Sophie visits Loretto

Ireland women's international Sophie Spence visited Loretto College in Swords recently to help conduct a training session with the girls and speak to transition-year students.

The 25 students have been put through a four-week tag rugby programme, overseen by Leinster CCRO Scott Broughton, which culminated in the visit of Sophie.

The session included skill drills and five v five tag rugby matches. Sophie was very impressed by the girls' enthusiasm and willingness to take on board feedback she was giving them. Teacher Donna Graham said: "That was brilliant; the girls really enjoyed it".
