With a great number of players either graduating to the senior side or no longer being within the age bracket, a new look Under 20s team opened their JP Fanagan Premier 1 league campaign with an excellent one point win against a very strong UCD team.

The early season fixture list wasn't kind and a week later a trip to college park ended in defeat against a very good Trinity side. The lads rebounded to pick up four bonus point wins on the trot (Clontarf, Blackrock, Belvedere & Barnhall) before suffering a narrow two point defeat away to league leaders Terenure. A loss in UCD left the lads in third place at the Christmas break.

A big bonus point win against Trinity kicked off 2015 and was followed up for four more consecutive bonus point wins (Clontarf, Blackrock, Belvedere & Barnhall). However, the great start to 2015 ended when an unbeaten Terenure side got the better of the lads and claimed the league leaving us tied on points in second place with Trinity.

The high league finish secured qualification for the Fraser McMullen All-Ireland and the lads traveled to Young Munster for a 1/4 final tie in mid March. After a 13-20 win in Limerick we took on Terenure in Lakelands in the semi final and came out 35-25 winners to set up a final against Trinity in Anglesea Road.

With a sizeable crowd in attendance for the final, we opened the scoring with only one minute on the clock through a well struck long range penalty from captain Ben Ridgeway. A sequence of attacking play followed through wing Cian O’Donughue, centre Fergal Cleary and fullback James Nolan, but Trinity's well organised defence was kept us at bay, and they replied with a well struck penalty to level to the scores.

On the next attack prop Ntinga Mpiko crashed over the line for a try from short range to bring the score to 8-3 to round off a spell of pressure in the 22. With relentless tackling lead by openside Jack O’Sullivan the score was 8-3 at the break.

The second half continued in the same fashion as the first, with very little between the sides. Ridgeway kicked a second penalty for Lansdowne while Trinity scored a try under the posts and followed that with another try from a turnover in their own 22. The score stood at 11-15. 

The decisive moment of the game came with around five minutes left on the clock. From a scrum on halfway Ridgeway showed lightening pace to break clear of the Trinity defenders before passing to wing Kevin O'Connor who finished brilliantly to score in the corner from 20 metres out. The lads survived massive pressure in the final few minutes, with two men in the sin bin, and held out to win our second u20s All Ireland title in three years winning 16-15.

Six days later we took on Terenure again, this time in the semi final of the McCorry cup in Belfield. Sadly this proved one game too far as the lads ran out of gas and let a first halflead slip and fell to defeat.
