New Glynn Cup Format

In 2009 the Glynn Cup was relaunched in a “Ryder Cup” style with every squad competing on St Patricks Day, and venues alternating between Galwegians and Corinthians grounds.

Each game carries 1 point, with 0.5 points for a draw. Non-competitive minis score 0.5 points each. If points are tied in Glynn Cup, winner is club scoring to most tries on Firsts game. If points are tied in Langan Trophy, trophy is retained by holder.

Original Glynn Cup Format

The Glynn Cup originated as a tribute to the contribution to rugby in Galway, Connacht and Ireland by Galwegians Johnny Glynn (see History articles). It was held on St Patricks Day from 1959-1996 as a match between the club 1st XVs.

The Cup was won 16 times by Galwegians and 21 times by Corinthians in this format.
