Mungret St. Pauls 3-3 Templeglantine Knockaderry 2-8
On Thursday 27 August 2020 in Mungret the U-16 camogie girls took on an equally skilled Templeglantine Knockaderry team. For most of the match the weather stayed dry with a little bit of drizzle around the first water break time, this did not effect either team.
The visitors got the game started with 2 points up but Mungret St. Pauls were not long in catching up. Templeglantine Knockaderry got one more point in before the water break with Mungret St. Pauls rocking Templeglantine Knockaderry when they returned to the pitch snatching 3 goals in quick succession while Templeglantine Knockaderry only scored three points to leave the score 3-2 to 0-6, Mungret St. Pauls with a five point lead.
The second half was Templeglantine Knockaderrys, but it was the goalies on both teams that had to put in a lot of the work as there was constant pressure put on the backs and some close calls on goal scores with the goalies getting their hurley in the way. Mungret St. Pauls only managed one more point in this half while Templeglantine Knockaderry regained the lead with 2 goals and 2 points.

Well done to everyone who attended the Kellogs Cul Camp this year and of course all the organisers who helped make it happen. The weather threw a bit of a spanner in the works at times and made for an exciting finish to Thursday. It is always great to see a strong camogie and ladies football presence there at our camps each year. We were the only Limerick Cul Camp last week which meant we were spoilt with the amount of Cul Camp coaches who put our 200 players through their paces. We could not have run the camp with out the help of our club volunteers who were put to work straight away getting all the children signed in, Covid checked and into their groups on the pitch. It has taken 24 coaches and about 6 Cul Camp supervisors to make this camp run smoothly, we are delighted to have two of our own players involved as coaches- Eoin Ryan (Bosco) and Patrick Dwane.
We had a surprise visitor on Friday as Aaron Gillane came along and had a chat with each group of children. There were some very interesting questions asked of Aaron but none too hard that he could not answer.
The juvenile club hosted their medal presentation on Friday 3 January in the club house. Club Chairman, Brian O’Halloran started the proceedings as he welcomed everyone and wished all the players the best of luck in the season ahead.
Liam O’Gorman gave Liam O’Donoghue a great introduction as he took over the mike to say his few words on his thoughts of how the teams played during the year, that they were an impressive group to watch play. Liam O’Donodghue also gave a few words of encouragement to the players for the season ahead and indeed for their future in playing as senior players with the club. Paul Walsh was called up to help Liam O’Donoghue present the U-14 Footballers their medals.
When the players had received their medals, Liam O’Gorman explained how the U-16 footballers and hurlers have won for many consecutive years and not by luck but by sheer hard work. Each player was then called up individually to accept their medals from Liam O’Donoghue.
Liam O’Gorman then reminded each player it is their club as well as it is the coaches and supporters club and they need to look out for each other and help each other along.
The Juvenile Chairman, John Rochford had a few words to say to close the night out as he congratulated the players for all their hard work which payed off for them and he reminded players to talk to each other and mind each other through the years ahead.
Thank you to everyone who attended on the night.
Mungret St. Pauls were delighted to host a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Junior Hurlers win against Bruff on Saturday 7 December 2019, it was a great night with a fantastic attendance. Mike O’Connell got the night going after pausing for a minute silence for those involved with the team that had passed on he went on to introduce Eamonn Cregan who some great words to say to the audience. Brian O’Halloran then said a little bit about how far the club has come since 1969. Mike O’Connell than introduced each player and manager individually and invited Pa O’Brien and Eamonn Cregan to present a certificate in recognition of the teams achievement along with a pen. The night did not end there as there was a man of the match award, this went to Tony Cronin who came from the other side of the world (Australia) to be able to attend on the night. The night closed off with a bit of music being played in the lounge. Thank you to all who had a part in organising the night and helping out on the night itself.
