Charity Cup wins for UL Bohemians and Nenagh RFC

UL Bohemians and Nenagh Ormond got their competitive seasons off to winning starts last evening as both won their opening Charity Cup ties against Thomond and Shannon respectively.

Alan Wallace converted his own try to put Thomond 15-6 head but a late surge from Bohs saw them book a their semi final place. An Evan Cusack penalty and a Darragh O’Neill try made up the rest of Thomond’s total.

In last night’s other 1/4 final, Nenagh Ormond edged past Shannon by 14-7. Shannon threw everything at the Tipperary outfit late in the game but Nenagh held out courtesy of tries from Gerard O’Gorman and Johnny Hayes.
