EARLIER this month the Leinster Treble Trophy Tour came to the Gorey area in Wexford and students got to see the Amlin Challenge Cup, Pro12 Trophy and the British & Irish Cup.

Everywhere we went we were greeted with smiles and cheers and in some places a vast knowledge of the trophies. In the week, the tour visited 12 schools in total. These schools included the massive Gorey Community School, the newly founded Creagh College, Coláiste Bhríde Carnew and Coláiste An Atha Kilmuckridge.

Also visited were some primary schools which consisted of St Kevin's National School Tara Hill, Castletown National School, St Josephs CBS, Gorey Central School, Court National School Monamolin but to name a few.

In each school all the children got the opportunity to hold and lift the trophies. The trophy tour is a great opportunity of budding stars or rugby fans in general to see what the boys in blue are playing for each week.

Next to be visited are Kilkenny's primary schools, so if you're from Kilkenny keep an eye out for those three trophies travelling through your town.

Keep up to date on exclusive news and photos from the tour by following Leinster Trophy Tour on Facebook and @LeinsterTrophyT on Twitter.
