A great weekend for Munster clubs challenging for honours in the AIL, as Bruff lifted the Gleeson League for the first time and Cork Transport who nearly went out of rugby a few weeks ago, made a winning start in the McCarthy Cup.

Cork Constitution and Shannon continue to dominate in the First Division of the AIL, after away victories. The Temple Hill side left it very late to beat Co. Carlow 16-14 and Shannon had a deserving victory over Blackrock College 32-25. At the other end of the table Garryowen and Dolphin eased their relegation worries with impressive victories. Garryowen defeated Dungannon 21-8 and Dolphin beat Lansdowne 27-15.

In the Second Division U.L. Bohemian and U.C.C. maintained their challenge. The Limerick side defeated Ballynahinch 18-8 at Thomond Park and U.C.C. defeated Terenure College at Lakelands 25-20. Old Crescent’s hopes of promotion look over after they lost 18-12 at home to Bective Rangers. Young Munster went down to Malone 21-13 at Clifford Park and Waterpark slipped back into the relegation battle after they lost to D.L.S.P. 19-8.

Both Midleton and Sunday’s Well remain in the bottom two places. Midleton lost at home to leader’s Old Belvedere 10-5 and Sunday’s Well were blitzed by Barnhall 48-7.

Highfield’s promotion hopes from Division Three received a major boost after they defeated Suttonians 39-10 to move into second spot. Clonakilty got back to winning ways with a 22-19 win at home to Naas.

Bruff won the Gleeson League for the first time with a 19-6 win over Nenagh Ormond at Thomond Park. The sides were level 6-6 at half time but a try from John Shine proved to be the turning point in the game.

Cork Transport who were going to pull out of rugby a few weeks ago, because of injuries and a shortage of players had a dramatic win in the McCarthy Cup when an injury time penalty gave them a 20-18 victory over Charleville. Holders Kanturk went down at home to Skibbereen 13-8 and Bandon defeated Cobh Pirates 25-0.

Ballincollig extended their lead at the top of the Junior Two League South table after their 37-0 win at home over Bantry Bay. Cobh Pirates moved into second place after they beat Muskerry 8-5.

Killorglin moved level with Old Christians in the Junior Three League after they beat Castleisland 10-9 and in Division Two Glenbeigh defeated Sunday’s Well 10-5.
