Gerry McCleery, Skerries CCRO, ably assisted by Jack Hanratty, CRO Dublin Inner City, successfully ran a blitz for two National schools from two non rugby playing areas…

In all, 106 sixth class children took part in the event. The players were divided into eight teams and each team got three games ensuring everyone got plenty of activity.

“There was only one participant who is currently playing with Skerries RFC so the potential is huge”, said McCleery. “Some of these children will go to Skerries Community College and in my experience that if they enjoyed the Tag rugby they will try the full game in secondary school.”
