published:Mar  24

A greatly depleted Buccaneers could not match the intensity and cohesion of Ballynahinch whose 43-24 victory at Dubarry Park moves them level on top of the All-Ireland League Division 1B leaderboard. Buccs had nine enforced changes from last week’s win at Malone while Hinch could call on a key spine of Ulster players for this ‘Glasson Country House Hotel & Golf Club’ sponsored fixture.

MALONE 6 BUCCANEERS 11

published:Mar  04

BUCCANEERS inflicted only the second home defeat of the season on Malone when the midlanders won their All-Ireland League Division 1B encounter 11-6 in difficult conditions at Gibson Park, Belfast, on Saturday. The Pirates enjoyed by far the greater territory and possession throughout and the Cregagh Red Sox were fortunate to pinch a losing bonus point that keeps them in second place. Meanwhile, on the back of a fourth win in their last five outings, Buccs were finally rewarded in making some overdue ground up the league table to seventh.

CONGRATS JACK CARTY

published:Feb  25

Congratulations to Jack Carty on winning his first Ireland Senior cap in the victory over Italy in Rome. An unexpectedly tight contest meant that Jack did not enter the fray until the 77th minute but he managed 6 minutes game time and got quite a number of touches in that period. Hopefully, it will be first of many caps for the Barrymore native who has worked diligently in improving all facets of his game from year to year. The hard work and consistent performances have finally reaped due reward for the Connacht fly-half. All at Buccaneers congratulate Jack and wish him well in the Ireland ranks.

BUCCS AWAY TO MALONE IN BELFAST

published:Feb  25

BUCCANEERS are away to second placed Malone in next Saturday’s All-Ireland League Division 1B fixture at Gibson Park, Belfast. Kick off is 2.30 p.m. ‘The Cregagh Red Sox’ will be smarting having been knocked off top spot following last Saturday’s narrow defeat at Naas so Buccs must prepare for a reaction. But the midlanders will have a point to prove too, having left the Belfast side off the hook at Dubarry Park earlier in the season. Then despite a superb 56 phase final move the Pirates did not reap due reward and lost by a solitary point.

BUCCANEERS 24 ST MARY’S COLLEGE 17

published:Feb  25

BUCCANEERS bounced back from last week’s last gasp loss in Armagh to record a bonus point 24-17 All-Ireland League Division 1B victory over St. Mary’s College at Dubarry Park on Saturday. Buccs warranted this vital win but made heavier work of it than necessary in front of Connacht Head Coach Andy Friend. However, following three wins in their last four matches, they now lie just a solitary point adrift of the Dubliners on the ever tightening league table.

BUCCS MUST PASS ST. MARY’S COLLEGE TEST ON SATURDAY

published:Feb  21

BUCCANEERS take on St. Mary’s College in an All-Ireland League Division 1B game that the midlanders simply must win at Dubarry Park on Saturday. Kick off for this crunch encounter is 2.30 p.m. Buccs will be stung from letting five points slip from their grasp in Armagh last Saturday and they have to go for broke in this encounter against visitors who also just pipped the Pirates when the teams met in Dublin last November. The midlanders have let a number of clubs off the hook this season but cannot afford anymore slip ups as the league approaches the final run in. Consequently, a positive response by Buccs is anticipated in this tie sponsored by the Hodson Bay Hotel Group. The Pirates will be hopeful that props Conan O’Donnell and Conor Kenny will be available for consideration for this game while Rory Moloney and Darragh Corbett could also be fit. Simon Meagher is the team’s main injury worry.
