Scoil Mochua hosted the tag blitz where Leinster Rugby’s and NUIM Barnhall CCRO Gareth Murray facilitated the day which saw 175 boys and girls from 5th and 6th class participating…

In what was a rainy and slippery day not ideal for rugby, all the pupil’s involved really stuck to their guns, and played an expansive game of rugby. There was no shortage of potential future stars and all who participated did the school proud.

Helpers from NUIM Barnhall’s first team along with Leinster Rugby’s own Tom McKeown and Sophie Spence helped oversee a very successful day.

A huge thanks goes out to all the teacher’s and pupils for making it such a successful and enjoyable day. Scoil Mochua is looking forward to taking part and competing in more Leinster Rugby competitions and this is certainly a school with a bright rugby future ahead of them.

Any School in the Celbridge, Leixlip or Lucan area looking to get involved in Leinster rugby programmes should contact Gareth Murray at BarnhallCCRO@leinsterrugby.ie or on 085 – 7341464.
