THE young women of Listowel are evidently every bit as rugby mad as their male counterparts if the massive response to a Listowel Rugby Club call for female players is anything to go by.
International ladies' rugby stars Marie Louise Reilly and Currow's Siobhán Fleming were in Listowel for the club's recent social when the call went out for players for an underage ladies' team
"We had a massive response to it," organiser Kieran O'Reilly - Marie-Louise's brother - said. "So now we are organising another big day for this new side of the club with a barbecue and other fun events taking place on Friday, August 9, between 12noon and 2pm at the town park. It's all part of the IRFU's Give it a Try day and we'd love for anyone interested in giving it a try to come along."
