LIMERICK JAHC: Saturday saw our Junior A team travel to Croagh to play Monagea in the opening round of the Co Championship. We started well and weathered Monagea’s purple patch towards the end of the first half. Half time score Ahane 1-7 Monagea 1-9. Monagea came out all guns blazing in the second half and blew us out of the water. The lads gave it everything, but Monagea were too strong. Full time score Ahane 1-10 Monagea 5-14.

LIMERICK JAHC: In the opening round of the Woodlands House Hotel Junior A Hurling Championship, we travelled to Kilbreedy to face off against Dromcollogher Broadford in what can only be described as monsoon conditions. The conditions didn't make for free flowing Hurling, for the most part of the first half it was an evenly matched affair with both teams trading scores and being even on a number of occasions. On the 20min mark, Dan Owens got the ball and found the net to give Bally a 1:05-0:05 but 2 unanswered points from Drom narrowed Ballys lead to 1pt at the break,1:05-0:07.
Drom started the brighter in the second half with a point off the mark to level proceedings straight away. The second half was much like the first with both teams trading points and being level on numerous occasions.
Going in to the closing stages, we built up a 3pt lead thanks to some accurate sharp shooting from Dan McGuire, and as the clock entered the red, James Hickey was unceremoniously brought down in the square when a clear goal scoring opportunity was on , Bally were awarded a penalty and Dan Owens stepped up to pop the ball over the bar to put the result beyond doubt. The games ended on a score of 1:13 to 0:12.
Bally Team: Shane O’Neill, Mark O'Dea, Eoin Kloos, Colm O’Riordan, Matt Mitchell, Pa Byrnes, Alan O’Riordan, Jack Owens, Sean Teefy, Eoghan O’Neill, Paul Martin, Micheal Martin, Dan Owens, Enda Frawley, Dan McGuire.

GARY O'CONNELL RIP: It is with great sadness we learned last Tuesday of the passing of Gary O'Connell (25), member of our intermediate football and junior hurling teams following a short illness. Gary was playing football matches up to six weeks ago and for him to have passed away so quickly is devastating for his family, friends and team mates. Gary's father Anthony is an ever-present member of the GAA Club committee and his brother Shane is currently playing with the intermediate footballers.
Gary was a very talented footballer and hurler and was a member of our county junior football winning team of 2020, scoring in the final against Monagea. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his father Anthony, mother Bernie, brothers Robert and Shane, sister Alison and wider family and friends. May he rest in peace. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.
The club would like to thank everyone who helped with parking at the removal and at Gary’s funeral mass. There was also a great turnout of adult players for the guard of honour. A fitting tribute to Gary and the O’Connell family. It was great to see Crecora Manister GAA club at the forefront, in support of members of our Community, at this difficult time.

CLUB LIMERICK DRAW: Congratulations to Tom Shanahan who won €1,000 in the August edition of the Club Limerick Draw.
FAUGHS ALL-IRELAND CENTENARY: This past weekend Faughs hurling club in Dublin commemorated the centenary of their team that won the 1920 All-Ireland senior hurling championship representing Dublin beating Cork 4-9 to 4-3, and who were presented with the Great Western and Railway cup, the predecessor to the Liam McCarthy. The 1920 final was actually played in 1922 with the delay due to the War of Independence occurring in Ireland at the time. An interesting fact to note was that not one of the All-Ireland winning Dublin team was born in the capital. There were three Limerick men on that team, a Mick Neville from Rathkeale and two Crecora men, Martin and Tom Hayes from Bawnacouma, Kilpeacon.
Martin was born in to Timothy and Mary Hayes in 1890. He played his club hurling initially with Fedamore and narrowly missed out on an All-Ireland medal with in 1911 when a dispute over the state of the pitch at Cork's Athletic Grounds saw Limerick refuse to play the final. The Munster council nominated Tipperary in their place and Kilkenny won the final. After moving to Dublin in 1915, he played, typically in the full-back position, for Commercials Hurling Club as well as Faughs. In total, he won three All-Ireland’s with Dublin in 1917, 1920 and 1927- having come out of inter-county retirement and nearing 40 years of age to win the latter. One of the founders of the Garda Hurling Club, he also won an Army championship medal.
Tom was a brother of Martin and was born in 1893. He won five Dublin Senior Hurling Championships, one with Commercials in 1916 and four with Faughs in 1920, 21, 22 & 23. Tom was a regular on Dublin teams from 1914 to 1923 and won an All-Ireland in 1920. Tom Hayes’ son, Christy Hayes, played at centre-back on the last Dublin team to reach an All-Ireland Final in 1961 where they were unlucky to lose by 1 point to Tipperary. 100 years on, Cathal O'Neill has become the latest Crecora man to win an All-Ireland medals with hopefully more to come.

U15 FOOTBALL: Mungret St. Pauls 4-5 Cappagh Rathkeale 1-11 – It was a dry Monday evening on 25 July 2022 when our Division 1 U-15 footballers took the road to the Bog Garden. This was a great exhibition of football from our players as they played out of their skins striking the net when the chance arose while Cappagh Rathkeale went for points. This was an excellent result for our players who top their group with five wins and only one game to go at home against Newcastle West on Monday 8th of August.
U15 FOOTBALL: Mungret St. Pauls 1-6 Crecora Manister 1-9 – On Monday 25 July 2022 in Mungret our second U-15 footballers team played near neighbours Crecora Manister in a clean game with both teams only having 14 players they were evenly matched. There were a lot of wides throughout the game from both sides and both goalies were kept busy deflecting the ball away. Every player on the pitch played their part and worked hard to lead the ball up the pitch. There was around five minutes where Mungret St. Pauls were down to 13 players after a minor injury but luckily a substitute was available from the U-13 training session on the juvenile pitch to fill in for the last ten minutes of the game. Unluckily for Mungret St. Pauls it was while being down a player that Crecora Manister pulled ahead in the game and running out of time Mungret St. Pauls failed to level one last time. A special word of Thanks to the U-13 players who filled in the spaces of absent players due to holidays.
CAMOGIE: Mungret St Paul's Minors travelled to Crecora for their minor quarter final on Sunday evening last. A young Mungret team, minus a few regulars, were always going to be up against it, facing an experienced Crecora side. It took a while for Mungret to come to terms with the pace of the game and Crecora established a healthy early lead. As in previous games though our young girls rallied and fought back to be only two scores down at half time. That fight and spirit carried on into the second half with some excellent passages of play from the girls. In the end though the experience of Crecora won out with them exploiting space to secure two quick goals and seal progression to the semi-final. This Mungret St Pauls group deserve huge credit for their commitment and determination in this year's championship. The future is bright. Full time score: Mungret St Pauls 2-8 Crecora 4-9.
U11 LADIES: We were delighted to have the opportunity to play visiting team Trinity Gaels from Dublin on Saturday as their players travelled down to Limerick! Earlier in the day they took on the ladies gaelic football team, but that didn’t show with both sides took to the pitch for a wonderful camogie display! Well done to all, great to see so many skilful camogie players mad for games and setting personal goals for themselves. A big thanks to all parents who contributed to the catering for after the games in the clubhouse afterwards and to Kevin O'Hagan whos organisations skills showed the day go off without a hitch!
SCOREBOARD VOLUNTEERS: The club will be hosting a number of club championship games in the coming weeks. We are looking for volunteers to man the scoreboard. If you are available to do this please contact the club phone on 085 867 9962.

U17 FOOTBALL: Mungret St. Pauls 4-10 Oola 0-3 – A strong win for Mungret St Pauls U-17 division 1 footballers versus Oola in Doon on Wednesday 27 July 2022. Mungret St. Pauls started strong, with a goal in the first minute but perhaps didn't capitalise offensively, ending the first half 1-6 to 0-1 ahead.  The second half was a similar tale with Mungret St. Pauls winning 4-10 to 0-3. This is the third win from as many games for this team leaving them top of the group with 2 matches to go.
U17 FOOTBALL: Mungret St. Pauls 0-11 Askeaton Ballysteen Kilcornan 3-12 – At home on the Senior pitch on Wednesday 27 July 2022 our second U-17 footballers took on the combined team of Askeaton Ballysteen Kilcornan. They were level on 7 points each at half time but Askeaton Ballysteen Kilcornan hit the net on three occasions which won the match for them. Half way through the group stages this is a third loss for the team with another three to go.
JUNIOR B FOOTBALL: Mungret St. Pauls 1-20 Ballinacurra Gaels 2-5 – Wednesday 27 July our Junior B footballers and Ballincurra Gaels met in the Crescent College Comprehensive pitch. It was Mungret St. Pauls that had a bit of a lead by half time 1-7 to 1-4. Back out it was Mungret St. Pauls that had a better game as Ballincurra Gaels seemed to slow down a bit.
U13 FOOTBALL: Mungret St. Pauls 0-7 Adare 5-7 – On Thursday 28 July 2022 our Division 1 team played Adare in Manor Fields. This is the second round of the group matches with Mungret St. Pauls having won by just one point at home last time there has been an improvement in the players since that match and it showed as the game progressed. Mungret St. Pauls and Adare were in touch with each other on the score board for the first half with Mungret St. Pauls hitting the net twice which helped hold the lead by half time by three points. It was the second half that Mungret St. Pauls dominated and held Adare to only a one point score while Mungret St. Pauls struck some lovely scores to win and keep themselves in second place on the group table with only two matches left to play.
U13 FOOTBALL: Mungret St. Pauls 7-11 Athea 2-7 – Thursday 28 July 2022 our second U-13 team, Division 3, played a very strong game in Athea.

Oola got off to the perfect start scoring a goal in the first 30 seconds of the game, thanks to the Kerry man, John Clifford (no relation to David). Oola went on the score 8 more points in the first half, one of them coming from our veteran Rob O’Grady. The score at half time was Oola 1-8 Fedamore 0-3. Fedamore came back at Oola in the second half as expected and scored a well taken individual goal midway through the second half leaving only 4 points between the teams. Oola hung in there and scored a further 4 points in what was a very sporting and entertaining match, to run out winners on a score line of Oola 1-12 Fedamore 1-6.
