Click here for photos from Garryowen’s eight-try defeat of County Carlow in AIB League Division One on Saturday.

Pictured above: Garryowen hooker Pat Humphries goes over for one of his two first half tries at Dooradoyle. Garryowen’s 13th win in 14 Division One outings has them right on contention for a home semi-final berth – they take on UCD (at home) in their final round game on Saturday, April 29.

County Carlow hooker Wayne Kerr holds onto possession as the midlanders drive forward. Carlow coach David Hodge has admitted his satisfaction with the “battling qualities” and “good spirit shown” by his side in recent weeks, but it has not been enough to stave off relegation. They remain bottom after their 13th defeat in as many games.
