CORK SIDE CLYDA Rovers claimed the AIB Munster IFC title this afternoon with a win over Miltown Malbay outfit St Jospeph’s at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick.

The victory marks a first provincial title for the north Cork club.

Recently-retired Rebel star Paudie Kissane lined out against players he will mentor next season, having been installed as a coach in the Banner backroom set-up.

The Clare side started well but Clyda Rovers responded with half a dozen unanswered points to earn a six points to four lead at half-time. They managed to extend that lead in the second period and seal a famous win.

The defeat marks the end of the road for St Joseph’s who bounced back after being relegated from the senior ranks in Clare last year.
