Clontarf overcame a serious challenge from a muscular Con side on Saturday in Temple Hill and managed to hold the hosts try less for the full 80 while scoring two crackers of their own. While two tries to nil tells part of the story it was the resilience in the scrum particularly in the last […]
Join us in the club on February 27th for our Family Day. Leo the Lion will be there to entertain the young, and not so young.
Oh dear, oh dear, what an evening of comedy and tragedy in Castle Avenue on Friday as a highly motivated, frothing, but somewhat limited Terenure side hurled themselves, as expected, on the Clontarf 15.

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.

Garryowen dominated the early exchanges with their swift offloading game and were […]
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 […]
