Creggs RFC 28, Connemara RFC 27.

Creggs continued their great run in the Cawley Cup after edging out rivals Connemara by the narrowest of margins (28-27) in a thrilling encounter at the Green last Sunday.

Creggs First Team v Connemara RFC

Great team tries from man-of-match contenders, forward’s Brian Donoghue and Brian Diffley, as well a third from centre Mark Purcell lead the way. Shane Purcellโ€™s shooting boot accounted for the balance.

Creggs will now play Castlebar in the Bank of Ireland Cawley Cup Final. That game will be played in mid-December. Having won the last two Cawley Cups, Creggs are going for three-in-a-row in this cup competition.

The First team now have two weekends off, resuming the weekend after with a top of the table home League match v Westport RFC. It is hoped to have a few injured players back fit and in contention by that weekend.
