Tiernan O'Halloran starts against Springboks

published:Jun  23

Buccaneers and Connacht player TIERNAN O'HALLORAN makes his first start for the Ireland Senior side when they throw down the gauntlet to South Africa in the third test that will decide the series on Saturday. Tiernan, whose father Aidan from Moate won All-Ireland Senior Football glory with Offaly and also was a recent President of the Connacht Branch IRFU, earned his first Senior cap with a brief substitute appearance in the closing stages of last week's match. He plays at fullback and he is wished the very best of luck for this massive match. Meanwhile fellow Buccaneer FINLAY BEALHAM is named among the replacements but ROBBIE HENSHAW is already back home due to injury sustained in that second test.

3 Buccaneers players in Ireland squad to play South Africa on Saturday

published:Jun  15

The Guinness PRO12 trophy, won in such magnificent style by Connacht, will visit Buccaneers on Monday next June 20th from 8 p.m. All are invited to come along to The Bounty to take photos with this trophy.

Three Buccaneers players ROBBIE HENSHAW, TIERNAN O'HALLORAN and FINLAY BEALHAM are in the Ireland squad for Saturday's second test against the Springboks. This is a marvellous honour for the club and lets hope that Ireland can repeat the heroics of their historic first ever win in South Africa. You can watch the game and catch the atmosphere at The Bounty where all Ireland's Euro 2016 matches are being screened too!  

Meanwhile, well done too to Ireland U-20s on winning all three pool games to qualify for the Junior World Cup semi-final. Unfortunately, CONOR KENNY got injured very early in the dramatic win over Six Nations champions Wales so had to miss out on the memorable victory over the Baby Blacks, for whom JORDIE BARRETT featured. He is a younger brother of BEAUDEN, son of KEVIN 'SMILEY' BARRETT who played for Buccs in the AIL when the brothers were little nippers. 

Finally, good luck too to SHANE LAYDEN and his Ireland Sevens teammates as they bid to qualify for Rio de Janeiro in the Olympics Sevens Repechage in Monaco next weekend. Go for it, guys!
