Mungret St Paul’s 1-15 Banogue 1-10
Our junior footballers took a second win of the championship campaign in Rathkeale on Sunday evening, 10 July 2022, to leave them at the top of the table on 4 points from 2 games with 3 games yet to play. The competition resumes in August when they face South Liberties and Ballybricken-Bohermore. They have built on the run of form which saw them win the city-east intermediate league and narrowly lose to Croom in the county league final.
In this game, they had a convincing win over Banogue on a scoreline of 1-15 to 1-10 in Mediterranean conditions out in Mick Neville Park. Leading 5 to 2 at the first revival of the water-break, they pushed on to lead by 9-4 at half-time. The team continued the good form in the second half, leading by 6 at the water break and by 8 nearing the end when a last minute goal for the opposition put some gloss on the scoreline.
It was a good team performance where everyone played their part, from Darren Coffey with a fine save at a crucial time in the second half to Conor Garvey who hit a vital 1-1 following that from his customary position close to the opposition goals and Cian O’Doherty who was dominant at midfield. Six players contributed to the scoreline, with Eoin Ryan pointing a pair of 45s which would not have been out of place in Croke Park earlier in the day.
The intermediate football side scored an all-too-easy win over a heavily-depleted Fr Caseys side on a scoreline of 6-16 to 0-2, having led by 3-6 to no score at half-time. Goals came from Dara Bridgeman, Brendan Giltenane, Killian Ryan and Shane Barry.
With 4 points on the board and ready to challenge for the knockout stages, the team has a break now until mid-August when they will meet Drom-Broadford and Rathkeale, both of whom have 2 points from 2 games played.
Mungret St. Paul’s 2-17 Newcastle West 1-21
The Premier U-19 Hurlers had to travel in the heat to Newcastle West where an outstanding game of Hurling unfolded for their supporters. Both sides played out of their skins in the warm weather with very little between the two sides but Newcastle West were the better performers on the night taking the one point win.
Mungret St. Pauls 4-9 Monaleen 2-4
On a cracking sunny Tuesday evening July 12th 2022 when Mungret St Pauls welcomed Monaleen to a lively U-13 Division 2 game of hurling.
It took Mungret St Paul’s the first ten minutes to get settled until they rattled the net twice in quick succession. Once they did so they were in good form and pushed on.
A good display of hard work and determination put them in the driving seat at half time. Monaleen started well in the second half but Mungret St Paul’s stood up to the task playing some great hurling, adding a further two goals and scored some great individual and team points. Mungret St Paul’s can be thankful to their goalkeeper who made some great saves throughout the game.
This was a great result and well done to the players and coaches.
Mungret 3-8 St. Patricks 3-11
The Division 3 Football team went to Rhebogue on Tuesday 12 July 2022 to play St. Patricks, this was a tight match with both sides giving everything they had. Mungret St. Pauls were just shy of 4 points to St. Patricks score.

On Wednesday 13 July 2022 in Mungret, the division 1 game started slowly with both teams evenly matched exchanging points at each end . After 15 mins Mungret St. Pauls kicked on after getting two well worked goals in quick succession . After this they tagged along a few more points and led 2-6 to 2 at half time .
In the second half they kept the scoreboard ticking. A consolation penalty got a goal on the board for Cappagh/Rathkeale . Other then that it was a clinical performance from the Mungret u17s . Final score 4-13 Mungret St Paul’s to 1-6 Cappagh/Rathkeale.
This was a great crowd pleasing game as a bus load of Argentinian supporters were learning the way the game was played and even stayed round to get photographs with the referee at the end.
Mungret St. Pauls 3-11 Na Piarsaigh 3-8
These two sides met each other only last month in the Feile competition with Na Piarsaigh winning on that occasion. This meeting of the two sides on Tuesday 14 July 2022 shadowed the previous game and Mungret St. Pauls who had travelled to Caherdavin proved how you can never give up on a game when you are down at half time.
It was Na Piarsaigh that took the first half steadily building to an eight point lead by the break but Mungret St. Pauls kept their head up and showed what can be done if you never give up as they leveled the game in the second half and then went on to add on the final scores to take the win. This was a brilliant game with Mungret St. Pauls showing great heart.
Mungret St. Pauls 6-9 Claughaun 1-1

Mungret St. Pauls 1-12 Ballybricken Bohermore Fedamore 2-10
On Wednesday 15 July 2022 in Ballybricken there was a spirited game between Mungret St. Pauls and the hosts with each player getting on the ball and making use of it. There were some spectacular scores from both sides along with strong defending and tackling. The score was tight in the end with Ballybricken Bohermore Fedamore edging a win by just one point.
It seems like forever that our team of 6- Breandain, Catherine, Thiago, Meghann, Conor and Katie took on Na Piarsaigh in the Go Gasta. The program aired on TG4 on Sunday 17 July 2022. Thank you to our six heroic participants who really put in some hard work in very tough conditions back in October last year. It was tight in the end but unluckily for our members it was Na Piarsiagh that took the honors on the day. Well done to all our members who followed the event through out the day, the club and facilities looked fantastic on the show and each of our six contestants spoke very well and represented Mungret St. Pauls with great pride.
