The students of St Nicholas of Myra National School in Kinsealy have recently been taking part in the IRFU ‘Play Rugby’ Programme…

All pupils, boys and girls, from Junior infants to sixth class enjoyed learning new skills and playing Tag Rugby.

The programme was a great success due to the enthusiasm of all the children, encouraged by their teachers. There has been a real improvement in all of their skills and abilities during their time with the Leinster Rugby CRO.

A Blitz is due to take place in the coming months, allowing some students to compete against other Fingal schools participating in the programme.

Should your school like to get involved with the Play Rugby programme please contact your local Community Rugby Officer or for Fingal based schools contact Christian Stemmet on 087-9118642 or
