Mungret/St Pauls GAA Club Notes:

Limerick Players:
Well done to Sive Finnerty, Emma Somers, Eilish O Neill, Sophia Neville who represented Mungret very well with the Limerick u14 Football Team last weekend in the All Ireland Series Final. Although it wasn’t the outcome we had hoped for, these ladies were fantastic on the day, and as a club we are very proud of them.

U-13 Football:
Mungret St. Pauls had both our U-13 Footballers out on Monday 10 June 2024 with the Division 1 team in Monagea playing the hosts in a game crammed full of skill. A strong lead was built up by the end of the first half which helped them through to the second half. Monagea kept the pressure on in the second half but Mungret St. Pauls proved too strong and ended the game with their third win in their fourth game.
Mungret St. Pauls 4-2 Monagea 2-4.
The Division 3 team were playing in Bruree in their fifth game. Mungret St. Pauls had a great first half building up a strong leading score, Killacolla Gaels came back out stronger but it was Mungret St. Pauls that were more direct in their scores and took the win at the final whistle. This is a second win for this team as they are our U-12 team playing mainly 13 year olds.

Ladies Football:
Well done to the two u14 teams who were in semi finals last week, first team at home playing GalteeGaels and came away with a victory details of County League final to follow. To the U13 girls who put in a great battling performance in their league semi final v Granagh Ballingarry. The girls started slowly, and although they were on top in the second half and trailed by just a single point with 10minutes to go, they couldn’t quite complete what would have been a remarkable comeback. Focus now switches to preparing for the championship later in the summer.

Junior B Football:
Mungret/St.Pauls 1-7 St. Kierans 1-9
On Thursday, 13 June 2024 in Askeaton our Junior B Footballers were prepared for the County League final against St. Kierans. This is the third time these two sides met already this year but it was not a favourable result for us. The whole game was quite tight as both teams saw time with a point or two ahead only for the other side to return with a reply with a score. It came down to the wire where both sides were level going into the last ten minute of the game. It was St. Kierans who broke the draw and added again to it before the final whistle leaving St. Kierans accepting the County trophy.
The focus now turns to Championship with us wishing all our teams the very best of Luck in all matches for the remainder of the year.
