Kanturk are the toast of Munster this weekend after they overcame holders and favourites Richmond in the final of the Munster Junior Clubs Challenge Cup at Corbally in Limerick on Saturday.
A last minute try from Mark Healy converted by Darragh Meade sent fans of the Turks at the home of St Mary’s RFC into raptures as they recorded their second win of the season over the league leaders and champions elect.
Richmond had fought back from the concession of an early Phillip Trippier try and had built up a 20-1 lead heading into the final quarter.
Richmond led 17-13 at half time with tries from Mikey Kelliher and Jeff McNamara and the boot of Brian Mullins had added the rest.
Kanturk pounded the line in those closing stages but looked to have missed their chance until Meade stepped up.
