Ladies Football

Mungret St Pauls 0-6 – 6-6 Murroe Boher

On a bright and dry Mother’s Day evening our ladies minor team lined out to face Murroe Boher in the development minor league at home on the Village pitch.  For many of our players this was their first outing of the year and the cobwebs were soon blown away when Murroe Boher took an early lead. Both teams moved the ball well, particularly down the wings with some moves leading to decisive Murroe Boher goals. In the second half, Mungret St. Pauls contested better in midfield and contained the movement of Murroe Boher going forward.

Our backs and goalie did some excellent defending with tackles and blocks preventing Murroe Boher taking many scores, while at the other end, our forwards foraged back and took some excellent points of their own.  Despite the finishing score line of Mungret St Pauls 0-6 to 6-6 for Murroe Boher, it was an entertaining game with many good movements and plenty of promise shown by our ladies.

Lining out for Mungret St. Pauls were : Aine Joyce, Clare O’Meara, Ella Mason, Emma Bourke, Fiona O’Brien, Joanne Foley, Karin Mason, Olivia Kerins, Rachel Fennell, Roisin Moran, Shanan Barron, Sophie O’Brien and Zoe Mangan.

Junior Hurling

In unforgettable weather on Sunday 18 March, Mungret St. Pauls were able to call together a team to start the game in Crecora. It was tough conditions to be playing in, well done to all the players who took to the pitch for both teams, there was delightful news at half time when ref Trevor Mann decided to call the game off as the weather was not making viability easy. These teams will meet later in the year in better conditions.

U-14 Feile Football

Mungret St. Pauls 3-3 – 1-3 Newcastle West

On Sunday 18 March in baltic weather in Askeaton our brave U-14 football players took to the pitch and put in a great first half building up 2 goals. The third goal came in the second half from a well taken penalty this secured their place in the Féile Football final on Easter Sunday against St. Senans.
