Mungret/St Paul’s GAA Club Notes:
Congratulations to Mungret St. Pauls players Ciarán Maher, Hugh Battelle, Eoghan Hardiman and Ruadhán Ó hAnnaidh as they represented their schools Módhscoil and Gaelscoil an Ráithín and our own club, Mungret St. Pauls on the Limerick City Sarsfield U13 football team. The Final against the West team took place on Tuesday 21 November in the Gaelic Grounds and we are delighted for the team and players as they came out victorious. Captain of the team, Ruadhán accepted the cup on behalf of the team.
Well done boys, it is not only a great honor to play in the Gaelic grounds but to win there is extra special.
One last week to go, Thank you so much to everyone so far who is taking part or has donated to our Movember 2023. We have already hit our target, well done, but there is never any limit to what can be donated to such a great cause.
The itchy stage has gone and now it is into working out what style to go for as you can see from some of our men.
Remembering what Movember is all about and promoting men’s health and wellbeing as our members Grow a Mo for Joe.
Our link to donate to Milford Hospice is available in our profile on all our social media.
We are delighted to have #MSPCamogie player Niamh Stackpoole named in the 2024 U16 Limerick Camogie panel.
Niamh is the best example of a camogie player a club could ask for. She is consistent, skillful, dedicated and turns up every day with a smile on her face. Always willing to volunteer around the club too, between camogie camps and cul camps and as a result our younger players look up to her in awe.
We wish Niamh the very best of luck for the season ahead.
Mungret St. Pauls 1-9 Roanmore 0-2
It was a very damp day in Waterford on Sunday 26 November 2023 when they played Roanmore in the Munster Semi Final. There was great support that Mungret St. Pauls had on the day and we thank everyone who traveled to support the players. This was a great game for Mungret St. Pauls as we put on a great display of football, Roanmore were unable to stop our players running up the pitch. An early attempt on goals from Roanmore was denied as our goalie got his hand to direct it away from the net. It took Roanmore sixteen minutes to get their first score up in reply to Mungret St. Pauls two points. In the next minute Mungret St. Pauls ran up the pitch and a quick pass infront of the goals saw it lobed over the goalie into the top corner of the goal to excel the Mungret St. Pauls score.
It looked like Roanmore were going to produce another score but they never converted any other chance in the first half as Mungret St. Pauls added on another three points to close the half 1-5 to 0-1.
The second half, Roanmore started a more physical game but they soon reverted to their first half style and yet again failed to make chances to convert scores with most of the attempts stopping at our goalies hands. Mungret St. Pauls were on a roll as they intermediatly topped up the score. It took Roanmore into the last quarter before they scored their second point of the game. Mungret St. Pauls topped off the score on 1-9 to 0-2.
They now see themselves against a Cork team, Cill Na Martra in the final on the weekend of the 9 December. Well done to the players and management, this is the first Munster Final our club has gotten to. History in the making.
Well done to the Minor team , who over came GalteeGaels in Championship semi last sunday after extra time, Final score Mungret 3.08 to 2.05. Details for Final yet to be confirmed.
We thought our adult mens and Juvenile Hurling and football haul of trophies were impressive until our U-11 players rocked up with their 5 trophies/ shields that they have won this year.
A great group of players who took on every challenge thrown at them with great pride for Mungret St. Pauls.
Well done to all the players and management.
