Despite a Donal Clare penalty, on the stoke of half time came a blow as Clondalkin made their way over in the left corner for an unconverted try.

They stretched their lead early in the second half when the ball was knocked from Errol Boyle’s grasp straight to a Clondalkin player and he raced away to stretch out the lead to 18-3.
