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

Results Round Up

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

Storm Brian made his presence felt last Friday evening as we faced Young Munster in the quarter final of the Munster Senior Cup.  High winds and rain affected the game but not the large turnout for the most traditional competition in Munster rugby.  The cup brings out the best in all clubs and in a tough battle we emerged 19-16 winners on the night.  Cork Con await us in the semis.

Our U20s had another good win on Saturday against local rivals UL Bohs.  Trailing 8-5 at half time the lads rolled up the sleeves and finished as 11-31 winners scoring 5 tries and ensuring a bonus point win.

Results Round Up

Monday, October 16th, 2017

Our 3rds, playing in the Gleeson League, got the weekend off to a winning start with a hard fought win against their Shannon RFC opponents out in Coonagh.  We were trailing by 10 points with only twenty minutes on the clock.  The lads showed great resilience to come back and secure a 22-20 win.  The only blight on the result was a shoulder injury to Adrian O’Donoghue as he scored the winning try.  Wishing Adrian a speedy recovery and hoping the injury isn’t serious.

Results Roundup

Monday, October 9th, 2017

On Friday evening our 3rds got their Gleeson League campaign off to a winning start with a comfortable 29-0 win over Newport.  Tries by Mike McElligot, Dave Leonard and a brace from Declan Early.  Kevin McEvoy added 3 conversions and a penalty.  Next week will be a sterner test when they meet Shannon in Coonagh.

The 1sts travelled to Dublin to meet UBL pace setters Terenure at their Lakelands home.  A tough uncompromising game unfortunately saw us come off second best.  However the score line of 27-20 ensured that we picked an important losing bonus point.  Scorers were Hugh O’Brien-Cunningham and JP Phelan with a try each and Bill Johnston added 2 conversions and 2 penalties.  The league now enters a two week break before we resume at home on Saturday October 28 against UCD.

Saturday also saw our U20 side in action as they began their defence of the Donal Walsh Trophy away to Bruff.   Leading 26-3 at half time they ended with a good 34-17 win.  Try scores were Anson Thai x 2, Diarmuid Barron, Brian Fitzgerald, Shane Mullins & Harry Byrne added points from the boot.

A weekend like the ubiquitous curates egg.

Well done to all involved, the good ship GFC continues on course. GiG
