Heineken Cup visits Clogher Road as part of community initiative

The Heineken cup paid a recent visit to Clogher Road Community Centre, in conjunction with the launch of a Community Rugby Initiative between Leinster Rugby and Dublin City Council.

Sports development officer Mitch Whitty has put together a six-week programme on Thursdays from 5pm-6pm at the community centre.

Locals Guinness RFC have started promoting and developing their youth section through coaching in schools and it is envisaged that these links created will establish strong foundations to making rugby a popular sport in the area.
