for soon 'tis known from whence we came
where e'er we go they dread the name
of Garryowen in glory”

Results Round Up

Sunday, October 1st, 2017

A good return on the rugby front this weekend with wins for our 1sts & 2nds.

GFC 51-17 Clontarf

The 1sts had a great win for the second week in a row and also secured back to back try bonus points.  We ran in 6 tries all converted by Neil Cronin who played a real captains role with a personal haul of 26 points, not a bad days work.  Some of the running, passing and support play was first class as indeed was the defence.  Our forwards laid the foundations with a very solid display all round which secured quality possession for our backline.  The words of a certain song spring to mind.

A good performance which should boost our confidence for next weeks away game to leaders Terenure.

Our 2nds got their season off to a winning start on Sunday with a hard fought win over a tough Bruff XV in the Munster Senior 2nds League.  Again our pack can take much credit with a gritty performance against a very big Bruff unit.  Jamie Gavin had a good outing at outhalf while a certain Conan Doyle starred at fullback.  A valuable win which should stand to a youthful side.
