published:Jan  15

CITY OF ARMAGH avenged their All-Ireland League defeat last month by Buccaneers when they proved too strong for the Pirates in their Bateman Cup All-Ireland semi-final played in front of a big crowd at the Palace Grounds, Armagh, on Saturday.

published:Dec  10

OLD BELVEDERE and Buccaneers swopped places in the Division 1B table for the second successive week when the Dubliners eked out an 11-10 All-Ireland League victory at wet and windy Anglesea Road on Saturday. In a finely balanced contest between two evenly matched outfits, the homesters were mightily relieved when Luke Carty’s drop goal attempt, with the final kick of the match from over 30 metres, was fractionally off-target.

ST. MARY’S COLLEGE 34 BUCCANEERS 32

published:Nov  28

ST MARY’S COLLEGE earned a vital victory when defeating Buccaneers 34-32 in their All-Ireland League Division 1B clash at Templeville Road on Saturday. This meeting of the two clubs relegated from the top flight last season had a “must win” feeling about it even at this early stage of the current campaign. St. Mary’s were the more cohesive unit and merited their narrow bonus point win. On a firm sod, the endeavours and high scoring by both sides masks a scrappy enough affair.
