Shannon to re-group after final match


By Siofra Scanlan

SHANNON senior team played Trinity last week in Merrion Road, Dublin. It was a close game with our lads displaying a much improved and strong performance. Unfortunately in the dying minutes of the game Trinity got over the Shannon try line to win by 19-17. This weekend sees the last senior AIL match of the 2013/2014 season being played away against Dungannon on Saturday. After that,    the club mentors will set their sights on next season as we look forward to a return to division 1A.

Congratulations To All
All at Shannon RFC wish to extend congratulations to everyone who was involved with the winning U16’s & U20’s teams last night. The U16’s won out over Kilrush on the back pitch in Thomond Park, while in Coonagh the U20’s beat Garryowen by 11-5 to win the open cup. A great day for the club. Many thanks to the coaches, parents and especially players who put in huge effort during the season. The results speak for themselves.
We would also like to congratulate Frank Bradshaw-Ryan on receiving his first Irish cap last Friday in the Shannon RFC Clubhouse.
