Mungret St. Pauls 2-11 Doon 0-11
The wind and rain never let up in Rathkeale when our U-21 hurlers played Doon in the Premier Semi Final on Monday 14 November 2022. This was one of the best games from our players as they stopped current champions, Doon to book our place in the Final.
Doon had a better start going three points to one up, but going into the second quarter of the game Mungret St. Pauls found their footing and scored four points without reply to lead. There was an exchange of points leaving the two sides level with six points going in at half time.
The key moment in the game was just after the restart as Mungret St. Pauls netted their first goal as the Doon goalie went to get the sliotar into his hand but an unfortunate fumble saw it go over the line, this was quickly followed up by a very well taken shot to the bottom left corner of the net. From this moment on Doon were under pressure to scrape back scores but Mungret St. Pauls dominated for the rest of the game. For every point that Doon scored Mungret St. Pauls had a reply to keep the goals separating the sides. While every player played their part in the win, we have to commend our goalie who pulled off some savage saves that were destined for goals. He kept a clean sheet but was put under severe pressure from Doon who were desperately seeking goals near the end of the game. We now play neighbours Ballybrown in the final.
Huge congratulations to our very own Amy O’Halloran and the entire Limerick Camogie Minor Panel for 2023!
Amy continues to do us proud both on and off the pitch and is a fantastic ambassador for the club and inspiration to all our younger players.
Congrats galore also to dual player Niamh Stackpool and the Limerick Team who came out as winners at the recent U14 All Ireland Football Blitz.
Your friends and coaches at MSPCamogie are delighted for you! And of course Anna Coughlan, Molly O’Mahony and Caoimhe Hennessy from Mungret St Pauls were also on the team doing the club proud!
Huge well done to the U19 team who beat Monagea by a single point in a brilliant contest. Mungret were down 5 points at half time and put in a sterling performance and came back to clench victory.

Mungret St. Pauls 0-13 Ballybrown 0-20
It was not the result we were looking for on Sunday 20 November 2022 in Ballyagran when our U-21 Hurlers met with Ballybrown for the final. The weather was more gentle on us this time compared to the last few matches, we played with the breeze in the first half but failed to keep the pressure on as Ballybrown cleaned up in the last quarter of the match.
Both teams are no strangers to each other as they have met many times through the years. There was very little separating the sides at the start but Ballybrown started to put a bit of light between us in the second quarter of the match going three points up but Mungret St. Pauls kept going and by the half time whistle there were two points between the two teams Mungret St. Pauls 0-8 Ballybrown 0-10.
With the clock barley started Mungret St. Pauls slotted a ball over the bar. There was an exchange of scores but Mungret St. Pauls managed an extra one to level the game on 12 points each but this is where Ballybrown took over and Mungret St. Pauls took a back seat. Ballybrown went on to out score Mungret St. Pauls by seven points, we got a bit of a break near the end with a penalty but the Ballybrown goalie pulled off a great save and it was only a matter of a few minutes before the final whistle was blown and Ballybrown declared U-21 Premier Hurling Champions. Well done to all our players who put in a lot of work to get us through to another day out at a final, unfortunately we did not get to celebrate but there is always next year.
