JUNIOR B HURLING
Mungret St. Pauls 0-12 Na Piarsaigh 4-20
It was a breezy wet evening in Na Piarsaigh on Monday 5 September 2022
when our Junior B hurlers played the hosts. Na Piarsiagh proved too
strong for our players in the second half when legs tired and the rain
During the first half Mungret St. Pauls were holding their own keeping
a tag on the Na Piarsaigh scores but we fell behind and struggled to
catch up. This continued into the second half where Na Piarsaigh shot
bullets into the net that were hard to stop. We still have a game to
play against Claughaun to see if we make the quarterfinals.
We had a 1 point win against Feenagh/Kilmeedy in the latest match in
the Championship which took place away to the hosts last Friday, on a
very wet night!
Full time score MSPCamogie 1-11 Feenagh Kilmeedy 1-10 Well done girls!

The U12 League continued last Thursday night with 2 of our 3 teams
out. One at home to St Ailbes and one away to Tournafulla. Great
performances from both teams – Well done girls!
JUNIOR B FOOTBALL
Mungret St. Pauls 3-13 Kildimo Pallaskenry 4-5
On Thursday 8 September in Pallaskenry our Junior B Footballers got
the better of the host club in a game where goals were plentiful. This
was a tight match where the points scored for Mungret St. Pauls were
what won it for Mungret St. Pauls. Mungret St. Pauls held the lead for
most of the match but Kildimo Pallaskenry kept hitting back. It took
less than ten minutes to level the game for Kildimo Pallaskenry with
their third goal but Mungret St. Pauls did not sit around too long
securing scores both into the net and over the cross bar. It was a
strong finish for Mungret St. Pauls as they held Kildimo Pallaskenry
off from any more scores as they finished in style with a five point
This was the second last game in the group with one final game to play
against Claughuan. Mungret St. Pauls currently sit comfortably on top
of the group with a clean sweep of wins.
Mungret St. Pauls 1-24 South Liberties 2-20
This was a well attended match on Friday 9 September 2022 when our
Limerick Motor Centre sponsored Senior Hurlers took on near
neighbours, South Liberties in Claughaun in the second last group
This game was an important one as we needed the win to help us stay
out of relegation. South Liberties had a better start getting in clean
scores from their own puck outs, they managed to separate the two
sides by three points and hold that lead for most of the first quarter
until a quick shot was struck to the back of the South Liberties goal
to even the scores. South Liberties managed to separate themselves
from us again with another three points before they hit hard at the
score and got a sliotar past our backs to double the difference to six
points. Coming into the break Mungret St. Pauls settled and managed
three points on the trot leaving it to only the 3 points separating
the sides by half time. Mungret St. Pauls 1-10 South Liberties 1-13.
The clock had barely started to tick when Mungret St. Pauls showed
South Liberties they meant business when they leveled the game again.
It was at this point that Mungret St. Pauls hit their stride and went
on a scoring spree, again South Liberties hit back and struck the net
for the second time in the game. Following on from that score came
another 2 points for South Liberties which brought both the teams to
the same scores. There was a great battle on as both sides vied for
the ball and with the game level it was coming down to next shot on
target could win the game and this is what Mungret St. Pauls did as
they struck a neat shot on the run toward the uprights as all the
supporters from both teams held their breath as their eyes followed
the slitor, Mungret St. Pauls went one point up in injury time and the
children behind the goals went bananas.
This was the win Mungret St. Pauls needed and with the result of the
Kildimo Pallaskenry match on Sunday it confirms Mungret St. Pauls stay
in the Senior ranks for 2023 with one last game to play against
Blackrock who currently are on the bottom of the group with no wins.

Mungret St. Pauls 1-11 V. Fr. Caseys 3-6
Having travelled out the road to Abbeyfeale, Mungret St. Pauls U-17
Division 1 footballers came up against a strong Fr. Caseys game on
Sunday, 10 September 2022. Mungret St. Pauls had control of the game
for the most part, with Fr. Caseys trailing. It was two late goals for
Fr. Caseys that changed the result of the game as they just edged
ahead in the end. This does not make a big difference to our team as
they top the table with another two teams, Fr. Caseys and Kildimo
Pallaskenry. This was the last of the group matches for our
footballers as await the semi final fixture.
Well done to our U-12 footballers who had an early start on Saturday
10 of September 2022 as they headed to Ballymacelligot in Co. Kerry
for the Eric Mason tournament. With one team pulling out the host
managed to scrape a second club team together. Mungret St. Pauls had a
good group rounds only loosing to one team the top three teams in our
group ended up on the same points so it came to scores conceded at
which we were the most and this brought us into the Shield Semi Final
against the host replacement team. Mungret St. Pauls easily won this
game and left us to play Keel who we had beaten in the first round of
games. This again was a great game for our players as they used each
player to work the ball up the pitch and kept the score board ticking
over to finish with a comfortable win.
The joint captains Sam Newman and David Buckley accepted the Shield on
behalf of the team. This was a great boost for our players especially
as they were familiar with the team that won the cup, the second
Limerick club in the tournament, Fr. Caseys.
Mungret St. Pauls would like to express their Thanks to
Ballymacelligot GAA club on the hospitality shown to our players and
parents during the day. This was a very well run tournament with each
child getting a good game played.
Mungret St. Pauls 2-3 Dromcollogher Broadford 1-4
There was great excitement within the U-13 hurling group as they
prepared for their first competitive Final on Sunday 11 September 2022
to be played against Dromcollogher Broadford who they had met already
during the year with it ending up level scoring. This team have put in
a big commitment and have progressed massively throughout the year, it
was great to see them be rewarded.
Like the last game it started very tight with both sides settling in
well and getting a point on the score board, Mungret St. Pauls then
pulled ahead with two well played goals in between two points, this
ended up being Mungret St. Pauls full complement of scores with the
second half of 20 minutes still to play.
Dromcollogher Broadford came out strong as a breeze began to favour
them they got important scores in early on from the restart. With the
separating gap closing in, Mungret St. Pauls had to put everything
they had in to keep Dromcollogher Broadford from scoring any more.
Mungret St. Pauls battled hard and with a few close shaves near the
goals the defense kept most of the balls away with only one getting
past into the net. Dromcollogher Broadford really needed a goal to win
but Mungret St. Pauls upped their game as they waited for time to run
out. There was great excitement when the final whistle was blown and
Mungret St. Pauls were announced the winners of the Shield Final for
Division 2 Hurling. Captain Ruairí Dwane was handed the Shield from
Bord na nOg representative, Denis Carroll. Well done to all the
players and coaches involved in this age group, the hard work paid
