Kildimo Pallaskenry got a head start in the score with 2 goals and a point from play before Mungret St. Pauls took on their first score followed up by a free which was pointed. Kildimo Pallaskenry continued to add another 3 points before Mungret St. Pauls put over their third point of the game. It was not looking good for Mungret St. Pauls as Kidimo Pallaskenry finished the half strong with another goal and 3 points leaving a 13 point difference in score.
The second half started well for Mungret St. Pauls as they stepped up the game and worked the ball up the field scoring 5 points to Kildimo Pallaskenrys 4. A penalty was converted to a goal for Mungret St. Pauls this was accompanied with 2 points which brought Mungret St. Pauls to 7 points behind. It was at this stage that Kildimo Pallaskenry changed gear and prevented Mungret St. Pauls from scoring any more while they were scoring from all over the field.

The minor football team traveled to Ardagh on Friday 3 August when they played St. Kierans. This was the second tough match for the minors in one week and they were under pressure from the start.
It was not the best match for the footballers as they did not get off to a great start and even though they scored the 3 goals it was not to be enough. This was the fifth game for Mungret St. Pauls in the group and they have 2 matches left to be played.
Mungret St. Pauls 0-10 Monaleen 2-3
In Mungret on Thursday 2 August a great game was to be played out as Mungret St. Pauls and Monaleen put everything into the game and Mungret St. Pauls took the win.
The women’s Irish Hockey team surprised a lot of people coming from second last in the ranks to overcome some great teams and make it to the World Cup Final where they played the top ranked Netherlands in the hot temperatures. We are very proud of the ladies who came off second best taking the silver medal. Hockey is quite similar to the GAA in that the players play for passion not for money. Roisin Upton was a former player with Mungret St. Pauls with one of her highlights being the captain of the winning Ladies Football Féile team. We would like to congratulate Roisin and her team mates on their fantastic achievement for Ireland, they have done their families, friends, clubs, counties and women in sport very proud.
