This week's club notes come from Carrick-on-Suir, Midleton and Shannon rugby clubs.
In spite of a fierce Munster defensive effort, referee John Coyle awarded the visitors a penalty in the 61st minute in front of the posts, giving Leinster a 10-0 advantage going into the break.
An impressive injury-time try from right wing Eoin O’Carroll from Tralee, converted by Garryowen’s Fionn McGibney, was not enough for the home side at the full-time whistle.
