MUNGRET ST PAUL’S GAA CLUB NOTES
Thank you to everyone who virtually joined in the club AGM on Saturday 12 December. This was a great way for members to be sitting in comfort and being able to hear clearly what was being said by the secretary Donal Duff. It started with a run through the progress of each team, this was followed up by a progress report of the development of the pitches.
Due to illness the treasurer’s report was unavailable, to be brought up at an EGM in 2021. The Chairman, Brian O’Halloran read his address starting with a moments silence for those who have passed during the year. There was a special Thank you to all our coaches, players and many volunteers in the club who helped the club blend in with Covid restrictions.
There was only one motion which was to change the club trustees from club members to Croke Park which was passed.
There was not much change in officers. John Rochford is the new football board delegate. The club is still looking for a city board delegate and a secretary as Donal Duff steps down from the roll.
We are a club that has a wide variety of skilled members, with the development of the grounds the club are asking those who have skills or talents that may help the club out in any way- ground work, grants, fundraising, etc to please make themselves known to firstname.lastname@example.org
Mungret St. Pauls would like to congratulate John Kiely and the Limerick Senior Hurlers on the All Ireland win on the 13 December, bringing joy and celebrations to Limerick people after a difficult year it is a great way to close the year.
The Liam MacCarthy win may have put the Minor and U-20 matches on Saturday 12 December in the shadows but we are delighted to have a Semi final for the Minor Footballers and a Final for the Minor Hurlers to look forward to. Unfortunately the U-20 hurlers brought the game to extra time in the dying minutes of full time but were just out scored in extra time to bow out of the competition.
Well done to our players who represented Limerick on Saturday- in football we have; James Killian, Daragh Bridgeman, ,Frank Corcoran, Oisin Moss, Ciaran Uwatse, Colin Rochford and Darragh O’Connor, in the Minor Hurling panel we have; Barry Duff, Billy Molyneaux and Liam Lynch also Diarmuid Mullins who is Manager of the Minor Hurling team. Louis Dee was on the U20 Hurling panel.
