Coolmine RFC congratulates three members of the Under-16 squad who have been selected to represent the Metro section of Leinster. Aaron Ryan (Flanker) – David Gethin (Second Row) – Vakh Abdaladze (Centre) – All three have played with Coolmine since their mini rugby days…

After a demanding fitness and conditioning programme throughout the summer the players made it through the final selection to line out in their first competitive game with Metro against the North East area on Monday evening in Malahide.

Metro streams players from across all the clubs in the region with the intention of developing their talents further and giving them the opportunity to progress their rugby through to Leinster Youths. In addition to training and playing with Coolmine they will also train with Metro and compete in the Shane Horgan Inter Area Cup.

Meanwhile, the Mini and youth sections registration took place last Saturday in the clubhouse.  This year we will field over 17 teams covering age groups from Under-7 up to Under-19 levels.  It was a busy day and it looks like we will exceed last year’s total of over 300 Junior members. Thanks to everyone who helped out on the day. 

You can still register if you haven’t already done so by turning up any Saturday or Sunday morning or check out the ‘Join Coolmine’ page on the website for more information.
