A Munster Under 17 combined selection of players from the Regional Development Squad and Munster 'B' Schools recently attended a 11 a-side blitz at Cork Institute of Technology grounds.
Bandon did rally with time running out but the nearest they came to a score was drop goal effort by out half Jack Murphy which fell short of the posts.
Shannon-St. Mary’s had the advantage of the strong wind in the opening half and Simon Gallagher looked like he was in for a try for the Limerick side but was held up on the line.
Burns was off target with a long range penalty attempt for Shannon-St. Mary’s but made amends on twenty seven minutes when he opened the scoring with a penalty from the Twenty Two.
Bandon struck back and were level on the stroke of half time when scrum half Richard Walsh kicked a penalty.
Walsh put Bandon ahead with a second penalty effort twelve minutes into the second half, a lead they held until Shannon’s late revival.
