Mungret/St Paul’s GAA Club Notes:

Junior B Football:
Mungret St. Pauls 3-9 St. Kierans 1-13
It was a sunny Monday, 27 May 2024 in Askeaton when our Junior B Footballers took on St. Kierans in the Junior B Football West Final. This was a great game, where goals separated the teams. A penalty for Mungret St. Pauls gave them a seven point lead with ten minutes left to play in the first half, it was at this point that St. Kierans upped their game and brought it back to four points by the half time whistle. Mungret St. Pauls 1-7 St. Kierans 0-6.
The Second half, and St. Kierans came out fighting again and in five minutes managed to score two points and a penalty gave them a one point lead for a few minutes until Mungret St. Pauls returned to scoring ways with a well worked goal returned the lead to them. Four points for St. Kierans with no reply returned ownership of the game to them. Mungret St. Pauls kicked it up another bit and leveled the game with ten minutes left, this lead to a lot of back and forth with no scores coming from either side, it was looking like it was going to go to extra time until the ball came bouncing toward the St. Kierans goal and helped along into the back of the net. The challenge now was to hold possession of the ball as time ran out, St. Kierans slipped one more ball over the bar but the full time whistle was a welcome noise as Mungret St. Pauls succeeded in winning the West Junior B Football League cup. Captain, Peter Harrington accepted the cup on behalf of the team from the West Board official Jim Enright. Well done to the team and management on their win, they now play Bruree in the County Semi Final.

MNÁ Camogie:
Last Thursday night saw the kick off of our MNÁ programme!
Over the next 4 weeks, participants will be covering 7 of the fundamental skills of camogie under the watchful eye of MNÁ
coordinator/U12 camogie coach Deirdre Hussey as well as some U14 players and guest coaches along the way!
The role which these women and and will play in passing on their intrinsic knowledge of the game (to our young players in particular) is a key reason behind this programme and the part which they can play as positive role models for our girls – leaning into the #CantSeeCantBe mantra which is echoed across #MSPCamogie
You are all helping make a big difference – we see you and thank you for that.
Keep an eye on socials for updates over the next few weeks!

U10 Camogie:
Our U10s had a great Saturday at #MSPCamogie HQ when they welcomed Monaleen & Crecora for a mini-blitz!
Each team were well able for each other and it was great to see all the hard work they put into their training sessions shining through on the pitch! Thanks to all the coaches for organising and to everyone who brought goodies, it’s greatly appreciated!

U12 Camogie:
Our U12s headed to NaPiarsaigh on Thursday night as part of the spring development initiative. They had a great night of games! Well done all!

Primary School:
As part of building our relationship with local primary schools, 2 separate blitzes were held at Mungret GAA on Monday 20th May & 27th May.
Children from St Pauls, St Nessans, Educate Together, Gaelscoil an Ráithín & Roxborough took part in both hurling/camogie blitz. Blitzes were v successful & great fun was had by all. A special thank you goes to the teachers, pitch co-ordinators and Mungret Community College TY students who all helped out on both days.

U-14 Hurling:
Both our U-14 hurlers were playing at home on Thursday 30 May 2024. The Division 1 team were on the Senior pitch playing Murroe Boher. Mungret St. Pauls took an early lead in the first half closing it out with their first goal giving them a four point lead heading into the second half. Mungret St. Pauls reopened the game with a second goal but it was Murroe Boher that got the scores for the next fifteen minutes with them taking the lead having scored three points and two goals. A strong finish from Mungret St. Pauls saw them win their first match in this group after three games.
Mungret St Paul’s 3-6 Murroe Boher 2-7
The Division 3 team were in the Crescent Comprehensive where they played an excellent game against a skilful Coshlea Gaels team. The final score does not properly reflect the skill that was on display from both sides, Mungret St. Pauls were very strong in defence as they took on every ball coming toward them. There was great team work throughout and the results showed at the end of the game, a second win out of three games.
Mungret St Pauls 4-11 Coshlea Gaels 1-6
