Massive congratulations to Clontarf Senior Rugby team, who were crowned the Ulster Bank League champions following 3 point defeat over Cork Constitution at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday, May 8th.
Clontarf supporters turned out in their droves to support the Bulls. And after a dismal start to the morning, the sun came out just in time for the 2.30 pm kick-off.
Despite an 18 point lead at half-time, Clontarf had to battle it out against a determined Cork Con in the second-half, but ultimately the Bulls took home the silverware with the final score; 28-25.
Well done to the entire team, in particular, Coach Andy Wood, Captain Ben Reilly and of course, Joey Carbery who was named Man-of-the-Match!
This Saturday, May 8th, will see Clontarf take on Cork Constitution in the Ulster Bank League Division 1A Final.
The Bulls secured their place in the final, following a 24-10 defeat over UCD at Castle Avenue, on Saturday, April 23rd.
The team is now in the final days of preparation ahead of their meet with the rebel country team, at the Aviva Stadium this Saturday.
Why not go along to the Aviva this Saturday, May 8th to support the lads?! Tickets are available from Ticketmaster (click here) for just €10 for adults, while children go free! (Note; Clontarf supporters should purchase tickets for the WEST STAND from the 'Price & Section' drop down menu)

Ireland have secured themselves a quarter final spot in the 2015 Rugby World Cup!
Joe Schmidt's team was pushed to their limits throughout the entire 80 minutes, yet despite Captain Paul O' Connell and Johnny Sexton both suffering injuries, the lads in green managed to beat the French 24-9!!
Clontarf's own Cian Healy, prop on the international team, has said the fact that O' Connell is injured means the team will only fight for World Cup Glory with even more determination in his honour.
A huge congratulations from Clontarf to Healy and the boys! Now let's beat Argentina…
