Students revelling in red-hot Trophy Tour

The Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Treble Trophy Tour continued apace this past week with visits to schools surrounding Ratoath RFC in Co Meath with our march around the 12-county army continuing to Dundalk RFC, Co Louth over the past three days.

Ratoath Senior National School was our first visit of the week where hundreds of pupils turned out to lift and have their photos taken with the PRO12 trophy, Amlin Challenge Cup and the British and Irish Cup.

During our time in Meath, schools across Dunboyne, Dunshaughlin, Ratoath and Rathbeggan were visited. The rest of the week was spent in the Wee County of Louth where we spent time visiting primary and secondary schools in the vicinity of Dundalk RFC. From here the tour continued on to Carlingford National School on the banks on Carlingford Lough.

Highlight of the week came when we visited the picturesque Cooley Peninsula, the location of Monksland National School.

This school was the primary school of our very own Rob and Dave Kearney. The students were delighted to see the trophies and enjoyed listening to stories from the teachers of what the Kearney duo were like as pupils.

Next week, the tour's busy schedule continues as we start off in Co Westmeath and Midland Warriors RFC. From there we return to the Capital, with visits to schools in the vicinity of Coolmine RFC, Malahide RFC and Sutton RFC.
