Schools in the Maynooth and Kilcock area got a special visitor last week as the Leinster Trophy tour, sponsored by Bank of Ireland was in town for the day…

The schools that were involved were Scoil ui fhiaich Maynooth ,Presentation Girls school Maynooth, Educate Together Maynooth, Scoil Coca Naofa Kilcock and Scoil Dara kilcock

Trophies that were on display on the day were the Amlin Challenge Cup, British and Irish Cup and RaboDirect PRO12. It is the first time ever Leinster has one all three so there was great excitement in the area.

There was much excitement in every school on the day, which is a well earned reward for all for their hard work and great participation in the Leinster Rugby program which has been a great success in all schools.

Thanks to all schools and teachers who facilitated us on the day and helped us put on a great display for the children.

If anyone would like future information on rugby in the North Kildare area email Niall McCann at or if any area would like a visit from the trophies email,
