Buccaneers RFC was the venue for a girls' U-10 and U-12 Provincial blitz last Saturday.
The blitz saw 12 clubs represented in all with, Mullingar, Portumna, Claremorris, Ballinasloe, Castlebar, Monivea, Oughterard, Virginia, Creggs, Tullamore and Galwegians all in action.
The weather held off just long enough to ensure all the players in attendance got the opportunity to display their rugby skills.
As soon as the action in Dubarry Park ended, many of the players involved made their way to the Sportsground where they welcomed Connacht on to the pitch as they faced Scarlets in a top of the table Pro12 clash - which the Westerners won.
The final instalment of an action packed day saw the girls entertain the crowd by taking part in a series of games at half-time on the Sportsground turf.
