On a blustery Wednesday morning in Cabra, over 260 5th and 6th class students from six of the local primary schools descended on Parkview Community Centre to participate in a Tag rugby blitz.

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.

On the back of such a successful blitz, Dublin City Council and Leinster Rugby are delighted to announce the start of a new mini rugby club in the Cabra area. The Cabra Crusaders is run by Leinster Rugby, and is all about 'Giving Rugby a Try'.
