THERE were a couple of good weekend wins by local teams in Division 1A of the AIL.

A last minute penalty from ice-cool Shane O’Leary earned Young Munster a 16-13 away win at Ballynahinch. Aidan Shortall scored the visitors’ try and O’Leary converted, and kicked three penalties.

Shannon moved out of the relegation zone thanks to a late penalty try which gave them a 14-13 win against bottom side Dublin University at Thomond Park. The visitors led 10-0 at half time. Jack O’Donnell got Shannon’s opening try and Mike Cooke converted.

In 1B, Garryowen defeated Buccaneers 14-0 to move up to sixth a point behind Highfield. Kelvin Langan and Kyle Read scored first half tries for The Light Blues and Jack Delaney converted both.

In 2B, a couple of  tries from influential Darragh O’Gorman and one by Joe Johnson helped UL Bohemian to a 17-10 away win at Navan. Harry Byrne kicked one conversion.
