ALL-IRELAND LEAGUE: DIVISION 1A
CLONTARF 13-16 CORK CONSTITUTION
Cork Constitution are the new leaders of All-Ireland League Division 1A after ending Clontarf's six-match winning streak with a stirring 16-13 comeback victory at Castle Avenue.
Armed with a 13-3 advantage inside the final quarter, 'Tarf looked set to preserve their 100% record this season, but the boot of Aidan Moynihan kept Cork Con in contention and replacement Joe McSwiney's converted try drew them level before Moynihan landed an injury-time penalty to dramatically take the spoils.
SHANNON 15-32 LANSDOWNE
Workhorse flanker Aaron Conneely helped himself to a brace of tries today as Lansdowne made it five All-Ireland League wins on the trot with a 32-15 bonus point success against Shannon on Thomond Park's back pitch.
The visitors scored four tries in the 17-point victory with Willie Fay and a penalty try securing the win.
Robbie Deegan and Nathan Randles touched down for Shannon.
TERENURE COLLEGE 16-17 GARRYOWEN
Teenage out-half Ben Healy was in match-winning form again for Garryowen as his haul of four penalties steered them past bottom side Terenure College on a 17-16 scoreline at Lakelands Park.
Healy's first start at this level saw him kick 22 points in last week's derby victory over Young Munster, and the Munster Academy recruit's right boot proved very valuable for the Light Blues in the capital.
They had to endure a nervy finish, though, as Healy's opposite number James Thornton was narrowly wide with a last-minute touchline conversion.
YOUNG MUNSTER 34-34 UCD
Both clubs had to be happy with three hard-earned league points after an epic 11-try contest between Young Munster and UCD ended at 34 points apiece in Greenfields.
It was missed place-kicks which ultimately led to a share of the spoils between Division 1A's eighth and sixth-placed teams.
UCD were last to score, getting back on level terms with two late tries but a missed conversion from a central position saw the win slip out of the students' grasp.
UCC 28-14 DUBLIN UNIVERSITY
UCC recorded their first win in the All-Ireland League's top flight at the seventh time of asking, getting the better of intervarsity rivals Dublin University who fell to a 28-14 defeat in front of a large Mardyke crowd.
Closing tries from James Taylor (71 minutes) and Matt Bowen (78) sealed the deal for UCC in what was their Colours match.
It was just reward for a determined 80-minute display from Brian Walsh's youngsters who were well marshalled by captain Daire Feeney, Cian Bohane and John Poland.
