Richmond shock Clonmel, St Mary’s retain lead in MJL2

By Aidan Corr
RICHMOND put down a marker for other teams in the Munster Junior League division one today when they had a thrilling victory over Clonmel. Played at the Tipperary venue, the city side deserved their success and it gives them some consolation for the home defeat at the hands of the same opposition in the Junior Challenge Cup the previous week.
St Mary’s also had a good victory, beating Thurles in an important division two fixture in Grove Island. The ‘Saints’ are second in the division but face another difficult hurdle next week-end when they travel to play Muskerry.
Abbeyfeale had to dig deep in MJL1 before carving out a narrow win at home over Youghal while Newcastle West were in scoring form, running away from visitors Skibbereen in the second period to win 34-3 after leading 12-3 at half time. Galbally put up a good show on their visit to Jim Slattery Park in Shannon but they have yet to win a game in this division after going down 12-6.
In the Gleeson League A, UL Bohemian had a great win over Ennis, winning 31-0 at the County Clare venue while Old Crescent were also in scoring mood, running up 36 unanswered points against St Senan’s in Rosbrien. In a thriller, Shannon got the better of Richmmond in Coonagh.
