Clontarf picked up a big win in Dooradoyle while St. Mary’s College got their first win of the season to lift them of the bottom. Young Munster top Division Two while Bruff maintained the meanest defence in the three divisions.
‘Tarf put a major dent in the title holder’s ambition of retaining the champions status when they beat Garryowen in Dooradoyle. St. Mary’s must have been inspired by their recent celebration of the 57/58 side as they picked up their first win of the season to jump off the bottom with a victory over Dungannon.
Shannon continued their unbeaten run with a comprehensive win over Blackrock, while Old Belvedere picked up another losing bonus point away to UCD. Dolphin’s strong form continued with a big win over Lansdowne.
