Daly caps first Irish appearance with a try

Thomond Park

Kilcock’s Cormac Daly marked his first appearance in an Irish jersey with a 2nd half try as his u20 side went down 15-10 to a Munster development team at Thomond Park today, Saturday May 13th.

Daly and his team mates, who continue their build up to the World Rugby U20 Championships in Georgia next month, were much better in the second half and were back to within two points heading into the final quarter after the Kilcock man touched down following a strong maul.

But it was the province who went on to hold out for a 15-10 victory.

Ireland U20 (Munster representatives in bold): Colm Hogan; Mark Keane, Gavin Mullin, Ciaran Frawley, Calvin Nash; Conor Fitzgerald, Jonny Stewart; Joey Conway, Tadhg McIlroy, Charlie Connolly; Jack O’Regan, Fineen Wycherley; Marcus Rea, Paul Boyle, Gavin Coombes.

Replacements from: Ronan Kelleher, Greg McGrath, Peter Coper, Cormac Daly, Sean Masterson, Ryan Fehily, Conor Dean, Sean O’Brien, Liam Coombes, Rory Mulvihill.

Moynalvey’s O’Sullivan Lands Four Conversions In Irish Victory

Hugh O’Sullivan in action for Belvedere College.

Moynalvely man Hugh O’Sullivan was successful with four of his conversions in Ireland U-19s 50-31 win over Japan in Donnybrook at the weekend

The Belvedere college scrumhalf, who recently lead his school to Leinster Senior Cup glory, was busy with the boot as his team mates crossed over for eight tries. 

O’Sullivan will be hoping to continue his progress through the International ranks and to one day follow in the footsteps of fellow Moynalvey man Devin Toner and star for the Irish senior team.

And as the Irish Daily Star reported last week; “There must be something in the water in Moynalvey”.

His older brother Cillian is currently a regular on Andy McEntee’s starting 15 for the Meath senior footballers, while fellow sibling Mark has represented his county in both football and hurling.
