Clontarf 22 Cork Con 13

Result: Senior XV 22 - 13 Cork Constitution

This has got to go down as one of the most satisfying victories in years. And I include the UBL final win in that assessment. We have always known that there was an abundance of skill in the Clontarf squad. We knew they had heart and application also but until, you are truly tested in […]

Weather is a great leveller in rugby. The great handicap committee from the sky. Sometimes the gods of sport deem that for one night only the scales will be balanced by a sloppy night, a wet ball, and a referee who decided that the offside line was to be policed by ….. Someone else somewhere […]

DUFC 0 – Clontarf 29

Fixture: Senior XV v Dublin University

Happy New Year and Happy New Mick! The second half of the season saw Clontarf travel to the iconic home of the oldest continuous rugby club in the World. Not a bad label to have? I have to admit I love College Park. DUFC, or Trinity as they are more generally referred to, regularly present […]

Result: Senior XV 16 - 14 Garryowen

Clontarf registered their first home victory of the 16/17 campaign on Saturday against a young Garryowen outfit who structured their game to avoid the heavy stuff and to move the big home pack around. So what transpired was a game of heavy carrying by the home side against fizzy counterattacking by the Munster team. The […]

Given the day that was in it; the All Ireland final and all that, special mention to the dirty dozen or so Clontarf supporters who braved the journey to Tom Clifford Park more in hope than expectation given that recent reports had Munsters mullering Con in Cork while we were struggling to generate momentum against […]

Clontarf 20 St Marys 23

Result: Senior XV 20 - 23 St Mary’s

Apologies for the lack of report for the UCD victory. I was away last week and rugby was the farthest thing from my mind. Saturdays defeat to St Marys on the All-weather pitch can be put down to a fine kicking display from the young Marys out half. He contributed 13 points from the boot […]

AIL Final – Match Report

At the final whistle in the Aviva on Sunday the abiding memory for me is the sound of monkeys coming off backs among the Clontarf faithful. The magnificent fight back from Cork Con in the second half of this fantastic game left the Clontarf support at the point of prayer, and potential human sacrifice, for […]
