Limerick's Galbally RFC advance in All-Ireland Junior Cup

LIMERICK side Galbally RFC has advanced to the quarter-finals of the Ulster Bank All-Ireland Junior Cup, but there was disappointment for Richmond who bowed out of the competition.

All-Ireland Junior Cup debutants Galbally scored a thrilled 16-13 victory away to Gorey on Saturday to reach the last eight, while Richmond succumbed 29-16 at home to Ballyclare.

Michael Donovan was Galbally's try scorer in their excellent three-point win over the Co Wexford side, while Jack O'Mullane kicked a conversion and three penalties.

It was the third of O’Mullane’s three penalty goals in the final minute  of the game that proved crucial in the Limerick side’s nail-biting win.
