On a crisp sunny Wednesday morning in Clontarf FC, over 160 5th and 6th class students from four of the local primary schools competed in a tag rugby blitz.

Schools that attended on the day were Greenlanes NS, Howth Road NS, Spingdale NS and St Brigid's BNS.

Pupils had prepared for the blitz with the help of Club Community Rugby Officer Stephen Maher for the past six weeks. The schools, teachers and pupils showed great commitment preparing for the big day and it really showed with a high level of skill and sportsmanship.

Thanks to the principals and staff from each of the schools for attending the blitz and helping to make the day a huge success. Thank you to the pupils for togging out and turning the day into both a competitive and good-natured event, enjoyed by the teachers and parents in attendance.

Also a special thanks to the TY students from Mount Temple Comprehensive for their refereeing and coaching throughout all of the games.

If any other schools in and around the Clontarf area would like to participate in the tag rugby programme please contact Stephen Maher on 0861994569 or email ClontarfCCRO@leinsterrugby.ie.
