The four points of the compass were represented at two Tag rugby blitzes held in sports fields of Hedgestown and Rush National schools…

East Fingal’s Loughshinny NS competed against the Rush school, South Fingal, while the representatives from the North and West – Milverton NS and Hedgestown – met in a lustrous setting near Balrothery.

In all some 100 children from 5th and 6th class participated and thoroughly enjoyed their time off from academic studies!

Furthermore they were delighted to receive mementos of the day from Leinster Branch CRO Gerry McCleery who said: “More and more children cherish the Leinster colours. It really pleases me to see them get behind a home-grown team.”
