Northsiders shine in blitz

Four schools from north Dublin were represented in the first year contact blitz held at the DCC pitches on Clontarf Road.

The blitz is the first in a pathway to get children in the area to play in the post-Christmas DCC Cups.

Players from St Kevin's Finglas, St Vincent's Glasnevin, St David's Artane and Chanel College Coolock served up a spectacle of free-flowing rugby, all the more remarkable as the majority of players were new to the game.

With training starting in three further secondary schools in the area pre-Christmas, the DCC Cup should be one to watch. For any more information on rugby in the DCC North area, contact CRO Colm Finnegan at colm.finnegan@leinsterrugby.ie or on 0877692257.
