On last Sunday Mungret GAA club hosted the Stephen Cahill U10 Football tournament. There were teams from Fermoy, Ballyduff, Clonmel, Adare, St. Joesphs Doorabearfield (2) attending along with two teams from Mungret. There were 170 players taking part. The format was 2 groups of four with three matches being played to determine which finals teams would contest. There were then four finals. The standard of football on display was very entertaining with some great team displays.

Mungret Reds were in group one and in their first match came up against Doorabearfield B. The reds had a good start winning this game easily with resolute defending and good scoring. It has to be said that there was room for improvement in the shooting stakes but overall a good performance and pleased we did not concede a single score. In the second match we came up against Ballyduff from Kerry last years winners. We were very controlled in our approach and won this game just conceding one point. Then it was onto the final group stage match against Fermoy. Both teams had won both previous matches. The game was very balanced with both defences on top. At halftime it was 3 points all mungret points all coming from open play, Fermoys from frees.

The second half was topsy turvy with both teams competing greatly and little quarter given. At the final whistle the game was drawn at 4 points all. When the scoring difference in the previous matches was calculated it emerged Fermoy were to go through to the A final. While we were disappointed not to make the A final after being unbeaten in the group we had the B final to come.

After a break for food and liquids we lined out against a spirited St Joesphs Doorabearfield A team. This match was hotly contested and at half time was level. Unfortunately in the second half we ran out of steam after competing so well we succumbed to a three point defeat. All players were disappointed and some emotional at the loss but after a little reflection took heart in their performances throughout the day. Among these Fintin Fitzgearld, Cian Kinnevane, Marcus Lyons, Cian Maloney (who was captain) stood out. The Mungret reds panel was Fintin o Kelly,Tom Lyold, Conor Morgan, Cian Kinnevane, Cian Maloney, Conor Collins, Fintin Fitzgerald, Marcus Lyons, Diarmuid Hynes, Luke Walsh, Muiris Ahern, Mark O Brien, Cian Baggot, Christopher Mc Sweeney, Jake Foley and James Corcoran.

Mungret whites were in group two and were a mixture of U9s and 10s and as a consequence were a little understrength when coming up against the first teams of St Joesphs Doorabearfield, Clonmel and Adare. It has to be said there was great spirit on the team and the effort. While going down in all matches coaches were delighted to see the commitment and desire in their play. Players who excelled for the Whites were Ciaran O Connor, Christy Carroll, Brian Hassett, Dale McDonagh, Conor Hurley, Darragh Hogan and one for special mention was Amy O Halloran who was outstanding on the day as well as sustaining a knee injury and had to be carried from the pitch which we wish a speedy recovery. The Whites panel were Conor Johnson, Luke Reidy, Sean Morrissey, Brian Hassett, Evan McInerney, Christy Caroll,Darragh Johnson, Conor Hurley, Amy O Halloran, Mark Galvin, Ciaran O Connor, Matthew Barry, Jake O Sullivan, Ross o Carroll, Sean Condon, Denis Dwyer, Dale McDonagh, Conor Galligan, Darragh Hogan.

The overall A team winner was Fermoy

Lastly I would like to thank all the parents for their support and contributions on the day. I would also like to thank all the Mungret referees that took part, the pitch coordinators and Kevin O Hagan for the presentation among other things. I would like to thank S and S recycling (Eddie Storan) and The Wild Geese Restaurant Adare for their sponsorship. A big thank you also to Mungret Ladies for all the catering that was done on the day. Also Special thanks to the U 10 Football coaches Dave Foley, Fintan Hynes, Paul Walsh and Denis Maloney for the work done in the past weeks and on the day.

Lastly a big thank you to the players who were a credit to their club and parents.
