CRESCENT College Comprehensive retained their SEAT Munster Schools Senior Cup title for the first time in 24 years with an impressive 21-7 victory over local rivals Ardscoil Ris at Thomond Park on St Patrick’s Day.

Crescent laid the foundation for their 11th Senior Cup success in the opening half after which the Dooradoyle side led 14-0 before an estimated attendance of 6,000.

Ardscoil Ris, appearing in their second final, were hoping to add the Munster Schools Senior Cup success to the Dr Harty Cup victory the school enjoyed earlier this year.
