Michael Keating book-ended Clontarf's second win of the AIB League campaign with tries as they beat Terenure College in a lively Dublin derby at Lakelands.

Winger Keating, a member of Belvedere College's Leinster Senior Cup-winning side of last season, crossed the whitewash after 4 and 79 minutes.

Terenure took a 6-5 advantage into half-time thanks to two David McAllister penalties.

Despite leaking three penalties to Martin Dufficy, 'Nure kept ahead through Brian Blaney (try) and McAllister (drop goal) before Keating had the last laugh.

Scorers: Terenure College: Try: Brian Blaney; Con: Conor Gildea; Pens: David McAllister 2; Drop: David McAllister

Clontarf: Tries: Michael Keating 2; Pens: Martin Dufficy 3
