WATCH: AIL 1A victories for Young Munster and Garryowen

It was a positive weekend for Limerick’s All-Ireland League teams with Young Munster and Garryowen both victorious.

Munsters climbed off the bottom of the table with a 7-0 win over Lansdowne at Aviva Stadium’s back pitch, while Garryowen beat Clontarf in Dooradoyle.

Elsewhere, there were defeats for Shannon, UL Bohs, Old Crescent and Bruff from their respective fixtures.

Luke Fitzgerald got the game’s only try in the second half and Evan Cusack slotted a superb touchline conversion to seal the victory.

Garryowen remain in the playoff places following a 13-10 home win over Clontarf. The Light Blues were 10-6 down at the break, but a penalty try saw them to a vital win.

In Division 1B, Shannon fell to a 16-14 defeat in Naas. Conor Glynn and Pa Ryan crossed for Shannon and it looked like an away victory was theirs, only for Naas to score a converted try deep into added time.

UL Bohemian remain in ninth place in Division 2A after earning a bonus point in their 20-15 loss to Buccaneers. Old Crescent stay 5th after a 32-10 defeat to Rainey Old Boys.

It was a similar story for Bruff as they fell to a 32-12 loss to City of Armagh in their Division 3C fixture.
