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 email@example.com or on 0877692257.
