Stormy conditions had prevailed in the Cork area since the morning and meant that the fixture was in some doubt, but the other Division One game in Cork - Dolphin's clash with Blackrock College at Musgrave Park - was able to go ahead with the rain stopping shortly before kick-off.
Elsewhere, there were two Division One fixtures abandoned at Templeville Road and Dubarry Park.
The St. Mary's College v Garryowen tie was abandoned at half-time by referee Simon McDowell due to increasingly bad weather conditions. The score at half-time was 0-0, with hosts Mary's having played into the gale.
The Connacht derby between Buccaneers and Galwegians lasted just 15 minutes. Buccs were 6-0 ahead at that stage but with a crossbar becoming loose from the posts at one end and weather conditions worsening, referee Richard Kerr called a hault to proceedings.
All seven Saturday games down for decision in Division Three went ahead, but a trio of Division Two ties - Ballynahinch v Highfield, Belfast Harlequins v Clonakilty and Old Crescent v Bective Rangers - were called off due to unplayable pitches.
Details of the refixtures dates will be issued in the coming days.
