Cork Con had to do it the hard as they were without nine first choice players due to provincial and international commitments and injury.
They have six players on duty with Munster in Newport and centre Tom Gleeson is also away with the Ireland squad at the Sevens World Cup in Dubai.
Adding to their problems, the Leesiders lost their team captain Brendan Cuttriss to a shoulder injury during this game and a strong start from Clontarf had them leading 13-7 at half-time.
'Tarf made the early running and despite calls for what seemed an obvious knock on, hooker Aaron Dundon played the whistle and got over for a try from close range.
