They now will play Tipperary in the Semi Final of the Munster Senior Football Championship on Saturday May 14th at 7pm in FBD Semple Stadium Thurles.

Hard luck to Katie O Mahony and Emma O Rourke who had a loss to Clare at u16 level.
A huge congrats to MSPCamogies Ailbhe Larkin who started for Limerick Camogies Senior Team on Saturday 23rd April. Ailbhe is the first camogie player to ever start from Mungret St Pauls at Senior adult level! This is a fantastic achievement, and although the result didn’t go Limericks way on the day, we wish Ailbhe the very best of luck in the future. It also must be said, she left a great impression on the girls she coached last week in our Easter Camogie Camp. Long may she reign!
As well as Ailbhe, we had plenty of camogie players donning the green jersey for Limerick at the weekend. From Amy O’Halloran who was on the Minor Panel who beat Tipperary on the 23rd to Olivia Kerins on the Junior Panel who unfortunately lost V Waterford in Effin. We also had Aoife Lyons, Cliona Byrne and Lily Quinn who won the Munster U16B final V Clare on Saturday. Finally, well done to Molly Tobin, Sarah Horgan, Jayne Casey, Jillian Buckley and Clodagh Nestor who were part of 2 fantastic U15 Limerick Panels who played Clare on Thursday night and came away with the wins after two super performances!
Great news in from Salesian College, Pallaskenry who won the LIT Sports Senior C Football Final today. Well done to Mungret St. Pauls players Adam Coffey, Conor White, Ciaran Uwatse, Cillian O’Gorman, Jack McCarthy and Oisin Moss.
On Monday 25 April 2022 there were two very different games played as our older team headed out to Glin where they played Shannon Gaels, Athea, this was a game that was lead by Mungret St. Pauls from the start as Shannon Gaels Athea struggled to get on target. There was some very impressive play through out with players using each other to work the ball around the pitch. The final score U-15 Division 1 Football 3-12 Shannon Gaels Athea 0-9
Our U-15 Division 3 Football were home to Monaleen and with a later start than expected it was Monaleen that showed their hand early and Mungret St. Pauls played catch up for the rest of the match. There were some great breaks with the ball seeing the other goals but unfortunately Monaleen were waiting to pounce at every turn. Final score U-15 Division 3 Football 2-3 Monaleen 5-10.

On Sunday 24th April, the U15 #MSPCamogie girls represented Mungret St Pauls in the 2022 Limerick Féile.
A sunny Mick Neville Park played host to 20 clubs across three divisions. It was great to see all the clubs gathered in one location this year, providing a real sense of occasion for the girls. Mungret were drawn against Blackrock Effin, Granagh Ballingarry, Bruff and Na Piarsaigh in a tough B division. The Mungret girls played against eventual champions Blackrock Effin in the first round and found it tough to adjust to the whirlwind format of 10 minute a side camogie, where fast starts and goals are all important. The girls settled after the first match and started to show their ability as the games progressed but sadly failed to qualify from the group. 20 girls donned the red and white of Mungret on the day, with many younger girls making their Féile debuts. As ever the younger girls gave their all and did not look out of place on the big stage. The future is bright and the experience will stand to them all when next year’s event comes around.
EASTER CAMOGIE CAMP
On Tuesday 19th April, we welcomed 130 enthusiastic camogie players from the age of 5 up to 14 for what can only be described as a jam packed 3 days. Donned in their fabulous new camogie kits, they certainly looked the part!
With an average of 25 coaches on hand each day, including some high-profile guest coaches, the camp ran like clockwork – with the weather even pulling out all the stops for the final 2 days.
It’s safe to say that the camp exceeded expectations from a camogie player and coach point of view. The camp finished on a high with a feast provided to us by the gang at HellsBBQ.
Thanks so much to everyone involved!
See ye all next year – for an even bigger and better camp!
Mungret St. Pauls 0-5 Pallasgreen 4-7
On Thursday 28 April 2022 in Kilteely Dromkeen our second U-13 hurlers took on Pallasgreen. We were up against a stronger team but every Mungret St. Pauls player put everything they had into the game. There were some great blocks and tackles throughout with our goalie getting a lot of saves in. This team is out again in two weeks time.
Mungret St. Pauls 0-21 Patrickswell 3-16
The meeting of Mungret St. Pauls and Patrickswell took place in Mungret on Saturday 30 April 2022. This was a great display of hurling which was well supported by our members. Patrickswell had a goal and four point lead built up before Mungret St. Pauls replied well with 7 unanswered points levelling the game. Both sides shared the next four points coming into the half time break but it was Patrickswell that finished better with a point and a ball in the next just on the whistle.
Back out Patrickswell had the stronger start dividing the two sides by 11 points which were made up by their third goal. Mungret St. Pauls upped their game and brought the score back to a manageable difference but time ran out leaving a four point difference.
CUMANN NA NBUNSCOIL
