Reaction and match clips of Garryowen’s Sporting Limerick Charity Cup Final Loss

Garryowen suffered a surprise defeat last night as Nenagh Ormond secured a historic win at the Markets Field by defeating the Dooradoyle side by a point on a 25-24 score line in the Sporting Limerick Charity Cup Final.

Mark Rowley got the light blues off to a flying start as he crashed over the line but Nenagh were quick to show that they would be no walkover, as they hit back within ten minutes.

Garryowen went on to score a second try through Andrew O’Byrne, with Dave McCarthy adding the extras to go seven points up.

However, it was Nenagh Ormond who went into the interval 15-12 ahead following a Clayton Stewart penalty and a fine team try that was finished off by Gearoid O’Gormon.

It was the North Tipperary side that hit the ground running in the second half, extending their lead to ten points, however the light blues responded well, scoring two tries to take the lead with five minutes remaining.

The drama didn’t end there as Clayton Stewart hit three from the boot to give Nenagh the lead with a few minutes on the clock.

While Garryowen scrum half Neil Cronin had the chance to win the game at the death but his penalty kick sailed just wide as the game ended 25-24 to Nenagh Ormond.

Light Blues Head Coach Conan Doyle was disappointed but says the best team won.
