The pictures from Sunday's Provincial Towns Cup semi-final are gloriously muddy

Conditions were far from ideal but a weekend of rain made for some great photography.

IT MAY HAVE been the first weekend of April but days of incessant rain meant the Provincial Towns Cup semi-final between Clondalkin and Wicklow turned into a complete mud bath.

With a place in the final on the line, the stakes were high in Carlow and the awful conditions only added to the drama – and made for some great photos.

It was Wicklow who prevailed after what can only be described as an attritional encounter as they edged out a 16-13 victory to advance to the decider.

Photographer Sharon Flanagan braved the elements to capture all the action and although the result didn’t go her team’s way, at least she has the consolation of these great images.
