Byrne Cup kudos is all 'Mine

Coolmine's 2nd XV clinched the Byrne Cup, beating Guinness RFC last week in Ashbrook under lights to secure a well-deserved double.

They took their fourth league title in the space of five years several weeks ago with a game in hand.

They met Guinness away in the final last year, with the home side denying them the chance of a double, but, with home advantage this year, Coolmine turned the tables in a very tight game that went right to the final whistle. They are still on track to secure a historic treble when they take part in the O'Connell Cup quarter-final next weekend.
