Mungret St. Pauls 2-21 Patrickswell 0-11
It was a dry Tuesday 28 June 2022 when Patrickswell came to Mungret for the opening round of the U-19 Premier hurling championship. Mungret St. Pauls started out slow but once they settled into the game they took over.
It took almost ten minutes for Mungret St. Pauls to find their speed with both sides level on three points but once Mungret St. Pauls hit top gear they powered ahead. The last score of the half was Patrickswells fourth point with Mungret St. Pauls ahead with a goal and 11 points.
The second half was a bit more level, Mungret St. Pauls reopened with their second goal, there was an exchange of points from both sides. Patrickswell were brought down to 14 players going into the last quarter of the game and Mungret St. Pauls finished well topping off their point. This was a great result for the team with 11 of the players getting their name on the score board.
U-11 LADIES FOOTBALL
We were delighted to welcome our neighbours from Ballinacurra Gaels to the Village pitch recently to play their inaugural football games at this level. The weather was kind, and it was great to see the girls from both sides getting stuck in and deriving such enjoyment from their football. We’d like to thank Ballinacurra and their coaches for the game, and we look forward to making the short return trip for a rematch at their home venue later in the summer.
Mungret St. Pauls 6-2 Fr. Caseys 1-2
This was the second meeting of these two sides with us getting the win in the first game in Abbeyfeale, this game was played in Mungret on Thursday 30 June 2022. It was a similar result with the Mungret St. Pauls proving too strong for the visitors in the division 1 game.
Mungret St. Pauls 1-1 Knockaderry 1-2 in Knockaderry
On the same day as the other U-13 match on Thursday 30 June 2022 our younger players travelled to Knockaderry. This was a very tight game with just a point separating the two sides for most of the match it was Knockaderry that had the extra point.
Well done to both sets of players and coaches.
Mungret St. Pauls 1-8 Pallasgreen 2-4
On a dry evening in Claughaun on Thursday 30 June 2022 our Intermediate Footballers took on Pallasgreen. Mungret St. Pauls had a great first half keeping a lead up to the break having built up 1-6 to Pallasgreens 1-1. The second half Mungret St. Pauls lacked in concentration and Pallasgreen took on their scores narrowing the gap up to the final minute where there was just one point seperating the two sides. This is a welcome win for the first round in the championship.
Mungret St. Pauls 2-9 Ballybrown 4-10
It was a dry Friday 1 June when the U-15 Division 3 football match eventually got under way in Mungret when the two sides met. There was a great display of skill, Mungret St. Pauls gave everything they had and were just unlucky to be outscored on the goals. This is our second U-15 team with most of our players having a second year to play in this age group.
JUNIOR A FOOTBALL
Mungret St. Pauls 3-13 Bruree 0-5
There was great banter during this match in Croom on Friday 1 June between both Mungret St. Pauls, Bruree and the referee. Mungret St. Pauls proved too strong for Bruree as they had a goal and two points up before Bruree broke through and made up for lost time with two points from frees. Mungret St. Pauls added another three points while Bruree finished the half with their third point.
The start of the second half was an exact copy of the first quarter of the match as Bruree scored their last points of the match but Mungret St. Pauls continued on their scores to comfortably win.
