Golden Sunday for our local junior teams

IT was a golden Sunday for Limerick junior rugby teams with all three in the Munster Junior League division one recording comfortable wins and our two representatives in division two also coasting home with some ease.
St Mary’s gave their loyal following some hope of a post-Christmas revival with a home win over St Senan’s, 20-10. The Saints had tries by Jamie O’Sullivan and John Barry while Sean Lyons added two conversions and two penalties.
Newcastle West stay top of this division with a bonus point victory over Tralee. They scored three tries in each half, James Kelly 2, Stephen Kelly, Sean Herlihy, Conor Whelan and Sean Neville all dotting down over the whitewash while Herlihy’s accurate boot accounted for the rest of the points.
Galbally had a great away win over Kinsale, winning 17-11. The Bally boys had scores from Philip Moore two tries and Sean Burke kicked the rest of the points.
Abbeyfeale travelled to Crosshaven and recorded a creditable 34-15 victory. They scored four tries, Kieran McCarthy, Liam O’Connor, Tom Hassett and David Collins all getting five-pointes with Hassett kicking four conversions and two penalties in this bonus point performance.
Presentation were 23-0 ahead well into the second half when they entertained Youghal in Rathuard. They eased up in the final quarter with the County Cork visitors scoring two converted tries but overall Pres were full value for their 23-14 victory. Alan Daly and Eoin Lynch scored a try each while Craig Airey kicked three penalties and two conversions.
Last Saturday Young Munster had a 15-10 victory over Richmond thirds in the Gleeson League. Shane Gallagher scored a try for Richmond with Brian O’Neill kicking a conversion and Dara Clancy a drop goal. Scorers for Young Munster were Conor O’Brien a try, conversion and penalty and Darren Baxter a try.
Also in the Gleeson League, played on the all-weather pitch in Dooradoyle last Saturday, Garryowen 3rds had to work hard for their 11-3 victory over Presentation. The Rathuard boys were well in it right up to the final whistle and can feel proud of this performance.
Eoin Leonard scored the only try of the game for Garryowen and Dave Madded kicked two penalties while on the mark for Presentation was Pat Ryan who kicked a penalty.
