Loss of key players a concern for Garryowen

By the Editor

PLAYING in division 1B of the AIL for the first time, Garry0wen FC are eager to make a quick return to the top echelon of Irish club rugby. Their cause will not be helped by the loss of a few players.

Wing forward Anthony Kavanagh has taken up an appointment as player coach with Nenagh Ormond and will be a major loss to the light blues whom he served so well over the past few seasons.
Also leaving Dooradoyle is out-half/centre Alan Gaughan. From the Athlone area, Alan has joined Buccaneers.
There is some good news with David Sherry (backrow/second row), out for most of last season due to injury, looks set to return to Garryowen for the coming season but there are doubts about the future of both wing Harry McNulty and  number eight Mark Rowley. McNulty, who has not been offered an Academy contract with Munster, could also move on while it is understood that Rowley may be taking up a job in the capital, which would result in him joining one of the Dublin-based clubs.

It is also understood that Garryowen are on the brink of signing a second-row who has played with Dungannon and who is expected to come to the University of Limerick to continue his studies.
