Mungret St Paul’s GAA Club Notes:
Feile Peil na nOg:
Mungret St. Pauls 4-3 Fr. Caseys 0-1
Mungret St. Pauls 3-5 Oola 1-4
Mungret St. Pauls 1-5 Monaleen 2-8
On Saturday 25 March 2023 Mungret St. Pauls played host to the Division 1 Football Feile . The pitch was in great condition considering all the rain that had landed in the last week which is a great compliment to our field committee how have been looking after each pitch carefully.
Mungret St. Pauls and Fr. Caseys were the opening game of the day, this started with Mungret St. Pauls hitting the net within the first minute, they continued to add on another two points before half time came. Mungret St. Pauls gave a second better half with Fr. Caseys struggling to get into the game leaving our players with a win on their first game.
The second game against Oola was a more challenging one for our players as they were put to the test against a more physical team. Mungret St. Pauls had a slight lead throughout and with the goals scored they managed to get over the line to pocket their second win.
The final match was a rehersal for the next day which would see Mungret St. Pauls play Monaleen in the Final. Monaleen were the ones who achieved more on the score board to take the win but Mungret St. Pauls put in a fair game and look forward to the final.
Mungret St. Pauls 1-6 Monaleen 1-5
On Sunday 26 March the weather stayed dry for the final although a bit breezy with Mungret St. Pauls having the slight advantage in the first half. Monaleen got the first score in with a point from a free, quickly followed by Mungret St. Pauls getting a good goal and four points up before Monaleen managed a second point in injury time in the first half. The second half Monaleen were not messing around as they shook the net. The rest of the half saw Mungret St. Pauls and Monaleen both taking their scores from frees, Mungret St. Pauls holding onto the narrow lead by their fingertips as the ball was carried up the pitch and yet another free waiting to be scored by our opponents which was successful. It was into injury time and anything could happen as Mungret St. Pauls held onto a one point lead just as the final whistle was blown.
Well done to the U-15 footballers who won the Division 1 Féile Peil na nÓg and go forward to represent Limerick in the Féile later this year.
