Recent Results

RFC O’Duffy Cup Final

Gaeil Triúcha 0-11 Scotstown 1-11


Commiserations to our Reserves who were pipped at the post on Saturday last by Scotstown in the O’Duffy Cup Final.


Although we battled hard in the first half we found scores hard to come by and trailed by 9 at the half time whistle. The second half really epitomised the old cliché of a game of two halves as we chipped away at the Scotstown lead however the gap was just a little too great to close and we fell just short.

Huge congratulations to this squad of Players and their Management for getting into the final and no doubt there will be better days ahead.
