Galwegians 5 – Clontarf 17

Result: Senior XV 17 - 5 Galwegians

Clontarf travelled west into the teeth of a storm having done quite a bit of soul searching after two sub-par performances and two losses so far in January.

For the life of me I cannot understand why the IRFU flipped the fixtures rather than simply reverse them. The latter would […]

Well who would have thought that a day like Saturday could have thrown up such a classic rugby game! Right from the start both teams decided to ignore the howling gale blowing across the pitch and set about moving the ball at pace.

Lansdowne 23 – 23 Clontarf

Result: Senior XV 23 - 23 Lansdowne

The word of the day on Saturday was composure. Firstly, the weather was so ugly I had to compose myself to get out of bed, never mind leave the house to watch a rugby match. Thankfully, the diehards from both clubs were rewarded by a break in the weather long enough to get a game […]

Terenure 3 – 13 Clontarf

Result: Senior XV 13 - 3 Terenure

Clontarf moved to the top of Division 1A after victory over an enthusiastic but inexperienced Terenure in Lakelands on a beautiful autumnal Friday night. Well, to be fair, it was beautiful for the spectators under the trees on the lake side. Perhaps it was less beautiful for the players dealing with a wet ball. Clontarf […]
