Balbriggan tag blitz a hit

SIXTH-CLASS students of St Molaga's NS, Balbriggan, recently completed their six-week Play Rugby programme, which concluded with an inter-class tag rugby blitz.

With more than 120 boys and girls taking part each week and each one enjoying their experience in learning new rugby skills, a lot of fun was had by all.

Much anticipation led up to the blitz with the students picking out their team names, and as the teams made their way to the pitches, the sun decided it would join us too.

Over the next two hours each team played out their matches in great spirit and everyone had a fantastic time displaying all the new skills they had gained over the previous six weeks.

Many thanks to all who made the morning a great success, especially Ms De Faoite for facilitating the programme and Gerry McCleery and Michael Woods for their help in refereeing on the day.

If any other schools, colleges or community groups in the Balbriggan area wish to participate in a similar Play Rugby programme, please contact Billy Phelan (CCRO Balbriggan RFC) on 086-8688314 or by e-mail at billyphelan10@gmail.com
