Young Munster beat Nenagh to reach another Charity Cup final

(Young Munster celebrate last season’s final win over Garryowen at the Markets Field)
Sporting Limerick Charity Cup semi-final:
Nenagh Ormond 6, Young Munster 22
THE black and ambers came away from Ormond Park tonight satisfied with a close victory over the home side that gives them their ticket to another final. The holders will meet the winners of Saturday’s other semi-final between Old Crescent and Bruff in the decider.
Nenagh put up a good show in tonight’s game and it was a penalty try late in the game that sealed the victory for Young Munster. There were only two points between the sides at the break, Nenagh kicking two penalties and Young Munster’s scores coming from a Darren Ryan try and an unconverted penalty by Evan Cusack to make it 6-8.
A Nicky Irwin try two minutes into the second half, converted by Cusack, pushed the Young Munster lead to 6-15 but it was tight enough from there to that final drive by the Greenfields side that reaped the late penalty try.
Making his competitive debut for Young Munster, Evan Cusack, the former Thomond star, had an impressive outing while also to the fore for the Limerick side were centre Harry Flemming (ex UL Bohemian), prop Eoin O’Neill (formerly Thomond) and lock Jake O’Kelly.
