Match Report

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…

Old Belvedere 13 – Clontarf 36
2nd Mar, 2017

Clontarf overcame a spirited effort from an injury decimated Old Belvedere squad on Saturday and have solidified their 4th place spot in the senior division, 11 points ahead of Garryowen.  With games to come against Lansdowne and Young Munster in Castle avenue there is still plenty of potential movement in the makeup of the top…

Clontarf 22 Cork Con 13
18th Feb, 2017

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…

Clontarf 6 Terenure 13
7th Feb, 2017

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
1st Feb, 2017

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…

Lansdowne 33 Clontarf 31
1st Nov, 2016

So . . . Five games played and a record of two wins and three defeats. An indication of how tight the games have been is reflected in the scoring statistics. For the five games the total margin of victory/defeat has been 11 points. The only game with a margin of greater than two points…

Clontarf 16 Garryowen 14
11th Oct, 2016

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…

Young Munster 20 Clontarf 18
11th Oct, 2016

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
27th Sep, 2016

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…

J1 v UCD
21st Sep, 2016

UCD 15                  Clontarf 32   Clontarf got their J1 league Division 1 campaign off to the best possible start with a convincing bonus point win at UCD last Sunday. The win was built on a dominant scrum for which great credit must be given to the pack who controlled the scrum and not forgetting the…
