AIL Final – Match Report
13th May, 2016

At the final whistle in the Aviva on Sunday the abiding memory for me is the sound of monkeys coming off backs among the Clontarf faithful. The magnificent fight back from Cork Con in the second half of this fantastic game left the Clontarf support at the point of prayer, and potential human sacrifice, for…

Clontarf 24 – 10 UCD
26th Apr, 2016

Any neutral perusing the score line and the try count could be excused for presuming this was a routine day at the office for Clontarf. Unlike the phony war of a week ago in the League, this was as full blooded an encounter as you could get for a semi-final. Moments of utter brilliance were…

Clontarf 25 – UCD 12
18th Apr, 2016

Probably the only way to describe this awkward fixture is that it was like going on an ice-skating date with your sister ….. Very much a formality, with nothing untoward likely to happen except, of course, a serious injury. So with all that in mind and the real fixture coming up next Saturday, both sides…

Old Belvedere 21 – Clontarf 27
5th Apr, 2016

Clontarf secured 1st place and a home AIL Semi-final with a hard earned victory over close rivals Old Belvedere in Anglesea Rd on Friday night. Clontarf started brightly but were undone on a number of occasions by a determined home defence which forced errors and turnovers. Despite dominating possession Clontarf found themselves behind by 10…

Cork Con 12 Clontarf 18
2nd Mar, 2016

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…

Clontarf 18 Terenure 14
8th Feb, 2016

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. This was not a surprise, however, any expectation that the home side would be armoured for the assault was disabused as…

Galwegians 5 – Clontarf 17
1st Feb, 2016

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. Required, was a return to the core values of commitment and application and as it turned out, the weather on the day left little room for anything…

Clontarf 18 – Lansdowne 19
26th Jan, 2016

Clontarf supporters will be excused for chewing the insides of their cheeks bloody in frustration as their side lost a game due to a recklessly slow start on the 4G in Castle Avenue. In a first half strewn with home attacking errors, Lansdowne tacked on a solid 13 nil advantage which was pulled back to…
