Our under 16s travelled to Granagh Ballingarry last Saturday for the cup semi-final against the hosts. This was always going to be a difficult match for us, and we were slow to get started on a very warm evening. We trailed 0-7 to 0-1 at half time, but started putting over points and bringing the game much more to our opponents in the second half. However the goal we needed just would not come, and we lost in the end 0-12 to 0-5. However, the team deserves huge credit for fighting to the end. They had not won a competitive match for two years until one month ago, and to win three in a row in three weeks to qualify for the cup was a great achievement.
Another hot Saturday saw our U7s take on Monaleen in a blitz at their main grounds. Well done to all 25 players that sweated their way through 4 rotating matches, they’ve really improved across all areas. Meanwhile, the U6 were going through their paces in their usual Saturday morning session. A well deserved break has been earned by both sets of U7 and U6 having gone non-stop for several months now. We’ll break until Monday August 16th when we return for hurling then for U7s and anyone aged under 6. Well done and a big thanks to all the coaches who have led their teams and groups through the training sessions.
Mungret St. Pauls 1-1 Patrickswell 2-5
On a very warm Thursday, 22 July our second U-13 hurling team were at home when they played Patrickswell. There were some great sequences of passes and some great defensive performances throughout the game. Patrickswell were a strong team but Mungret St. Pauls never gave up and continued to keep the pressure on which ment Patrickswell only managed to score 2 points in the second half. This was the last match in the group for our younger team, the older team, Division 1 still have 2 more matches to go.
Congratulations to the Limerick Minor Football team on their great win on Wednesday night. Mungret St. Pauls were proud to have Jack Sommers representing us on the pitch.
