Connacht Junior 2 League

Connemara 6 Creggs 5

Creggs made the long journey to Clifden for Sunday’s Junior 2 League fixture and led into the closing stages only to have victory snatched away by a last minute penalty. This was another very encouraging display by Creggs,following the recent victory over Tuam. Connemara opened the scoring with a well struck penalty after 12 minutes but Creggs hit back with a fine try by fullback Aidan Geraghty to lead by 5 -3 at halftime. Creggs should have been further ahead but missed three penalties and also a couple of try scoring opportunities went astray. Mark Hester was a dominant influence in the backrow and he was sorely missed when injury forced his departure shortly after halftime. However,Creggs continued to carry the fight to Connemara and were looking likely winners until a late surge by the home team yielded the decisive penalty as the game edged deep into added time. Creggs have a home game against Galwegians next weekend and this presents an ideal opportunity to gain further momentum before the start of the Ardnacregg Cup.

This distance will be completed as a relay, by teams of up to 21 members aged 10 and upwards. This means a Minimum of 2km per runner/walker. This year funds raised are going toward initiatives run by Tackle Your Feelings, a mental health and well-being programme ran by the Rugby Player Ireland foundation.
If interested, please let us know and once we have numbers competing, we will create a text group where all information will be put up for the next steps to follow.
