Head of Connacht Rugby Summer Camps Emer O'Dowd was on hand to escort the trophy as she promoted the recently launched Camps.

There was huge excitement as both pupils and teachers grabbed the chance to take a few pictures with the cup with more than one or two 'selfies' on show.

Connacht Summer Camps are now taking bookings with 13 locations all around the province.

The camps are run by fully qualified staff and will be visited by some of our senior players during the week. For more information and to book online visit connachtrugby.ie/camps or call 091561568

Creggs to host junior inter-pro

Fresh from their second-half comeback to beat reigning champions Leinster last weekend, the Connacht Junior team will take on Munster in their final interpro tomorrow at Creggs RFC.

Last weekend's victory started with a superb Colman Maher try and was capped by a conversion and penalty from Connemara's Shane Sweeney; despite Leinster's best efforts and continued pressure Connacht held out for a dramatic 10-6 victory, their first over Leinster in three years.

Tomorrow's last-round match against Munster kicks off at 2.30 at The Green in Creggs.
