Westmanstown lift first youth prize

WESTMANSTOWN/GARDA RFC only started their mini/youth section, under the direction of Damien Maher, in August 2011, but already the initiative has witnessed results.

The club claimed a first trophy at underage level when their Under-13s defeated St Mary's in the Leinster Under-13 League.

Their coach, Paul Quinn, reflected: "The team is very much local based, with pupils from St Patrick's, St Brigid's, Scoil Thomais, Castleknock Community College and other schools in the area.

"We hope to consolidate the connection with Castleknock Community College next year, whom we assist by providing coaches on each Wednesday."

Westmanstown RFC run their annual Herald Leinster Rugby Summer Camp from August 12-16. Early-bird bookings are now been taken. Visit www.leinsterrugby.ie/camps.
