MUNGRET ST. PAUL’S
It was great to see so many #MSPCamogie players attend the Senior Camogie Quarter finals in Thurles on Saturday. Here we have Alice, Amy, Beatrice, Elodie & Saoirse out in force to support Ailbhe Larkin, Aoife Morrissey & all on the Limerick Camogie squad as they took on Waterford.
A gutsy display from Limerick, who gave it their everything, especially in the second half. We are very proud of you all! Full time score: Limerick 1 – 12 Waterford 3 – 16.
#MSPCamogie continue to be well represented at U16 & U15 levels in Limerick, with Cliona Byrne, Jayne Casey, Sarah Horgan, Jillian Buckley, Clodagh Nestor and Molly Tobin wearing the green and white with pride. Well done girls!
Last Thursday night our U12s hosted Crecora, Monaleen, St Ailbes and Kildimo Pallaskenry for a county blitz.
#MSPCamogie fielded 2 teams, which is just great to see, especially at this time of year when holidays are in full swing.
All teams were well matched and are a credit to themselves, their clubs and families, with some great skills and sports(wo)mans ship on display. Keep up the great work and thanks for taking part!
And on the 12th July, our U12s had 4 fantastic games in Croagh for their county blitz v the hosts, Patrickswell, Ballybrown & Granagh Ballingarry. Each girl in red and white is a fantastic ambassador for the sport, our club and their families. Keep up the great work girls – yer FLYIN!
Mungret St. Pauls 2-6 Galbally 1-8
On a surprising cool damp July 19th evening, Mungret St. Pauls footballers took on Galbally in the U-19 Premier football championship in Galbally with both teams having already qualified for a semi-final slot. At stake was position for the semi-final draw.
The game threw in on the dot of 19:30 with Galbally winning the throw in. Both teams were rather wasteful in front of goal with numerous turn overs, drop short kicks and wides by both teams, more so on the Mungret side until finally Galbally broke the deadlock with a poorly cleared dropping ball that was pounced on and buried in the Mungret net.
The game continued in this vein until Mungret finally broke their duck with a slick passing move up through the middle before the Galbally keeper was beaten with a goal. Co-scor.
Both teams traded three points each after this before a David Guilfoyle kick, into the wind, dropped short but over the Galbally goalies head and was met by JJ Harrington who deflected the ball into the Galbally net. Half time score Mungret St Pauls 2:3 , Galbally 1:3.
The first half saw three yellow cards, one for Mungret and two for Galbally.
Second half started as the first with Galbally winning the throw in and with both teams’ shooting somewhat off target… with Mungret missing four shots in a row and Galbally missing two, all wides, before Galbally broke the deadlock with a point although Mungret followed up with a point of their own. Tempers started to fray a bit but Galbally’s shooting boots were very much on target during the second half racking up a further five shots on goal for four points and one more wide. Mungret had five more shots for two points, two wides and one drop short.
The second half was definitely a more testy experience with six more yellow cards raised by the ref, three for each team.

Mungret St. Pauls 3-6 Ballybricken Bohermore Fedamore 2-2
On Thursday 21 July 2022 in Fedamore our second U-13 hurling team took on Ballybricken Bohermore Fedamore. This was a game of skill and team work as each player gave everything they had. The host team got an early goal leaving Mungret St. Pauls playing catch up but they worked the ball up the pitch and took their chance on score when it arose and before long after scores on both sides Mungret St. Pauls had a one point lead by the half time whistle- 1-4 to 2-0.
The second half had the same intensity as the first but Mungret St. Pauls held the lead to the end after adding on another two well taken goals.
Well done to our young players who have shown great improvement as each match is played.
Mungret St. Pauls 1-2 Dromcollogher Broadford 0-5
It was a warm but breezy Saturday morning, 23 July 2022, when our U-13 Division 2 hurlers arrived in Dromcollogher.
The game had just started slow with a few wides for both sides but Dromcollogher Broadford managed to get three balls over the bar before the half time whistle. The second half was a better game for Mungret St. Pauls even though the host team added on another two points Mungret St. Pauls put in a powerful display and with two balls pointed there was a strong shot to the back of the net to level the sides. Both sides upped their game for the last few minutes but no further scores were produced.
Well done to Mungret St. Pauls Daniel O’Connell & Conor Mangan who were playing Football for Limerick U-15 this morning and beat Sligo by a point after extra time in LIT in their semi-final. A great result at the end of a long battle.
The second Limerick U-15 football team lost to Antrim in Dundalk, Mungret St. Pauls had Conor O’Longaigh & Liam Ahern on that panel.
Well done to all our players.
