A selection of players from the Daughters of Charity in Munster recently took part in a challenge match at Garryowen Rugby Club.
It was a lot clearer in the other quarter-final tie as PBC defeated St. Clement’s 31-3 at Wilton. Jack Broderick opened the scoring with a penalty for Clements but two tries by Paul Kiernan and a conversion by Robin Reidy made it 12-3 to Pres’ at half time. Kiernan ran in two more tries after the break and Darragh Dennehy one with Reidy converting two of them.
Castletroy booked their place in the semi final of the McCarthy Cup after a 27-7 victory over Bandon Grammar at the U.L. complex. Shane Mullins, Luca Ridder and Darragh O’Neill scored tries for Castletroy and Bandon replied with a try by Travis Cooney which Sean Hudson converted.
Castletroy will be away to PBC in next week’s semi final and CBC will host the winners of next Friday’s tie between St. Munchin’s and Crescent Comp.
