Leinster Rugby CCRO Stephen Coy with a group of the transition year girls from Cnoc Mhuire Granard who took part in the ‘Play Rugby’ Programme…

Stephen Coy (CCRO) has been introducing all aspects of the game to both boys and girls within the school. More recently, the transition year girls have completed the Leinster Rugby six week play rugby programme in conjunction with Stephen and the Longford ladies club.

In this they have progressed from learning the basic core skills of passing and receiving the ball to more complex areas such as the tackle, ruck, scrum and line-out in which they really enjoyed learning about.

Great credit and acknowledgement must go to their teacher Brenda Kearney who has been very enthusiastic about there progress and taking part, and will contine to teach Tag rugby and fun games to improve upon their new skills.

If any other schools or programmes in the Longford area would like Stephen to introduce rugby to there students please don’t hesitate to call him on 086-8254516.
