Borris hit by rugby bug

STUDENTS from transition year in Borris VEC have completed a six-week rugby programme with Leinster Rugby CCRO Wesley Whitten.

It was the students' first taste of rugby with a number of them looking forward to joining Co Carlow rugby club to further their playing development and enjoyment of the game.

Teacher Orla Bambury was delighted with the programme.

She said: "The students really enjoyed the six weeks and it was great to see such a positive response from the students to a new sport."

More rugby is planned in the school in the coming months.
