Mungret St. Pauls 3-11 Monaleen 0-2
On Monday 29 August 2022 our U-13 Division 2 hurlers took the road to Monaleen to a play off to decide who they played in the Shield Semi Final later in the week. Mungret St. Pauls proved to be the stronger team from early on with the Monaleen goalie pulling off some spectacular saves.
Mungret St. Pauls 5-13 Mountcollins 5-6
It was a long warm drive for our U-17 Division 3 footballers as they travelled to Mountcollins on Monday 29 August 2022. This was a very high scoring game with some impressive play coming from the field and some strong scores. After three close defeats it was great that Mungret St. Pauls managed to secure a win on this occasion. This team is compiled of mainly 16 year olds who are getting great game time.
Mungret St. Pauls will hold an EGM on Wednesday 7 September 2022 at 9pm sharp in the Community Centre. This is to go through the financial accounts for 2020 and 2021 and an update on the facilities development.

Mungret St. Pauls 1-9 Kildimo Pallaskenry 0-8
This was a great battle between two strong teams of players, there was plenty of action from the throw in to the final whistle when Kildimo Pallaskenry hosted our Division 2 hurlers on Thursday 1 September 2022 in the Shield Semi Final.
Mungret St. Pauls opened the score but Kildimo Pallaskenry were quick to match it. Mungret St. Pauls eventually pulled ahead with two points and held the lead extending it to three points by the final whistle. The second half was a lower scoring half but a cracker of a goal in the opening minutes saw Mungret St. Pauls with a comfortable lead. Kildimo Pallaskenry kept the pressure on all our players as they headed for our goals, the ball was cleared away by our tight marking backs every time.
Well done to our players who have improved their skill as each game is played, they now play Dromcollogher Broadford in the Shield Final. The last time these two sides met in the group stage the score was a draw, your support would be greatly appreciated.
Mungret St. Pauls 3-10 Na Piarsaigh 5-17
In Claughaun on Saturday 3 September our U-15 Hurlers took on Na Piarsaigh in the Division 1 Semi Final. Both sides had met twice already this year with a win and a loss each, this game was the decider, unfortunately for Mungret St. Pauls it was not their strongest game and Na Piarsaigh had control of the game from the start.
Early in the first half Na Piarsaigh had pocketed their first goal which made it hard for Mungret St. Pauls who had not settled into the game yet to build up their fight back, two points within seconds of each other were not enough. It was not until the last few minutes of the first half before Mungret St. Pauls scored another point while Na Piarsaigh had built up a 12 point lead. This team had come back from a similar distance before, but it was not to be Na Piarsiagh had scored their second and third goal before Mungret St. Pauls got a score on the board, they got a point, followed shortly after with a goal and a fifth point. Na Piarsaigh were scoring with ease as Mungret St. Pauls backs worked hard to clear the ball out but the damage was done, time was running out.
This team have put in a lot of work through the year and have done great to get into the Semi Final. We look forward to seeing them back out again next year.
JUNIOR A HURLING
Mungret St. Pauls 0-18 Doon 0-18
On Saturday 3 September 2022 our Junior A hurlers travelled to Caherconlish to play Doon in a tight game where the score leveled many times throughout.
Mungret St. Pauls took an early lead ten minutes. With three minutes left the sides were level but the next few minutes of play saw Doon go two points up by the break- 0-7 to 0-9.
The second half Mungret St. Pauls put in a great effort, Doon held the lead for the first quarter of the match but some simple mistakes put Doon in head again. There was pressure on the goals but each shot was denied with wides coming from both sides, time was ticking away and Doon still had the lead but Mungret St. Pauls put in a great finish and with the last three points of the game left it a draw. While this was not the result the team were looking for it was better to have draw to a loss. This now leaves us in third position in the group with two more games to go.
Mungret St. Pauls 1-17 Garryspillane 2-18
We headed out to Doon on Sunday 4 September 2022 to support our Limerick Motor Centre sponsored Senior Hurlers play Garryspillane in what was expected to be a great game. There was a strong breeze on the night with Mungret St. Pauls not building up enough score difference in the first half with the aid of the wind to help them through the second half.
Both sides started out with two points each, only four minutes in and Garryspillane hit the net. Mungret St. Pauls came back and leveled the game. Both sides were seeking a goal, Mungret St. Pauls Brian Barry went with a strong shot but the Garryspillane goalie blocked that and a rebound shot from Niall Mulcahy while up the other end, Garryspillane kept pressure on our back line but Conor O’Brien got his stick to the sliotar to deny a second goal in the first half for them. Garryspillane went three points up, while Mungret St. Pauls got three more scores in before the break Garryspillane managed one more to hold a one point lead at the break 0-9 to 1-7.
With the clock not long restarted Garryspillane broke through our defences and struck their second goal. Both sides added on one more point. There were fresh legs put on for Mungret St. Pauls and a few minutes later Mungret St. Pauls got the goal they needed to bring them back into the game and only one point behind. Coming into the tenth minute both sides were leveled again but not for long as Garryspillane with the power of the breeze hit three points on the trot. Then it was Mungret St. Pauls turn to get the supporters going by putting three more points on the scoreboard and levelling the game again. A free and point from play for us had the Mungret St. Pauls supporters urging on their players as we started to take the game in hand and time running out. Unfortunately for us, Garryspillane upped a gear and closed the game out in style finishing off with six unanswered points and leaving a four point win for the bouncers.
Mungret St. Pauls have another two games to play, the next one is Friday night against South Liberties who sit just above us on the table, a win here would leave us in a better position.
