Malahide students show skills

Primary school students from St Andrew's NS and Oliver Plunkett's NS took part in Leinster Rugby's Play Rugby Programme for six weeks up to Halloween and 150 pupils descended on Malahide Castle for a blitz.

The fourth-class pupils from both schools were eager, with two teams from St Andrew's and eight teams from Oliver Plunkett's. The games were hammered out with some excellent displays of tag rugby and try-scoring skills. By lunchtime the blitz was over and the teachers took their tired, but happy, students back to school.
