Garryowen bounced back to winning ways when they trounced UL Bohemian in what was a rare one-sided local derby under the lights at Dooradoyle.
There was a fair sized attendance present for this latest installment and while Garryowen supporters left very happy it was too one-sided for neutral observers.
The game was over as a contest by halftime by which stage Garryowen led 21-3 and the only question waiting to be answered was when they would score their fourth try.
It came after 66 minutes when Ronan O'Mahony
rounded off a superb passing movement to touch down beside the posts.
For good measure they added a fifth by Dave Sherry
just at the end.
went into action after two minutes when hooker Dave Rowley
was injured and he got two of their first half tries with the other being scored by Conan Doyle
who was injured in the process and Geoff Ryan
took over the kicking duties and landed one penalty and four conversions.
first try came after 22 minutes and he got in again with the last play of the half. Doyle
converted the first of the tries but when he went off in the process of getting his try after 26 minutes Ryan
took over the goal kicking role.
kicked a penalty for the losers when they were 14-nil in arrears.
