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…

Garryowen 10 – Clontarf 3
12th Jan, 2016

Well there’s nothing to raise the spirits after a rugby free Christmas than the prospect of a sodden gloomy trek down to Limerick for the commencement of the second half of the UBL. For the life of me I cannot understand why the IRFU flipped the fixtures rather than simply reverse them. The latter would…

Clontarf 39 Garryowen 25
7th Dec, 2015

Well who would have thought that a day like Saturday could have thrown up such a classic rugby game! Right from the start both teams decided to ignore the howling gale blowing across the pitch and set about moving the ball at pace. Garryowen dominated the early exchanges with their swift offloading game and were…

Lansdowne 23 – 23 Clontarf
2nd Dec, 2015

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…

Terenure 3 – 13 Clontarf
5th Nov, 2015

Clontarf moved to the top of Division 1A after victory over an enthusiastic but inexperienced Terenure in Lakelands on a beautiful autumnal Friday night. Well, to be fair, it was beautiful for the spectators under the trees on the lake side. Perhaps it was less beautiful for the players dealing with a wet ball. Clontarf…
