Cheatharlach kick-off

HISTORY was made in Co Carlow rugby club last week when Gaelcholáiste Cheatharlach played Kildare Community School in the school's first rugby game.

A great day's rugby was had by both teams with several players on both teams getting their first taste of the game.

The match was organised by Leinster Rugby CCROs Wes Whitten and Myles Medlicoott and refereed by former Co Carlow player and Leinster rugby CRO Maurice Logue.

A big thank you to the Carlow groundsmen Stephen Fleming and Paddy Munnelley for having the pitch in excellent condition.
