Match Report

Greystones 32 Clontarf 56
11th Sep, 2012

After my few compulsory pints in the club on Saturday night I went home to the couch, and the steak sandwich, and the bottle of red, and the channel surfing, and found myself, incredibly, settling down with a great British institution, “The last night of the Proms”. The last night of the Promenade Concerts is…

Oldies 6 Newbies 4
11th Sep, 2012

A quick three tries for the Newbies proved not to be enough . . . There is a joke about a young bull and an old bull at the top of a field chewing grass. The young bull says to the older one ‘Let’s run down to the bottom of the field and shag one…

Clontarf 17 Trinity 10
29th Aug, 2012

Ah Yes, the start to a new season once again draws the sodden faithful-like pilgrims to Castle Avenue for the annual opening session of “Who’s that” and “Where did he come from” liberally sprinkled with “Is he still here” which is generally directed at the management. Is it me or do we always play Trinity…

Clontarf 12 St. Mary’s 18
18th Apr, 2012

There is a debate bubbling in the IRFU corridors of power around the subject of money in the Irish club game. The debate was kicked off by a small number of clubs who have found themselves on the wrong end of the debt cycle as the property market collapsed and as their local bank manager…

St. Mary’s win top of the table clash
16th Apr, 2012

Captain Hugh Hogan turned in a man-of-the-match performance to inspire St. Mary’s College to a narrow win over Clontarf at Castle Avenue, with the result putting them in pole position to become Ulster Bank League champions. Darren Hudson’s second half brace of tries and a terrific defensive display, particularly after they had Mark Sextonsin-binned late…

Clontarf 47 Garryowen 18
2nd Apr, 2012

Well . . . where do we start with this game? Probably the best place is to start at the end and discuss the implications of this bonus point win. In doing so I have decided to avoid the tempting debate on the mathematics of the upcoming St. Mary’s game. All the what ifs, and…

Clontarf Take Another Step Closer To League Title
2nd Apr, 2012

Clontarf continued their march towards the Ulster Bank League title with a bonus point victory over Garryowen at Castle Avenue on Saturday. The Division 1A table toppers laid the groundwork with three converted tries in the first half, the best of them being a 70-metre dash from centre Killian Lett,and surged clear of a determined…

Young Munster 17 Clontarf 24
27th Mar, 2012

Firstly, on behalf of the management and players, many thanks to the travelling support who played a starring role in keeping the spirits up on the pitch during the more challenging periods in an enthralling game. As expected, in the true spirit of Irish club rugby, the hospitality off the pitch was in dramatic contrast…

Clontarf 42 Blackrock 3
7th Mar, 2012

Castle Avenue’s second instalment of “Friday Night Lights” welcomed Leinster rivals Blackrock over the East Link and into the darkest Northside. Blackrock are struggling this season and are a shadow of their former selves. As their President mentioned in his after tea speech they are struggling with both emigration and a constant drain to the…

3rd A’s capture the league title
22nd Feb, 2012

With one game in hand the 3rd A’s captured their league title with a bonus point win at home to a spirited Monkstown team on Sunday last. The Average Joe’s took to the field knowing a five point win would close the door on second placed Barnhall. In a scrappy first half ‘Tarf finally made the break through with…
