Hurling

Mungret St. Pauls 3-10 Na Piarsaigh 1-12
It was in Clarina where the Junior B Hurlers had to play the Semi Final on Saturday 20 August against Na Piarsaigh. With weather more suitable for winter they took to the wet pitch and with a wind each player had to give it everything to achieve a win. The first half saw the sliotar quickly going from one end of the field to the other. Na Piarsaigh took control of the score board but Mungret St. Pauls were never too far behind. Half time there was a four point lead to Na Piarsaigh. Coming back to the pitch there was more determination on the Mungret St. Pauls players, they kept their concentration and it payed off in 2 successful goals which brought them level with a chance to win. This spured them on and they took the lead for the first time in the game. Na Piarsaigh tried to win back some scores but were denied by the Mungret St.Pauls defence sending the ball to the midfields where it was finished off nicely by the forwards, great team work ment Mungret St. Pauls proceed to the finals in the Junior B Hurling. We wish them the best of luck as they play Ballybrown in Kildimo on Sunday 28 August at 6pm. Please come out to support this great team.

Intermediate Hurling

Mungret St. Pauls 4-20 Feenagh Kilmeedy Gaa 1-12
This was a match with a bit of entertainment added with a helmet change, a cobbler on the pitch, a missing whistle and some hurley maintenance. For Mungret St. Pauls the mix of young and experienced players is working well together.
It did not start great when the first Mungret St. Paul player to touch the sliotar was our goalie and with the first 2 points for both sides coming from frees, the players eventually settled into the game and scores started to come from play. Mungret St. Pauls took the lead with Feenagh Kilmeedy drawing level a few times Mungret St. Pauls eventually pulled ahead and kept the lead for the rest of the match.
Mungret St. Pauls stand in third place on the table with only one more match to play against the table toppers on point difference Pallasgreen, a win in the next match will put them in a very comfortable position.

Charity Race

There was great excitement on Thursday night 21 July in the horse track in Patrickswell where Limerick GAA had organised a great day for players. The highlight of the night was the charity run where nominated players from clubs were put forward to race each other. Representing Mungret St. Pauls was Intermediate Hurling captain Eoin O’Doherty. Running against Eoin were players from Ballybrown, Ballysteen, Bruff, Cappamore, Crecora, Croom, Killeedy, Pallasgreen, Patrickswell, Rathkeale. This match has gone down in history and not for it being the first race but as a lot of you may of seen when the lead runner started to look back at the red jersey narrowing his lead ended up tripping in the final furlong and Bruff were the winners. Eoin came in at a respectable forth place.

On Monday 18 July in the summer heat the Junior team welcomed the neighours to the Village pitch. This turned out to be a physical game with many challanges to overcome.

The second half saw a newned energy from Knockaderry as they took Mungret St. Pauls on. There were a lot of misplaced and wide sliotars through out the game.

Hospital Herbertstown 3-17 Mungret St.Pauls 1-15

A frustrating game where a lot of frees were handed to Hospital Herbertstown. Mungret St. Pauls had the upper hand with a three point lead going into the second half but never seemed to have gotten the momentum going to drive through Hospital Herbertstown who sought the loop holes and took their scores. It was late in the game when Mungret St. Pauls lost the lead and never regained the composure. A great shot to the Hospital Herbertstown goal helped lessen the scoring difference but with Hospital Herbertstown getting in 2 unstoppable goals and a penalty it was the goals that lost this match for Mungret St. Pauls.

Patrickswell 3-16 Mungret St. Paul’s 3-12

Monday 16 May Mungret St.Pauls welcomed Patrickswell. The game started with only 14 players for Mungret St. Pauls but they quickly gained their final player to the field before the game settled in. Patrickswell had control in the first half and were looking like they had the game in hand. In the second half Mungret St. Pauls lifted it up and started to hit back at the Patrickswell score. With goals being popped in past the Patrickswell keeper Mungret were looking good until they had to loose a player to injury. This did not put the home team down and they powered on working together.

The whispers began on the sideline as Mungret St. Pauls seemed to have gained their 15th player- the roumours reveiled it was none other than the coach himself, Kevin O’Hagan back from retirement for one night only ! Well done to the team with things going against them they left the game with a four point loss.

LIMERICK MOTOR CENTRE INTERMEDIATE HURLING 14 May 2016 

Mungret St. Pauls 1-20 Newcastle West 2-17

It was a great day for this match set in Croagh on Saturday 14 May. Mungret St. Pauls were well prepared for the game ahead as was Newcastle West. We put the first point onto the score board but Newcastle West were hot on our heals and evened the score. Any lead we had was quickly taken and then Newcastle West took the lead and held onto it for the majority of the game. Mungret St. Pauls were off target on a lot of scoring chances which was reflected on the score board.

The supporters were definatly getting their moneys worth and like all good stories they had to wait til the very end for the twist as it was as the sun was setting on match that the action appeared at the Newcastle West goal mouth and after the first tusstle at the goal was unsuccessful, this one brought the supporters to their feet as the sliotar in the final minutes of the match was shot into the back of the net to bring the game to an end on a draw.

This draw brings Mungret St. Pauls to the top of the group on scoring difference just ahead of Newcastle West. With only 2 games played and another 3 to go big wins are needed. Next outting is against Hospital Herbertstown.

Mungret St. Pauls 2-17 Claughaun Old Christians 0-10
With the summer rain falling the intermediates were in Clarina for their match against Claughaun Old Christians. The sliotar was in constant motion from the off. With Mungret St. Pauls making the impact first, the score evened out and both teams settled into the game. There were some quick thinking passes through out the game which produced some lovely points. It was the goal in the first half for Mungret St. Pauls that turned the game and with only five points in the lead going in at half time as usual a lot of work was still to be done.
The team did not disappoint and kept their concentration on the target the two points for a win in the table. A substitution seemed to have brought a new lease of life to the team and the points along with a second goal were making a bigger target for Claughaun Old Christians to reach in the second half. Well done to the team on a great game and thank you to all the supporters who came out in the miserable rain.

Mungret St. Pauls 2-15 Ballybrown 1-10

The first round of the City Intermediate Hurling Championship between Ballybrown and Mungret St Pauls took place in Ballybrown on Sunday evening last at 6 pm. Mungret started very quickly and had a goal and five points before Ballybrown realised that there was a game on. The remainder of the first half saw ballybrown score two points from frees whilst Mungret scored four points to leave the interval score 1-9 to 0-2 in favour of Mungret. There must have been a few inspiration words at the break from the Ballybrown mentors as on the resumption of play they Blitzed Mungret for a goal and six points to a single pointed free to see the deficit reduced to just 2 points. Mungret got a second wind and outscored ballybrown by 1-5 to 0-2 to leave the final score Ballybrown 1-10 to Mungret St Pauls 2-15.
The strong wind was a significant factor in this game for both sides and were it not for some wayward shooting from the Ballybrown lads the final outcome might have been closer.
Final Score: Ballybrown 1-10 to Mungret St Pauls 2-15.

They don’t see the next match until July 1 when they meet Na Piarsaigh on home soil.
