Exciting times for Mungret St. Paul’s

Declan Browne, Mungret St. Paul's captain, receives the Junior Hurling Cup from Gerry McNamara, Limerick County Board.

MUNGRET St. Paul’s are in hurling dreamland, and courtesy of their thrilling win over Feenagh/Kilmeedy in the Junior A Final, will now field teams at both senior and intermediate grade in 2024.

At Kilmallock’s Fitzgerald Park, the junior side clinched victory courtesy of a penalty shoot-out, with goals secured by Mark O’Brien, Declan Browne, Cian Moloney and JJ Harrington.

Browne, who captained the side, also saved a couple of penalties.

Sponsor Conor Fitzgerald – himself a noteworthy past dual player with the county – was on hand to present O’Brien with his player-of-the-match award, while club stalwart Gerry McNamara, on behalf of the County Board, presented Browne with the cup.

On Saturday, Mungret meet Dromcollogher/Broadford in the Intermediate Football Final in Askeaton (3pm), and the following afternoon contest the Junior A Final against Camogue Rovers in Fedamore, 12 noon.
