Cill Dara to raid Paris

CILL DARA RFC U-13s hope to emulate their Leinster heroes' recent victory over French opposition as they embark on their second annual tour to France to compete in the prestigious Challenges Rugby D'Orsay tournament in Paris.

The tournament has more than 100 teams from 20+ clubs, including Stade Fran├žais and Racing Club de Paris, and takes place on the same weekend as the Top 14 final.

Buoyed by recent results, the Cill Dara boys will be heading to Paris at the top of their game, having won the finals of the Leinster Metro Section C and the North Midlands Area Cup and narrowly missing out in the Leinster Bowl final.

Last year, the Cill Dara tourists were beaten in the semi-finals and this year they are hoping to go all the way.
