Sacred Heart NS in Blanchardstown has completed a six week Tag rugby pilot programme in which 28 teachers from the school received coaching…

The programme was coordinated by Ciaran Lyons and delivered by Leinster Rugby/ Fingal County Council’s community rugby officer, Christian Stemmet.

The programme consisted of training sessions involving both teacher and pupil in a fun and safe rugby environment. The pilot programme was a resounding success as proved by the teacher interest. 

The school, on completion of the programme, also received a resource pack to continue upon the foundation now set. The resource pack was co-funded by Leinster Rugby and Fingal County Council.
