Match Report

Clontarf 27 – 19 Terenure
14th Nov, 2017

Clontarf have got into a habit of bursting bubbles at Castle Avenue. We all remember a shiny UCD team strutting in off the back of six victories out of six played only to be reduced to rubble by the cranky home squad. Last Friday Terenure arrived to the Northside righteously proud of their four out…

Clontarf 26 – 6 Buccaneers
13th Oct, 2017

And so the first four games of the season are over and we enter the first season break and the first opportunity to catch our breath and review progress. We are currently sitting in sixth position on 10 points with a 50% record. There are 5 clubs placed from third to seventh who have played…

Garryowen 51 – 17 Clontarf
2nd Oct, 2017

It’s been along time since Clontarf have suffered this kind of trauma. I remember back in the day, suffering at the hands (and feet) of a rampant Shannon side and once during Alex Wylies time having an awful experience against Belfast Harlequins in their rain soaked Ormeau Rd ground. It is said that if you…

Clontarf 33 St. Mary’s 16
27th Sep, 2017

So… game 2 of a definite 18 and a little bit of tension after the efforts last week in Cork went unrewarded. What probably went unnoticed in Cork was that along with a visit to ‘Con and that daunting baptism of fire, it didn’t help that most of the younger guys were playing out of…

Senior XV 18 – 30 Cork Constitution
22nd Sep, 2017

Well if you needed a fixture to focus the mind at the opening of the UBL an away trip to Temple Hill with a rematch of last years final promised enough crash, bang, wallop to entertain even the most rabid MMA fanatic. Both sides have the core of their sides intact although, with a few…

Clontarf 37 Young Munster 29
3rd May, 2017

Clontarf thundered into the UBL final on Saturday with a performance to warm the hearts of their supporters. Playing on the 3G surface Clontarf and Young Munster held nothing back in a game that delivered 10 tries in all. It was a superb mano a mano affair with each side digging deep into their lockers…

CLONTARF 37 UCD 28
19th Apr, 2017

After a topsy turvy regular season, Clontarf earned a home semi-final with a bonus point win over UCD on the all-weather pitch last Saturday. Somehow we need to try to avoid UCD in these games because despite all plans and bucket loads of local talent the young visitors always manage to give us the heeby…

St. Mary 12 Clontarf 31
13th Apr, 2017

On a weekend that started with a Clontarf blowout in Templeville Road and ended with the rugby gods smiling benignly on the north side, Clontarf moved back up the league into joint first with a clear route to a home semi-final. Who would have thought it? After a somewhat off colour display against a surging…

Clontarf 11 Young Munster 13
30th Mar, 2017

Clontarf burped and stumbled back to 4th place in the UBL with a performance lacking in pace and accuracy which threatened to come alive for the home team on a number of occasions only to die on a dropped ball or an inaccurate pass with the line beckoning. For long periods of the game it…

Garryowen 10 Clontarf 39
15th Mar, 2017

Clontarf overcame a spirited but young Garryowen side in sunny Limerick to move into 2nd place in the UBL League with three games to play. On a day more suited to beach ball it took Clontarf until almost half time to break down a home defence that dealt with the visitors kicking game with some…
