THE new Energia Community Series kicked off on Saturday for Limerick's senior rugby clubs.

In Munster Conference 1, Shannon suffered a surprise 30-36 home defeat to Cashel at Coonagh.

The Tipperary side outscored their hosts by six tries to four to score a deserved victory.

Afterwards, Leader Sport spoke to a disappointed Shannon RFC head coach Tadhg Bennett.

Shannon return to action in the new competition on Saturday next when making the trip to Cork to face UCC at the Mardyke.
