Last week saw our senior team take on Shannon RFC in the Cyril Fitzgerald plate. The Final score was Shannon 28 Old Crescent 11. HT was 21 – 8. Our Scores came from Sean Cunningham with a try & a penalty by Cathal Monaghan. Second half we pushed hard for scores and were unlucky not to score two tries. Another penalty by Cathal Monaghan left the score at 21-11. Shannon got a very late try as we were pushing to score but we never gave up and played to the end.

Team: Sean McGee, Alan McMahon, Sean Gleeson, Kevin Doyle, Tevita Toia, Sean Monaghan, Luke Malone, John O’Dwyer, Brian Clancy, Cathal Monaghan, Stephen O’Carroll, Paddy O Sullivan, Marty Ryan, Sean Cunningham, Kevin Meade. Subs: Cathal O’Reilly, Shane O’Connell, Sean McCarthy, Dara Arthur, Paudie Monaghan, Sean O’Brien, Peter Liston
